Music


I describe this blog as “musings on multiple matters,” but somehow I’ve neglected to writing about my two biggest passions in life: Sports and music. So, I’ve decided to go ahead and include that here so that I can share some of the things I’ve learned and experienced with whoever reads this blog. I’ve played piano all my life, guitar and drums since I was 13, and I occasionally fiddle with the bass. For sports, I played basketball and volleyball in high school (had aspirations to play college and beach volleyball) and after high school I played competitive tennis. To start, I’m going to give a few tips on improving your piano ability so that you can enjoy playing a little more. So, hit the “more” link and let’s get started!

Somewhere out there, I’m sure that a fan of mine dedicates this classic to me… and only me. 🙂

Hey all, yours truly had a total blast at the Blackberry Storm launch party last night. Saw the Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age – awesome show! Saw the likes of Kat Von D, Joe Rogan, Seth Rogen, girls from the new 90210 series, one of the American Idol contestants from a few seasons back (Ryan Starr, I think?) and a host of other celebzzz.

More sad news, folks: A body found in an SUV in Chicago is believed to be Jennifer Hudson’s nephew. In case you didn’t know, Hudson had been offering $100k for the return of her nephew. I can’t even imagine just how terrifying it must be to hear this news and wait for the police to confirm the identity of the body – especially when everything, including license plates matching the Amber alert, are pointing to only one possibility. Naturally, Jennifer and her sister, Julia Hudson, had been doing everything a worried, concerned, and frantic person would do in a horrible situation like this. Cash rewards had been offered, suspects have been sought out (Julia Hudson’s estranged husband, William Balfour, has been arrested but not yet charged), and any and all clues have been eagerly awaited for. Her newphew, 7-year-old Julian King, had been missing since Friday. If you know anything at all about this and happen to stumble across my blog, call the Chicago police. Until then, we await their results and findings on the body.

Jennifer Hudson is an award winning actress and singer. Hudson’s claim to fame was the third season of American Idol where she was a finalist. Her role in the movie Dreamgirls won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
