Okay so I’m going to take a few minutes just to share a few things in between my cleaning the house.
Like I mentioned in my last post, I had reached number one for singer-songwriter in my area on reverb nation.
It’s the second time in a year that has happened to me so far. I don’t look at it as so much as an accomplishment for myself but more so as an acceptance of the music I’m putting out there. People are listening and enjoying. I know that sounds corny, but that’s really how it is for me.
I would guess that you’re probably tired of hearing about Ebola. I know I am. I wanted to share a little story though. I don’t know if you heard about the NBC news camera man that was apparently infected while covering the story in Africa. Well, this woman that was with them, I think she’s a producer, I’m not sure, decided to put herself in voluntary quarantine. This meant that she was not supposed to leave her home for 21 days. Homegirl decided she wanted some fucking soup. So she takes it upon herself to go to a local shop here in Princeton. Mind you this was about two or three days after the first guy came and was sick and everybody was freaking out.
In addition to that, there is another virus floating around, called the enterovirus. This little nasty is very contagious and it killed a little boy that went to a school that is about five minutes from my house. So here I am surrounded with two deadly contagions in a matter of one week. I thought that was pretty crazy.
Another crazy thing that happened to me was on Google plus. I get a message from someone asking me to delete a picture of mine from my account.
So at first I’m thinking this is a joke. I even responded to the person that way, but they were serious. So I’m saying to myself, this person must be on crack.I looked at his account and he had my picture as his profile picture. So now I’m a little pissed off. What the fuck is going on I’m asking myself. So I give the guy chance to remove the picture from his profile which he did and I thought that was the end of it. The next day, I get another message from a friend of his. He’s questioning me as to why I stole his friend’s picture. I really didn’t have the patience, so I shut him down pretty quickly. Something told me to revisit the guys profile just to make sure that he’d remove my picture and that there were no others. It turns out this guy was using my picture to catfish dudes. So I’m saying to myself, this is all I need. I already have a problem with people mistaking me for someone else. All I need now is for some guy to come running up to me on the street thinking something is up. I am explicitly heterosexual. That would not be a pretty sight.
So I reported him and blocked both of them. It was a real freaky experience.my ex-girlfriend was a model and people would steal her pictures all the time. They were everywhere. So I learned a lot from that experience but having it happen to you is a whole Nother dimension. You feel violated and you seriously don’t know what that person has done using your face. I was completely creeped out so I thought I’d share that.
Why would anybody want to look like me anyway?
Okay so here’s some of my latest stuff. Check it out let me know what you think
