It's been a good week. I got a couple short rides in, which is probably what I'm supposed to be doing (as opposed to long basebuilding grinds). My six year old kid informed me tonight that babies have gills, because otherwise, they couldn't breathe when they're in mommy's belly. I got a screaming headache fixed courtesy of an emergency root canal this morning, which wasn't fun but did bring relief. A cousin who is close to me, and unfortunately also close with uterine cancer, had an operation and the doc pegs her chances at beating it entirely in the 85-90% range. And like usual, tomorrow presents me with a brand new chance to try to make right what I didn't get right today. What's not to love about that? As I said, it's been a good week.
I will try to get in some longer rides this weekend if the weather is okay. I'm going to get my diet straightened back up, which is now possible because I'm working out regularly again. (Dieting when not working out is damn near impossible for me. Which makes it like dieting most other times...).
It's Friday though, and you're only here for the music. So, as Ray Davies, noted in song, it's time to give the people what they want.
Check out Them Crooked Vultures. Pretty good jam band with some established artists. Who's the old guy? A fellow by the name of John Paul Jones. You may have heard of his earlier band. He's got a pretty solid musical resume. Dave Grohl is no slouch either.
While we're not on the subject... I'm likin' on the Black Keys these days. Nice guitar work, good blues/rock vibe.
Now for something totally different... Hollywood Undead, with an NSFW ditty they call "Everywhere I Go." Juvenile, funny, not very artistic... beasically 2 Live Crew, staffed by a bunch of lowbrow white dudes. I found it amusing though.
Might as well finish with something completely different from that.
Have a good weekend. I hope it's clear for a while and you can get some rides in, despite the approach of this grinder of a rainstorm.
