I know it's Tuesday, but...

It's finally here!

You can check out Turtle's Rock Sampler and see what all the fuss was about!

Now, here's the challenge:


...I have a gift (or prize, if you will) for the first person to name ALL the songs and artists correctly.

Music Monday Botched... AGAIN!!!!!!!!

After reassembing the rock sampler from LAST WEEK, the end result is still garbled audio.

I don't get it.

All the edited pieces sound great. As soon as I put them together on the wavetable as one song, the audio is full of static and sounds fuzzy.

The colour of the day is blue... for all the language that's been flowing forth.

I'll spare you those details.

Any computer gurus out there who might know what this is all about?????

Very frustrating.

Not to be without yet another Music Monday post, I will leave you with this internationally loved piece... Enjoy!

Almost 56

OK, I'm pushing a 56-hour day here.

Time for bed.

More later... MUCH LATER on this same station.

Over and out.


Saturday, May 27, 2006

...almost 36 hours in!

So, here I am. At the Underground Ciber Cafe in Banff. (sorry, no link... they don't appear to have a website!)

The frantic part of the day is done - almost 36 hours in. Now, I just hang... in one of Canada's most remarkable tourit-trap towns!

I just finished dinner at St. James Gate Irish Pub. (again, some reviews, but no website)

It was an interesting experience in people watching. I must have been the only single person in the pub. Everyone was in groups or couples. The other thing I noticed was that the bartender seemed far more sociable than the servers. I was sitting just inside the front door, facing the bar, but across the room from it. The bartender was laughing and joking with the folks he was serving.

My server, on the other hand, seemed almost "robottish" in her routine. She smiled a bit, but no eye contact and very "textbook" conversation....

"Can I get you a drink?"
"Have you decided on some food?"
"How is everything?"

... and each time, just barely allowing me to utter my response before rushing off to the table next to me - at which was seated a party of four. Same story there as well. Business done, on to the next.

I was half-way tempted to go sit with the folks at the bar!

True, it could have been partly personality.
It could have been the work load - although it really wasn't that busy.

I must say... a less than social experience.

So, here I sit at the cyber cafe.

Just about as social... at least... I have all of you to make comments on my story!

So, I'm gonna hang out, surf some blogs and put in some time... maybe go for a soak in the ever-famous Upper Hot Spings.

Actually... that sounds rather appealing.

OK... surf later... time for a tub!

...a much deserved tub.

1:00 AM come quickly!

Middle of my 48-hour day

The second of two really frantic weekends... more details in the next post, but this is the almost half-way mark. I was up at 6am Friday morning, it's now 1:15 AM Saturday morning. Getting a few things together for tormorrow's events then off to a local golf course to drop a system in at 6AM, pick one up from last night at 7:30 AM, then to a town north of Calgary for 9:30, then to Banff for... er... 4:00 PM.


I can relax.

Till the 1:00 AM pickup.

Then home for a rest. *sigh*


Sunday morning coffee with L.

Ah, the life of an entrepreneur!

Cat Tails

...second post today...

As requested, a photo!

I took my kitty in for a shave today to rid him of some unwanted matts and a general mess o' fur!

He takes on quite a different look... as you can see!

Now remember, he's 17... been hit by a car several years ago and isn't gettin' 'round so good... but he's home, fed, watered and is feeling much, much better.

Now... it's up to "dad" to keep him clean and matt-free.

On a totally unrelated topic... you can see at the back of the photo the attempt at removing the wallpaper from a couple weeks ago. It is still a work in progress, and if anyone has any tips on removing vinyl wallpaper with a paper backing, I would greatly appreciate some help! It's frightfully slow-going!

Time to catch up!

So now that my little rant over Music Monday has passed, I thought I'd drop in a post to bring everyone up to speed on what's been going on around here.

The weekends have been crazy busy with work - the most recent being the long weekend which was a staffing nightmare. One guy I hired out of Red Deer was 45 minutes late for a girl's wedding ceremony... that did not go over well. Pardon me for ranting, but what the hell was he thinking???

"Well, it took me longer to get across Red Deer than I had anticipated, then there was a detour at Carstairs because of an accident."

OK... pause for station identification...

It's a long weekend.

