Black Squirrel (second draft)

I worked on Black Squirrel pretty extensively again this morning.   In the spirit of yesterday’s post, I thought I’d continue to document my work in progress. As evidenced below, I wasn’t kidding when writing that the first draft could change quite substantially. Now verses have an entirely different structure and some chorus lyrics have … Read more

Black Squirrel

Black Squirrel is an idea I’ve been developing for awhile now.   It’s still in an extremely embryonic stage (as evidenced by the lack of a second verse) but I thought I’d post it anyway. I might remove it at some point but if I don’t, it could end up looking totally different down the … Read more

Mistakes and demons once lurking in the night must now be confronted in plain sight. Such is the conceit for Diurnal, a new group of 12 … Read more

Birthday Candles

Awhile back, I talked about a group that would focus specifically on winter 2001.   While I hadn’t committed to it fully, Weezer had also inspired exploring a seasonal release of mini lyrical groupings. Although their SZNZ EPs have featured seven songs on the first day of every season, mine would consist of five pieces … Read more

2001: A Marc Odyssey

So I have some new lyrics (and hopefully a site refresh) coming in the next month or so.   Despite this, I’ve been thinking a bit about what I’d like to do next. My early thoughts have gravitated towards writing an entire group of lyrics based around and influenced by winter. In my mind, winter … Read more
