I am not ready to give up the idea of playing music, but it's frustrating putting out the feelers for bandmates when nothing is happening. I know I can get out there for shows, record music, and see where it goes. I have nothing else going on right now, and this would be the ideal time for me to playing music. I can come up with something out of nothing. And when that something becomes a song, there's no better feeling. I still remember the time that Okay Death Ray was playing and I saw people were singing along, that was validation, not that I NEEDED it, that we had a good song. I sing along with songs that mean something and I can get behind, so therefore, nothing was a better feeling than achieving that. That's why I want to still make music. I go to shows anymore, and think why I am not up there. No offensive to the local music around here! We do have some great things happening, and I still believe Indy can be a Midwest stop for the bigger bands as long as they're willing to play here. People need to show that support right back. I'll continue the search and hope that I can keep writing music because why give it up now?
