15 on the 15th – In my Tennessee mountain home, crickets sing in the fields near by

So I’m trying a different style for this Tennessee playlist. Consider The Civil Wars as a trailer for the rest of the CD, where all the other songs play out the story from song 2 to 14. Notes written below each video are just for amusement. 

The Civil Wars

Quick Notes: Originated in Nashville, tragically disbanded in 2014. TRAGICALLY. Hopefully one day they’ll get back together and go for that fifth Grammy… Continue reading 15 on the 15th – In my Tennessee mountain home, crickets sing in the fields near by

Deep Meaningful Procrastination!

My YouTube list of delaying productivity.

I wanted to write an action update. But then I fell into a YouTube black hole for all of the hours and decided to type this out instead. Because reasons.

There’s an amazing amount to be learned from hearing both sides of an argument, when both are willing to be open and honest and real. Continue reading Deep Meaningful Procrastination!

Is Arkangel a Replacement God for the Next Generation of Parents?

S 4:E02 Synopsis: ‘Worried about her daughter’s safety, single mom Marie signs up for a cutting-edge device that monitors the girl’s whereabouts – and much more.

Ostensibly, this is a story about an overprotective parent suffering the natural consequences of that parenting style taken to its logical extreme.

15 on the 15th: Ohio is for Lovers

Home to the Buckeyes and a  notably non-rectangular US state flag. One of a kind, isn’t it?

Andy Black/Biersack/Sixx is Black Veil Brides’ only original member and he is originally from Ohio. I just got to see these guys live last Thursday at The Fillmore here in Denver. They put on one hell of a show. Continue reading 15 on the 15th: Ohio is for Lovers

Reblog Wednesday: Ever thought about your legacy?

What if a doctor told you that you only had a few months left to live? When Randy Pausch, computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he decided to leave a powerful and timeless legacy. He delivered an inspiring last lecture at Carnegie Mellon (which was videotaped) and even wrote a […]

Really great summary of a lecture given 10 years ago: “Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”. Worth the read and the listen!

15 on the 15th – Almost Like Praying

Puerto Rico is still suffering. That’s 3.5 million American citizens still suffering, and despite concentrated efforts, the Island Of Enchantment has raised less support than its fellow stricken lands of Texas and Florida, so… I made this. I figure it can’t hurt and I’m thinking about the island all the time anyway. I know PR isn’t a state, so this is technically deviating from the 15ths’ initial intent, but, oh well.

Here goes: Continue reading 15 on the 15th – Almost Like Praying