There's ALWAYS an accident on Highway 2!
(some say it's Edmonton, but that's another rant)

Leave early. Especially on a long weekend!!


OK. I'll be fine... after just one more...

The first equipment delivery and setup was scheduled for 8AM Saturday. I show up to discover a rather rough-around-the-edges group of people. I'm thinking to myself... "something's just not good here... these people are going to eat their DJ alive, I know it!" Yes, it was going to be trial by fire for said DJ.

I said this because I had, out of necessity, scheduled a rather... shall we say "green" DJ. He was keen, so I figured, what better way to learn! However, after seeing what these folks were like SOBER, a BIG RED FLAG went up!

To complicate matters, the DJ in question didn't answer his phone... all day.

OK, now I'm nervous. Really nervous. I can't stand up a client, that's just not an option. So, start the scrambling process.

After calling close to a dozen contacts - people who might know people - I literally stumbled on a guy with ZERO experience, but he was qualified at this point by being a warm breathing body who could press play on a cd player!

So, R. stepped up to the plate, and did qute well!

I moved myself to the "all old country" party, and let me tell you... I don't think I've done a better party in ages! It was fun!

Oh, I forgot to mention that DJ who didn't answer his phone all day called me at 6PM! 6PM! Then, shows up at MY event wondering where he was supposed to work!

That's rich.

So at the end of the day, I paid out huge money in "fill in" wages, and had to refund some money which will work itself out down the vine, but everyone was mostly happy and I made four or five contacts for future consideration.

Monitarily a bit of a lost weekend, but in terms of resources... HUGE GAIN!

Closer to home, spent some time catching up with old friends. One in particular who has been a real blessing over the last couple weeks. It's funny when you spend time with someone who's struggling with similar challenges in life how easy it becomes to address one's own challenges - mostly for seeing things from a "removed" perspective. You know how it goes - it's easier to tackle someone else's challenges than your own... you're not invested. Some fresh new perspectives here.

Also caught up with D. & C. over the weekend and did some fun fort building for their kids.

The yard is showing singns of improvement too. My dad has a big green thumb and loves nothing better than to tackle the challenge of weeds! And since I have a little "gardening by God" going on, he's got lots to keep himself busy! Thanks Dad!

In additional projects, fine tuning the rental space downstairs. New tenant is rather... new... and very young. I think there's lots she just doesn't "get". Some interesting stories to tell, but perhaps for another post.

Kitty went in this morning for a shave. It's an annual ritual for said feline, DJ.. yah, no kidding.. I named him DJ!

He's a white, long-haired beast, and a real challenge to keep combed and matt-free. So I as much as he look forward to this day every year!

That's about it for catchup news... more later on this same station.

Music Monday lost in the wind

So much for Music Monday.
It's Tuesday.

Rock theme was scheduled for yesterday.
It didn't happen.
For technical reasons.

The sampler came together, only once compiled, the sound was completely garbled.

The pieces were clean, sounded great.
Cut together and complete, it sucked.

I'm pissed.

I've recompiled this damn thing four times over the last 24 hours and I feel like I'm back to square one.

Tomorrow I will go back to the originals and start again.

Maybe by NEXT Monday there will be a sampler.

Until then...

Here's a fresh new perspective on love...

This morning at Smily's I saw this article on Nick Vujicic. I thought it might be worth considering what life might be like without some of the tremendous gifts we take for granted.

Think about what you do every day, and the trivial little things you complain about... now read this article.

....To count our hurt, pain and struggle as nothing but pure joy? As my parents were Christians, and my Dad even a Pastor of our church, they knew that verse very well. However, on the morning of the 4th of December 1982 in Melbourne (Australia), the last two words on the minds of my parents was "Praise God!". Their firstborn son had been born without limbs! There were no warnings or time to prepare themselves for it. The doctors we shocked and had no answers at all! There is still no medical reason why this had happened and Nick now has a Brother and Sister who were born just like any other baby.

The whole church mourned over my birth and my parents were absolutely devastated. Everyone asked, "if God is a God of Love, then why would God let something this bad happen to not just anyone, but dedicated Christians?" My Dad thought I wouldn't survive for very long, but tests proved that I was a healthy baby boy just with a few limbs missing.

