I'm so tired. Do I really deserve better than this?

2020.06.19 14:00 BatPumpkin I'm so tired. Do I really deserve better than this?

CWs: verbal abuse (?), depression, ableism; mentions of pedophilia, suicidal ideation
I feel like I'm the only one in my household who's self-aware, and it's exhausting.
My mom gets to yell at the cats and put me down whenever she needs to let it out. But when I express my negative emotions, I'm too sensitive, I need to get over it, etc.
I feel like my parents don't care about whether I'm heard or not: they just want me to shut up. The only thing they like from me is when I'm happy or goofy. Sometimes it goes as far as trying to guilt me into not having feelings. When struggling with my grandma's death (still am), my mom said, "You have to let it go or else she won't be able to rest in peace!"
I am trying so, so hard to give my parents the benefit of the doubt. I want to give them room to grow. I do my best not to treat them the way they've treated me, because I feel like it'll only perpetuate the cycle. But I feel like I don't receive this same courtesy. Moreover, I feel like I don't *deserve* the same courtesy.
Damned if I do, damned if I don't. I feel like I have to make myself seem immaculate like the people I looked up to - like my grandma, or my manager at work who never lashed out at people. But even if I maintain that illusion, I feel guilty for being "fake."
I've just wanted to be loved and supported - not unconditionally, but in a way where the other party and I are able to speak honestly about our feelings, hear each other out, and work it out. I'm upset because I don't understand why it can't be this way with my parents.
To quote a screenshot I saw from Bojack Horseman, I feel like "they're only proud of me on their terms." It hurts because I'm so used to being proud of myself for accomplishing a small thing, only to get shot down because it's "not enough."
I feel like self-awareness and change only mattered to them when lupus put me in the hospital, and they feared I wouldn't come back the same way. I was really hoping that the incident with my lupus changed them for the better, but it didn't last.
A lot of times, I just curl up to my pillow and imagine Nikki Sixx (my first official celeb crush) is there, hugging me tight and validating my feelings. Being affectionate and playful with me without worrying about me being "too sensitive" because he understands boundaries. (One parent kept being inappropriate with me, and another wasn't affectionate at all because they feared being accused of being a child molester.) Being empathetic to my depression because he's been in my shoes, and worse.
Yeah, maybe the stuff my crush posts on social media is smoke and mirrors. His family definitely isn't perfect. But he actually cares. He wants to break the cycle of what he went through as a kid. He's doing his best to give his kids better than what he had. And that's all I've ever wanted: to be loved, supported, and listened to. Someone who won't get mad at me when I'm sad. And I can't help but wonder: what do I have to do to deserve to be loved like that?
I dated an online predator for three years; he was in his 30s, and I was around 12 - 15. I stuck with him because I thought no one else would want me. I thought it was the only way to get the love I wanted. That, among other things I've gone through, is part of how I forced myself to grow up too fast in hopes that I'd finally be worth loving. Now I'm 23, and I mourn the loss of my childhood. I'm trying to do my best with what I have now, though.
The person I'm closest to now, S...Dad likes to do whatever to put him down. He makes fun of S because he's blind in one eye and can't drive because of his seizures. He thinks his gifts aren't extravagant enough (he buys my Mom brand name stuff). Dad always finds something negative to say about him, when the truth is, S has helped me more than either of them ever have. Hell, S was the one who helped me learn how to drive on the freeway. Despite being unable to drive, he had enough experience being in the passenger seat that he was able to explain things, be patient, and help me stay calm. Now I don't fear the freeway at all.
I haven't been able to visit S because of COVID-19 stuff. But the other week, he did visit to drop off a present for me, and I got to hug him. He's understanding that I have to be careful about leaving the house because of my compromised immune system.
So, what am I hoping to accomplish from sharing all this? Just some reassurance, validation, and comfort. I feel like there's something inherently wrong with me - that God made a mistake, and that since I'm too scared to off myself, maybe the lupus is the way of having my body self-destruct. I want to be reassured that it's okay for me to work towards something better, and that I do deserve better than what I have now.

2020.02.15 22:47 cabbage_patch_dick I have been struggling with poly-substance abuse for over 10 years now.

I am finally writing this down after years of confusion, frustration and isolation. This post is meant to be something permanent that I can look back on when I feel weak and need a reminder of why I NEED to change.
I'm 27 years old, almost 28. I've been habitually using drugs since I was 16 years old. Mainly opiates, alcohol, cannabis, nicotine, and benzodiazepines.
I'm lucky enough (I don't know if lucky is the right word), to have never really have had to actually spend much money on these things, aside from the booze, weed, and cigarettes/vape stuff. It's always been just given to me from friends/family that had extra meds that they didn't want/need.
Like a lot of people on this sub, I was staunchly against any type of drug usage, until one day I just wasn't anymore. I was raised in a family where drug use was looked down on, even though I have a parent who consumed/s ungodly amounts of prescribed opiates, benzos, and amphetamines. I always knew that this parent had to take medications that would make them act odd, or tired. I just assumed this person was sick and not high as balls damn near all the time.
My story starts when I was 16 and finally coming out of my shell (I have always been very reserved and have struggled with anxiety and depression). I remember that I was finally starting to make friends and put myself out there, but not a month later, my parents announced that we would be moving across the country. At this point I was still anti-drug, I think I had a total of 10 beers in my life at this point.
When we moved it was very difficult for me to adjust, like I said before, I was always shy/standoffish, so making friends wasn't the easiest thing for me. I was so incredibly lonely at this time, and like a lot of people, I really connected with music I was listening to at the time. People like Nikki Sixx, Keith Richards, and Ozzy Osbourne were my absolute heroes. I read all their biographies and wanted to be exactly like them. For some reason I thought that the key to talent and likability was through drugs. This is precisely where I trace my drug usage to; I just wanted to be happy and loved, and thought drug usage would unlock some sort of untapped creativity in my brain. At first I was just alright with alcohol and cigarettes, then weed came along, AND THEN I discovered 10mg norcos.
