Guitar Quest, Day 292: Channeling My Inner Otis

Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay with a Little Tenderness



Universally Cool

A burst of light, a giant pane, reflection on thoughts unregained, acknowledgement of a neglible loss, not overshadowed by a cost, mental but not unphysical, the waving of leaves to and fro, in random unison they say good try, but the sunset does not blink its eye, the weary one he recharges again, in hopes of reaching the betterland, the music though reminds anew that it is not up to me and you, wave and toss and flail about, the universe has it all figured out, acknowledge and move on he says, he knows far more than many men, the night will pass, the day will come, and we will see what happens then, and if we are wrong and they are right will it change this very night, I doubt such to be the case, so I will smile and nod my head and remember that which will always be true, there is a you for me and a me for you in a universe that invariably knows what is true, so be cool now and be cool then, in hopes that you’ll be the before and now and then who has bucked the trend, befriended (wo)men and quietly, gently and genuinely become…

…Universally Cool

I am.

I haven’t posted because I, simply, am.

The Importance of Doing Things

Whatever your thing is, do it. Do it openly and proudly. Do it to the greatest extent possible and only consider holding back if the doing of your thing starts to infringe on other peoples’ doing their thing.

Be open to the changing of things. One day you may do one thing, but the next day you may do another thing. You may also do multiple things at the same time. As long as you do each thing freely and to the best of your ability, things will be fine.


If you find that your thing hurts others, find a way to change your thing for the better. If you cannot find such a way, find another thing. Things are, after all, abundant.

Do not try to do someone else’s thing simply because it appears to be better, more fun or more emotionally, financially or otherwise lucrative than your thing. If at some point, though, it feels like your thing and someone else’s thing are the same thing, do it together. If things start to change, happily go back to doing your own thing together, because doing your thing doesn’t mean you have to be alone.

The Universe is made up of an infinite number of things. These things are there for us to choose from and do. Find yours. Do it. If everyone does, things will be cool.

I am a Microsoft Paint Artist

….or just a truly bored geek.

Deep Question: If it’s done in MS Paint, is it really art?


Pearl Jam’s ‘Black’….

…picked up at the second verse and with frogs and an NBA game in the background.



On Day 28, I went Syd Barrett on the guitar. Of this, I am unashamed.


#OneWord365 2014: #Rock

In 2014, I will #Rock:


…and whatever else is good, right and just.

In summary, I will #Rock 2014.

‘Twas the Night before a Bitchin’ Christmas

In living tribute to a great friend of mine, I rewrote (or ruined) the Christmas classic. Right or wrong, I am pretty proud of the result.
