This may seem shocking to y’all but I might get off the Trump Train, been disliking Donald Trump more and more… what’s going on?

Donald Trump is back to running for president but I haven’t been liking how he’s been lately. I’m thinking and considering getting off the Trump Train. I know some of you will be shocked and I know some of you Trump haters will commend me for it but make no mistake about it, I’m still a pretty conservative guy but I’ve been liking Ron Desantis more to be honest. So if Ron decides to run for this election, I’d probably switch to him.

More on this another time.

Real video footage of Jaliek Rainwalker himself in a musical at a Theater camp… a must see!

You see plenty of pictures of Jaliek Rainwalker, the child who is missing for 15 years… but you don’t see video footage of him. Finally, the group that I’m a part of “Justice For Jaliek Rainwalker” in FB got some video footage of Jaliek himself… sent to us by a user in the group who gave us permission to make them public.

This footage was first featured in “Rainwalker: The Lost Boy” podcast, now this footage is starting to get out everywhere.

Everybody just needs to see what a happy and good kid that he was, as you can see Jaliek looks like he’s having the time of his life and having a blast. I’ve seen more in different angles and they are all amazing and mind blowing, here are a few for now.

Enjoy. We aren’t going away and I’m never gonna give up on Jaliek.

“Rainwalker: The Lost Boy” podcast… check it out… #JaliekRainwalker….

I know I haven’t posted on here in ages but I thought I would come here to give this podcast a little plug. The Times Union started doing a podcast series about the Jaliek Rainwalker disappearance titled “Rainwalker: The Lost Boy”. This podcast gave my blogging a little plug so I’m giving them a little plug in return.

There will be 7 episodes of this podcast but so far there are only two episodes out. I listened to both of them and it’s a very well done podcast so far.

15 years of missing Jaliek and this podcast will be a helpful reminder that we aren’t going away. We all want “Justice For Jaliek” even I do.

You can listen to the podcast here and it’s also available to listen to wherever you listen to podcasts: Spotify, Apple, etc.

Enjoy it, y’all!

Just bought myself a new and used acoustic guitar yesterday, it’s a Samick “Greg Bennett” acoustic and it’s great…

I know I haven’t been posting much on here but I just wanted to say that I’ve bought a new and used acoustic guitar off of my one of my female cousins. As the insta post says, she paid $250 for it and asked for $125. She sold it to me cheap since she’s an important family member of mine, ya know?

I made the post public that I bought a “Samick” Greg Bennett guitar and a few other guitar players in FB replied and said I made a great choice ’cause Samick guitars are real good and underrated brand. Their acoustics sound really good. Nice loud and clear sound, just how I like it so the Samick guitar is a keeper for sure.

Just another guitar to add to my small collection. I’m proud of the purchase. To be honest, I’m not a big guitar collector but I’m looking to buy a few more for a little variety. I’d love to buy another electric guitar at some point too. I have two other electrics, a full hollow body and a solid body. It’s good to add another guitar to your collection once in a blue moon. Sometimes I like to buy a new guitar ’cause I get sick of playing the same one, ya know?

So I’ve just seen “Top Gun: Maverick” finally and thought it was really good, loved it…

So “Top Gun: Maverick” is finally here. It has been in the theater for a long while now but I haven’t gotten to it until now. Finally, I just got around to seeing it in the theater ’cause I wanted to get my chance to see it in theater before it stopped playing. I know it’s gonna be in theater for a while longer since it’s making real big money right now.

I’m a huge “Top Gun” fan. Love the first movie so much and the second one is just as good. Actually, “Top Gun: Maverick” is even better than the first.

All the positive reviews and the buzzing of this film is not for nothing ’cause the film is actually very good. Even though the second one is new and going different directions, it still has the feeling of the first one as a way to keep the fans happy. I think it was perfect all around. Good acting, good writing and good directing. What I was most impressed with was how all the flying was done for “real”. The flying scenes were a blast to watch, more fun than the first one. It was very realistic, crazy… and best of all the movie doesn’t take itself serious. For once, a movie with no left-wing politics and no woke bullshit. I think that’s one reason the film is such a hit ’cause it pretty much stays away from political bullshit and doesn’t ram any propaganda of any kind down your throats.

This was indeed Tom Cruise’s best movie in a long while. His acting was really good in this one too. People hated on Tom Cruise for years and people are just starting to come around on the guy and just realizing that man is talented after all which is nice to see really.

Since “Top Gun: Maverick” is making mad money, I read the cast and crew are already talking about making a third one so it could end up being a trilogy? Probably.

I’m glad I went and saw it finally. You should definitely go see it if you haven’t yet.

Happy 76th birthday, Sylvester Stallone… thanks for the movies…

A happy birthday to this guy today. Most celebrities suck but there’s a few good ones left and Sly is one of them. I’ve watched his movies ever since I was a kid and still am a die-hard fan of him. Check my instagram post for proof on that. 🙂

He’s one of the very few actors that I respect so much.

Why Dave Mustaine was “right” to go off on Judas Priest sound checking during Megadeth concert…

I’m seeing a lot of people bashing and hating Dave Mustaine for this. Calling him all kinds of nasty names like diva, asshole, egomaniac, etc. blah blah blah, you get the deal…

…. but to be honest, I’m on Dave’s side with this move. I think what he did here was pretty fair and he was in the right.