I fell in love immediately. When I was high on those things I couldn't feel lonely, I couldn't feel sad, I could only feel happy and confident, no matter how alone I actually was. At this time I actually preferred weed, I just didn't have the means to get any since I knew no one. I just kept popping my free 10mg norcos like candy.
Fast forward a couple of years and I had graduated to 8mg dilaudids. Only sniffing, surprisingly I've never used a needle. Also by this point I had a couple of weed connections and was smoking a pack a day of Marlboro Reds at 17-18 years old, not that uncommon. Still bad though.
I dropped out of high school at this point, for reasons that I'm still not 100% sure of. I think anxiety and the fact that I didn't really fit in with anyone in this state we moved to. I just wanted to be alone and do my drugs, because when I had my drugs, nothing mattered, except what was going on directly in front of me at that exact moment in time. That little feature of drugs doesn't last forever.
Soon enough I was kicked out of my parents home for drug usage, even though one of them was using WAY more than I was. This is when I moved into a shitty apartment complex, ended up getting arrested for weed and began my love affair with alcohol. I was on probation, so I couldn't smoke and my dumb ass thought drinking a 12-pack every night was a good idea. I somehow I only ever pissed dirty for opiates. I had an old bottle of norcos that got me out of that one.
Even after I got off probation, I continued to drink. I mean, at that point, I was addicted. I drank excessively every night for nearly 6 years, still taking opiates as well.
I eventually tapered off the drinking to very occasionally, because I started to date a girl who didn't drink and that was honestly the only thing I couldn't hide. I used benzos a lot for a couple months and quit those as well, because they fucked up my dick. The withdrawal from a 2 month benzo binge lasted about the same amount of time as I was taking them. And FUCK did it suck. I felt like I was going insane.
Right now I'm detoxing from the opiates using kratom. I'm so fucking done with this shit. It's been nothing but an endless cycle of doing drugs and doing absolutely nothing. If you can even call that a cycle, more like sitting stagnant for a decade. I love opiates, but they make me content with being nothing, and like all my heroes warned in their books, you have to take more and more, just to feel normal, not even high, just normal. I've finally got a few good things going for me and I'm not about to let that shit slip through my fingers, like every other good thing I've ever had. I'm claiming my life as my own, if the people around me want to continue diving deeper into a pit, so be it. I've done my time and I've come to find that there's nothing down there aside from rocks that hurt really badly when you finally hit them.
I've quit booze, quit cigarettes, I'm down to 1.5mg nicotine in my vape, only use benzos for things like job interviews, and I'm going to kick opiate addiction's ass. Day #2 right now and I honestly expected worse, but I fully expect it to get worse. The kratom really helps with the withdrawal symptoms, but I get zero euphoria from it. Apparently some people get a euphoric buzz from it, but I'm perfectly fine with it just keeping me from getting sick.
I enrolled in college last semester and am considering talking to one of the free councilors that they have on campus. After a long talk with my girlfriend this morning, I realized that I have a lot of issues that I keep pushing down. For once in my life I have someone who I can feel truly cares for me and I'm not going to allow myself to let her down. Probably never going to quit that ganja though, and will occasionally take heavier psychedelics, but everything else can go fuck itself. Maybe when I'm a successful retired old man I'll get back in to opiates, like the grandpa from Little Miss Sunshine, but for now FUCK OPIATES.
Best of luck to any of you who are dealing with a similar situation. We can be here for each other.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading and if any of this resonates with you, feel free to comment or send me a DM. Best of luck and I wish for nothing but true happiness for you all. :)

2019.04.15 12:05 StarsAreMine13 Celebrity Autobiography/Memoirs

First time poster so forgive the rudimentary style.
And thank you for any help I can get, bc I’m running out of an entire genre of books! I tend to pretty much focus on non fiction. I am obsessed with celebrity memoirs and Autobiographies. I’ve read so many I feel Theres no one left. If you can suggest a book that is not on the list of people I have covered I’d be eternally grateful. Some Of the basics I’ve read : Lee Grant, Sally Field, Tina Turner, (also not written by her but) Jackie O, JFK jr, robin Williams, Mia farrow, Tiffany Haddish,Karine Stefans, Patti LuPone, Nikki Sixx, Mel B, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown, Scott Thomson/Liberace, Freddy Mercury and his partner Jim, Andy Cohen Amy Schumer, Patti Boyd Janice Dickinson Sharon Osbourne, David Spade Chris O’Dell, the three girls held hostage in a basement for 10 years (can’t think of their name forgive me ) Brandi Glanville Erika Jayne, Tom Cruise (by Andrew Morton)
I especially especially love memoirs about relationships with celebrities such as Patti Boyd’s book about her marriage to George Harrison/Eric Clapton, and another book by some stripper who dated Joe Walsh. So if you have a book about a celebrity relationship that would be extra points in my book. (Pun very much intended ...) (however I did not care for “Let’s Spend the Night Together” or the book about Steve Jobs for some strange reason )
Some Fiction books I’ve liked: Big Little Lies, Tampa , Room (Just to help you get a feel For my taste) but these books are few and far between.
Thanks so much again ;)

Any chance of subsequent shows/tours after your tour in April? I live in the Southeast and would love to see you guys some time. In time...After Motley ends SixxAM will be my main focus...WE have a lot of MUSIC and TOURING in us...:)
Rocking the house with Modern Vintage right now as I read all this! =) Are there plans for more videos from this album? When can we see the photos PR Brown did around time of Gotta Get It Right? We are working on a video fro STARS as we speak...Paul's photos are in the album art...Cool stuff.
What made you guys decide to pick Apocalyptica as your opener? Nikki, you interview a lot of new bands on Sixx Sense and promote new music. Looking forward to seeing you guys in April! Loving "STARS" We LOVE the band...I have been a fan for years...So happy they are gonna do the tour...Gonna be an amazing night of music...
