Thank you! It’s not bad. But this one is good, imo:

This is sad, beautiful and haunting. I really like it a lot. His voice is pleasant, believable. Pretty song, nice melody. The outro is haunting. Sounds like a heartbeat struggling. Thanks for sharing. My hats off to your friend. It is beautifully recorded too. A lot of care went in to making this song. It’s evident. Beautiful stuff!

I’m going to volunteer for the RFK Jr. Campaign. I don’t agree with him on all topics but even when I disagree he seems to use cogent thinking. He’s his own man and has a history of fighting for his convictions even when it’s inconvenient.

I had the opportunity to meet him in person and we have some friends in common. They say he’s, “the real deal.” Meaning it’s not a facade. This documentary went a long way towards convincing me to action. I’m done with GOP and DNC. Shades of grey with the same ultimate bosses: Big Pharma and military industrial complex. Citizens United needs to disappear.

Family is doing well. Kids last day is tomorrow. Excited to spend the summer with them.

Work is going well too. We have a strong team and SuperShot is incredibly promising. Hope you are all doing well too. Onward!

Yeah, strange days. I plan to make music and play tennis as the republic crumbles. I think anyone supporting Trump or Biden is nuts. They’re both abysmal. Is Trump more abysmal? Sure. But I’m all in re Kennedy. If anyone still thinks he’s crazy or can’t win, I’d recommend watching the below. If you’ve watched it and take issue with him as a candidate, I’d welcome the conversation. If you’ve not watched it, please resist commenting.

Have a great weekend, all!

Injured my knee. I am properly addicted to tennis. Can’t stand being on the sidelines. French open is in full tilt. I’m rooting for Tommy Paul and Aryna Sabalenka. Trump was convicted of 34 felonies today. I’m pretty exhausted. Gonna sleep now.

Be good, Hubski

Yeah, post away and shout-out to those of us that asked you to. I don't check my notifications daily, but when I come back and see your shout-out, I'll definitely read your work.

Nice! That's awesome. Enjoy the process.

Thank you, my friend! For the record, this is 100% my choice and wasn't presented to me by anyone. I am making this decision for myself to have a better life. Period. Looking forward to playing some tennis with you this summer. Need to line that up. ecib mk come to NC!

I’ve decided to stop drinking. Like, forever. I’m going to go to an AA meeting. My last day drinking will be May 6th. I’ll end with a nice bottle of Dom.

It’s no longer serving me. Has it ever? Bad for my brain, bad example for my kids, bad for my weight and it makes me feel like shit the next day. I’m done.

Feels good to resolve to do this. But I’m also scared. Scared of losing friendships, missing out on social events etc.

It’s going to be a big change.

Watched the state of the union live and I listened the correspondence dinner and to his recent Howard Stern interview. I don't follow Steve Bannon at all. I think any president should have regular press conferences, ideally with journalists that "press," them and hold them accountable. Everything you suggested I watch is highly scripted (including the Stern interview.) Bubblegum stuff.

RFK Jr (you can certainly find flaws there) will have my vote. He has a platform that I largely agree with. More so than Trump or Biden. I could never vote for Trump and I can't imagine 4 more years of Biden. We are not headed in a good direction, imo and some of his proposed fiscal policies are ridiculous.

Platforming? Presidential debates have been a norm since the 1970’s. If Trump is a criminal traitor then winning a debate against him should be fairly simple for Biden. What’s to fear?

He’s had the least number of press conferences since Reagan for a reason. The guy is not what he once was and debate was never his strong suit. He will proport to be above debating a, “traitor.” And Dems will gobble it up. We have Ukraine, inflation, Israel/palestine, AI, climate change etc. But no press conferences. No debates. Investigative journalism is dead. Bunch of sock puppets espousing scripted narratives. But at least we could see our prospective candidates debate. No more though. Sucks.
