+++ The Wolves Are Alright +++

I heard a voice in the wind
Calling out to let you in
Where do we begin?


The Wolves are alright
I miss them tonight
The Wolves are alright
They barely even bite
They barely even bite


Years in the ocean, nothing to show
The sky is all grey, won't let me go
Spell on my lip, is all that I know


The Wolves are alright
I miss them tonight
The Wolves are alright
They barely even bite
They barely even bite


I hear a voice
Howling your name
It barely even bites

My resolution this year was to make a folk album, it's been slow going but I decided it's finally time to get some of it recorded. After many bad takes where I literally botched the first chord finally had one I was decently happy with. Red light syndrome is real, oof 😂

Pretty and good sound, I'm sure you will have all the songs of your album sooner than later, the song transmits sad feelings to me, is very powerful. I would have liked to know a little more about the history of the song, how was it born? :)

Writing lyrics has always been the most difficult part for me, I have a little notebook where I jot down phrases that come to mind and try to use that as inspiration when I am putting something together. I guess the feeling of this one is that maybe the bad things aren't so bad after all. The more I sing it I see alternate personal meanings but I would rather leave that open to interpretation :)

I love the overall sound and feel of this, Julia.

Btw, I don't remember having heard you sing. Love the tone of your voice.
:^)

Does your house have a great acoustic or is it the mic? Or perhaps both? Sounds great!

Ty, not sure about the acoustics in here, I recorded this on my phone in one go but added some processing to make it sound less "phone quality" . Little bit of reverb and messing around with the equalizer makes a big difference!

Holy Smokes Julia!

706 upvotes and only $18.59 accumulated so far?

I wonder why you didn't upload your music video on 3Speak as to have at least tripled your rewards? ¿eh lady? Sheesh! I've certainly seen some people who upload crappy videos on 3Speak obtaining more than $50 with the tenth part of the amount of upvotes that you have obtained with this video.

And by the way, I never would have imagined that you are a left-handed wolf. Hahahaha

Yeah! if you ask me, I enjoyed your song! :)

PS. Ah! Phew! at least the good pal appreciator came to the rescue a few minutes after I opened my big mouth. LoL

Ah! I see. These smartphones always making these little tricks with the camera to confuse us every time we are trying to guess the real dexterity and true psychological identity of our artists in the blockchain. Hahahaha

I had some trouble uploading to 3speak once and haven't tried again maybe I should give it another shot sometime 👍

Oh yeah, try again. I have no doubt that if you succeed uploading them, your music videos on 3Speak will have rewards well over $100 if, as same as this one, trafalgar, ranchorelaxo, haejin and appreciator suddenly appears as well.

It's definitely a process, I have so many little bits but putting them all together coherently is challenging. Did you get strings for your guitar yet?

It's always a process. I know what you mean about little bits (cries at the thought of all the ones scattered about here, lol). I did get strings, got them on, busted the brand new low E string when tuning (never did that before in my life), so that was interesting watching it curl, lol. I put another one on and it was fine. Maybe it had a defect, I'm not sure.

Long nails don't work so well with playing. I forgot, so had to stop and chop short four claws. 🤪

I had an extra string, so it was okay. I'll have to practice a heck of a lot more to do a recording, although I do have a cam now, so I better get the fingers going. 🤪

Watch out for the human traffickers at hivefest. You wont know it until its too late. STAY AWAY! Beware, traffickers can be women or men! They will act nice until they dont. There is human trafficking going on around this type of crypto. I have witnessed it. They literally have attempted my murder and are trying to kill me with V2K and RNM. Five years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://ecency.com/fyrstikken/@fairandbalanced/i-am-the-only-motherfucker-on-the-internet-pointing-to-a-direct-source-for-voice-to-skull-electronic-terrorism ..... https://ecency.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem if you run into one of them you may want to immediately shoot them in the face. 187, annihilate, asphyxiate, assassinate, behead, bleed, bludgeon, boil, bomb, bone, burn, bury, butcher, cap, casket, choke, chop, club, crucify, crush, curb, decapitate, decimate, deflesh, demolish, destroy, devein, disembowel, dismember, drown, electrocute, eliminate, end, euthanize, eviscerate, execute, explode, exterminate, extinguish, finish, fry, grind, guillotine, gut, hack, hang, hit, ice, implode, incinerate, kill, liquidate, lynch, massacre, maul, microwave, mutilate, neutralize, obliterate, off, pop, poison, punnish, quarter, ruin, shank, shock, shoot, shred, skin, slay, slaughter, smoke, smother, snipe, snuff, squish, stab, strangle, stone, suffocate, suicide, SWAT, swing, terminate, torture, terrorize, whack, waste, wreck.
