I think I'm going to move this blog in a different direction, more like the Lemon's journal and my adventures in trying to release this CD.

For starters, I'm working hard on the Design elements of the CD itself. I will post jpegs soon with the final comps. I'm swamped with school and a freelancing project, but will have more time soon. I will end up pressing 1000 CDs, full color in jewel cases and shink wrapped. Then the real adventure begins! Distribution! maybe I'll have all the lemon heads sell them on the street. I for one will be selling them out the back of my car. It's my estimation that I will be able to sell these Full Lps (on CD) for $5.00. Cheap! Although in stores they will prob raise that price. Hopefully I'll have a small budget for advertising in some underground magazines. That way I can get some web site hits and possibly sell a few LPs. I'm excited that im moving towards having a finished project. When its done, I've already planned phase 2, an instrumental album featuring my production and the talents of some of the compadres.

I'm in, just no admin rights so I can't sign in on the welcome thread properly. My home computer is disintegrating in my hands anyway, so I may not have much to say until I fix this blue screen problem. Last time it acted like this it was the RAM, so now I suspect it is the mb. Yee-ha, fun for me.

Song Ideas/Concepts/Suggestions (non-song specific)
 
Site Feedback

AD: your quote from LML in the main page breaks up your graphics blocks. On my system, at least.

its cuz your screen font is set too high. there is prob i way i can force the table frames to not shift if you change your default font size. anyone have a clue?

AD: maybe widen it a little, lot's of space here @ 1280x1024.. unless you have it at some set size for low res compat.

SL: Got a full Flash site coming, check an example of it HERE

Live to Grow(feat Periph)

SL:feels good to grow...


i used to crawl
legs not stable at all
i was made from the same substance that makes us all
-but was different, even before i reached a table tall
i figured i was growing cuz dad tracked it on the wall
-but i was small and thin, and really couldn't ball
and most of the friends that i had liked to draw
-so i looked up to them and i cooked up a way to convey
my perception in ways i could spread
and this thought i could grow out my head became big
and took up most of the time its what i did during class
while other kids in class concentrated
or sat in the back and came to class faded
i was on a trip thinking the fact there’s no limits
its like i keep painting in a line and never finish
a skill that i possessed and now will invest in
living lifetimes inside of a minute and some seconds
-cuz reality hurts
and feels like the worst kind of curse that occurs
when life doesn’t seem to make sense with events that prevent
you from growing
i rip through the fabric of time that im sewn in
and dream
have some nightmares too
some got me paranoid
but i still got through school
some took me away from the dark and grey
some took me to the beach or the park to play
some times it felt like april march and may
would pass on by but in a second of a day
and all this time my body didn't change
but i found a place to grow and gave my mind free range
-and it really wouldn’t matter if you'd find me strange
i took it as a compliment you'd mentioned my name
i looked to compliment all the optimist’s game
and clapped when you clowned with a burn that I’m lame
but way deep inside what i took to the hilt
- made me work and I built, my own set of stilts
so i now look above all the pain and the guilt
as i trip on a hill and i sip mother's milk
…I live to grow
…I got a ways to go
cuz hats the way i was raised
free to spend time dreaming my days away
color on a paper then put the paper away
decades later find the paper in a tray
stare at it a second as i let the track play
and have the same exact daydream as you did that day
stare at it a second as i let the track play
and have the same exact daydream as you did that day
i find to time grow, and break the mold
it’s dreams that allow me to barter the cards that I hold
…as I free my soul
…feel what i feel and you'll never feel old
i find to time grow, and break the mold
it’s dreams that allow me to barter the cards that I hold
…as I free my soul
…and just make room to grow
 
Lemons for Lemonade

SL:lyrics based on an open source music system where artists, not corporations, profit from their works.


