Hey Summer in the City,
This record is an example of an artsong I composed using a Craigslist posting. What I would like to do is create a spoken word performance of the Craigslist postings found below performed with original piano music representing the subtext.
POSTING: you offered me chicken, but ended up stealing my heart - m4m - 24 (East Village)
Date: 2010-04-30, 9:16AM EDT
I was blissfully walking home after seeing a show with my friend when you stopped me on the street and offered to share your recently purchased chicken. My mom always told me the way to a mans heart is through his stomach. I never knew what she meant until now. I was nervous and declined the invitation. I also wasn't sure if you mistook the friend I was walking with for Rihanna (he gets that a lot). I was hungry bro :(
Posting: Hey Dudes!
I'm hoping this finds the two of you well. Sorry for being all blacked out in your apartment.
At least I think there were two of you.
You see, Saturday night, I was at Sugarland alone. It was the night before Valentine's Day (Saturday) and I might have had a drink or two too many.
I was hoping you could fill me in on a few crucial details, so I've put together a short list.
-Was I making out with one/both of you at Sugarland
-Did we meet outside?
-How did we decide to go back to your place?
-How long was I passed out on your couch before I came too and left all scared?
Anyway, hope your week is going good and I'm sorry for passing out at your place.
Since we're all living in BK and gay, I figure even if I don't remember you or what you look like (I don't), you guys probably will recognize me, so just tap me on the shoulder sometime and we'll all have a good laugh about it.
And thanks again for not killing/raping me. Appreciate it.
