My next great work of fiction, coming one day beyond the present.

Was sitting here this afternoon listening to Disturbed, when this song came on, it is my favorite cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence". I meant to share this much earlier, but I got super busy and lost track of time.  I absolutely love David Draiman's voice, he's got a heck of a range with that deep base and an amazing Tenor, that he shows off in this song.  Most of what he sings is within my own voice range, but because my voice is not as in practice as it was years ago, I am no longer able to hit those really high notes in the last two stanzas of the song.

He's actually a classically trained vocalist and from what I recall reading, he still continues with that training in order to both expand his own abilities and to help him maintain his most precious instrument.  I also believe he's been in 7 bands, with Disturbed, being his longest running success, of course as the front man, and it actually had another name but was changed when he joined.  He's very outspoken, but also very intelligent, thus quite the articulate individual, and more than capable of backing up what he believes. He's just an interesting individual with an amazing talent as a writer and singer, who was raised at the same times as I was, being only a year younger than me. A lot of the same metal and grunge bands that inspired David when he was young, are what I remember enjoying.

Of course my range of music I listen to and enjoy is everything from classical, opera, new age, pop, rock, metal, electronic, original old style rap, grunge, punk, eclectic, some country, and even some of the very old western, before it became more pop oriented because it reminds me of my father and my grandfather, with nearly every genre in between that may have failed to mention.  I cover the entire spectrum, liking some music or artists more than others and I sometimes have my limits on how long I can listen to some styles. I even enjoy the sounds of nature, especially for sleep or just white noise, that helps me focus.  It all depends on my mood and what I am doing, as to what I may like, listen to, or in some cases tolerate for a time.

If you haven't heard this, I'd be surprised, but if not you should check it out here on Amazon!! http://point2.click/DisturbedSOS

This is pretty cool... a social network that is decentralized, yet similar to Twitter. The "toots" as they are called have twice the number of characters as Twitter, 500, and instead of one main company, there are many independent servers,, set as local communities, that are all linked together into a larger network that they call a federation.

Each server instance runs the robust, but free open source software, that then on the backend, is automatically linked and maintained by Mastodon. So you have more control of your data and the community policies that are set locally and those rules can be enforced more strictly based on the local community rules.

I set up a profile on one of the largest privately run community servers, come join me to test the waters!

Today, is the unofficial, made official by me, now the default, for the unknown actual Birthday of Rocket!! It's Happy Birthday to Rocket... He's roughly 5 years old or at the least he is that old now. So I guess you could say he's in his mid to late 30's... :-)

Ryan is such a goof... I bet he's a lot of fun in real life too! The two videos on this page are pretty funny.

I've been saying this for years, I just didn't realize that there were 40 Million unfilled jobs in the US, that do not require a 4 year degree.  Not everyone should go to college and waste that much money.  More Trade programs need to start by the beginning of the Junior year of HS.  We're failing our children, we're failing more than one generation.

Have any of you seen this movie yet??  I just want to know what you all think about it.

This is the story about the most decorated dog in American History, yet he was not even an official military dog.  The story is true and absolutely heart warming and should be seen by everyone in the family.

As a birthday gift to myself I went to see the Avengers: Infinity War today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZfuNTqbHE8 I have to say I really loved the movie, it is well paced, does not feel as long as it really is, however it has to be the most depressing ending I have ever seen in a Marvel movie. Anyone else see it yet? If so, did you think it was a really depressing ending too? Really leaves you hanging, with lots of questions unanswered. As mentioned, other than that, it was an excellent must see movie for the franchise... especially if you are an Avengers fan.

What do you think? Do you already own or do you one day hope to own a single family residence? Or would you be OK with buying into and living in a multi-family home instead?

Not so sure I'd want to see this headed towards my home or the home of loves ones, all up close and personal.  Would you??
