I'm signing in again because I'm bored out of my mind.
I'm sitting here in public relations.
I've got nothing better to do.
Maybe I will update this more than I have in the past.
I've got nothing better to do anymore.
Anyway. I'll post more in a little bit.


It's been a long time... / Gear List!

Wow, It's been a long time. I almost forgot I had this. But I didn't. ?????
Whatever. I'm waiting for my car to be serviced so I figured that I'd post something.
I had some weird dreams last night, but that's nothing out of the ordinary.
Here's some updates:
I'm in a band. I play Bass/Guitar/Synths and do some vocals.
I bought an awesome bass amp used on craigslist for $400. It's an Ampeg B4R head with an Ampeg SVT-610HLF cabinet. Yup, I got both for the sum total of $400. Sweet, huh? It sounds amazing. And they are both USA made. Which is awesome because Ampeg is now made in Asia.
I also got a new bass. I bought a Fender Mustang Bass in Vintage White. It looks really awesome and sounds really nice. It's a short scale bass, which is better for me since I have short but stubby fingers. My hands are too stubby for leads on a guitar and too short to really play a regular scale bass comfortably, so the short-scale Mustang Bass is perfect for me.
And I also have a self-modified Electro-Harmonix Russian Big Muff Pi distortion pedal that is absolutely amazing. It's my secret weapon.
I might as well just list the rest of my gear now, since I've nothing better to do.
I also have an Electro-Harmonix Small Clone chorus pedal, an Electro-Harmonix USA Big Muff Pi distortion pedal, a Boss DS-1 distortion, a Boss DD-3 digital delay, a Cry Baby wah pedal and I think that's it for the Pedals.
My guitar is a Squier Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde (though it's more orange than blonde so I call it "Strawberry Blonde") with a rails-style pickup in the bridge.
My guitar amp is a limited edition (one of only 750 made), Vox Pathfinder P15SMR408 15-watt Mini-Stack with the 4x8" cabinet. I love the hell out of that amp. And I bought it for a steal at a pawn shop. I got it for something like $125. That's highway robbery. I've seen those things sell for double that.
I also have some other basses. I have a Squier Bronco that I'm going to turn into a Mustang once I get enough money to buy replacement parts. I also have an SX jazz-bass copy.
I might as well brag about my mics as well.
I have a Sterling Audio ST51 (I think that's what it's called), a Sennheiser e906 and the jewel of my mic collection, a Sennheiser MD-421 (My all-time favorite microphone!).
In terms of synths, I have my Korg MX-1 Electribe (I love this thing!) and a really beat up Roland JX-3P. I also have a new M-AUDIO midi controller I use for Propellerhead Reason.
That's pretty much everything.
I am not going to bore you guys anymore.
If anybody else reading this is a gear head, please comment and maybe we can talk gear.

Back In Black... I guess.

I'm just posting here again to say I haven't forgotten this. I've been busy lately. I will post some poems here a over the course of the week. Stay tuned! Big Happenings!!! :-)

Musing: good friggin' morning

frickin' hell! I get into the radio station and some f***tard completely messed up almost everything. LITERALLY> ALMOST EVERYTHING. Great, at least I got us back on the air and running again. Thank God I know what I'm doing.
Anyway, slept rather well, 9 hours. That's more than I have in a long time. Thank you Heineken Light! (LOL!)
I'll post more later. I've very much to say right now. I much rather be home writing and recording.
I'm feeling kind of depressed. How I'm never going to be with any of the girls of my dreams. NONE. Bloody hell. I wonder if it's going to be like "Donnie Darko", y'know, everylivingcreaturediesalone. I don't know, I just feel like I'm going to die alone. I'm not sure. The devil and god are raging inside of me right now. I'm very depressed. F***ing bipolar disorder. THE SEARCH FOR GOD IS ABSURD IF EVERYONE DIES ALONE. i usually get depressed at night. i do. i rant to my self. drinking doesn't usually help either, but it sure as hell doesn't hurt. i'm a mess right now, I just want to go to bed so I can wake up feeling better tomorrow and I can go and have McDonald's for breakfast. I know. So bad for me and it's not even that good but I like it and it makes me feel good. Plus, it doesn't really matter. I've lost 25 lbs. in the last month just by walking like 1 1/2 miles at a time every single day for the past half-month, all while pretty much eating nothing but mcdonalds for breakfast the whole time. mmm.. sausage mcmuffin. with a hash brown in it. yummmmmm.....
now i'm f***cking losing it. I better go to bed. I'm not even that tired but If I stay away i'll just do my head in even more.
I just wish I could find a nice girl to be with who will love me and not judge me. man how some of my ex-girlfriends were g*ddam hypocrites. sh*t, let me go sleep it off before I say something I'll REALLY regret.
Have a good night everyone. I'll post more tomorrow. Maybe some song lyrics. Who knows...
I'm just posting after listening to some tracks off of my all time favorite album, Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea". If you've never heard of the album or band before, you have no idea what you are missing. In my opinion, "Aeroplane" is the greatest album of all-time. It's heart breaking. It's a CD that is almost guaranteed to make you shed tears. It's truly beautiful. I HIGHLY recommend tracking down a copy and listening to it. It's very much worth every cent.
I remember the first time I listened to the CD> I had bought it and put in my car. After reading it be named indie album of the year for 1998 in Entertainment weekly's "25 years of Indie Rock" list, I was curious, and I had already heard "Song Against Sex" (from NMH first CD) on a Merge Records compilation. I liked what I heard in that song and decided to give "Aeroplane" a shot. I went to borders and bought it. I proceeded to put in my CD player and drive around listening to it. My life has never been the same. It came into my life at a tough time, Rose had just left the Pipettes and I had lost faith in a lot of things. "Aeroplane" really helped me through that tough time not in any one way, but just because I "felt" the album. I "got" it. It was what I was looking for at that exact moment in time. I'm very glad I started listening to NMH.
I think I'm gonna go write some NMH inspired lyrics now. I haven't been inspired in a long time but now I am again...

