Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Never Be Like You (Again)

"Never Be Like You" is exploding (or I should say it was exploding two months ago...I receive song data on a two months lag), but why? I don't know. Does someone somewhere push Book of Kills songs somehow? A web site for fans of homemade music? An internet radio station that plays '90s lo-fi? I don't get it. I find it really interesting and gratifying, but very puzzling.

Next week will be tough as far as completing the single, but I'll do it. I'm out of town tomorrow, then Tuesday through Friday I'll most likely be doing babysitting at 1:00 each day. That doesn't leave much time to take care of chores and work on music, too. I get it done.

Dee Dee Ramone, the brilliant, if troubled, songwriter/bassist, for The Ramones died on this day in 2002, of a heroin overdose. Dee Dee never received the acclaim he deserved, but few do, eh?

"Because I'm quiet, people think I'm really cold, or rude, or snobby. But I'm literally scared to talk to them." -- Dee Dee Ramone
