I thought the rollercoaster that was 2020 would be that and done. Things haven’t been “as bad” as last year but damn, I need break.
I’ve been making music and drawing and it has helped, but things needs to change around us and I just don’t see that happening anytime soon. It’s a feeling of being stuck in repeat over and over looking for a button, lever, a hidden door, anything to get out and nothing.
So I’ve turned it off I guess? I rarely watch the news because I was tired of the negative. I was never a fan of any side to begin with but lately it seems pretty heavy so I just turn it off. Social media I’ve cut back on a lot and realized I don’t miss it. I’ve even quit carrying around my phone 24/7 and it’s damn nice!
I get on my bike and ride with no where to go, stop by and see old friends. Might try and do a weekend get away on the motorcycle one weekend. Pack up as lite as possible and just go.
I don’t think I need to go too much into the year and and politics and every side that has been quite the dumpster fire. Through all that madness I just have not had much time to update.
The movie I was in (in the previous post) was doing a drive thru movies tour which was pretty cool, I like that they were making a comeback due to COVID. Next time they have an online screener I will post it here.
With everything being shutdown for awhile I did spend a lot of time making music. Maybe it will see the light of day next year.
About a month ago I told myself I need to step back from social media, I feel I was spending too much damn time on it.
I’m really not missing much or anything at all for that matter, but I have noticed it has made conversations change. Everyone loves to ask if you’ve seen this or that on FB and as soon as I say no, or I haven’t been on FB they have to bring me up to speed.
Then they just quit asking altogether, like if you’re not on social media then there is not much to talk about. Is life that boring? No. I’d say there’s is though if you need it that much to hold conversations.
I’m used to it on TV because I watch very little of it. So they “hey did you watch this show” is 99% of the time a no.
Now watching a few hours of TV a week is a lot for me, and by a lot that’s like 3 shows a week or random things like BIO’s and such.
I spend a lot of time reading things online, looking things up, listening to music or watching how-to videos if I’m working on something.
This past weekend outside of some work I spent time taking photos, and it was awesome!
Damn, almost a year.. It’s been a whole lot of crazy going on, some music has been made in the middle of all that
Soon soon soon, Not much going on in my musical happenings. Always writing but everyday life takes my time..
Maybe I’ll put out something soon enough.
My wheels are always turning, and something creative is always going on up in that head of mine.
I was talking to an old friend about old music, old Indifferent Voices in general.. the best description I ever read of how it sounded was “Backwards messages crazy drumming, keybord burning, and other strange mind manipulative shit”
That was pretty spot on back then!
It’s the calm before the storm over here.
Yes, I’m still around. Been updating on another site since the last post… I figured I would put more there and leave this for more Indifferent Voices type stuff.. It’s just a bit different now then say 16 years ago when this venture took it’s shape, which is always changing…
It’s been a wild couple of weeks, Finished off my racing season at the Lone Star 600. Over 200 cars started the race Friday for 300 laps and 165 car Saturday night for the last 300 laps. Almost broke into the top 100 both nights. Driver’s from out of state won it both nights, can’t wait till next year!!
Been talking to a good friend of mine a lot lately, known her for almost 20 years. We talk about everything from A to Z and how our kids are doing and life etc etc. I’ve been very proud of her personal accomplishments as of late and her total life style change into fitness.
Now i’ve never been one to really be a gym rat, I’ve been to a gym a hand full of times and at one time had a membership. Gyms were always too packed and I always figure if i was getting out of my wheelchair to use a machine the chair would be in people’s way.. Now with a kid of my own and a single full time dad I really felt like i had no time to go and that well, being a chair user I get plenty of upper body exercise.
After a lot of thought today. I do need over all exercise, my legs need a lot and hell it wouldn’t hurt to get in a routine around the house. So starting today it’s 15 mins of walking on my crutches and slowly go from there!! Hey It’s a start!! and we well see where we go from there.
Well today marks the first day of kids returning to school and the end of summer. Back into busy bights and home work and filling out parent forms for the next couple of days… I’s really not that bad of a day, I am updating this right now after all..
My kid is growing up way too fast!
So the neat little cube Ouya is no more… I’d gotten my hands on one years ago to hack and play with.. tons of cool indie games.. I had been meaning to get a newer model but just never got around to it. With steam and Xbox i wouldn’t hardly use it, i go months without using what I have now.. I just don’t have the time to sit down and hardcore game like i used to. I’m lucky if I get a night or a couple hours in..
