Per request of a good friend of mine I watched Jersey Girl…Yes…I am speaking of the Kevin Smith film that was slaughtered by the critics, which in turn resulted in its Box Office DEMISE…However…I got about 20 minutes into the film and started have this cry session that was uncontrollable…I had felt a way that I have never felt before in my life...The harder I tried to run away from feeling this way it consumed my mind, body and soul… I cried even more…Jersey Girl…Revelations…Losing a loved one…Man…I cannot imagine what it would feel like to lose such a powerful figure in my life…The Rock…Stability…The Cure…Fate…

Feel…Feel…How is it that I can flip a switch and turn off what is at the root of my actual reality? I can talk the talk…I can dish out advice…I can save the world…Reality…I need to save myself and stop running away from heart…My passion…My Drive…My willingness to give myself over to a power that is bigger then myself…Where does it go when I turn off the switch? The truth is that the switch never works…It never has…Sadness can overcome my sense of reason, therefore clouding rational judgment…It is time to grow, it is time to alter my fantasies…

Big changes are on the horizon…Am I prepared? Well…Can anyone truly prepare for a life altering event? No…All the planning in the world will not guarantee utopian bliss…But… The Understanding….The Mutuality…The Compromise…The Change…Love…A kindred spirit…The Ying in our Yang…This my friends is how we prevail…Love…A partner for life…A friend…A companion…A Lover…A Warm Body…Change We Will…Change We Must…But True Love…Well…That supercedes all that is irrational, painful, disgusting, hurtful, sad…I cannot lose site of this…Honesty…Honesty…Honest…Honored…Lucky…

One Love

Okay…I give in…The Editors
are awesome…I wanted to brush them off as yet another Joy Division rip off...But man was I wrong…These dudes are fantastic Echo and the Bunnymen impersonators…Not to mention there are traces of U2 Boy era guitar licks that will knock your socks off…

Bottle

I remember a time when having a few or several cocktails meant nothing and/or felt like nothing…I used to swing at hip college parties after chugging 9 or 10 beers, and wake up the next morning on a sofa that was clearly not mine…I often wondered if my lifestyle would ever be altered into what society might call NORMAL…At the tender age of 21 I started to realize that blacking out and waking up next to random boys was not normal; therefore something had to give…I cut back on my drinking…When I made the decision to take such a dramatic turn in my behavior, I watched my close friends sink deeper into substance abuse…Some have halted their teenage angst, while others have continued to "Party like its 1999"…

In no way am I suggesting that its un-cool to have cocktails and/or experiment with mind altering drugs…I just hope that someday the lights will turn on, and the party will end…Priorities will change, and so will the respect we have for one another's life space…I often wonder how one thinks they can truly find happiness in a bottle, but yet I say this mildly intoxicated…Guilty…However, it is more of a B-Side for me to have several cocktails….Look at me on my Soap Box…All I know is that in the end I feel more alone while under the influence then any other moment of my day to day life…Sometimes I want to think alcohol will cure what is at the root of my inner most thoughts…That never seems to work for me…This is not to say that I am not a gas to party with…I can rock out with the best of them…But in the end I wonder why I do it…

What draws one to escape from reality? I am married to a graceful women who thinks and feels with clarity 365 days a year…24 hours a day…That is fucking inspiring and oozing with honesty…What am I getting at? Well…I am tipsy and my wife is in bed…If there was a dance floor with R. Kelly playing though the stereo I would be fine…

LADY!!!

Have you ever felt down in the dumps for no reason at all? I used to thrive on feeling blue; however time has healed my need for ridiculous thoughts and irrational actions…Well…Yesterday I was starting to sink into the abyss until something poked me on the head…Rather…It was as though a light bulb appeared above my head brightly illuminated…Rationality started seeping though my veins like I had never felt before…In fact, the way I was feeling was extremely intoxicating…But it was that good kind of buzz you feel when you are on top of your game…You may be asking "What was it that was making you feel so amazing? " The answer to this question is very simple…Alex Chilton randomly played through my Ipod around 6pm…He was singing about being in love with a lady…I began to realize more then ever that love prevails and conquers my somewhat quivering spirit and soul…"I'm In Love With a Girl"…Thank you Alex…But more importantly…Thank you Wife…

I Love Men

Maybe I have underestimated the American people…But can you believe that Crash won for best picture!!! It was supposed to be the year of the Gay…Brokeback Mountain was loaded with phenomenal acting, a groundbreaking theme and most importantly several hot make-out scenes with two of the hottest boys in the business…Well…Thank God The 36 Mafia is going home with honors…That was worth the three hours spent watching this disgusting display of Hollywood madness…Tune in next year, for we can only hope that Catwoman 2 sweeps all categories….

Truth On Location

I am sitting in front of a hot fire in one of the most fabulous places in Northern Minnesota…I will refrain from naming the location, being that I want none of you to know where I reside at this time…Just know that I am relaxed, and you are not…Enjoy your Monday hammering out the daily grind, while I am sipping on gourmet coffee watching the sunrise over the succulent most delicious Lake Superior…
