I’m using my blog as a way to post a Frost Giant update because, well, it might be a bit long for a Facebook status. Drummer Rich Berends and Frost Giant have parted ways amicably. In fact, the whole band kind of just went on indefinite hiatus for well over a year. Our last show […]Read more "Of Wind, Wisdom, and War"
There’s nothing that clears the mind more than a fresh start. After months of letting this go fallow, I’ve decided to start it all over again. I’m grateful for new starts- genuine new starts, not “do-overs”. A do-over is based in expectation. I tried something, it did not yield the desired result, I’ll do it […]Read more "Days of Gratitude, Day 1: Starting From Scratch"
I’ve gone through a lot of changes since I last made an entry here, too many to recall off the top of my head.

Stiffed more times than I can […]Read more "The Delivery Chronicles, Part 7: The Zen of Tipped Occupations"

Outside of doing a little recording here or there, I haven’t really played for a long stretch, going through songs, or trying to keep myself in playing shape. The band has been sort of on extended hiatus. Other members are keeping themselves […]Read more "Days of Gratitude, Day 23: Back to the Beginning"
It’s been a week since my last entry and I was bothered by that, but I’m okay now. Life gets in the way, and I’ve been working a ton of hours, and that leaves me drained and with little free time to write. So, I’m going to welcome myself back by talking a little about […]Read more "Days of Gratitude, Day 21: Voice Recorders"
Anyone who tells you that they live their life with no regrets is a sociopath, because it means they don’t have a conscience. It means they don’t care whom or what they destroyed to get where they are, and if presented the chance to do it all over, they would gleefully choose to leave the […]Read more "Days of Gratitude, day 17: Regrets, I’ve Had a Few."