[you can put up your nickel, buts its still free]
lemons for lemonade
5 cents a pour
promenade my lemonade on tour -
every cent i made from my lemonade
disseminates to the core of this lemonade entrepreneur

go and pick a lemon off a tree
samuel brings about a change in the palette
acidic you get it
sour like mash
im upsetted by the lash of the critic who loves but can’t admit it
a smash with a gimmick is a mask with a hidden
face that the masses will chase to a forbidden
places where classes in hate have been given
making it hard for Samuel, to well, make a living
given, even the slightest change to prosper
and take my lemonade stand to the stage of opera
ill turn the whole world sour inside of an hour
representing these lemon heads proper, cuz i got to
lemons for your friends
lemons for family
picking at my brains is like picking off my family tree
branches, your anxious
here take a seed
the cycle will continue if you plant this
and wind up in ranches
and groves
lemons get so heavy the branches explode
but sam got a plan to unload
all this lemonade to the masses in sour avalanches as it splashes and flows
you can keep your nickel - but here’s my 2 cents
lemons for lemonade
5 cents a pour
promenade my lemonade on tour -
every cent i made from my lemonade
disseminates to the core of this lemonade entrepreneur

go and pick a lemon off a branch
nobodies gonna make you pay a cent
i got another way to pay the rent
i got a job, i teach and coach
i’m paving the road like cement to make a dent
but instead of using artificial turf
where you cant grow things and it makes your knees hurt
i flirt with the concept of fertile dirt
i plant my seeds deep and let the lemons burst
lemonade for him and her keep your nickel
im sour at times but im never salty like a pickle
so this one heres is free, its on the hizzle
itll never be soda pop cuz it don't fizzle
so put it out there that this spark twain
is a fellow bleeding yellow with lemonade in his veins
when giving out free lemons sounds quite insane
i can explain, he's got lemon marange for brains
you . keep that nickel cuz you need
cash to pay off all your
bills. this one here is all of free
this one here is all of me..

Lemon's Motivation


SL:...relaxed like a man on a catamaran when the sea settles...


Crunch the numbers
Do the math
Only way to go is put the flow to task and get the truth revealed,
Reach deep down and expose man beneath the mask…
In each deep down is the sound empty drum
Resonating with a spiritual hum
And it just so happens that my spirit is a spiritual bum
Who enjoys the spirits of rum
Anyway to,
find a way to
take a vacation to
to a lake to
get some fishing in
move with the mission of having nothing to do
I don’t get off by owning ice
I don’t chase cheese I’m with the Boney mice
Rats see cheese better heed advice
Traps snap necks, break backs, and that’s life!
but I ignore my own advice still
snoring till 4 in the morning .. yikes
then I stumbled to bed
only to wake
to this fake ass world and a boring life
so I tweak the freaks with fabrications
elaborate my inspirations
with intricate beads of perspiration placed and
Immersed in collaborations

I don’t even charge a dime
Can you relate to how much time?
And the reason why
Some will tempt to question my motivation?
Yet from the microphone to automation
Im in the studio still wasting away
Since im facing away from the my place in this rat race nation
They can’t feel my vibration
Where does he go?
Who does he do?
What was his motive?
What was the game plan?
Who was that stranger?
Did he have a name tag?
I’m not sure
but I don’t sense danger
Should we let him…
Speak his mind out?
Only one way to know you got to pay to play to find out
Maybe well give him a chance…
Too late he signed out

Sam Lemon’s tryptophan levels
Have hit new levels…
Relaxed as a man on a catamaran
When the sea settles…
We all stoned amongst
All These pebbles--
--And the rebellious fact is…
its sad but the method to the madness
Is madness…
We’re in trouble with insane luck getting
Double brain fucked with a back flip
Now Chugging along
I was lost on train of thought
When I stopped at a shop and I bought
a coffee mug with an I and a heart meaning love with a picture of a big green bud
Having daydreams,
feels like the fabric of time getting torn by the seems
as the abstract seeps in, creeping deep in…
when time goes quicker than a working man's weekend
Where does he go?
Who does he do?
What was his motive?
What was the game plan?
Who was that stranger?
Did he have a name tag?
I’m not sure
but I don’t sense danger
Should we let him…
Speak his mind out?
Only one way to know you got to pay to play to find out
Maybe well give him a chance…
Too late he signed out
