Thought I'd get back to some better topics...Drums!

I've been getting a lot of rare footage the past six months, so much so that I've had to buy an extra hard drive. Real cool stuff, namely Vinnie with Jeff Berlin and Eric Johnson. Watching it now and it's good stuff. Let's see...more stuff that I have....Vinnie with :

Gary Willis
John Beasley
Steve Tavaglione

from '89, THIS one is really good. I also got my hands on the MTV unplugged rehearsals with Vinnie, it's not bad. It's a bit hardcore to find rehearsals, but it lets you find out how Sting runs the show.



Given all the information based on factual, scientific studies, isn't it a bit convenient that some people would choose NOT to beleive what is irrefutable, proven scienctific fact? The problem with fundamentalism is that it fails to understand one of the tenants of science: lack of evidence leads to 1 choices: 1. failure to reject a hypothesis. Using this method, many scientists simply choose #1: meaning they can't reject that there may be a supreme being, but they can't confirm it either, there's simply a lack of scientific evidence to support it. People interpret this incorrectly.
Here are my thougts: Let's say there is a God,( and I think there is one) and 2000+ years ago you decide to reveal yourself to your creation. Are you going to start explaining how you created atoms & molecules and such? No, because people wouldn't understand it at the time, and most wouldn't now either. So God decides to put creation in terms that people can understand. It's quite logical if you think about it. The only problem was that the human race is slow to change and that's evident in the fact that in 2005, some people still beleive in the garden of eden story.


Back From San Diego

I've been back for awhile actually. Never go drinking w/the Irish. Also, beware rare cooked steaks in CA. I recently viewed a new Colaiuta live show and it's probably the best one I've seen in terms of sound/camera angle, etc. It's at the Baked Potato.

Had a show this weekend at Martini's. It was a good show, played my ass off. The bad thing is, I was dead tired all weekend.
