What…a new post?!

Yes…indeed your eyes are not fooling you! This is a new post! Man too much has happened over the last several months that I can’t really do anything but gloss over stuff and give a general idea of how things are right now. I don’t really have much to say otherwise to tell the truth.

Before I get started I want to point out that I have posted links to all my facebook pictures here in the Gallery section on the right. Check them out at some point! Also, there is a new page in the pages list to the right – it’s a page full of iTunes info about the number of times I’ve listened to songs, what I’ve bought on iTunes recently, and such info. Check it out!

Ok, so what has been going on…? Went to a free concert at Centennial Olympic Park on the 4th of July to see Vertical Horizon. I love their music, and the show did not disappoint. There was an awesome fireworks display after the concert as well. Overall it was one of the best 4ths I’ve ever had.

I went to Myrtle Beach with my Mom, brother, and nephew from July 12 to July 17 – that was just a collection of awesomeness. We had such a blast just hanging out together – swimming in the pool and at the beach – eating out – and just chilling. We took turns hiding in places in the room we had and jumping out to scare each other. I got Mom and Lee Jay really good a couple of times – got it all on video too lol. I’m going to post it at some point….

In August me and Lee Jay went to see Chickenfoot in concert. It’s Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony (formerly of Van Halen), along with Chad Smith on drums (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Joe Satriani on guitar (formally just a solo artist). It was the best concert that both of us has ever been to! It was just amazing, and I love their music so much. Then a couple days later I went to see them here in Atlanta as well, at the Tabernacle. That was just as awesome, plus they filmed that show as well for an upcoming DVD release. I was close to the front so I’m sure I’m going to pop up on that video at some point. Can’t wait to check that out. I got a lot of pics of the concerts though, and they are on facebook. You can access a link to them via the Gallery page here.

The NFL season has started now and I’m busy keeping up with the fantasy aspects that comes along with that, plus just watching the games on Sunday and Monday nights. This is my favorite time of the year. I love Autumn, and I love football, and I love Halloween! Fah Lah!

I’ve been a money spending freak lately. I bought a PS3 in August – finally! Blu-Ray makes DVD look and sound like shite, which is something I didn’t think would happen so soon. Just got my first DVD player only 10 years ago or so. I wonder what we’ll be watching movies with in just another decade? Will they be holographic a-la Star Trek The Next Generation? Maybe someday, I’m sure, but I don’t think that will happen in 10 years, but who knows?

Anyway, for me there’s nothing like watching an old favorite movie in HD glory with HD surround sound. Although the HD surround sound came later as just last week I bought a new A/V receiver so I could get the HD sound out of the Blu Rays. It’s just amazing – I’m hearing sound separation that I’ve never had in my little “home theatre” before. I am very pleased with the setup and how it’s working out. The same day I bought the receiver, I also bought a scanner because I have a TON of old pics that I’ve been meaning to scan to digitally preserve. So I’ve been doing a lot of that lately – tripping down memory lane. It’s been a blast, and I’ve posted a lot of them to facebook as well.

So…that’s about it. Life is good. It could be better but I’m not going to complain – it sure as hell could be a lot worse. On the good side – I still love my job with Turner Broadcasting. Not much else to say about that. On the could be better side – I’m still single.

For the first 2 1/2 years or so after I got divorced, I really didn’t want to see any chicks. I was just so soured over my consistent bad luck and heartbreaks where it comes to dealing with the opposite sex. I just wanted to be a celibate bachelor and not have to deal with any female constant influx of ridiculous lunacy.  After those 2 1/2 years, I slowly started to wish I was dating again, and I find myself in that place right now. I keep asking chicks out and am getting turned down lol. It’s all good, though. I have all the faith I think I can have – it will work out if it’s meant to be. Life counts and keeps counting, though. Gotta keep moving on – I’d rather experience what I have to experience than sit around and watch the time pass me by. I’m trying , my friends, I’m trying. 🙂

So that’s that for now. I hope this post find you all happy and well. Until next time….

I found the pieces in my hand
They were always there
It just took some time for me to understand
You gave me words I just can’t say
So if nothing else
I’ll just hold on while you drift away

Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow, the rivers flow
Where you are, I never know
But I’m still  here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here
Still here

Seen the ashes in my heart
I smile widest
When I cry inside and my insides blow apart
I try to wear another face
Just to make you proud
Just to make you put me in my place

But everything you wanted from me
Is everything that I could never be

The cities grow, the rivers flow
Where you are, I’ll never know
But I’m still  here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here

Maybe tonight it’s gonna be alright
I will get better
Maybe today it’s gonna be okay
I will remember

I held the pieces of my soul
I was shattered
And I wanted you to come and make me whole
When I saw you yesterday
But you didn’t notice
And you just walked away

Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

The cities grow, the rivers flow
Where you are, I’ll never know
But I’m still  here
If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one who’s gone
And I’m still here

The lights go out, the bridges burn
Once you’re gone you can’t return
But I’m still here
Remember how you used to say
I’d be the one to run away
But I’m still here
I’m still here
