about

I'm forcing myself to write and poorly record a song a day until I don't feel like it anymore. I'm trying to limit my time fussing over them so they'll be more spontaneous. The recordings will be bad and maybe even poorly performed, so I guess i'll put them up here as I get around to it.

only actually kept up with this for eight days but that's okay. i'll keep putting new ones up anyway.