Hi! Any idea what Ric Ocasek thinks of your "Drive" cover? We hope we made him and the rest of the Cars proud...
What song of your 3 albums are you more excited to play live ? Thats a hard question...Can I say all of them?
So excited to see you in SF! Will you be mixing up the set with all three albums, or concentrating mostly on Modern Vintage? (I'd love to hear "Van Nuys," by the way.) We will play stuff from all 3 albums and probably some different version of songs as well.
Decades ago, exercise was not important or part of the rock scene (thin was in)...but do you think you guys find yourself wanting to pump iron, exercise and stay fit more these days than you did in the 80s and 90s? How do you stay pumped and/or fit? I am addicted to the gym...Stronger makes you last longer...I am in this for the lonnng run.
I love "Get Ya Some"! It was a very fun song to sing! Yes and the lyrics are a real journey too..
Have you decided on the next single? Yes.
Nikki, I just saw your last tour and was wondering what Alice Cooper is like off stage? And can we petition to get SIXX:A.M. on the Terminator 5 soundtrack? What's your best Arnold movie? Alice is a great guy...Solid...Love him..
Nikki- Modern Vintage is an incredible album, but I'm curious: After writing/performing heavier music with both Sixx:A.M. and Mötley Crüe, what was it like working on a more "vintage" album? Two different bands and different visions..Both a magical to me...
I know your shows are somewhat rare occasions, but were you guys planning on any shows abroad (e.g. the UK) at some point? Would make my year! Yes,in time...
We are so excited to be touring now that we have THREE albums of music to select from. Fans can expect a very theatrical journey with our live show that reflects the drama of all of our records. We are so excited that Apocalyptica is joining us too! Right,what James said...
DJ - in which band did you play before GNR? DJ played in Beautiful Creatures...

Questions Answers
1) What was it like working with Taylor? Taylor was great to collaborate with. Fast, fun, super-spontaneous.
2) Would you (or do you have any plans to) like to work with her again? Please! Tell her I'm waiting for her with notebook and acoustic guitar.
3) When working on Closing Time, did you expect it to get as big as it did? No idea "Closing Time" would be a hit. Thought it would be very useful for the bartenders of the world. And it has been!
Hi Dan!!! Never You Mind is and always has been one of my all time favorite songs. WHERE ON EARTH DID THAT COME FROM? I love the intensity behind it. Also, how was working with Rivers Cuomo? Was it as wonderful as I imagine it would be? "Never You Mind" came from two things - one day in the studio I sat down at the piano and that intro riff just jumped out of my fingers, and I knew I had to make it into a song. And then I'd been thinking about the best way to settle a conflict and I was toying with the idea of just saying, "Hey, let's forget it!" rather than trying to talk it out. So the title, "Never You Mind," (which my grandma used to say) was next. And then the song. Glad you love it.
How was your move to Los Angeles from Minneapolis, and how do the two cities compare? I love Minneapolis, it'll always be my home.
(As a Minnesotan, I'm hoping you'll say that we're number one in your heart.) You are number one.
In closing time, when you wrote the line "I Know who I want to take me home" was there a specific person in mind? Also, I just wanted to say, when I first heard the song FNT in Ten Things I Hate about you, I fell in love with it. To this day it's one of my favorite songs about falling in love. Did you have a specific person in mind when you wrote that song as well? "FNT" was actually about two bands that I loved (disappointing? weird? equally romantic?) - The Hangups and The Tropicals. I felt like both bands were my own little secret, and I wanted to write them a tribute.
When did you realize that you finally "made it"? I've "made it"?
That is awesome news because now I can relax or take a vacation or something.
Your songs feature a lot of great instrumental intros, “California” “Love Without Fear”, “FNT” “Never You Mind.” Any songwriting insights on how to do that? Thank you! I don't know how those happen, but I do think it's important to have the hookiness start right at the beginning. So maybe I'm treating the intro as an equal section of the song.
Hi Dan, love the work you did for Adele. I'm a songwriter and am glad to have had a constant writing routine this time. Now I feel I've way too many songs. Do you prefer to finish every song or rather sort out before the arranging/producing starts? Not sure you can have too many songs. Unless it's like a thousand. That would be too many. I wrote maybe 50 for my last album. 60-some for "Feeling Strangely Fine" by Semisonic. (Not all good.) That seems like a good number.
Dan, what's your advice for musicians that want to start working as songwriter? Get good: Write lots of songs. LOTS! Get in front of an audience, even if your plan is not to be a performer, and show them your songs. These are the two main ways to get good. Have friends: Write hits for your friends to sing. (At least write things you think are hits.) Help other people with their music. Hang out. Set up shows with friends. Write songs with friends. Don't worry too much about networking with already-massive artists. Your friends will be massive in time.
What was the meanest thing a collaborator, venue owner, promoter or record exec ever said to you about your songwriting/musicianship/etc? I'm sure I've heard some mean stuff but I can't remember any of it. Thing is, I have a big ego, so even someone "not liking" my stuff seems super-mean to me. :)
Hello Dan. I've been following your music career since I was living in Colombia. Your lyrics helped me a lot to improve my speaking and reading. I noticed your excellent calligraphy in your recent videos, setlists and pictures. How long did it take you to learn that art? I learned calligraphy while my daughter was in the hospital for a month last summer. I had been thinking about it a lot before that, but when her illness began I knew I'd have a lot of "downtime" at the hospital, so I bought the pens and "learned it from a guy on the internet." Hours every day for weeks. Mostly I copy a guy named Seb Lester.
Hey Dan, I love your song writing. You and Chris Stapleton writing together is amazing. Any word on when he is releasing his album? I can't get enough of "The Right Ones" What is Chris like to work with? Yay Chris Stapleton! I love that dude and his music. "The Right Ones" is a fave collaboration of mine. He and I went down to New Orleans together and wrote 6 songs with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (wow!) and then at the end we wrote "The Right Ones" for Chris to sing.
