Back in California, back to where I belong...

Writer with a love for Rock music. Everything from Chuck Berry to Buckcherry. Ramones to Rammstein. Avril to Alter Bridge. Not only do I play it, but I study it and live it. Nothing puts me in a better mood than playing any of my 4 guitars and basses...Well maybe a nice, cold beer and a cheeseburger. Feel free to ask me anything at all, recommend good new music, new bands or anything you just want to share. Tell me your stories. I look forward to hearing it.

Got some botched color work fixed up today. The artist was able to turn the screwed up piece into an Abbey Road record. Had a few other things added as well ;)

Why don’t you want your friends at the bar?

So I recently started working at a new bar/restaurant that doubles as a music venue also. It’s a really cool spot and I work with some awesome people. Everything has been going pretty well so far and I have no complaints. A couple days ago our GM ask us to help drum up business by getting the word out and bringing our friends here. Not hesitating I said “Not my friends”. I didn’t realize I said it out loud because I was kinda spacing out before then, but he responded “Ken, you don’t want your friends here?”. I snapped to and said “Hell no! They’re assholes” which it seemed took him by surprise.

I’ve worked as a bartender for the last 5 and a half years back in New York

I have experienced this firsthand. Sucks, but that’s life. I refuse to settle for mediocrity.

I’m so happy with the way my songs are sounding. There’s is still much work to be done on my “Songs from California” EP, but it’s what I love to do and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I am still looking for guest singers, so if there are any vocalists/Guitarists in the San Diego area interested in being featured on a completely self-produced album, inbox me and we’ll talk. Otherwise, keep an eye out for updates.

The arrogance….

image

So I just saw this little gem pop up on my Facebook news feed. At first I had no words, then I got mad. As somebody who was born and raised in New York City, now living in California, I can say with absolute conviction that this sentiment is total arrogance. To insist that New York City is SO GREAT, SO FUCKING WONDERFUL, that even on the worst of days there, it’s still better than anywhere else. How fucking idiotic! How delusional!

What would you think of a person who went around with this view of themselves? You’d probably say they were pompous, narcissistic or some other colorful adjective.

New York City, Queens in particular, will always be where my roots are; but I left for a reason…many reasons actually. I happen to think it’s a crap city with crap people, but that’s just me.

This is what my bad days here look like:

I’ll take this over a great day in NYC anytime!

Why do you take gym selfies?

Why do people take selfies at the gym? Why do they post them?
If you’re at the gym, good for you. You’re doing more than most Americans, but if you’re there shouldn’t you be more focused on getting and keeping in shape? Or are you really there to take narcissistic images of yourself “being active” in an attempt to try to impress others on the internet? Because let’s be honest, most people who take gym selfies look fresh. No sweat, hair neat, fresh clothing. Seriously why are you taking a picture? Looks like you haven’t done shit there. And do people even care about the pictures other people post of themselves online. Never once have I seen one and said “Oh wow, this particular selfie that Jane Doe posted is totally original and different from the hundred other gym selfies she’s posted. She looks awesome even though she looks fresh and clean despite her caption saying ‘getting my sweat on’”. Are you so insecure that you require the approval and “likes” of other people to feel good about yourself? Also do you not have any friends or hang out in any kind of social situations where pictures are taken, so you have to resort to taking pics of yourself? I just don’t get it…
