Now when the roses bloom this year and our soul’s up in our ears with some newer music sung in a strange place December 7, 2009 No Comments

It's that time of year for the top 10 albums of the year.  It's been a special year, music has been a best friend, the heart and mind open, the tunes plentiful.  A special nod goes out the to the gal from Colorado who's been my first and foremost filter for new music.  Below, a biased […]

When I was young my mama sat me down and told me how it goes, You’ll walk the world but most of what you’re looking for is under your nose November 16, 2009 No Comments

Today the term Celestial Bureaucrats caught my ear, made me laugh tremendously, so much so that I went out registered the domain name — Interesting concept when taken into account what they actually are, perhaps after watching my 5 DVD set of doing business in China, I'll have a plan…if only i knew Mandarin.   […]

Spend my natural prime, thinking money and time, wondering where they go, and they go November 15, 2009 No Comments

YET ANOTHER pitch for Roman Candle, who's album has SKYROCKETED to perhaps my top 5 of all time.  They're talkin' to me, I'm listening intently and reading what they have to say, just so much to skim off the top.  It's truly like having a conversation with a best friend I haven't seen in a […]

Outside the big red sky is getting dim, shooting pool and talking, making new friends November 7, 2009 No Comments

30 years ago I'd wake up Saturday morning and watch cartoons, 20 years ago I'd wait for wrestling on Saturday night and playing Rygar on Nintendo, 10 years ago I'd be lying in bed nursing a hangover, today I wake up and go to work for 12 hours, coming off a 12 hour day, leaning […]

Fill up these four walls with old melodies, let me know if the big light is shining on me October 9, 2009 No Comments

In the private sector, you get rewarded for on time and under budget, in the public sector, you're rewarded by building an empire.  You NEED more time, you NEED more resources.  Private sector, money is the bottom line, public sector, lives are often the bottom line.  Why the disparity in efficiency?

So, if you sit down heavy with your pen and ink, Or you’re talking to yourself while you’re scrubbing the sink September 22, 2009 No Comments

It's been a long time since I've clung to a band like the past few months with Roman Candle. What makes me gravitate towards them?  Clear, concise lyrics — While reading amazon review I see the album bashed because of the literal nature of the lyrics, and how that tends to get annoying. My response, […]

So we can walk around and we can laugh all night, it’s hard to fit a lot of years in a Friday night, cause there always seems to be something left to say September 13, 2009 No Comments

15 year class reunion next year.  When I was a younger lad I couldn't wrap my head around this sentiment.  I once read that at your 10 year anniversary, you show up in a BMW and say, hey, look how cool and successful I am, at 20 years, you show up in a minivan and […]

But there's one thing I've learned for fact, There's a Music You can Only Hear When You're Starting from Scratch I let the beautiful words of Roman Candle fill my Bose noise cancelling headphones, I get whisked away to what I'm almost sure will be a more elegant time in life. Tonight I think the […]

don’t play neil young, don’t play bob dylan, just let some high school emo rock band start versing and chorusing September 3, 2009 No Comments

Being deployed is much like prison, lots of time for reading and exercise.   My current favorite philosopher / statesman, Cicero of Ancient Rome, considered one of the most versatile minds of the time.   the books for the time, 29% done, 71% to go – Book of Five Rings: The Classic Guide to Strategy […]

beer in my lap, one window down, bird in the tree, kiss on the mouth July 17, 2009 No Comments

Lots of time for introspection in the desert, working the noon to midnight shift, a ritual of mine is hanging out facing the airport over a man made lake, looking at the planes and helicopters flying around. Thinking about history, what always went down in the books was were the civilizations ‘rubbed’, not the Greek […]
