Hi. Welcome to my website!  Honestly, I do not try to share this website with anyone, but I don’t try and hide it either. It’s more a less a place that I use to vent personal grievances or just sort out my thoughts on subjects that interest me – like any other blog.

I started the website on an outdated notion (spurring from the dot com boom) that we had to protect our names. I watched people snatch up hundreds of the best domain names, and yet I didn’t capitalize on it. Maybe if I’m lucky, some other Greg Percifield in the world will become rich and famous and they can then buy my domain for a hefty price.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me, here is an extended bio.

 

Last Day Of Work

Last Day Of Work

When I tell stories about my time in Japan, this one often comes to mind.  I've told the story so many times, that I figured it's about time to blog it. During my last year in Japan, I was working at a gaijin bar called "Canopy" - a bar that was friendly to...

Top 10 Annoying Kanye West Quotes

Top 10 Annoying Kanye West Quotes

The Billboard awards were presented recently, and Kanye made headlines for all the "boos" he received during his intro and performance.  Of course, the performance itself was almost impossible to hear, because it was censored every few seconds. Luckily for viewers, it...

If I Had Only Known Then…

I don't like living in the past, but I find myself revisiting it quite often; not always by choice. Recently I was cleaning up some web profile data, and I came across a Google Analytics report from a business I used to own.  Eventually, I completely scraped it.  I...

Motivation Is Worth More Than Gold

Motivation Is Worth More Than Gold

I wish it could be bottled up and taken when needed.  I'm talking pure, natural motivation, at its very best.  It comes and goes for me, at various levels.  There have been a few times in my life where it stayed with me, unrelentlessly, for weeks and months.   I would...

Saving Money With Digit

Saving Money With Digit

I first heard about Digit, through a technology news article that I had read.  It was announced as the latest and greatest app that would help you save money. I love "latest and greatest apps" and I need help saving money, so I jumped to their website to check it out...

Pass Cookie Through Gravity Form Hidden Field

Pass Cookie Through Gravity Form Hidden Field

Alright... aside from music, I like to program a bit.  Although for the most part, I have walked away from IT related work. This is a super short project that I've noticed a lot of people have been trying to figure out how to do. I've seen a lot of difficult...

How To Develop Perfect Pitch Part II

How To Develop Perfect Pitch Part II

Wow!  I confess it has been longer than a week or two.  Opening up my ear has been a real struggle.  If you haven't read Part I yet, you might want to start here. Hearing the distinct sound in a note takes a lot of practice.  But that is what I have been working on...

How To Develop Perfect Pitch

How To Develop Perfect Pitch

This is going to be the first of a series of blog posts that I write. If you are reading this, you probably share my curiosity, or perhaps even my obsession on developing an ear that is so receptive that it can pick out the notes from a squeaky door. Why would you...

What Makes A Great Cover Song

What Makes A Great Cover Song

I play a lot of great cover songs, but they do not always translate into a great cover song performance. Among my duo and trio band, I also play as a dueling pianist. Quite often we rush through music to ensure that everyone's request is played, and even though that...

How To Pack A Club

How To Pack A Club

Let me begin by saying that I am not a self-proclaimed expert at what steps are needed to pack a club. However, I have found my own method of success. I'm sure there are many other things that can be done. Without a doubt, the most important thing to do is to simply...

When I’m Not Working As A Brain Surgeon…

When I’m Not Working As A Brain Surgeon…

I think the general perception of musicians is that we are lazy and poor, but entertaining. I can't speak for everyone, but I can say that the musicians I work with are incredibly hard workers. Music is not their only job, but it certainly could be. Believe it or not,...

Musical Influences And Favorites

Musical Influences And Favorites

This is a fun topic for me. Not just because I love talking about music, but because it is much easier to talk about the music of someone else, than it is my own. Aside from that, I'm going to share some great tracks of songs that I have covered, and hope you will...

Beyonce Takes 2nd Place to GaGa in Camel Toe Award

Beyonce Takes 2nd Place to GaGa in Camel Toe Award

Is it wrong to point out how much skin is showing?  Is it demeaning?  Is it sexist?  One thing I know for sure is that it is not about lip-sync. Whoa... No pun intended. Seriously, I know that we have all had enough news about the lip-sync "scandal" at the President's...

Timberlake’s Comeback Has Odd Timing

It's been a while, J.T.. With 4 years since performing in concert, and 6 years since his last album, you may have wondered if Justin was aiming towards early retirement or had planned to leave the rest of his career to film and TV.  Just what is the...

Guaranteed To Leave The Casino With Money

Guaranteed To Leave The Casino With Money

I have a few casino shows coming up. I'll be honest, I used to LOVE blackjack. I still do - I just don't play anymore. But when I did, I was pretty fanatic about it. I drilled into the game to find a system that turned the odds around. The fact is, if you just play by...
