I also hope you like my new tune “I’m Trapped in a Matrix” in the music section of jstew28.com.
When you make music, you’re inspired by something going on in your life. With this tune, like in The Matrix, you’re unsure whether reality is real or are we all just dreaming? Sometimes, I catch myself sitting down thinking about how blessed I am to have the career that I have now, and it’s a great reality but it’s also kind of a surreal moment. We’ve all been there, you know what I mean.
One musician I like is Lil’ Wayne. He’s very creative with his words. A lot of times he correlates things he’s singing about with sporting events. It’s something that the rap industry brings to professional sports. Earlier this year, Weezy remixed a tune and came up with “Green & Yellow” for his fave team, the Packers. Weezy sings about things like desire, hunger and wanting to be great, and it all correlates to wanting to achieve in sports.
A reader asked about my home entertainment set-up, so here goes: I have three big screen Sony Internet HDTVs in my living room, bedroom, and my hangout room—the video game room where I have my Xbox set up. I just roll with the Xbox, PlayStation is for beginners! And I’ve got it all synced up so that everything in my place is controlled through my iPad—lighting, video, audio, and Apple TV, which I watch a lot on that beautiful 65-inch screen!
I’ve also done some re-modeling at home. I wanted some darker wood on my floors. And that led to getting a new kitchen, and I did some real cool things with it. Check out the pic below to see what I did. I know Oregon fans will enjoy it!
Here’s a shoutout to thousands of readers who’ve read my Blog and shared it on Facebook and Twitter, and to those who took time to comment on MadeMan.com’s page (like Rebecca, Eileen, Gur Mike, Bobby, Billy, John, Joel and Tish). And thanks to the Panthers’ social media peeps for their support. Give them a look on Facebook and Twitter and at panthers.com.
Finally, when the water gets rough don’t abandon the ship, ride it out.
Till next time, JStew out!
