Last weekend one of my best friends was over at my place as we were preparing for a new podcast we started with a couple other friends. It's a discussion podcast where we talk about a variety of topics and hopefully entertain while doing so. Check it out here.
However that wasn't the point of this post! As we were chatting he mentioned he needed to grab one of my CDs to give to someone as a gift. The next part of the conversation was what was interesting so I felt like sharing here.
Friend: I need to grab a CD from you to give as a gift to a friend.
Me: Ok, that's no problem.
Friend: Yeah, they're starting to get to that stage in life where they really identify with your music.
Me: What exactly do you mean by that?
Friend: Well you know the whole "hate their life / hate their job / relationships going badly" stage.
Me: Hahahaha, well that's one way to put it, I guess.
I wasn't sure if I should be laughing, but it did garner that response for some reason. Although my music doesn't seem that serious or dark to me, it's not exactly the first time I've heard how "depressing" it is. To me it's just more "real" than some other stuff out there. I try not to sugarcoat the things I'm going through and I happen to be a writer who is most inspired when I'm having a tough time with life. I seem to just let it out and then I feel better. So anyway, that story stuck in my mind and I told him I would have to write down that quote, so there it is.
Until next time. Take care.