As a songwriter, are there any songs out there you wish you had written? Not because it was popular and made a lot of money, but a song that touched you so deeply that you wish you had composed it instead? "Crazy" By Gnarls Barclay gave me that feeling. "Somebody that I Used to Know" by Gotye gave me that feeling in a big way.
Do you know that you share your name with one of the best defensive catchers in baseball history? Not only do I know that, but Dan Wilson and I used to hang out at the same espresso joint on Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis when he was catching for the Minnesota Gophers college baseball team. But we never net. The staff would say to me, "The other Dan Wilson just left! You missed him again!"
How did you wind up working with Adele? That was a blind date set up by Rick Rubin, who was producing her album. He's a fan of my writing, we had worked on a bunch of records before that.
Dan, what song are you most proud of working on with your band? What song are you most proud of working on with another artist? "Someone Like You" is pretty unbeatable. "Not Ready to Make Nice" - Dixie Chicks and I took on a big challenge and prevailed :) I'm really proud of those two. "Secret Smile" of Semisonic's songs, and also "California." Those seem perfect to me.
Years ago, I heard songs from an abandoned studio album by The Triopicals (Craig Wright and Peter Lawton) that both you and Jake Slichter played on. Can you tell me more about this album that has never been released and your involvement in it? Awww. I loved those Tropicals tracks we did. "The one that got away." I produced. I think jacob and I wrote the string arrangements (mostly him, probably.) Jake played drums on a few songs.
What is the best advice ever given to you? I was at a Q&A with the painter Frank Stella. I asked him why so much bad art was in the museums. He said, "It's not your job to care about bad art. Don't worry about that. It's your job to find art that inspires you and which you love, and figure out how the artist did it."
Can you sing us a song about reddit? Get deep into the nitty gritty stuff too! I won't be able to process my emotions about Reddit for a few days at least. Then I'll write my Reddit song.
What song have you written do you wish more fans would recognize you for? What was the first song you wrote where you were like "hey, I'm pretty good at this songwriting thing - maybe good enough to be on the radio." "All Will Be Well" by Gabe Dixon and me - that's one of my faves and very few people have heard it. I did fine with "Treacherous" by me and Taylor Swift, but I actually wish more people could hear that song. First song where I thought, "I can do this": "Temptation" by Semisonic.
I love all will be well, that line, "you can ask me how but only time will tell" is probably the most encouraging thing i've ever heard. I use it as a motto, so thank you for that! PS, you're recording on Live at the Pantages is my favorite one of that song, so thanks for that too :) A friend of mine who died last week asked me to sing "All Will Be Well" at her memorial next week. We'll see what that song means in that setting.
Why did you decide to do a PledgeMusic campaign? Is it something you'd recommend to other artists? I did the PledgeMusic campaign mostly because my friends who had done them said it was awesome. What I wasn't expecting was how cool it would be to create all the bonus items, artworks, deluxe album book - it's been a gas to have all these interesting art projects to do. Hard work but super fun.
Among piano and guitar, what instruments do you play? are you self taught or did you take lessons? and any advice for artists looking to branch out? Took a few guitar lessons. Mostly self-taught.
Took years and years of piano lessons, including jazz piano for a year. Not self-taught. A good counter-balance.
Do you have any advice on arranging and recording songs? When you record at home, how do you do it (that sounds silly), and more realistically, what would you recommend to someone who isn't already a world famous artist? Thanks! Record music for a purpose. Hopefully the purpose involves an audience, rather than an audition. Record music for your friends and whatever fans you might have. Don't spend too much time recording music for "gate-keepers" or kingmakers or mucky mucks. Waste of time. Make music for people to use in their lives. In car, in club, while washing dishes, during sex. Be useful :)
I know this can be interpreted as a pretty nebulous question, but what does music mean to you personally? It can mean so many different things to so many people... Music is to me the key to the meaning of life. I feel that music is to me what religion is to very religious people. I think it's the intersection between our minds/bodies and the intentions of whatever forces created us.
Are you particularly fond of a certain song on "Love Without Fear"? Maybe one with an interesting story behind it? I love "We Belong Together." I think it's about me and my wife and our life together. She thinks it's about me and a guy friend of mine. I like it partly because it's one of the two songs from "Love Without Fear version 1" - wherein I played all the instruments but the horns. I'm glad I re-made the album, but I'm glad those two songs survived the cut.
How many tacos can you eat in one sitting? Two.
Three if small fish tacos.
Hi Dan, my familiy and I are fans of yours for years. My wife loves the 'Mrs. Clause' song. Is there a chance you will release it on CD? How about a Christmas album?😉 I love "Mrs. Claus" too. Wrote it with Craig Wright, who used to be in The Tropicals, now he writes movies ("Mr. Peabody") and TV shows ("Six Feet Under," "Brothers and Sisters," "Lost," "Dirty Sexy Money.") I've been thinking about asking Craig to write a few more Christmas songs with me.
I remember seeing a video of you working on your songwriting with a lot of 3 x 5 index cards, what role do they they play in your creative process? I have a pile of a hundred or so index cards with titles or couplets of lyrics or melody ideas written on them in pencil. On days when I don't know what to write about, I randomly take a card from the pile and see if it inspires me. If not, I keep turning the cards over until one of them inspires, and then I finish that song.
I had the pleasure of interning under your friend Andy while he recorded and produced Jeremy Messersmith's "The Reluctant Graveyard". Such an amazing record and experience, I was wondering what your time was like working on "The Silver City" and how collaborating with artists who are also great songwriters compares to writing for yourself or for other people? Do they still make the Juicy Lucy at Matt's? That is a dangerous but amazing burger (the molten cheese inside the patty very hot).
Also, best burger in Minneapolis? Loved working on "The Silver City." I think it took way longer than Jeremy hoped, but we learned a lot and the music is awesome.
