That's All I Can Say

Description
Remember your first apartment? I remember mine.



Tech question- I use a Mac-Mini and I'm having problems with the audio jack at the back of the computer. When I plug in the speakers or headphones the balance is right, but if I adjust the volume the left speaker becomes 150% and the right 50% volume. So the only solution is to unplug it and plug it back in, which can be a pain in the ass.

The problem must be with the audio jack because the same thing occurs with any device I use, 2 sets of headphones and speakers.

Any ideas?

Oh, and enjoy the song!

Lyrics
That’s All I Can Say

I live in an old shoebox
With Typhoid fever and the chicken pox
Living under an old stairway
I’ve been here for a thousand days

With the spiders under my rug
Sleeping quiet with the dead bed bugs
I wanna’ leave, I cannot stay
I’m gonna’ go and be on my way

That’s all I can say
That’s all I can say

I’m gonna’ move to the ocean beach
And buy a house and all sorts of things
And have a garden and a swimming pool
An air conditioner to keep me cool

So you know about my only dream
And all those subjects and all those themes
Like history and mathematics
And algebra and all the rest

That’s all I can say
That’s all I can say

'That’s all I can say' Yeah
Real cool my man,you can tell you were really having fun here. You really sound a bit like Hendrix vocally and I am taken back to 'Woodstock' with this piece.

Fun tune musically but I think the lyrics are a little weak in the 4th verse: the jump from your dream house to school subjects is a bit of a stretch. My 2 cents.

Whatever
I'm all about non sequiturs, stream of consciousness, and simply playing with words. That's my style. At least on three quarters of my tunes.

I don't like when words sound forced. I wrote what I wrote because that's what I thought I was thinking. So there.

You have to love the 4th verse. Love it, I tell you!

Thanks for the advice anyway.

Can it be any better than this I dont think so, your really expanding the attitude in your singing, the drum tone and the mix really lend itself to that subtle but in your face sound Thanks Dave for another download!

Love it
Having lived in unhygienic circumstances back in student days, I can relate. I was pretty oblivious to it most of the time until I saw raccoons poking around the front entrance.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the vocals and the chord progression. there is a certain kozmik funkiness to it which makes it not too hard to imagine Tvricky's evocation of Hendrix.

Enjoyed!

pretty catchy this one. really easy to stick with you. i see you go about lyrics nearly identical as me. most of mine come in one 10-15 minute session-- if that--with no idea ahead of time.

Heh!
You described almost every apartment I lived in during college. I used to take pictures of the slugs on the walls in one apartment. Very cool tune.

As for your technical problem. I seem to remember having a similar problem with an audio jack on an eMac I used to use. The jack was apparently bad and I never knew what kind of sound I was going to get. I eventually got a USB interface and plugged the headphones and speakers into it and it solved the problem.

That's all
Love the retro head space vibe and the hot guitar solo. This hangs together well - cool VOX treatment to set the overall feel of the song. Quick start getting right into the tune and short end suit the title too (and I like that artwork!)

Cheers,
Doug

Tech: Could be the audio driver is messed up instead of the jack since it works part of the time.
