    "I think that manipulation of time, musically and lyrically, is part of what makes songwriting so interesting. Because what four minute song has ever been about exactly four-mintues of someone's life? Within the structure of a simple four-minute song, you can play with what happens between the beginning and the end and warp the sense of time. A four-minute song might dwell on one special second of our life. And that one second might represent a turning point, something that implies a whole lifetime." - Ben Folds, A Dream about Lightning Bugs

  • On this episode, we listen to “This is Living” by Pontiak, a rock band based out of Virginia.
    "Anxiety is excitement without the breath" - Fritz Perls
    "Look at it this way, there are many here among us for whom the life force is best represented by the livid twitching of one tortured nerve, or even a full-scale anxiety attack. I do not subscribe to this point of view 100%, but I understand it, have lived it. Thus the shriek, the caterwaul, the chainsaw gnarlgnashing, the yowl and the whizz that decapitates may be reheard by the adventurous or emotionally damaged as mellifluous bursts of unarguable affirmation." - Lester Bangs
