heavy metal bake sale!
Friends of mine in the band Imminent Sonic Destruction are getting ready to record an album, and instead of making a kickstarter (or indiegogo or pledgemusic or whatever) page, they were more creative, and put together a heavy metal bake sale, i... Read more
Got glimpse of my future tonight, and I didn't like it
So last Friday was the second game of the ultimate frisbee season, and for the most part, it went better than the first. I played multiple points in a row, not getting winded just be stepping out on the field. I actually scored a point! The guy ... Read more
you'd think motivation would be high at the start of the year...
....but in my case, you'd be wrong. Lump on a log is more of the attitude these days. Especially annoying/confounding with the start of the blc round just a couple of days ago. You'd really think, having chosen to dip my toe back in that pool, I... Read more
Last chance to evacuate planet earth before it is recycled
The ultimate frisbee was every bit as bad as I'd feared. Apparently, the competition includes members of the University of Michigan ultimate team (MagnUM), as well as a bunch of local club players, and, well, I guess I'm just going to have to de... Read more
oh boy this is gonna be bad
The fact that I had a job the last couple of summers that had me travelling means that these past two summers really haven't been summers. I haven't been able to play softball or ultimate frisbee or soccer, the kind of thing that makes summer su... Read more
Sometimes, you can go home again. I skipped a round of the BLC challenge thingy on spark, just for not knowing whether I was really getting the motivation I needed out of it. Honestly, I'm still not sure, but I certainly missed the teammates and... Read more
I am the enemy. I am the antidote.
Hey, look, we all know we're the reason we're here at spark. And we're all aware that it's up to us to make the changes necessary to attain 'good' health (whatever that means for you!)
I'm not sure that's exactly what Arch Enemy were going ... Read more
I am a man of minor miracles
Last trick of the old year or first of the new, I'm not sure, but I managed to lose weight over the holiday season. Maybe coughing and sneezing for three days counts as exercise, after all?
Couple more tidbits from the trip down to TN:
1)... Read more
Once more down Thunder Road
Spent New Year's down Tennessee way for the second year in a row, and perhaps the last, as the friends who hosted are planning to move back to the midwest. It was a fun 5 days, filled with friends, games, and phlegm, as I and a number of others ... Read more
where i whine about musicians I like getting rich and famous
No, it's not quite what you think, it's not a case of "us troo fan used to have something special but then those bastards sold out".
More like a case of "us fans knew about them before they got big, and all the new fans don't appreciate whe... Read more
fra gee lay....I must be Italian
Haven't managed to see a Christmas story yet this season, but I do keep managing to hurt myself. Well, in this latest insurance, hurt might not be the best word. Got a knee that's slightly swollen, a definite tightness to the joint with some los... Read more
crossed the 200 pound barrier in the wrong direction
but I'm not too broken up about it. I've been skating on the edge of it a while. To be honest, I'm rather morbidly amused that it happened in a week where I've made it to the gym a couple of times, as opposed to the previous few weeks where I di... Read more
Friday was an utter failure
As far as getting those goals met, anyway. Might have gotten the 30 minutes of making noise thing, was messing with the keyboard and guitar for a while. Exercise didn't happen, as I planned to go after dinner and feel asleep instead. Didn't mana... Read more
the big chinese guy beat up on me and i like it. or i think I'll like it in a day or two?
Had a groupon for a Chinese acupressure massage (fully clothed, neck, shoulders and back focus), so I finally went and used that last week. It was a 2 session deal, so I went back Thursday for round two. This isn't the "you feel very relaxed whe... Read more
Clearly, picture angst isn't sufficient to get my butt in gear
Have strongly considered, and utterly failed to get to the gym both these past two days. Tomorrow, maybe. The lazy is strong in this one, this week. Or the last three weeks anyway. To be fair, I have been dealing with a bad wheel, but still, tha... Read more
