silly

this is why i'm not a real lyricist

So, for the past week I've been writing song fragments for siegeofangels to use in her no-really-not-bandom NaNo story. Mostly just a line or two (or three or four). But last night, as I was about to turn off my computer, this thing leapt into my head, and I can offer no excuses because I haven't even had pie in months. (August, for my birthday, homemade blueberry. Deeelicious.)


all names, genders, and instruments are fictitious because i don't know what the real ones are/will be

[the song begins with Xy on the drums, just having a bit of fun making funky percussive sounds. eventually, Yvane hits a low note while Zack does an arpeggio intro and launches into]

OOOOOOOOoooooooohhhhhh / i love pie (i love pie, i love pie) / dum dum de dum dum / I LOVE PIE // pie in the morning, pie at night / pie with the lights out (take another bite!) / pie when i'm sleeping, pie when i'm not / pie when it's cold out, pie when it's hot / pie with ice cream, pie with some gold / pie's good with jello, but not with mold // ooooooooOOOOOOOOoooohHHH / i love pie (i love pie, i love pie) / dum dum de dum dum / I LOVE PIE // [etc.]

[this song is a great favorite for shows, because the chorus is awfully fun to sing along with, and Zack can be counted on to improvise the lyrics, with them becoming more and more ridiculous and nonsensical until Yvane gets tired of doing the bass line and ends the thing by covering Zack's mouth with her hand.]
There's a song in the movie Michael about pie.

Just thought you might want to know that. The lyrics are kinda (?) similar.
That's FABULOUS. You should be a lyricist!!! And now, for an illustration of why Trish is not a real band-namer: Xy, Yvane, and Zack are, in my wee brain, named "The Omega Export." (And one of them has one emerald-green eyebrow.) ^^
No, no--The Omega Export is perfect. I'm sure there's some ridiculous story (or one that's become ridiculous in the telling) of how they wound up with the name.

(Xy dyed one eyebrow green as an experiment--at least that's what he always says when asked, although he never elaborates on what exactly the experiment was/is--and has left it like that for two and a half years now, although which eyebrow is green changes sometimes; his parents are grateful that he didn't do the usually body-piercings and so don't complain. Zack tells him at least once a week that it looks stupid.)
^___^ Reminder to self: make random addendums (addendi? addends?) to Brat's imaginings whenever possible. It makes her respond with more! Yays!!
Oh yes--give me a sentence and you're pretty much guaranteed to get at a hefty paragraph (or two or three or four) from me in return.


(plural of addendum is addenda--according to my internet sources, anyway.)
Ah, "addenda"! Didn't think of that one--thanks! ^^ My browser (Google Chrome) highlights misspellings automatically, but it doesn't suggest fixes, so if I don't get it right after a couple of tries, I give up. ;P With uncommon words, anyway--I'd be mortified if I couldn't figure out how to spell a word out of my own usual vocabulary!!
