me & Beck

I used to make music in my cellar. Bad music (think Jonah Hill in Cyrus). Then I started writing short stories (not bad, but not particularly good). I suppose I’d still like to be a musician though, which is why my writing touches on music a lot (lyrics, club scenes etc). 

I grew up listening to Beck. He also started out making music in the basement. Look at his first 2 or 3 albums: Golden Feelings, Stereopathetic Soul Manure. Low fi, fuzzy round the edges. Noise tracks inserted here and there. Grunge and the abstract.

Then Odelay happened. Yes, Mellow Gold has Loser on it, but Odelay changed things for him. Slicker, yet still distinctively Beck. Cut and paste, highs and lows. Pop and folk. Rap and rock. The sound of the 90s.

I’d like to think that’s where I am with my writing. I wrote a book when I was 20, a tuneless debut that has its moments, has potential. It got released last year, after I finished my 2nd novel. It’s experimental, raw. Abstract.

Now for 2013, and my 2nd novel is my Odelay. Me finding my tune, my audience. My pop music, pop art, Pop Tarts. Like Animal Collective, Flaming Lips, I’m rising from the obtuse into opus territory. I’ve even used a Beck lyric in my epigraph to the manuscript.  It’s a tale for the millennials, too.

Maybe this is an apology for bad art. But I really do believe everyone starts somewhere.

Arcfinity: Announcing Arc's new competition winner Romie Stott

I’m currently reading this great short from the excellent Arc magazine, and I’m a little unnerved as I submitted a very similar story for the same competition. Mine though was told from the POV of the robot.

Ang Lee write-up on the excellent GUMSHIP

From gay cowboys and flying ninjas, to green men with anger-management issues, Ang Lee’s covered a lot in his 20 year career. After heading back east for 2007′s Lust, Caution, and losing his footing a few years later with the half-baked Taking Woodstock, the Taiwanese-born director returned to widespread acclaim with this month’s Life of Pi. Deciding to adapt the magical-realist tale of one boy and his tiger adrift at sea was a shrewd move perfectly suited to Lee’s talents, and with Oscar-buzz already overflowing, be sure to see this man’s name on next year’s list.
