New Yawkah

Oh my gawd- for those of you that don't know, I have recorded some songs for my friend's electronica-pop album and from what I heard they're pretty darn good. The masters are slowly getting done and he's posting each song as they are ready before the album officially comes out, or as the kids say, "drop".

Now, I've heard the songs before, but with a closer listen I realized that because he's from New Jersey and I'm from New York proper, you can totally hear our accents on some words like "can't" and "again" even though we're singing. It's the kind of thing that most people won't pick up, but I will. I mean, I spent years trying to get rid of the accent and I have succeed somewhat, but I'm finding as I get older I don't care anymore and it comes out. Especially when I'm drinking. Which is at least 23 hours out of the day.

But all kidding aside, it reminds me of the time I saw the tape of my 6th grade play years later and my line was, "This is Norway", but instead it came out, "This is Naw-weigh". Truth. If you haven't had enough, this is a fascinating read.
