This is my 19th album-a-day. This one
is a special concept album, the idea being to "use" the sadness from a
recent break-up to like, fuel the creation of emotional music. This
worked for Graham Smith with "Ponyoak", which is like one of the best
lo-fi indie rock albums ever, so why shouldn't it work for me?
Actually, it turns out that spending a whole day writing
self-deprecating songs doesn't really make you feel much better, and
as I've always contended, if you suffer while making music, you must
expect that your listener will suffer when hearing it. Sorry about
that. I do think there are a couple great songs on here, so you can
try to find them or use the handy indicators. I tried really hard to not have "filler", but
made my life even harder by insisting that I'd use nothing but guitar
and voice, and no gimmicks, so I'm not sure I succeeded in that.
Also, I feel the need to point out that not all of these songs are
factual, they are merely themed after real events or feelings or
cliches or whatever.
My other albums are no less oblique, but less pathetically

And hey, I even made two albums with the girl that is the subject
of this one: [H1, H2].
