Whambulance

With the election finally over, I'm amazed at how people are reacting. I've voted for people who didn't win. I didn't riot. I didn't cry.

I realized in four years I'd get to try again, and for the most part, the banks own all the politicians, and it doesn't make any difference any way.

But what is causing this? Is the the “everyone gets a trophy” thing?

What happened to losing gracefully?

Hostile Territory

Chrysler Sign

Today Dave shares his insights from a tip to Michigan where Toyota owners are not exactly welcome. Really? This is how you get me to purchase your car in the future by punishing me?

Then my phone went into roaming….

Chrysler SignWhy is channel 2 in Japanese?

You've got to watch the Netflix show Making a Murderer. It's super interesting and keep in mind:

If you are ever have a legal problem that relies on common sense, YOU'RE SCREWED

The interesting thing is some of the people in this documentary are not that intelligent, and yet

THEY STILL GET TO VOTE.

Chasing the High

Today I share a story about playing an outdoor festival with my band “The $ugar Daddies” on a July fourth weekend. We headlined this outdoor festival. The bad news is nobody had tested the power going to the flatbed truck along with the chasingthehigh300power so that by the time my band took the stage we needed the lights. The bad news as is soon as we turned them on, the power would trip a breaker. The solution? We had to play the indoor stage where there was no air conditioning and it was easy 95+ degrees with the giant holiday weekend crowd. It was one of those nights that everybody was hitting on all points and we just had that groove. Everything was just working.

Then it came time for me to do the Song “Texas Flood” by Stevie Ray Vaughn. This was a song that I just got to “Go Off” on and have fun. To this day, it was like being hit by lightning. I felt what I wanted to play from my toes and it just shot out my fingers. It was awesome. The crowd reacted. It was a feeling like no other. The band lasted a few more years, but we started flipping musicians, playing smaller clubs and we eventually fizzled out. For me, July 4th at the Northside was in the top 5 gigs. Opening for Blue Oyster Cult was another one.

So one of the old trumpet players contacts me and he's trying to get a band together that is close to what my old band played. I've been in so many bands that just didn't work for so many reasons. This sounds promising. I'm a bit nervous as I might get really disappointed. I want that feeling one more time, so I'm going to go chase that high.
