1. This song was on one of my first "albums" titled Songs From the Straight Jacket. I remember writing it while working at a machine shop in Ventura. I came home and recorded it at around 3-4 in the morning.

    Probably subconsciously, it was my way of expressing the way I felt about females at the time. Not all bad, but definitely not too good.

    Now I am revisiting this song simply because I like playing guitar and it's a fun song to play. I revamped it a bit from the original but stuck to the roots. I apologize for Heather seen excessively licking herself in the background. She's normally a good dog.

  2. I have always been a big proponent of thinking for yourself. But we live in a world full of followers. We follow religious leaders, political figures, and are easily influenced by those we choose to spend time with. But most of the time, we do not think about how we acquired certain beliefs or opinions. That's when you need to check yourself.

  3. This song was written about Timothy Treadwell, aka The Grizzly Man. On one hand he was a very inspiring individual, devoted to the welfare of bears. On the other hand, he had some major life issues that he was never able to overcome.

    I never recorded this song besides this video. Of course, it's not perfect because I am not a solid guitarist, but I hope the essence comes through.

  4. This song is about finding the beauty present in life. It's always surrounding us, but we get caught up in everything but what is here right now.

    Keep in mind, this is raw stuff. I hope you enjoy.
