    I’m here! I just tend to lurk these days, but I’m around! Hope that all is well!
  2. No thanks. I can’t stand Myles and his whiny, nasally voice.
  3. Do you consider 'Civil War' a deep cut?

    No. It still receives a lot of rock radio play to this very day
  4. Rumor of a new album???

    I work in radio. We don’t know anything that you guys don’t. It was probably some jock trying to sound cool by making it sound like he has some hot news that no one else does.
  5. The Tea & Coffee Thread

    Oh, I could easily drink more if I wanted to, I just figured that 3 is a good number. Just enough to get me through the work day (I work afternoons through late evening), but not enough to where I can’t get to sleep at night. I do get the terrible headaches if I don’t have coffee, though, it’s bad. Thankfully my girlfriend bought me an awesome stainless steel percolator for Christmas, though, so I never have to worry about going without!
  6. Rumor of a new album???

    I’ve worked in radio for 12 years. That’s not how it works.
  7. Rumor of a new album???

    Could be the Eagles, as well?
  8. Rumor of a new album???

  9. The Tea & Coffee Thread

    I’ve tried numerous K-Cup brands over the years, but the taste and smell just make me sick. It’s weird, but just the smell of Earl Grey is enough to get me out of a room.
  10. The Tea & Coffee Thread

    I can’t drink hot tea - the taste just makes me sick and turns my stomach. Doesn’t matter what kind. I’m a coffee addict, however. At least 3 cups a day.

  12. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    Thanks, man. It’s been a long haul. Many of the long time posters on here have seen me at worst, and while I don’t post nearly as much as I used to (far too busy), I can truly say that I’ve never been happier personally or professionally.
  13. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    Considering the fact that none of the other jobs that I applied for over the years ever came to fruition until I told God to steer me and lead the way, I can’t simply chalk it up to a coincidence. Like I said, I’m not here to tell you or anyone else how to live your life. I’m just telling you what I believe.
  14. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    Without getting in too many personal details about my life, this is the best that I can explain it. Up until a few years ago, if something didn’t go my way in say, a relationship, for example, I was the first to blame God. Obviously, I’m ashamed of that in more recent years, but I went through a long stretch of having lost my faith at best, or being a heretic at worst. So, I met my ex, and her faith was and is the most important thing in her life - so, I started going to church again (first times in a non Catholic Church), and I felt that it was something that I could relate to more than Catholicism. Anyway, fast forward, a year and a half later, she and I break up (and I had planned on proposing to her), but in the past, where I would have blamed God, I just said “alright, Lord, I don’t get this. I don’t understand this, but I’m not losing my faith again.” For a month or two, I was clearly out of sorts, coping with the break up, and the mental and emotional fallout that goes with something like that, and after a few months of just feeling miserable, and feeling that things were heading in a negative direction all around for me, I prayed the hardest that I’ve ever prayed in my entire life. I basically said, “Lord, clearly I have no idea what I’m doing with my life. I can’t do this on my own, so I need to you steer me to your will, and to guide the way, because clearly, I’m lost.” I said the sinners’ prayer, and got back to a new church (that was one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made), and committed to joining a Bible study / life group. It was a more contemporary church with a congregation that was more in my demographic (college, post grad, etc) and I learned a lot, and made some great friends there that I miss dearly.) But between reaffirming my faith and felon God to steer me to where he meant for me to be, things turned around for me drastically. I had some personal revelations that I won’t share here prophesied over me, and within months, I landed my new job in a new state, and two weeks later I met the woman that I plan on marrying. If that’s not God / Christ at work, then I don’t know what is. Like I said, I’ve been lagging in joining a church here, and I’m not proud of that, but my faith in Christ is unshakable at this point. I’m not a perfect Christian, but I believe. I also believe it’s everyone's free choice to believe or not to believe. I can only share my testimony and leave it up to others to decide what’s best for them. I just know that my life got a whole lot better when I went all in for Jesus, and that’s good enough for me.
  15. The Religion/Spirituality Thread

    As I’ve stated before, I’m a Christian. Baptized and raised Catholic, lost my way for a while, and then my ex (who was an evangelical Christian) really helped me see that was the best thing for my life. I’m flawed, I don’t have all of the answers, nor do I claim to. I still need to make it back to church since I’ve moved to a new state, but I do pray and I do believe that God / Christ moved me here for a reason or reasons - that is an unshakable belief of mine. At this point, the only thing that I really miss about where I lived in Pennsylvania was the church that I went to, my friends from said church, and my Bible study / life group.
