  • Some days you try to write songs, and you practically finish an album. Some days you try to write songs, and nothing happens. I’m have the second type of day. Time for some whiskey.

    One of my songs was used in a cat video on YouTube. I’ve finally made it. I’m winning the internet. — Kavalier Calm

    Me: Do you believe in love at first sight?
    Girl at the bar: Yes. Do you?
    Me: I didn't until I saw you.
    What's it like to be in love? How would you explain it to someone who has never been, and has lost hope their ever will?

    When I fell in love, I realized people wrongly describe it as the BEST part of life. Really, it’s the ONLY part of life worth acknowledging. When I fell in love, I saw that all my fears and doubts and joys were nothing compared to my love. It gives you a new perspective, and life is never the same again.

    Me: I like to cook.
    Girl at the bar: What's your specialty?
    Me: Breakfast.
    Girl at the bar: How good is it?
    Me: Do you really want to find out?

    If you want to write songs, you have to learn to see the music in things. Anyone can learn the math behind making music, but very few can identify stories or images or moments that are worthy of being retold through song, that have enough feeling to be the foundation for a song. Doing this requires emotional awareness but also humility. Because you may wish to focus on your instrument and telling stories of your choosing, but you must also recognize that you are the world’s instrument, and it wants to use you to tell stories.

    Me: Your imaginary friend told me I should come talk to you.
    Girl at the bar: What? I don't have an imaginary friend.
    Me: Sure you do. She's been hitting on my imaginary friend for hours.
    Me: Excuse me. I just wanted to tell you you're the most beautiful girl I've seen in my life.
    Girl at the bar: How many girls have you said that to?
    Me: Many.
    Girl at the bar: That's what I thought.
    Me: But you're more beautiful than all of them, so I wasn't lying.

    Her skin was dark; it had a romance with the sun. Could we have a ménage à trois?

    You: Will you ever turn you back on me?
    Me: No, I'll never turn around again.
    You: Why?
    Me: Because I live to see your face.

    i guess my screen did a thing about your cat song…it’s a sign.

    I saw the sign. And I believe.

    A song for a guy who just can’t admit he’s a cat person (inspired by this post on reddit). Much love. — Kavalier
