When you’re a badass like @dajimmyz, there’s no such thing as a “side project.” It’s all just living your best life. Aside from his work with @soundslikedisco, here’s his restored 70s Slingerland beauty he thumps with @order_of_the_diamond_official. Keep an eye and ear out for forthcoming awesomeness. #bewhatyoumake

FROM THE BLOG: That Time My Dad and I Went to a Bullfight in Mexico

It was just about the most awful thing ever
•
I think I was about 12 or 13 years old and my family took a trip to Cancun, Mexico. I remember looking for authentic Mexican food and how unexpectedly difficult it was to find. Then, we found a place and yeah…not great. Apparently this place thought that they could just be gross and dirty and then just call themselves “authentic.”
•
No…which is Spanish for, “No.”
•
I don’t remember much of the beach, really, but do remember going into the market and my mom being amazing with the whole deal-making thing. Total savage. She loved haggling over prices with merchants and I think we all earned a whole new respect for Mom on that trip.
•
We all got Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts, because that’s what you did back then. And it was a great time.
•
Then my Dad had an idea
•
I think he wanted to ratchet up the international/cultural experience and do something in Mexico that we couldn’t do back home. After what I assume was a long and hard session of thinking, he came up with the perfect plan.
•
Let’s go to a frickin’ bullfight.
•
My mom and sister were out the door before he even finished the sentence saying we should go. They were out. I was undecided, which at that point meant I was going.
•
Alright. Screw it. Let’s go to a goddamn Mexican bullfight. I’m a sport.

Having musicians in your life is the sign of a life well-led. But shopping for them suuuucks. I get it. Hook them up with a super soft T-shirt and some eco-friendly gear. Bam. It’s that easy. #bewhatyoumake

Getting out of the comfort zone is where growth happens. So it’s good to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Wait what. You know what I mean #bewhatyoumake

Autumn is a good time to get back to basics and tighten up a few things you may have lost over the summer. Play to a click. Clean up those ghost notes. Get that left hand back in the game. The clean sound and feel of bamboo doesn’t hide a thing. Don’t just sound good - be good. #bewhatyoumake

FROM THE BLOG: 3 Things I Learned From My 13 Year-Old Car

Is your car like you, or are you like your car?
•
My family is weird about cars. Every single car we’ve ever owned. I can’t really explain it, but each car has a story and is filled with memories of that time in our lives. Actually…maybe I just explained it.
•
I doubt that we’re the only family like this, so maybe I’m not all that weird about it, but the relationship someone has with their car can tell you a lot about that person. That relationship gets blurry and it can be hard to know if the car takes on the personality of the owner, or the owner takes on the personality of the car. Maybe it’s both.
•
All I can say is that I strive to be more like my car.
•
I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee…
•
…and have since 2005. Considered old by today’s car standards, I guess, but that girl celebrated her 152,000 mile birthday recently so she deserves her own blog post. It’s my blog and I do what I want. Shut up.
•
She’s naturally taken on some of my personality traits: a little messy but can clean up halfway nice, dents and dings proudly tell a story and aren’t hidden, and there’s usually always at least one thing that needs servicing (this week it’s tire pressure and my left wrist, respectively, FYI.)
•
But, still, I strive to be like my car and here are 3 reasons why:
•
1. It’s anything and everything I ask it to be.
My car has always known how to stay relevant and roll with how the phases of life come and go.
•
2. My car never let shortcomings get in the way of doing what it needed to do.
If you can look past a few small imperfections, we’re all going to get along just fine.
•
3. Have the courage to be counted on, but also to count on someone else. 
Being trustworthy is badass. Being able to trust is just as badass.
•
(BONUS) 4. Reality > Perception. •

FROM THE BLOG: What Are You Really Asking for When You Ask for Advice?

C’mooonnn. Be honest.
•
These days, there’s pretty much no reason to ever have to do anything alone. Today’s world is more networked and reachable than ever and there’s always someone out there who is willing to offer you advice if you need it.
•
Also, even if you don’t need it. But that’s just how that goes.
•
Even when we may be “by ourselves,” we never really have to be “alone.” Asking for advice on anything you’re doing is not only more-than-ever possible, but also more-than-ever encouraged and more-than-ever necessary.
•
Ask for advice. Do the research. Get the info. Then, make your well-rounded and substantiated decision. Bam. In a weird way, it IS actually that simple.
•
But, be careful what you ask for
•
Here’s the thing, though: It’s human nature to have expectations. In this case, before we even ask for advice on whatever it is we’re doing, we probably expect a certain response that is in line with our preconceived notion.
•
We’re human. It’s a human thing. Not much we can do about that.
•
It’s just a matter of time, though, that we get responses that are directly counter to what we had thought before asking. To some, this is a great learning experience, super interesting, and incredibly helpful. To others, it’s just filed under “bad advice.”
•
So what are you really asking for?
•
Advice vs. Validation

If Home Depot gets to start selling Christmas trees, then screw it, I’m starting, too. Musicians are hard to shop for, I know. I’m one of them. Hook up the one in your life with some eco-friendly gear. They’ll write a song for you probably. #bewhatyoumake
