there's a difference between, tame and domesticated.  you'll never be able to domesticate it, that takes generations of breeding.  a tame animal is comfortable around humans, but it's still wild and unpredictable deep down.  you can't really make a pet out of a tame animal,  just an animal, that tolerates you a bit.

I have met a wild fox way up in Northern Canada that would come to my cabin every night while the sun was setting, (around 11pm) and eat hotdogs right out of my hand.  He would stuff his mouth and run back to feed his pups.   There was one guy who lived in this little village all by himself for 6 months out of the year, while he guided moose and bear hunts.  During the day, if this guy was cooking hamburgers for lunch, he'd cook a little extra for the fox.  One time i was in his kitchen talking, and the fox just trotted in walked up to the table and snatched a hamburger like he belonged there. The guy said the foxes were so comfortable with him that he could reach into the den, take the pups out and roll around on the ground and wrestle with them.  

It was definitely one of the coolest experiences of my life, feeding it, but first of all, I think foxes are a lot different than wolves, smaller and probably less dangerous.  And second, this guy had an amazing level of comfort with these animals, and lived alone in the middle of the Canadian wilderness.  He thought about taking a pup and raising it, but even this guy decided it would be a bad idea.  So if it was a bad idea for that guy, it's probably a bad idea for you too.  

although, don't feel bad for thinking about it.  I think we would all secretly want to tame a wolf too, if we could.

haha!  I was just about to post this.  this kid will set us up for success for years to come.  "I can't wait to see what kind of Amazing problems are in store for you."

I feel like he has single handedly won a game or 2 for every team he has been on.  

I thought he proved in Carolina, that if you give him a vertical offense, a big armed QB, and some playing time, he will produce if you throw him the ball.  I was stoked for him going to Arizona because I thought he'd get a lot of playing time as a deep threat in Bruce Arian's offense, but as soon as reports came out that rookie John Brown was excelling in training camp, playing essentially the same role, i knew they would go with the younger guy with promise over the old guy.  

I'd love it if he was on the Browns, but i doubt they'd use him right either.  Maybe he should go back to Carolina.

I'm a Composer/ Guitarist living down in Nashville.  Since the income is irregular, I try to be as diverse and have as many hooks in the water as I can, whichever hook is getting the bites, that's the one I focus on.  My main income is teaching private guitar lessons as well as composing stock music for licensing in tv, film, and video use. (Just starting this job, I'm pretty excited about it.)  I'm trained in both classical and commercial music, so I take studio session gigs, or string arranging and orchestrating gigs as they come along.  I used to tour all the time, but my health has not been good enough for the road the last few years.  Hope to get back out there again someday though.  

Comment 22 Feb 2015

no, I think he meant that accomplished guys with name recognition like Mike Miller and Shawn Marion not even getting on the court during extended garbage time, shows depth in front of them.  Although, I think I read somewhere that Marion has a hip injury?

Comment 22 Feb 2015

Here's a question, I see it's pretty unanimous that everyone says we need/needed a back up Center and backup point guard.  But i haven't seen anyone mention that Blatt's offense requires a stretch 4 to operate most efficiently, and Kevin Love is the only stretch 4 on the team.  If he goes down we can't run the same plays, and the offense looks bad, like it did in the most recent game against Chicago, when Love's eye was injured.  Isn't our biggest need a backup stretch 4?  or is Lebron the backup stretch 4?   he'd be great at it, but I just can't imagine him being limited to that role.

Comment 22 Feb 2015

Perkins?  i always thought of him as a villain, he certainly won't be my favorite player, but i can adjust to him being on the team.  we did need someone like him and he should get the job done.  Larry Sanders would have been perfect, but he's not playing this year, so I was secretly hoping they'd  renew their interest in our boy Greg Oden.  I'm not sorry if I'm a homer,  I just don't have it in me to give up on that guy.  i want to see him redeemed, successful, and happy again.  preferably, all in a Cavs uniform. 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Yes!!!!!!!!  haha this is awesome!  i had a feeling all night that he was going to make it. Celebrate today 618!  even if all you can muster is a introspective appreciation for the little things, celebrate.  We're so glad you're still here.  And feel absolutely no humiliation at all.  An overwhelming amount of us have all been in a similar place at some point, and so we totally understand how difficult it is to overcome.  But you did it!!!!!!!!  I'm impressed with your strength, i know it took a lot.  Congratulations.

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Yes!!!!!!  what a relief!   I had a feeling he was still with us.  !!!!!

Comment 20 Feb 2015

Why?  what is it that's troubling you?  feel free to talk to us, it's probably better to vent to us, and get it off your chest, than to do something hasty. we're here for you.

They say it's between him and Liszt.  but if the tie breaker is comparing the music they composed, Chopin slays him.   80% of the pieces Liszt wrote, were just so he could show off his ridiculous playing skills, and not so much about actually writing good music.  when he wanted to, he could write some good stuff, but Chopin still slays him.

was Terry glaze Pantera's singer on their first album, when they looked like a glam rock band?  If you haven't seen it, you gotta look up that album cover.  Dime bag Daryl is listed as "Diamond" Daryl.  it's a mind freak.

Comment 20 Feb 2015

I love both of those guys equally.  i can't choose.  both are super nice dudes.  gun to my head though, I think I pick Jesse. i've never met him, but Jesse actually wrote my worship band a fan letter a few years ago, and it meant a lot to me, so for that reason, i'm going with him.  

Then again, i was at a show once, where a skinhead in the crowd yelled some racist remarks at Howard and Howard actually stopped the crowd from kicking the guy's ass right then and there.  I admire that dude's character.  ...tough choice...

yeah man, it bums me out that no one strives to create masterpieces anymore.  not just in music but in all art, literature, film.  no one even wants to take the time to study and put in the work to really master their art form.  everyone thinks they're a prodigy, because their hero might've been, and that they will just "stumble" into great idea after great idea.  just think of all the great art we're missing out on because our most creative minds don't want to put in the work to become masters anymore.  We celebrate mediocrity these days.  not saying i hate modern music at all, I love it, I make a living playing it, just, as someone with a thorough knowledge of the subject, they are completely different levels.  the difference between arts and crafts.  the really good ones these days, find a way to interject art into their craft, so that we get nuggets of creativity in an easily accessible and digestible delivery.

Not a great movie, but I gladly went to the theatre on opening night and watched the whole thing with a huge smile on my face, because it was about the Browns.

Comment 15 Feb 2015

I agree, there was a lot of hype about Braxton's progress in mastering the offense last offseason.  iirc there was even talk of Brax calling his own plays sometimes?  We just never got to see his progress come to fruition on the field.  i hope he gets his arm strength back because i can't wait to see it.  I have a feeling that a lot of the offensive efficiency we saw last year has less to do with the QB and more to do with Herman opening up the passing game a few games into the season.  I feel like that was the plan all along.  year's 1 & 2 our personnel was besy suited for the run game, and our WR's were a "clown show", so naturally, we focus on the run game first, recruit some receivers and H-back's, train them up and have the pass game up to snuff and ready to roll by year 3.  Now, we're a balanced offense.
