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!

He may be angry, obscene, and even hateful at times….

but there is no denying that Eminem has incredible talent, especially when it comes to wordplay.  He also does a pretty good job articulating his beliefs about words and language to Anderson Cooper.  This clip is intelligent and fascinating.  Check it!

Teachers, take note (do I say that too much?)!

#mixed feelings about ombres, particularly because I do not know exactly how to pronounce them

#I may have an ombre, but what I really want is an HOMBRE!

#too lazy and cheap to get your roots retouched?  just pass it off as the latest hair fad!
