I've been told I wear my heart on both sleeves. Sometimes, I just can't help it.
It's been a rough ride these last 18-24 months. I've seen a lot of my musical heroes pass on. Yes, heroes. They came through for me with their music and their art. They were my heroes.
I've seen friendships snap like twigs in the wake of last year's election and I've watched innocent people, hard working Americans, get treated like scum.
I woke up this morning to the news of another mass shooting in our United States. The worst in history. Our leader sent "warm condolences" to the families of the 58 killed and over 400 injured...by assault rifles. 19 rifles.
And then there's Puerto Rico suffering unimaginable loss and devastation. Thankfully, our leader dedicated his golf trophy to those victims.
And what about the everyday bullshit? What about the people you trust, fucking you over? I am sure we all have at least one in our lives. Hell, that'll never change. It's a selfish fucking world and God help you if you've got a heart and soul. Yeah, I'm rambling.
And now, just for shits and giggles, Tom Petty suffers cardiac arrest and that's that. 66 years old. Gone.
Yeah, I may be rambling, but I needed to do something with my hands, otherwise I was going to start throwing things across the room.
Something's gotta give.
