WordPress Updates


ive noticed recently as I have come to my WordPress account that it has been changing constantly. Of course I am not complaining. The Dashboard seems to have a new look. Same layout just a newer cleaner style. Im diggin it. Ive been on here quite a bit just haven’t actually posted lately. Right now I decided to throw a blog or two up before I get some sleep. Sitting in the bus outside Moda Center in Portland for todays show. Tonight after this show we are off to Tacoma and then a nice five days off to make our way out to Fargo ND. Basically here is the last of the USA leg. Then we are off for a nice break before heading to New Zealand and Australia.

August 30 Portland, Oregon

August 31 Tacoma, Washington

September 6 Fargo, North Dakota

September 7 & 8 St. Paul, Minnesota

September 12 Greensboro, North Carolina

September 13 Raleigh, North Carolina

September 14 Charlottesville, Virginia

September 19, 20 & 21 Nashville, Tennessee

For those Across the Pond dates we get to enjoy Thanksgiving before heading out through December. Should be fun. I really like NZ and AUS. Thus far ending my run with Taylor Swift. Its been pretty cool. Got this guy named Mark who has driven the bus ive been on many times. So thats one cool thing. Second, only 3 of us on same bus. Its a new bus as well. Shit is furnished nice as hell. Black leather sofas, dark black marble-ish flooring, dark wood grain cabinets and the fucking shower is red! RED!! lol gives meaning to Taylor’s RED Tour eh lol. Its a sweet ride. Slide-outs and master bed in back. Has 4 bunks. We got a stocked bar and the fridge is full of water, Monster and Coke. We got the usual; plasma TVs, WIFI, Satellite. Setup my Netflix account on it. I decided to go back to a streaming only account. Ehh only $8 bucks.

I would have to say that this is quite different from the Katy Perry experience. Its okay though. Its been fun. The only bad thing is that since I have been calling Malibu home now and during that down time we had with KP I was able to attend some Galaxy and Dodgers games. Im gonna miss Kings Night at Dodger Stadium. GRRRRR lol. Its all good though because we will finish this leg of the tour in enough time for me to make it out to Las Vegas for the Kings Frozen Fury Annual Event. Can’t wait. Who wants to go? lol I’d seriously take someone but most of the people I know dont like hockey and dont have the time. Anyways thats it for this blog….

Catch ya on da flipside…

Temporary Story: The Movie, A Must Watch for Adventurous Travelers


In my line of work I travel often. City to city. Planes, trains, automobiles..etc. Fall asleep in one city and wake up in another. So I came across this video about some friends that decided to travel. Originally a trip that was only to be from Alaska to Los Angeles they spent six months on the road traveling the world. Experiencing places most people wouldn’t care to visit. Ill post the video below but just a bit of warning, the video is about 40 minutes long. If you have an adventure bug and have always wanted to see different parts of the world from Alaska to Africa to South America, then you should watch this video. Even if you are not an adventurous fanatic the video is still great and lots of relaxing music. Whats pretty cool about this is some of the views. Ive seen some of the same myself. Especially in the beginning. So take a bit of time out of your day or night and check this video out. These guys filmed over 2TB of footage and spent four months editing this short movie. At about ten hours a day I think that merits a view!

So here is the movie and hopefully you will enjoy. While your at it leave the guys a message. Ok thats about it for now. Was gonna post this yesterday but was at Pechanga Casino and well you know im not going to post shit when im at a fucking casino. I mean i didnt gamble but penny and five cent machines but hell lol. Ok so enjoy the movie. Grab your popcorn and soda and relax

Blog Has New Life….


Please bare with me as I am changing the look of this blog. It was needed after a year. I decided to go with a black theme this time. Simple yet elegant. I really like it.

Of course many of my sidebars were reset so I will be working on getting some of that set again but in the meantime, please bare with me as I get things set back up again.

While your at it, read some of my shit if you haven’t lately lol.

I could post something new but I seriously doubt anyone wants to read about how my Los Angeles Kings are fucking dominating the West. Took out the Nucks in Round 1 winning the series 4-1 and now 2-0 in the series against the St Louis Blues! KINGS!! GO KINGS GO!!

Anyways, travel coming up consists of Toronto, NY and Singapore among other stops.

So yeah bare with me as I transition this page to a new look. Just needed a change. I liked the old theme but i really like this new one better. Its dark and easier on the eyes when reading!! Don’t you agree?

