So…… You’re a  Music Industry Professional or a MEGA-Fan of Pink Floyd? If so, you’re quite likely aware of “Sax Wrestler”, “Fred Astaire Look-alike” , “Song and Dance Man”… and “Stage-Ripping-Reptile”, +Scott Page …..one of the Nicest Guys you’ll ever meet. He and several of the Biggest Names in the Business have come up with a NEW Network and if you happen to be one of the “Chosen”……aka, Kind, Classy, Too Good Lookin’ for Words…(maybe NOT that one)….. and too Old to use the Word “DOPE” when describing something you think is “Cool”…… you might want to get in on this while you can.

Am I trying to SELL this?  Nope. I have no Financial Interest in this at all…..Only interest in Seeing it Succeed. In Fact, I BLOCK Salespeople in Less than a Heartbeat….as several here have already Discovered.

Why am I a Member? Cuz Facebook Sucks and it’s time for something this Cool to Develop… SLOWLY. Scott and I go back to the Floyd Days and that’s my ONLY Connection here…..Music. 💃🏼 🕺🏼

If you and I know one another personally, and we actually get along anyway, tell Scott I sent you. Here’s your POSSIBLE Ticket in….Keyword?…”POSSIBLE”. Are we absolutely CLEAR on that? No Guarantees and AT BEST this will take awhile. If you can’t be found on Google,  ………Good Luck. 🎧

I look forward to seeing my “Pink Pals” and other Music Industry Folks.

BTW……”Which One’s…Pink?”

See Ya there. 🎩

When Life becomes too “Techno”…….

We Make Choices in Life …….. We can Choose to Relax and Enjoy ……or we can Choose to be Sucked into the Mayhem.  My Observations tell me that the Suckage is Clearly Winning.  Where’s Your Phone right Now?  🍎

You’ve left home without your Phone……

You’re 30 minutes from home and you realize that your phone…your Blessed Companion …is sitting at home on your desk.  What do you do?  Right this second, and as you read those words, your Heart begins to pick up the tempo just a bit. You can’t help it cuz your phone has programmed you to freak when you get too far away from it. We’ve reached the point in our lives where, before you go to the Bathroom, you look around to bring your phone with you…”Just in Case”. It’s subconscious.

How exactly did we get here?  What is it about our tiny friend which DEMANDS that it be by our side every second of every day?  It’s very similar to Linus and his Blanket……or Charlie Brown and his Never-ending Book of Dreams.

I mentioned the Bathroom scene after seeing a report from Verizon stating that in the United States alone over 7,500 devices EACH YEAR somehow end their lives by way of “Drowning”…in a Toilet Bowl….by Accident.

The first time I left my iPhone on my desk I was late for a VERY important gig and turning around to get it was NOT an option. I’ll admit that I was uncomfortable for at least a half hour and would unconsciously reach into my pocket…while driving…to check my messages. At one point I began to “LOL” as I realized what I was doing and I had to Force myself to settle down. Then a funny thing happened… I became strangely Calm.

Don’t get the wrong idea here as I actually USE my phone very little. I entered the Smart phone world with a Galaxy 3 and almost never used it. I had my iPhone 6 for years and as my sight was rapidly diminishing the phone became a bit of a problem because I couldn’t see the screen well… but was in PERFECT working order when the ad came out for the iPhone Plus…..in RED!  I actually used my diminishing sight as the rationalization for NEEDING the New phone and purchased the Clear Otterbox, the one that slides off of the seat of my car at the mere tap of the brake peddle, just so I could see Big Red.

I’ve not once ever put the phone in my back pocket as I see so many do. That seems a bit dangerous and MOST disrespectful to me so it lives in the pocket of my Denim jacket…. the jacket I wear even when it’s 110 degrees in the shade.

The Camera is Spectacular and  when going to a Shoot I’ll often use it along with my Nikon cuz it’s faster to grab the iPhone than it is to change lenses. 958c36291dc2e8e-a-nw-p.jpg

The application I TRULY enjoy about Smart Phones is Google Maps. It makes me wonder how I ever actually arrived at a destination before although I do CLEARLY recall opening a gigantic magazine-like printed book and trying to figure out where we were on MANY occasions. It’s much nicer listening to this Woman tell me that there’s JUST been an accident 2 miles ahead and she’s Re-routing me so I should get into the right Exit lane and exit the highway right Now!  How cool is that.

And speaking of Speaking, Siri is the Woman you see just to the left. She’s English, well mannered, drinks Oregon Chai and always ready to be called into action with a mere mention of her name.  However, being the realist that I am, I test her constantly…..just to see if she’s listening. Anyone who thinks that their phone doesn’t listen to you just for the fun of it is a Total Dreamer. If I’m with someone and the conversation is “Private”, my phone is shut down….as is any other phone in close proximity. Paranoid?  Nope.  Safe.

Bottom Line.  My phone sits right next to my Keys and I’ve now become quite comfortable grabbing said keys and leaving Red right where it sits…..and leaving the Loft for an entire day without missing it a bit……Why?  Because I can.  🎩  🍎  ❤️
