04-25-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Before I was 3” (#4) Don’t get mad…(and I love ya sis if you’re out there) but I half to tell this one! My sister (who I love very much by the way) decided we should play hide & seek in the dark in our apartment. She was older so she made the rules…in the dark she put me on a wooden stool and told me to count to 10…I don’t even remember if I could count to 10 but anyway…I forgot that I was standing on this wooden stool and went to step towards the door to do my seeking part…Well, the stool kicked out from under my feet and I fell right on the stool (kind a like the movie Million Dollar Baby) but I hit my mouth instead of my neck!...off to the hospital again, but that was only like 15 stitches and a fat lip…plain and simple.
04-19-13-My Morning Thoughts: Fear? I sure wish fear didn’t come with age! If my memory is correct, I just don’t remember much fear as a kid…now don’t get me wrong I did some things that got the adrenalin flowing to top capacity but the fear part just wasn’t in the picture normally. Now…it’s hard for me to get on the roof and fix 3 shingles that blew off from the last storm!...ya this aging thing really sucks sometime…LOL…everyone be safe this weekend and enjoy your family and friends…plain and simple.
04-18-13-My Morning Thoughts: “Missing Trophy” “I never really won a trophy before unless you count the bicycle-rodeo championship in six grade”........that was going to be my first line when I won song of the year at the 33rd Annual Grammy awards (I set my goals a little high sometimes)…I think this year is the 55th show!...needless to say that’s as far as I ever had to write that speech…now I’m shooting for the 66th Grammy awards and hoping they have a “senior” category by then…follow your dreams all, it makes for some exiting days and nights…plain and simple.
03-15-13-My Morning Thoughts: Interesting is a very interesting word don’t ya think? If you have an interest in a subject you normally want to learn as much as you can because Its…welllllll…interesting. Yes, some things are more interesting than others…if that’s possible…but some things are just plain boring! As long as I’m interested I continue to investigate however when I’m uninterested I’m pretty much done at that point…one thing for sure…I’m really in suspense that this weekend is just the right amount of interesting so I can keep interested long enough to enjoy all the interesting people that may cross my path and all the unique interesting places that may catch my eye…”verrrrrrrry interesting…but stupid”…have a great weekend all, be safe and stay tuned…the new Album will be bouncing around the internet shortly!!!...hope you all can’t wait to support independent music…plain and simple.
03-11-13-My Morning Thoughts: Believe me I know it’s Monday…but…Today will be a great day I can just feel it! Sometimes things just all go according to plan and sometimes they don’t…but today, I’m making it all good!!! And may I say…I hope your day is everything you wanted…plain and simple. FOR INFO ON MY NEW ALBUM CONTACT ME AT email@example.com...thanks!
03-08-13-My Morning Thoughts: I know its Friday…but…can I just sleep today???...wow!...two posts in a row about being tired…maybe I should do something about that?...any thoughts out there about the map to the fountain of youth?...maybe I should just walk more than to the fridge and back and then to the guitar!...anyway, everyone have a fantastic weekend, be safe and enjoy each other...plain and simple.
03-01-13-My Morning Thoughts: Is there a reason why sometimes I don’t remember the past quite as well as I use too? Why do I need a nudge every now and then to start the old “walk down memory lane” going that slowly brings me back to yesteryear…am I old? I don’t feel old most of the time…”isn’t age just a number”…and ya who coined that phrase??...Well I prefer the “use it or lose it” phrase myself, it just makes sense to me…anyway, here’s to all of you remembering all your precious memories forever…have a wonderful safe weekend all…plain and simple.
02-26-13-My Morning Thoughts: When there’s something you feel very strongly about whether it be religion, politics, music or just plain life styles in general…how far is too far for compromise? Is there a line in the imaginary sand that says this is just too far to bend? Do we stick to out convictions for all the right reasons and if so, who’s to say our reasons are the right reasons! I don’t know…life’s complicated at times however wondrous it may be…and though I will continue plugging along staying grateful through each daily journey, I will always wonder that if at some point…the path taken had been over compromised during those journeys to some extent…I guess this is one of those things that is played out “after the fact”…plain and simple.
02-23-13-My Morning Thoughts: You know with the internet music has changed at least 10 fold easy! 30 years ago I played everywhere I could because I loved to play, so I did. I shopped my songs a bit here and there but unless you had someone to get that proverbial foot in the door you were locked out every time! Now, 30 years later and mainly because of the internet access, I’ve been number 1 in Ohio on Folk charts, and #523 globally in the all combined genres category at the Reverbnation.com website…there are 2.75 million people on Reverbnation.com at this time. Basically the charts are based on how many visits you get and how many songs get played and how many people sign up as fans and how many times the music gets shared and passed on and its all synced with FB & Twitter too…BECAUSE OF ALL OF YOU I have reached points of 55, 696 song plays, 33, 454 fans, 10, 348 views, 27, 000 twitter followers, more than 5,000 FB likes…MANY MANY THANKS!...Now just so you know, and if I may be a great deal more transparent than some…because I allow so many of my songs to be played without a download purchase for your listening pleasure, I have made $78.23…now wait there’s more…before you say Larry’s really cleaning up these days here’s the skinny…with the web fees and recording fees and the fees on fees I’m more than 5 thousand in the hole…now don’t be said for Larry because you know how many bars I would have had to play in 30 years ago for over 50 thousand people to hear my music…you guessed it…LOTS!...Ok, now I’m being honest with each of you as I do on a daily basis…if you decide to download one of my old songs or CD…please remember there are several costs involved to the artist and though we artist would love to make money for something we love to do…I’ve always been one to hope to break even so I could record more songs for those who want to listen. I know many buy a copy and copy the copy and pass it on…and so on and so on and that’s fine with me when I get to one penny over the break even part…but if ya want to help out the independent artist…purchase a download or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll give ya the scoop on how to purchase the new CD…Many thanks!...plain and simple.
02-22-13-My Morning Thoughts: Remember when you were a kid and you got caught doing something wrong? Remember that feeling in your stomach from knowing that …..there…..will……..be……..consequences for your actions! God I had that feeling way to many times growing up! But hey, I made it, I took my medicine and went on my way…some punishment was unfair and unjust I thought at the time…however…the underlying factor is…it was my doing!...hope all of you have a fantastic and safe weekend…plain and simple.