Agree with me damnit! lol just kidding

ok im out for now. Here is a pic to ponder over that I took recently in LA.

In Another Life: The One That Got Away ……


Starting this post I really dont even know what to call it. I was responding to a friends blog and just prompted me to write something for myself. Gosh I hope I dont ramble on. I guess I am so caught up in my work and for my boss because well I enjoy the work and its different from what I was used to for so many years.

Tonight I was playing the song The One That Got Away. I know many people dont like the artist and im quite clear of that with people that read this blog. But really I dont give a fuck. To me music isnt just about the music or the beat. Its also about the lyrics. This song takes me back to my days a high school kid. Where I fell in love so many times and yet was always put aside by every girl I liked because I wasnt thin and muscular. I remember there was this girl named Stacy. I really liked her. I dont know why. She was cute. Pretty blue eyes. I think thats what it was lol. I have a thing for blue and green eyes. (yeah yeah bite me). So I remember this girl and I had been quite good friends. We hung out alot outside of school. Later I found out it was mostly because she liked my friend Jay. I remember I used to have my own phone in my room. I thought I was some GQ mother fucker because I had a phone in my room. God that was sooooo long ago and I can tell you the phone number too……232-2977 LOL. sad eh!! I had this cheesy Radio Shack phone but that fucking thing worked. I remember sitting on that son of a bitch all night talking to a few girls. Like I said, I couldnt get dates but I had plenty of female friends. So anyways, Stacy had said to come over to her house. She knew I played guitar and well she asked me if I knew how to play Right Here Waiting by Richard Marx. I was like….of course thats easy. So I walked over to her house one weekend night around 10pm or so. We sat on her grass and talked and just enjoyed the cool evening. Then she asked me to play the song. So i did. I even sang that mother fucker! lol I swear to you my voice isnt the same anymore. Im more of a metal singer now lol. Anyways she liked it and so did her sister who came out and heard me playing it. lol Her sister was about 3-4 years older.

After that night I was kinda confident that maybe she liked me…..Then she met my friend Jay and well I was out of the picture in 2 seconds flat! I remember one night she asked Jay and I to walk to her house. So we did. Then later I saw them kiss. You know that feeling when you really like someone and you find out they dont feel the same way for you? Yeah thats how I felt and it hurt bad. It was really the first time I had felt such pain. I just walked away and let them be. I knew she liked him and well he just wanted to get laid. Its kinda funny because he went out with her like twice and never even did anything with her. She later found out she didnt like him as much. Still though I was hung up on her. We never talked anymore. That same night that I walked away I went home and I cried. Not alot but I did cry. My parents werent home. dont know where they were but they wasnt hoome that weekend so I went into my room, turned on the tv and cried. I curled up into a ball on my bed and cried myself to sleep. I woke and was still upset. I took my guitar and I was so mad I threw it on the floor snapping the neck. I didnt care. I was hurt. I tore all my posters off my wall and I thought of cutting my wrists. All over a girl. WOW!!!

I later recovered from that horrific event lol and in my junior year of high school Stacy and I became friends again on a more appropriate level. See we rode the same bus, lived not far from one another and had two classes together. I think I just grew up and realized I didnt need to be a dork. I was the class nerd when it came to computers. I even helped her with compputer shit. About a year ago being curious and looking up people from high school I found her. So i figured I would drop her a simple message. All I said was…..Hey Stacy, Its Gill from back in high school. I just signed up for facebook and found you among all the others from our school. Just wanted to say hi and I hope you are doing well in life after all these years. Take care….pretty much that was it. Two days later she messaged me back and we chatted back and forth a few times. I never asked her to add me as a friend nor did she ask me to add her. I just left it at that. Finding out that she was doing well was a closing in that chapter of my wild crazy life. I knew she was doing well and that was end of story!

Now your probably wondering why I mentioned the song at the beginning of this post. Here is why. The lyrics of the song sort of remind me of a fantasy or a dream. She says: “in another life I would be your girl….” My interpretation of that is as if not her but a female in general saying that to a guy. That we cant be together but we can be friends but maybe in another life we could be together. Sort of reincarnation. Could happen. But the interpretation of that is a nice thought when you love someone and they dont love you back the same way. She then says…..”in another life I could make you stay”……sort of like me being the guy where maybe I didnt like the way things were going and I decided to get up and leave and she wanted me to stay. Where you wish that you could make someone stay a part of your life but they just cant or wont. It all comes down to a fantasy where you dream of the pefrect love that many of us feel we never will get. She ends the verse with “so I dont have to say you were the one that got away….” Maybe the song was written in a female context saying to a man but even as a man I hate to say about a woman that she is the one that got away. I know that feeling all too well.