Dan- Was there a real "Tool Master" in Brainerd? Thanks! Ha ha! No, I think the Toolmaster was a fictional character in my brother Matt's mind.
If you ran a bar what exact time would closing time be for said bar? My bar would never close, baby.
But we'd play "closing time" 24/7.
Do you wake up with music in your head? How do you get it down before you lose it? I always used to have a little memo device for this purpose. I'd wake up with a melody in my head and record it right away. Now I use my phone's Voice Memo application.
How do you write music in band, versus as a soloist, and especially in regards to coming up with the parts for instruments other than your own? I think the main thing is to find the right collaborators - if you want to be able to suggest a bassline to the bassist, you better find a dude who doesn't go ballistic when you do that. If you want to just do your own thing and let them do theirs, then find musicians who have the "big picture" in mind - arranger-types who understand it's not all about "turn ME up in the mix please."
What was your contribution to the song, “Na Na Nothing” by Mike Doughty? Mike Doughty heard a song that I'd written with Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue (?!?!?) called "Na Na Nothing," and he always thought it was cool. He probably thought it was cool mostly because of the super-weird combo of me and Nikki Sixx. (Which even I can't really imagine happening, though it did.) One day, he e-mailed me to say, "I ganked the chorus of that song you wrote with Nikki Sixx and used it in a new song of mine. Hope you're okay with that." Which I was, I love Mike's song and re-purposing of my chorus.
I think Mike also re-wrote a few lines of the chorus.
Have you ever had a terrible writing session or have you turned one down because of the other artist's attitude, reputation, ego, etc.? I turn down sessions all the time. Sometimes because the person has a reputation of not showing up reliably. Sometimes because I get the feeling they're not actually into co-writing. But usually it's because I'm too damn busy, even to do the stuff I really want to do! Most people who make music and dream of a career as a recording artist are pretty nice. I've had 99% happy, pleasant collaborations. Lucky? Or just because I love musicians? Anyway, the bad ones are rarer than rare.
What were some major label contemporaries from your Semisonic days that you really respected, thought were awesome, but somehow didn't manage to find an audience? I probably didn't notice the most obscure ones... So these will be who I loved and thought could be huger. I loved Fountains of Wayne, Liz Phair (the best), Soul Coughing, Iffy, Magnetic Fields...
Been a fan since I first heard "Toolmaster" back in the early 90's. From my username, you can probably figure out why. I've always wondered if there's a story behind that song, and how much input you personally had in it's creation? My only contribution to "Toolmaster" was turning it from a very slow dirge that Matt had written into a rock song with a beat.
I think it might be indirectly about some cousins of ours.
No pun intended, what's an example of a specific "sonic" moment in one of your songs just makes you really happy? Like a drum fill, a synth intro, a cadence in a vocal or something? About 3/4 of the way through "California" by Semisonic, the drums get quiet and everything becomes small and crackly, and then it sounds like the music is tearing through a giant wall. I love that.
When you write a song, do you write it out on staff paper, or memorize the parts as you come up with them, or something else entirely for that matter? I can read staff paper but what I do is really folk music, it's supposed to work by memory. So I just write down the lyrics and remember the melody and chords. If I can't remember the melody the next day from just reading the lyrics, it's probably not that great of a melody.
Who do you want to work with next? I'd love to do something with Nico Muhly someday. I'd love to make music with Scott Hansen of Tycho someday. I love First Aid Kit, maybe they'll let me write a song with them or produce some tracks. McCartney because he's the best composer of the last hundred years.
Semisonic is basically the soundtrack to my formative years- from convincing all of my friends to buy Great Divide after getting a copy from my dad's music distribution buddies to getting frustrated that everyone boiled the band down to the (admittedly great) "Closing Time" to blasting "Chemistry" in my Wrangler as I drove around campus in college- I just wanted to say thank you. (and thanks for being so very gracious on Twitter- you're brilliant to your fan-followers, truly.) But for all the "how was it to work with" questions, I have to ask about one of my favorite songwriters ever- Carole King. "One True Love" is so beautiful and just as soul-searching as it is light. What was it like to write and sing with her? Thank you. Carole King was gracious, funny, put me at ease, got down to business. Writing with her was like a master class, but we got a great song at the end. And we've been in touch on and off since then. What a classy, funny, fearless, brilliant person. Lucky me to run into her so early in my writing career.
When you sit down for a writing session, do you aim to write about a specific emotion or event or topic, and write about that, or do you just sit with pen and paper and wait to see what comes? Usually talk about "what's up" for quite a while. Play each other stuff on Youtube we've been listening to. Show and tell a few new songs... Get a feel for where it might go. Then, start talking about ideas. Often the conversation contained three or four great topics or titles for a song already.
What brand(s) of insruments do you prefer to play? Gibson acoustic guitars from the 1950's are the best.
What are your thoughts on Spotify/streaming sites and the impact on the songwriting industry? Eventually there will be only free music. Or at least the makers of the music will not be paid. But a lot of the music will still be AMAZING! And somehow the artists will make a living. That's what I think.
Who have you been listening to lately? Tycho's new album "Awake" is AMAZING Beck's new album "Morning Phase" is AMAZING!!! Beethoven's opus 59, no. 1 String quartet by Orion quartet is AMAZING!!! Those three.
Hello from a fellow Minnesotan. What are you favorite venues around town that might be overlooked? The Aster Cafe in Minneapolis is nice. Hmmm... I bet you know more than I do - I've lived in LA for almost 4 years!
What time, exactly, is closing time? It's always closing time somewhere.
When can I expect the Love Monsters reunion? "Ah Rebecca, baby doll inspector!" That ain't gonna happen but you just made me smile very happily.
Do you have any favorite songs to play that aren't your own? As in favorite songs to cover. End of the World by Skeeter Davis.
Saw you guys play in Marshall, MN in 1998... was a great show! Whoah!
Also, got full use of my isuzu trooper's cargo area that night. I have never gotten "full use" of my Subaru's cargo area.
