Mad as Hell...American Prayer

i heard from my wife yesterday that some ladies around her office are passing out propaganda about Barack Obama. they are claiming that old story that he is a muslim and will turn our whole country over to Islam. how sad is that that people still believe that shit. and these are people that don't know shit about politics. they just pass on garbage that they hear from some repub/neocon shit. are people in this country really still that fearful of a black man? what scares me more are the white trash that spread rumors and lies just to stay in office and reap the rewards(our money) of our country.

i for one think that it is not right to be spreading any kind of political propaganda around a work place. i also feel that people need to open there eyes and see what's really going on in our country. whether you believe in the whole change thing or not, our country has been heading in the wrong direction for the past 8 years and yes we do need a change.

so, please do what you do and get out and vote in November. these are inspiring times and we all can make a difference no matter who you vote for.

downturn

so, the day starts off great. better than usual. i dont sleep very well. so, im often extremely tired when i get going in the morning. but, maybe thats everybody. i did feel good though this morning. unitl i got to work and had a cup of coffee. this morning has been a battle with my irritants. im annoyed. ready to kill at times :) and dragged down. im thinking that i cant do the coffee anymore. or the caffeine. i get the nice quick rush. then its like skiing down a slippery slope, going 99 miles an hour. where do i land? im sure it wont look good.

An Act The Boss Would Hire... Music Review

Here's an act The Boss(Springsteen) would hire. Baltimore native Gene Gregory is a singer/songwriter with a predilection for penning tunes with melancholic verses flanked by uplifting, major-key refrains. Gene hails from the OAR school of acoustic rasp-rock. In fact, Gene's voice sounds like a more unrestrained, undercooked version of OAR lead singer Marc Roberge's throaty growl.

ah, the beach

just got from the beach today. was a nice relaxing time. found some new places to eat at and help expand my waistline. started off friday night by heading down to salisbury for the show at The Monkey Barrel. got into a little bit of the Sparks and the bartender pouring a shot down my throat. the show started off well. i was going on 3rd. by this time i had a bit of a buzz and not much of a voice left. due, to playing the past few nights and not getting much sleep. well, i got up to rock out and explained to everyone that someone in cambridge jumped me in the bathroom and stole my luau attire while i was taking a leak. woops, forgot to mention that this show was a spring luau party. so, i was without my get-up. anyways, i played about 5 songs than was told that i had one song left. much to my surprise too. i wasnt too happy about this. so, i finished my 6 songs that i traveled to salisbury to play, packed up, payed the tab and hit the door. i thought it would be a good idea to leave before some words started flying.

so, we left and headed towards the sands. once there and after unloading the car, we decided to find something to eat at 1:30 in the morning. thank good for late night pizza/sub shops. ummmmm, cheesteak. actually, it wasnt that good and i cant remember the name of the place. next morning we headed out to find some more food. we found Jimmys Diner. wow, what a surprise in this little place. i ordered a cheesesteak omellette and some coffee. food came out in about 5 mins. perfect. Jimmys slogan is, "start your morning with a little sunshine". they had sun artwork all over. just perfect. we headed to rehobeth after that to check out the beach and walk on the boardwalk. not sure why, it never changes. well, it appeared that the little sunshine we wanted just wouldnt make it. it was cloudy, windy and a bit nippley while there. but, we made the best of it. nothing like an iced coffee on a cloudy, cool day at the beach.

saturday night we cruised looking for some good music. ended up at Castaways to check out Cant Hang, a baltimore band. guess what? they got food there too. no, no cheesesteak this time. just had some steamed shrimp and nachos. they werent that appealing either. well, Cant Hang started and all the young, drunk frat boys and girls started rolling in. so much amusement in watching drunk white kids trying to get down :) i couldnt hang my smile any longer past 11:30pm and had to head back. thank goodness for Meet The Parents being on continuous rerun on cable yesterday. got to watch some more of that.

sunday started off with no big surprises. just some much needed rest and some sunshine, finally. walked out to the beach, thinking it would be perfect for it. but, once again the wind almost blew us over and it was damn chilly. so, it was time to clean up and get to rolling home.

we took the long way back through deleware and enjoyed the scenery and veggie wraps at royal farms. yummy!!! twice this weekend i have driven over the bay bridge. over the exact lane and spot where 3 people were tragically killed on thursday. i wanted to send some prayers out to their families and wish them all the best. it helped me think about and realize what my friends and family mean to me. you are all very important to me. thank you for making my life what it is. i couldnt do it without you.

also, to all the mothers i know out there, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!
