Here is one way you can. Donate to Homes For Our Troops, a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 and strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001.

More U.S. Soldiers Killed Themselves Than Died in Combat in 2010

Cord Jefferson, Senior Editor at Good presents some troubling numbers about the suicide rate for US Soldiers.

For the second year in a row, more American soldiers - both enlisted men and women and veterans - committed suicide than were killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Excluding accidents and illness, 462 soldiers died in combat, while 468 committed suicide. A difference of six isn't vast by any means, but the symbolism is significant and troubling. In 2009, there were 381 suicides by military personnel, a number that also exceeded the number of combat deaths.

Today as a Male Military Spouse - Her Support

It is the end of a tough week for my wife. She had some VIPs and had to deliver a briefing today. After 16 years as a male military spouse, I think I've finally learned how to give her the best support.

How to Make Beats Wrapping the Samples in Sample Flip Beats Remixes

When I make Moody Instrumental Music, sometimes I "sample" or use parts from an existing song or musical piece. My goal in sampling is to take parts from a piece that I love and build a completely different musical piece that leaves the listener saying, "WOW, you got that result from those sampled pieces?!"

The way I do this is by "wrapping" (not rapping) the sample with my own instrumentation. I create different musical patterns with the sampled pieces (called "flipping the sample"). While I flip the samples, I can hear (in my head) all of the instrumentation that I want to wrap the sample pieces in. When i finish the sample flip patterns, I go back and create the instrumentation that I heard (in my head).

In this video, watch how I make a sample flip beat and instrumental music using Propellerhead's Reason software, the Akai MPD32 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard. This video takes you into my thought process about sampling, "chopping and flipping" samples, and I give you tips on how to make music.

This video catches me on one of my "happier" days, in which my overall "moody-ness" level was low. Plus, I had just finished downing a can of Mountain Dew. So, I'm a bit more animated in this video.

Oklahoma City Tornadoes Friday May 31 2013

We have been under extreme weather most of the week, but today was like the finale of a fireworks display. We had reports of four different tornadoes moving towards the OKC metro area. The biggest tornado was in El Reno and it was reported to be an EF5 at least 2.5 miles wide. Three other tornadoes seemed to move down I-40 during rush hour with traffic backed up in all directions around the OKC area. One tornado approached the city of Moore, Oklahoma - still devastated by the tornado that hit May 20th. We have been getting flash flood warnings a good part of the evenings as well.