Understandably, my parents had strong concern and evident fears of what kind of life I'd be able to lead. The first biggest hurdle was for my parents to be at peace and trusting that God was in control. It took a number of months of tears, questions and grief before that complete overtook their hearts. God provided them strength, wisdom and courage through those early years and soon after that I was old enough to go to school.

There are a few people who assume that because of my physical disability that it meant that I'd also be mentally disabled. The law in Australia didn't allow me to be integrated into a main-stream school because of my physical disability. God did miracles and gave my Mom the strength to fight for the law to be changed. I was one of the first disabled students to be integrated into a main-stream school.

I liked going to school, and just try to live life like everyone else, but it was in my early years of school where I encountered uncomfortable times of feeling rejected, weird and bullied because of my physical difference. It was very hard for me to get used to, but with the support of my parents, I started to develop attitudes and values which helped me overcome these challenging times. I knew that I was different but on the inside I was just like everyone else. There were many times when I felt so low that I wouldn't go to school just so I didn't have to face all the negative attention. I was encouraged by my parents to ignore them and to try start making friends by just talking with some kids. Soon the students realized that I was just like them, and starting there God kept on blessing me with new friends.

There were times when I felt depressed and angry because I couldn't change the way I was, or blame anyone for that matter. I went to Sunday School and learnt that God loves us all and that He cares for you. I understood that love to a point as a child, but I didn't understand that if God loved me why did He make me like this? Is it because I did something wrong? I thought I must have because out of all the kids at school, I'm the only weird one. I felt like I was a burden to those around me and the sooner I go, the better it'd be for everyone. I wanted to end my pain and end my life at a young age, but I am thankful once again, for my parents and family who were always there to comfort me and give me strength.

Due to my emotional struggles I had experienced with bullying, self esteem and loneliness, God has implanted a passion of sharing my story and experiences to help others cope with whatever challenge they have in their life and let God turn it into a blessing. To encourage and inspire others to live to their fullest potential and not let anything get in the way of accomplishing their hopes and dreams.

As I grew older God continued to prepare my heart and teach me to seek Him. One of the first lessons that I have learnt was not to take things for granted. I had that wake up call around the age of twelve and realised just how much I was blessed with. I take my foot for granted, my family and all blessings that God had freely given and I still complain? I came across;

Romans 8:28 - "And we know that in all things God works for the best for those who love Him."

That verse spoke to my heart and convicted me to the point where that I know that there is no such thing as luck, chance or coincidence that these "bad" things happen in our life. In;

James 1:3&4 - "...know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

I had complete peace knowing that God won't let anything happen to us in our life unless He has a good purpose for it all. I completely gave my life to Christ at the age of fifteen after reading John 9. Jesus said that the reason the man was born blind was "so that the works of God may be revealed through Him." I truly believed that God would heal me so I could be a great testimony of His Awesome Power. Later on I was given the wisdom to understand that if we pray for something, if it's God's will, it'll happen in His time. If it's not God's will for it to happen, then I know that He has something better. I now see that Glory revealed as He is using me just the way I am and in ways others can't be used.

I am now twenty-one years old and have completed a Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Financial Planning and Accounting. I am also a motivational speaker and love to go out and share my story and testimony wherever opportunities become available. I have developed talks to relate to and encourage students through topics that challenge today's teenagers. I am also a speaker in the corporate sector. For more information on Nick's presentations go to "Nick's Ministry".

In recent years, I have learnt to become independent and can now take care of all my personal needs. I can do everything from brushing my teeth, combing my hair, dressing up, taking care of my personal hygiene and even shaving. I get around the house by jumpin' around and, outside the house, I get around in an electric wheelchair. I love to swim, fish and play soccer. I have a passion for reaching out to youth and keep myself available for whatever God wants me to do, and wherever He leads, I follow.

I have many dreams and goals that I have set to achieve in my life. I want to become the best witness I can be of God's Love and Hope, to become an international inspirational speaker and be used as a vessel in both Christian and non-Christian venues. I want to become financially independent by the age of 25, through real estate investments, to modify a car for me to drive and to be interviewed and share my story on the "Oprah Winfrey Show"! Writing several best-selling books has been one of my dreams and I hope to finish writing my first by the end of the year. It will be called "No Arms, No Legs, No Worries!"

