There’s a fine line between discipline and militancy

(Subscribe to my YouTube channel–there you will see me going heavy duty in setting up my new studio for a…well…I’m getting closer to a new podcast with each passing day. Including a whole new microphone/equipment set up. Let’s just say I’m in deep). Ok-here’s the post: As you know I’ve

Change Up.

First a quick thanks for the recent podcast donations I’ve received. Some new-ish listeners who started with older episodes (btw, ALL 222 episodes are on my site, and the most recent 50 are on iTunes) are just now getting the news that I shut down the show. So, in came a

Ah, push it.

Not sure who actually wrote “Ah, push it.” I mean, was it Salt, or Pepa, or a joint effort? Sure, it’s neither here nor there, but I’d kinda like to know, since I’m using that bit of wisdom for this post. I’d also like to add that I’ve always appreciated

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE

No, the title is not a Star Trek reference. This post is about a modern-world reality that is bringing us down. Side-note: I am officially on a social media vacation. Not posting on Twitter (I no longer have a Twitter account, so that’s a permanent vacation), Facebook, or Instagram. Why

I am feeling a bit restless. Here’s what about: My work and, well, social media…mostly frickin’ social media. Here’s why, and yes, I know what I’m about to write makes me sound a tad old. During my song writing/recording days, music was about albums. How the songs flowed together as
