what a predicament, 1 hr until i drive home to south eastern Michigan and i am on my way back from hobby lobby with some fabric glue when my car yelled at me, it said ahhhhhhhhhhh fix me im broken ahhhhhhhhhh. oh my god what is that rumbley coming from my cars tumbley , it sounds like my muffler just fell off, with a quick peek i look, nope just half of it fell off. what should i do i thought, i have no money to fix this and i have to be on my way in wee bit. i drove my car back home, sat in the drivway for a minute and yureka. i will go ask my neighbor tim for advice, he is a jack of all trades, maybe he can help. I ran over and asked what to do if I need to fix my exhaust quick, well he said get a can and rinse it, open both sides with a can opener, get some wire snips and cut one side straight down the middle, then take two clamps and put it on either side and walla, and instant fix. but for know i have a better idea, he went into his garage and pulled out a welding torch and an old piece of exhaust, this should do the trick he said. within a half hour he cut the old rusty exhaust in half, cut the new piece and welded it in, done. Thats it i said, how much do i owe you, nothing he says thats what neighbors are for. I thanked him and quickly loaded my car and was off. 3 hrs later i arrived without any complications, i am very thankful to have such a kind and helpful neighbor that has helped me out so many times when i have had no one else, thank jebus for good friends and muffler mens. thank you shmidty

The quest for the band name, or the band that i am on a quest for, what does it all sum up to. I am 26 years old and have been writing music since I was 13, not necessarily good at first, but i got better. I have went under the alias "The Main Jangly Movement" for a while now but it just doesn't feel right. Before that was Land Iron Clads, which at first had me tingly but that soon wore off, hence the movement.
I have been on the road that so many other struggling musicians and song writers have been on. What should my name be? where will i find these musicians that want to make this music? Can I really ever make it in this vast exploding music world? Can I write something worth saying, even if its only to one person, Can I Can I. "That's it" It sums everythign up that I have ever questioned or wondered about, and the music I make. I have effectively and officially changed my name to ...........CAN I/CAN I.................My CD is done, I have a name, I have been working on it for 2 yrs and it is finally complete. maybe I will call it, I have a name.
p.s. There's a horse on my shirt and my music is still found under "The Main Jangley"
