This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

How to ask a question

The right way....

Does this camera take videos as well as pictures?

The wrong way....

So these cameras just take still pictures....

You see... one is a statement -- not a question. And I while realize that many of you have a difficult time asking a question, as it might seem as if you don't actually know everything...

you really should just...


Being able to communicate effectively is an important skill. In fact, I can say with utter confidence, having worked with the general public for quite a while, that being able to communicate what you want and need will make your life better.

As important as communication is to a leading a productive and fruitful life we still leave the majority of training for this skill in the hands of children's parents, many of whom never learned to communicate as well.

In my job as a retail salesmen I have met people who made the act of interaction so painful that I just simply walked away. I have also met people that were so adept at human interaction that I knew exactly what they wanted, I was pleased to help them and I knew that in the course of our interaction that what I said would be understood and responded to accordingly.

...and while I'm on the subject:

Let's talk about EXPECTATIONS.

If I walk into a ice cream place and demand that they make me a sirloin steak, medium rare, with a side a fries, I will be disappointed, for they will be unable to meet my needs. However, if I walk into a steakhouse with the same needs I will be pleased. There is no need for me to get mad when the ice cream place cannot produce a sit-down steak dinner. Its not them... its me.

I've known people (thankfully none of my own friends) who lead tortured lives because they are constantly disappointed when they cannot get what they want when they want it.

Align your expectations with reality and know how to communicate with others -- you'll be better off, trust me.
