Stuff Happens!

Interesting happenings… Just got a call from Randy about the gig audition from Monday, we got the gig! But it’s not until December! Well, it’s better than not getting it!!

Also, went out to the pool today, Trent’s swimming and I thought I’d try to see if my laptop would stretch out to the pool… and behold! I am typing this poolside… very cool. Damn wireless is great :)

Big exciting news today

But I don’t wanna let the cat out of the bag just yet… Lets just say there are plans in the works for me to interview the lead singer of one of my favorite Canadian bands from the 80’s/90’s… And if you’re a music fan from back then, you’ve heard them… Their big hit came out in 1987… I’ve seen them in concert twice (both in Windsor) and have all their CDs! He’s given me the okay to play any of their songs, so I’ll probably play one on the next podcast… Stay subscribed!

Sever flesh and bone and offer it to me

Got back from the NIN: With Teeth listening party – good album – not as good as I’d hoped, but still glad I bought a pre-release copy of it! It’ll still be a good album, and probably will sound better the 2nd or more time around…

Got quite a bit of audio from the trip, so I’ll slice that up and serve it to you soon… so that means I’ve got some good interesting podcasts coming your way in the coming days… stay tuned!!

I’m gonna get so high

Happy Easter everybody out there in the internet world!

Hope everyone had a great day! Just got home, and coming down from the sugar high… lol

Ever notice how when ya eat a row of peeps, you get this horrible sugar headache for a minute or two? OH MY GOD…. oh… wait… it’s still easter, I shouldn’t be saying ‘god’… nor should I swear… shit. Man, I’m gonna go to hell I’m sure… damn.

Ummm… okay, well… hopefully I’ll be around tomorrow, unless god strikes me down tonight for saying the shitty words that I’ve been saying… ummm…

Happy Easter Everybody!


I want to watch it come down

Ok, my last podcast I said that I probably wouldn’t have another one for a few more days – but decided to make another one sooner than that! And this is 1/2 the length and size! Who says length/size doesn’t matter?

So here’s Zaldor’s World #2!

This podcast takes you on the journey from work to picking up Trent, and dinner with Trent… And I close with the song Kirk McFee said he liked the most of all his songs, Purple Room. Enjoy!

Covered in hope.. and vaseline…

Well, I had thought about making another podcast tonight, but didn’t turn out that way.

Maybe will do one in a day or so – I need to improve the abysmalness that was my first podcast! I’m sorry for the poor quality of the ‘mobile’ recordings, i’m working on fixing that – but it’s not really designed to be cd-quality, more like something to give you a taste of what it feels like to be there… and I hope, even with the poor quality, you could tell that.

I’m open to any and all constructive criticism, suggestions, or anyone that wants me to just shut the hell up… Post a comment!!

The weekend was good – lots of Karaoke (as you heard some if ya listened to the Podcast), and Finding Nemo on Ice today… That was good, but pretty much just the movie on ice… Still worth the money, and Trent enjoyed it – which is what’s important!

Back to work tomorrow, ugh – I feel it’s gonna be a hell of a week too.

the me that you know he doesn’t come around much – that part of me isn’t here anymore

Real quick – before I leave for work… after work last night, and after my workout, I went out and bought a digital voice recorder… and let me tell you, it’s gonna be fun! I must have recorded about 2 hours worth of raw stuff, now this weekend I’ll be condensing it into 5-10 minutes, just to give all of the world a little sample of what they might expect on Zaldor’s Podcast… I plan on it being a combination of mobile stuff (interviews, music, stuff – out on the road), and just banter… it should be interesting and entertaining… So stay tuned, I’ll try to get the Podcast prequel (?) out by the end of the weekend!

i’ve done all i can do, could i please come with you?

Last night my mom and I took Trent out for his 7th Birthday dinner – He picked the place, Red Robin! And just like last year (he picked it last year too), they sung ‘happy birthday’ to him!


This time they sung it to the theme from ‘The Flintstones’ – Very good!! :)

Had a great time, he loved eating the onion rings


– but didn’t eat much of the ice cream sundae he got for his birthday…

Strange how my son’s not a big cake and ice cream fan… guess it’s not a bad thing though :)

After we got home, he received a few more presents – I was so geeked that the stuffed Sonic The Hedgehog I bought for him arrived today!


It was shipped all the way from Hong Kong!


Of course, all fun and no work isn’t good – so after he opened his presents, he had to do some math homework… 😉

But all in all, a great birthday dinner… :)

I still find it hard to believe that 1) I actually have a son and 2) that he’s turning seven today!! He is truly the greatest thing in my life, and i’m so glad that he’s here, and I am extremely proud of him and how well he is becoming a smart, funny, fun, intelligent, and great all around boy. I look forward to each day I get to spend with him, and wish I could spend more with him than I already do!

Happy Birthday Trent – May you have many many many more fun birthdays!! I LOVE YOU!

Within…Take in…The extent of my sin

Well, since I have so much fun with the WPGallery plugin, I’ve decided to share pictures from my Karaoke outings… I’ve added the pics from last night’s outing, but I’ll put up more in the near future too… Maybe it’ll give ya a good idea how crazy it can sometimes be –
This bar last night is my favorite place to go, a place where I can be myself … I always (well, most always) have a great time here…

i am the voice inside your head

This week has actually gone by pretty quick… gearing up for the weekend, Trent’s 7th birthday party! This year we’re doing Laser Tag – and should be a blast by all :) I’ll have pictures on Sunday!

Did a little Karaoke last night, but nothing too exciting… Still feeling under the weather, but not bad… just a nagging cough… it’ll be gone soon. Thankfully it doesn’t hinder me going to the gym – I went Monday and Tuesday… and I’ll be there tomorrow and Friday! :)

Guess I should post?

Ok, so I’ve been a tad busy… Between working, working out, karaoke, and helping with a new band… So tonight I’m exausted, but I wanna post something… anything… lol

This week was a great one for my workout, I finally got the hang of using the eliptical machine, and am using that instead of the treadmill for my cardio – I actually am enjoying that better! Also, yesterday, I weighed myself – since it would be exactly 1 month since I started – and I was very pleased to see that I’ve lost 15 lbs!!! Talk about a nice surprise!! And it only fueled my drive to continue and continue harder!!

I actually look forward to working out each day – I never thought I’d say that. I miss working out when I skip a day! Yesterday I was kinda pressed for time to work out, but I did it anyways – and I was pissed when I found out when I got outta the gym that my early evening plans were cancelled – I was going to take pictures of the new band – and had I known that the plans were cancelled, I would have probably worked out for another 30 minutes… Who the fuck would think I’d be saying that to myself 2 months or so ago? Not me!

Tomorrow, Trent and I will be going to play laser tag for the first time together – I can’t wait! I know he can’t either… of course, we’ll play on the same team for a game or two – then watch out, we’ll be against each other! :)

Anyways, that’s my mind-dump for the moment… there’s more to dump out, just don’t know how to put it all into words sometimes…
