Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy reduced to a slow vibration. That we are all once consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather.

Products of the Week

The Fender Stratocaster. Probably my favorite guitar. I myself only own a Squier, but it's a Fender nonetheless. Plays great. I've been considering scalloping it, but I don't want to destroy it on accident.

This! is fantastic. Sounds fantastic. Looks fantastic. Costs...a lot of money. I would jump at the chance to use one of these for just one day. Some pretty big bands use these suckers.

Donate. I'm needy.

Please donate. Any bit helps. I'm gonna be going to college soon and I'm gonna need help paying for everything.

It's ok
Everything will be fine
I just can't believe this is real

He's too young!
This wasn't supposed to happen!
Give me answers!

If only I could turn back time...
I would give anything to get answers...
If I could just say one more thing to him...

He'll never see his future
He left so much behind
I will always miss him

He is in peace now
He will never suffer again
We'll see him on the other side

Dedicated to Lee Stassen.

As I lie with my headphones blaring
I focus on nothing
Nothing but the words
The drums
The guitar
The beautiful harmonies
I am a part of it
I am a part of everything I hear
I step out of my body
I reach my arms out
I try to grab whatever might be there
My eyes are closed
I touch something
I'm touching the music
Music itself in my hands
It's heavy but weightless
Blinding me in darkness
The beat of the song matches the beat of my heart
I love it
I bathe in it
I live it
It is mine
And only mine
It belongs to me
It's too abstract for others
One thing I can do
I'll break a piece off
It will grow forever
If you understand me,
It's yours.
