I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

to be yourself is all that you can do

someone finds salvation in everyone
and another only pain
someone tries to hide himself
down inside himself he prays
someone swears his true love
until the end of time
Another runs away
separate or united
healthy or insane


what do you see when you look in the mirror?

well, the CN Tower… as you’ve never seen her before of course!

snapped this yesterday morning using the the Delta Toronto Hotel as my mirror!

perfect timing too, was back again at 2 o’clock today, w/ the sun shining big and bright!

… in the exact same spot on Bremner Boulevard!

but this time… bupkis!

… i LOVE LOVE livin’ life in the6!

substitution mass confusion clouds inside your head

i can’t feel this way much longer expecting to survive
with all these hidden innuendoes just waiting to arrive
it’s such a wavy midnight and you slip into insane
electric angel rock and roller i hear what you’re playing
it’s an orangey sky
always it’s some other guy
it’s just a broken lullaby
bye bye love
bye bye love
bye bye love
bye bye love

I’ve had a hell of a time since I went away

All dreams have died, along the way
I coughed up the price, I bought a cage
I’ve had a hell of a time since I went away
Don’t know when I died, or where to lay down

Gone, gone away
Yeah gone, gone away

God knows I’ve tried, I’m dyed in pain
Strong yet simple drive, the freedom to say
I’ve had a hell of a time since I went away
Homing on traces of light, that distance fades

Yeah I’m gone, gone away
Yeah I’m gone, gone away

So they say with time, we slowly heal
I caught a flash of your smile, through the fog of a dream
I’ll have a hell of a time, I clearly see
I can’t be by your side, I’ll see you when I sleep

Now you’re gone…gone away
Yeah you’re gone…gone away

but something that was not meant to be is done

… and this is the start of what was

it’s the end of something I did not want to end beginning of hard times to come

but of all these friends and lovers there is no one compares with you

though I know I’ll never lose affection
for people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
in my life I love you more

I once had a friend

They found her in a car
A hose to the window
And the motor running hot
Seems she couldn’t take it
The rhetoric of life
Someone found her naked
With a note right by her side
By her side oh by her side
She can’t take it back
Neither can I
No neither can I
Mommy and daddy I’ve borrowed the car to sleep on the floor
I’m sorry so much for bringing my own living hell to your door
Thanks for all the flowers at the ringside seat
Thanks for nothing everyone the prayers were too weak
This is the way it happens all the time
Can you pay attention to everyone that cries
Remember you can make it through
And make it new
Only if you try
You better try
Cause you can’t take it back
Neither can I
No neither can I
Mommy and daddy I’ve borrowed the car to sleep on the floor
I’m sorry so much for bringing my own living hell to your door
But things had gotten heavy everything was deep
Nothing really mattered
So I just went to sleep
I just went to sleep
And I can’t take it back
I won’t try
I won’t try
I won’t try
I won’t try
I won’t try

Who am I, is this me? Am I one, or thirteen?

… awesome album artwork …


motherfucking killer new single from Alice in Chains …


I’m waking up to ash and dust I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse

my milestone – 1000 blog posts!!

… it’s been a long haul since danistrulytheman reared its handsome head on WordPress, 1342 days … over 3 years, 8 months ago. 1000 posts is a personal achievement that with a lot of time, and a little bit of effort *wink wink* … was able to get there. And must say, am filled with a hint of pride. Had others along the way … 700 was my personal fave … or was it 800 with its simple matter-of-fact statement?! And keeping with that theme, won’t say much this time either, other than feel free to drop a comment, a few words if you wish. I will end my moment in sun day with a brief story. I was having a conversation with a friend the other day, can’t recall exactly what we were talking about, but I know how it ended. I asked him, “what do you want?”, and without hesitating, he replied with a one word answer … peace! Amen, brother!

give me reason to fill this hole connect this space between

in every loss in every lie
in every truth that you deny
and each regret and each goodbye

Up from my brain is where I bleed. Insanity it seems.

Where I go I just dont know I’ve got to got to gotta take it slow
When I find my peace of mind I’m gonna give ya some of my good time
It’s bitter baby and it’s very sweet I’m on a roller coaster but I’m on my feet



The VCR and the DVD there was a none of that crap back in 1970

We didn’t know about a World Wide Web
Was a whole different game being played back when I was a kid

Wanna get down in a cool way
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
Big bell bottoms and groovy long hair
Just walkin’ in style with a portable CD player
No, you would listen to the music on the AM radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on a AM radio

I’d be in bed with the radio on
I would listen to it all night long
Just to hear my favorite song
You’d have to wait but you could hear it on the AM radio
Yeah, you could hear the music on a AM radio
I can still hear Mama say, “Boy turn the radio down”
