Let’s Talk about Failure! (Yeah baby)

Hi there. … And with these two words begins another auspicious journey, a journey through the mind of  that one-of-a-kind friend of the Earth, visitor to the stars, and swimmer with the fishies at the bottom of the deep blue sea, the one and only… Chris Goslow!

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. […]

This blog’s first guest blogger: My Higher Self (aka Why I’m Completely Crazy)

Hello. My name is CWiggz!, pronounced See Wigs.  I represent Chris’s higher self.  Or you might say his alter ego.  His inner superhero.  Or maybe I’m an angel spirit looking out for him.  Anyway, for the purposes of this post it doesn’t matter which way you think of me.  I am here because Chris wanted […]

The Douchebaggery to Badassity Continuum (Where do you stand?)

A long time ago, before I met my wife, I was dating a woman and I remember one time she made a comment about some guy being a “douchebag.”  Maybe I was just out of touch with modern slang (wouldn’t be surprised), but I don’t remember having heard that word before then. But I do […]

Post #4: Happy Birthday Dad!

Hello, all, and What’s Up! DISCLAIMER: I just came home from a cool experience working with some MCs and artists for a show I’m going to do here in Sacramento in June.  I’m only saying this because  I got a bit of that creative buzz on me as I write. I hope this post makes […]

Post #3: How long will I keep numbering my posts? And other inconsistencies…

Okay, so as I set up the foundation (or whatever this is) for this new blog (which is an acronym for “boldly looking odd globally”), I think it’s time to talk a bit about the ground rules. Here’s the ground rules: There are none.

Post #2: I have no idea how to do this… (And other words of marketing genius)

Hello there!  Earlier today I started this blog. Here’s the exciting (to me at any rate) sort-of narrative of events: I bought the domain name on Godaddy after making sure it was still available (since I got the idea of this blog a month ago and looked up the domain, even though it may sound dumb, […]
