  The closer we get to the end of the year, the crankier I get... ha! Probably because I have too damned much on the brain.

  See, everyone has wishes and wants, but if they aren't what people approve of, they aren't acceptable. Dumb. I feel that, if your wishes and wants aren't harmful to others, you should have, but if it's at the cost of others, no. I am not meaning that feelings hurt or offending thing spoiled entitled people think is ok to shove down my throat ... that has just gotten completely out of hand, and you see it all over the place... I mean if it actually is going to do someone actual harm, then no... there are certain things that sick in the head people should not be allowed and not have "the right" to do... but if someone actually likes a song, a food, a tv show... let them ffs...... there is too many people thinking they are physically being attacked by things we never thought twice about years ago.

  See, no one gives a crap if *I* am offended by watching this all happen. Is that right? No. I am not entitled to the right to be offended because YOU don't like a song (we will pick a song for now, given all the hoopla over one lately). That's right. No one cares if I am offended. I am part of that eye-rolling crowd that checks out their own butt every time something like this happens. We are offended because we are sick of hearing whiney babies bitch. You don't care about anyone but yourself, and I have to listen, even though your personal opinion on anything you don't like offends me, and people like me, who don't care what you don't like. We have things we don't like.. are we allowed to voice an opinion? No. Some twit will get offended...

  You see where I am going with this? Insane, ain't it. Can't we just try to get along, and make the world better for ALL... not just a chosen few? If this is too much to ask, we are doomed.... and you all know it.

  I will see you on the airwaves... where the music makes more sense... or does it? LMMFAO....

3 Dec. 2018

   Yeah, kind of got busy. Last entry was mid-November, and I apologize for that. Just getting things sorted out for everything that is happening and deciding what I want to do with some things.

  A lot of things have changed lately, and I will admit to scrambling to catch up. One thing, is finally getting truck show pictures where the drivers will see them, plus exciting shows (Gord Bamford at Big Texas (a CDC Entertainment show) in Niagara Falls on Nov. 22nd, Forgotten Rebels (with The Lucky Ones) November 24th at Warehouse (an Up Yours Productions show), and Sven Gali at The Rockpile this past Saturday (a Rock 'n' Roll Heaven Toronto reunion show), the 30th of November... to name a few). This busy also includes my usual Wednesday night shows on now what is Surgery Records Radio (more in a bit) as well as pics, and family stuff going on.

  The holidays are fast approaching, too, which means festive parties, gifts, and other cool shows happening well into the new year. I got a good idea of how to get it all done, but my best laid plans have had a way of going astray lately.

  I bit the bullet and now am running Windows 10, and along with that comes one hell of a learning curve.... plus new photo programs (which I still am not telling anyone about... haha), various social media tools, still organizing my files, and getting ready to reformat my beloved "Workhorse" (a computer I have had for a while... but still rocks). Need to get a few more things off of it, even though it is not online right now, but it'll get done. I couldn't wait, had to be done, and took matters into my own hands. Next is updates to my SmugMug and You Tube channel...

  I am looking for some down time soon, too, and I am still wanting to shoot ships in the other ditch. Call it my hobby... but I love those huge ships, almost as much as trucks!

  Annnd... speaking of trucks, on the agenda for next year, besides the music, is 4 truck shows I will be attending (1 in June, 2 in July and one is, I think, in August) which will test me in many ways, but that won't matter. Diesel fumes... yeah, I'm weird... I like them!

  RBX radio has now become Surgery Records Radio, under the guidance of Dr. John and his label, Dr. Johns Surgery Records. That's right... moving a great direction for indie music and independent musicians. Things are still being sorted that way, but the shows will go on as always.... and I am looking forward to it! This week is a listening party for HUH?'s "Damaged Goodz", released this past Friday, on many platforms. Check out their Facebook for more details. Their CD release party was this past Friday (Nov. 30th) at Detour, with local support Eklectik & The Midnight Sons. I was unable to attend, due to a previous engagement, but I hear it was one hell of a great time!

  Coming up this weekend is a toy drive (Route 69 Productions is putting on that show with Maximum Overdrive headlining, Trigger Sindrome & Demolition Rage, plus one other band (which I think is Black9) on Friday at The Rockpile (Dec. 7th) and Hidden Agenda on the 8th at Sessions on the River (Dec. 8th). Rolling towards the end of the year with some parties to get to as well. 2019 won't see me slowing down, but will see me at some amazing shows, for sure..... and I will be enlightening all soon.

  Add in all the other stuff (like housework) and my days stay busy... I rest when I can. Finally found something that tackles my heartburn, so feeling much better. Taking care of buisness...

  I am staying to myself a little more to try and get things done, but when you are almost "Cory Cruise" busy, it's ok.... so, see ya on the airwaves!
