Honey Diamond

Honey Diamond

Aww I wrote a love song called “Honey Diamond” I like the lyrics most.  More piano than usual too.  The form is based off of Type O Negative’s take on “Cinnamon Girl”. This is my last Eight Bar Embryo production before releasing the Uncomfortable EP Pt. 2 next month in October. In the meantime I’ll be studying how to best release and promote a project and launching my newsletter: The

Mental Health For Musicians – iBroke (A Communications Story)

I broke my phone. I’m not proud of it but what’s done is done. It’s far better to be able to talk about how you feel. But, talk as you may, you’ve got to feel like you’re being listened to as well. A Communication Breakdown can lead to to broken phones and other mishaps. Watch the video and don’t let it be you.  When you’re done, please subscribe for

Mental Health For Musicians – Green, Yellow and Red Zones

Mental Health For Musicians – Green, Yellow and Red Zones

ROAD RAGE! As musicians we’re all sensitive people with so much to give. Understand me, Sugar. For real though.  We need to chill.  Enough of this 27 Club. Enough of swinging from a noose. In this video I describe a model of mental states that might help you NOT become the next headline. Actually, let’s be honest – you won’t become that headline unless you’re famous. So, let’s make

Mental Health For Musicians – Intro

Mental Health For Musicians – Intro

Welcome to more chill “You’re crazy…and that’s where I come in.”  That should be my new pickup line.  It’s not, though.  What it is is the mental health for musicians intro to a new video series intended to help musicians overcome  challenges. I plan to fill a playlist with videos containing, tips, tricks, techniques, strategies and tactics for making it through the tough times.  Check out the other related

Dream High

Dream High

Spark it up So this one’s about dreams and stuff. I don’t smoke weed all that much anymore but, you know, once a stoner… As you might have read, these Eight Bar Embryos (8BE) are me trying to improve my skills.  I want to release one a week but it’s tough.  In reality this one took three weeks to finish from first starting. It’s based on Soma Sonic’s “Crazy

Careless

Careless

Apparently ijdgaf! Songs are fun because you get to expose different shades of meaning. This is about being all independent, not caring, then falling in love. But then, not caring, I sent some dim witted shit during the courting process (as we are wont to do) and screwed it up due to carelessness. See how that works? I can’t really recommend any dating products butt if you’re interested in

100 Subscribers!!!

100 Subscribers!!!

Ok, 98 fml …99… I currently have 98 subs on the Hexspa YouTube channel.  Kind of exciting.  My first video was uploaded around late 2009.  I started with a namesake channel but I deleted all the stuff off of it so now it’s just Hexspa. I remember when I made my first penny through adsense.  It was a cool moment.  I’m not raking in millions just yet but maybe

Soft Dick

Soft Dick

Great title: “Soft Dick”. Skrillex said to do what puts a smile on your face.  When I thought of this name I lol’d. It’s got an angle to it, besides the novelty, which you songwriting people might enjoy. Patreon is launched!  Please go over there and consider patron-ing me a dollar or whatever so I can drink coffee.  Also, check out the eight bar embryo tracks for more great

Green Monkey

Green Monkey

Another Color/Animal friggin title. I read an article about music producers.  It was actually probably about Rick Rubin.   It said that he’d get “has-beens” with “writer’s block” (which I put in quotes because people like Neil Strauss say it doesn’t exist – and I agree) to just write two words. Two words. I say again, TWO WORDS, that inspire them – and have that in by next week.

Bubbles

Bubbles

Got Reggae? Had a conversation about when I took a shower on the beach by Santa Monica pier wearing only bubbles. Someone else had a similar experience wearing only sun. Hence the lyrics. Not to whine, it’s hard to make a track every week.  I’m not just making tracks but also transcribing a song and writing one.  That’s three projects.  What I’m thinking to do is, instead of making
