…in which I take you on a trip… through the mind, inner space and time itself. In the past few weeks, I’ve had the good fortune of recovering some first blog entries going back to 2003 where Suzy and I took a long-delayed honeymoon to Amsterdam for two glorious weeks. I could regale you with my writings forever, but instead, let us take the quest to enlightenment, self-discovery as we travel through giddiness, joy, peace, love, bemusement, reflection, questioning, anxiety, paranoia, panic, anger, badassery and ultimately resolution — the kind that generally leads to three grand slam breakfast skillets at Denny’s around 2am and about 13 boxes of Nerds.

Listener Problems Sought!
I’ll be providing boundless wisdom and brilliant advice in my future Dear DJ mix. I need you to send me your problems, so that I can address them in words and, more importantly, in song. I liked the Long Distance Dedications mix so much, that I thought this would be fun. Your problems can be real, fictional, serious, funny, first-person, third-person, anonymous, whatever. Just send them over to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll turn your life around. Please make your letters similar to the Dear Abby style, but maybe less wordy. Several examples can be found here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/linkset/2005/03/25/LI2005032502583.html

This week’s mix is loud, explicit and angry. If that doesn’t sound like you, do yourself a favor and listen back to Episodes #12 and #13 for some lighter fare. If however, you are a bitter person with unrelenting anger in your heart… well, then listen on brothers and sisters. This weeks mix includes Pantera, Coal Chamber, Cypress Hill, Dope, Notorious B.I.G., Anthrax, Disturbed, System of a Down (and the Wu-Tang Clan), One Minute Silence, Trailer Hitch, Mushroomhead, Machine Head, Nothingface, Mudvayne, Drowning Pool, Slayer, Rage Agasint the Machine, Sevendust and 50 Cent.
This mix is dedicated to Matt Cafasso and Justin Watkins. Rage… we’re all sorry for the hurt you hide inside your wounded soul… and Justin, Happy Birthday, brother. Maybe this year, you’ll be able to finally grow that mustache.
*Note: Most of my love for metal was nurtured by Watkins and O’Connell and further encouraged by a Mr. Foss.
