When You Finally Get The Girl

INTRODUCTIONSo many adults seem to have forgotten what it is like to be a kid or a young adult. Fortunately for me, thanks to the power of Autism, I haven’t forgotten. I can recall the sensation rather easily, and I remember how I felt about certain things and people. For a young boy, there isContinue reading “When You Finally Get The Girl”

Time, Money, and Experts

There was this woman having coffee in a cafe in France, when she noticed a world-famous artist. Without hesitation, she quickly approached him. “Please sketch a picture of me!” she asked.

On Ageism and Growing Old

It wasn’t all that long ago that I used to always be THE youngest person in the office. I was “the kid,” as they’d say. My change from this status to one of being old happened virtually overnight.

Memories of Denny’s, Jani Lane, and Watching Someone Die on the Inside

Before I get into it, the “I Want You” project is still in the works, with daily rehearsals of the material on all instruments. I should have an update late this week or early next week. THE GOOD DENNY’SWhen I lived in Burbank, California, there was a Denny’s about 0.6 miles away from where weContinue reading “Memories of Denny’s, Jani Lane, and Watching Someone Die on the Inside”

Digital Recording and Avoiding Perfection

NOTE: If you are NOT a musician, then fear not! I have you covered with a video that shows what I am talking about. Back in the early 2000s, I was recording a track with Noodle Muffin. This track was one where I played multiple instruments, including drums, bass, rhythm guitar, and a few others.Continue reading “Digital Recording and Avoiding Perfection”
