  • The Myth that Watching Violence is not Harmful

    October 12, 2013

    I grew up watching TV and movies as many of my generation did. We even had a few video games but they were mostly the basic arcade style. Not the highly graphic immersion style of today. I’ve played many of these as well but that was later in life after I became an adult. Back in the 70s and 80s there were even some TV shows with violence and horror movies too. I can remember a few nights going to bed after watching a horror movie and feeling too scared to sleep. I remember the large impact these events made …

  • The Myth of the Chosen One

    October 10, 2013

    We’ve all heard the stories and legends of those that were the chosen ones. They were instilled at birth or by another with special virtues and skills that set them apart from everyone else. Everything comes naturally to them. They require no effort to accomplish great tasks. They feel no fear but may doubt their abilities. They have intellect and wisdom far above our own. They may not have acquired greatness yet but it’s just a matter of time until they do.
    Hollywood loves this storyline. In a classic example, Eddie Murphy starred in the movie “The Golden Child” in 1986. …

  • Embracing Hearing Loss

    October 8, 2013

    I met my wife in the summer of 1984.  I had returned home from my sophomore year at college and was working to earn enough money to enroll for the fall semester at Boise State University.  I started working at this Ice Cream Novelty business a couple of summers ago.  After working previously as a driver I had been recently promoted to manager.  Kimberly got hired as a driver and I noticed her right away.  She was beautiful, had a terrific smile, and was very friendly and talkative.  One of the other drivers invited her to come with us after …

  • Being mediocre is okay if you dont have dreams

    October 8, 2013

    In movies and television today it’s popular and okay to be mediocre and average. There are many shows that portray people living with dead end jobs, messed up family lives, and even addictions. In watching these shows you get the idea that this is the way life is supposed to be so just settle in. The characters have lost all hope of a better life and have become sarcastic about it. They are stuck in a rut of family drama, bad luck, and may be using some form of addiction to cope with it. Some eat, shop, exercise, or have …

  • Do You Remember The Intentions Band?

    September 5, 2013

    As the Intentions was evolving as a band, a very magical traveler showed up at a jam session in upcountry Maui. His Chicago Soul roots resonated with my own Midwest Blues history, and we bonded deeply, first over the music, and secondly because we were probably the only two people on the entire island that knew what “shake and bake” meant! Madi is a brilliant soul singer, yet he also has a native touch with Reggae, Ska, Dance-Hall and dub.

  • Music from Patrick Dieter’s Band Rocks

    September 5, 2013

    Dreaming up life is a process that has been described and revered by every culture and in every era. Sometimes by the majority; sometimes by the fringe, but it has always been with us. Most everyone has an opinion as to why this is so, but I prefer the exquisite edge where quantum physics meets aboriginal wisdom and creates the flesh and bones of healing, creativity, love, and yes: the world. To think is (indeed) to create.
