Reset The World Chapter 1
in 10 years I'll be
Well, I guess that’s now isn’t it? I made this profile roughly ten years ago so where am I? Happier. In love with a great girl. Trying to get my three year old to stay in bed.
in 10 minutes I'll be
Probably still trying to convince my son it’s time for dodo.
experience of high strangeness
Posting music I had made a decade ago on the internet. Doing it again 10 years later with 20 year old music.
most overrated
television, sex, money, fame, horses, "two for the price of one", the end of the world,
most underrated
Check out my stations. They're full of bands that should get more attention. I grew up on 90s alternative, punk and grunge so if you did too you might like my choices.
my advice to you
A hot temper is better than a cold dinner.
I just spent 20 minutes writing an extensive bio that erased when I tried to save it so let me give you the “coles notes” version and just edit it when I can.

I grew up in the 90s in a small hockey obsessed mining town called Kirkland Lake in Northern Ontario that developed a small scene of teenage punk bands that intertwined with other local punk scenes in Northern Ontario. At the end of the decade the kids grew up, got married, moved away and moved on. So did I. The era came to a close.

I moved to North Bay. My relationship of 6 years fell apart, I entered another and 5 years later it collapsed. My only focus now being the children that got entangled in this tale. When I had them I was a ful person, when I didn’t I was nothing. At least that’s what it felt like. I had put a song out on this new internet thing (at the time) and had my confidence destroyed. I quit music save for the occasional acoustic jam with old friends. I went through a period where, despite my best efforts to not explore my pain through music, I would what I can only describe as “vomit up” songs which I would record immediately with whatever instruments and cables were available in an effort to purge the songs and move on.

In 2008 I had a big “fuck it” moment and uploaded a bunch of songs from one of my old bands The Deefons and some of the acoustic stuff to the then IAC and more in 2009. I created a couple of stations and have been here adding music on and off since then. This bio kind of sucks so I’ll work on it, but it’s better than the one I made a decade ago so....there’s that.

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my "Wanna Be Heard" blog entry.
It's always nice to know when folks are listening, and even nicer when they tell you that they like what they hear.

Thanks again.
You made my day!
