Hiding from the weather
Okay, yesterday's post was written out of frustration and I feel a bit bad about it now. But on the other hand, it was written as a response to something that was published on the internet for everyone to read. I think that weblogs can and should be subjected to criticism, because they are NOT merely personal musings. Of course, that also implies that any public criticism is meant as such and not as a contribution to some personal quarrel.

I looked at some old version of the Cats on fire website yesterday and I found many, many embarrassing things that I hope no one remembers. I had written some truly awful comments to almost every song text (my own texts, that is). They were like “Yeah, this song deals with gender roles“ (it was “They produced a girl“. Not only did I seem to pretend that the song actually dealt with said subject matter (like no further explanation was needed). But I also had to enlighten the readers that this was in fact about gender, so no one would think otherwise. Elsewhere, I had just thrown in some flippant comment, thinking that the lyric in itself would be so mysteriously good that my comment would be intriguing, instead of just annoying.

In addition to that, I had written some stories, which in hindsight were complete rubbish. I just thought someone would find these thoughts interesting.

The problem was, just months after we started Cats on fire, we got some favourable response to both our music and the lyrics. It was Philip, Jan and all these for me still unknown but smart sounding persons who started to take notice, and this had an effect on my ego. And when Birthe W., whom I didn't know either, wrote some kind of essay about the lyrics to Empty Town and They Produced a Girl, I started to think I was something completely new and exciting.

I still suck up every little compliment I can find and I'm a tireless vanity-googler. But I'll never again comment my own lyrics by saying “I hope my political side does not bother you, because I want things to be quite obvious“. Good God. Of course, that is until “Phenomenal Cat: The Cats on fire story, in Mattias' own words“ hits the shelves. Look for it!
