    The trouble with Jack Daniels is he has a big mouth, he starts off having a good time, then he goes lookin' for trouble. He drags you along, and just when things get completely out of hand, that gentleman takes off and leaves you all alone to handle the situation. I'm wise to his ways, and I'm steering clear of him from here on out.

    I stuck it in crazy once. Then I washed it off and stuck it in stupid.


    Don't do that either.

    —Be friendly to everyone, but be choosy and cautious about who you befriend.

    —Be forgiving but don’t be stupid. Some people will never do the right thing, and it’s ok to stay away from those people, no matter who they are.

    —Blood may be thicker than water, but I don’t want blood when I’m thirsty.

    —Loyalty is more important than familial relation. Just because we are kin but some accident of fate and genetics doesn’t mean that you’re worth a crap.

    —When she says she’s crazy about you, those last two words may be superfluous.

    Loyalty isn’t always rewarded, whether it be employers, insurance companies, or one-sided relationships.

    Love without conflict is merely lust.

    I had to suffer through the most heart wrenching events. I was lost. I thought others were more together than I. I thought I was flawed.

    I was flawed. But so we’re all the others. That was the difference. I placed them above me. I chose to make myself inferior, and them, superior. Fact is, we are all equal!

    Never tell yourself you can’t do something. Never tell yourself you are “bad” at anything. You are what you are. And you are perfectly imperfect just as you are. Play your music! Sing your song! Be out of time and rhythm. Somewhere there is a flock that likes what you play.

    Those are your birds!

    Don’t act on impulse, it’ll beat you every time.

    Don’t buy a guitar or amp thinking it will go up in value.

    Never shave in the shower with a straight razor. If you drop it you never know what it might hit on the way down.

    Don't rush projects (amps, guitar builds, etc).
    Trying to get them done sooner only results in mistakes and then having to figure out what project to do next.

    That's great. Definitely the making of some good lyrics in there somewhere. ;)

    Don't go skiing if you care about your knees, and hope to run competitively again some day.

    Always have 7-10K in savings (ballpark); you'll need it.
