A Knee-Jerk Rush of Jerkdom (And more thoughts from my Higher Self)

Thoughts from my Viciously Depressed Thursday night (Come on in, the Hell-fire’s Warm!)

It is 8:15pm on a Thursday night. ¬†I have just gotten done with the¬†work day. ¬† Very. ¬†Low. ¬†Energy. ¬†And heavy. ¬† Basically, I just want to fizzle out for the night. But instead, something tells me to sit down at my computer and start typing this post. ¬† I didn’t particularly want to write […]

My Exercise Life: King Integrity, I Salute Thee! (Warning: more Explicit language from Potty Mouth Chris!)

Greetings! First, let me say that at this very moment my head is swimming in confused messages about how I “shouldn’t be writing this blog” and “why am i not doing a blog about music?” and “don’t you realize how much you are fucking* everything up, Chris, by doing this blog? ¬†It’s really stupid, it’s […]

Meet Mr. Trashman (Warning: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE from the world’s biggest douchebag inside my head!)

Confessions of a Reluctant Self-Marketer

First of all, let me start out by saying that, as a musician, I work in a professional field that requires getting the word out.  Music, like any business, requires that I pick up my boot straps  (or whatever the old expression is) and get out there and let people know that I exist.  To my […]

Talk #2 with my “Higher Self” (There goes my pretense of normalcy)

This is a conversation I just typed on my computer in the last half hour. It is with me and my “higher self,” or at least, some spirit of inspiration that flowed through me easily so that whenever I asked it a question, I knew what to type down. This is the second time I’ve […]

Chaos in “Full Disclosure”-ville

Hello! ¬†It is Saturday morning at 7:03am according to my computer clock. ¬†I awoke over an hour ago, fed our starving, panicky, hasn’t-been-fed-in-at-least-six-years-or-so-she-thinks cat (one of two, the other is very caaaaasual¬†about eating, and about everything else for that matter, and only does it if he wants, thank you very much). ¬†It’s a bit unusual […]

The Blog-Writing Monster Speaks (me want Blog Cookie!)

Okay, so here I am sitting at my computer. ¬†It is Friday night at 8:16pm, according to my computer clock, which is always right as far as I can tell, because it is hooked up to the great internet time-telling machine in the sky that makes sure all the trains (er, clocks) run on time. […]
