GUITARS ARE LIKE SEX...


That's why I love Michael Schenker!

If Only This Were True

You Are a Rock Star

Even if you can't play a single instrument, you're a total rebel and creative type.
You couldn't imagine yourself with a corporate job, and you couldn't imagine having a boss.

You are expressive, original, and often times a bit moody. You are very real about who you are and what you're feeling.
You tend to get in trouble a lot. You have a total bad girl or bad boy attitude, and you just always seem to be landing in hot water!

Snowzilla!

To hell with Snowpocalypse and Snowmageddon, I have SNOWZILLA!

More snow in the forcast this week. No earth shattering amounts, but we've had enough already!

Look At This!


Stained glass lightbulbs, five bucks each! I must be insane.
They sure do make interesting patterns on my ceiling, and they look much prettier than ordinary lightbulbs in the strange light fixture in my bedroom.

I Got A New Toy!


And I am wasting so much time playing with it. No more downloading ringtones, I can create my own. They've got an ap for that. I shall have a complete library of Michael Schenker ringtones.
Gotta love those aps!!!

Tuesday Tunes

Another little musical meme from The Music Memoirs.

If you could interview one band/artist who would it be?

Michael Schenker!
Well, duh!

What kind of questions would you ask?
Definitely some non-musical questions. Some fluff, really. Nobody ever asks him the fluff questions, what he likes to eat, what movies he likes, stuff like that...
That done, I'd also like to ask him how he felt when he first joined UFO, being just a 17 year old kid in a country where he didn't even speak the language yet...

What magazine/paper would you work for?
As much as I'd like to do the interview for Rolling Stone, it's much more likely to be published in Guitar Player!

Manic Monday

What's your least favorite word?
Snow - The most disgusting four-letter word ever!

Where do you go when you need really good advice?
That would depend upon what type of advice I needed. For most matters, I can go to someone in my family. If it's work related, I'll usually go to one of our union reps.

If you could participate in any winter Olympic sport, what would it be?
What is this thing you call the Olympics?
I don't much care about them or any of the included sports. Don't wanna watch. Don't wanna participate, not even in my wildest fantasy!

Happy Lupercalia!



To Hell with all of that Valentine shit!
February 14 is Lupercalia, a major fesival from ancient Rome that was named in honor of wolves.
The festival was held during the peak breeding season for wolves. Wolves only breed once a year. Typically only the pack leaders produce the pack’s single litter of pups. The breeding season extends over February with the breeding pair exhibiting courtship rites (e.g. playing, howling together, physical bonding, etc) throughout the process. The alpha female gives birth about 63 days after she becomes pregnant. Born blind and helpless, the whole pack cares for the youngsters until they’re old enough to hunt on their own at about 10 months of age.

Now you know...

I Love You, Mr. Grey!


This snowstorm has me thinking alot about the sweet kitty that I brought home last year. I fell in love with him the first time I met him. He was such a sweetie, always happy to see me. I played with him every time a certain family on my route had a package. I thought that he was their cat. He was not. They had merely been feeding him since his owner moved away and left him behind.
The day after I discovered this, I brought him into my home.
He sleeps with me. He eats with me. He follows me around.
All is good, but what would have happened to him if I hadn't been around to take him in?!
Should I ever happen to meet his former owner, I will slap her first and ask questions later...

How Much Snow Is Too Much?

This much!

Where the fuck did my car go?!

Michael's car has disappeared as well...

Friday, February 05, 2010

Let It Snow!

Oh, no!

The snow began tol fall in earnest at approximately 3PM. By 5:30 I could see this outside my window...

As I look outside now, I can see snow nearly to the top of the bumper of my car!
Oh,yay!
And it ain't over yet.
This is what the National Weather Service says that Old Man Winter still has in store for us:

Tonight: Periods of snow. Low 26F. Winds ENE at 10 to 20 mph. Additional snow accumulating 5 to 8 inches.
Tomorrow: Snow during the morning will transition to snow showers during the afternoon. High 26F. Winds NNE at 10 to 20 mph. 1 to 3 inches of snow.

Stop The Slaughter!


Did you know that the Canadian government allows for hundreds of thousands of seals to be killed in its annual seal massacre? Most of these gentle creatures are just babies, and many are skinned alive on the ice while still conscious!

With all eyes on Canada as it prepares to host the 2010 Winter Olympics, the country should end the seal slaughter now so that the Vancouver Olympics aren't tarnished.
Write to the Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee and urge it to help end the seal slaughter now!

Manic Monday

What was your best day of the week last week and why?
Oh, that's an easy one!
WEDNESDAY!!!
That's the day that I got my Michael Schenker Flying V.
Wanna see it again?!
You're gonna...

Really, this is a different photo from the one in the earlier post!

What's the longest you've ever gone without sleep?
I remember pulling a few all nighters back in my college days. I'm fairly certain that I went about 48 hours without sleep a few times back then. I'm more of a cat-napper these days.

Is how old you look and/or how old you feel right now different from your actual age?
Most people think that I'm in my early to mid 30s when they meet me. Mentally, I don't think I've aged past 16... I'm 48.
