A Million and None words…

“Do I have nothing good left to say? Do I need Whiskey to start fuelling my complaints?”
-City and Colour “The Death Of Me”

Writers block is a funny thing. I always try and write regardless of whether it’s “good” or if it’ll ever be “published” or not. But I still consider shitty writing to be writers block. Shitty as in, unoriginal, unimaginative, not from the soul, meaningless, uninspired, etc. I remember the days when I could write numerous (full) songs in a day or less. Granted, some needed editing and some were good where they stood, but as a younger, more angsty, youth I felt compelled to say things regardless of consequence. These days my filter keeps me slightly more reserved. Maybe it’s for the better. Maybe not. Lord knows I don’t need to spout off any more stupid ignorant shit…. and then sometimes I just think it’s me getting distracted from having way more things on my mind.

Currently I have an instrumental that is a work in progress looping on repeat over and over, and I suddenly was reminded of my most recent release “Neck Tie” and realized I hadn’t shared it on my site yet. Ironic because I think my thought process reminded me of it, due to the fact it was the first song I’d completed in about 10 months. and here I sit, stuck again with nothing to say. Or rather, a million things on my mind and no single direction.

I’d love to be able to focus at the moment, but I need to post this video so it’s one thing I can cross off my list of To-Do’s before I pile on 800 more. I really hope you enjoy it. Lots of people have sent me some really amazing messages regarding it, some people say it’s awesome, have purchased it on itunes and tell me it gives them goosebumps…. others say it’s disrespectful to the subject (but hey what goes around comes around?!)

I would love to know what you think, so feel free to leave feedback on the YouTube Comments, share it, and repost it in your blog or Facebook or wherever.

To anyone asking or concerned – No, I’m not gonna hang myself. It’s metaphorical to the subjects last name. Hope you like it! KING DYLAN – NECK TIE (Official Video)
