Entry date: 6-3-2023 – Press Record and Double Check It – Letters to My Friends

Dear Friends,


Doing a little recording later today after a nice relaxing morning. We have been working on some songs for the past several months and today we are going to lay down a couple of demos. It will be great to play music with my friends, for sure.


The tunes are very different than anything I’ve been a part of before. It’s also very fun to just have to worry about playing bass. I’ll probably add a few backing vocals eventually, maybe even today, but I love it when I don’t have concentrate on making words come out of my mouth at the same time as playing new songs. Not that these are difficult bass lines, mind you, but still. It’s fun to just be a part of a much bigger piece of music.


I’m also excited to be able to share these demos, too. I’ve talked with a few of you about this and written a little about it, so it will be nice to be able to share them here. Hopefully in a week or two, Michael will be done mixing them.

I got to watch the Red Sox play today. That was a nice treat. They were on ESPN this morning playing their make up game from last night (rain out). They were down early but came back and won. I won’t make it to Fenway this year, most likely, but I’ll get back there again one of these next couple of years.


If you haven’t been to Fenway, you really should make the trip. It’s the best pro sports atmosphere I’ve been around outside of playoff basketball here in the desert. While I have enjoyed going to the ballpark in downtown Phoenix, it is nothing compared to Fenway. Now that I’m aware of the type of politics that Dbacks owner Ken Kendrick is into, I can’t support him or the team with my $$$. Voting with the wallet is always the most effective way, I think.


Hopefully the Sox can win the night game and sweep the doubleheader today. The Rays are kicking everyone’s ass this year, so far, but it would be awesome to pick up some games on them in early June. The Sox weren’t picked to win anything this year, but their offense has been showing up for games and even the pitching has been pretty decent. Too bad Chris Sale went down again yesterday.

I hope the islanders are having fun today.

The movie Piranha is on right now. It’s so cheesy. It might just be the last great (because it’s so bad) boobsploitation film. Good cameos, though, and a perfect example of how much things have changed in the last 13 years. I doubt this movie gets made now.


But… it is also a great example of how dumb people act. All these idiots jumping into the water after being told that it is not safe kind of reminds me of all the people who jump on the MAGA/Christo-fascist bandwagon, too. I know a lot of them know they are choosing the wrong thing, but they are too dumb to realize that they can think for themselves.


Perhaps they should watch Piranha on a loop for a while.


See you tomorrow.



No piranhas in this water...
