An experience that made you who you are today. There are a lot of experiences that made me who I am today. Losing both my mom and dad, a brother, a sister, a nephew… since I don’t really want to post pictures of them today, I’ll show you a picture of me in drum corps. That was definitely an experience that made me who I am today!
This is a picture of me and my teacher, Jason Kuyper. He managed to be my teacher when I first started drum corps in Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps out of Milwaukee, WI and then 4 years later was my teacher in Southwind Drum and Bugle Corps out of Lexington, KY. I spent two years with Pioneer, 1996 & 1997. I took part of the tour off in 97 when my mom got very ill but I joined back up with the corps when she did a turnaround. I took 1998 off of corps and then I was a “rook-out” in Southwind in 1999. A rook-out means that I was a rookie-my first year with that corps during my age-out year- the last year you are allowed to march drum corps. That is the year you turn 21. It was an interesting experience! I rode in buses across the United States, sleeping in school gymnasiums, showering in school showers (YUCK), and playing a show almost every night.

I still love music, as you can tell if [...]
I don’t even watch Glee, but I originally heard this song from my friend Kim after she stumbled upon it not long after it aired on Glee. When I originally heard this song on her blog, I assumed they made it more of a “pop” type song since I’d never heard the original. I heard [...]
I love Pink. I think I can finally say I have a favorite musician. I love her vocal range because mine is similar and she sings songs that not only I can sing along with, but I can sing with feelings. My friend Kas had me watch this video tonight. I’ve heard the [...]
There’s been some controversy about this song because the Bellamy Brothers recorded a song called “If I said you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?” Musician’s use familiar hooks and phrases from each other all the time. They even re-record older popular hits. It’s what the music business does. I don’t [...]
I found this website last night and thought he was pretty comical. You don’t want to watch his videos around kids because he talks about “the sex.” Joey is trying to end unwanted animal sex by getting them spayed or neutered.
Animal overpopulation stinks. And it’s happening because not enough cats and dogs are getting spayed [...]
