Updating my list of people I would kill if I could get away with it.

Three years ago this bundle of joy came into the wifey and my life. He has shown me a lot of great things. He has the weirdest sense of humor ever. Yep, we both laugh at farts together (we do say excuse me)

This is what happens when your son watches a video of wifey (his mom) doing the #alsicebucketchallenge while I’m laughing as I’m video taping her.

Friends and family selfie. happy birthday wifey!!

The ice bucket challenge is a great example of people doing something great to help others. Yet some still finding a way to critique what they’re doing. Please take the time to understand how much awareness it has made. As most of you know if celebrities do it then others will follow. Some say “why not just donate?” well if they wouldn’t have made up the challenged would people be donating as they have been? over one million this weekend alone. So instead of looking for way to criticize this. How about you take the time to understand it? if they do the challenge they donate $10 if they don’t they “have” to donate $100

Hey ladies want to bring your alcohol inside a venue and not get caught? Yep this is for you!

Hey, my parents have been pestering me to "get a plan" on how to support myself when I go away to school next year. I have always been interested in music and decided that I would want to find a band based where I'm going to go and attempt to be their merch girl. How would I tell my parents that without them thinking it was something wreckless or "being the band members' whore" (actual quote from the parents of someone on Yahoo!Answers with a similar question)

Well it’s completely normal for a parent or anyone to get little concern on anyone that wants to get into the music business. Specially as a Merch person. You see doing any job as a career is hard and even more difficult to make a career in the touring business. You see you can be prepared, educated, even have some experience and that still won’t give you an edge. Touring is a who knows who, who worked for who and word of mouth. Sometimes it’s not about hiring the right person for the job but hiring the least expensive person. I know it wrong because cheap ends up being more expensive. But most managers don’t get the importance of having someone with experience or a person that has increased sales. As they think in numbers and although numbers never lie sometimes making an investment pays off big time.

So going back to “is there an easy way to explain to your parents about touring”. The answer is no. All I have to say try first getting on a tour before you think of telling your parents you want to go on tour.

You don’t chose to tour, touring chooses you.
