Nobody Leaves This World Alive…

…so how about we stop taking everything so seriously? This is the first post to a blog I started a very long time ago, hoping to polish up my writing skills. And to have a little fun. Unfortunately, I’ve been having too much fun to post about it. Let’s see if that changes. I hope you like it, if you read it. If you don’t, that’s good too. Hopefully, this humble blog will turn into a place where I can post thoughts, stories and a whole bunch of other crap that is constantly buzzing into and out of my head, so it doesn’t get lost. Too lost.

Hopefully, this will make me feel better about the world we live in.

The Top Fifty Albums of All Time…That I’ve Ever Owned

This is a project I’ve wanted to do for a while to trace my musical influences, or more appropriately, the music that has influenced my life. I have a feeling this thing is going to be posted in a few different ways: First, Top 50. Second, Maybe I’ll do them chronologically, so I can see how they make up the soundtrack of my life. I might even include more albums/cds on the chronologcal list that don’t make it on my Top 50. It’s my Blog, so bite me if you don’t like it. Start your own fucking blog.
