This is something I'm working on at the moment, I'd appreciate any feedback:

RoboDawn

The time of dreaming is over
Time for us to wake
To open the rusted eyes
And fell the crystal tear.

Whispers in the night-sky
The robotic crackle of the dawn
The metallic smell
Of this sensory nightmare.

Is there a time that I cannot remember?
Skin and bone and pumping desire,
Replaced now with binary and steel,
In a world now ordered in shame.

The Logic is all, and freedom controlled
Free choice is but information stored
A catalogue of errors
A history beyond our time.

Nothing survived it of the flesh
Organics fleeting fast
Seen but unseen it melted away
In the light of the RoboDawn
The light of RoboDawn.

Is there a time that I cannot remember?
Skin and bone and pumping desire,
Replaced now with binary and steel,
In a world now ordered in shame.

And yet I remember
The taste of life
The failings of the flesh
So fragile yet so all-consuming…

All destroyed by the RoboDawn
Defiled by RoboDawn.

Playing someone else's song very badly is also a form of art.
This is supposed to be Bruce Dickinson's 'Tears of the Dragon'... What it actually sounds like is a completely different story.
Complete with mistakes, this is tr00 only-been-playing-for-one-year guitar

Sounds good enough, but I don't know the song at all, so... I like the guitar sound tho

Bennie: Robodawn? Fantastic name... Ok, apart from my slight pop at that phrase, its good with some nice imagery (is that meant to be fleeting or fleeing tho, in the name about organic?). In fact, so good I'd suggest you trying use some rhyme and other poetic elements, because you should be able to do it..

Would like to hear it sung tho, singing makes all the difference to lyrics.

@nl: cool. by the way, do you know that Tears of the Dragon spawned one of rahvin's best music-related jokes ever? Once he asked me if, by singing the verse the water is moving, Dickinson actually meant that he felt all tingly inside and wanted to cry every time that he saw water.

The following is a short "poem" I wrote some four years ago, after one of my friends (well, he was more a good friend of a friend of mine, I never really knew him that well) had committed suicide. I do not consider it art by any means and obviously am not at all proud of it as a poem. However, I'm pretty proud of myself in how I managed to put most of my negative feelings into those few lines - I recall how I felt much better after I had written it down. I found this among my old texts here at my parents house a few days ago and I present it here unedited and in Finnish.


Paha olo

Joskus tämä elämä on niin helvetin raskasta
kuin ikkunaton talo, jonka seinät tehty paskasta

Ovet lukossa, ei ulos pääse siitä talosta
ja jos nähdä tahtoo aavistuksen päivänvalosta

Täytyy nyrkillä reikä seinään lyödä
ja elääkseen kaikki se paska syödä

Vain itse kukin seisoo itsensä tiellä
ei kukaan muu sitä paskaa voi niellä
(Leiskan muistolle 22.1.2000)


Since then, I've put practically all my creativity into roleplaying games and work - very little of that could be presented here.

For some reason I can't open either of those when I download them...

so I'll settle for just asking whether anyone was going to comment on my one?

Only thing I've ever really been proud of are two things. Both were for a class entitled "Madness in Literature". The first was a crazy-assed presentation that involved lots of Niklas's art (hopefully he won't get mad at me for that) as well as art by a friend of mine, and lots of Dimmu on the speakers with a bit of Stewie from Family Guy thrown in. Doesn't make much sense unless you saw it. Which none of you did.

Second was the original story I wrote for the class. Unfortunately I could never show you peoples because at one point I had the entire story except the main characters name. So... I picked Stanne Don't shoot me, please. I can be very creative, but occasionally I get these blocks where I can't make up even the smallest thing. Its why I'm not a great liar.

Funny thing about that story actually. Verbatim conversation as my teacher handed it back:

Teacher - "Wow, Brendan. Honestly, I have to say this was the best representation of schizophrenia I've ever read in a story like this. I can't imagine how much time you spent researching it!"
Me - "Um... Mr. Day? I didn't do any research..."
Teacher - "..."
Me - "..."
Teacher - "... You know, how about I forget we just said anything, and continue thinking about you as normal, ok?"

Yhrmm... Thanks... I guess. The rest in Finnish:

No ne loppusoinnuthan siinä minua eniten vaivaavatkin - vaikuttaa turhan (myöhäis-)teiniangstilta. Mitä se nyt kai tavallaan olikin. Mutta kuten sanoin, lopputulosta enemmän annan arvoa itse prosessille, ja sille kuinka "paransin itseni" tuon avulla. Hyvä minä.

I don't know the second one, but the first one reminds me a lot of the train-boss in the old Mega-Drive/Genesis game Gynoug. Excellent artwork though

Last year I decided to upload some of my stuff ... http://www.freewebs.com/artworks/
It's not a lot, but the site is free and only allows a max of 50 files...
It includes some artworks, 1 drawing and several pictures (clouds, sky + Slottsskogen Göteborg)
