My man-plumbing didn't fully start working until I was 17. My "type" was established between 5 and 8 years of age (it may have stemmed from my gazing at Linda Ronstadt album covers, being in a Hispanic majority area or a combination of the 2). About 10-11 years though I had a fleeting hard...

Let the NT world wallow in The Matrix and their blue-pill sense of fulfillment. Take what you already know and stack it with what you learn every day. If you have a hyperfocus on playing an instrument, give yourself a good hour hands-on every day, no more, no less. Even (ESPECIALLY) on those days wh...

In regards to improving social skills and dating prospects, in my own personal experience it does tend to give off a higher dividend of confidence the more I venture a bit more out of my comfort level. I am not fully "there" yet but since the time a couple of years ago when I felt "si...

I keep thinking of the Garth Brooks song, "Learning to Live Again" - "I'm gonna smile my best smile, and I'm gonna laugh like it's going out of style"

Okay... I caught my breath. That IS a serious issue. Historic preservation. Shopping malls encroach on the Battlefields of the American Civil War. And its tough trade off: the economic growth vs history. I recently read accounts by a prominent person about how all of the Nazi death camps in eastern...

I recently saw a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert that I since learned that the venue was part of the former site of the Ontario Motor Speedway - "The Indianapolis of the West". California Jam 1 and 2 were held there as well as one of Evel Knievel's jumps: The "Evel Knievel" biop...

When you (collectively or hypothetically) get so fed up with the gaslighting, the minimizing, the invalidation, the condescension, the general travesty of what constitutes society. It is such a slippery slope to avoid pulling a Jim Gordon (session musician, most notably worked with Eric Clapton as D...

Frank Zappa managed to spend a month incarcerated and dealt with the loss of his livehihood and overcame it to go on to be known worldwide as a public figure for freedom of speech (and happened to create more than a few musical masterpieces in his lifetime). According to Robert Platt Bell's "Li...

I friggin' HATE Gamestop. Nowhere to sit down, slow and clueless employees, loud commercials for their own store, I could go on but it's not an environment for me. I usually get dragged there by someone who claims to be making a "Quick visit" which averages out to 45 minutes. It's really a...

I have my on days and my off days. Actually I seem to do better when a live person picks up before I have to go into a botched script when I have to leave a voice message. I searched Youtube in vain for a song I heard on Dr. Demento years ago where alcohol helped the caller overcome his hesitation i...

I succeeded in getting my license at the age of 34, after being rejected at 18 and 24 due to the vision part of the test. Even if OP chooses not to drive, a license is still preferable over a regular ID, some places (stupid, I know) will refuse to accept tenants or even rent out motel rooms on the b...

If you spend a lot of time on Youtube you'll probably get it easier. For me, most of the time when having to listen to someone or seeking data, I tend to run at 1.25 or 1.5. When it comes to completing a task I set out to, or something where I'm in my Zone, it gravitates toward 1.5, or usually avera...

Once when I was helping an acquaintance I was able to witness someone intercepting a thief, but recently I was inside a gym and someone stole my sole running means of transport, that I reckoned to be reasonably secured. The police in my town are for the most part corrupt and I doubt they are doing t...

Ironic as it is, as a musician that has played to crowds of about 2000, I have issues with most live sound mixes. The other day I had the good fortune of attending a TSO show. I have to admit, for as many vocalists and musicians (and I was about maybe less than 10 meters from the stage) the sound le...
