Thanks x 1,000 -- Oscar the grouch is my vocal coach/role model. I want to make an opera of these songs with Andrew Dice Clay starring as The Donald:

I absolutely love this it is great a quality re record of this might be in order, or not the rawness lends an element to, if you played it a few more practice times the re record it might be better....Either way it's what the world needs right now!! I love to eat taco bowwwwls!! Love it!!

JAJAJA! Thanks man, I'm glad you like the track. I was working on a concept album for a while, right after the election:

"One of the problems i am having is, once you start dating...they want you to throw everything away and focus only on them. I can't stand that." that's not unusual. What about through the church?

You have no idea how i behave in church. I am introverted, and so even if I walk up to a lady and ask for her number...I hardly ever get to call or text. It's like I just do those moves to sort of sharpen my ability to be able to chase the hunt, you know; chase the zebra, kill it and leave it there and go back into the den. Now this is me on Sunday: Wake up once the sun is up, kneel down, pray, if I have anything to say to the big guy. Play some gospel songs by this guys: Christ our Life, a band from Canada, I think. Wash my old Peugeot 406, it's always dusty, road to the house is not tarred so, you do the maths.
Anyway by 9:30am I zoom off, of course after taking a shower and dressing up. Now, once I get into the church, I avoid the ushers putting my head down, target my favourite seat, sit down and never move. In Africa we dance a lot in the church and guess what, I can't dance so to them I am this stone-cold assassin looking dude. No one knows anything about me. One lady from my church saw my picture in a friend's phone and told him, "Oh, so you know that quiet guy who talks to no one and always quickly walks out once service is done?" He called me and made me talk to her, she was shocked to find out I am human. Now, once the preacher says it's done...I stand up, walk out and zoom back home.
I get home, lock myself in, open the lid of my old lenovo laptop and start staring at the screen waiting for some whisper from God knows who on the expectation of some concept or idea of any tale, whatever thing I feel is worth writing. I avoid talking to people, bad experience in past relationships. Lots and lots of betrayal by close buddies even cousins, so I am very careful with the kind of people I let in on my circle. They can easily discourage you. But i like people, as a matter of fact I love people but I always get hurt once I reach out to be nice. So that's about it.

I once thought that Great Again!! should be title track but now I am thinking this should be with the album cover a riff on Big League Chew bubble gum packaging with the Donald superimposed. We are Big League in a big way now, baby. A YUGE way.

Haha thanks. I actually read bloomberg now and then. I am actively trying to learn more about investing as I got a raise recently. Come from very poor family so know zero about stocks, etc. Exactly. The US could easily adopt the Canadian system, but I feel there is some shady business and kickbacks going on between the insurance companies and congressmen, be it via lobbyists, campaign donations, what have you, that prevent this from occurring, at least in our lifetimes. Only problem is getting people active and off of sugars. Two main reasons (well besides smoking or whatver) we are all dying younger than we should given our medical advances since our grandparents time. Yes. It makes me super angry when people complain about things like that. Living in a poorer state has some advantages actually, if you make decent wages at your job. Like if you make 60k here, you could buy a house. In San Francisco? Yea not so much. It is true that you have to actively try to make a good life here, and fun things to do don't just magically fall in your lap, but at least there is ample food and water supplies and access to care when you need it.

In terms of investing, I'll be honest with you, you don't need to make 60K/year to buy property and you can go for a duplex. I come from a similar background as you. The thing is that stock investing is slow but steady with 0 income until you retire, and you are better off in the indices. I am looking on zillow right now and Huntington seems to be very reasonable ($50/foot to buy). I am also looking on Craigslist and if you plan to rent out 1/2 of a duplex, you can get probably 70 cents per foot. So take this one:

http://www.zillow.com/homes/for_sale/Huntington-WV/pmf,pf_pt/apartment_duplex_type/22404124_zpid/12012_rid/38.518354,-82.194901,38.215794,-82.66388_rect/10_zm/

Your Principle Interest Taxes and INsurance assuming you only have to come up with is closing costs will be 700/month:

https://www.zillow.com/mortgage-calculator/?homePrice=97500&downPayment=0&rate=3.898&term=Fixed30Year&includeTaxesInsurance=false

Which is what you can get by renting out the half you don't live in. That would save you what you are paying for rent right now, since your tenant is effectively paying your mortgage.

Ironically I just got a check from a tenant via Huntington bank!

So if you are now paying 500/month you are bringing in $6,000 more a year using this strategy. You can then either pay of your mortgage faster, or use that extra $6,000 for other things -- even buying up more property in the neighborhood.

Nice. Hadnt thought of this route. Not sure how long I will be staying here though as I am applying to jobs all over the place, but its a good strategy to think over once I find a more permanent situation than what I have now.

As long as you stay out of places with high property values, you'll be fine. Pittsburgh metro area is very reasonably priced, for instance and lots of research jobs.

Thank you for your comments. I have actually been suffering from a persistent sinus infection/some sort of prolonged allergy attack due to the unseasonably warm weather this year. One of the reasons I have been recording demos only lately. My vocals are extra nasally and don't really want to try to record final album versions with all this sneezing and nose blowing going on. Haha I actually never stretch before running either (ran 4 miles yesterday) so it's no surprise that I dont do vocal exercises. Need to consider it though. Thank you for the youtube link Shoham

Do not procrastinate. Just go out there and do it.
One of the reasons why I put up so much in my little way is that once inspired I don't let that fire die. I just add more fuel to it and watch it blaze up.
I checked, you have got so much to offer. Okay like this friend I have, he has written and recorded more than three hundred songs and all he does is keep it to himself. So, go hit that door and storm the booth $Shoham
