The Good Life

My workout last night kind of wiped me out. I have today off of work. I have been pretty lazy so far today. I played with the doggies. Casey is in Chicago. I got some coffee and a bagel at STL Bread Company. I learned to surf. I got my Masshysteri 7" and CD in the mail yesterday. I took a shower. I am very sweaty for no reason.

One of the above statements is false. Can you guess which one?

Today is about to be great. At least the potential is there. Ashley and I are going to eat at Pappy's BBQ and then going to see the Cardinals battle the Mets. Ida is even nice enough to drive us to the game. As long as I don't get food poisoning and it does not rain all day I will be happy.

Big Sized Video

Finally a big sized Breeders video:

http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=55950644

You can see me at 1:03 ( sitting next to empty chair on right nana and mike (very tall) on left).

You can see me jumping at about 1:27-1:28.

You can see me shouting and pointing at 1:46.

You can see me sitting clapping at 2:05.

That is about it. Cool.

Casey is really in it a lot. Awesome.

Kirksville



I was walking the doggies down my street this morning and I saw 2 different refrigerators in front of 2 different houses. It was then that it dawned on me how much my street reminds me of Kirksville. This makes me happy in a lot of ways, but is probably not good for my future property value. But who cares about that shit anyway right. But seriously my street is working class (besides me who is uber riche) and there are a lot of different styles of houses. Some houses are in great shape and others not so much. There is a neighborhood bar at the end of the street with good food and cheap beer. Good times.

I had my mind set on doing a lot of yard/outside work today, but the rain is starting so I might have to give up on that. Not too disappointed.

I just ordered a Masshysteri CD and 7". They were the Swedish band I saw a few weeks back. They have really stuck in my head. I have one song that was a free download on the Riverfront times website that I have listened to about 5 times today already. Here is a link to the interview/free download. I want everyone to listen to it at least 5 times today :

I really should re-size it, but Jen (the owner of the mostly defunct Iced Coco blog) found me in the Breeders video. See above. thanks Jen!!! I am really excited about this video, but I am about the only one. I guess music videos don't have much of a purpose anymore.

I am embarrassed to say that the P90x Legs and Back workout put me out of commission for a few days. My calf muscle was so sore I thought I would die and Casey thought she would die because of my whining. I'm ready to resume working out today with the Kenpo X workout. Yeee Haw!

The Breeders Video is Here

The Breeders video that was shot here in Stl on Valentine's day is finally out. I think that you could see me if you pause it and grad a magnifying glass, but oh well. I had my moments of fame in the 2 "making of" videos. The song is good and my special lady friend is in the video at least 3 times: Once coming out of a stall (I'm going to assume she was taking a dump), once knocking over the camera man with her chest, and once kissing Grave Danger on the cheek. Good stuff. Here it is: http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/04/14/exclusive-premiere-the-breeders-fate-to-fatal-video-and-song/

Last night was a terrible night for the Cardinals so I'm glad this video came out this morning.

I was a lazy bum last night, so here's to me waking the fuck up today.

M80s

I think that people who comment on news stories on the internet are terrible.

Had some delish Peruvian food on Friday for Annas Bidet on Friday. Blues got into the playoffs which is a cool thing. Helped my Pappy build a fence. It was pretty fun. We dug holes and mixed and poured concrete. I got a sunburn. Went to the Roller Derby where Casey kicked some asses and they won. Sunday hung with the fam. Good times.

Is it bad that I have been drinking out of the same styrofoam cup at work for like 8 months?

While driving to work I was thinking about how happy I am that I don't have to wear diapers.....yet.

Adventures in Facial Hair and P90X


The first picture is one I am not proud of, but it is funny nonetheless. I look like a fat man with a sweet sweet stache. Again I think it is just a bad angle and me not being used to seeing my bare face yet. Today I look great. Trust me. Speaking of how I look the 2nd picture is me right after shaving my moustache off but keeping the sideburns. Ok I wish that was me, but it is really Atilla from Lionheart. I actually have a black tank top and I want to re-create this picture. We'll see if I can get it set up.
So Columbia was pretty fun even though it was a very brief trip. Casey's team won and everyone played well. Ben and I got some tasty burgers at Flat Branch prior to the bout. I did get pissed off at Saint Louis because I saw at least a few basketball hoops in parks in Columbia which is more that I can say for the STL. Come on. Let's get it going. I shouldn't have to join the Y or build my own basketball court just to shoot some hoops. Anyway...... A lot of the roller girls who were not playing in the bout were super hammered and it was fun to watch. I'm sure the ones playing also got super hammered, but Ben and I drove home soon after the bout.
I was hoping to make it back in time to go to the Megan & Kelly birthday partay, but alas it was not meant to be. Happy Birthday ladies!
After seeing my fat moustache picture I decided to start my P90X workout program. It is pretty hardcore. I have done 3 days worth of workouts and watched what I ate and my body hurts. It is a good hurt though. I should be totally ripped in just 87 more days. I have a pretty sweet set up in my garage.
There are a lot of birthday's this week. Anne, Ben, Megan and Kelly. Wowsers.

As Promised




Moustache

I have a moustache today. I will try to remember to take a picture 2nite. It is pretty hilarious. I laugh every time I look at myself. As more of my face is exposed on a daily basis I am reminded that my face is not very good to look at. Maybe I should start growing more things on it to cover it up.

I am about 1/3 of the way through Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. It is pretty good and brutal. I know that I could die at any time, but reading this book reminds me how easy I have it. Maybe that is why I like reading/watching dark depressing stuffs so much.

The Dallas trip was fine. We didn't do a whole heck of a lot, but that was pretty relaxing.

Went to a great show at the Wedge on Tuesday. I know can you believe I actually went and did something during the week. 4 bands that were all pretty good. I don't know if the sound guy was great or the room was perfect, but all of the bands sounded amazing. Glass Teeth always puts on a great show and I hadn't seen them in a while so that was nice. I was really impressed with Masshysteri. They are a Swedish band that sings in Swedish. How bout that. I kind of preferred it. I like to think of the voice as another instrument unless the lyrics are really good. This allowed me to just get into the melody and not worry about the lyrics. They were really excited to be in St. Louis because they liked Chuck Berry. They played Johnny B. Goode.

Ahhhh yes.

I am going to Columbia tomorrow to watch some roller derby. I need some companions. Who's in?