Now on to the next gadget and gizmo
If your in San Antonio November 13 – 15 at Housecore Horror Festival come find me and say hi….
Might also be in Dallas around Halloween time
And NOLA is still up in the air for this weekend
Other than “that” it’s all the daily grind blah blah blah..
I’ve just recently blasted away and reformatted my computer after a trip to Dallas killed it.. So I lost a lot of footage I was going to post up on here….
To answer a couple of messages, yes I was wearing a gopro in the last post I made.. The plan was to get some pit footage for a friend who was filming for promotional footage of the tour. My friend has seen me go up on crowds many times and said he had enough camera’s that night so if i went up he’d get it and he would use the footage.. and i would have my footage to use as well… the key word was “if” .
I don’t always go up on the crowds.. It’s not something I set out to do, I just let it happen, and well it happened quick. I thought I would go up for a bit and come back down like always and well that didn’t happen! I handed over my footage to my friend and after he uses it in his footage then i’ll post up what i have..
It was Awesome phil pulled me up and you can bet your ass it’s a show i won’t forget.
I don’t make it out to a lot of shows like I used to, but when I do I have a damn good time… #sufthedamnchair
The chair doesn’t always go up, but i have a damn good time in the pit regardless !!!
It’s that crazy time of year again, summer time. Where anything can happen and nothing is off limits. It’s just something about those few months out of the year and just completely change things in your life. Some good and some bad, maybe a mixture of both.
In a mixture of all this, it’s time to hit to road for a bit.. As much as I’d love to shoot across country I think I’ll just make a stop in Dallas this time…
It’s weird.. Since the summer time last year I think i can say life has been on the up and up.. Not with work, but my personal self.. No relationships, flings or anything… All personal self and it felt great. I had forgotten what depression even felt like. But these past couple of days it’s found its way back in and I hate it… I don’t even know what this depression was about, I could just tell it was there..
The one good thing is I can tell it’s headed pretty much out the door and that’s without any personal meditation… at all.. That’s a big deal for me because when it hits it’s hits damn hard. I guess that’s something to be proud of seeing how bad it has gotten in the past.. Guess I’m doing something right after all..
Now on to some sleep for the night
It’s everyday life all up in here. Not much out or the ordinary to blog about… Fun times I tell ya
Do you ever feel that something different is in the air? everything just seems open and you feel aware to everything. For the first time in a long time everything just feels right.
On the outside of that my racing season has started.. No cars are ready haha.. But i didn’t plan on running a full season at one track, I’ve been wanting to travel and try different tracks and just have some fun.
I’ve bought another 79 model vehicle as well, plenty to keep me busy and all while relocating to another shop. Outside of my 8 to 5 job I should stay plenty busy
Played the guitar a good bit today, even pulled out the 12 string…It’d been awhile..
Today I get to stay home with a sick kid, not the ideal off day but at least he is not crazy doctor sick, so on to the post.
I hopped on face book a bit the other day and received a random message “hello” I check for random friends, none. The profile is out of the country..Internet model picture as well.. I figure this would be fun. I get a whole family story and how she re located to Africa.. At this point I still haven’t gotten the send me money and this person is going on a normal conversation for a couple of days..
It gets to the point I’m getting mad because they won’t get to the money part.. I go online to pull up the scammers in that area and it turns out they work the victim a month or two and phone calls before they even get to the money. Well I didn’t have time to play that game. So I sent another picture from the net of the same ones she used and said it’s been fun!
It still wows me that guys all over the world fall for these scams, if its the prince Alia Labumda and his family money or the Sarah that is stuck in a country wanting out.. It’s all the same. I even know an older guy that fell for this.. I pointed it out word for word.. Even surprised him of things or stories I knew because they all work pretty much the same. The guy sent thousands and still refused to believe he was being scammed. I’ve heard a some even being tracked down and “dealt with”
It’s just all sorts of crazy when you think about it
Well today is the Superbowl and will I be watching it? probably not. I mean I can barley remember last years game and who won. I’m all down for going to a bowl party or get together with friends, but outside of that I really just don’t care about the game or the bowl ads that are “MUST SEE” that i’ll be seeing all year long on TV afterwards.
I’m sure i’ll hear all about it tomorrow, and how that half time show was just CRAZY…
What I’ve been up to