You might think these goals are too far-fetched. However, I believe that if you have the desire and passion to do something, and if it's God's will, you will achieve it in good time. As humans, we continually put limits on ourselves for no reason at all! What's worse is putting limits on God who can do all things. We put God in a "box". The awesome thing about the Power of God, is that if we want to do something for God, instead of focusing on our capability, concentrate on our availability for we know that it is God through us and we can't do anything without Him. Once we make ourselves available for God's work, guess whose capabilities we rely on? God's!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13

God has a Great Purpose for your life! As far as your unanswered prayers, remember that God is Faithful. What are we to do when we are seeking but not finding?

Jeremiah 29:12 - "Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord...

Take courage my friend for the Battle is the Lord's and I urge you to keep striving for the truth. For it is the truth that will set you free and the Peace of God that surpasses all understanding will reign in your heart. May the Lord Bless you as you diligently seek Him and grant you Godly Wisdom and Strength through your journey.

In Christ,
Nick Vujicic

Let's talk about love PART 4

Early in my blogging, I posted about love and a few of us bantered back and forth over what love really was, or is perceived to be.

I had a conversation with a friend of mine recently. I asked her if she had ever truly been in love. Her eyes sort of shifted from side to side, she couldn't look me straight in the eye, but she said

"Well, I thought I was, but it wasn't reciprocated, if that's what you're getting at."

Through the course of our discussion, I discovered that she truly believed that unless love is returned, you're not really in love.

"How can you love someone - really - if you don't get that love in return? We all do things that are in our best interest - it's human nature. It's not in our best interest to give something for nothing."

Music Monday (2)

I frequent a coffee shop in my neighbourhood that years ago, under the previous management, supported local live acts - mostly extremely amateur "garage band" types and jammers.

Then along came Nothin' But Trouble.

This was a four-piece band, three ladies and a guy. Amongst their collection of instruments: accoustic guitars, banjo, sax, flute and standup bass.

All three ladies were "music therapists" by vocation - which makes me wonder why they weren't just a little more polished. On occasion they would host an "open jam" - inviting anyone who wished to play or sing along to jump right in.

As I listen to these recordings (a cd I bought at one of their weekly shows for which I don't have the liner with all the really good information I was hoping to share today... uggg...) I think back to the days of the Nothin' But Trouble parties... nights of bluegrass, folk and boarderline country music. They did a pretty amazing cover of the Eurithmics' "Sweet Dreams" along with a number of original pieces - two of which I have posted here with links to the songs.

Some faithful readers here have had trouble downloading the tunes I post - most possibly because of the MP-4 format I'm in the habit of using. Much as I really detest MP-3 for its mediocre sound quality, the objective here is to share the music.

So, you will find the files in standard MP-3.


Pretty Girls
There are pretty girls who don't like to get dirty
There are pretty girls who sleep until 12:30
There are pretty girls with 99 pairs of shoes
There are pretty girls who jump if you ask them to.

Pretty won't last for ever
Pretty won't make you whole
Pretty won't make you clever
Pretty won't penetrate your soul

I am pretty confident that it's your mind and not your body that should attract
I am pretty confident that pretty fades away, and that's a fact

There are pretty girls who obsess about their looks
There are pretty girls who never read a book
There are pretty girls like candy to the eye
There are pretty girls who never sweat, but have firm theighs

Looking for somebody whoes main concern is looking good
Well I won't fit that picture, honey,
I never have and I never could.
pretty might be pretty good for a good time
but will pretty be pretty enough to stimulate your mind?

I Faked It
Well, me and Eddie had a bust-up,
He'd been mine for a couple of years.
I know I should be cryin'
But why have I no tears?
Well there's something about dear, dear Eddie
That made this an easy goodbye.
It made it quite releaving,
And i'm gonna tell you why...

Well it started out with dinner
Candle light and all.
I felt like pretty Cinderella
Princess at the ball,
When things started to get real hot
and i didn't want him to quit.
But then he stopped, all satisfied,
and i thought, "What, that's it??"

So i faked it, i faked it,
Oooh aaahh oooo...
I know you thought it was qute the fun
But i faked it every time.
I faked it, i faked it,
yes i really did.
you were cute and "perdy",
but you just weren't good in bed.

