Switchfoot at Big Spring Jam in 2004.

If You Want To Be A Survivor – Switchfoot!

On the heals of Chris Cornell’s suicide by hanging, I guess I should ask the forgiveness of Soundgarden fans. The cover photo of Switchfoot in 2004 at Big Spring Jam, however, immediately came to mind because of the risky antics of who I assume to be Switchfoot’s lead man Jon Foreman. The photo had been on my back burner since 2004, but it never quite seemed to fit any context until now. The unfortunate allusions are obvious.

Switchfoot is an alternative rock band from Sand Diego California (Wikipedia) that apparently is still going strong today. Which might also be to say that Jon Foreman is a really careful guy who probably doesn’t climb up the frame of the gallows too very often.

    Trump The Debate Leader

    The media pundits continue to speak out of both sides of their mouths as they declare on one hand that Donald Trump has struck a chord and is invigorating previously disenfranchised voters, while still claiming he is unfit, unworthy, inappropriate, can’t be taken seriously, doesn’t represent… ad nauseum.

    Walking Tall With Donald J Trump, “General” Jeff Sessions, Marijuana Monopoly And An Outlaw Named El Chapo

    Donald J Trump doesn’t speak softly, but he sure as hell carries a big stick. If he can keep his own big toes out of the way, like newly affirmed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it’s just barely possible that he can negatively impact crime, enhance medical care for all – and make America greater than ever before.

    II) CBS News Make Over

    I see with consternation and sadness that Dan Rather is throwing in the towel at CBS once and for all. I hadn’t realized how old Dan is until all the raucous over his tenure had come up lately. Seventy-four has even got Paul McCartney beat. Frankly, I think Dan got a raw deal in the […]
