A Lack Of Oxygen - Tales of crashing satellites

Dave Magario

Grab life by it's thorny bits...

     For me, big decisions have never come easily or been made lightly. I've spent the last year or so slowly rolling an idea around in my head to see it from different angles, in different moods. The idea? A BIG change. A big move. Of course the first red flags are always "Wait, why?" or "You can't leave everything behind!" and "What about everyone you know here?" But those thoughts all stem from fear of the unknown. And let's face it, we've got the internet. No two people are REALLY ever out of touch when there are two computers or cell phones between them. So, putting that train of thought aside, the thought becomes more enticing and easier to approach.

     Where to? There are so many places to see. The traveling/touring I did last year was a drop in the bucket. I got these wallet-sized snapshots of experiences and people and places every day for two weeks. I've never done much traveling, so I'd say it's about time I packed up what I need and found somewhere else to be. I've got family making a big move to Austin later this year. I may follow that transition and hang out there for a while. But that won't be a permanent thing. 

     There's New York and Los Angeles. And there's New Orleans or Montreal. Seattle or San Diego. Two very different Portlands on either side of the nation. Then there's the rest of the whole wild world! Good lord. What have I been waiting for, right? Maturity. General sensibility. Money. A conscious grasp of what I'm about on this green rock spiraling around an average star. Or maybe that's all crap and I've just been too damn scared to step up and grab my life by it's thorny bits and take the chances I've been side-stepping for most of a decade. 

