I am a professional musician, fun-loving, great sense of humor and just an all around real person. Oh yeah, I also work at Trader Joe's. Yay Trader Joe's!
I'm a college grad, a hard worker, respectful and fair. Laughing is my number one priority, next to music that is. I guess this starts the list of the things I like. To list them then would be: Music, laughter, love, my drums, and traveling, just to name a few. And luckily, so far I've been able to encompass all these things in my latest globetrotting experiences.
I like this question: What are the 5 things I can't live without? Well, the first thing that came to mind is LL Cool J's line, "And you know I can't live without my radio.", from the song with the same name. It's true, I can't live without my music, my lady Judith Klain, my drums, good Asian cuisine and trees. I love trees. I love greenery. So, in essence, my last choice is really saying that I can't live without oxygen. But, to be fair, I think that would be on everyone's list.
My favorite musical artist is Prince, my favorite drummers are Prince, Allison Miller, Sheila E, Terry Lynne Carrington and pretty much all the drummers Prince ever had. I love Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Beth Custer, Trevor Garrod (Tea Leaf Green) and my own music of course. Ok, let me move on because I could talk about music for a while.
The movies I like are comedies, action flicks, a good documentary, old westerns (especially Clint Eastwood ones), certain SciFi (or is it SyFy now? I like the old way better. It implies that one knows how to spell.) and yes, I am a Trekkie. the original Star Trek is awesome and I love it. But I have to say that Star Trek: TNG is FAR superior and my fav. But I got love for them both equally. I can't live without my Capt. Kirk either. And of course Star Trek Voyager....the BIZZLE!
I am a fan of live music and I urge all to support, live and be live music. The big stars of today wouldn't be where they are if it wasn't for the local shows they put on when they were in the early stages. Let's reclaim who will be the next stars and not allow the record biz machine to keep force-feeding us regurgitated, replicated rhythm/soul/taste-less rations masquerading as nutritious musical food. Ok, let me get down from that soap box....
Having me as a guest will be as easy as pie. I am quiet, respectful, clean and courteous.Also, I've been told that I'm pretty funny. I try to travel as light as I can, a suitcase and a bag or two. Unless of course I have an instrument with me.
I am a huge fan of the following mottos: "Don't start none, won't be none." and "Do unto others as you want done unto you." And my favorite movie credos I love and appreciate are: "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc"..."We gladly feast on those who would subdue us." (The Addams Family. Said by Morticia Addams) and "Caveat emptor." (A Very Brady Sequel. Said by Mike Brady to the dastardly Roy Martin.) These are two of my all time favorite comedy films. If you haven't seen these movies or their predecessors and/or sequels you are missing OUT! They are silly, stupid, and all around fun and have awesome values and morals in them.
I think that's it about me. I hope you've enjoyed reading my musings!
