Journey Back East March 2016 Part 2

After a very long 48 hours travelling from Las Vegas via plane to JFK in New York, to Grand Central by shuttle buss, to Tuckahoe by train, to Yonkers on foot, and finally to Mt Pocono in Pennsylvania by van I was ready for a good night’s sleep! I grabbed a few things from town to get me through the morning like coffee and some chow and I colapsed in my bed for a few hours… only to be awoken really early by the septic guy that was coming that day who was about an hour early. Yay me. A nightmare start to what would turn into an extended stay and two dumpsters worth of crap being disposed of.  Continue reading Journey Back East March 2016 Part 2

Journey Back East March 2016 Part 1

I’ve owned a nice little house in the Poconos back in Pennsylvania since around 1998. It’s a 5 bedroom mother daughter layout house, a little under 2000 sq ft, tucked away on a 3/4 acre lot in Mt. Pocono. I had been renting the downstairs half of the house to an old couple that just sat around drinking all day collecting whatever they collected from whatever. I booted them after a bunch of late, light payments a few years ago. The house sat empty for years until I went there last year (2015) to grab a few things and pit stop on the way to Las Vegas. I was appalled at the disgusting mess my tenants left and knew I’d eventually have to deal with it. It has now been one year almost exactly and time to return, clear it out and try to liquidate the property.  Continue reading Journey Back East March 2016 Part 1

Mortician imagery ripped off again but with a twist this time…

This. This is what it all comes down to. You work hard in a rewardless scene for decades making little to no money, bootlegged to no end, copied and poorly replicated by many for it to come down to this. I can handle all of that. It’s the nature of “influence” in the music scene, we play what we like and listen to. But THIS is friggin’ horseshit. Fashion company Avalone premiered their new  Fall/Winter Collection of Dark sportswear inspired by ’90s death metal bands. Anyone notice any similarities here? Pricks…  Continue reading Mortician imagery ripped off again but with a twist this time…

Lucky Day at The Orleans in Las Vegas, NV

Let’s dip into the mentality of the compulsive gambler for a moment shall we. Just kidding, sort of. Now I’m not a hardcore gambler per se, but I’ll play some comp dollars and a few of my own once a week. For me and my lady it’s our weekly Thursday or Friday daytime date. Nothing beats free money, free buffets (or buy one get one at least), and the potential to walk away with a few hundred. The key there is walk away 😉  Continue reading Lucky Day at The Orleans in Las Vegas, NV

This is why I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada

There’s many reasons we moved to Las Vegas, NV in 2015 from Highland, NY. Besides the obvious allure of the casino scene this is the first winter EVER that I didn’t need a winter coat much less a shovel! My back thanks me not to mention I wouldn’t be able to shovel anyway after that jerk smashed into us at a red light last year. My shoveling days are thankfully involuntarily behind me.  Continue reading This is why I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada

Same old story

Well, I didn’t write a post yesterday, breaking my streak of 2 days in a row of posting but I did get the old posts from the old website back up here so that’s something.

I really have never been a “regular” consistent guy at anything besides my normal day to day ticks that keep me from going full-on “Falling Down” on everyone. Don’t get that reference? Shame on you!  While going through the old posts I realize that one thing is actually consistent in my life and that is in fact my inconsistency. Ironic isn’t it? Continue reading Same old story
