a while back, I mentioned how my cousin's girlfriend wanted to fix me up with her old boss. figured we were a good fit (similar interests, we don't drink, etc.). at least I think I mentioned it. we were going to meet, her uncle dies. nothing for a while.

today, my cousin said she got fired, has disappeared, and probably won't see...

last night, finally saw Alice in Chains in concert. yes, I have been a fan since "Man in a Box" came out on video (I saw it and was immediately intrigued by the band). I probably should write down the bands I want to see live (and those I will never get a chance to see live, either because they broke up or deaths.....like...

Tomorrow I'm organizing my Heroclix collection, so I can get doubles in a box and everything. my cousin orders the product through his comic book store, and we have some new...

After about a month, finally went through and put everything in my "checkbook"....I use an app on my phone, so I can enter the information and go from there. thankfully everything lined up and I didn't overdraw or anything.

Working on two music videos and we start recording the new album in 2 months.  Still have a day job.  Hope to get rid of that next year. 

my bio-father turned 65 yesterday. I use the term "bio-father" because he left when I was an infant (9 1/2 months old) and didn't come back into my life (from what I remember) until I was in 3rd grade really. I guess he used to visit before, but I don't remember. our life was very difficult for many years, and to this...

Make yourself more attractive.  Lift weights.  Get some nice clothes.  Do you have a wingman? And if so, why not? There's a reason guys do this stuff - it works.
