Yes I'm Awake

I live in Los Angeles and my daily frustations come from our horrible mass transit system. I tend to be politically incorrect but I prefer being "rude" to being naive.

I'm currently geeking out over the original Star Wars trilogy (Mark, Carrie and Harrison).

As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.

One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”

I took no pride in my solitude; but I was dependent on it. The darkness of the room was like sunlight to me.

"I remember exactly what he said as I pushed the shutter on the camera. It was an incredibly hot afternoon on the second day of Bonnaroo. He looked up at the sky and said, "I’m searching for a cloud up there somewhere."" - Shantel Mitchell
