The author...when he was still getting a good night's sleep.


Random thoughts -

 - I am operating on a mere two to four hours of sleep each night. I have a newborn baby girl at home that has apparently decided that the middle of the night is the best time to be wide awake and hang out with her daddy.  :-)

 - I am addicted to two recent releases - Killing Season by Death Angel ( and Death is This Communion by High On Fire ( These are two of the best METAL records I have heard recently. I grew up on metal in the 80's and early 90's and have to say that as the 90's wore on, most metal sounded like "pro" wrestling to me...just very fake and very laughable. But in recent years there has been much more believable and cool metal that has surfaced and these two albums are great examples.

 - Meinl Cymbal artist Trevor Lawrence Jr. just hipped me to a new video he posted on You Tube. It's a lot of fun to watch. Trev has this cool 'stutter' thing that he does, for lack of a better term. Click here to watch.

Hope you're all well. Take care.
