Welcome to the Website for John Parlett.
Here's a few of the projects I am currently involved in....
If you want to check out some of my work, go to Media127.com and check out the site and my portfolio:
If you need a website or know someone, send them to me and I'll be sure to take care of them.
Some of the bands I regulary listen to:
BB King, Eric Clapton, Phil Keaggy, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin, Beastie Boys, Billy Holiday, Cheap Trick, Chicago (really like their older stuff), CCR, Damn Yankees, Dave Matthews Band, Days of the New, Diana Krall, Doobie Brothers, Doors, Dream Theater, Eric Johnson, Extreme, Foo Fighters, Frank Sinatra, .....and the list goes on. Sorry, just realized that I kind of like all music and this list would be extremely long. I'm not sure you care enough to read through it anyway.
3 Things I Believe.....
(1) I believe that anger is rarely needed in a conversation. Those that wield anger like a weapon only hurt themselves in the long run. Most conversations are won by those that keep a cool head and act professional no matter what is going on. You might lose a few battles, but you will usually win the war. (Of course, I don't really fight, so that comment doesn't apply well to me).
(2) Music is the heartbeat of life. When I've been down, my music let's me vent what I am feeling. When I'm happy, nothing is better than a great song played at maximum volume in the car while driving at highway speeds (on the highway of course). Do yourself a favor sometime. Take a loved one out on a night drive. Open all the windows and play a CD or MP3s that you really like at a higher volume than you normally would. Have a great time and just sing with the music. It will remove you from any problem you have for that period of time.
(3) Family and Friends are everything. You don't know what you have until it's gone. Take a moment and think what life would be like without that certain someone. I don't mean like gone for a vacation or far enough away that you might see them one day. I'm talking about gone...gone. Never to hear their voice again or see their smiling face. Some of us have lost someone close and knows what I'm talking about. Now....take a minute and hug that someone or call them on the phone and wish them a nice day. Tell them how glad you are that they are your family and/or friend.
Live life in the "left field" sometimes. Do something unpredictable. You don't always have to wait till someone's birthday or Christmas to get them a present. Give a little extra the next time your at a Waffle House. The $4 extra ;you give the waiter/waitress might not be a big deal to you, but it will make a difference in their day. Send me an email and tell me you want to hangout. I'm always open for that. Let's cook something and play some music. Let's be friends.
That about wraps it up for me. Just a little information so we have something to talk about when we get together. Now go make a list about yourself and I'll help you put a website up for yourself.
