Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“A sample of music done on Thursday night at Treasures”)

We have the same type of fun on Thursday nights as we do on Wednesday nights. The difference is that we just started doing Thursday night at Treasures (5549 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA from 7:00 to 11:00). This is only one song but it can give you an idea of what we go through. This song was requested, so we decided to do it. Mickie Lynn on lead vocals. Of course, I am playing the red bass guitar wearing the orange shirt. I hope you like. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.


Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“Allegations of rape for Nelly?”)

The interesting part of this story is not whether or not rapper Nelly actually committed rape. It is whether or not he put himself into a “position” where someone could falsely accuse him of the crime. You see, if you have “any” degree of fame or notoriety, you should “never” be in a situation where you are even “alone” with someone you are not familiar with. Some people will take advantage of that moment and level charges against you in hopes of getting money. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the case here is the link:

Personally, I don’t believe that Nelly would have been stupid enough to put himself in this situation. If that means that I think he is innocent then so be it. If the authorities there allowed him to leave then it should be obvious that they believe he is innocent as well (otherwise they would have kept him). With fame comes responsibility. If you can’t imagine people coming for your money then you are in the wrong business. The damage to his career increased mightily after this woman made the charges against him. Even if he is found innocent nothing will totally get rid of that. I do understand that when you are a young male with some money and fame you are easily tempted with all those things that people wish to offer. However, if you value your career, then you should never allow yourself to be in “any” condition where your behavior can be scrutinized. If you don’t know the person, stay away… Nelly has had run ins with the law before. If he has not learned anything then maybe he does need to spend some time in jail. Let’s hope that for his sake he is able to prove that these allegations against him are “false.” Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.

Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“Words from the late Michael Jackson”)

I thought this was extremely interesting. You may have a different view but neither of us was in the position Michael Jackson was in. This video seems so prophetic right now. Check out what he has to say. Keep in mind that these are “his” words, not mine… but if this doesn’t open your eyes about the industry, then nothing will… Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.

Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“the concept of being nice to people”)

I realize that this is probably a bother to most people, but I honestly believe in the concept of being “nice” to people. Yes, some people have extensive attitudes and in some cases may not even deserve a kind thought (but I want to be nice to them as well). The issue here is one that for me holds no secret to it. You first have to realize that people are who and what they are. Just like people have psychological traits of all their ancestors they also have physical traits as well. In other words, no one is so pure that they cannot have something wrong inside. That is why no one can ever be perfect, because we have the DNA of ancestors within us who were not perfect at all. We just don’t realize that some times the moods of our ancestors will show within us. That being said, it is helpful to be kind to everyone. You may think that this is being done for them. That thought would be wrong. “I do it for me.” You see, no matter what I do I cannot change people from what they are. It is best to accept them “as is.” However, if I can change myself to be more accepting of people then that will make a big difference for me. If I have any small change I like to give it to people who need (and ask for) money. I could wait until I become extremely rich but that day may never come, so I will give what I can now. Since I had my stroke I realize that I can’t be receptive to a lot of stress, so whenever someone tries to send me negative vibes I simply walk away. Part of a harmonious existence comes from staying away from all those things that bring you down. Being nice has helped me feel much better and happier. Life is awesome to me now. While I know deep inside that this feeling cannot last forever (there are things in life that will automatically make me sad again) I still feel much better now without accenting the negative. I could probably explain more but the simple answer would be to live life for yourself this way and see what happens. I have been blessed beyond all means, because I had a stroke and I made it back to just about 100 percent of my abilities. That doesn’t usually happen to a lot of people. I have a second chance and I hope to make the most of it. Being nice to people is just the start. I expect that you will do whatever works best for you, and I will not try to change you at all. However, being nice and feeling nice suits me very well right now, and I am happy to be where I am. You may not understand, but then again this is really about “me” right now. It works. One day if you are up to trying it may work for you as well. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.

Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“Another sample song from last night”)

Stash is a good singer, even when he is drunk. Yes, he was a little toasted last night, but he still represented in a special way. We have so much fun on Wednesday nights, and this is only one particular segment of it. In order to see all the people in attendance you just needed to be there. I host the event, and I am wearing the red shirt (and actually playing bass synth on this song). It was a beautiful evening and I just wanted to share a piece of it with you. If you are ever in the Darby/Philadelphia area on a Wednesday night you need to come out to see us at the Crab Tavern (201 North MacDade Blvd in Darby, PA). It is live music that always seems special. I hope you enjoy this video. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.

Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought “The Power of the NRA”)

The recent shooting in Las Vegas was bad… very bad… The man who committed the shooting had never really been in trouble with the law before. In fact, Stephen Paddock was 64 years of age, and obviously someone (or something) sent him over the edge. As people go through life, changes happen, and some of those changes are not pleasant ones. Those changes we may not be able to see in time, but the problem here was not the changes he went through. The real problem was the ease at which he was able to accumulate his “large” arsenal of weaponry. The NRA (National Rifle Association) is now trying to make it easier for people to purchase silencers for their guns. Out of the 22 thousand people in attendance for that show, can you imagine how many more would have died if the shooter had actually had silencers? The NRA is a large and powerful industry. They have survived many past shootings, and even though there have been countless attempts for stronger background checks the NRA continues to deliver weapons to the wrong hands. Most of them will simply say that stronger background checks won’t make a difference, because people will only lie about what their plans are with the guns. That may very well be true for those with sane intentions, but have you ever talked to a person who is certifiably crazy before? Timothy McVeigh was a terrorist who believed that the government was wrong when it came to the way they handled a situation in Texas. He talked about the government to everyone who would listen and once you heard him you could automatically “tell” that something was wrong. He was one of those people that should not have been able to acquire a gun. The same could be said for just about anyone with those same type of intentions. For those people who want to kill innocents, their message is important. Those are the people that the NRA needs to hold responsible. We can continue to deny that the NRA has any involvement in this situation (but I can tell you that the shooters are getting guns from “somebody”). The NRA has a lot of money and a lot of power. Someone looking for votes from this organization cannot possibly expect to win after confronting them. As long as this organization can sell to everyone we will continue to have more shootings just like this one. The BEST way to start is to toughen the background checks on people. Of course, this has been said before… “many” times… but until we actually get the message in our heads the NRA will eventually have us all “killing each other.” Let’s see if they find out exactly where this gunmen got his “many” guns and then let me know if you think the NRA has anything to do with it.

Brett Jolly’s Daily Thought (“Did you know that OJ Simpson was set free?”)

In case you missed it, the legendary OJ Simpson was released from jail after 9 years. They snuck him out at night so that no one would be around to see it. He has promised to lay low and stay out of the spotlight. Some people think that he got away with murder. They might be right, but if so he isn’t the only one… He was in jail for armed robbery (he tried to reclaim his own merchandise) and he did 9 years of a 33 year jail sentence in a Las Vegas prison. OJ was one of those athletes who went from the very top to the very bottom. If he had only kept a low profile after his murder trial he probably would not have been in a Vegas prison. However, OJ’s biggest problem was that he was not very smart. His arrogance made him think that he didn’t have a bulls eye target on his back. He did, and when he went to pick up his belongings he gave the people exactly what they were looking for…. another chance to lock him up. There are people out there who just need to stay out of the spotlight. George Zimmerman is one of them. If he doesn’t keep his mouth closed and lay low they will find a way to put him in prison too. OJ may never get back the positive image he had, but at this point in his life he doesn’t need to. He has money, he has family and he has a reason to keep out of public view. If he wants to stay out of prison then hopefully this time he will do the “smart thing.” Right now it doesn’t matter whether he was found innocent or guilty. He is still one of the most hated men in the United States. Time will tell that story. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
