Rap Music and Typewriters…
I have started to type my rap lyrics out on my typewriter. At first, I started doing it to simply make use of a typewriter, that had just been sitting in the corner of my room collecting dust. Once I started typing my lyrics out, I found the experience quite peaceful….relaxing. When I began I remember how much weight I had to use on the typewriter, my fingers were no where near accustom to using that amount of force, when typing. Now I feel like I am going to break my flimsy mac keyboard if I am not careful.
I wish I brought my typewriter to Japan. I do not know what it is but typing things out the old fashion way conjures up unfamiliar feelings. Last night I typed out a few pages of gibberish. The pages were filled with fragments of my thoughts, nothing more. The moment I started typing, I realized how hard it would be to stop.
You ever feel like you were sitting on something special? Whether an idea or a concept or anything, but you continual sat on it because you had no idea what to do with it, if you got up off of it? For the longest time I knew I wanted to write. For the longest time I knew there was something I have to write, not for the sake of man kind or anything but for my sake. Everyday I can feel the fragments slowly coming together…Only I have no idea what it is….Is that weird?
I miss Japan….
