Hey guys,

when you're in the middle of a hard set in practice or a tough swim in competition just keep reminding yourself
"I ain't gonna stop" no matter how bad it burns.

and the rock demo of my latest song "Ain't Gonna Stop" just came in

please have a listen and let me know what you think of it.

rock on,

Ande

to hear it drop by:

Doesn't music interfer with your concentration. I can't stand to hear music when I'm swimming. It interurpts with the natural rythm I hear fromthe water and air. Yesterday, I was pulling breast. I heard "We want chocclate, too,yeah" as a mixture of allof the sounds. i must admit that I have no hearing in my right ear and I'm not psychotic.

hi jim,

thanks for having a listen and writing your comment.

we actually wrote this one between Oct and Nov of 2004
then my cowriter gave me a cassette of his rough recording,
then in May 2004, a friend of mine made an MP3 from the cassette. then I made arrangements to get Mez to make the demo and Mez made it.

Lately I haven't been finishing as many songs
but I have tons of ideas I'd like to write and I still find a few new ones. here's a few of my latest:

1) at a recent press conference Texas' governor rick perry (who sometimes swims where I do) thought the interview was over and the mike was off when he said, "Adios MOFO"
(i kid you not, go to google news and you'll find several articles)
he later apologized for it, but still I started a song about it and placed the idea with one of my cowriters,

2) i'm considering writing a song about
trimethylxanthine
(does any one know what trimethylxanthine is?)

3) I wrote another lyric called "No Mystery Left" which encourages women to remain mysterious, and

4) I've considered writing another one about

a bottle of jack
a cigarrette pack
a lighter and ten dimes.

which are some of the items that are buried with frank sinatra.

so if YOU ever stumble upon what you think might be a great song idea, if I like it I make take a stab at writing a first draft and begin the song creation process.

Ande

if it's music I like, i don't mind

I usually can't hear the music until I stop on the wall sometimes there's a radio playing, especially at meets they pipe it through the speakers,

There's plenty of examples of music playing at athletic events.

Well, Everything is "relative" according to Einstein....So the "middle" adjective can be interpreted in many ways I suppose....afterall....he is an ex UT swimmer now.....LOL!! (j/k of course!!).....Do you like musically inclined guys Keather?....Does playing guitar meet the criteria of "musically inclined" as well?

No but I know what Dimethyltriptamine is (also called DMT).....I heard about it once from a friend actually...cough cough.....anyway, I can definitely see a song written about DMT though....it would be a very "psychedelic" song to say the least!!...(from what I was told I mean).

Musically inclined can be hot ... guys that can play the guitar and sing is way hot ... I can't sing a darn note so I'm easily impressed ... I don't go for the starving artist type, I like my athletic boys ...

Jim,

actually I don't sing, play the guitar or piano,

what I do is
+ find great song ideas,
+ start or complete the lyrics,
+ invite talented people to collaborate on particular songs with me,
+ get decent demos made, then
+ work to place the songs with artists.


The compound for trimethylxanthine is C8H10N4O2.

aka

Caffeine

I've heard that at UT you have to pass a hottness test before they let you on the team ... if you aren't hot enough you can be a math major there though ;)

Well luckily I went to grad school at the real UT b/c it looks like they would have rejected me at the other UT for being waaaay too hot!

I wish I had seen this before the set I did this morning, it sure would have helped.

We had 2 coaches (Simon Percy and Chris Aikman) on deck this morning, and when they do they usually give us 3 choices. I thought it odd that Simon called distance "Ultra Distance," yet I still moved over to do it...

Main set was 4x800:
1st: neg split
2nd: broken @ 200 for :10
3rd: broken @100 for :05
a brief easy...did 100
4th: straight 800 for time

I was pretty wiped out by the time I finished!!!

Strange the things you think about in the middle of a long set...the one for time I kept breaking down fractionally how much I had finished....maybe I should have been a math major :)

Oh yaeh....where did you resend it too?....Har Har...seriously though...resentment can really interrupt the cosmic flow of good energy that passes through us.....you should really try and tap into some positive energy flow and let go of all that resentment and other emotional baggage man!...It's like majorly unhealthy and stuff.

Of course you do honey......I did refer to the illness as a "delusional" disease now didn't I?....It's not your fault though.....not anymore your fault than say blaming someone like Liz Taylor for believing that Micheal jackson is just an innocent victim.....I won't hold it against you now.....I'll still let you tell people were friends and all.

First of all.....What do you mean "not on the UT swimmer level"?......Now I can't be held accountable for the times I've posted thus far......I had to lose 90 pounds last year......I get a clean slate I tell you!!.....I will make them all pay I will!!....Yes my precious they will all pay for their blasphemous lies!!....sorry I got a little carried away for a moment.....

And about the Geek thing:.....I'm glad "someone" always pulls for the geek every once in a while....It's nice to know that sympathy and pity have a way of reaching the hearts of a few good souls out there!

p.s. Sorry Ande...Have we hijacked your thread about music?.....It's time to go back to focusing on Songs and stuff....If we stray from the topic of swimming related stuff too long we may get poor Ande's little thread closed!!

that's a tough set
sometimes it's tough to keep count on long sets
i tend to count by 100's or 200's

did they give you the whole set at once or one at a time
where you didn't know what was next

Ande-- RE: Friday's set

The coach gave it to us all at once, since the distance had moved to the other pool, making more room for the others where we all were...started out with 5-6 people per lane.

Yes, it was tough to keep track. There was just 1 other guy in the lane with me, we split it, and ended up going within a few seconds for each 800. I also was able to keep an eye on the lane next to ours (faster) and figure how much faster they were to know where we were.

I think there's good and bad to knowing what's next....some coaches use a board, other's don't. For this set it helped hold me back a bit so I could go all out for the last 800, for time.
