Smack-talkers are real characters. There are two kinds: the one’s that can back it up and the one’s that can’t. I used to play a lot of basketball and that is one game the smack talkers are usually the good players. I was probably inspired by a recent interview I read with Ron Artest where he was relating some of the awful things Paul Pierce was saying to him during the playoffs. I’m usually not a smack talker but occasionally I’ll become a bit over exuberant in my competitive exultation.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