I thought it would get better,
I thought he'd get a clue.
I thought i'd try to help him out,
Show him what to do.
But poor old Eddie didn't get it.
At "it" he really failed.
But i didn't want to hurt his feelings;
And so i screamed and whailed!

If you must understand
A shallow person I am not.
I'm not lookin' for a Superman
Or someone who's really hot.
I know that's quite the matter,
But Eddie had really big feet.
All that rythm and motion and
Eddie couldn't keeep a beat.

I know to you it was heaven;
I know you had your fun.
But each time that you finished
I was never done.
faked it, i faked it...

NEXT WEEK: Any requests?

A week of ups and downs

Being sick monopolized most of the week. That feeling of being able to do only that which was absolutely necessary was to say the least - limiting, if not disheartening.

By the time Friday rolled around I was not feeling as ill as I was feeling drained.

Absolutely wiped.

My whole body was limp.

I was dragging my sorry butt everywhere.

Saturday saw a day with no work, so I decided to dig into a project to make myself feel more productive.

It's been 13 years since I moved into my house and over that time all the rooms have seen at least two changes in paint colour.

All except the kitchen.

In the mid-80s my aunt had this really - what was then cool, is now gawdy - pineapple wallpaper put up. Saturday was the day. It was coming down. Or so I thought.

This was no ordinary wallpaper. This was vinyl over a paper backing. One could not simply "iron off" the paper with steam - else said vinyl would simply melt.

Very messy.

The solution? A lot of scraping!
I contemplated going with the fringe look...

...however, once clean the wall looked much, much better!
Testing some paint colours here...

The finished wall - or 1/4 wall. A VERY time consuming project! The colour is toasted grain - a light mocha. (hard to tell with the weird lighting)

I foresee this being an ongoing project, but it's been 13 years to break ground with it, so some progress is huge progress!

Definitely the "up" for the week!

Give in

The last couple days have been a bit of a blur... took ill on Monday morning and haven't really shaken the bug. Hopefully by the weekend though.. this whole thing is very draining. The most effective strategy I've found in this situation is to give in, rest, sleep and put the rest of the world on hold.

Here's to a new day tomorrow.

Music Monday

Throughout the blogosphere I've noticed some like to write on a theme - say one day a week. There's Tracie B.'s Weekly Wino and Jeremiah takes part in Poetry Friday.

I was inspired today to consider a theme day here at the Armchair. Being the music guy I am, I thought it might be nice to write about... music!

And since "Music Thursday" doesn't have the same ring to it, "Music Monday" it is!

If you've been reading here for any length of time, you'll know I'm a huge Bryan Adams fan. I do, however have many, many other favourites, so I will steer clear of B.A. for now. We may revisit in a few weeks or so.

Colin James is a fave...

I've been a fan since his first self-titled debut was released in 1988.

Today I threw in Bad Habits - a much "bluesie"er album than the rock-based Colin James and Sudden Stop albums.

OK... trivia time.

What does Colin James have in common with Bryan Adams?

...several options I suppose... they're both Canadian, they both record out of Vancouver, but that's not what I had in mind.

OK... a hint...

Do you know who this is?

The answer...

It's Mickey Curry. Mickey has drummed for Bryan Adams since day one AND appears on Colin James' Bad Habits.

Here's a taste from Bad Habits


What's so good about a good thing
That turns its back and walks away?
What's the point in a good love
That never has the time to stay?
Well it must have been a cruel mind
Had the time to make up this game.
I put on a brave face
But inside i'm really not the same.

So if you call to see how i'm doin',
You're rubbin' salt into my wound.
But if you really want to know the truth
I've had better days
But nobody's gonna better you.
Well i might have had a better love,
But i really don't remember who.

It's not unusual to hope for things you ain't gonna get
It's not a crime to keep on wishin' it ain't over yet.
I've been waiting for the sweet words from your lips
You know the sound of your voice is something i can't resist.

So if you call to see how i'm doin',
You're rubbin' salt into my wound.
But if you really want to know the truth
It ain't easy gettin' over you!
I've had better days
But nobody's gonna better you.
Well i might have had a better love,
But i really don't remember who.

NEXT WEEK: Local defunked Calgary band Nothin' But Trouble

Banish uncertainty.
Affirm strength.
Hold resolve.
Expect death.