Dan, prudy please give an honest assessment of a Trip Shakespeare reunion -- new recording best hope, but a one off 1st Ave show will do just fine. Hmmm... I'm not sure if that's going to happen or not. We sure loved playing a couple of songs for the New Standards' holiday gig this winter. The amount of effort to do "just one show" would be the same amount of effort to do a month of shows. But I can't figure out for myself at least when that month might happen. Sorry I can't be more clear or just say yes :)
I'd just like to say Closing Time is the song that most reminds me of the 90s. Me too! That song totally reminds me of 1997 when I wrote and recorded it.
Holy cow, Semisonic is still my favorite nostalgia-laden rock from the late 90s. Thank you so much for the awesome music. When I started playing guitar I made sure to learn some Semisonic as soon as I could! Our music sounded nostalgic even when it was new.
I just wanted to say with every grammy you win, I get more hopeful of a Trip Shakespeare vinyl reissue. Hmmm, you are not too far off - it's a hope of mine too, let's say.
I fuckin love your third eye blind song "closing time", how did you come up with that one? Sorry dude that joke was already used in the movie "Friends With Benefits." It was funny that time :)

Questions Answers
Hey Nikki. Big fan. I'm a bass player because of you. My question is: If you could give Justin Beiber some man-to-boy advice, what would it be? You need to know who your audience is...when your audience is 11 - 15 year old girls, you can't promote yourself as a pot-smoking, hooker fucking wannabe thug...I understand that your 19 and your balls just dropped, but you gotta use your brain and let your audience grow with you. you're jumping the gun and leaving your fans behind and now they are confused...if i were you, I'd take a serious look at who your audience is...
Will you take me shopping with you so I can watch you try on leather pants? I don't have to see you naked, I just want to see you in leather. Bucket List complete! Hey, someone had to ask, right? :-) Yes...but, the best part about shopping with me is when I try on the dresses...
Lets address the elephant in the room. Who banged more girls, you or Tommy lee? Vince Neil.
What was your immediate reaction to when Ozzy Osbourne won that gross-off when he snorted up your urine? I know, it's weird question, but I really want to know for some reason. EDIT: Sorry, double checked and he snorted it. Don't know which one's worse. We were in a contest to see who could be more that moment I realized...Ozzy is the reigning champ.
What's your biggest regret? The biggest lesson that i've learned is that drugs don't work...yet I wouldn't change the past because that's part of what made me who I am hard as it was.
A few of us girls here want to know if you cook? We all love a man who can cook. In a pinch, to not starve to death, i can do a mean top ramen...
Will SIXX: A.M. ever go on tour? Once Motley Crue wraps their final show...the opportunities for touring will be wide open...
Nikki what the FUCK man, you guys are killing me with this breaking up shit lol. Anyway, Lars did a (mediocre) AmA yesterday and it got me thinking. In the documentary "Heavy: The Story of Metal" I remember Lars talking about how Motley and Metallica had issues back in the day. You all ever patch that up or is there still tension? Cant wait to see you guys in Camden. I actually talk to Lars from time to time and have massive respect for their staying power and what they've's those bands who can go through the high high highs and the low low lows that I always respect most...
What was the last concert you went to where you sat in the audience unrecognized (or mostly unrecognized), like a regular joe? Unfortunately, it's hard to go to rock concerts and sit in the audience so I watch shows from the fiance recently took me to the L.A. Philharmonic which was a much different experience as a rock show, and I think I was the only one there with hair...
Hi Nikki, thank you for doing this. I've been waiting for this AMA since it was announced. I was born in 1992 so Motley Crue was a little before my time, but Sixx:AM is right up my ally. I love that band. I loved the Heroin Dairies and the soundtrack even more. By far one of my favorite albums. My question is, of all the songs you wrote for the Heroin Dairies Soundtrack, which song did you like the most, what song embodies who you are, what you've been through and where you are now? When we were writing the album, we didn't really know what we were doing other than following the storyline in the book...when it was all said and done, the song that just jumped off the record and touched everybody was Life Is Beautiful...i've seen more people with those words tattooed on them than any other song. just shows the power of music and it's something me and James are very proud of.
What hit song if any, do you still love playing? Livewire is the one song that we I believe have never not played live. And that song represents Motley Crue on every level...and I think it's still one of my favorite songs to play live...
Nikki! Welcome to reddit! Seen you 3 times, looking forward to another this summer! Are you guys breaking out any tracks you might not normally play this time around? We haven't got around to picking the setlist...just started the preliminary design on the stage show...
Hey Nikki thanks for doing this AMA! Just seconds ago I ordered tickets to see you guys in Birmingham August 15th! The Dirt is one of my favorite books and I have read it so many times my copy is falling apart. Just one question! Who would you like to see play you in the now confirmed movie in 2015? The band's vision is that there will be edgy, unknown actors playing us and that the visual presentation needs to be closer to Goodfellas, Boogie Nights or Trainspotting...and the benchmark for what this movie will NEVER be are cheesy movies like Rock Star and Rock of Ages...
Hi Nikki, first i'd like to say You are what inspired to start playing bass. My question to you is, What Inspired you play bass? I was drawn to the wasn't even a choice for me...i didn't even think about drums or guitar or anything...i have a songwriting room in my house and I have guitars, pianos and 99% of the time, I pick up the bass...because I love it...
1) After the final tour is done, what will be your main focus as far as projects go? 2) I know you have been sober for years now. Do you still find it hard to hang out with your fellow musician friends that still live the party lifestyle? I just signed a 4 year extension on my contract with my radio show...and that's something I could see doing for the rest of my life...I love listening to music, playing music and finding new music through Sixx Sense...and interviewing new and established artists...writing more books...more music with Sixx:A.M. (touring)...and I might even pick up gardening...
