I Mentioned At Some Point I Played Guitar…

I tried to upload this audio file here but it requires an upgrade. And I’m a cheap S.O.B. so I went searching for an online music database. I settled with Soundcloud and finally got around to uploading a music file. It took some doing, turns out I had to change a wma file to a wav file, so had to figure out how to do that. Which I discovered I could do exactly that with itunes, which I already have and did not need to dl anything. Just had to learn how to do it.

Ain’t the internet great?

So if you want to hear this you will need to click this link. I could not get this to play on Chrome, but I have HTML5 autoplay disabled. I very much dislike being hit with autoplay video everywhere I go. But it worked fine for me on IE. So, what I’m getting at I suppose is, if you have trouble getting it to play it is likely a browser issue.

I have a rough (absoluteley raw, no editing, no effects) song on a 16 track digital recorder I want to put up soon, as well as another track or two from my pro studio experience. Will get around to it as I can. Life is such that it is hard to take the time to hunt down all of the neccessities to get these kind of jobs done.

A little intro is appropriate I guess. I used to play with a band a while back and a few more before that that through the years.When my youngest son was born I had to retire from the music thing as babies are quite demanding of time. Anyway some years later my old buddy Brose who sings and plays bass on this song, called me up about doing some guitar work on some stuff he had going in a studio. I jumped at the opportunity and was able to record a couple of old songs I had lying around. Oh if you can’t abide classic rock or or southern rock don’t click! I swear I don’t try to have a southern rock flavor, that’s just what comes out.

Well, I did not know that posting the link would do that. 🙂 But I’ll take what I can get, especially if it works. I uploaded that song a short time ago and already have 2 followers and 7 plays lol. (that third follower got me right after I made the account a month or two ago)

So Are You Vaping?

If you are I suggest you read this:

https://www.dri.edu/newsroom/news-releases/5437-hazardous-chemicals-discovered-in-flavored-e-cigarette-vapor

Long story short the aerosols in vape juice contain, and I quote “dangerous levels of hazardous chemicals known to cause cancer in humans.”  Another quote: “One puff of any of the flavored e-liquids that we tested exposes the smoker to unacceptably dangerous levels of these aldehydes, most of which originates from thermal decomposition of the flavoring compounds.”

The breakdown of the vape juice during the rapid heating process creates these aldehydes. (think formaldehyde) From the story it looks to me like they did a respectable scientific study. Being an ex cigarette smoker I have to wonder how many people will respond with the old line “we gotta die from something!”

Vaping is as bad as regular old tobacco folks. Maybe worse. What makes this even more troublesome is the fact that a lot of kids are vaping these days. One of my boys went through a phase, I’m glad he walked away from it. I like to think my influence helped him do so. I kept telling him “you don’t know what the hell you are putting into your lungs, this stuff is too new and no testing has been done.” Well the tests are in.

I’d like to think my influence might help someone else walk away from this habit too. Let’s all just die of old age instead of tobacco/chemical caused cancers and breathing problems such as COPD. Or from the nukes fired at us because of Trump…   😉

 

Are You Kidding Me? They Elected The Great Orange Pumpkinhead?

I do hereby disassociate myself from the segment of society (morons) that would vote Trump into the White House. I really want to say fuck Trump and fuck the idiots that voted for him. But that would take a while apparently.

I went to bed early last night. I saw the trend, I am sick to my stomach. I am a tad depressed. I am feeling like my dog died. This is an enormous tragedy for our country. A tragedy for the the people. A tragedy for the entire world.

All I can think right now is if there is a wall built, I want to be on the other side of it.
