Finally watched some tennis

so I watched a little of the Open yesterday and last night.
I'm feeling pretty good about how the US players are going to do.

I don't however think Andre's chances are very good. I love the guy, and what he's done for the sport and what he's done during his long career on the court. but the guy needed a shot after his first win.


Am I saying he can't do it?! no way... but it's going to be tough, painful, and full of emotional
matches. So who do I go for if I'm not going for Aggassi all the way out?  Just look below...

true talent

So I just watched an online video. (don't watch it unless you're ready for some "fun language" and drunken laughs)
This video changed my whole view on Kelly Clarkson yet again. This is a girl who has amazed me in the past with how much rock she can put into a pop song. I realize because of the whole American Idol thing... she has to be a pop singer. But this girl is a ROCKER!

And the fact that I watched this video of her at an unknown metal band concert, where she was wasted, but still had enough talent to get up there and blow every singer away just speaks volumes about her talent. This was not like a Karaoke night at the bar... this was good stuff! She was singing harmony and everything!

It just tells me that there are people out there with too much talent and not enough wisdom for their own good. Am I saying she shouldn't go out and have a good time? no way... she's young, and she's had to grow up fast... so by all means... take your boyfriend from Yellowcard and go get drunk. But please!!! Don't let kids think that they'll be able to sing that good while drunk!!! We'll have EVEN MORE bad karaoke!

and so ends my long story only to complete with a lame punch line.

But seriously... I hope the next album she puts out will be with a rock band or something. I may even buy it. So to you, Kelly... thanks again for making pop loving kids and chicks love rock music without even knowing it. There may be hope for this world afterall.

Ratings

So the new york ratings came out not too long ago.

it AMAZES me that the number one station only pulls a 6 share.

That's how much diffrent, and how tight that market is! It also amazes me that a spanish station can hold the number 2 spot... where there is obviously more than one spanish station in the market, and the hispanic population is not the biggest percentage! radio is a strange she devil.

nothing really important to post on this... just kind of testing out the function of more than one blog category.

I’m diggin it

yea... so far, I'm really liking wordpress. it's easy enough for an idiot like me to do stuff on it... but also has the "flex" for if I ever actually learn how to manipulate it.

Plus, I can change styles without having to redo the entire site!

So I went to a club premire last night. "The Mix" here in Chattanooga. It was more of a dance club than it was a bar or anything... so needless to say, it was interesting. But I have to say, it was unique dj'ing. infact... I would actually call it true VJ'ing (Video Jock). Every song that was played, was played up on the screens... and every song that was mixed/scratched was still on video... I don't know what kind of equipment they were running, but it was a site to see for a geek like me.

Weekend, here I come!!!

Hello world!

I'm testing this wordpress program to see how I like it.

It's pretty obvious that I'm still not happy with the current website... so I'm trying new stuff.

We'll see how it works.

another year… another year older

yea... my birthday was yesterday.
I was hoping for something that didn't happen.
actually, a lot of stuff didn't happen. But I'm not going to let that get me down.

I really didn't have much to say. But I wanted my first post in the new blog to be after my birthday.

I hope by the end of the week, or next I can tell you some good news. Because now I've got my goals in mind, and I'm going to work towards them and not let anything get in my way by distraction. It's going to be tough again... but this time around, I'm going to make the right choices.

Hopefully I'll be able to explain this to you all soon.
