2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people. Click here to…

Check! TJR: web presence done

Whew, what a long day that started at 6am.  The goal for the day?  Get all my web presence done for the new music coming this month.  It’s now 7:15 but finally got things done.  Of course, we still need an enhanced fist logo and promotional pics but I can’t wait for those things.  It’s…

What’s your STEM?

In my continued pursuit of redefining my life so God can fulfill my destiny I’ve been asking the question “who am I?”  The books that I read point out that it’s important to truly know who you are, this helps in understanding God’s gifting on your life.  So I sat down on September 1st and wrote out my most loved passions. Sports…

Technology Tuesday: Dropbox

It’s been 10 years since I’ve been in the studio and boy have things changed.  One of the things I have to get used to is not having “band-mates” that you spend hours upon hours with writing music.  Now you can have the convenience of going to your computer, clicking the shared file to practice…

Google Glass

This is just crazy.  Crazy I tell you.  No other words, just check the site by clicking the image.    

The Ultimate Coder

I work in the recruiting industry and the one thing I’m going to try and get my kids to do is code.  Coders have one of the more secure jobs out there and there are not enough of them to fill the open jobs.  Salary is higher than others and there is a little bit…

Technology Tuesday: Facebook

This is late.  Life is busy but still wanted to highlight this week’s Technology Tuesday which is on Facebook. I realized I was addicted to Facebook last year when I offended some good friends by poking fun at a police officer.  I closed my Facebook account for 90 days and it was the best thing…

Twitter time

ugh ugh ugh  WordPress has a bug.  Just typed out my blog only for it to be gone when I published. Anyway, I’m not going to rewrite it so for this Technology Tuesday, I love Twitter goodbye.

Video phones and Rock and Roll

Many years ago I was a wannabe rock star.  These were the days before MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and other tools that would help get your music out.  Last week Wednesday I performed a rock show for the first time since 2004 and it was a blast. The one thing that sticks out is as I…

YouVersion is my Bible App of choice

  I’ve been using YouVersion for a few years now and it has helped me keep on track with my daily devotions.  Prior to using an App it was always hard to find some consistency in my devotions.  With YouVersion’s plans it reminds me to read my devotional of choice.  For 2013 I’m reading the Rick Warren…

The Power of Google

I was chatting with a friend of mine about the influence Google has on the world.  Google is more than an online library; they control content.  This Technology Tuesday I will explore the dangers of Google in a free speech world. First off take a look at a cool blog from Jeff Bullas at http://www.jeffbullas.com…

Why yes I would implant an RFID chip in my hand

I’m a big into technology.  Anything to make the world an easier place to live and one thing that would do that would be a virtual wallet that you could buy goods with a swipe of a hand.  Think it’s far fetched?  Check out the video below. In fact if you Google March 23, 2013 you…
