Hats off to Gary Holt

for voicing his stance on trump in a disagreement with Tom Araya. It truly is the end of Slayer for me anyway. Which Slayer was a beautiful cause of intrigue

I have a lot of feelings about this and yet I’m not a critic. But in saying  This subject was very pivotal and very special to me and my youth, and now as an old man the news is bitter Sweet

I saw Exodas During the Toxic Waltz Fabulous Disaster Era and Yes I had a great Time

I will always have respect for Gary and Dave Lombardo especially.  For He in my opinion is the greatest Drummer ever.

I wish everyone else in the band a wonderful life no matter our politics. but I ask. although we get older and yes more conservative than we realize. but do we have to be weirder caricatures of our parents?  Gary-Holt

Just Chillin listening to Goth Metal

Goth Metal at 4 in the morning after daylight savings goes forward.

Go Forward young man to save the light?

I watched the Shape of Water with the wife last night we loved it. I’ve been quiet lately been watching the tube working with some water color eventually I want to make my own album covers

I’m overhauling my studio space to expand it to record to paint. I got bags and bags of art Markers. and I’m getting Japanese brush pens tomorrow in the mail. Sweeet!!! 

Its to feel in control of the music which when in my twenties my friend had all the equipment and he wouldn’t let me touch anything he had a great set up He even had a Adat Recorder and a drum machine cake walk.

He got all this stuff and by 1995 he stopped  and did nothing He got all this money trust fund baby.

Long story short I have my own equipment my Own Label I release whenever I want

that’s why its important that you buy my newest album I’ve been working on my dream from 1990 I’m going be 48 years old but I’m happy its bitter sweet. I’ve been evolving in this cocoon trying to finally make a mark  Follow me on spotify I get paid if you listen

all these people in places I can’t pronounce on my states and I don’t whose in Columbus Ohio whoever you are Thank You!

SYD BARRETT

Laugh if you must, but as I sit here listening to Cannibal Corpse  I remember Back in the day I was on a quest to find 

 the Heaviest band The fastest the meanest and toughest to listen

I guess I needed some thing to vent an undefinable frustration.
but because of the Myth that i was reminded of This Person Was Syd Barrett. The Legend that was creator of Pink Floyd. Now I liked the Floyd. I was was even fan David Gilmour
Solo work. Great Guitar Player but I never heard Barrett version of Floyd. I only heard the wall and several albums that lamented the Absence of Syd from the from the group. He was still alive and the stories about what happen to him was pure Gossip some true some just stupid and just mean. with that said 30 years ago I went into a record store which i miss and I found a double album of both Syd Barrett albums. Not sure what to expect.  I bought it. back the hunt and find in a record store was an adventure I miss so badly
so I get it home I put it on my turn table. which the process is barbaric by todays standards. but I loved it. Now the music didn’t go 500 miles an hour and earth didn’t shake or the speakers didn’t fall apart. instread what i heard was dreamy happy. something effortless that i remember my first impression I had this unguarded smile the took over and literally  the hairs on the back of my neck raised when  He sang “Well oh Baby MY Hairs on end about YoUUUUUUUUU!!”  I played both albums stunned I never heard anything like before in my life.  Now 30 years later I would say my fascination with Syd is based that I have come to the conclusion that Syd Barrett was a Haunted Man. This is not my fact I came to this theory after Watching an episode of Electric Dreams based the short Stories. I just saw the 3rd Episode and It opens to Steve Bushemi waking to a song by Syd Octopus Ride. Which I was not recording and I though maybe Pink Floyd refused to allow the song be used for movies.

Not sure why they used this song or the reference to play it 3 times beginning middle and end.  I read 2 biographies about Philip K Dick it seemed to be straightforward Classical music.
the ending is very ironic because it ends with Steve Buscemi being kicked off a Boat holding his favorite record. the irony is according to the first book He divorced his first wife for throwing his Records out the Window. I’m sure that there was other reasons but the Icing on the cake.  I guess the point of this is how our tastes in music is shaped.