     I've talked to several people about this. I've gotten the same response from them all. "That sounds like a great idea!" But, before I go anywhere, I plan to play some great show. See some even better shows. And spend time collecting the good memories I've forgotten about this place and the people I love. I do not want to leave home with a barrel of only sadness and regret. That will come along. It's unavoidable. But It doesn't have to be everything I remember and feel for Massachusetts. 

 ````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
     Tonight I'm playing a last minute set in Worcester. I don't expect to see many familiar faces there because of the timing. Still, I'm excited to have a chance to play more than a half hour. I'll have an hour or more to work in. That's where I thrive. The long form show is my friend. Room to improvise and let the songs shake off some of their dust. It's been a long time since I've played some of those I have in mind. The lyrics have been buzzing in my head all day as if they were someone else's. I caught myself asking my memory, "who's song is that?" then I probably blushed as I realized, "Oh...stupid. That's yours." 

    I think that's a testament to how I write. I write songs that I like!! Perhaps no one else will get the lyrics or the music, but I write for myself as much as I do for people that enjoy what I create. So maybe it's a little self-serving. Don't I have to be happy with what I write, though? Of course. 

.....This went on a bit longer than I expected it would. I'll have to come back to this and write another time. Maybe after the show if there's energy left for that. Until next time, all five of my readers, I bid you bonne nuit and a happy but mentally challenging weekend.

Fun Friday - The First Rule Of Fight Club

Fun Friday – The First Rule Of Fight Club

 

I cut my finger on some tin foil today. Clearly the world is definitely getting more dangerous by the minute. Never mind the global insurrection against banker occupation (as Max Keiser would say), making a bacon sandwich can be hazardous for more than just your cholesterol.

 

Anyway, it so happens that I caught a re-run of Fight Club the other night. An eminently quotable film, my personal favourites, given that it is some twelve or so years old were:

 

Brad Pitt - “Think of everything we’ve accomplished man. Out these windows we will view the collapse of financial history. One step closer to economic equilibrium.”

 

And…..

 

Ed Norton - “Trust me, everything’s gonna be fine. You met me at a very strange time in my life.”

 

That these lines lingered in my mind will not be entirely surprising to anyone that has read my last few blog posts. When a creative oik gets struck down with a little writer’s block there are a variety of things they can do to try and get past it. They can plough on through, creating almost for the sake of it, just to do the work, even if it comes to pass that what they create is deemed unworthy. They can sit it out and wait for inspiration to strike or they can go and do something else entirely.

 

For the last few months, I’ve done the latter. As ridiculous as it sounds, if I am not making music (and regardless of whether anyone else on earth thinks that’s a good thing or not), in my own head I effectively cease to exist. It’s a good job I don’t get melodramatic about it ;) Reading up on all the fundamentals of how the great economic crisis came to pass has at least occupied my mind whilst the blonde bombshell has sat and looked at me accusingly, wondering why I have neglected her of late. It’s not you, it’s me I tell her. Ahem.

 

And what have I learned? Well, in short, the whole system we’re in is based on a fundamental fraud. Though by nature I am a sentimental old fool, every once in a while I like to try and make sense of things with nothing but cold, hard logic to light my way. The conclusions you can come to are, quite frankly, horrifying, even if it’s a purely intellectual exercise. Watching so-called alternative news channels like Al Jazeera or Russia Today and comparing them to the BBC, Sky News or good ol’ Channel 4 is really quite enlightening. Those occasional astute questions about why we’re so bothered about the humanitarian disaster in Libya, when we’ve all but forgotten about Somalia and the Sudan et al, are clearly burdensome for the ever-revolving cast of politicians who consistently fail to answer the question. Still, we support all claims for democracy don’t we? I mean, at the very least it means we’ll be able to sell them more stuff right? No, not military hardware, don’t be silly, why would we ever do that? Oh, I see. You almost had me going there.

 

Where we are, it literally defies logic. I think I’d better try and get over this writer’s block double quick, maybe learning the piano will help? Otherwise I’ll see you in the basement. I’ll be the one with the plaster over the tin foil cut.

 

Say it with me, the first rule of Fight Club…..

BLOG | Committed to the Cause

Hillsong UNITED - Hosanna ft. Brooke Ligertwood

Last night I was challenged by this song. There’s a line in the song, that says, ‘Break my heart for what breaks yours.’ and I thought to myself, how often do I feel as if my heart breaks for the loss. I remember when I first gave my life to the Lord, my zeal and commitment to the cause was un fleeting. My spirit was consumed with this overwhelming passion for everyone to feel this joy that had overtaken me. I wanted everyone to know of this God who had taken a broken, depressed, and wounded young girl and pieced her back together as if I had never fallen. As the years have gone by, I’ve gotten consumed with “life.” The past few months I’ve been asking for a fresh desire; a fresh anointing. My skill and talent will only take me but so far. Then comes God. The one who gave me these desires, these dreams. I want to see people in need of hope and react with such an urgency to offer them this salvation. I want to forever be committed to the cause of the kingdom.

Huke Green

Huke's first ever hometown show!

Two, YES TWO...shows this Friday at Da Swamp Shak! Come for lunch, then bring the family for Dinner!

You may have noticed a change on the schedule for this coming Friday, March 4. We had been booked to play at Grampy Larry's on Lake Conroe, but Due to a change in ownership and remodel that show was cancelled. Instead We are now playing closer to home... in fact, a home-coming for me as we play in Channelview at 214 Sheldon Rd. at the newly opened Cajun food joint, Da Swamp Shak.

