I guess I can explain the last blog entry

If anyone lives in the Monterey peninsula and plays a respectable Bass, and wants to be an X-15, the position is open. I think I can count on one hand the Bassists that appear to be available.

I hope everyone has a fun Halloween, take it for what it is. If you have cats, please keep them in the house between now and November 1st. I guess I can do my usual Halloween Rant about how schools encourage Satanic behavior at this time of the year, but don't you dare wear a Cross or Star of David around your neck. And remember it's Winter Holidays, not Christmas. But little Johnny looks so cute in his Devil costume doesn't he?

Enough, it's getting old. The hypocrisy of the left is like a tumor. Why does free speech only apply to anarchist (or anti-Christs) to be more specific.

Ace out.........

I've never missed you so much in my life. The maiden voyage of the X-15 last Friday was quite possibly the one show you would want to miss as an X-15 fan. We need to fine tune a few things like a musician. So If you're a bass player in the Monterey area, please send me your CV.

Preparing for 1st real gig in 4 years?

I've done a solo performance ealier this year, but the last time I played a G.I.G was sometime in early 2004 in Portland Or.

The last time I had to hump PA crap was around October 2003. I did it for the first time earlier today. It sure sucks. Yep. But the X-15s are going to tear Monterey a new one tonight. The whole vision of this band is to bring back the summer of love in some listenable fashion. Everybody likes my version of California Dreamin' so I decided to try and do it with a whole set of songs from the mid to late 60s.

If you're in or around the Monterey Bay, come to Jose's on Cannerey row and check it out.

Yep, inspite of my greatest desires; I'm back to the bars. I'm predicting a fun evening for all, but you can never get the bad things out of your mind. My greatest annoyance is when that same faceless girl who's barely 21 comes up to me and says: "Do you guys know Brickhouse?"

Now if Vincent VanGough came over to your house to paint a special canvas painting for you, (a VanGough damn it) how do you think he would feel if you said to him:"uh by the way bro, do you think you could touch up the trim behind my toilet bowel?

I mean, I know the customer is suppose to be right, but come on; you're playing originals and KINKS covers and she wants to hear "BRICK FUCKING HOUSE" And if it's not Brickhouse it's "MUSTANG SALLY". This is what drives musicians away from playing in bars. I mean, I don't go over to my Jewish friends house for dinner and say "Ya guys know how to fix stuffed Pork chops"?

And then there's the over zealous police that survey the cars in the parking lot. Of course my van is always the easiest to notice since it's probably been there for 8 hours. (ya, usually from 7pm to 3am, like a real J.O.B.) So I get followed a mile from the bar. Drinking at the gig is totally out of the question. And who the hell can pass a physical sobriety test (hold this, count this many, touch that etc....)at 3:30 in the morning?

Ah now you know why musicians that make it big are so damn decadent in hotels. You just show up for a sound check. play your set, then slam down a shot of tequila in the back of a limo on the way to the hotel.

Until then it's complete sobriety while you're trying to get your money from the club manager. It's a great way to make a living ya know?

Ace out.

America's Silent Killer

It's not Heart attack. It's not High Blood Pressure. It's not Cholesterol. What is it?

PORN. Your kids will use the term pron. But since the advent of the world wide web, the Porn industry has grown from about a 500,000 a year industry to a 10 Billion dollar industy. Let me see if I can get my commas correct: 10,000,000,000.00
That's as big as the entertainment as a whole. That's more than we spend as a whole on food, clothing and Movies/CDs.

And it's grown from those cheap Ron Jeremy movies of the 80's to even cheaper MPEGS.

One of the reasons I'm encouraged to fight against the porn industry is NOT just to preserve what morals our country still has; but this industry is what causes muslims to want to see us dead. It's not that their jealous of us and our abilities to drive Humvees. Their sick of what a nation of corruption we've become. We're the fattest nation in the world and by biblical standards, the most twisted sexually.

And it's not the makers that are totally to blame. The people that send in there credit cards are fueling this industry. Even when it was a 500,000 dollar industry it kept a moral man moral. But with a click on the wrong email you could be viewing porn right in the privacy of your own home. And it's one of the strongest addictions known to man. And the Forbes 500 companies like Time Warner understand this and are fueling the fire.

I can't give you the rate of Rape cases nation wide, but in the northwest, mostly Oregon, the incident of Rape state wide went from about 40 reported cases a year to 460 after the year 2000. Of cours 1998 is the year the computer evolved into everones houshold and pushed the TV aside.

I'm urging everyone to write congress and ask them to legislate porn on the internet. Please. I'm tired of having my website or myspace site hacked.

Blog this, Freinds that, Text this, Gimme a break

What has happened in the last 2 years? It's pretty easy to see the inventors and the copycats. First it was blogging. And I felt blogging was a great way to journal without having to actually use a pen and paper. The problem is I'm way toooo honest on my blogs. But when started making it easy for people to blog, and get paid for ads, everybody offered a blog mechanism.

Then what would life be like without I use to have friends that I actually knew? Now I have almost 2000 friends. I wish they would all send me a dollar a month. Is that a lot to ask from a "friend"? Now everybody is trying to come up with some kind of server that allows you to have friends. my goodness, Youtube isn't satified just having people upload their videos, but you've got You tube friends AND blogs for the videos.

With all my friends and blogging; who's got time for anything anymore?

And is there anything left on the world wide web that isn't owned by Google? I really wish they'd stop buying servers. I'm really tired of changing passwords.
