Friends for friends

I’ve added a link to my friends in the sidebar: Robots Hate Cancer. Reason being my friend Daniel, has a good
friend of his going through this battle against cancer. And the site has been set up for 2 things. 1 – It’s a
great way to get out there the perspective of our generation the (20s-30s) going through this ordeal. 2 – It
ain’t cheap, so they are using it as a platform to raise money.

In our brief conversation earlier today, an interesting thought came up on the necessary mind set that is
needed. It’s the survival, the necessity to fight. as they are saying in the site, “we can do more than wear
our stylish bracelets.” Just looking at the site shows this. It’s more like !#$& YOU CANCER! And I think
that’s the best and most powerful mindset to have. So I post this article not out of “poor poor” person with
cancer, but more like FNA! Let’s all give cancer the finger while we burn it to hell with lasers shooting
from our eyes.

Lonely Pedestal

Wake up caged amongst the lost
Walking through their world
Look at the posters pointing
The way not traveled has
been traveled too much
This world rich with illusion
You think you’re found
You think it’s wise
To walk amongst the found
is not travelling at all
On a pedestal looking up
In your caged Freedom
I’m alive and drenched in
the lonely
The Lonely we are

Bye Bye Music Page

I like the idea of having pages in WordPress, although, I’m not seeing any traffic to these. Probably because
according to the stats, most of you are reading through my various feeds. So, if you’ve had the pleasure of
hearing my stuff, great. If not, then feel free to take a listen.

Note 2018-02-25: Links and source mp3s are missing. But I’ve outlined what’s missing. Hopefully I’ll be
able to find these. I’d forgotten them too, and I’d like to here what I made.

Something A Little Funky

I like this little bass groove. It makes me dance. There is a section in it where I’m playing around, don’t
worry you’ll here it


this is a little vocal track I played with when I first got Pro Tools. Yeah! I made it for my answering
machine. Unfortunately it never made it because it’s too long for the answering machine message. Damn Telus!


A long time ago I had a program called Band-In-A-Box. It was pretty cool. You took a chord progression and it
played the chart for you. It was great for making jazz charts. Too bad I can’t remember the progression for
the life of me.

Nick’s Ballad

another take with Band-In-A-Box. Just a little on the slower side

My First Garage Band Song

What more can I say. I got Garage Band and this was the first song out the door.

Something A Little Mellow

I got myself I nice little midi-usb hook-up. And with some nice voices through Garage Band (yet again), I’m
liking it.

Ode to Fight Club

I found a small voice clip from fight club. Thought it worked nicely.

eNetworking isn’t for me

So I’ve finally come to the conclusion that networking through the web isn’t a cup of tea for me. Matter of
fact it isn’t even a cup of anything for me. I’m not in it. For me it’s too forced and not natural enough. I
did go to one of the meet-ups but didn’t really get into it. I’m sure there are other meet-ups that are
great, but right now in my life, not for me. So…the links are gone.


Today I’ll portray a God
Ganesh with arms & tusk wide
Grasping tight
In trunk a soul
In hand the sky holding
Over another with the world
Leaving 2
2 alone to do things daily
Cleaning, dressing, eating
2 alone with no guarded task
No mission
Today I’ll portray a Man


Some 600 or so pages, some laughing and crying, I’m done the newest installment of Harry Potter. I’m starting
to think that there is some sort of addiction there. I actually used up some bank time at work, so I could go
home early to finish it…is that a problem? I guess the problem would be if I didn’t even call into work and
just stayed home.

Part of the homework from The Chrysalis is that we are to come up with 10 things that resonate
and encourage our creativity and then do 3. The timing for the new book was almost kismet because 1 down and
2 to go. Sure, I’m haven’t quite figured out what they are…I’ve still got 9 things besides reading to come
up with…but, when I do, I’ll do 2 of them and homework done. i’ve only got, what, 3 days left to do them?
