Here's something for shits and giggles: I'm writing a song. Yup, I started it a few days ago because I was so hyped up about playing guitar again after listening to and learning to play The Shins song The Past and Pending, which is one of my favorites. At first I just played around with chords I thought went well together (first let me tell you that I'm not an excellent musician, I've played the guitar for a few years and have had some lessons but I don't fully understand more of the technical aspects) and then I tried out some harmonies with the chords. At that point I still didn't know what the song would be about and I didn't have a chorus. Then I had an epiphany, or perhaps it was a hot flash, and being the nerd I am I realized the song would be about the relationship between Tara and Willow from BtVS. Yes, I'm writing a song about the love between two fictional characters.
After that things seemed to flow a little easier. Now I have a complete song, albeit a little rough. It even has a bridge and everything! *is proud* Enough of that, how about that Michael Phelps? Seriously, did anyone catch the 100 butterfly last night? It was frakkin' unbelievable.
