POLL: What’s your ideal length for a song?

Posted on Updated on

I’ve always been curious to the answer. Do you like your quickies? Are you a moderate listener? Do you prefer longer songs? or better yet, are you listener of musical epics the length of The Iliad?  (I will post results on October 31)  For the sake of science don’t forget to share with you friends!!!

10k Challenge

Posted on Updated on

(Play song below while reading it’s related trust.)

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am back in Dayton, Ohio. I enjoyed Buffalo immensely and it made me realize…I LOVE travelling.

After I graduated High School, I wanted to become a modern day nomad. I would travel from place to place every several months living off my music, but at the time I was too young and inexperienced and eventually gave up on it.

Fast forward 3 years later, I rediscovered the notebook where I drafted my nomad plans. Now, that I’m more mature, target doesn’t mind transferring my job to other location, and I don’t have any children or girlfriend to worry about, ( just saying ladies ;p) I decided now is the best time to pursue my travel plans. Except, this  doesn’t come cheap.

So I devised the 10K CHALLENGE. If you were to save $100 a week it will take about 25 months to reach $10,000. This is the minimum amount I want saved before I start my journey…Actually…my journey begins now…starting with this challenge. Wish me luck!

10k challenge – Pruning

Posted on Updated on

When most people move they think about what they need to buy. Curtains, toilet paper etc. I’m Going to do it opposite and think of what I need to get rid of. Well after taking inventory all I really own is notebooks, books, clothes and music equipment. So, notebooks and books take up over 50% of what I own! Most notebooks are blank or nearly blank and all I own is about 2+ tubs of non fiction on subjects from art to html to calculus. My question is what should I do with all these books especially notebooks. (Also be ready for some posts with pics of throwbacks from my old notebooks)

tiny exoskeletons

your time.
the summer the sun
lost sight,
lost it’s brilliant mind.

the cicada’s
steady song
fragile, lost in the buzz of time.
heavy was that summer,
the summer you took
what was mine.
the summer
the stars
lacked luster,
and forgot to shine.

cicadas
crept under foot,
up to the surface,
that same summer you forced
square pegs through circled holes.
the summer you lost sight,
the summer you lost your mind.
you lacked luster,
you forgot to shine.
