I was having one of those days down at the wharf in San francisco. one of those days where no one really gave a shit what i was doing or why or how.

Now, sometimes, i can give my self a really amazing pity party, replete with cake and little hats, but sometimes....sometimes i just feel like playing for me. i try to come up with stuff that makes me feel good, especially considering that i had no preconcept of this "blip" before i played it. this song made my day that day.
