This is my first blog under the subheading of "Personal". In it I discuss what to expect in this blog, and what I intend to make of it.
My farewell Talk : Knowledge
This is the last talk or sermon I gave in the Maple Ridge ward. I discuss the differences between secular knowledge and spiritual knowledge and why it is important to know the differance.
Welcome to the delightful little spot I have prepared for my personal blogs. As the name may infer this subtopic is to about me! About my plans, about what’s happening in life, about my history, about experiences that shaped me, about my plans for my future, and little tidbits of myself… Which is why this is going to be the most neglected section of my blog.
I am generally a quiet person, and in general a much closed person, I don’t confide very much, I don’t share special experiences, I don’t tell you who I like, I don’t say when I’m sick, I don’t say when I feel like crud. I’m trying to change this to a degree because I realize that I need to rely on people and if I can’t do that then I’m going to live a very problematic life.
So what can you expect in this section? Not a whole lot! But I’m going to try to post on a regular basis. Though I admit the topic often bores me, and undoubtedly would bore you if I actually posted on a frequent basis, so I will limit it to updates and important events. Thanks for checking this out. Give me ideas on what to put here! Have a good one guys.
My first post under the subtitle "Political". It contains an explanation of what this topic is about, where I come from in a political viewpoint, a brief viewpoint of mine on the US. Also contains purpose of topic, and what to expect.
Credit: The American Way - Park I
This is the first section of a series entitled “Credit: The American way”, which purpose is to discuss financial issues in society yesterday, today and tomorrow. This first increment of series will deal with personal debts, the increase thereof, and the issues that we face because of it.
Hey! Welcome to my Political section of my site. Here I will be discussing current events, past events, and future events. The topic “Political” may be a little misleading, as I will undoubtedly dwell more on events rather than the actual current politics, even more so in Canadian politics. A better heading may be Current events, or World Events. But neither would be quite true, so I stuck with the broader “Political”.
As I am Canadian I tend to have a very critical view on government and the United States, also because I am Canadian I have a very patriotic Nature, but not in the way that many Americans would recognize. Yes I criticize my government, yes I realize that Canada’s military is quantitatively inferior to the United States, and yes I believe in cultural diversity. Yet I have great love and appreciation for my country and don’t wish to live outside it for any long period of time. This I believe is a more helpful patriotism then the blind ignorant patriotism I have seen in some Americans.
I love history, and as such I will also talk about events hundreds and thousands of years back, and their effect or possible effects on society and a few “What if” situations. I will explore reasons and trends in society, how past events mirror current circumstances and how we cannot be so ignorant to think it won’t happen again.
In this section I will also talk about current events, on a ‘while they happen’ basis. This includes politics, sports events, technology, science, and news in general.
A center the I have is event and politics in the United States Of America, I will often speak of American politics and events, I am at times critical, maybe more often than not, but it is better to be overcritical of ones methods and government then to say what a great job they are doing when they’re not doing a good job at all…. Ok time to stop hating on the American, to be totally honest awareness is growing, and ignorance is being lost in America, good on them! Let me help you a bit. Enjoy!
This is my first post under the subtitle of "Religion". It gives a brief background of my religious progression. It outlines what you can expect to see in this subtopic, along with the purposes of the topic.
The Worlds Religious Composition
This article discussing the major world religions today, and gives a brief summery of their origins, history, leaders, beliefs and sacred documents. It discusses the worlds religious composition by adherents for the better understanding and acceptance of those of faith around us.
My first post in the "Music" subheading. It discusses the purpose of the Music subtopic, my goals, what to expect, along with some of my basic musical history.
My Musical Alignment
A musical history of myself, including both my musical talents and my musical tastes. Also includes my past influences and present likes and dislikes. This is important to know so you may know my basis and referace points, in my views.
Musical Review : Linkin Park - Minutes To Midnight
My musical review of the new Linkin Park album "Minutes To Midnight". which includes link to hear the full songs, watch the music videos, and read the lyrics.
Musical Equipment Review : Digitech GNX4 Workstation
My musical review of Digitechs GNX 4 Workstation, a amp modeler and effects board. I discuss the evolution of the GNX series, the alternative options, and examine the GNX4.
My first post on blogger, an introduction to myself and my views. I outline my purposes for this site, and the format I will be using along with a brief outline of my history and education.
So this is my Musical Kick off post. Personally I have always loved music, weather its hard rock or classical. I have a particular appreciation for classical style music, especially classical guitar. When I first really started to get addicted to music when I was around 10, I listened to the radio and recorded some songs off the radio onto my tape deck. I progressed and started using the internet, and only in the last couple years have I really been buying music on a regular basis.
The first part of this blog will be discussing music in general, the quality, the current popular genres and songs, the classics, looking for people who really know what they were doing in the music industry and in the musical field. I plan to post several reviews of CD’s, but keep in mind that I have my own tastes and as with any review a lot of its content if not most is subject to what I value in music, and what I consider ‘good’. That being said if you find your musical tastes are similar to mine then you can rely more on my reviews then someone who’s into hard core gangster rap (which I am not).
The second part to this blog will be discussing musical composition, instruments, gear, probably a little bit of theory if I feel I want to post some. Most of these have a general center on the garage band, and an even more intense focus on the guitar itself, as I am also an addicted guitar player. Also I record music both digitally and a few analog recordings, I record onto my equipment and/or onto my computer so in all likelihood I will be discussing computer musical software and recording software and technique. Also in this section I will be giving reviews on various items (once again usually guitar related).
That’s all for this post! Have a good one!
