    This has gone totally off topic....but "The Piano has been drinking" has always been one of my favorites....
    ...actually, that whole album is great (small change).

    That's okay, we can discuss Tom Waits in my thread anytime.

    Have you all heard, "Orphans - Brawlers, Bawlers, & Bastards"? It came out last year and I LOVE it.

    Yeah - The opening is amazing! The combination of Waits's song and those drive by shots of New Orleans definitely stays on your retina!

    So is the Tom Waits inspiration just a really heavy baseline over the course of the piece or has the raspy bourbon voice designed the writing?

    Some of the images were nice. Reminded me a bit of the underrated "Wolf Girl". The dialog needs some work though.

    The plot is also a tad predictable. While I was glad at the lack of twist... it just all slid together too logically, too formulaic for me. With a script at these levels of demands, it seems like it could have done much, much more.

    But, as I said, nice images.

    I think music just helps sets the mood when I am writing. It helps me get in touch with the emotions to which I am trying to connect.

    It does need some work at the end I think. It's too abrupt. But there is some truly exceptional stuff here. I could very clearly see it in my mind as I read it. Great job!

    Spoken right out of my mind. When I write I always play music, it tends to help me orchestrate the entire scene much better then in silence.
