Renewal of My Website

I’ve had my website, drumwild.com, since 1999. Over the years, it has served me well. In the early years, it got me gigs. I was asked to join the band Secret in late 1999 with no audition, because everything they needed to know and see was on the website. For a while, I used itContinue reading “Renewal of My Website”

Accidental Black Friday

There is no denying that I’m an early bird. As someone who grew up in the Midwest, I’ve always kept an early schedule. Beyond that, my Autism contributed heavily to my insomnia. Today, it fits perfectly into my old man schedule. We had our Thanksgiving on Wednesday, and it went fine enough, outside of myContinue reading “Accidental Black Friday”

The Past: I Am SO Over It [and Why the 80s Were SO Good]

I was cleaning house and moving a few rooms around a few days ago. While doing this, I found another box of photos that I’d thought had been lost. These images go WAY back in some cases. I’ll post a few of them here. Some of the photos were very similar to photos I alreadyContinue reading “The Past: I Am SO Over It [and Why the 80s Were SO Good]”

51 Years Ago: 11-17-70 by Elton John

INTRODUCTIONToday I’ll be writing about one of my biggest influences with regard to music, Elton John. The live performance that he gave back in November 17 of 1970 has been an album that has stuck with me for the majority of my life. As is the case with most artists whose careers started before IContinue reading “51 Years Ago: 11-17-70 by Elton John”

Rebuild Your Identity [It Might Stink]

INTRODUCTIONDoes YOUR identity STINK? If you’re an America, then it might. How a human identifies plays a crucial role in the survival of any person. It’s what drives them to do certain things. It informs our social connections and behaviors. It can motivate. It can inspire. It can also be destructive. IDENTITY AND 1970s FACTORYContinue reading “Rebuild Your Identity [It Might Stink]”

The Phones Are Listening

INTRODUCTIONI’ve known about this for a very long time. For a while, it was a suspicion of mine. This is because they’d try to be discrete about how they delivered things to the phone based on what they’ve heard. From 2017-2019, I spent a good deal of time at home. But I was fortunate enoughContinue reading “The Phones Are Listening”

Three Types of People Worth Remembering

INTRODUCTIONThis is something that I’ve been meaning to write for a while. My dilemma on this was whether to start off positive, or to end positive. Ultimately, I’ve decided to start off positive, since those are people deserving of my praise. As for the ending, let it serve as a warning. Let’s GOOOOOOO!!! 1 ofContinue reading “Three Types of People Worth Remembering”

Americans Believe Lots of Stupid Things… and It’s Getting Dangerous

My formal education was abysmal. Grade school was a rehash of things I already knew by the time I got there. As for junior high and high school, I was putting more time into protecting myself from bullies and shitty teachers than actual learning. I learned more during my first quarter of college than IContinue reading “Americans Believe Lots of Stupid Things… and It’s Getting Dangerous”

The Funny Day My Vision Went Bad

INTRODUCTIONWhen I started shaving my head in 1998, I noticed that some people I worked with were afraid of me. Maybe it was because I’m a big guy. I’m not really sure. But I did have an idea to try to deal with it, about a year later. I went to a eyewear shop andContinue reading “The Funny Day My Vision Went Bad”

Hallowe’en and The Legend of Tibo Bat

INTRODUCTIONTibo Bat was born on September 9, 2019, but he wasn’t always Tibo Bat. [There will be Hallowe’en themed photos at the end!] Catherine worked at a veterinarian clinic around that time, when a co-worker let her know that her cat had kittens, and asked if she wanted one. She said “yes,” thinking that RascalContinue reading “Hallowe’en and The Legend of Tibo Bat”
