New Idea, Sort of...

So I had this new idea for my music. However, this new idea is already used by my "Older than Dirt" Aunt, along with my Dad. I'm going to post a different song in my player every week, or two days, or two hours...etc. Basically, whenever I'm feeling a certain song, you're gonna hear it. (or shut it off mid-song)

Tonight's song is A Tout Le Monde by Megadeth.

Historically a 90's Metal band, Megadeth was on the front page of many magazines along with their much more sold counterparts Metallica. Megadeth blazed through the 90s with a unique voice, and a heavy metal influence. With hit songs such as Sweating Bullets - a tantric melody of a man who sits in jail talking to himself about all the wrongs of his life and how "hindsight is always 20/20, Symphony Of Destruction (which we sang at prom), and now A Tout Le Monde.

A Tout Le Monde is a song about a man who is at the end of his days. A Tout Le Monde is french for Set Me Free, which is also echoed throughout the song.

It's just a great song to listen to.

Give it a try!

Attention: Pause your music players now! I just realized this isn't the studio it's pretty rough. The studio version is much better. Click on the link below and then on "A Tout Le Monde" in the music player to give it a spin.

À Tout le Monde

It was a great ride while it lasted.

You were the face of a franchise that was left in shambles.

After a record setting 119 losses in a single season - you made it possible to draw marquee players like Magglio Ordonez and Gary Sheffield.

You always had faith in where the team, owner, manager, general manager, and assistants were going with the team.

You played every out of every game that you were asked to play, including a 17 inning marathon with the Seattle Mariners.

...And you did it in catching gear.

You nabbed 37.4% of base stealers - at the age of 37.

Your career batting average is a jaw dropping .302 - unheard of from a catcher.

You won 13 Gold Glove awards.

You've won a world series.

You've played for 18 seasons at the Big League level.

You may not be a Detroit Tiger anymore, but you will live in our hearts forever.

Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, you were a team player who did all you could for the Detroit Tigers.

And for that I, and any other true Tigers fan, will always be in your debt.

Enjoy your time in the Big Apple, and thank you for all you've done.

I Made A Song!

So I've been playing around with this program on my Mac called Garage Band. With this program, you can make music by using almost any instrument imaginable. You can even record yourself singing or playing instruments and publish them. I used purely computer instruments since I can't play any of my own. I put about 3 hours of work into this song, so you had better all listen. Even though the link below says "download", you don't really have to download it. All you do is click on the link and it takes you to a website that hosts the song and plays it. It's a lot like photobucket.

So, enjoy it already!

Pop it and Lock It

It's Tuesday, July the 22nd, of 2008. Today is the first day of the rest of my life. As I sit here, I am thinking in anticipation about college. So many things excite me and confuse me about college.

First off, just so we're clear, I'm attending Central Michigan University in the fall.

Central is a promising school for my intended major, which is Political Science. A Poli Sci degree doesn't limit you to becoming a politician, however, what could be better than working 4 days a week with a large salary and never having to work holidays? That's not even mentioning all the great benefits and pension plan.

Some good politicians:

Also, coming with college is my next level of responsibility. I will be out on my own, living by myself. Well, I will be living with 3 other people, but you know what I mean. I will be staying in Kesseler, which is one of the new towers on campus. They are 4 person, 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, and living room suites. I am so relieved to not only have my own room, but AIR CONDITIONING!

I applied to a couple on-campus jobs recently. Shae, you will be proud to know that I applied to SBX, but I haven't received a call back yet. However, I have an "in" to be on the maintenance crew for the Towers. How great would that be? To be a maintenance person in my own buildings! It would be so convenient, and it'd be the work that I like doing the best.

I hope that this will put an end to at least some of the whining coming from someone who only writes about one thing anyhow.

Oh, the possibilities...

So, I sit here with one of my friends and we come across a great question.

Is S-Y-R-U-P pronounced See-Rup, or Sir-Up...?

What does everyone think, and why?

Sweet Caroline

Baaah baah bah...

If you're wondering why I'm so excited right now, it's because I am coming to all of you from a MacBook!

I'm very sorry that I don't have the pictures that I promised. My batteries were dead! And then I couldn't find any more AA batteries. So for that I'm very sorry. As soon as I get my batteries for my camera, I will show you all my new baby.

The Number of the Beast

Yes, today is the day that I hit 666 profile views. I figured that was incentive enough to post a new blog. First off, I get my computer either tomorrow or Saturday, so be expecting a good blog with pictures of me getting it! It may have to wait until Sunday night depending on how the staining goes the next couple nights, but I'm sure I will want to try out my new computer in the blogging world. I got my iPod touch yesterday and it's as amazing as I thought it'd be. I'm finally in the iPod world! Anyway, I'm headed out to stain, so have a good night everyone.

I know, long time no blog, right? Well, to be quite frank - I've been busy. Lately I've been working 8 hour days 4 days a week, and then I've been devoting 12-14 hours each Friday, Saturday, Sunday to watching baseball and softball. And while I've been having a lot of fun and earning a lot of money, it's left me out on the blogging world for the most part. I'm proud to say that I picked up a side job staining everyone's favorite teacher's house, Mrs. Walton's. I'm also proud to say that because of it I put in my first 14 hour work day today.

So please excuse me while I pass out until 7am when I will get up and do it again :D
