Σκοτεινός



Nikki, my amazing girlfriend, also from Yummy Raw Kitchen, has nominated my blog for her 10 tags for the 'Happy 101' awards. I'm pretty sure she did it just so she could get a laugh out of seeing the very happy graphic on my utterly dark blog. Haha. Thank you baby ; )

So here we go...

Here are the rules: List 10 things that make you happy. Try to do at least one of them today, and tag 10 bloggers that brighten your day. For those 10 bloggers who get the award, you must link back to my blog.

Here goes:

1. All of lifes lessons collected thus far. Oh man, if I could go back in time and do it all over again.... Fuck it, I wouldn't change a thing! Live and learn. Each of our lives is a finger print. No one person is the same. It's a beautiful thing. Mistakes will be had, and things beyond our control will be had. But we will all be ok if we live with complete honesty and integrity. So, number one is easy for me to do today, since every minute of my day is a lesson.

2. My business, and my "employees" which I prefer to call friends. It's a world I have created, and am very proud of. Every day is involved with my business, it can be overbearing at times, but it does make me happy.

3. The city. I take pride in the city of Seattle. I may bitch and complain (The Greek way of life. Ha), but I do it out of love. I love the history, I love being involved in it, taking long walks through it with my girlfriend, I love that my parents met here, I love all of it. I am fortunate enough to be a part of this city every single day, even if I'm away.

4. Movies. I love deep movies. Character. Unusual character. Often dark. This is something I haven't been enjoying too much lately, and I'm going to try. I have a stack I haven't watched in quite awhile.

5. Being healthy. Running, riding, eating healthy. I'm currently working on all of these, and am lucky enough to have a girlfriend who can teach me many things. Even just a little exercise makes such a big difference with me.

6. Playing music. Haven't done this in forever. But playing with music with the right people to me is like being in a relationship. It's very hard to find the right combo. I have to be really into it.

7. Driving. It's in my blood. I love horsepower.

8. Occasional drinks with friends. Allowing myself to loosen up.

9. Home. It's a big part of me.

10. Finally my girlfriend, friends and family. I have some very longtime friends I consider family. Then there is my blood family, we're all crazy, and hard to deal with sometimes, but we're pretty awesome. ha. And finally, I'm excited to see my girlfriend every day. I consider her one of my best friends. She's loyal, and knows all my secrets. She's brings me peace. Without her, I'd be insane (As any Greek man is without a good woman next to him).

καλή χρονιά

It's a new year, and I'm feeling good. A fresh outlook, actually more like an evolved outlook. Another year, another lesson I always say. I guess it's all part of getting older and that wiser thing old Greek guys told me about when I was a kid. I thought they were all nuts. I feel more focused, care less about any useless bullshit. My time is more valuable than any of that. I'll be making an extra effort to get back the spirit I had when i was a kid that I felt I've been losing in the polluted reality we call life. You know, the corruption, the bullshit attitudes, the left wing, right wing radicals all trying to push their crazy ways (to me that theory represents 2 children on either side of a fence and just throwing rocks back and forth at each other. Completely ridiculous.) I'm going through life from now on invincible. I will never bury feelings to prevent tears, but at the same time, nothing will slow me down. I miss the spirit of the older world. Sort of a "Shut the fuck up and deal with it" ethic. No sick days, no whining, no blame games, just go forth. Try new things, maintain your identity while sampling other cultures of life. Keep an open mind. Of course there are exceptions; Like when that guy sitting next to you at the bar keeps talking about how he's discovered how awesome rockabilly girls are. He's obviously delusional. And with that said, I'm following all the advice I've given myself pre-rockabilly comment and making sure to have a bag big enough to carry a large sense of humour to give to you if you are offended. .

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

P.S. Ran almost 3miles today, ate a great Greek dinner with my girl, ate some great healthy raw chocolate cake, and I have nothing to complain about.

Went running (crawling) today around Green Lake. Way out of shape. Time to get into it. I made the most amazing playlist for running ever on my sweet iPod touch Nikki got me.

DONATIONS FOR BRIAN REDMAN'S FAMILY

On the evening of September 26th 2009, we lost Brian Redman in a scooter accident. Brian Redman was not only an amazing and enlightening asset to the music community as well as an amazing asset to everyone at Crown, but beyond words as a friend. He never felt the need to explain himself and his quick witted sarcasm. He wanted nothing more than to put a smile on everyone's faces.

Ύπνος μακροχρόνιος, ύπνος καλά

We're given gifts, were revoked of gifts. We can't control some of the most inflicting events upon our hearts. I'm so thankful, and for not 1 second do I take for granted what I have in my life and my friends. Most of my friends I have known for over 20 years now. We've been there for each other, and have grown, but at the same time have never hidden behind any of our dysfunction, or some whirlwind of drama we have created upon ourselves. We've had the balls to confront and recognize some of the shit that life has thrown us, but never to sit complacent and just accept it as most of us have witnessed with most of the world. I'm proud to call my friends "friends". I'm glad to have created the music I have created with them. I'm proud that it has all stood the test of time because it was created out of passion. Not some trend. I'm proud of my life. I'm proud of my Brother, my Mother, my amazing girlfriend, what my Father always taught me. My Father and l butted heads hard as I was growing up, but it's better to think and recognize the intention they had and always had pushed across, then to point fingers and act a victim. I'm an adult and I can only blame myself, correct and move along in the path I choose. However, there are some things we cannot choose. People, close people get taken out of our lives in a split second. The people that you are proud to call "friend" the night you went to sleep, are no longer alive the next morning when you wake. It can happen this quickly. Brian Redman was one of those people. I bonded with him in a very rare way for me. He's on of "us". He never had the need to explain himself, just wants the good for any and everyone, did what he wanted to do, and never hurt anyone. I lost a close friend, and was so proud to call him friend, and was beyond honored to have him driving for Crown. I can still hear him talking, I still have his last email from just 2 days ago. I still have the Hardcore Superstar playlist I made him in my iTunes. I still have his text inviting Nikki and I out to his Fathers place. It's devastating. I haven't lost anyone in awhile, and I've definitely become more methodical with dealing with these things after losing over a dozen friends and family over my life. This one hit me hard. He didn't deserve it. Brian, I love you and miss you, my heart goes out to his Mother who he talked about so much, his Father, his fellow bandmates, his co-workers, and the rest of my drivers. Brian, we all miss you here terribly.

Definitely realized I haven't been "me". As in "hungry", so it's time to reap the benefits of being a CEO. Kill it. New ideas, new plans, new motivation. I've gotten soft and fat. Watch out, here comes the money hungry Greek again. You're next. Also, I've been reminded why I'm with Nikki. When a girl has to repeat that she is "Hot", that's Greek for "I'm nuttier than a squirrel turd." I just heard 2 gun shots. Night you retarded world.

Validation is a crazy thing. I've always been fairly optimistic, but still when something/someone amazing comes to you unexpectedly, it puts you into a shock. Especially if it's someone you have known for a long while. You always have had the thoughts of what it would be like, you were always attracted, you always knew it would be good, but for whatever reason you just never felt ready to pursue. Then somehow, everything aligns.... You always knew, but still caught off guard. They come along and validate everything you knew existed in people, but have never found. My perspective on everything feels so different right now. Completely right. Like I've known it's suppose to feel this way. The whole reason I haven't settled before. I knew what I was waiting for.
