    Tell you what, alcaponedudu! I've been up all night and was getting ready to log out,
    when I saw you had a new reply, so I'm looking, but I'm not taking it any further.
    That's because I also have plans about finally making the video I started talking about here.
    I woke up around three and it's after nine, and I'm getting ready to go out.

    A strange but busy weekend, and the final fading of my inferno astral... yeah...
    has left me feeling like a new man, even if it's going to take a lot of work to be the new me.
    It didn't melt the ice and snow, but it felt warm for the last three days.
    I was the only one out there at night, walking on the recreational trails along the canal,
    walking on the ski-doo hard-pack through the fields, following animal tracks in the snow,
    breathing all that fresh and cold northern air... and there I was, looking around at my new world.
    Someone put a video of an interview with me about Welland politics on Facebook,
    and someone sent me a link to see it, another look at myself that changed my mind about me.
    That was part of the strangeness.
    If I'm going to hear a new song by you, I want to do it all the way.
    I really can't imagine what it's going to be.

    This is over a year old, when I was made to be messed up in my apartment,
    with poisons and drugs in my food, and I've lost a lot of weight since then.
    Putting this up should help me get making another video.
    I was walking back to my apartment after a hike along the canal when this man got me.
    He's part of an artistic and political collective called "BLX" after "The Black Lantern Experience",
    a Chinese restaurant where they all met. For a group of very young guys, we get along.
    It hurts. Don't get me wrong. It still hurts.

    Hello John. That's ok my friend. Take your time. I hope you like this new song.

    I was surprised to see that you have long hair. That's funny because I had never pictured that in my mind.

    What year did you run for mayor? If that's ok I would like to know a little bit more about it, John. Were you affiliated to a Party?

    I almost forgot, merry christmas! I'll be off this couple of days. I wish you all the best.

    My long hair was a result of neglect because I got messed up in my previous apartment.
    It was better for me to leave and be homeless to get away from being poisoned in my food.
    I'm being blunt, trying to clear that up in a hurry.

    That's right, I am in a hurry. I want to get back to you about your new song when I can do it right.
    I'm just looking to see if you replied, and I'll be back again to be at your side.

    I hope you and your loved ones can get together for a mucha bella holiday.

    Hello my friend John. What are you up to? Is everything alright? It's been quite long since we last spoke. Happy new year!

    I've just finished the first song of the year. It has a quite morbid subject but at the same is a fun song to play and sing. Hope to show you someday. Other than that everything is settling now. The hush of the holidays is gonne and we're back to work.

    Hope to hear from you very soon. Take care, mate. Have a good weekend!

    I'm seeing what you're saying, my new friend, and saying my holidays were morbid is a nice way to say it.
    That's it for now about that because it's over and I got over it.
    The last three days, good things happened to balance that all out, including being able to stay where I am.
    I almost got evicted for wrongful reasons, but someone else is getting the papers, with others being served.

    You're saying the hush of the holidays, a nice use of words, when mine were like living in the bottom of a grave,
    here in this basement apartment, not going out for three days twice in a row.
    If you ever make a Christmas album, and I hope you never do, use "Hush of the Holidays" for the title.

    I'm going to be back later on, almost four in the afternoon now, and I haven't been out yet.
    It's Sunday, so if I'm going to walk and catch some stores open to get some treats I have to go.
    I also want to take a photo to show you something new, and discuss my recording prospects.
    There is a new me emerging into this new year, and I hope you're feeling it too.
    My only disappointment was looking in the mail and not seeing a package from you.
    And what's with Brazil? Don't you have any megaliths or pyramids bigger than the ones in Egypt?

    alcaponedudu! I have been thinking about you,
    because thinking about you is remembering what we are saying here,
    and I'm working hard to get a new musical life together, offline and on.
    I feel creative, thinking of band and song concepts, and I can see myself onstage.
    I know how I want to set up onstage as a band to create the sound I want,
    and make sure the musicians are hearing it as a band, making it musical for everyone.
    This year, I even had two dreams where I was at a music festival, just looking around.
    In the second one I was asked to play onstage, having my guitar, as I always do,
    but I didn't have my amplifier. People were asking for songs I used to play in Niagara Falls.

    For Auld Lang Syne, and for the first time, I was working the Flea Market by myself,
    being given the business for free, saying it's the Me Market, you were part of it.
    Sometimes in my life, when I'm feeling it, a person could walk into the room,
    saying John, I don't know why but I was thinking of you and knew you needed this,
    so I brought it to you. So please, don't think I'm making this up.

    When I first opened the Flea Market, I decided to go through the CDs for new music for me.
    Look at what I picked up first, and for sure it made me think I've got to get it together.
    I wasn't posting here, thinking I had to have something musical happening to be real.
    This is real.
    This is also using "insert an image" for the first time, not using "Go Advanced".
    I am starting to click around more and use this computer more, when I should be building my guitars.

    Delicious Grace-ivete-jpg

    This video won't last long, because it's for a Kijiji ad for the store.
    I just want you to see it, to see what's new for me, having this handed to me,
    businessmen helping to make my life more interesting, and profitable, where I live.
    And it's very cold, snowy and icy out there, so it's nice to have an indoors public thing to do.
    After I saw the video I realized I was just trying to carry the camera to be steady,
    and didn't even think about narrating it.

