News from the world of FAX. Never a dull moment, but lots of dull personages. Not like around here, that's certain.

News Item Numero Uno. Spinal surgery scheduled for October 28th. If all goes well, I shall soon be able to return to the golf course and continue to pursue my lifelong dream of using a long stick to accelerate a tiny white ball straight through the brainpan of an unsuspecting millionaire.

News Item Numero Dos. I think releasing Pollard was a mistake. Sure, he whiffed on open field tackles like a loony asylum refugee on an overdose of Valium, but if somebody would have taken the time to coach him up a little ... you know, take better angles and keep his head up through his tackles, I think he could have gotten better. I have a feeling that there was more to his release than meets the eye. Like, for example, Haley didn't like his attitude. Still, he's Pollard under the bridge at this point. More evidence, I suppose, that Herm has a phenomenally keen eye for talent.

News Item Numero Tres. There are millions of giant, fat people in the world. Why can't we find one who can play right tackle?

News Item Numero Fouro. This is a biggie. I received a call from my publisher a few weeks ago. According to this madman, who himself was considerably fortunate to escape the Sixties with penis intact, one of my tunes has now been selected as a featured cut on an upcoming album being recorded this fall. The artist is extremely well known. I'm not going to say who it is in fear of causing bad Juju which, as you are well aware, is bad. Plus, anything can happen between now and then ... including, unfortunately, the artist finding another song they like better. Nonetheless, it looks good and, should the unthinkable happen and they cut my tune, I will let you guys know. Needless to say, I am very psyched (sp?) about the whole deal. I just started writing again a year or so ago after convincing the beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX that we were sufficiently secure financially to allow me to spend time at it. Women can be so funny about things sometimes.

News Item Numero Fiveskies. I have declared Mr. Baby Lee the winner of the Quibble Bowl. There isn't a trophy or plaque or some kind of crown or anything due to shortages in the Quibble Bowl budget. So, if he would be so kind as to weave a kind of wreath thing out of some shrubberies and wear it around for a week or so, that would be great.

Hope you all are doing well. I have a feeling that Haley is turning our team into a fighting force of fearsome and direful intentions. So long as the o-line doesn't pee down their legs on third and long, that is, we should see improvement. I'm very surprised that Hali is performing as well as he is at OLB. Very surprised. Vrable is worth his weight in gold. Hell, he was probably worth the 2nd all by himself.

Anyhow, take care guys. If I don't see you in the future, I'll see you in the pasture.

It's really amazing how well Mr. CrazyHorse is coming along, though. He's one tough customer and medical science is worthy of our awe. Not a day has gone by when I haven't thought of him. He's a stronger man than I.

I would, Mr. SportsRacer. Honestly, I would.

Problem is, no good could come from it. First off, it's always bad luck to talk too much about a pending deal. Always. Second off, if it doesn't happen (which is possible since they don't start the session for about six weeks and they could change their minds at any point), I'll look stupider than I already do. I'm stoked, though. I just started writing again (seriously) and a cut would be good to have - even if it was just album filler.

Good to see you, Mr. scott free. You're one of the good ones, man.

Yeah, when we were engaged, the private-schooled, beautiful and witty Mrs. FAX said (and I quote), "I'll marry you, but I won't marry a musician." Keep in mind that, around these parts, the term "musician" is synonymous with the term "waiter". Can't say that I blame her and God knows I would have given up a lot more to exchange vows with her ... she's kind of a babe and I've always been a sucker for babes.

Nevertheless, things have changed allowing me to dedicate more time to it. So, in the end, I won.

This board hasn't been nearly as amusing without you.


What kind of music do you write?

All kinds, really, Mr. KcChiefsKing. Other than classical. I've written jazz, pop, rock, fusion stuff, hard/power rock, straight country. It all depends on my mood, really. Therefore, (as a Chiefs fan) most of my stuff is either very angry or depressing. The funny thing is that the piece they selected was my absolute least favorite on the demo. It's kind of a 70s throwback piece. Sort of a quasi mutation of folk/country with an early Beatlesesque chorus melody and chord change. Very strange that they chose this one. My reckoning is that they have a particular arrangement in mind that will make it work for them. That's just a guess, though. I haven't been invited to the session, so I don't know.

In the publishing world, songs are shopped (pitched) to various artists and producers and, depending on who's recording and what mood they're in, the artist or his representatives either connect to a tune or they don't. It's very strange. If the immediate visceral response isn't there, you're sunk. Otherwise, it's a "maybe". And always ... always, you have to have a good hook. This particular hook is "When I See You". In this case, it's a love song ostensibly sung by a guy on duty in Iraq to the babe waiting for him back home. So maybe they liked it because of that ... the popular/current cultural angle.

I was rear-ended by a bitch several years ago. In a car, guys. In a car.

