Do you think farmers play Farmville? Probably not, since they gotta get up early and maintain a FARM!

However, I can see Mafiosos playing mafia wars. During the down time when they're waiting outside a guys house that they gotta whack. Or when they're hanging out at the docks in the early hours of the morning waiting for deliveries of mafia stuff. Like hair gel and cheap suits. They keep missing out on the shipments of diction, though it seems.

Does anyone else think it's fishy that the "organic" industry sells stuff for real expensive that doesn't keep for more than a couple days, forcing you to buy MORE organic stuff?!?!?! It's a racket, I tell you. Preservatives preserve! How did you miss that concept? Oh, because you don't sell as much product as frequently if it keeps. I got it now. Okay then, good talk.

I've made fun of vegan stuff before, and then I ate a vegan "candy" bar called a Trio. I found out I have some vegan in me.

I saw the new Clash of the Titans and loved it! What a fun movie that was. It wasn't really anything like the original, which I'm assuming made so many people say they hated it. The original was made out of Play Doh. The new one was made out of CGI. They're both awesome. Different stories altogether but a lot of fun. Talk about making it your own.
A lot of times people will cover a song and play it exactly as the original. Others will "make it their own" and put their own spin on it. Either way you do it you'll have haters and you'll have fans. I guess you just gotta do it the way you're happiest doing it (that's what she said)

If you haven't guessed by now, I've been sick and my head is a bit foggy so I dart around. It can make a fun drinking game-"Guess Chad's Next Topic".

When snot comes out and looks like guacamole, you may have a problem.

Ya know what is fun?(not really) Having an itch in your throat that let's you cough all night. Sweetness! What's better is when you finally get to sleep by 2am and your baby wakes up at 4am. SCORE!

I really want to get more tattoo's done.

You know that moment between sleep and consciousness? that fuzzy, warm time? I think THAT is reality. The rest is just expectation, disappointment, happy, sad, work, frustration and energy expulsion broken up by naked time and the occasional cheese cake. Well, maybe not, there's also the times when you see a little person grow and become part you and part them and part clinically insane person. I just try to laugh through it all and look forward to Cheetos.

I have over 400 DVD's and their alphabetized

I wear size 13 shoes in some brands and 12's in others. How is their no standard in the shoe industry? If we can't get cooperation their, how can we expect to achieve world peace?

I don't care what anybody says, google is way better than looking up sh!t in an encyclopedia and it's not a hindrance to our kids. It allows them to more quickly move on to discovering more info.

Quagmire completely destroys Brian the Dog over a steak dinner. It was classic, if you haven't seen it, you're missing out. Here it is: . Completely brilliant.

I love you...

I Had Fun

I got a call from the music director of Carlos Santana's new restaurant, Maria Maria, on Tuesday. I was brought in to play last night (Friday) and have been asked back for the next two Thursdays. There's no part of what I just typed that doesn't kick ass. Last night, I had fun. It was a good sized crowd, a restaurant crowd, which is typically a crowd that is more tuned to talking, not listening. But these people were great.

They pipe me through the whole house and outside to the massive patio. It was a lot clearer out on the patio than inside due to acoustics but still a good time. I look forward to going back and next time, I'm getting some food. The menu looked really good. Everyone I asked said they thought the food was great!

Now, today, I shall spend with my girls and in laws. Finish up a new song I've been working on and the likelihood of me eating donuts is pretty high at this point. It's overcast right now, at 6am. It feels good. The heat will settle in later and we'll all wanna hang out in a cold bath so I'm gonna love this moment.

Tomorrow afternoon I will be performing 4-7 at Hennessey's Tavern in Pacific Beach. If you are in the area, come on by. I gotta song I wanna sing to you

Am I Blue? House of Blues!

So I'm excited because I just booked a date at a place I've wanted to play for a long time... the House of Blues, Downtown San Diego.

It's not on the stage I ultimately want to play on, which is the one downstairs, but it is a chance to get heard there. And they will hear me ;-)

It's September 14th... grab your calendar because you need to be writing this down. I'll wait... you ready yet? Okay, September 14th at 7pm. The Voodoo stage. It is free and it is ALL ages. Bring your babies! But I really want to see your faces in those seats. Please make plans for it.

September 14th, 2010 7:00pm PST

Some Days

Some days seem to last longer than others. It's the whole Einstein-theory of relativity-thing. Anyway, I'm happy to say, that this year is flying by. For multiple reasons. One, watching my daughter grow seems to freeze time while secretly speeding it up in some weird Jedi Mind Trick way. One of the others is because of music.

June was a busy month as was May. A lot of travel and a lot of shows. It was a genuine blessing to be able to perform in all the places that I did and for all the wonderful people that came out for it. From fundraisers to weddings to parties to bar/restaurants to Main Street Concert Series to Singer/Songwriter Day to open mics to the excellent radio time. All the new friends and fans I made along the way make me realize how fortunate I am to be able to do what it is I do.

Thank you all for your love and support! Remember, We Got Love is available on iTunes as is the CoffeehousE RebellioN. Please tell your friends all about it. Word of mouth is what I strive for.

Thank you all so much.

With Gratitude

Agree To Disagree

I have a friend. We don't always see eye to eye. He's one of my favorite people to hang out with because I believe we embody the freedom of speech and the right to our own opinions in a peaceful, friendly state.

From politics to religion to sports, we usually find something to disagree on. But there is something nice about being around someone who isn't going to agree with you solely for the fact that you're friends. It's even nicer to know that we remain friends with our differences. It shows that people can coexist and thrive in the same space without the same mentality.

I'm pretty thankful for this, besides, it keeps you sharp. It also opens your eyes to other viewpoints on things. You just have to be willing to open yourself up to it and listen, as opposed to waiting for your turn to talk.
