march 14/19


ok so i am in banff
writing songs at the banff centre for witchcraft and wizardry
my work ethic needs some work
played some ice hawkey with the locals
but i mostly wander around until i find a piano to sleep under
usually i don't have to go far
i eat ice cream everyday
and i met a new friend named bobby dove and she gave me a hat to wear
and also a t shirt and also an album to listen to
and we wrote a song together
it's called more than i can take
i have written four others
for all of you mathmagicians
that makes five
they are as follows:

 

there is always a first (and always a last)

norah jones at closing time

every thursday night

abstinence makes the heart grow fonder

 

and i am working on one called moon river
i think it is going to be a hit
anyways
i could be over it
feels weird to try and push 'em out
and i am almost tired of ice cream
too soon to tell

hello pinky
it's been awhile
this week has been weird
i ran into two old friends at the blues music club
one on thursday and one on friday
i quit drinking two and a half years ago give or take
so i don't see some folks the way i used to
heck i don't even see myself the way i used to
anyways
the thursday one sez: i love you i missed you are you playing music
he was drunk of course
i just looked at him while eating premium plus crackers out of my pocket
the friday one sez: are you on parole?
and i just looked at him like he was a crazy person until he sez: i'm joking i'm joking
anyways
needless to say i'm taking a brief hiatus from the blues music club
and will be at the brick and whiskey tonight
entertaining other people that i used to know, well still do, but i used to, too
anyways
since we're in the spirit of visiting old friends
i've been skating through some old songs to play
and look here what i found:

OLD SONGS I DONT PLAY YAY YAY I FORGOT ABOUT THESE

might sing em tonight
that is if my parole officer is okay with it

with love,

november 25/18
 

chasing something mystical
trying to get as close to the flame as possible without touching it
bound to get burned a couple of times
some may not be so lucky

braden sings malvina reynolds
(may god bless her)






november 5/18

look below and find
a photo of a man in a quiet room
playing music
before he goes out into another
room with a stage
to play the same music
in front of other human beans
before he goes back into the quiet room
to play more music
before he goes out into a car to go
to another place
with another room
to play music in

november 2/18

stomach feels like a safeway bag
hanging from the corner
of a glove compartment
there to swallow up unwanted bits
of corn nuts apple seed
hummus carrot finger nail
coffee cup sea snack bingo beans
there to tackle almost indigestible bouts of insecurity
aerobar wrappers
cheesie dust
song ideas
here's one:

'who are you to tell me who you think i am not'

anyways
there is mold underneath the water bottle cap
and i have brought it to the ironwood 
with hopes of using their dishwasher
doing a short set before oysterband 
and i just might bring my teeth 
in case there is a picture

 





november 1/18
