So here is how it goes:
Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

Of course you don't need to yell, cause you're typing. Any sort of response will do ... sometimes these things are a little silly.

She came up with

MarsCon
I went because Dr D was going to be there. He offered me some stage time, gave me two songs even though he had only played one (still). Then it became dementia music central, and the most fun weekend of music every year (although Mahtowa and Duckon compete pretty strongly, but in wildly different ways)

Iowa
I grew up here, I moved away, I came back, I desperately want to leave again, but, due to the WSPA, I am here for 10 years. It's a nice place to be from

Music
I have a soundtrack in my head. Sometimes it's something I am listening to, sometimes it's something I am working on, but I always have music going.

Guitar
I never really wanted to be a guitar player, but I couldn't come up with anyone who would write what I wanted for my lyrics. Not exactly true, I found the perfect foil once, but he vanished on me one day and I didn't see him for 20 years. So I bought a guitar. I seem to be stuck now.

Toyboat
Bunch of degenerate miscreants. (yeah I know that's redundant, shaddup). My experiences in bands have been ... interesting ... as may you live in interesting times interesting. As a drummer I was marginalized, even then I was writing a lot of lyrics, all of which were ignored. It didn't help that I was a terrible drummer. My punk band Jim? was fun, but problems that at least one member of the band had made life tricky. Soldiers In A Field was the best thing I did musically up to then, but personality conflicts (I had one, he didn't) made it tricky, and the proverbial "artistic differences" finally broke us up. Pity, we did some good stuff. There are other bands in there, but they are, well, not really worth mentioning. Toyboat, as a band, has no ego. Toyboat, as individuals, have no ego. We're there to play. It's the best time I have ever had playing in a band, maybe the best time I have ever had playing music.
