Middle-aged Teens & Latex Skin. The 80’s Horror Movies and my love for them!

So I picked up a 4 horror movie DVD pack for a whole $4.99 plus tax. I really broke the bank on this purchase. They were all 70’s & 80’s horror movies and after watching them, it occurred to me that I really enjoy watching these classics more so then today’s horror flicks. The movies included The Funhouse, The Serpent & The Rainbow, Sssssss and Phantasm II.

How I became a musician and not a jock

shutterstock_86483428So I been playing guitar now for about 20 years and piano (yes piano) 25 years. My father, uncle and my late grandfather all play piano and all wrote their own tunes. I would close my eyes and fall asleep as I heard my dad play the piano downstairs in the den. I naturally picked up the piano and like my family I started writing my own tunes when I was about 14 years old.

I ended up playing the bells because it resembled the piano.

When we did have a gig, we would hand make gig sheets and get them photocopied then post everywhere possible. The idea of having connecting online networks never came to mind, since the term “online” wasn’t even a term to be useful to the musician.

The Chaos Theory and what it means to me.

gasmaskSure there is a quote “physics” meaning to the term “Chaos Theory”. In fact you can find quick references to it at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory . If you seen The Butterfly Effect or even Back To The Future, its how the future can be changed from a simple change in the past. Anyway lets get that out of the way for what I want to talk about is what “Chaos Theory” means to me and the band.
