      Quitting drinking for a little while...

      3 years ago

      We'll see how that works out. Focusing on being healthier, and unfortunately, that means cutting into my beer intake. Goddamnit.

      No longer playing with the band...

      3 years ago

      Long story short, my buddy is kind of a douche. I knew that going in, but I was there to support him anyway.

      Also, RTX. I will be there. One way or another.

      The Band's album is now available!

      3 years ago

      Just in case anyone still follows me, even though I'm not really active on here as much as I used to be, (Work and all that jazz, I promise! There isn't another site taking my time!) I thought I should let anyone know about the band I have been playing with.

      My buddy, Darren, and I go back several years. We didn't play in a band together until we had been friends for quite a few years. Close to 6 years have passed since we did play in a band together. In the last couple of years, Darren went away to Eastern Kentucky University and finished up his degree. During that time, his father was diagnosed with Cancer. After losing his father, Darren became wrapped up in music more than ever before. He went on to write music for himself to help deal with his pain. When he decided it was time to form up a band again, he got together with some friends who helped him flesh out arrangements and so forth. After spending nearly a year recording, Darren called me back in May '11 and asked me to fill in for a while until they had a full-time bassist. My job being what it is, I wasn't sure I could dedicate the time it requires to be in a band. I agreed and have not regretted it for one second. My only regret in that time is that I don't have a normal Monday - Friday job and didn't get to record on the album. Things going the way they have, I've since joined the band unofficially officially. Now, the job hunt for a normal working life is on.

      We've played a handful of shows in Chicago and down at EKU's homecoming this year. We're also playing down in Nashville on November 26th. I figured I'd post up the link here and if anyone purchases the album to please post a review. It's available on Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby as well. I'm posting the link to iTunes.

      Thanks for taking the time out to read this long-winded post. Also, I love you guys. I'm trying to be more active but I rarely go into the forums these days. Guess I should try and get myself more into the community these days.

      Apartment hunting sucks....

      3 years ago

      I have to move on by the 30th, and have yet to find an apartment for myself. Things are looking like I'll have to move in temporarily at my Mom's. Like 2 months tops. I fucking hate the idea of having to move back in. Seriously, it is bugging the ever loving shit out of me.

      Dreams that make you go WTF?!

      4 years ago

      I found myself in a Gothic-architechture style library. Very old, oddly familiar. Similar to something out of Harry Potter or any castle of old lore. I begin in an Alcove, off from a main room. I look around at a large room with a domed ceiling (I recall the Rotunda at the Museum of Science and Industry here in Chicago when I see it). In the rotunda, a black cloud/mist is floating to and fro, changing direction at will. As if it is sentient. I stare for a few hours, mesmerized by the old books, the giant stones that make up the walls and floor, and I am overcome with a feeling of dread. I turn and follow what appears to be my girlfriend. She is gorgeous and wearing a long white gown, similar to a night gown. I walk down the long, dark and ominous hallway toward her and to a larger room. We talk for a bit and eventually begin to kiss. She sits me down in a chair that is on wheels. She climbs into my lap and starts kissing me again. She tells me she is going to take care of me and show me something amazing. I feel completely at peace and forget whatever was floating around down the long hallway which is now behind me. Pretty soon she puts her hands on my back while in an embrace, and I feel a very sharp Spike enter the center of my back, between my shoulder blades. The chair begins to move backwards, sliding, as if it is on wheels. She says the time is near. We start picking up speed and the pain in my back becomes more intense but it doesn't necessarily hurt or cause me any agony. I just feel the spike going deeper and deeper. No ripping of flesh or puncture sensation, just driving deeper, as if it was always there. As we pick up speed I become worried and this woman is beginning to laugh. She gets to a point where she rears her head back, laughing upwards. We're going so fast that we should have already been in the Alcove and through the wall. Suddenly she brings her head down and forward baring razor sharp teeth as she moves at lightning speed for my throat to remove it with her bare teeth....

      It is at this moment I woke instantly 1 minute after my alarm was supposed to go off.


      I never have scary dreams or even dreams where I feel I'm in the presence of anything that could cause me the feeling of so much dread. I have never felt that much dread in my entire life, not even when I saw my Grandmother had not grabbed her newspaper for 2 days off her front porch, where I just knew she was lying in her house, no longer on this earth.

      Set a new record today...

      I managed to piss off an employee at my new store in the first 8 minutes we were open. On my first day at this store. I am feeling REALLY good about this store already.

      In the process...

      4 years ago

      Of dropping an ass-ton of weight. Well, in my eyes. Goal is about 60 lbs more. So far, doing ok. I've dropped about 10 lbs since I got back from Mexico. I'm trying to get down to my old Soccer playing weight, but I'd be willing to take 15 lbs over since I have no idea how I would even look 60 lbs lighter. I have to stop lifting weights for my workouts, I guess I'll be doing cardio like a motherfucker with a little bit of weights here and there to help burn as much fat as possible. I'm going for as shredded as possible at the same time as dropping all this weight. As soon as I reach my goal, I'll put a before and after up I'm sure.

      Wish me luck!

      Finally finished the game's story. What a fucking disappointment. Seriously, I hope Gears 3 is badass since I'm trading this in towards my preorder for it later today.

      Vacation...

      Mexico is in just a couple days. Leaving Thursday morning to get fucking sunburnt and toasted on martinis and vodka. That's what they drink there, right?


      Anyways, pictures to follow. And maybe some videos.

      It's all good.

      I have a buddy that is wanting to do the same thing. I'll let you know when he's up for it, too.

      You really should. It's always so much fun. Especially when you stay at the hotel the show is at and that hotel has a bar. smiley0.gif

      Yeah, I'm not much of a fan either but I had a great time. I'm a people watcher anyways so it was interesting to be at a social event with people I'm don't normally associate with.

      It's the most epic game I've ever played.

      Literally.

      And a cut-throat defense is what the Bears are all about. Maybe Lovie was trying to get away from that. Poor place to start. I'll hope for the best come August.

      I'm not really a Bears fan or anything but I do feel that I want to see them do well. I think it's just proximity.

      I know Lovie's supposed to be a nice guy, but I can't believe that he would intentionally lose the freaking Super Bowl out of respect for a mentor. I mean, it's the Super Bowl!

      Really though, I thought Lovie'd be gone by now. The Bears are supposed to be one of the better teams. They are supposed to make other teams nervous and they aren't really getting that done. And like you said, it's not the players.

      I agree. I gotta admit I expected the same outcome but I also expected a better game. Do you have a theory as to why Lovie would do that?
