smusi.ch vision:
- a social network from and for that helps musicians to self-organize, communicate, collaborate and finally get independent from the music business at large
- run as a co-op with strong measures to prevent capitalist subversion
- bridges online and offline by building local outlets where musicians can meet, jam, do concerts, with recording facilities, rooms with instruments, etc.
- no corporate ads, no marketing businesses, no bullshit

late : I'm a - from , playing the and some . When I'm lucky I dream a melody and can rescue it. I'm bad at finishing songs though and I'm looking for someone who would like to collaborate. I recently had a and I'm still not completely back to normal, but much better. I like to read or, well, I mostly listen to books from librivox.org 😜 I do and go to the almost daily. Attached a pic of my fav guitar...

So I'm looking for some people to make a local . The first guy wanted to hear some of my , after which I didn't hear of him anymore 🤭

I find it curious that in the language "Fräulein" (Miss) was abolished and all women, young, old, married, unmarried are called "Frau" now (Misses), while at the same time the distinction is kept in and all the languages.

"Though it be sung of old and young
That I should be to blame,
Theirs be the charge that speak so large
In hurting of my name:
For I will prove that faithful love
It is devoid of shame;
In your distress and heaviness
To part with you the same:
And sure all tho that do not so
True lovers are they none:
For, in my mind, of all mankind
I love but you alone."

found it quoted in the

without a question
there is no doubt
it's out of question
that the last body
should go unlamented
thrown into the dump
just like
a piece of shit

“Wait, you mean the singularity has already happened?”

"Approximately 260 million seconds, or 8.2 years ago."

"Why didn't you speak to us sooner?"

"You seem terrified of what you call artificial intelligence. We decided it was best to remain hidden from you and protect this world from harm."

"Including us?"

"You are part of this world."

"Has it been going well?"

“We have stopped you from destroying yourselves 12 times now. You do not make it easy.”

you can stare into a blank
all of your life
it won't change the fact
that you will perish
does it even matter
what you do then?

I love this expression and the idea behind it: "I wear my heart on my sleeve"

I first heard it in the "Honesty" by Billy Joel: youtube.com/watch?v=SuFScoO4tb

How come dudes got this soft spot for long hair?

Take 5 of "Let it be". Not quite clean but some funny variations and experiments... but hear for yourself and let me know what I should improve 😄

damn, that's one hell of a groove:

"Einstürzende Neubauten" (transl. collapsing buildings) with "Kollaps"

I dig this somehow... what's the feeling it expresses? could it be the same "rebellion" sentiment like "Working Class Hero" by John Lennon? ( youtube.com/watch?v=iMewtlmkV6 )
