Act Your Age?

September 17, 2007 — 25 Comments
 

I’ve been thinking a lot lately and finding that I have more to say on life for this blog then just showing the millions of readers cool resources. So here goes.

A funny thing has been coming into my brain lately..It has been spurred on by the many times I am around other adults and people my age. Usually it is when I am standing waiting for my son to come out of school, when we are at Navy, when I am waiting for my boy to finish his karate class, and most of all at guitar center(MECCA). This phenomenon is trying to find where I fit in. I am 30 years old prematurely bald and greying. I am married to a beautiful wickedly smart woman who does occupational therapy, a field where I could not survive on account of my lack of smartieness. I have 2 boys and one on the way. Why did I tell you that…well it’s because I don’t feel my age.

So there I am at my kids school with the other parents. They are in their BMW’s and wicked pricey cars, wearing pretty nice clothes and living the life and look of a normal adult. Me…well I’m in carpenter jeans from old navy, sneakers, a hat that says Sugar Daddy and a Tshirt with Spiderman on the front.  For Christmas this past year every present I got on the box said for 5 and under. I have my Optimus Prime sitting on my desk right next to my batman and gandolf. I have guitars and one is decked out in tribal stickers. I still love skulls and all things rock n roll. and my kids sit with me and watch steve vai and guitar festival videos.

There is more I can go into, but the reality is this. I am a gen x’r and love every minute of it, but I am also moving quite fine into the ipod generation…the funny thing is this doesnt help me act my “Age”

How old are you…acting?

 

We sent a man to the moon

We mapped the human G-nome

We built the internet

We have Laptops and Cellphones

We can do transplants

We can see houses via satellites

So if we can do and have all of that and more….then:

WHY CAN’T THEY INVENT A GUITAR THAT DOESN”T GIVE US PROBLEMS WITH THE G STRING? Arg….

AHHH! what the heck

Sara Groves new CD coming

If You are a reader on this blog then you know full well how I feel about Sara Groves. In particular her last CD Add to the Beauty. I consider that CD to be one of the top 10 CD’s of the last 20 years. If you haven’t bought it yet…get on it. With that said on her site she announced a new CD

On November 6th, INO Records will be releasing Sara’s new album “Tell Me What You Know”.

Sara says on her site:

“My life has been so changed and challenged in the last couple of years by people who have endured incredible hardship around the world, and by the people who have come alongside them working as what I imagine Jesus intended when he called us His Body. Where I used to see politics, poverty and detached social agendas, I now see people. This album is about people, and the defiance of their hope, it is about freedom, both spiritual and physical, and it is about what I have yet to learn about God from my neighbors who have gone to the places where courage is required, and have found a deeper understanding of Christ and his suffering, his redemption, and his joy.”
