Of course I’ll be referring to the underground death metal scene as that’s the dysfunctional family of mutants I’ve been a part of most my life. I can’t comment on what it’s like being an underground blues artist or what one of those “subway” bands goes through but hey those guys are either in genres that are much more popular or have passers by at least throwing them some dollars or at least some appreciation.

I’ll start with the fact that I did not read the books. That being said I really enjoyed this movie a whole lot! Continue reading The Dark Tower
No flying cars yet huh? OK. No anti aging pill? Alright. Teleporters anyone? No… no teleporters either. The powers that be have however managed to succeed in making a proper Star Wars movie on par with the original trilogy. Rogue One is that movie and I can be thankful we at least have that 😉 Continue reading Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Ugh! It’s been forever since I posted on my own site. Not even sure why I post in spurts here. Probably the same reason I have a half dozen musical projects in various stages of completion. There’s just too many things I’m interested in. I bet this is a common problem in today’s world. Continue reading Time is stupid.
The metal scene will always remain underground because of the large amount of people in the scene that act like trying to lay new music on them is some fucking shitty thing to do. Fucking weird to me to see post after post on social media hating the idea of someone trying to share their tunes. Some people even have a sort of public statement on their profile telling bands they will be ignored. Man that’s weird to me. Continue reading The underground metal scene will probably stay that way…
Yup, I did that thing where I get into too many things at once, buy a bunch of shit and then have no time to even open some of it. This sucks! Why can’t there be 50 hours in a day? I really need that “no sleep” pill to be invented already. All this crap and no time to use half of it. This is stupid. Or is it? No, it most certainly is, I’m just trying to throw some fake positive spin on it. Continue reading There’s just too many things
So, I sometimes neglect music. I’m either busy, locked into some weird Joe Rogan podcast marathon, stuck in an X-Files vortex (have you seen the new HD versions of the originals? Oh man!!!), or worse in the car but have to pay attention to the GPS or something. Today… today I played the most random collection of tunes and quenched some music thirst that I’ve been depriving myself of for a couple weeks (in Roger terms that might be a month or two)… Continue reading I listened to a lot of songs today… for once!
Continuing right along with my portable A/V recording rig quest, I have gotten over my imported mini-cam fetish and just bit the financial bullet and am going with much higher quality DSLRs for the whole rig. Also I’m thinking about some redesigns for the box. I’m planning on investing in a CNC machine for another venture but I don’t think the time is there for me to order it, build it, learn it, and produce any quality work in time to cut up the box with it before the Las Vegas Deathfest so no fancy routing for the moment. Decisions, decisions… budgets, budgets… going way over budget… you get the idea. Come on, let’s go have fun and figure it out.
