I have a lot of time to think – and write obviously, or this blog would not exist – and I realized that there are so many things I have yet to do or see or experience. Most of these things take money and that’s something I simply do not have in abundance. Hell, I can’t even take a trip to the Biltmore House because of the cost! There are states I have yet to travel to or through, countries I have never seen, and cities I have not been able to visit. I have never done this activity or that one. Sometimes I feel that I am leading a very boring life.

Because I have so much time on my hands this week, I have devised a list of all the things I not seen or done or experienced ever in my near half century of life on planet earth. I did not include rock concert on the list because, back in 1996, I actually attended my very first – and alas, last – concert at Tryon Music Hall which featured Christian Death as the headliners, and Switchblade Symphony with Big Electric Cat as the two opening acts. Yes, it was a Goth concert and I was there to cover it for a local asswipe rag called Tidbits, which was published by a nerdy pizza-faced creep in glasses.

Anyhoo – my list and it’s in no particular order as usual!
