I’m not a Bruce Kulick, Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, or even a Malcolm Young (before tragedy struck him), but I’m pretty damn good for someone with severe brain damage.
I’m composing again, after many years of not.
Why? I suppose it’s because I need to. I have to remain busy in one way or another, while I wait for the Master’s program at University of Phoenix to begin, and this little piece actually took roughly twenty minutes for me to get it nearly to how I wanted it to sound-at least from a structural viewpoint. From an electronic viewpoint, the quality is almost as bad as a Panasonic tape recorder from 1984, but a small computer microphone is what you use when you have to sell used toilet paper on the poor side of town for gas money.
There are two challenges with in regards to composition. The first is remembering the chord progression, since I have the short-term memory of a funnel, and the second is to remember how I wanted it to sound.
There are some things which go through my mind as I listen to this recording loop on my laptop. The first is that this seems to have a raw 1970’s AC/DC sound-back when Bon Scott was still alive. The second is that I’m really surprised that I recorded this on the first take with almost no mistakes.
I don’t understand why the sound seems to cut out at :11 into the recording, because I didn’t move at all, but I guess I’ll figure it out eventually.
The equipment I used for this recording was a Fender Strat Squire, a Peavey Envoy 110 amplifier, and a DOD Hard Rock Distortion FX57, as my Jackson and my Fender acoustic are currently in storage in Irvine, California, along with my Boss DS-1, which I bought in 1985.
The Fender Strat Squire and Peavey Envoy 110 are what you will always hear until further notice whenever I decide to throw one of these recordings on this page.
You, the reader, are probably wondering why I decided to do this. C’mon, man. I can’t do all politics all the time. Even someone like me has to mix it up a bit. In addition, this is further proof that someone with a developmental disability can actually do something and be useful in the world.
Right, Crescent Hardy of Nevada?
Ah, let him burn in Hell. He will soon enough, I’m quite certain.
It’s strange to have the Rams back in L.A.
Even though I’m currently in suburban Denver, I grew up with the Los Angeles Rams-not realizing that they originated from Cleveland and moved to L.A. in 1946 after they won the 1945 NFL championship.
That’s strange, because teams usually move after their fanbase ditches them. These guys moved to Los Angeles not long after they won a world title.
They won another world title as the Los Angeles Rams in 1951, but then came the long drought.
The Rams either made the playoffs or were the laughing stock of the league-and I remember both extremes.
I remember when kids made fun of me in elementary school because I wore Los Angeles Rams’ jerseys; either Jack Youngblood’s 85 or Pat Haden’s 11.
I even got Pat Haden’s autograph when I was 10.
Longtime Los Angeles sportscaster, Fred Roggin, became an accidental commentator while in the course of being a sports anchor when he called the Rams ‘the Lambs’, but recovered beautifully when he said, “Well, they did play like lambs today.”
Hey, he told the truth on that one.
The Rams would either make it to a title game or they would finish near or in dead last, and it was no different when they moved to St. Louis in 1995, when they finished 7-9. The Rams finished 14-2 the season they won the Super Bowl-by one yard. However, they were in quicksand by the time they decided to move back to the beach.
Even as I watch this preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, not much has changed. They’re still the lovable losers-yeah, like I could actually do any better.
I may be in Denver. But, like, I’m from the Valley, dude!
That being stated, I’m glad the Rams-however good or bad-are back in Los Angeles, and I record the games whenever I can.
I guess part of me is still that 10-year-old kid who put on that Rams helmet in my backyard and dove into the dirt as if I were a wide receiver or tight end for Los Angeles.
However, the Rams are currently down to Green Bay 14-3 at halftime.
While a recent Fox “News” poll found that the majority of people in the United States of America view Donald Trump as a divider, Trump supporters claim that the American media is a bigger threat than white supremacists MSNBC reported Friday.
How ironic that is, since it was the members of the American news media which much ado about bullshit about Hillary Clinton’s alleged improprieties (which were later proven to be nothing more than a Republican witch hunt) and boosted the wigged Nazi every chance that they could so they could turn what should have been a Democratic blowout into a contest which Trump stole in the end.
Not only do Trump’s minions blame the right-wing American media for Donald Trump’s impotence , but they also claim that the American media is more dangerous than white supremacist organizations.
Now, that’s pretty far out there.
This is just more proof that the conservative movement in general and the Republican Party in particular has mastered its own reality-which none of us what to be part of.
As President Obama said in a recent speech, “They’ve (the Republican Party) been feeding their base all kinds of crazy for years.”
You are too kind, Mr. President, because decades is a more accurate term.
Bob Dornan (remember that prick?)
The fact that conservatives are now willing to start a civil war to keep this American version of Adolf Hitler in power proves that there is nothing left in the conservative brain.
Every single right-wing talking point has been debunked, from Reaganomics, which shot our national debt into the trillions of dollars to the idea that a strong military means a strong America.
No, America needs the best public schools in the world in order to have the best military in the world.
Furthermore, not every infant is welcomed into this world, as the conservatives claim. Get rid of the term illegitimate and put more money into social programs for single mothers. That’s when we can reevaluate the issue.
We all know that these Fox viewers are trying to blackmail the country into theocratic fascism. That’s bad enough, but it’s even worse when liberals keep telling me that we would be no better than conservatives if we suddenly began to beat the living crap out of these neo-Nazis in the street-like any normal human being would do to someone who is a racist piece of crap and a bastard who punishes a rape victim for her pregnancy-especially since they don’t like paying for prenatal care.
How “pro-life” of them.
Conservatives are not human, so stop treating them as if they are.
Do as I do. Whenever one of these Alt-Right traitors threaten you, just look them squarely in their braindead eyes and answer:
“Bring it, you inbred fuck.”
