Is Alter-Egos Useful?

What I have learned about making music is that you have to be able to give as much of yourself as you possibly can. Seeing as how we know the world for what it is, building a character makes it easy…Continue

I have an album coming soon, if any of you are interested in supporting. :-)

I've been awkward since my teens (the worst time ever to become awkward)! And it just stayed that way, and honestly, I've no problem with it. Besides, it's always kinda fun to think back on awkward situations, and just laugh at how horribly awkward it is. It's almost like being awkward, you always have some weird, funny story to tell! I always thought it was kinda cute, anyway. If times get shitty though, it does help to think of yourself as a girl from Shojo anime, they're wonderful with their awkward-ness! It does help me. That's probably so weird, though! >./p>

If someone has a post or a discussion to post about the topic or not, feel free to post.

I wish we can just post blogs based upon this, rather than merely comments. This way, maybe I can buckle down, write a song about being awkward and post it here. I've mentioned too often ideas on what I want to write about, and come out with hardly any idea on how to start. Perfectionism, or rather distrust in your own intuition, sucks ass, doesn't it?

When I saw the name of this group and the description that followed I was like that is so me! Oh has anyone seen this list and can relate?

you know that movie "Brother From Another Planet"....WELL if my life was a movie that would be me. I feel like I was born on the wrong planet sometimes.

Awkward should be my Full Name. I have always been a standout, who walks on his toes and works out with a skip rope. I wear bright colors (Yellow, Orange, White and Khakis, my favorite), might spark a spliff and tote a 40 ounce. If the Party is in the club, Im either on the side of the club, in the parking lot or up the block getting lifted, eye balling a hot graffiti piece.

Thanks for this Group. I plan to make heavy contributions to this group of like minded souls!

I saw this group and a smile immediately spread over my face. I have always been a little socially awkward, despite the fact that I love meeting  new people. It's great to have the reassurance that I'm not the only person who's weird around others.

Well, what better place to do it in or people to do it with than amongst us? :-)
