Maroon 5 at DTE

     Yes! I am in fact a metalhead! Give me Metallica, Megadeth, Danzig, Pantera or Black Sabbath any day of the week and I will totally rock out.

     I have seen Metallica three times, Kid Rock four times, and Van Halen twice. Other rockers I have seen in concert include, but not limited to, Suicidal Tendencies, Danzig, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Cheap Trick and even my first live show at the ripe age of 14, Eric Clapton.

     But for me to get blown away by Maroon 5 is a little strange, even for me. I hear something in their music that is just incredible. I even went out and bought ‘Songs About Jane’ and ‘It Won’t Be Soon Before Long’ because I was lured in. I felt a little gayish for having bought those, but I like their stuff so much, that I quickly got over that.

     I have them loaded in my iPod and those discs are in heavy rotation.

    Tonight my wife and I are going to DTE Detroit Music Theatre to see them live with Counting Crows. It should be a total blast!

     Attending a show, which I expect to be a little laid, should be a good lesson for me to see how other music genres are in concert.

     DTE is an outside venue, with a pavilion in front of the stage. Behind the pavilion is the hill with grass where people can bring blankets and chill out.

     I have been to raucousy concerts there where it was literally raining sod and dirt because of the crowd. I don’t think that will happen tonight.

    What will probably happen, is there will be a lot of women and girls oogling over how hot and sexy the lead singer, Adam Levine is. Whatever. I just want a good show.

     I expect a real laid back crowd. I’ll give an update tomorrow, until then, Maroon 5 will KICK ASS tonight!!!


Wonderful Wife

     As I begin this journey of pouring out my guts and exposing myself to the entire universe, I want to make it absolutley clear that I am deeply in love with my wife. She is a person who just gets better and more loving as the days pass on.

     I will write about her and our life together in concert with the story I am trying to tell. Life isn’t going to stop for me to write about the past then continue once I have caught up.  But there is something I would like to tell about my wife that happened just yesterday that makes me put this up on here.

     But Isn’t life so much easier when you have a spouse that actually listens? One that actually works with their counterpart? One that actually is easy to get along with?

      I have realized this for quite some time about my wonderful wife. I DO, in fact know, how easy I have it. She listens and reacts. It’s almost too easy. I am grateful for her and count my blessings for having her. 

     I am not saying I don’t do the same for her. I try to, too. But I am a dude. This whole topic stemmed up from her just staring at me yesterday afternoon and asking me what I was thinking of. I wasn’t thinking of anything. Tigers baseball was on tv. The only thing I was thinking of is why do they constantly swing at the first pitch!?!?! That’s another blog all in itself.

     She said men have it easy. Men are simple people. They don’t need too much. Her theory is that dudes need food, sleep, entertainment, and sex. And you know? She’s kinda right!

     But as I was saying how wonderful she is, she is! She is not high maintenance, which means she doesn’t cry over spilled milk, doesn’t need to all dolled up with makeup and nice clothes EVERY SINGLE DAY! That crap gets old REAL quick! And she doesn’t need me to be at her side 24-7. It’s real nice.

     We had a little discussion about what makes each other mad about the other. Nothing came up. We were being truthful. But we did have some things that we told the other that was irritating. Ok. We agreed to work on our ends and off we went. 

     Marriage isn’t that hard when you can actually sit down with your spouse and throw all your needs, irritants, and concerns on the table and know full well the other person isn’t going to fly off the handle. You know they will hold their end up by either working it out as a team or coming up with a compromise that will work for both parties.
