April Shananigans - The End

Well, it's the last day of April, the first day of recording and the 17th day of an accident-free workplace. We should all be quite proud.

Back to our regular shananignas (read: never posing since the MBA keeps me too busy) after this.

But first...

-Smile... I dare you.

Dear world, today I enter the studio with the greatest band in the world.

Today I'm forcing myself to submit my paper. Beautiful, sweet escape.

Don't whisper in my ear that there's nothing to fear since our love is a fire

April Shananigans - Repeat

Rainy day... writing paper.

-This could mean so much more if I thought there was love on the tip of my tongue

A little further now... get back to where we're comfortable.

Up, back, or down?

April Shananigans - Tradition

I've been listening to this song on this morning for 15 years... if that isn't depressing, I don't know what is.

-I've got oh so many pretty things, but none just as pretty as you

April Shananigans - Respect

Don't simply respect your elders... learn from them.

-All the trust you place inside of me, it don't feel right

-Put yourself in someone elses' bare feet

April Shananigans - Slow and Steady

Still 2 weeks left in this term... and the report I've got now basically just blends into my work for the summer. No real break in sight... but I suppose its just a matter of time.

-So this isn't love, it isn't hate... its something in between

April Shananigans - Nerd

Jer for the win.

One of my favorite new bands has a new music video? Don't mind if I do...

April Shananigans - Who's it gonna be

Some days you've simply got to decide: is the world stepping on you or are you stepping on the world?

-At the end of the night, what she asked of me would have made Caligula blush

April Shananigans - Narcissist

Call me one if you must, but I'm so excited to record this whole song at the end of April, I'm pretty sure someone just peed my pants.

-Easy come and easy go ain't how I'm living anymore

April Shananigans - Them Blues

"The blues is when you love somebody don't love you."

Time to get shit done.

April Shananigans - Exhaustion

Sometimes... things get a little much.

-I'm going to kiss the devil and make his problems mine

Friday, April 8, 2011

April Shananigans - Limits

Halfway through this last run towards the goal and still piles upon piles to read and write. Yup... hittin the wall feels about right.

-I felt so bad for oh so long for the words I left burning inside of you

Thursday, April 7, 2011

April Shananigans - Louder

The world's too loud... most people would ask to turn it down, but I'd rather just drown it out.

-I've got to pour my heart out this time

April Shananigans - Mornings

I went to the show a few weeks ago with Andrea and since picking up the album, this opening track has been somewhat of a morning anthem. Something about the chiming mandolin just feels like the sun is being dragged out of its habitual slumber.

-For all the harm that I've caused, you know you'd suffer if I stopped

April Shananigans - More of it

Am I too busy to do this again?  Yes... but it was a very healthy, introspective experience last year, so what the hell?

Last year, I set out to share a song a day based on how I was feeling and what I wanted to experience with people.  While I'm already 5 days into my birthday month (stupid MBA, getting in the way of music), you've got to admit this is better than nothing.  Don't expect me to be very verbose; this month is all about the tunes.

-I'm grinning like a man possessed by giants, if them giants was you
