Ok guys, this is about an expieriance i just had.
Her eys were not jade. but she hid behind calling herself a realist.  and once again prooved a lot of ladies out there are looking for your money.  Not really concerned about  how you may see things, and If you dont match her exact plan, you are out.
I had my first face to face with her and 30 min later I felt like the IRS was doing an audit. All this after I told her I was not happy with where I was at financially. - In the opinion of a good confidant, She saw that I worked for boeing, had a house truck and bike and "things"  and would provide stability. (BTW after killing the date,  she had to ask me to jump start her car! LOLOLOL)  I was like you got some balls.  YA SHOULD BE HAPPY I AM A NICE GUY because after soemthing like that , most would have driven off.  I actually thought about it.

so this is a poem of amazment.

Jade.

Jade was the color of her eyes,
Looking right through me I could not hide.
Seeking out answers to stories untold
A lonesome heart for a bride.

Along came a spider
Must have bit and tied her
The poison dug right in
Thus she begins

Now she travels in search
For a financially safe church
dreams as high as a steeple
She just can’t see the people.

Jaded now as I see 
The sparkle left her eyes
One goal in mind,
No romance will there be

Poems, quotes and sonnets
Mean not a thing
Without your financial bonnet.
Will you ever find a king?

So search for your gold
Find one in the black
Charge that track
See if he will be sold.

Jaded and realist
Heartless and cold
Go try to find your man
before you grow old.

Wasted Time
Scott “Beamer” Sailer
10/20/2020


I used to waste time
Wishing she could have been mine
Corrupting my marriage
Burning two bridges instead of one. 

Burry the harmful memories of the past
They won’t help your forecast
They’re not for your running and hiding
Say goodbye, time for them to be dying

I thought it was play,
She was so far away
I thought it was play,
Not ready for judgment day

Burry the harmful memories of the past
They won’t help your forecast
They’re not for your running and hiding
Say goodbye, time for them to be dying

I want to find love in this cold land
Love that stands on her own two feet,
Find the one that appreciates 
That your have tossed your weights

Burry the harmful memories of the past
They won’t help your forecast
They’re not for your running and hiding
Say goodbye, time for them to be dying

Say goodbye, time for them to be dying
Say goodbye, Say goodbye
Say goodbye, time for them to be dying
Say goodbye, Say goodbye


Now to put music to it.  I always write backwards from the normal.  The words always come first. 

Right now my Go to is My DEAN BOCA semi hollow electric with humbucker size P 90s, next is my Squire Tele with P 90s (humbucker size).  Acoustic, my TAK A/E.
If im not wanting P90s its my Tradition Les Paul or Gibson Explorer.

I will also second the snark.  picks, It depends on wht you want.  Hard attack? soft  attack?   all kinds of options.  buy a bunch of different and see what suits you.  Me, for metal i like a Med to heavy, Punk med to light,  ballads, light.  and my current favorite are Snarling Dog picks.

Does anybody know anything about a smartphone app called "guitar tuna". This a free app that is an electronic guitar tuner. The problem is when I try to tune my guitar, on each string the needle first registers too high, then too low. I don't know which reading is accurate.

IT IS NOT A GOOD APP

TRY THE BOSS TUNER APP.

This could be the "white" to my "darker" song  and the flip side of Heaven or Hell.  Nice song!
a bit tooo wet on the vocals though.   I also hear Elvis Only Fools Rush in or Suspicious minds.

Oooh! Been there done that. There's nothing worse than a "friend" that smiles to your face while their stabbing you in the back. Consign him to the bin my friend. At least you got a good poem, possibly song out of his treachery?

Im hard that way.  He moved out, was a roommate for a year. He was there for me when I needed him.  Between my daughter and her BF moving back, and Covid, and no where to go to blow off steam, (not to mention work sucks for both of us) it all became a case of camping too long with your friend! LOL .  He did do some S___y stuff.  Some selfish stuff.  it will take a while, bu tthe wounds will heal.  I dont give up on my friends very easy.

It is better that we dont live together now tho.  repairs already starting.

Yes a good song. I added some changes to the main working copy.  Z suggested one part as a bridge, IDK   im really feelling how its written.

