However that wasn't the point of this post! As we were chatting he mentioned he needed to grab one of my CDs to give to someone as a gift. The next part of the conversation was what was interesting so I felt like sharing here.
Friend: I need to grab a CD from you to give as a gift to a friend.
Me: Ok, that's no problem.
Friend: Yeah, they're starting to get to that stage in life where they really identify with your music.
Me: What exactly do you mean by that?
Friend: Well you know the whole "hate their life / hate their job / relationships going badly" stage.
Me: Hahahaha, well that's one way to put it, I guess.
I wasn't sure if I should be laughing, but it did garner that response for some reason. Although my music doesn't seem that serious or dark to me, it's not exactly the first time I've heard how "depressing" it is. To me it's just more "real" than some other stuff out there. I try not to sugarcoat the things I'm going through and I happen to be a writer who is most inspired when I'm having a tough time with life. I seem to just let it out and then I feel better. So anyway, that story stuck in my mind and I told him I would have to write down that quote, so there it is.
Until next time. Take care.

I see so many people who use it for other things like funny videos or stupid prank videos but for me, it's mainly all music. I especially love watching live performances and also cover songs of people singing in their bedrooms just like I do. But tonight I found an artist I really wanted to share with you. This artist is named Adele. She's from the UK and actually has already won a grammy here in the US. However, I don't think she has the mass audience here in the states that she deserves and we haven't heard enough about her.
I'll let the music speak for itself but her voice is especially captivating to me. These two videos below are both live performances and the quality of her voice is outstanding. Take a look for yourself and enjoy.

you are a great musician, found your music one day on youtube and i always check back to see. i am like you just not as good lol. i was just wondering why you arent playing any new shows? and are you ever gonna come to canada? :P
thank you and glad you found me on youtube. I haven't been playing any shows recently as it was busy during the holidays and hard to travel during the winter. I've been to Canada to play at a very remote place once but I would love to someday do a whole tour there. Canadians seem to be very supportive of my music. We'll see what happens.

Despite what so many of the politicians say, their actions tell a different story. This nation was and is supposed to be about the people and ruled by the people. I can't really say that there are many cases where this is evident anymore. Especially on the Federal level. The politicians in Congress care more about making sure the opposing party doesn't "win" than they do about their constituents. There's so much money involved in everything that it's hard to find a place where corruption isn't taking place, even if most of America is unaware of the behind the scenes action.
Whatever your stance is on all of this I'm sure I'm not going to change your mind about what you already believe to be true. And before we get into some huge debate (as I really wasn't intending to start) I'll just leave you with one clip I find interesting from President Obama. This has to do with politicians and their "promises." I can't be foolish and believe for a second that they could fulfill all that they promise when campaigning, but why stretch the truth when you know you won't live up to expectations? Probably because people too easily forget and the "media" doesn't hold them accountable. Here's Obama's "promise" of the FIRST thing he will do when elected.
And don't forget, "you can take that to the bank."
Until next time, take care.