    You might think that being handed a store where everything is being given to me,
    no rent, an up-to-date business license hanging on the wall, passing fire and police inspections,
    is a big opportunity, but Eduardo, you know what it means to me?
    I'm just thinking a few weeks, because it is very cold with snow and ice everywhere.
    That's not good for business if people aren't walking or driving around as much,
    so I'm not being ambitious, just taking it as it comes.

    I wanted to buy a soldering gun, pencil type, to use for my guitars.
    The 1949 Weller soldering gun, made in Kingston, that my father got for a wedding present,
    still looks and works like new, but I need a pencil type to use for my semi-solid-bodies,
    no longer having a pick-guard to take off and work on from behind.
    But guess what? There wasn't one in stock in Welland, even at Cox Hardware,
    where a friend said they didn't have any kind of soldering gun in stock.
    Considering the electronic lives we lead, and how so many people are happy just to see,
    I wasn't surprised that anything electronic for home use is falling by the wayside.
    Radio Shack, what used to be a huge franchise for buying do-it-yourself electronics,
    went out of business over twenty years ago, what was two stores in Welland.

    If I featured one item it would be the Hohner accordion.
    When you pull it open the air compressor is a beautiful peacock blue, looking like it glows.

    I bring my CD player upstairs and try out different CDs, playing along with my guitar.
    And then I'm walking around getting into rhythms and singing, trying out songs.
    I'm thinking of using this space for guitar lessons, not as a long term thing,
    but something to do in this weather and while I'm getting my guitars together.
    People are saying I'm a real musician, playing everything, and I can still sing.
    And yes... some people say that for an old man I am very well spoken.
    That's only because I'm being polite... in daylight... when I say bring on the night.
    Oh yeah! "Bring on the Night" is a George Benson song, and people talk about him,
    when they're talking about me... and there's always Jimi...

    Get ready Eduardo...

    Here it is, being here in the middle of the night,
    thinking I'll watch one of the DVDs I have from the library, getting some nice ones,
    after I finished the previous replies,
    but then I thought of something musical I could do and do right now, so I did it.
    Here's a link to a Kijiji ad saying I'm open for guitar lessons.
    This link won't last very long even if it's successful, because for me,
    it's just about making some extra money to buy hardware so I can finish every guitar,
    and maybe meeting other musicians I can start a band with.
    I'm old and bold but I'm not cold or showing mould... if truth be told.

    Hello John! How are you, my friend? You sure have some exciting news! I'm glad for that.

    I was shocked when I saw the picture of Ivete Sangalo's CD! How do you know her? I mean, that was something I never thought we would ever talk about. haha Still in shock, John!

    So let me get this straight before anything else: you were giving a flea market?

    alcaponedudu! No... no-no... the Flea Market isn't exciting news.
    Right now it's minus eighteen degrees outside and it's been snowing for three days.
    The worst of the snowstorm is supposed to be coming later on tonight and tomorrow.
    I've got some extra cash, so I'm going to buy some bottles of nail polish for my mail-order lefty guitar body.
    Don't forget, the sugar maple leaf I carved out of the green pick-guard plastic,
    was painted with the same colour of the body, where I touched up bare wood around the new guitar cord input.
    The transparent quality of the nail polish on the green did that, turning into the dark sugar maple leaf.
    It will be interesting to paint with yellow and orange nail polish and see the same effect happen.
    I'm doing to use different sizes of construction nails to draw leaf veins in the nail polish,
    letting them blend in when it's still wet, using a bottle of nail polish remover as a thinner.

    This might not be me playing along with any of your videos, having to mention that at the start of this new year,
    but it's something about my guitars that has got me going, and I'm practicing on the cherry Strat,
    playing chords and singing, when I'm sitting upstairs in the Flea Market.

    But that's all about me.

    I saw there was a big dam disaster in Brazil, over fifty people dead and over two hundred missing,
    and they're saying the missing are probably dead.
    A second dam could have done the same thing but it didn't, or it could have been far worse.
    When this happens in California, mud slides, rescue providers complain about the working conditions.
    You can be walking on a hardened surface of dried mud, but it can be a crust,
    where you break through and do down in the softer mud where there could be days old dead bodies.
    If you're feeling bad because you didn't get a change to volunteer, this should make you feel better.

    Oh! Some new news about Americans in South America countries, mostly about Venezuela now,
    shows the dates from when Americans took over those countries. I like those news the best.
    I like Hugo Chavez. After Americans tried to impose trade restrictions to take over more oil,
    he built a chain of gas stations that sold gas to Texans cheaper than they sold it to themselves.

    I've got two new lines... trying to update my comedy routine.

    And, in the end, the font you send, is equal to the font...... you send.

    PLEASE BE FOREWARNED: Senior-sexual content.
    I've been looking at online porn for so long now,
    if I make love with a woman I'll have to be holding on to my clicker.

    I better keep my musical momentum going today and have something to show tonight.

