Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuper Tuesday has come and gone for the politicians. Nothing like having friends cajole you in to voting for their ideals and not your own. Even better when they’re spreading misinformation and anything you can prove otherwise gets ignored. It’s amazing the job the media can do. I prefer to vote based on a candidate that mirrors the most of how I would envision America ought to be. So far it’s never been one of the media darlings. In the internet age it’s a vast mistake to vote based upon anything if one can’t take 10 minutes out of their life to answer 20-30 questions on topics that have all been asked of candidates. Several sites provide such questions and show you which candidate is most aligned with your views. It’s fascinating stuff. I’ve already pointed this out in the past.
Sadly, in the California primaries, if you’re a non-partisan voter, you’re not easily allowed to cast a ballot for the two big parties. No, they make it much more difficult to do that. Instead they’ll allow easy voting to many unknown candidates – which is great. However, if you’re non-partisan you have to write in a candidate if it’s in one of the two major parties. Even more sad is that I’m willing to bet that writing in a candidate still may mean it doesn’t get counted. I voted anyway.
What do I want? I think its time to fix a broken election system. I shall say what lots of people say. I want change. I do want smaller government. Pretty simple.
Enough politics. Lets get to the music.
Aaron brought his music to my attention recently. For that I have to say, thanks. I really got hooked in on the electric piano riff in this particular tune. Aaron’s got a easy going vibe that I imagine would do extremely well in the AAA category of radio. There’s a whole market of peeps in their 30’s and 40’s that aren’t being properly catered to. Here is a prime target for Aaron to hit. Mellow, easy, well done rock. It’s a good thing.
Aaron’s voice also fits the music as it should. It’s not mismatched. Meaning I doubt Aaron would sound good singing over riffs from say Fallout Boy or Metalica. Definitely a nice arrangement and a good balance going on. I also think I could imagine Aaron doing well on the house concert circuit.
One thing that Aaron wanted me to point out is that he is making a donation of $4 to Nothing But Nets for every CD sold. A charity. Aaron also mentioned he has a tendency to hand out his CDs like candy if you meet him in person. I had a good email exchange with him. I had to tell him he needs to be charging for his music. It’s worth buying. Wouldn’t you agree?
I normally suggest buying the tune from iTunes – and you can with the link above. However, I will make a suggestion to invest in the CD to help charity.
