There are so many things I accept on a daily basis
ignore their natural wonder
the awesomeness of the whole thing
walking around on a giant sphere
breathing this oxygen into my lungs
having thoughts
understanding only a fraction on the entire thing
knowing that I need to put this water in my mouth and swallow it
eating food
sleeping and waking back up.
love death
war hatred laughter
the fucking sun
a giant ball of fire burning down and giving life to everything
the moon
the ground
the ocean
sub atomic particles existing in 2 places at once
me existing in a hundred places at once in my head
being aware of myself
and my life
Its all so goddamn strange if I really stop and think about it
instead im worried about trivial shit
paper fucking money
imagine if half of america just decided not to agree that this paper has any real value
and chose not to accept it as a currency
because really at the end of the day and given the right situation
toilet paper is more valuable than a 100 dollar bill
instead im worried about my rent
i wonder where my landlady gets all the money for her construction projects and new tv's then I check my wallet
and her dog still barks at me and chases me to my door
but lets keep this rant positive
thats what I mean
cant get caught up in the bullshit
but once in a while I walk in the rain
and hear a really good song
and I feel ok
and I feel alright in the world
alright in the vast cloudy mist
and the mystery
and it makes sense just for a moment

What a F$^%$ Week!

Thats all I can say. It all worked out in the end.
Sometimes it takes some real dark moments to see all the people who care about me and what I am doing.
Thanks to everyone who kept me in their hearts, minds, and prayers.
Thanks for the phone calls, emails and texts!
The last 2 DKM shows were a blast.
The way I look at it is, it was 7 shows, like the World Series. I got injured and missed three of them. I came back for the last 2. I won 4 out of 7. Thats good enough for the World Series.
Oh and by the way
Being sick in bed on a Saturday night, unable to even really speak because my voice is so gone, having had to cancel the 2 shows that day, shows that included The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and not knowing if I would even be able to do any of the remaining shows, REALLY FUCKING DEPRESSING. Getting a phone call from The Dropkicks to come in and play guitar and harmonica on Badlands anyways and then doing it with one of the Bosstones. Priceless.

To do list.

Things to do in my life....
1. Join the Dropkick Murphys onstage for their version of the Springsteen classic "Badlands" and play the harmonica where the sax part is. CHECK!

Philly was awesome. Thanks to Matty V for driving me there and helping out backstage.

Thanks to Dropkicks for having me on the bill!
Looking forward to The House of Blues this week.

Here are a few pics from Philly.