An exgirlfriend reads this blog from time to time and she is a good friend but thats all we really amounted to. I think in the beginning we really liked one another but we didnt have much in common besides sex or lust I should say. I look at it now and we do have somethings in common but its not just that. I also have insecurities and moods. Things that some people just cant deal with. I’d like to say I still love her the way I once did but to be honest my feelings have changed. Yes I still love her but its different now and i’d always want her to be safe and in a good relaltionship. Sadly I cant be that person but I can accept that. In life we have to accept that people come and go and some become a part of our lives not to be our partnet but to change us. Thus I believe this is why she came into mine.

As I sit here for a moment and read that last paragraph its hard to read it because although I never thought I would write those thoughts I think she knows these thoughts already. Because in Katy’s song it is a fantasy because as much as we would like to make someone stay we cant always make that happen. The song tells a story. In many ways I imagined my life turning out like that song. Falling in love, getting matching tattoos and going from there lol. the closest im getting to matching tattoos is Katy’s peppermint on my wrist very soon. lol. Still the song on the album is different. The feel is more upbeat. Take the acoustic version without all the drums and effects and just a clean acoustic guitar and you get a beautiful piece of music. It makes you wonder about your life and where you have been over all the years. For me it takes me back to high school and after and past relationships and into my current life. Many of my friends say I have the hottest boss lol. Sure I have a crush on her. Who wouldnt. But that song reminds me of my past and even leads me into my future. At 36 I really cant see myself having a wife and kids now because I am too old. Ive grown accustomed to catering to myself and I have gotten greedy with my time. I’d rather just be with someone and not have to worry about kids….well my cats are my kids….SchmuckTheCat, HeathcliffTheCat, BuckyTheCat, GarfieldTheCat, Mia Von Meow The Cat…etc….yeah yeah i have alot of cats. When you come home to no one there those cats are a welcoming amount of joy. From their meow meow meows for whiskas to their lazy asses all over the bed. lol. They are my critters.

I dont really know what else to say. The One That Got Away is a beautifully constructed song that makes you think about your past and your future. Maybe you wont see it that way but then again I decipher music differently because I am an artist/musician. I write music and play it. People that dont play it cant really understand the spectrum of feelings a song can give you because you dont feel the song entirely. You enjoy it…jam it…but you cant really feel it 100%. Its become one of my favorite songs to play acoustically. Ive been asked to do a video of it so I probably will. We shall see. So I guess by now I have decided to use a title for this post that I figure is fitting….so anyways, ill add some kind of pic below and hope you enjoyed reading this. Got the Nick Kids Choice Awards this weekend and then I leave for India. So Ill definitely be away. I’d also like to personally thank very much my friend Denis who comes here to read my blogs often. Sometimes I never know who reads because I get no respoonses except from him. Even if he didnt respond I would still post. But I truly thank you Denis for taking time out of your day to come here and read my thoughts. I greatly appreciate it! Much respect bro!

for now I bid you all farewell and I hope to post something again soon. I really need to get my stanky ass up in da shower and get some shut eye. oh wait i still need to see New Girl again lol. ok sleep will have to wait.

Carpe Diem friends!

Music is a beautiful thing

American Beauty: A Story from 2000


I remember the first time i saw this movie in a hotel room i think it was in East Liverpool Ohio. We had a show a few nights later at Post Gazette Pavilion and I had taken a day to relax and be closer to some friends that live in West Virginia. They was after all inviting me to go eat at DeeJay’s Ribs!!! MMMMMMM such a great place for them ribs!!! lol

Here is the link to this joint!

Here is the link to the hotel I stayed at….
http://www.elmotorlodge.com/
and….
http://www.hotelplanner.com/Hotels/128123/Reservations-East-Liverpool-Motor-Lodge-East-Liverpool-2340-Dresden-Ave-43920 PICTURES!

