Thoughts on Tonight’s Show 1/25/14

Thoughts on tonight’s show. Trance and Dance, Eric Wennerstrand, and Stone Soup at Frank’s Power Plant.

I think it went well, especially the Trance and Dance Band part. Thankfully a lot of people made it out. Who knows how many more shows we will have.

The rest of the show didn’t have a sizeable audience except for family members and a couple stragglers but that was fun anyway although at points it felt like band practice just at a different venue.

I think the bar had a decent night because a lot of people came in after a show let out at a different bar and Trance and Dance brought a decent crowd so that was good.

Someone told me I wasn’t going anywhere unless I gained self-confidence and I think there is a lot of truth to that statement.

Everyone there is really friendly and I enjoy going to shows at Frank’s Power Plant.

Also I believe some money was raised for www.riverwestradio.com but we shall see what the final count is. Sleepy did an excellent job of fundraising.

Bipolar Nation

The extreme left wants everybody to have healthcare or maybe wants us all to be nearly equal.

The extreme right wants people to die if they can’t afford health care or food for that matter. Because everything is perfectly fairly doled out according to what each deserves, nobody is overpaid or underpaid. Everybody gets exactly what they earned and deserve. So if you’re poor you should suffer. You made your bed, sleep in it. What a horrible ideology and belief system.

Mountain Stream ( Parachute )

Mountain Steam ( Parachute )

Like a parachute to take me home.

From your billowy skirt to the ground I go.

I see mountains above.

Filling me with a sense of love.

I feel the wet stream and I drink of thee.

Like a parachute to take me home.

It opens up to touch the ground I go.

I see mountains and valleys up above.

Filling me with a sense of love.

I am stricken, Don’t know what to do.

Can I touch a beauty so pure and so true?

Am I worthy to take it in?

Or will she be polluted by another man?

My New Song, Parachute

https://archive.org/details/ParachuteII

Like a parachute to take me home
It opens up to touch the ground I go
I see mountains valleys up above
Filling me with a sense of love

I am stricken. Don’t know what to do.
Can I touch a beauty pure and true.
Am I worthy to take it in?
Or be polluted by another then.

Can I let her walk on by?
Will I do it ’til the day I die?
I think back to remember when
On some day I did it again.

Tires in the ocean. Fish in the sea.
Do unto others what you do to me.
Some kind of bible. To take it on home.
To give you a hint what to do on your own.

Like a Ferris wheel way up high.
You spin me round I wave the ground bye bye.
I see all the people down below
Wondering Should I let it go.

Guitar Solo:
Chorus:

F///Am///F///C//G//
F///Am///G///F///

Chorus:
F///Am///G///F///
F///Am///G///F///

Rainbow Community – Creativity – Ease of codes/structure

Rainbow Community

Capitalism and Competition do accomplish great things. Getting the best talent together to work on the most complex and amazing projects is a great service to humanity.

Socialism in society assures that people will be fed and healthy. Disease will not spread rampantly through the community because of neglect. It assures a basic level of security and implies a basic level of understanding of the qualities of human nature. People are not generally a group of lazy sloths. People who appear to be doing nothing are probably doing quite a lot and getting no credit for it. A lot of things people do cannot be monetized yet are very, very important. We can have a basic level of trust in humanity at this point and guarantee that peoples’ basic needs are met.

We have reached a point where we can have both. We can have the achievements that modern Capitalism allows for and the security and health that Socialism can provide.

We need a more moderate and creative society anyway. We need less strict codes and more creative ones. People should get together and get creative. What other forms of habitat, business, and entertainment can we come up with? Instead of black ink on white paper how about some colors?

Tent communities
Money free zones

You name it, let’s consider it.

Allow for permitting for these types of things and more.

Genetically Modified Organisms – Unhealthy and Immoral

GMO’s, It’s All About Money

Corporations and companies can’t patent natural life so in order to be able to patent a crop to make tremendous amounts of money off of it they must alter it genetically and then they can patent it. The main motivator in genetically modifying organisms seems to be to patent them to make money off of them.

This is one way that our extreme individualistic themed society is creating a warped set of values. It overvalues individual achievement and it undervalues the achievements of general members of society as a whole. Just because one person came up with something and patented it does not mean that other people would not have been able to do the exact same thing.

Corporations first tested the water of this principle with rbgh or bovine growth hormone. We had no need for more milk, in fact prices were already too low and milk over production caused farmers to dump out milk because the price was too low for them to make any money off of it. The hormone made the cows sick and unhealthy.

Patents in America are valid for extremely long periods of time as well so this has a tendency to stagnate innovation contrary to what the extreme individualist capitalists believe.

That is how GMO is all about money. It doesn’t really have any positive benefit to society but they cannot patent natural life so they have to create GMO’s so that they can patent them and then make major profits from them.

In fact this practice is promoting an unhealthy method of farming with limited genetic variation in the crops being grown. A much healthy method of farming would be to use a wide variety of plants with natural genetic diversity and utilize co-growing of varieties of plants in concert to enhance plants abilities to naturally defend against pests and sicknesses.

GMO has no value. It is playing god. We cannot improve upon nature. Mistakes will be made that could be come difficult or impossible to fix.

Coding php and life

Two things:

First coding php.

I’m finding there’s a lot to coding php but you just take it one step at a time. You do a little bit, make sure you are organized and moving in the right direction and then accomplish what you can bit by bit. There’s a lot to it so it’s going to take some time. You can’t do it all at once because processing everything that goes into a website is complex. There is a tediousness to it because you just have to account for every little detail. A lot of it seems like it is not particularly difficult but it is just a lot of work and organization making sure you account for every little thing and catch every little instance of this, that, or the other.

Now life:

I think in life we just need to take the blessings that are offered to us sometimes and not feel like we are in control and can choose exactly what we want. Perhaps this is more relevant to me because I am more of the desperado sort if you have ever heard that song by the Eagles. “It seems to me some fine things have been laid out on your table but you only want the ones that you can’t get.” That is why I am telling myself and perhaps it is pertinent to others also that I should accept the blessings that life sends my way and not feel like I have to be in control or even can be. I will just accept the blessings life bestows on me. This attitude I think takes the pressure off anyways and it is an optimistic attitude. There is always some new opportunity if I do not run from it.

Anyways I have really tried to improve lately and correct some errors I have made in the past and hopefully the work is paying off. I now have some projects to work on in my spare time that I really enjoy. If I could make web design my permanent job that would be excellent so I need to continue to practice and develop my skills with that, which I am. I am also looking for administrative assistant type work because I have experience in that, there is less but still quite a bit of competition, and I need to pay the bills in the meantime.

Cheers.

I feel good today.

After last post I feel like I should say something positive. I had a good time last night and I have met some really good people lately so things are going well. I think it is important to remain optimistic because a bad attitude can kill you before you start. If you don’t believe you will succeed or you have a bad attitude people will sense that and like a mirror it gets reflected back on you. So if you start out something with that kind of attitude you are more likely to fail at what you are attempting. So give yourself a fighting chance and stay positive.
