Coolest thing a band has ever sold.

Cool Stuff

So last night me and a friend went to Will's Pub in Orlando, Florida. It was my first time going but I knew there were a few rock bands performing... well island-ish rock/beachboyish sounding stuff. Anyway, the second band that performed, Room Full of Strangers had the most energy ever. Gave me something to look at while I listened, something a lot of live performers do not understand these days. Anyway, afterwards I went to their merch booth to check some stuff out and low and behold, they are selling their custom made bottles of hotsauce! Made with habenero (scotch bonnet) peppers! I loooovvveee hotsauce. I eat it just about every single day of my life. And even though habeneros are so hot I had to taste it! It was good! And made with all natural ingredients! I bought it. It was 7 dollars but I only had a 10 so I just gave it to them, to show love and support and appreciation for the most awesome thing I have ever seen sold at a merch booth!!! It has my mind stirring for different things that I could make up to sell at a booth!! Rock on guys!!! That was awesome!!

It’s Chaddy B to the Boom!

It’s Chaddy B to the Boom!

Hi everyone!  Thank you for checking out my blog.

So I guess I’ll begin by saying that it is you guys, my fans, my friends, and my family who have made, and keep on making, this journey that I’m on really worthwhile.  It is hard sometimes, believe it or not.  When I’m on stage and you all are screaming and dancing and clapping, it is one of the best feelings in the world.  But that comes at the end of some pretty hard work and dedication.

There are times when it seems like a heavy weight, writing new songs, getting out in the streets and talking to new fans, promoting shows and taking care of business.  But it’s all worth it when I am up there and get to see your smiling faces.  As I like to say, great rewards in life have to come with great sacrifices.  But I think also great rewards come because you have a great love for what you do.

So in this blog post, I wanted to let you all know that not only do I truly love music, I love you all too.  And I want to thank you for being there for me, supporting me and loving me back.  We’re all on a wonderful and exciting journey and I can’t wait to see you all again at my next show.

I have an issue. Well I have many, but one of them is going to the gym. My main reasons for my lack of "gymness" are 1: I have anxiety around the people in the gym, even in the women's only section and 2: I choose classes because I despise regular workout but they are early in the morning, which usually is not a problem but my night time job has been having up late and back to my vampire days. This is also the reason I cannot do the night classes. GGurrr!! 

I understand these are all excuses. I have everything set up. It is a 24 hour gym, I am paying for the daycare section for when I take my son with me, so there is nothing holding me back...but me! Here is the issue. All of my life if I kept in shape physically it was because I was involved in a physical activity. I played sports all throughout high school (sports keep you in shape really well!!!) and I danced all throughout college (it kept me small after I had my son). So after that I started the regular adult life of job and working on my music. And my night time job made me fat. Not normal fat but "my" fat. Too fat for me. I would eat too late because I just went a 6 hour stretch of not eating, thus storing fat because my body probably went into starvation mode and decided to store the fat the food had in it. So as a result I am 15 lbs more than I want to be. And I need to change it! 

I was on a roll with my classes! I went Monday through Wednesday consistently. This would also help me keep my eating situation kind of in order, at least I would eat in the morning. But then the holiday season comes around (and no, it was not holiday food that did it) and my night time job, that I already tried to quit because it is interfering with my life, asked me to work extra days..because it is a restaurant and people are on vacation...and all of that good stuff. So I did. It is actually what I expected, but AFTER is not what I expected. They put me on an extra day, and NOW ANOTHER day because a manager quit. I am messed up now and they need to fix it... Oh my, I went on a job talking spree.....Oh! Being there late at night made me so sleepy for classes in the morning. 

Now, there are the other hours in between the classes and when I have to work... this is where I would have to do stuff on my own....ewe. I walk in and see all of those machines and get anxiety. Why do I need machines?? So I sneak upstairs because I do not want anyone to notice (I hate unnecessary attention. I only like it when I am performing) and go grab a mat and do some ab work and leg work. Then I feel like everyone is looking me, so I quit, thus sending me to the cardio cinema. I go watch and amazing movie while working my butt off! The issue with this is I end up paying attention to the time on the treadmill rather than how good the movie is, thus making me throw a towel over the time on the machine... then I push myself. It is actually good. And I feel good. 

I guess what I am trying to say is I hate the gym, but I need to go. I shall start my classes again. Make sure I go to sleep early, at least by 1 am. This is early for me. And I will be great. On top of that I almost only drink water now, which is awesomeeee!!! Ok I am done. Going to try to make this an early night again, it is almost 1 am. At least I should be sleep by 2!! Good night loves, until next time.

Moonshine Jungle Tour!!

                                                                   Moonshine Jungle Tour!!

So, my most recent favorite artist of all time, Bruno Mars is going on tour again and I cannot wait! He will be in Tampa on August 28th and Miami on August 30th. I live closer to Tampa but still debating on which one to go to. Last time Miami wasn't so bad. And I would be able to take advantage of the late night club life, which is way better than Orlando and surrounding cities that close at 2 a.m., which I detest because I usually am not done dancing. Just for one night though, just to enjoy the long hours of dancing, and hopefully a good selection of music. Anyway, I am excited!

So I am afraid of some things. I saw him two times already, the first time being accidental, but thus launching my love affair with him as an artist and on his last tour it was more of an intimate setting, a smaller venue. I was able to get pretty close to the stage. Now, I do not like going to shows if I am not close to the stage, so I have to be a stalker online at the exact time ticket sales go online. Another concern of mine is how many other people are being stalkers online at the same time waiting to purchase the closest seats to the stage, AND I am concerned that radio stations and other contests would have gotten first dibs on the closest seats. So in this case I have to be a stalker on his website to make sure I do not miss any special opportunities. I just can't wait until the ticket purchase is finalized, the price being another thing I am afraid of. Hopefully the ticket prices haven't increased tremendously since the last tour. I was looking and people like Rihanna, Beyonce and Alicia Keys have tickets that range from two hundred to crazy things like fifteen thousand dollars!!  The shows are in arenas this time around and I am afraid, you have no idea, that I will not be able to get close enough. I want to be as close so that he can see how much I enjoy his show. Last time it was like a big party for us! We had so much fun! And he would appreciate the fact that I do not use my phone and camera consistently throughout the show. Only in special cases, or special situations would I do this. I have too much fun to worry about holding my camera up! I just want to take in the whole experience and have great memories, not necessarily videos and pictures.

With that being said, I think I will go regardless but will be heartbroken if I cannot get close to the stage. On top of that the ticket sale dates for these cities are TBA, which is making me panic more and making me have to super stalk. If you guys have never been to a Bruno mars concert, GO! I don't care what you think about him. He puts on one of the BEST shows I have ever seen. The best thing about it is it is so simple, and organic and goes back to the REAL performances, without tons of dancers, who dance behind you, even though you don't dance with them, and there are no special effects. Just a great performance from EVERYONE on stage. Anything the band does, Bruno does. I appreciate his band. How he uses everyone. They are all apart of the experience, not just backup, and without them the show would not be what it is. I could ramble on for hours about why I love this guy and his shows, so I won't. Just GO if you have never been! You WILL NOT regret it!
