How did I know that on that night, my obsession which would ultimately put me right here where I am today, would begin? --an obsession that would, in retrospect, lead me to the conclusion that I just plain don't have the moxy to thrive in the music industry as a component of commercial record production? I stumbled on the song. A song that was once right there-- right under my nose two years earlier-- a time when I was too busy living the life of the RIM student to notice that there was a diamond in the rough. I could have picked up on it then and skipped years of sifting through the paradoxes that would be the countless artists and bands that I invested time in -- you see, there were the inspired but lazy folks -- those who could talk, but barely crawled -- or even the truly gifted without an ounce of gumption.