Hi Nikki :). All of the addicts in my life go to rehab and come up with their own "plan " to stay sober without after care, counseling, and 12 step programs. Needless to say this never works. Did you go through this and if so, at what point did you finally realize that you should give in and try something else? There's really only one true path to recovery that's using the 12 step program and finding a belief in something greater than yourself (spirituality).
Is a UK / worldwide tour off the table for the final farewell tour? If so, any particular reasoning for it? Also for your Tats, do you stick to one shop/artist or go wherever? 2015 International dates are coming soon...
What album did you enjoy making the most, and why? Have any of your guests on Sixx Sense been wildly different than you expected them to be, personality or behaviour-wise? They are all different processes...right now, on the heals of announcing our final tour, I'm feeling sort of sentimental about the recording of Too Fast For Love.
I am a HUGE fan of Sixx:AM. Will you be touring the midwest with Sixx:AM any time soon, specifically the KC area? Meet and greets? Favorite color? After we release "three" and Motley takes our final bow, the opportunities for touring are wide open.
Hey, Nikki, been a fan of you and the crue ever since I got into music. Just wanted to say, I can finally get around to seeing you guys in concert and I look forward to seeing you all in Jersey this summer. It's going to be bittersweet for sure. Question time: What moment or show stands up more than anything from your whole career? The 1983 US festival where we played to 35000 people still has to be one of the coolest highlights of our career.
Hi Nikki! Will you guys definitely be coming to the UK during the final tour? Desperate to see you all! :D Gutted about the breakup, but thank you all so much for the music over the years! International dates will be announced later this year...stay tuned...
What aspect of your job do you genuinely dislike? I dislike leaving my family...and the months on the road away from them...but, with that being said, I love performing live for my fans more than just about anything...that's probably my biggest struggle for my job.
Name 5 things on your bucket list. Would like to photograph in places and document journalistically people and places under duress 2. would like to travel not in a band to places I haven't been to like Egypt, Turkey, China (all with my camera and notepad) 3. I'd like to do a supergroup one day, one album, one tour 4. I'd like to skydive naked 5. love to drive across america in a car jack kerouac style (again...not in a band)
No question, I´d like to say my respect! Thank you for everything and hope, we´ll see you in Europe next year! Yes you will!

Questions Answers
How do we know this is actually the band answering questions and not your PR guys? Fuck you! Go fuck yourself!
Would you mind if I started an all Jewish Mötley Crüe cover band called Mötley Jëw? Tommy: Fucking awesome.
Mick: On Family Guy they had the Jew Man Group, why not!
What's the most memorable fan you have ever encountered? One of the in-stores we did...there was a group of girls that were so smart, they figured out how to take the distributor cap off of our van so that we couldn't go anywhere. They wanted some time, they got it.
Can you guys out-coke Charlie Sheen? We like Charlie.
What was the gnarliest thing you've seen a girl do? Tommy: Be quiet. Mick: The 14 inch brautwurst I saw a girl swallow without breaking it.
Tommy: Fuck! Was I not in the room for that? Mick: You guys were probably cooking up shit in the ashtray in the other room.
What's your favorite city to play in and why? What's your least favorite city to play in and why? That's probably the hardest question we ever get because each city has it's own personality. As for our least favorite, we haven't played it yet.
Would you consider having your last show at the Whiskey? Not a bad idea. Only if we could blow it up.
Mick: If we can blow it up.
Congrats on the second residency @The Joint!! Will be in Vegas in October to get a piece done at Vince Neil Ink. Are there any tattoos that you got while out on the road that you absolutely hate? Mick: Ahhh...there's my regret. I have a tramp stamp.
What's the craziest thing that ever happened on tour, that hasn't been told 100 times by now? Nikki and Tommy cooking freebase with used ashtrays somewhere in Canada...
I'm a huge fan! I saw you guys in LA with KISS and I was so excited when you guys came out! That was one of the best concerts I've been too! Can you guys do a shout out to my mom? She's a huge fan too! :) Does your mom look like the devil? Didn't we meet her in '83?
What's the story behind the umlauts? And hey, you didn't put them in your title! Mötley Crüe! Lowenbrau.
How did you like the first Intimate Evening in Hell here ? I loved it but like to hear how you liked it ? In your was... ? Looking forward ALL the other Intimate Evenings cause I'll be here... =) Nikki: I had a blast. Anytime there's that much volume and fire, I'm happy. Looking at Tommy's fear of fireballs was pretty crazy. This was the first time I've seen a little bit of "Oh SHIT!" in his eyes.
For Nikki! I'm a big Thunderbird fan, what are the differences between them and your new Schecter models? You, Mick, Tommy, and Vince are my heroes, thank you for everything you've done! I have loved the Thunderbird since I was a kid and they've had challenges sonically. It's been tough to get them up to par sound wise. With Schechter I wanted to make a bass that was up to the sound I wanted. Anytime one band member's instrument sounds better, the band sounds better.
Did you guys ever expect to become as big as you are now? Nikki: No. We expected to become smaller.
Nikki: You know what's more interesting than this question? There's a meth lab out of the back of van behind the hotel. Tommy: What side of the hotel are you on?

What was your favorite song you've ever written? Nikki: I've been digging some of the early stuff...Livewire. Mick: Primal Scream Tommy: I agree.
Hey guys, what's your best backstage moment? Nikki: You know what's more interesting than this question? There's a meth lab out of the back of van behind the hotel.

What is your advice to aspiring musicians? Practice.
Can I bake you guys a cake? Would it be an evil cake?
When was the moment you guys realized you finally made it big? Nikki: Last week. Mick: The first million that someone ripped off...that's when I knew.
Nikki -- Last week.
My B-day is Oct. 5th. Why is this venue going to be awesome? Give me a good reason to go!!! Be ready for lots of heat. Happy Birthday.
What is your craziest story?
What new or up-and-coming bands do you guys like? Nikki -- I really like Black Spider.
Motley crue's would. Fuck you too.
