I feel like too many people focus on the negative things in their lives instead of the positives, myself included. Life is overwhelming at times, no doubt, but it also goes on. There will always be negative and positive forces no matter where you go. The choice to subscribe to either party is ultimately yours. Stress and anxiety are perfectly normal, but the important thing is to be aware and recognize when the chips are down. And inversely, to be grateful and appreciate when things aren’t so bad. Life is a big game of hide and seek with happiness. If we always had happiness, we wouldn’t appreciate it nearly as much. Stop waiting for something big to come and sweep you off your feet. The journey is the destination. Live now and love your life. 100 years from now everyone you know will be dead. Look life square in the eye and say “So what?”

I wish I knew what I wanted to do when I was younger (even as little as 3 or 4 years ago) because as it stands I have no idea what the hell I can do or want to do. And fucking a, it is stressful. As it stands I have zero direction. Graduated college with a BS liberal arts degree. Not applicable at all… Now what?
iPhone, why you so frustrating? You inconsistent hunk of junk. I want to beat you with a baseball bat far more often than I ever should.
I feel like apple products are like baby’s first keyboard for phones, computers, and music players, except disguised with slick labels and backed by pop media that get people to think they are the standard. For a “smart” phone, this thing really has a fucking hedge maze for a brain. Stop being all cutesy tootesy and let’s get practical. Fuck.
In other news, hearing that RXB will have a complete horn section for the Resignation tour makes me so fucking happy. Can’t wait for July!
Riders on the Storm by The Doors
Gotta love your man…..
Lemme get a Les Paul already, come on man. I’ll do best Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, and Dickey Betts impression.

When I was in Minnesota two summers ago, I walked into a venue with my friends to help set up for my friend’s his later show and I recognized the song being played. The song was Riders on the Storm and the old glowing man on stage singing it was none other than Ray Manzarek… Talk about surreal. I was in disbelief until he started saying things like “This was Jim’s favorite part… Gotta love your man…” It was the last song of the night too. Talk about a complete coincidence, but man that was cool. So so so sad to hear of his passing. Rest in peace, you beautiful soul. :(
This is so sad. :( :( :(

Once you have identified with some form of negativity, you do not want to let go, and on a deeply unconscious level, you do not want positive change. It would threaten your identity as a depressed, angry, or hard-done by person. You will then ignore, deny, or sabotage the positive in your life. This is a common phenomenon. It is also insane.
The thing to judge in any jazz artist is, does the man project and does he have ideas.
I am laughing so fucking hard
