From Vietnam to Afghanistan

I have always been a student of history.  I actually taught it for 19 years in high school before changing careers in 1995.  I am also old enough to vividly remember the Vietnam War.  I had lots of friends serve, or were drafted.  Some did not come back.  I was not drafted.    I have always thought there were and are a lot of similarities to Vietnam and the war in Afghanistan.  The main one is an enemy that blends in with the countryside, and fights in an unconventional, even cowardly manner.
You can never get them cornered.  Superior military force will not get it done.  Several years ago, when we decided to increase our military presence there, I wrote a song called Taliban Man.  Ultimately, this song draws parallels between the two wars.  Being familiar with Vietnam and the key players like Robert McNamara, of course will help you understand more.  I feel the youth of today unfortunately don't learn enough about the Vietnam War.  I have the greatest respect for our troops that fought there.

So with that little the link below and listen to, "Taliban Man."

I recorded this in my home studio. I play all the instruments.

*I do not publicize this song much or promote it very heavily.

November updates

Haven't  put up blog for awhile. It's Friday. TGIF!  Friday's used to be a big deal to me. So much so, I finally wrote a song about it in 2011.  Things I used to do on Friday afternoon's and evenings. Music I used to listen too.

Here is link to "Friday Thang."

Thanksgiving is right upon us now, 2017 so I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you are well and have much to be thankful for.  Christmas is rolling toward us like a freight train now.  The older you get, the faster these things go.

Went to Kauai for a few days. Here are a couple of pics.

Human Project Downloads and Sales for Oct

I let CDBaby distribute my music to all music and download sites. They also keep track of sales and give me detailed month sales reports.  The month of October was my best month of downloads and sales ever since I started all this in 2006.  One of the main reasons was my new CD, "Humanize," finally got into all distribution sites.  And it hit hard.  The top 6 downloads were all from it.  Overall, there were 18 pages of downloads with close to 300 downloads for the month alone.  Huge.  I am greatful for the fans I have all over the world that step up and purchase my music like this.  Amazing.
