Yeah, that’s what I’m doing every morning. The surgery went well, and the incisions are healing, but there’s still three deep cuts in my abdomen and they hurt like a bitch. So I get up and render myself virtually insensate right away, and will for the foreseeable future.
That actually led to a spark of creativity yesterday. I played my Madden game for a while, then got to thinking about what else I could do. I had most of the pieces of a song that had been destined for something called the Summer Solstice Challenge at writingforums.com, before it became apparent that my hernia surgery would have to become a greater priority than it had been.
Didn’t get the thing done in time for the contest. It had been set up for vocals and stuff, but I’ll not be able to do those for quite some time, and so I fashioned a lead part out of out-takes from earlier versions, made a new melody figure, and reassembled the thing.
is the name of the piece. It’s just over ten minutes long, a shred/symphony of sorts. Lots of detail, downloadable only from this location.
I’ve also begun the first of the stories for another Crazytown collection.
