It's my birthday!
on: June 04, 2014, 22:47:14
Hello Kitchenites, how's things?

Thankyou for my Pale Blue Dot comments, I didn't want to seem to be bumping it so I thought I'd thank you here :)

I got an iPad for my birthday :)

...and my wife has to work this evening  >:(

so, I wrote a song  ;D
and recorded a little live performance on my new toy  ;D

It's about the sly way in which age gradually changes us without us noticing  :-\

Secretly Painting Me Grey  (I hope you likey)

Happy birthday Habitat  ;D

This is pretty fantastic - you know there was a time I could critique and comment because I wanted songs to sound like I want

BUT

I think everyone in the kitchen has there own style and has well proved themselves as fantastic writers

This is ace

Really ace  ;D

And such confidence in the delivery and performance  :)

Hey Habitat

Happy Birthday!!

liked the song - you certaintly have your own style!! I remember watching your live set on the other forum a few mnths back and loving it - little lights?? if I remember right I thought was an excellent song.

This has some really clever ideas in it - loved the opening line pulled you right into the song.

Good work - thanks for uploading!

Ha habs,

i agree with Kafla and Fisch, a very good song, very nicely flowing melody!!!
cool! and great performance

and that camera on tha i pad is good  :o I guess you can install a DAW and all goodies you need for songwriting and recording on it...i wonder whether REAPER can also run on a i pad????

I'm a bit late -  but happy birthday !  :)  :)

Cool to hear some new material of yours again.
The title sounds really intriguing I think, quite poetic actually.

I agree, the melody flows nicely.

But I like the guitar playing even better. The chord progression just seems like a perfect fit for this song to me, and finger-picked it sounds so much prettier than strumming would.

Haha and awesome Tshirt  ;D
