A Proud Drums Owner

My uncle Jordan taught me how to play the drums when I was a kid. At first I had problems with the beat, but after I got the hang of it, I soon learned to enjoy playing it. Being a child at that time, I did not have my own drum set. To practice, I had to befriend people who owned one, or stay behind after school to access the music room.

After I graduated and had a job, I decided that now was the time to get my own drums. I saved up money and bought the infinte looper as soon as I was able to. It was my first drums, and I felt immensely proud to own it. No longer do I have to rely on other people to play, or even practice.

That Luxurious Feeling

Massage has become very popular for people who are working in a high pressured environment. It used to be a luxury but is now a primary tool to combat stress. It has become a regular practice especially for call center people who work at night and need the healing benefits of massage after a long week at work.

There are different techniques to choose from and a lot of places offer a variety of services to go with it. Some use herbs to relax the customer and others oil as a form of moisturizer. There are hard or soft massages depending on the person’s preferences. It is up to the person to decide on which will best suit their needs.

Reality TV

Do you remember when TV programs were all rated PG-13? What happened to TV programs that had family values? In the 70’s & early 80’s it was unheard of to see people making love on TV or using harsh language. Cable TV has opened up a window that can never be closed now. You would never see a couple in the same bed or women in their underwear on TV shows or commercials. You can’t watch a program today without some sort of cussing or fighting in them, even the children cartoons are violate. We live in a society where Reality TV is the most popular shows on TV.

Reality TV programs cover all aspects of life from work experiences to everyday life experiences. Society seems to enjoy the pain and misery of others who expose their personal business on TV. Such programs are exposing children to things they should not have to see at young ages. Parents are allowing their children to watch shows that are not age appropriate. This is a problem that most parents seem to overlook. Many parents don’t understand the damage that is being caused by some of these TV programs. It is easy for a parent to say “go watch TV” not realizing what the children are watching. Parental control settings are now available to protect young children from being exposed to adult content.

Grandpa and His Passion in Music

The moment I saw my friend’s portable sound system, I began to think about my grandfather. In my point of view, he was great in every way, especially when it comes to music. He was very knowledgeable about a lot of different kinds of musical instruments, especially woodwinds. One of his favorites maybe the saxophone.

I still remember the day that he invited me to see him play saxophone with his band at a local bar, and based on what I’ve witnessed, he’s really good. I know of a few saxophonists around town, but by far, my grandfather was the most unique among all of them. He always cleaned his sax every night after he played a bit. How I really miss my grandfather, especially the way he moves when he was playing his sax.

My Music Obsessed Family

We have a recording studio inside our home with a drum kit and a saxophone, electric guitars, basses, a violin, a piano, keyboard, phat cats, tons of pignose amps and wires everywhere. Everything musical squeezed into our small home. Most of our family money is spent on musical instruments.

My mother sings and plays the piano a bit, I play the sing, play piano and violin and a bit of the drums. My sister plays the drums, a bit of the piano and saxophone. My Dad is an amazing guitar player, sings a bit, plays the drums and piano and is pretty good at just playing just anything. I am very proud of them even sometimes we make our neighbours crazy.
