A couple of takeaways from the chick flick I watched last night

|

Last night, I decided to watch a movie I hadn’t seen in over 24 years: Sleepless in Seattle. I liked it then, and I liked it last night. It’s the classic chick flick. Total fantasy for women, kind of like Die Hard is complete fantasy for men. (Yes, Bruce Willis does exactly what I would do if I were in…

How Direct Talk Curates Your Community

|

A couple of days ago, I had a rather unfortunate experience, the trauma of which I’m still recovering. Someone unfriended and blocked me on Facebook! This person is someone who I respect, and he’s been kind enough to be on the podcast before. He definitely knows his stuff when it comes to business and how…

A few observations about the scene on Virginia Beach

|

Hello, and greetings from the Beach! Virginia Beach that is. I’ve returned from the grueling 6 week tour with a drum and bugle corps, and have more or less settled into my new digs at the Mayflower apartments, which is a hop, skip and a jump away from the wonderful Virginia Beach boardwalk – and…

This article first appeared on intellectualtakeout.com… Throughout grade school and high school, I was fortunate to participate in quality music programs. Our high school had a top Illinois state jazz band; I also participated in symphonic band, which gave me a greater appreciation for classical music. It wasn’t enough to just read music. You would…

Why do we stay behind the glass?

little things

I’m currently on tour with the Madison Scouts drum corps. We’re staying at a high school in Hammond, IN, which is right outside of Chicago. (When you have 200 people who need lodging every night for 7 weeks, that hotel bill adds up. A floor at a high school is really the only viable option.)…

How I Put Impossible Stuff Into My Warm-Up Routine

|

I clearly remember listening to Wynton Marsalis playing the cornet on his famous “Carnaval” album. One of the pieces is Grand Russian Fantasia. One of the sections in this piece employs 32nd notes. Even a musical novice can listen to that and be intimidated. All that to say, it goes really fast. So fast, that I…

Dear Go Daddy. I Love You, But…

As an online entrepreneur, I’ve bought my share of domain names. I’m not one of those types who buys thousands of domains and tries to make a profit by marking up the price for people who will actually use them, but I have purchased quite a few in my time. Such was the case with…

I want to be playing at 1 am in a dark bar, in front of people who are indifferent to my existence. Said no musician ever.

|

When I moved to Raleigh, NC after leaving the military in 2016, I was in the market for work as a trumpet player. I got a call from a local bandleader (who’s a friend of mine last I checked) asking if I’d be interested in subbing for a gig they had for a local church.…