    I think you're shocked about Ivete Sangalo because two of her players,
    Rionegro de Wanderlea and Zila Sexius are your parents, when Zizi Romantico was there.

    Hello John!YEs, we've been through some hard and shocking news lately. This tragedy took place a week ago and there are still people missing. That's very sad. I don't really want to talk about it because it's too much to handle.

    If the market was exciting for me, what about your building another guitar?! That's awesome. Looking foward to see the results.

    Next week I'm going to release another music. There's a dark vibe to it and a lot of strings. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it.

    Have a good weekend, my friend.

    alcaponedudu! You're giving me too much credit here, about another guitar, because it's the same old one.
    I want to finish refinishing my first semi-solid-body so I have that wonderful and semi-famous guitar to play onstage,
    and I want to finish the mail order left-handed guitar so I have a beater or bar guitar to carry around.
    I've got a second semi-solid-body but I stopped working on that because I don't have all the hardware.

    I don't want to upset you, but I came here to add some Brazilian mudslide videos... and...
    just the same as the last time, when I opened the store today and went to sort out some CDs,
    the first one I picked up was by a Brazilian artist.
    When things like that keep happening to me I usully end up being there somehow.

    The news around here about the dams in Brazil isn't as much about the loss of life and property,
    it's seen as not being reported properly because it's not Brazilian owners and engineers who caused this.
    That might look difficult from your local perspective, but that's the same for me here in Ontario, Canada.
    Americans have offices in Canada and give their businesses Canadian ownership and names,
    and now, around the world, Canada is getting the same reputation as Americans have.
    With Americans wanting to build more dams in Alaska and along the Rocky Mountains,
    all about tailings for mining operations, they also don't want Americans to watch a dam like that break.




    uh... I uh... okay... I got typing too much when I knew I was going to add this video and news article.
    The previous video was seen from the crane at the mine, that doesn't show a lot,
    but it's interesting, and gives a greater perspective, when you see where that was in this second video,
    that shows the dam break from down the valley.

    Alcaponedudu! Again, just as I'm going to start sorting out the CDs for something to do when customers aren't here,
    the first one I look at is from Brazil, or at least the artist is.
    This isn't just a CD from Brazil, like the previous one, it's a mix of a Brazilian guitarist and Canadian technicians,
    giving me more hope that maybe some day I'll be able to visit or you visit me.

    This isn't me commenting on your new music, making a video of me playing along with your video,
    or me making a new video of any kind of new music, when all of this is what I want to be doing.
    And when I finish my guitars and get some new songs together, I want to be better than ever.

    This scan isn't the best because this CD is still new in the package.
    I'm not going to open it up to see what it sounds like because I'm going to donate it to the library.
    I'll look on YouTube instead.
    You know, using videos and links to build a thread is like picking petals off a flower,
    where you're thinking she loves me, she loves me not, she loves me... yeah...
    only now it's edit it, or edit it not, edit it... yeah... that's all I got.
    That is all I got, unless I start wondering why he isn't left-handed,
    or has a chain around his neck made with used 9-volt batteries instead of shrunken heads.


    Delicious Grace-fabio-rosa-jpg


    This strangeness is getting stranger.
    I typed in Fabio Rosa at YouTube and got a lot of videos,
    but they're all about Fabio Rosa and his contributions as an electricity provider,
    using new solar technology and promoting lower residential voltage.
    This Fabio Rosa, in this short video, looks the same as the guitarist Fabio Rosa.
    okay... I read the liner notes... and I hope you can see them here.
    It is the same person.
    Here I am, Clan Watt, thinking the world is too over-engineered, too industrialized,
    and I'm trying to start a band when I can't, and I can't make a good recording,
    when this man Rosa has been called a "new hero for the 21st century",
    for his humanitarian work and electricity providing.
    If this was just a Scottish or Canadian against Americans or English thing,
    it would be what I'm used to, but this Brazilian angle is creating a new rhythm for me.
    I like it, but I haven't been deep in the jungle...

    I'm going to hang on to the CD until I hear from you, alcaponedudu.
    The song titles are interesting and he does "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".
    I've got my own Jimi Hendrix chord and effects style of playing that song, singing it like Judy Garland,
    if she had a more r'n'b or soul singing background.
    Nowadays, her sleeping and wake-up pill addictions could be equated with modern codeine singers.
    Hey, I'll get there, even if I have to grab that rainbow and bring it down so I can crawl over it.
    And yes, I'm saying codeine, when muscle relaxants are also used by singers who want to sing like divas,
    or songbirds, having a soft throat for those highs and lows.
    It's too late for me to start smoking cigarettes to get that adult male smoky voice,
    unless I start smoking automotive exhaust pipes.
    yeah... I can imagine the other musicians backstage being asked where I am,
    and they say he's outside getting revved up.
    nuff's e-nuff!

    Hello my friend. Glad everything is alright with you. I'll get into more of this Fabio Rosa thing. I've never heard of him. Right now I'm in a bit of rush.

    I have a new demo out. I hope you can check it sometime, my friend. I'll come back to chat with you a little bit more.

    Take care!
