actually this piano part does not sound like it was played by dryads having a tea party. It's not out of the realm of possiBLT.

I'm actually sort of bummed out. That could well have served as part of lyrics to the sprightly chorus of a rousing Theme Song. :o

I hope I can come up with something for this. I finally joined the 1980s and got a graphic EQ pedal, and I wanna use it.

After a prolonged absence (except that recent Guiterrorists fiasco) I think I got my mojo back. This title inspired me* to write a song, which I've now done, and I think it's okay, so I'll try to record it and submit it! Yay!

*The reason it inspired me to write a song is because I find the phrase so abhorrent and wrong. It's insulting to my intelligence. No, things don't always get better, just ask anyone who's died from cancer, or gotten brutally murdered, or wrongfully convicted of a crime and sent to prison for years where they got beat up and raped. You get the picture; sometimes life just sucks, and doesn't stop sucking. To say "it always gets better" implies that you have omniscient qualities, and besides, it's a lie. Just ask the billions of people for whom it didn't get better.

...Santa - Caravan Ray here. I am sensing a little boy who is starting to not believe in magic. Fire up the sleigh, we got some work to do. We'll pick up Jesus and a six-pack on the way. Let's roll....

Of course I believe in magic. I mean, DUH? Harry Potter? They even made some movies about him!

Hmmmm..you may be right after all. Prisoner of Azkaban was by far the best movie. Things didn't get better after that (although it did come progressively more socially acceptable to perve on Hermione). Hermione got better. She grew breasts. Breasts are good. Breasts are things. Things DO get better.

But on the more philosophical side of things as to why things may or may not get better - I think there is a bloke in my street who can help. I just went to the shop to get the paper - and walking home I saw a bloke who I am pretty sure was God. He had long silver hair and a big grey beard and wore a kaftan. And running shoes. It wasn't Dumbledore, and it wasn't Gandalf. So I think it must be God. I didn't realise he had moved to Toowoomba - but, he does move in mysterious ways. Apparantly. Anyway - next time I see him, I will ask him about the whole "life sux" thing.

Mmmmmmm Hermione's breasts.

Yeah, but while Hermione's breasts did get better, they are eventually going to be saggy, and possibly have gross fried-egg nipples after she has a few kids. So when things do get better, it's almost always a fleeting, temporary thing. Followed by things getting worse.

Yeah, but how many times do you have to fall off the horse before you just say "Fuck you" and send it to the glue factory? ;)

Coffins have linings, too. Some of them are even silver coloured.
(Also, I hate how spellcheck on firefox tells me that I spelled "coloured" wrong. Also, "spellcheck", and... "firefox"!)

Just remember, our purpose here as musicians at the mighty Song Fight is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits. :P

I can disprove "It always gets better" in 3 words: Rone's 'wrestling' videos.