I mean… think about it right. How would you feel if you had a band playing a festival and then some other band sound checking interrupting your performance? You would feel pretty pissed too would ya?

On top of that, the reason Dave stopped the show and waited for the other band to stop soundchecking is ’cause Megadeth is very complex and challenging music to play. With the music Megadeth plays requires focus and concentration. It would be distracting to play a song while another band playing… it could cause Megadeth to mess up guitar parts, it would be hard to hear yourself sing, etc. You see what I mean? I can’t blame Dave for being pissed and kudos for him for having the balls to call them out. They travelled all the way there, rehearsed hard for the show and did all that hard work so they don’t deserve to get interrupted like that.

So with all said and done, I’m siding with Dave on this one. As far as Dave’s temper and language goes, that’s just Dave. Just Dave being Dave. He’s a metal guy, of course, he’s gonna have that type of personality ’cause that’s how a lot of metal dudes are, ya know? He’s always been the same Dave since the 80’s.

And I can’t wait for the new Megadeth album, by the way.

So the State Police is finally on the move in search of Jaliek Rainwalker… yes, FINALLY!!!

After years of silence from the local news media and silence from law enforcement… there is finally some new developments in the “Jaliek Rainwalker” case.

A tip got called in at the New York State Police, the police won’t say who the person who sent in the tip was and they won’t say what the tip is but it is good enough to prompt a search at a baseball field in South Troy. State Police were they all day this week.

Of course, they found nothing but I’m so happy and glad that there is finally some action.

https://wnyt.com/uncategorized/new-leads-in-2007-disappearance-of-jaliek-rainwalker/

This latest update on Jaliek Rainwalker blew up all over the local news. It was on every local news outlet if you want to search yourself.

Yeah, we all know Stephen Kerr is guilty and probably killed him. The best part is that even the State Police is totally focused on Kerr ’cause even they say that everything points to him.

This is a pretty good reminder, though that this Jaliek Rainwalker case isn’t going away until Jaliek is found and all those responsible are locked up. I think Stephen Kerr acted alone on the murder of Jaliek and other people are covering up for him.

While I’m glad the search is back on, I still have a hunch that Jaliek was concealed at 11 Hill St. home, probably hidden in the walls of the basement or under concrete like some try to tell us.

I’ve been following this case since it happened in 2007 and I’m still on it. Still following today, I’ve never given up on Jaliek myself and never will.

This kid deserves justice, ya know? 14 and a half years is too long. Time to finally get something going and it’s finally happening.

Many are unhappy with the police’s work on this case but I totally believe in them and fully support them. I think they will do a good job and they will nail Stephen and Jocelyn at some point.

Ghislane Maxwell didn’t kill herself, too soon to say???

Looks like they’re gonna make Ghislane Maxwell the next “murder to look like a suicide” victim. It happened with Jeffrey Epstein… put on suicide watch and then they took him off 12 days before he hung himself. Same thing will happen with Ghislane? Calling it like everyone else.

She’ll be sent to prison on the 28th… already she’s gonna have all kinds of problems in prison and then she suddenly dies.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-06-25/ghislaine-maxwell-placed-on-suicide-watch-in-jail-lawyer-says?utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_content=business&utm_source=twitter&cmpid=socialflow-twitter-business&utm_medium=social&fbclid=IwAR2QeXzeMdnRwsuEDfdRyOgjoHCCEknLk8cOjOm3_MujmUIbh0Pe8Pj0DXg

I don’t care about these sick people as they deserve to die these predators but you can’t help but think that someone behind Epstein’s death and the same will happen to Ghislane soon, just watch. No surprise, though, it’s coming for Ghislane too.

I bet the Clintons are behind it all ’cause the Epstein island stuff will indeed expose the Clintons for sure.

Excited for the new upcoming Ozzy album, his new song, “Patient Number 9” w/ Jeff Beck is pretty great…

I really dig the new Ozzy tune a lot that just dropped this week. On the song, he collaborates with Jeff Beck on guitar. It’s definitely Jeff Beck ’cause when you hear Jeff play, you know it’s him. Jeff’s got his own style in guitar playing and he plays like no one else.

“Patient Number 9” is actually a pretty great song, digging it a lot and I’m not that crazy about Ozzy’s newer music but I’m actually excited for his new one. This song here is mostly a ballad but it’s got some rock riffs in it too.

Ozzy’s upcoming new album is an all star kind of album where he collaborates with all kinds of guitar greats including Eric Clapton which is interesting really. Some of you are like, huh? Eric Clapton? Well Ozzy collaborating with artists out of the norm is nothing new, he just works with whoever he wants.

What I’m most excited about with his new album is that he reunites with two of his guitarists from his past on the album: Tony Iommi and Zakk and I can’t wait to hear those songs.

I’m feeling that Ozzy’s next album will be totally different. He’s always re-inventing himself but I’m sure his next album will include heavy rockers and headbanging songs like always.

I respect Ozzy even more now ’cause despite his health problems, he continues to make music through it all. Nothing is stopping him. He just loves making music. I don’t think it’s about the money for him at all.

Can’t wait for the new album. I’m getting it for sure. Probably gonna get it on both vinyl and digital.
