Give me one reason….. that I shouldn’t blog about the first thing I recorded in a professional studio!

I was just 18 when I recorded this.  It was a pretty cool experience at a time in my life when I needed expression and creativity (kinda like now!).  There is a tension, though, as I wanted to sound stylish and slur my words just a little, but then that is at the sacrifice of enunciation.  The Sophie’s choice of singing, I guess.  Take a listen:

Oh, and here’s the email that my guitar teacher, Frank Keim sent me.  I feel comfortable sharing his contact info because he IS still in business.

I wouldn’t be the musician that I am today without him.  Truth!

Just got another convert

to Google Docs! (though sadly now it’s all called “Drive,” which is NOT my favorite word in the world)

This is Todd.  Remember him?  Loads more to come about this guy, but for now, I’m glad I could bring him into the sweet spot of writing collaboration that IS Google Docs.  Dayan would be so proud.

Lawyer Stereotypes….

Lawyers get a bad name.  Sleezy lawyer jokes; we’ve all heard them!  Anyways, my father defies all of those.  He was a lawyer, but is also a scriptural/doctrine heavyweight.  And he’s stayed true to God all these years.

Think Atticus Finch, ya’ll.  Love ya Dad!

PS.  A few years ago, there was an article written in the BYU Alumni magazine about this kind of idea of lawyers not being sleeze-bags.  It was called “In Search of Atticus Finch” based on an idea by Mike Papantonio.  I can download it as a PDF, but don’t know how to attach it to this blog.  If you are interested, google it!

The glorious fusion of skinny-dipping and complete privacy/chastity….

NOTHIN’ BETTER THAN THAT!

And no, no picture this time.  Temple recommend/employer-friendly/grandmothers reading, that kind of thing.  Plus I don’t have any and do NOT want to google that, know what I mean?

Hierarchy of Digital Communication

There is a hierarchy of what is generally considered appropriate in the levels of communication.  I don’t mind giving my email out to most people.  Then if people know your full name they can find you on Facebook, and depending on how comfortable you are, you can choose to accept their friend request or not.  I along with many others won’t give my phone number out freely.  And address?  No way, Jose!  But yes, email I am quite comfortable with.

But here’s the funny thing:  IT’S EASIER TO REACH ME VIA EMAIL THAN PHONE!  Actually, scratch that, text and email are probably about equal.  Rest assured, I DO pick up the phone, listen to my messages, call people back (employers, I’m talking to you!)  And generally, I do a pretty good job of keeping in touch with people, getting back to them, etc.  I just find it interesting that “phone” kinda seems to be the VIP form of communication, but this girl ain’t that into it…

The most important thing in the world (or my life)?  Nowhere near close.

Awesome nonetheless?  Fo shizzle!
