Has anyone seen the latest trend going on with parents today and how they deal with their kids? What I've seen scares me a bit, to say the least. I call it "plug them in and tune them out". I'm in a restaurant the other day and there's a party of eight people at this table. At the end of the table a nine year old kid with headphones on, and hooked up to a computer. What are we thinking people? Your child will never develop any social skills unless they are encouraged to participate in the conversation at the table! Why do these people have kids if they don't want to parent them? Are they just mere props ? My cute little play toy so i can dress them up to look like me thing? Plug them in to a DVD and press enter! Entering no-wheresville!!!!! TV'S in the back of SUVS, distractions for the kids makes it easy to please. But their missing out! Missing the journey waiting to arrive!!! unplug your kids and start talking to these gems they are important thats why you had them in the first place. Right?

Lay down your pride
Let go your anger
Shake the hand with history behind it
Walk away so you can return
Respect from where you've once been burned
Strange things have happened
True friends will follow
Tabs on the few
Open to you
I'd like to think it's over
So we can start up again
I want to get back to writing
Making history begin
I'll take you out for a drive
Take you out for a spin
Make it the most
Until I see you again
Here's a new song About a friendship. It's new!

"The worst thing that being an artist could do for you would be that it would make you slightly unhappy constantly" I love this quote reminds me of someone! J.D. Salinger. Lets talk about celebrities today. The condition of being famous can certainly turn into a condition for some if not most. What i mean is how many famous people become famous for something other than what got them there in the first place. The mystery of what it is to be famous is long gone with todays technology. Any affair, thing, or person that presents features or qualities so obscure as to arouse curiosity or speculation. GONE I TELL YOU! What it means to be famous today is changing. Technology has sunk it's claws in so deep and as a result, has exposed the greatest thing: Our idea of what fame is and our perception of what we thought fame should be. We hold these people up so high and most are just overexposed until the next new guy steps up. Disposable Heros is what I like to call them! True masters of their art don't have to talk. I Wish more celebrities would just shut the hell up and do something great for someone. Today! I will leave you with another favorite quote by J.D. Salinger : "I'm sick of just liking people. I wish to God I could meet somebody I could respect"

I could show you how and help you to be more of an individual than you are now, and against society defend your individualism. But yet if you are so much of an individual that you don't want anybody to show you, I will stand aside and let you be an individual by yourself with nobody showing you how, if you will also do that for me.
Where do you stand? Are you plugged in or plugged out? With all the websites,blogs,chat rooms, and internet interactions we are still losing touch with each other. We are so connected were disconnected in many other ways. If you walk into any cafe around the US of A you will see laptops open and heads down buried in cyberspace. In the realm of electronic communication there are great things happening but in my humble estimation we've gone too far. Lets come back a little, I don't know about you folks out there but I like hearing a real human voice on the other end of the phone. Remember when we didn't have cell phones we were alright and we kept it in the moment. We can't have a conversation with someone on the street for too long without getting interrupted by some kind of cell phone activity. Human interaction is what I believe truly makes people happy so the next time you walk into a cafe strike up a conversation with someone. It might take you a while or you might get some strange looks but in the end you might make some ones day.

Does anyone notice how people just don't listen to each other any more? Everyones just talking over each other, non stop, can't get a word in, mouthful, stuff it down, motoring lips and burning rubber. We all have our own agendas this is true but for gods sake can we start to consider someone else's opinion for a second? PEOPLE JUST WANT TO VENT and there needs not to be a solution to their problem. My grandmother told me once the people who listen are the people who learn. Next time your in a conversation think about this and see how long you can sit there and listen to someone. Don't say a word just listen, don't offer your opinion, don't give advice just stop STOP YOURSELF!

Spoilers: A candidate who has no chance of ultimate victory but does well enough to spoil the chances of another. This one's for all the people in the service industry! Being a chef part of your job is provide=ing a nice experience for the guest and believe me we try our best. You work anywhere from 10 to 15 hour days, trying to create something wonderful and that's why you do it. Not to mention being creative and running a business. In come the yelpers!!!! the food police!!!! and because they're all extremely sophisticated and well mannered. Lets define the word Sophisticated for a second: A person, ideas, tastes, manners, etc. altered by education, experience, etc, so as to be worldly-wise: not naive. News flash to all you prima donna's every meal out to a nice restaurant will not be a mind blowing experience, a hard-on lasting longer than five hours call your doctor right now kind of thing! Your lucky to have the opportunity to live and eat out in the first place! There are people that make food and there are people who write about food enough said!

Worrying we all do It to some degree but why? It's a total waste of time and does no good, but still we manage to pencil him in. He's always on time these days with the world being in the state it's in. So at least you won't have to worry about that! Do you ever notice that things have a way of working themselves out? You've heard people say this right? but what about young people who die young? Is that some sort of working out? I'm confused about that, but moving along we have to stay focused on the worry trophy. If your going to lose your hair or go grey you might as well have something shinny to show for it! Stand up and do some living right now! Contrary to what they say the man with the most trophies doesn't win, he just has a lot dust on everything...

Compassion is the word of the day! Can everyone say Compassion? Let me hear you say it. When you say the word compassion it's like throwing a kiss to the air. Your lips will pucker like they pucker when you throw a kiss. Let's start by throwing a kiss to the people in Haiti. No matter what you believe in no matter what religion you belong to pain and suffering is universal. It seems to me that through all of our differences we should at least be able to understand that! We don't have to agree, we don't have to smile, we don't have to talk, we don't have to do anything to solve a problem. Compassion is having sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune. Religion is heart and every religion wants to beat just as hard as all the rest so why don't we just let them. Without judgment, comparison, or wanting to be Right...

TV I mean come on i every time i turn it on there's nothing but shit! And when i mean shit i mean negativity, every day we are inundated with negativity. I'm surprised I can even get up in the morning without taking a gun to my head these days. Let's talk about NPR national public radio for starters. I want to be informed on current events, be in the know but damn is this station fucking depressing! Everywhere in the world right now some fucked up shit is going down and most people are just out shopping for some stupid shit they don't really need. Of course I'm guilty of this kind of shenanigan's too!! stay clear! steer away from shenanigan's. The other day driving to work, It's early, too fucking early for me but whatever. I'm listening to NPR and in some country I can't even pronounce this guy was tortured, stoned and set on fire while still alive. Sick fucking people in this world! Accountability ?? No one today is accountable for there actions! Politician's, pimps, priests, pedophile's and there's a lawyer for everybody. Pat Robertson millionaire evangelist just the other day said the earthquake in Haiti was the children's fault cause of all that voodoo they practice down there! It's Karma he says! what a dumb fuck! Take the religion out of schools take art out of the budget, screen the passengers at the airport! fuck it let's all fly naked and to hell with the terrorists. Why do people care about so much bullshit today?? People ask me how's your day going? and when i say great, they look at me funny as if there's something wrong. But really their looking for something to be wrong so they can relate. Without drama people have no connection to each other today! Can we be blamed?