Poem: "Superman"

This is that poem I wrote about my late friend Anthony. He died of Leukemia last year. I wrote this in memory of him. The reason for the title "Superman", was because that was Anthony's nickname. I'll post more poems and even some song lyrics that I've written either later today or maybe tomorrow (if I have time, I'll be at work most of the day). Let me know what you think of it.


Where did you go?
You’ve gone to Heaven
I definitely know

Why did you leave?
I didn’t say goodbye
I never would have thought
You were going to die

How I wish you were here
You the best friend
Of my 22 years

You welcomed me
With wide open arms
When I arrived
I suffered no harm

I’ll remember you forever
I’ll think of good times always
And the bad times never

You were the best friend
That I ever had
Made high school a joy
Never a time bad

Your memory lives on
It’ll last forever
Even though you are gone

These words are for you
To keep your memory alive
I won’t let that perish
I won’t let that die

Thank you for everything
I can’t thank you enough
For the joy that you did bring

You are the best friend
That anyone could ask for
Thanks for everything Superman
I could never ask for anything more

Good Morning

Good morning,
I'm starting to like this LiveJournal thing because it allows me to just jot down random things that are on my mind really.
I think I might start an account for my Old-Time Radio show and include links to the recordings of my shows once I record them here.
You know what sucks. I had to buy DVD-R's because that what the new replacement SuperDrive on my MacBook will only burn to. The old one burned to anything. The reason this really sucks is because all I had was DVD+R's and the new burner only burns DVD-R's. I mean it's the same thing different day!!! Oh, well. I trust Apple, the know what's best... I hope.
I really wonder... being 22, am I the oldest person on here. :-(
I know my friends when we were in high school used this but I don't anybody who still does except for people who use it for the communities.
Hmm... oh, well, I guess I'm catching up on a lost teenagehood. Man, now that I think about it, I really did miss out on a lot during my teenage years. I spent so much time either sitting around moping and being depressed or just playing my guitar making a God-awful racket that I really didn't do that much. I didn't talk to girls (too shy). Nothing.
But you know what? My last 2 years of high school were 2 of the best years of my life so far. It makes me sad thinking about it, though. Why? Because the person who made those two years the best, my best friend Anthony, is no longer around anymore. One year ago, on May 5, 2007, he passed away from Leukemia. It was really hard on me because I didn't get the chance to say goodbye. I kind of lost touch with him after we left high school, but he was always on my mind. The last I heard from him before he died was that his Leukemia was getting better. Unfortunately it came back stronger than before... I really miss him.
I wrote a poem for him. I'll share it here later. I'll probably end up sharing a bunch of poems here. I don't really have anywhere else to share them, so I might as do it here.
Dammit! I've got to leave in 45 minutes and damn Toast is still only at 21% completed converting the second half of WKRP in Cincinnati season three to DVD.
I think I'll go now. I'm just going to ramble on incoherently otherwise.


Okay, It's 11 o clock at night (or just about). I'm not that tired, but I think i'll retire from here for now. I've got to get up early tomorrow and be at my dad's office at 10am to help him move stuff to his new office. I don't mind, in fact I volunteered to help tomorrow. I'm just stating it as a fact. :-P
darn, I've got "Begin The Begin" by R.E.M. stuck in my head from the "And I Feel Fine" CD> Excellent disc btw< check it out if you are a fan of R.e.m. or want to know how college rock got started.
Anyway. It's late. Have good night everybody out there in cyber world...

No Puppini Sisters community?!?!?!?

I did a search to join a Puppini Sisters group here and there is NONE!!! WTH?????? It's annoying as heck!!!!
Anyway, I'm gonna go update my profile some more. And add Old-Time Radio to my list of interests. Be back either later tonight or tomorrow...
