A Final Word Regarding May.....

Ok, so this month is finally over. Why finally? Because it was another one of those depressing months. A month with a "personal theme" running through it. Well, along the way I realized I've gotten pretty damn sick and tired of being down. So I've decided this will be the last of the personal sadness themed months. That's not what we're here for. So from now on, Cheers, let's have fun!

One last thing, anyone realize why each release was chosen this month? I mean, besides they're good releases of course.

Yep, not so "secretive" of a theme after all. Each release featured a musician that sadly chose to end their depression or sadness on their own terms. While I understand it's hard, it REALLY SUCKS for those left behind. So please don't!

  1. Is it because someone died? Other than Stabb, and ferrell? I hope it's not because you feel suicidal and or are thinking of ending the blog.

    1. Great to hear from you again, Col. Nope, the suicidal theme is due to choices made by a loved one. I'm doing just fine and see no reason to stop this train.

    2. I wasn't here this time last year. I am sorry for your loss. I enjoy the tunage and now that I have a little more stability, I'll drop in. I myself have had some loss. It sucks, birthdays are right around the corner for that too. Tomorrow actually. Keep up the fight, my man.

    3. Loss does indeed suck. But I will raise a pint in solidarity and honor

  2. I believe it was a friend or relative. I remember you made a post on the subject when you began the theme, but can't remember the exact details.

    1. It was a suicide if I recall that correctly. Been there, rather not have done that.

    2. Correct, yep you don't realize just how stupid it is until it hits close to home!

    1. Correct and thanks Mark. Don't worry, I've chosen to leave my depressed days behind.

  4. I cheated (well, double-checked your posts from this time last year because my memory is faulty). May is the month of your late brother's birthday. You gave him a proper tribute here.

  5. Derrick Plourde, what a fuckin drummer. Knowing he got kicked out of Lagwagon 3 weeks into touring Hoss (where he seemingly was told to play more simply...read an interview of Joey (vocals in Lagwagon) from 1996 and he said "Derrick was so good, people only looked at our drummer, it was ridiculous" I bet he ate those words, he made Duh and Trashed what was so awesome about the band at its peak (Trashed is the peak of peaks for them, later on it became Joey's acoustic guitar songs turned into punk songs, not a collaborative effort.) Was there a Poison Idea album? I got most of em, but they got so many releases...stupid question, I'll be looking at it. I just got out of a depressing situation, I'm on Suboxone and benzos, and i'm sick of it, especially benzos, gotta buy some nonrx in my country benzos so I don't fall into wd's. But when I bought some Co-Enzyme Q10 100mg pills (it works, its a natural product, but not homeopathy) for my heart and general body oxygenation, I feel much better dropped the Suboxone from 10mg to 6mg in a week and I'll be off it this year, I'm sure.