Anyways, I remember after eating at this place I went back to my hotel room. I have pics but I would have to scan them as this was waaaaay back in the early Slipknot days where digital cameras were not even a popular thing for consumers. Well I didnt have one! lol. Actually I had this thing called the Aiptek PenCam. It was this cheap cheesy little camera like you see being sold in Wal-Marts and dollar stores today. You pressed one button on top to take a pic and then USB it to computer to transfer pics. lol. Ok ok so back to the story. I had plenty of ribs, fries and something else left over so I brought it back to my room. Late night snack you know!! The room was cheesy but comfy. Ever seen the old movie Planes, Trains & Automobiles with John Candy and Martin Short? Well, it is one of my favorite movies especially since John Candy has passed on. He made such great 80s/90s movies. Well in that movie they stayed at a placed called the Braidwood Inn. Well, East Liverpool Motor Lodge was quite similar except this could have been a place to get it on lol. The carpet and sheets were an unromantic red. Good thing I had no female company eh? LOL. So I remember I got out of my clothes. It was quite cold by this time up there. I think it got down to the 30s or so BUT you know I had to turn on the AC unit. I remember I stripped naked, not that any of you really care to know lol and hopped in the shower. Nice warm/cold shower to relax the muscles and prepare to chill the hell out.

Time had gone by pretty fast that night. Then I turned the TV on to see what was on. Free HBO and Skinemax in the room was A ok with me. By this time about 3 hours had passed and it was around 11pm. Of course I was hungry and thirsty so I headed over to the soda machine to grab a few Cokes and some ice. No microwaves in the room that I can recall. Maybe now there are but back then…..Nope. So i decided what the hell, I tore open the to go box and finished what I had left of those ribs and fries. MMMMMMMMM they were soooo good and the sauce was great too. Anyways, I had been fumbling around on the TV looking for something to watch. Then I switched over to HBO and caught the endng credits to some movie and decided to wait and see what was on next. Remember back in the days when HBO would send you those little square programming guides in your cable bill? lol I do! As a teen I always kept it in my room because I was a movie whore back then.

So I discovered that American Beauty was on next. I had heard about this movie quite a bit but never had seen it. Kevin Spacey who plays Lester Burnham always reminded me in some ways of Neil Peart from Rush. LOL. He kinds looks like him. Maybe its the nose!! haha. So I let the movie play and was hooked on it quite quick. I guess because of the storyline. Man discovers he hates his current life at home, his job and his wife could care less about him. Not to mention his daughter was a typical teenager detached from her parents. Thats now what caught my attention though. What caught my attention was how Lester began to change. He started talking back to his wife Carolyn played by Annette Benning. They got into huge arguements and he always allowed himself to come out victorious. Like when he told his boss he wanted a year severance pay or he would tell rival companies about how an employee was buying pussy with company money or that he would blackmail his new current boss. His boss told him…”you are one twisted fuck!” Love that scene. Then there is the part where he is masterbating in bed because its clear his wife wont give him any pussy. She wakes up and catches him chokin his chicken….sayin hi to his monster as he says….lol. He gets her attention by saying that he notices how she has made it quite apparent how unimportant she makes him to be. She then later has an affair with the Real Estate King LOL. One scene shows her getting fucked by the King and she yells out, “fuck me your majesty.” lol too funny. Then there is the scene where Lester decided to get a mediocre job at Smiley Burger for shits and giggles. He then later sees his wife at the drive-thru while the King is kissing his wife all over in her Mercedes SUV. He says “would you like to try our new beef and cheese pot pie on a stick only $1.99 for a limited time only.” lol She then tries to make up for this and he says, “No….you dont get to tell me what to do…..ever….again.” LOVE THIS part!

So by this time im really diggin this movie. Ive finished my ribs and fries and downed one Coke and im now on the next. I got 3. Im glued to the fucking TV watching this. You just have to really watch the movie if you have never seen it to see all the cool parts. I do love the line when he buys the car of his dreams and says…..”I RULE.” Total anarchy from him. He realizes he was living this shit life catering to his wife and never really did anything for himself. Your probably wondering why I haven’t mentioned how he has this infatuation with his daughters best friend. His daughter was played by Thora Birch and her friend by Mena Suvari. Well to be quite honest that part of the movie isnt what interested me at all. It was Lester’s attitude. So fuck the part about the infatuation. Lester also got so sick of shit he started smoking weed. Earlier in the movie there is a scene where he says to the neighbor boy, “your my new hero.” This because the kid quit his job just like that and told his boss “so dont pay me, i quit.” Good lil scene there too. Getting down to the end of the movie was really interesting. I loved the scene where he and his wife are arguing at the dinner table while shitty Lawrence Welk music is playing and he says angrily, “will someone please pass me the fucking asparagus.” Then he eventually throws it against the wall to shut his wife up. Now his frustration has come out full. The crazy part about it is that all he really wanted was a normal life with a loving wife and daughter but he was far from that. In one line in the car he tells his wife that their daughter hates him. He then tells her that she hates her too. Making them both quite for a moment.

