Same Band- New Respect.

Staind.
My hands-down number one "no-one-comes-close" favorite band.
I've loved them for years.
Their sound is unique.
Aaron Lewis has an absolutely amazing voice.
And they dont prance around as if they were God's gift to the world.

Me and Marlee went to see them last night.
Words cannot explain how I felt.
It was all my favorite songs, played live and loud.
It was honestly a defining moment for me.
Years of admiration for their music finally experienced in the flesh.
I didn't want it to end.
I could have stayed there and listened to them play the rest of the night.

I will never forget that performance.
It was all I expected and more.
They ended the show by thanking all their fans.
They said they were honored to have played for us.
What other band does that?
Is that humble and down to earth?
I can't think of one.
And for that I have a whole new respect for them.
For being real people.
Not drugged up rock faggots.
Thank you Staind for a performance that will not soon be topped.

Man's Best Friend.

I'll be blunt...
I have a good life.
A big family who I love spending time with.
A good job that keeps me busy, healthy and pays the bills.
A girlfriend who I love and am one day going to marry.
But there's something missing.
And it has been missing my entire life.
I can honsetly say I have never wanted something more.
Because some things are out of your control.
So you can't force your hand.
Some things you can control,
But you can't force your hand.
I want a dog.
A german shepherd to be exact.
Im excited at the prospect of moving out.
Getting married and doing all that great stuff.
And right up there with getting married is getting a dog.
I don't know what I'd call my dog.
It would depend on his personality.
But I can no longer look at other people with dogs.
It kills me.
It leaves me feeling like I only have one hole left to fill in my life.
Ok well maybe two, the other being a family of my own.
But that can wait.
I want a german shepherd.
Bad.

Say What?

You wanna hear something funny?
I HAVE A BROTHER-IN-LAW.
Is that not just the strangest thing you've ever heard.
It continues to blow me away.
My sister is married.
And I have a brother-in-law.

Congratulations Sabrina and Mirko.
