I have mixed feelings today. I was just listening to some porcupine tree/Steven Wilson (for the first time) and think it's pretty great. Makes me want to make new music and possibly write lyrics (which I never do) and try and learn to sing.
Recently I also bought an 8-string and have been listening to Animals as Leaders, another big influence is Opeth.
Right now I'd like to mix everything together but at the same time, I feel like I'm totally unexperienced and nothing will come out of my attempts to create something.
It feels pretty strange. I'm going to start to learn to play the drums too tomorrow.

Anyone ever had these mixed feelings and lots of new stuff going on at the same time?

Yeah I hear corridos and I wish I could place blast beats in them and make narco metal

I've just bought a jaw harp and now feel a combination of exctiemtent to learn a new instrument, certainty I won't actually bother to properly, and indifference towards such a silly instrument.

Have you tried actually doing it? That's the first step. Making a thread on an internet forum rarely does anything good for my creativity. Maybe that's just me though.


I have many things that are unfinished. Bits of ideas everywhere.

I'm experiencing it currently... Got a job again, so now get money on Friday

wanted to set up my fisktank again, found out tank is too small to keep fish and is a shrimp tank... talked to dad about what to do, but my gf already bought me an aquatic plant to put in as I had set it up already and began cycling it. So now I'm getting shrimp, but now I'm all "but I dunno how to care for shrimp, what if I need specialist water? or substrate (floor pebbles/soil)? or other stuff? I'm too impatient, I want to go buy some shrimp right now and dump them in, but I need to test the water first, and get a heater for it, and also find out what to do with this plant.... I duno if I need anything special with the plant yet either, but all I know it that the shrimp will die if I dump fertiliser or stuff in, but I think I may need to get something to put CO2 in, esp cos I wanna get some more plants so the shrimp are happy and can hide

oh and this is stressful because I'm on a split shift, its 6am to 2pm this week, and 2pm - 10pm next week. So its hard for me to get the stuff midweek which I want to do because, again, I'm impatient

im guessing that the shrimp will exhale carbon dioxide and the plant will just use that? but shrimp seem like kind of weird pets haha.

that's what I thought! but not enough apparently, they are only tiny I guess, but the only real bad thing that happens is algae starts to grow on the plants, which the shrimp then eat lol, so I win I guess

I originally wanted some little crabs, but the tank is taller with a small base, which isn't fair on the crabs they need a big floor to scuttle around on. I will 100% get them if my dad and I decide to get a tropical tank though

I was absolutely going to write a song inspired by a thread here called "Please Pull The Trigger On My Thunder", but then I figured if I did, even if it was played by people who don't suck, it would still sound like the bastard child of Motley Crue, Poison and Limozeen.

Inspiration alone cannot carry you to actually flesh out and complete work.
