...Drumming Along ;)

...there are times when a blank page yearns to stay that way.  As a basketball coach, I consider it similar to those forgettable days when regardless of the effort, an invisible lid has been placed upon the rim, allowing the act of scoring a bucket to be an impossible feat. 


Love it when that happens...


There are two sides to every coin however, and during those moments of literary bliss, when one's digits simply can not prod the keyboard fast enough, sacrifices are not only to be considered, but should be expected. (As long as the family can make do, that is ;)


Long story short, the latest project is running on all cylinders.  Therefore, I'll be burning the midnight oil until the juices sputter and run dry.  (For those of you in the know, I'm sure you get it.) 


Upcoming, I'll be posting another excerpt from "The Fall," and have been stirring up something special in celebration of hitting the big 300. (Thanks everyone!)


In the meantime, please take a moment to enjoy my son's latest musical achievement.  As it seems, while I've been hard at it, penning "The Fall," my son, (on guitar,) and his pal, (pounding the percussion,) have been working on their game as well.  


Anyone ever hear of Seven Nation Army?  You will now ;)


Enjoy!

Awesome! You've got a talented kid! That's one of the first songs my son learned on his guitar too! So much fun :)

Richard said...

Sounds like you're in your bliss at the moment. Enjoy the trip.

The journey is nearly always better than the destination. Just ask Frodo!

Much luck on your current project. Your son is amazing. Thanks for the kind words on my blog, Roland

Anna Smith said...

I love this song and they do it so well. Jack White better watch out! :)

I usually only get those seamless writing moments when I've either inhaled a giant cup of caffeine or just finishing combing my hair - my best ideas have washed over me during combing, curling or straightening.

Pretty random.

Carla White said...

Good luck with burning that oil! I just took up drums last Septemeber and "Seven Nation Army" was the first song I learned. :)

Nicki Elson said...

Ahh! I LOVE this song!!! I swear, it's been on my mp3 & in a few of my playlists for a while now. Your son & his friend definitely do it justice. :)

So awesome you're in the throes of writing. Go, Elliot, go!

It was very nice to stop by here again after so long. Damn day job's keeping me away from lots of things I'd rather be doing. :(

Sarah Pearson said...

Love this song :-)

Glad to hear the words are flowing.

Elliot Grace said...

Hey Jemi, the boys have been working really hard at their dream. We're proud of them. Thanks for stopping by ;)

Hey Richard, it comes and goes, but the pace is currently favorable ;)

Hey Roland, wise advice, thank you, and for complimenting on the boys!

Hey Anna, I get the honor of listening to them every night, the music rattling around between my ears while yearning for shut-eye. He owes me a house on the shore once he hits it big ;)

Hey Just Me, those priceless random thoughts and ideas are often the source of future best sellers. Jot 'em down, for you just never know.

Hey Carla, its the newest craze, that song, and a good one for jamming with friends. Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Nicki, no worries, that day job is an evil entity, always lingering, always on the take. Enjoyed your comments, thanks so much!

Hey Sarah, perhaps its the music that's currently vibrating the walls, urging the muse onward. Be that the case, keep on playing, boys!

I will be watching for that new excerpt from "The Fall". Sounds like you are making good progress.

The kids sound great! I can't wait for my almost ten-year-old son to start his music lessons. It's so awesome to watch the kiddos get creative.

Tanya Reimer said...

Hey! I do get it! I've been binge writing for two weeks and hit 63k last night!!! Whoo hoo! Plan to get through that painful yet so satisfying climax this weekend. hee hee. Keep in touch.

Enjoyed the music too! Rockstars. Magical.

Elliot Grace said...

Hey Angela, I agree, they're a fun duo to enjoy ;)

Hey Tanya, congrats on 60k! Keep at it, and thanks for dropping by.

Glad to hear the writing's going well.

Terrific song.

Kimberlee Turley said...

Loved the key change at a minute in.

I tried to learn guitar years ago and gave up after one lesson when I couldn't get my fingers to stretch to all the chords. This is also why I gave up on piano. (I can't even split my fingers far enough apart to do a decent "Live long and prosper" Vulcan greeting.)

Hope your writing continues to do well!

Your son's got skills, good for him!

Good luck with your newest project, looking forward to it.

Very nice! Rock on - both of you. =D

Jennifer Hillier said...

NICE! I love this song. Your son is so talented! Wish I could play the guitar. I got stuck with piano lessons growing up (I know, whine whine). :)

Carolyn V said...

Nice job on the guitar! Your son's got talent. ;)

Can't wait to hear more about The Fall!

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Good luck on running on all cylinders. That pace can be hectic. I've entered into that zone once or twice and there are times when I hate it because it seems like I can't focus on anything else.

Donna Hole said...

Not bad at all. This is one of my favorite songs, and they did it justice, for beginners. Big stars in the making :)
