- NAME: Blood, Starlight, Rain Like Tears.
COMMENT: "Sitting in a backpackers hostel in sydney, get a call from my
parents, I can't come home, they've rented out my room. I've been here
for 5 weeks now, but only finally got a laptop this day. I was feeling
incredibly dark, having spent the last week in bed ill, I really
wanted to go home, or failing that, I wanted someone to take a few
minutes out of their day to see if I was still alive (okay, so I was
feeling kind of melodramatic, lol), This girl promised to hang out
with me, and then cancelled or forgot every time for weeks straight,
and I was stupid (read: thinking with my heart instead of my head)
and didn't want to acknowlage that she was ignoring me... I was
losing my mind, and this music represents that.
The full verse is "Blood, Starlight, Rain like tears, Drink from
this, and let go the years". I don't know who penned those words, but
I dropped the latter half from the title because I promised said girl
that I would.
This music was made on an emulator (vice 1.8, and of course I had
resid turned on :-p). It was also one of my bigger expermients with
filters synced from different channels to the one they're targetting.
If it works at all on a real c64, I'd consider myself very lucky, lol,
because I didn't have access to one at the time." (JJ)