I was driving a 300z waiting for traffic to clear so I could make a left turn into a parking lot. This crazy loony wacky trailer trash bitch from hell's bathroom never saw me - at least that's what she told the police. I went from 0 to 50 in 0 seconds. She hit me so hard that the bolts holding the driver's seat to the floor were sheered off and I woke up looking skyward through the hatch window. Like an idiot, I pretended I was John Wayne and chose to forgo a visit to the ER. Later, I was diagnosed with a broken back and the L5 vertebrae had shifted way out of position. They call it "Spondylolisthesis". It's gotten progressively worse and now I have to have surgery to insert some pins and stuff to provide stability for the spine. Ideally, that will solve the problem so I can get off the pain meds. Which, by the way, I am completely sick of.

See, I think Pollard could have been salvaged, Mr. kregger. If you watch the replay, he drops his head before the tackle (doesn't keep his eyes on his target) and, obviously, takes poor angles. I think those things are coachable. I mean, he was there - he just whiffed a lot.

Best of luck with the back surgery and also with the tune, Mr FAX. Last time I heard a guy say, "that wasn't the best song I pitched", I was playing a Polygram post-CMA party down at Diamond in The Rough(no longer there) on lower Broad, and had the chance to chat with the with the gentleman that wrote "Achy Breaky Heart", which won Song of the Year. With a dazed look on his face, he said, "God! That wasn't even close to the best song of mine that was pitched."

I tend to believe that he was from the Greg Wesley school of "how to get on Sportscenter once a year". He was more interested in the bonecrusher hit and neglected the pure tackle. He did seem to be getting it in the first two games, but the Seattle game sealed his fate.

Yeah, you're probably right, Mr. kregger. It's a shame, though. We've wasted far too many draft picks over the years. We've sucked at player development for so long that I was hopeful Haley and Pioli would or could change that ... you know, take a kid and help him develop his potential. In Pollard's case, I guess it wasn't going to happen.

Anyhow, I have to run. I miss you guys. I've said it before, but you're the most intelligent, witty, knowledgeable bunch of Chiefs fans on the web. No question. No debate.

I'll see you in a month or so. In the meantime, screw the friggin' Ravens. When you boil it all down, they're just a pack of overrated, egotistical, whiny, back-shooting, ex-Browns. Just watch Haley pull out some surprises for those bastards and walk away with a win. Harbaugh won't know what hit him.

That's quite reasonable. Would this be the first song you've written that someone recorded or have you had others?

I'm tempted to make another guess, but I don't want to risk any bad juju

Then I will.

It's The Fugs, isn't it? I heard they were going back into the studio.



Ahhh...Two great chords, five great albums!


...or was that the MC5?




And much luck with your surgery and chemical whatnot...

Your Nemesis wishes you well on your surgery, and mojo on your publishing.

Good luck with the surgery man! My bro-in-law just had his lower back done (disc issues) and told me he feels like he's a 20 year old kid again.

Hope all goes well with the music biz. Our family is also being very impacted by similar things right now. It is a very exciting time!

Take care!

All kinds, really, Mr. KcChiefsKing. Other than classical. I've written jazz, pop, rock, fusion stuff, hard/power rock, straight country. It all depends on my mood, really. Therefore, (as a Chiefs fan) most of my stuff is either very angry or depressing. The funny thing is that the piece they selected was my absolute least favorite on the demo. It's kind of a 70s throwback piece. Sort of a quasi mutation of folk/country with an early Beatlesesque chorus melody and chord change. Very strange that they chose this one. My reckoning is that they have a particular arrangement in mind that will make it work for them. That's just a guess, though. I haven't been invited to the session, so I don't know.

In the publishing world, songs are shopped (pitched) to various artists and producers and, depending on who's recording and what mood they're in, the artist or his representatives either connect to a tune or they don't. It's very strange. If the immediate visceral response isn't there, you're sunk. Otherwise, it's a "maybe". And always ... always, you have to have a good hook. This particular hook is "When I See You". In this case, it's a love song ostensibly sung by a guy on duty in Iraq to the babe waiting for him back home. So maybe they liked it because of that ... the popular/current cultural angle.

FAX

I have a suggestion. Assuming that this artist records your song and that after the album comes out you're willing to tell us which song it is, I think you should pick 2 or 3 albums that are released at about the same time (including the one with your song on it) and post a poll asking the Planet to guess which song is yours. It would be an experiment to see how well people can pick out your writing based only on your Chiefsplanet posting history.

Edit: Nevermind. I just read the last paragraph and realize that this probably won't work (unless you can find multiple songs with the "When I See You" that is "sung by a guy on duty in Iraq to the babe waiting for him back home" in them).

FAX, good luck with the spinal surgery, or maybe I should be wishing the surgeon good luck, so, good luck to both of you. I hope you realize, good spine or bad, that little white ball doesn't care. It isn't gonna go straight. Cant wait to hear about that tune. Take care.