I wouldn't come to play any old place in my hometown, I waited for the RIGHT place to open up, and Da Swamp Shak delivers! They have hands down the BEST Cajun food this side of the Sabine! I have eaten there on many occasions and never had a bad bite. This isn't some frozen food heated up in the microwave, you got your Red Bans and Rice cooked overnight with tender peices of pork. It's hard to suggest something to eat there, because everything from the Blocker Burger, to the Gumbo, To the Fish Poboy with Cajun Mayo has been a home run!

This Friday you get your chance to check out the best new place to eat in East Houston AND have the folks from the True Roots Union entertain you with a lunch AND Dinner show. Come out and Kick Mardi Gras off right, and welcome to your new favorite restaurant!

See Me Falling (Single)

Dave Magario

What're the words to that one?

If you ever wondered about the words to any of my songs, I've finished gathering the majority of them into one place on my website. There's a bunch from my early days of writing that I am mulling over adding but I'm not sure if I want to share some of them... Not my best work. Proud of it, yes, but it's clearly the work of a moody teenager with grandiose ideas, good insight, but an obvious lacking of life experience to grasp the point of what he was trying to say. Heck, I didn't fully understand half the stuff I wrote over the last decade until long after I wrote it.

But that's how it's worked for me. I write a thing and set it aside. Most often it's a few lines at a time here and there. Then I come back, realize a theme, and piece together the makings of a song. Sometimes it all pours out in ten minutes and I have no idea what to make of it. The point is, I've wanted to do this for quite a while; to share the words by themselves and let you see them standing alone without the music.

I hope they still carry an emotive meaning, even if not the same that you feel from the song the lyrics are attached to. For me, it's a reminder that I have a long way to go even if I have come further than I ever thought I could. Reading through some of the songs I don't play much, I find myself wondering
why. It's hard to keep older songs in the forefront when there are new ones piling in around them. Last year I wrote almost 20 songs. For me, that's a HUGE deal. Before that, I was lucky if I churned out 6 acceptable songs. I couldn't keep up with the ideas last year. I even had to let some fade to focus on the songs that came out on top.

I've said all this to encourage you to read and hope that you'll come back looking for more as new songs and old find there way into the 'Songbook.' I almost called it a hymnal, but I figured that's a teensy tiny bit blasphemous. Plus, there's a good chunk of people who don't even know what the crap a hymnal is any-dang-way!

If you're reading this from my blog, head over to www.davemagario.tk and you'll see the link in the main links up top. If you all dig what you read and really do want to see the old, old piano-based songwriting, maybe I can be convinced.

Gaddafi vows to die a "martyr"

We're not a political band, but as individuals we're deeply affected and aware of the events that have been taking place of late.  

Have a safe and happy day, but please remember what is going on around the world. Particularly the horrific attacks in Libya and the lost lives in New Zealand.

Stay strong.

Tautological Tuesday - Preaching To The Choir

Tautological Tuesday – Preaching To The Choir

 

So, I watched the film Inside Job up in Leicester Square yesterday afternoon. Here’s a trailer:

For the uninformed, it’s a documentary about the global banking crisis; how it happened and who was responsible. Yes, that’s right. These are the kind of films I go to see of my own free will……and at £12.95 a ticket, who says capitalism isn’t working?

 

You may well be sick of hearing about it by now, or you may have far more pressing concerns, or your little corner of the world may be just fine thank you. Me, I find this stuff fascinating, not least because my pension fund projections are currently nowhere near what they were supposed to be heh, heh, heh.

 

I’d heartily recommend seeing the film if it has ever crossed your mind why you’ll have to retire later than you expected or if you’ve ever wondered whether you actually will end up working until you die. If not, then don’t, it’ll only depress you ;)

 

There are some splendidly awkward moments in the film where certain interviewees struggle to articulate why the necessary checks and balances were not carried out. You know, the sort of people who earn ten times what you and I ever will in a year. The sort of people whose job it is to ensure that what happened doesn’t happen. Oblivious to the numerous conflicts of interest that were surely apparent to even the most casual observer, they remained unrepentant. Their mantra was still that the system works, that the crisis was a blip, that Obama had no choice but to keep the usual suspects in their posts in spite of his promises of real change, that it is now time for business to get back to normal. It was quite remarkable.

 

How the talking heads that had for some time predicted the collapse, that are predicting there’s worse to come, were either ignored, quietened down or ridiculed was of course the heart of the film. Matt Damon’s sober narration certainly added to the atmosphere of disbelief. In the right circumstances, it is clear, some people just can’t help themselves. Still, the major positive is surely that now the information is out there we can make sure it won’t happen again right?

 

Hmmmmm.

 

In 2011 we’re halfway through a trial run of a journey to Mars. The global arms trade, thrust into the spotlight thanks to current events in you know where, is reportedly worth $1,000 billion according to Peter Lavelle’s Cross Talk programme and our technological advances in all manner of industries are nothing short of astonishing. And yet, some sources say the gap between the haves and the have-nots is widening. That can’t be right can it? I mean, with all the tools at our disposal why on earth would life be getting harder for some people? With all that knowledge and technology why would anyone have to retire later? Surely all that stuff is supposed to make our lives easier? It just doesn’t make sense.

 

Given that the way things are is entirely down to human behaviour, we could change things if they clearly weren’t working right? I mean, why wouldn’t we? It’s not as if we’re too stupid to join the dots and see the bigger picture is it?

 

Is it?