So this brings me to the end of the movie. Lester is tempted by the ugly girl. Yes I think Mena is ugly but oh well. Lol. She gets down to topless on the sofa with Lester and then admits that she has never “done it.” Throughout the movie she talks about how she has fucked so many guys and photographers as she was an aspiring model. Lester stops and later it breaks to him making her a sandwich and a drink in the kitchen. She and Lester’s daughter had a huge fallout about Jane’s(daughter) boyfriend. So Angela(the girl Mena plays) says she needs to go to the bathroom where Lester is left alone in the kitchen. He picks up a picture of his family. Happier times with his wife and daughter. He sits down and thinks about those times. Remembering those good days. He says, “man o man o man….” Then the camera pans away from him as he lowers the picture and a gunshot is heard and blood splatters on the kitchen wall which is white…well red now! So let me get to this. Just moments earlier Lester was out in the garage working out and smoking a joint and its raining real hard. The boy next doors(his daughter Jane’s boyfriend) father is seen standing in front of the garage door soaked. Lester lets him in. He tells the father he would go get his son for him. The father was this deranged Colonel in the Marine Corps who hated gays yet I think in the movie he was a closet gay. He later kisses Lester and Lester tells him that he must have mistaken him. There are scenes that lead up to the gay thoughts….you just have to watch the movie or you know what im talking about if you have seen it. So the father walks away slowly in the rain and Lester goes back in the house. This is where he sees Angela. So anyways. Lester has just been shot in the head from behind. The boyfriends father killed him with one of his pistols. Looks like a military issue 9M. What do I know though im no gun nut.

So now comes my favorite part of the movie. After all that Lester went through he monologues the end of the movie. In the beginning he monologued about himself. Here is a quote from the beginning of the movie taken from IMDB….

My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood. This is my street. This is my life. I’m 42 years old. In less than a year, I’ll be dead. Of course, I don’t know that yet, and in a way, I’m dead already. Look at me, jerking off in the shower. This will be the high point of my day. It’s all downhill from here. That’s my wife Carolyn. See the way the handle on those pruning shears matches her gardening clogs? That’s not an accident. That’s our next door neighbor, Jim, and that’s his lover, Jim. Man, I get exhausted just watching her. She wasn’t always like this. She used to be happy. We used to be happy. My daughter, Jane. Only child. Janie’s a pretty typical teenager. Angry, insecure, confused. I wish I could tell her that’s all going to pass, but I don’t want to lie to her. Both my wife and daughter think I’m this gigantic loser. And they’re right. I have lost something. I’m not exactly sure what, but I know I didn’t always feel this sedated. But you know what? It’s never too late to get it back.

In many ways I always felt like a loser yet ive never been married or a father…except to my cats. lol. So from the monologue here you can see why this movie became something I would enjoy. A man that took charge and said something about how he felt. Of course im not dead….yet…..So que the end monologue from the movie. As Lester is dead the camera shows different views of how his daughter and her boyfriend heard the gunshot and got shocked. Then Angela….Then his wife….He saw visions of his childhood and memorable people like his grandmother. He saw visions of his daughter and his wife in happier times. Then the camera shows his daughter in disbelief that her father is dead and his wife enters the bedroom and into his closet where his clothes are hanging and she grabs them and begins to cry. Its over now. Lester is dead. Nothing changes that. Still in his monologue he mentions points about life. Not taking things for granted. Enjoying it…..so to speak….Its one of my favorite quotes to a movie. So without further adieu here is my favorite lines from Lester Burnham…….The ending monologue……

” I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined my street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday. “…..Lester Burnham…

For me I say this is true. It does stretch on forever like an ocean of time. I guess as ive gotten older at 36 now I tend to see more of my childhood in my dreams. I remember things again. I remember what I did and it seems like yesterday. Seeing my grandparents and my grandfather when he was alive. My other grandmother when she was alive. Never got to see my fathers father, my grandfather. He died before I was born. Yet I have been seeing these visions. I guess its father time catching up with us as we age. I see the times I spent on the road with the bands. I see myself sitting in the chair the day I got my first tattoo and I see myself the day I fell in love with a girl named Amy. Yet all those are in the past. Life has moved on and im supposed to keep living and making new memories. I remember one day sitting in the back of my friend Andy’s truck at my house in Sugar Land TX. We had been getting drunk as usual right after high school and we was laying there looking into the sky imagining where we would be when we was 30. Would we be married to the women of our dreams and have kids? Would be be friends still? Would be even be alive? Now at 36 I sit back and I remember those times like they were yesterday.

