The Needle And The “Damage” Done

It was probably somewhere around the time Kurt Cobain died when I decided to actually listen to a Neil Young song. As many other artists who I’ve ignored for the longest time (whether for lack of interest, wrong perception, ignorance or all of the above), Neil just “didn’t do it for me”.

Then he goes and writes “Sleeps With Angels“, and because it has to do with someone I was somewhat obsessing with, I decided to give Neil a chance.

It was “Mirror Ball” that did the trick, and like with every musician I suddenly discover, I went back. Way back to the beginning, to fall in love.

Neil Young celebrates 70 and I think it’s high time we pay homage to that man on this here blog.

So, with no further ado Continue reading

All in all is all we are (This world sucks!)

Welcome back folks,

Last time we spoke, I said that this world is hell on earth and other pretty harsh words to that effect. I closed by saying that we’re here to serve a purpose and that if we resist the understandable urge to “check out” early, we may find meaning. I used that word – meaning – because it’s exactly what I want to talk about in this post. Continue reading

Welcome back all. I hope you enjoyed the last post. It was off topic but fun to write and then to listen to. This post is kind of a slide back to writing, although it will be heavily linked to music, which is my other passion. Continue reading

Point Of View

Hello and welcome back to my humble meta-world.
I apologize for the long break since the last post. It’s not that I didn’t have anything to write, quite the opposite… I had tons of writing to do on my novel…Plus I’m still a little sick. And I can throw in a couple of less convincing excuses if you twist my arm 😉 But last night, as I was unable to sleep, I watched the Pearl Jam Twenty movie (It’s on Netflix people! – No excuses not to watch!)

Irony? Life’s twisted sense of humor? Wicked fate? You be the judge…

*** Late edit: I started writing this post before the news about the untimely death of Amy Winehouse. I then had to change the title. ***

Hi everyone and welcome back 🙂 I’m back home now and finally able to get back into my blog. I hope to post often and regularly and be of interest.

Saying that I’m back home implies that I have been elsewhere and that is correct. I spent the better part of July in Seattle, WA. I was working hard and very busy with the work related tasks, but I did have some “spare time”. And what have I done in that time? Read on… Continue reading