Make your stand today. On this spot. Make your actions count; do not falter in your determination to fulfill your destiny. Don't follow the destiny outlined in some mystical book: create your own.

Your resolve to tread the path of life is your best asset. Without it, you die. Death is unavoidable, but let it not be from loss of will but because your time is over. As long as your can keep going, use your imagination to cope with the travails of life. overcome your obstacles and realize what you envision.

You will know unexpected happiness. You will know the sorrow of seeing what is dearest to you cut down before your eyes. Accept that. That is the nature of human existence, and you have no time to buffer this fact with fairy tales and illogical explanations.

Each day, your life grows shorter by twenty-four hours. The time to make achievements becomes more precious. You must fulfill everything you want in life and then rlease your will upon the moment of death. Your life is a creation that dies when you die. Release it, give up your individuality, and in so doing, finally merge completely with Tao.

Until that moment, create the poetry of your life with toughness and determination.

burnt out

I've been running on reserve for about three weeks now - up at 5ish most every day, to bed by 11 or midnight. Takes its toll.

I'm home from work early tonight... wonderful family I worked for, low key party, done by 10:30. The drive in was peaceful (about 20 minutes west of Calgary) with the exception of some CRANKED B.A. but that was a much needed therapy. (The party was er... country and oldies... like I said, pretty low key!)

I'm ready for bed now and sleep will come very soon.

Back at 'er tomorrow...

The story of Turtle Guy... and lessons learned

A comment left at the previous post inspired this one.

Patricia said "Why did you pick the name turtle boy?
My husband is a marine biologist and he does a lot of work with sea turtles. His friends kid him some times and call him turtle boy."

Well, it's Turtle Guy, but it does have a story. Unfortunately nothing as exciting as marine biology, nor sea turtles.

It stems from... biology in a way, but different...


Several years ago I was consistently meeting women in the dating world who – for one reason or another – seemed to have the “mating radar” on high. It seemed to me that very little time would pass and the subject of “settling down” would become the topic of discussion.

Now for all intents and purposes, I think it’s fair to say that more often men – more so than women – are less concerned with partnering up… permanently.

I had had a discussion with my dear mother years ago – long before I ever considered dating – let alone partnership or marriage. It was her belief that more marriages failed because those involved didn’t take the time to discover who it was they were marrying BEFORE committing.

This begs the question “How long do you take to discover this?”

My answer?
It will just be right.
Or it won’t.
You will know.”

So here I was… having been put against the wall for a marriage proposal – virtually ultimatum-style… twice. Once in my 20s and again most recently at 35.


After a hiatus from dating, and a chance to clear my head I thought I'd try again with what seemingly was a keen strategy. I would make no bones about where I stood. SLOW AND STEADY was the theme, and with the theme came the handle.


The irony.

It’s expected that when you meet someone new, the fireworks go off and it’s all BAM, POW, SCHEZAM, MIND-BLOWING… and all that.

And it was.

In keeping with the theme, I was Turtle Guy… to a point.

Right up until the point where I discovered that yes, this girl IS amazing, and guess what?? All she wants from me is… me! Not to mention, these feelings of BAM, POW, SCHEZAM and MIND-BLOWING didn't go away.


Now, what was a fellow to DO with all of this? Well, I don't know much about Turtles and their perceived wisdom, but perhaps mine was a little off that day. My judgement call was to tell her EXACTLY how I felt because WOW, isn’t this great!

The Universe had provided. I asked for an independent woman who wasn't in a rush for anything from me.

Of course, the Universe provides in abundance both what you ask for and some of what you don't always expect.

What I DIDN’T expect was this:

I had met – essentially – Turtle Girl.

Turtle Girl extraordinaire.

Turtle Girl who exclaimed, “You think YOU’RE a turtle? I’M a turtle! Turtle out of his shell is a… Jackrabbit!”


I scared Turtle Girl.

So… this handle has inspired MANY learning experiences including:

How to truly impress a girl as well as the age old “Be careful what you ask for – you WILL get it!”

Chit Chat

Not much to say today, but I'm curious to know what's going on. Leave me a comment, please... some words of wisdom.

English student, Pottery enthusiast, Yoga novice and lover of all people. I make friends over a warm handshake and a beverage. I discover, every day, someone willing to help me along my path.