I just wanted to say thank you to Nikki Sixx for your books and forming Sixx a.m. Because of your courage and inspiring stories you have encouraged me and assisted in my one and a half year sobriety from heroin. To get an acknowledgement from you would be a dream come true! ♥ :)
Just had to let you know, my cousin walked down the aisle at her wedding to Home Sweet Home. The organist never showed and that's all anyone knew how to play on piano! Also, holy shit I love you guys! Edit* spelling That's awesome!
"Kickstart My Heart" kicks ass. We agree. :)
Tommy: Be quiet. Mick: The 14 inch brautwurst I saw a girl swallow without breaking it. Tommy: Fuck! Was I not in the room for that?
Not a question but a thank you. My boyfriend is a major Motley Crue fan for years, on our first year anniversary I took him to see you guys and we had one of our best date. 8 years later we are still rocking to the crue on every roadtrip, a tradition for us. :) Fucking awesome.
I have loved the Thunderbird since I was a kid and they've had challenges sonically. It's been tough to get them up to par sound wise. With Schechter I wanted to make a bass that was up to the sound I wanted. Anytime one band member's instrument sounds better, the band sounds better. I'm extremely happy with the new bass sounds and looks.
I have to say that my favorite song performed live is Primal Scream. That song is so raw. I Love it!! Tommy -- Love playing this song live! One of my favorites.
Tommy -- Love playing this song live! One of my favorites. Mick -- Me too.
Nikki -- Last week. Mick -- The first time someone stole $1Million from me.
NOTley Crüe probably. That's pretty great.
You guys fucking suck. Fuck you too.

2012.03.21 18:15 WutRWords Reddit, how can I try to give my friend some perspective on his highly-destructive relationship?

They met in a psych ward over Christmas after the death of my friends mother lead to a suicide attempt. He moved her in with us (we were roommates at the time) after knowing her for one week, me having never met her. When she moved in, it was apparent that she was going to be a problem, but there was nothing I could say or do because my friend is very co-dependent and this was his first real girlfriend despite him being 25 (I'm sure a lot of you forever alones out there can relate). So, this girl is 18 and here's a list of daily activities she cannot accomplish on her own: inserting a tampon, using a can-opener (electric or manual), inhale smoke from a cigarette (which would be fine if she hadn't claimed to smoke weed/tobacco), be hygienic (she'd never shaved before, OR showered on a daily basis). To put it simply; bitch couldn't make EasyMac. It's over a year later and she still fucks it up.
So, they hook up and my friend goes all balls-deep into romantic soul-mate land with his first girlfriend. They decide to get pregnant despite him not having a job and her being too dumb to live. Slowly, my friend starts realizing that his woman is a retarded infant and there's nothing he can do about it. He tried very, very hard. And he was pretty patient, I'll give him that. He's the only dude I've known who's had to teach his girl to grow into a woman, despite already being a legal adult. She just can't. She's too dumb. We've both been supportive of her, but anything we try to challenge her with is brushed aside. "Hey, Derpette, what's 2 times 5?" Her: "Whatever!" Really? So now his patience is tried every day and as she gets upset that she's expected to take care of herself more. With them having a child, she NEEDS to be able to do things on her own, but can't be trusted with ANYTHING.
So in their first year, she cheated on him several times. Once with a friend IRL, and COUNTLESS times with people online. Some may be thinking "Online shit's no big deal, it's not like they did anything physical." Good point. The scary part though was how far these relationships got. Somehow this dumber-than-a-rock wench could get people she'd never met before willing to feed and house her. More than one of her online relationships ended with a poorly-thought-out-and-executed escape plan that in one case actually would have required her to hop a plane to another country. Yes, she actually thought that she, with no money, car, or help, was going to get a plane ticket and fly overseas to live with a dude she'd been dating online for about a week, while still living under my friend's roof.
So, now the relationship is a bit violent. They both yell and claw. One night my friend goes to sleep after some drinks. His girlfriend calls the police on him at 2am while he's passed out in bed. She shows the police an unrelated bruise and says he hit her. This is not her idea, by the way. Someone she was flirting with online convinced her to call the police on him for no reason, and she's dumb enough to listen to a stranger telling her to call the cops on her fiancee to get him out of the picture. He's taken to jail. While he's in jail, she invites some of the black neighbors from across the hall over. They take my friend's PS3, laptop, tool box, several games, and a bunch of other shit. She 'sold' this stuff to them for like $60 or something (no concept of value, still can't match). She then loads his guitar (Epiphone Les Paul Custom), amp, computer, and anything else she can recognize as possibly valuable, loads it into my friends card, and PAYS SOMEONE TO DRIVE MY FRIENDS 2011 Taurus SHO. Why? Because bitch is dumb and can't drive. She then gets into a little run-in with police after some people call the police on her after noticing she had left their infant unattended in the Taurus on a summer day while her and some friends were off fucking around. After that, she takes the money from selling all his shit and gets "Nikki" and "Sixx" tattooed on her wrists. She ditches the car, takes the kid, tells him where the car is, and isn't seen for about 2 weeks while she's out having a blast with new friends and money. I got home-boy bailed out. He and I crack out on Terraria while she's out slutting around. She comes back, he's happier than shit. Rinse, repeat.
This week was the most recent time she tried to completely abandon him out of nowhere. My friend dropped her off with some people she'd just met to give LARP-ing a go. She ends up staying the night, then the next day is all "I hate you, I'm not coming back." For once, my buddy actually says "I don't know if I want her back this time." Score! So we hang out, listen to music, talk about it. I remind him of all the awful shit she's done to him, etc etc. Next morning she comes back and I look on my FB wall to see from him "my baby came back this morning. we are soulmates."
Any suggestions of something that might open his eyes a little? I've been trying to avoid being mean or rude to him; it IS his life to fuck up, I just don't want to watch anymore. As easy as it'd be to just say "Fuck you dude, you're shameless and spineless and I haven't the time for either!", I'd really like to see my friend get away from this woman before she fucks his life up more.
