Where You Live is Strange

Did you know?

In Fayetteville, you live about 20 miles below Bunn Level?

But ironically, about an hour and half south of Bottom?

Course, you also live about 500 miles over Hill and Dale, Florida.

We are about 4 hours west of Due West, South Carolina.

Just when you might have thought our name was boring, you might realize that the people of Townsville, NC were really less inventive.

Course, they might be even more interesting than the people of Boring, Oregon.

We can probably suspect those folks have a better time then the people of Bummerville, California.

You could try and stay even keel like the people of Normal or Ordinary, Kentucky which are both about two hours from Hell for Certain, Kentucky, or perhaps you are more like the residents of Looneyville, Texas?

To go back to Start, you need to head 800 miles west in Louisiana, but you have two Last Chances, one in California and one in Colorado.

Our crime rate has not earned us a Murder Bay, but Washington DC has one!

At least Fayetteville, makes sense.

Somehow, Pennsylvania has its own Jersey Shore, even though it is no where near it!

New Jersey got its revenge though. Who else has a Cheesequake?

Don’t believe me? Look it all up in Index, Virginia.

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
