If I had an endless supply of finances things would be a lot different, although I guess if we all had that things would be insanely different. To live in a world where every one could do what they wanted and create what they want every moment of every day, now there’s an experience worth dreaming for. If I had a million dollars right now … Continue reading Addicted to Progress
Went for a long walk the other day. It was +11 in Edmonton in January, completely unheard of. If weather was like that here all winter I would have no problem living in Edmonton for the rest of my life, sadly I know it’s going to change. We have a couple more days of warm weather then it’s back to -20. Must enjoy the beautiful … Continue reading Screw Snow Day, How About Sun Day
I haven’t been DJing much the last few months as the Wedding scene in Alberta has pretty much dried up… or should I say frozen over, haha, that’s a terrible joke. Anyway, DJing has been picking up a little bit here with all the Corporate Xmas parties going on, but beyond that it’s been slow. I guess the main reason why I’m writing about this … Continue reading No Time Like the Present
Well, what can I say? I felt pretty bad about leaving the band to go to Atlanta for 17 days and focus on work not music. Sadly it made no real difference what so ever because we’re still without a jam space. Like how the fuck are we supposed to work on music when we have no where to play? I’m practically waiting for the … Continue reading The Jam Space Treadmill
Today is my last day in Cleveland and it has been one helluva a trip. I wasn’t sure how it was gonna pan out when I first got here, but now I’m really glad that I came to town. My flight leaves in about 7 hours to head home and I still have one last place to go before then, the Rock and Roll Hall … Continue reading Cleveland Browns Demolished the Giants!
Tonight I decided to sit down and set some goals for myself. In a matter of no time I wrote down over 40 goals that I have. I was quite surprised at how much I actually needed to write all that down and get it on paper and out of my head. It was everything from travel plans to music goals, to swimming with dolphins … Continue reading Goal Setting is Good 🙂
The Portal show was freaking awesome, and I have the swag to prove it! Even though we played on Friday at the Starlite Room, I think I was even more excited to watch Portal play at Jet Nightclub on Saturday; and let me tell you – they did not disappoint. It was such a fun and inspiring night, and now I’m even more stoked to be working with these … Continue reading Portals CD Release Party Was Wicked!
This summer I have been to Devon, Spruce Grove, Viking, Cold Lake, Fort Mac, Calgary, Jasper, Kamloops, Parksville, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Delta, and Victoria; and I’m sure I missed a few others that I can’t remember right now. I put roughly 25,000km on the Focus I drive in less than 4 months… I feel like a god damn travelling sales men… except I get to go … Continue reading Life in Constant Transition
Last week at the ASHES dIVIDE show I had the pleasure of getting my hands on a pre-release copy of Portal’s new album entitled “Blood Red Tape”. For those of you who don’t know, Portal is a Progressive Hard Rock band from Edmonton, and in my opinion one of the best Prog Rock bands in Canada. They’ve been around for about 7 or 8 years and we actually … Continue reading Blood Red Tape – The New Portal Album
When I heard that Dream Theater was coming to Calgary on May 9th 2008, there was no hesitation in buying the tickets the moment they went on sale. A band that I have been listening to for years (even more so after their newer album Train of Thought came out, which I suggest everyone takes a listen to), it was surreal to finally see the … Continue reading Dream Theater LIVE Kicked Ass!