For years after my parents divorced I never really felt like I had a home for awhile. Then home in Sugar Land was home yet I knew that one day it wouldnt be. I remember leaving Sugar Land and then never really feeling that I had a real home. I was always blinded by such good things in my life by letting them all slip away. Now im just working at trying to keep everything going now. Being happy and enjoying life. In the end…thats all Lester wanted in the movie…to be happy. In the end for me…thats all I want….to be happy. Ive pretty much decided that I wont have any biological children of my own. At 36 most girls have kids already and wont even consider having anymore by the time they meet Mr Right….yeah thats me! lol. Im not perfect. I bitch, I have arrogance and I do like to be perfect. I grew up being that way. I always seek perfection. Not in others but in what I do. I dont accept 2nd best but Ive been 2nd best to everyone that I loved in life. I cant let that happen. There is nothing wrong with being with a man or woman that has kids if you truly love that person you will love their kids too and if they dont want to have kids with you because they are done….then so be it. Enjoy life and grow as a family. Adopt the kids or something.

Lester says its hard to be mad when there is so much beauty in the world. There is. Its the shitty greedy people that make this world so bad. Thats why I enjoy travel because I can be pissed at the world but sitting in the Swiss Alps at Furka Pass or Grimsel Pass and looking down and seeing the road I was just on and the mountains……its breathtaking. Life is meant to be lived and loved not stressed over but sadly we really cant get past that. Life will be stressful but sometimes we have to take a step back and realize that there is much more to love and people although have their differences two must become one and face their problems together or that unity wont ever work. This reminds me of a quote I love from Nitzsche.

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Live and enjoy life and remember when life gets tough, stand up for yourself but dont let things slip away from you. Isn’t odd how someone can care so much for a car like it is their lover. They wash it……clean it….do maintenance on it….yet when it comes to loving a woman or man, most people just let it all slip away and take it for granted. If you love something that you feel is slipping away you try to keep it from going but sometimes sacrifice is the scariest and worst thing we can do. We can love people and possessions but sometimes if you really love it you must let it go……

Thanks for reading!

Gill

The End Has Come


Many know that for years I have worked for bands. Few weeks ago I made my last trip ever. We went to Rio for Rock in Rio 2011. It was awesome. Had shows on 23rd and 25th. Met Katy Perry on 23rd. She is sooooo cool.

So now I really don’t what else I will be doing. I guess enjoying life and shit. Skydiving, traveling and what not. A friend of mine is getting married next August in Pittsburgh so ill probably head up there for the social event of the season…..NOT lol.

I spend my time these days relaxing and listening to SirusXM radio. Yeah Playboy and Spice radio lol. Its just great not to mention funny some of the stuff they talk about. One can only take so much of nothing before it gets boring so im sure I will find something else to do that will keep me busy.

For now, I am going to enjoy the upcoming holidays and the cooler weather. Im feeling back in my element now. Its getting cooler and NHL season has finally begun. Yes GO LA Kings! lol. and as always I cant wait til Xmas Eve when they will show my fav holiday movie all day…..yep A Christmas Story with Ralphie! lol.

The most shocking thing I heard lately was the death of Apple giant Steve Jobs. Didn’t see that coming. Of course though Apple will not suffer from this loss. True the market is shitty right now. Believe me, my Forex trading isn’t very profitable lately either! lol. A new product out for them in a week will bring much revenue. In fact many tech companies will be profiting from the holiday sales very soon. Still though, shocking on the death of Steve Jobs. Even though Bill Gates is no longer in charge at Microsoft and now Steve gone, the world of computer technology won’t be the same.

So for now I say peace out. Sorry for the lack of posts over the last month or so. I will be back with more in the coming week! ooooooh I just saw a yummy lasagna on the tv….shit im hungry now. lol. Ok I bid you all well for now until next time!