Thanks to all for my wrong side of dead comment.  I actually think I lifted that from a movie,  but its a great  line.


- Cheers big_smile

Easier Said Than Done
12 October 2020
Beamer


Woke up on the wrong side of bed,
Unsettling thoughts running through my head.
Ya’ know I woke up and thought to myself,
At least I didn’t wake up on the wrong side of dead

A restless sleep for the past few nights,
No one to blame, no one to fight.
Laying here, amazed at life
Laying here thinking and hoping I’m not right

Brought you into my circle,
No strings attached.
Gave you my friends.
We laughed and laughed.

Not everyone a true friend can be.
I’m told that I am …. Plus three.
Something changed, it wasn’t me
Passive aggressive it’s not pretty.

A restless sleep for the past few nights,
No one to blame, no one to fight.
Laying here, amazed at life
Laying here thinking and hoping I’m not right

Real life ain’t no nursery rhyme,
Ya’ know it’s goanna take some time.
Maybe we killed it for the long run?
Forgiveness, is easier said than done.

Yes, Forgiveness,
Is easier said than done.
Oh Forgiveness,
Is easier said than done. 

Left ya  a note on SC big_smile

"HAVE YOU SEEN JR's GRADES?" SO COOL!

Cool.

I've been thinking about a Pignose or Roland Cube.

Z this thing is totally a crazy cool machine! it plays bass and drumms along with you! feels you song and goes with it!     

THAT! THAT RIGHT THERE ! 

You have a beautiful song  on this one!  Im at work but will be playing this once home.There are so many this can relate to.  It is also the less explisit type of song as my MOTHER  A PUNKS BALLAD,   Yet its the exact same topic.  The hidden pain we all hide from time to time.  - Bravo!

Thank  you guys.  This poem was insp[ired by a member here who reached out to me privately after my WOT post.  It made me stop and realize how through this site, and the dating aps, and even FB how real and solid a " Virturral Friend" can become.

I have not physically met you or Peatle, but it would be just like meeting Zurf And TopDown (Jeff) for the first time face to face.  Big kid grins and bear hugs.

I remember looking for the link but couldn't find it. I found it now of course and I'm shocked at how it describes some people I know or once knew. I hope I'm not a narcissist, but I think I have some of the tendencies...as I said I know people that fall completely into that category.
Thanks for the eye-opener.

Phill - We all have a litrtle bit of the tendancys. pride and narcissism sometimes draw a fine line together.  However something that was pointed out to me privately was the main trait of a Narcissist is SERO empthay for anyone.  This is not me or you or most people.

The main thing I was marveling at was the view of a peroson you talk to on a chat or a short conversation, who then tells you your a bit narcisissist.  Also that someone starts showing signs that they think they are better than you in little comments and subtle mannerisims.  No one has time for that in their life. 

So know when to say when   big_smile

Tomorrow, Today, & Yesterday
9/22/2020

In this world today,
to reach out and say hello or hey,
It’s so much easier and taken for granted
As just another day.

Do you remember back in the day?
You waited with excitement
To share that smile and have so much to say?
With this new world I sometimes lament.

To meet that new friend,
To form a bond.
It took work and was cherished
And it carried to the beyond.

Yet, I think of all the connections
I have made with the new technology
The things I have learned, good and bad
I smile because,
I have friends I would have never had.

The ability to form that bond
The one that goes beyond.
That causes one to reach out
When they feel you need that shout.

Do you think of tomorrow today?
You wait in delight, next week should be Skype.
To share some time and not feel sad.
I smile
I have friends I would have never had.

Yes I have friends I would have never had.

Not onlyis this a most interesting fact that she is 100 and dancing and in good health, but the language history is great.

I just wanted you to know that I read every word of your post, I admit I didn't understand some of it but I did identify myself in the greater part. there is a quote; "never say never", which is what I fall back on when someone does the dirty on me, eg, I'll never use that airline again, I'll never drink at that pub again, well thing is you, me all of us may need to fly with them or be desperate for a large beer or just need someone to talk to, to unload so to speak. That's why we're here.

did you follow the link?   One pint in all this is Men are usually accused of being the Narcissist  but some ladies are just as bad.
