Read Great Writers

I recently found The Other McCain.

Sharp writing and funny! I wish I had time to investigate more of his writings, but man, is he dead on. His blog gave me the inspiration to see if I could, in one post, get banned from Little Green Footballs. Boy was that an easy goal to achieve! All I asked was if additional information which refuted an initial post by The Lizard King would be published. Shazam! I was banned in an hour!

I make a point to discover other blogs from RS's site. Learning the rules of MY first million hits! I will have to come up with my own version of Rule 5 Sunday. though. NTTATWWT.

How to Fit it All In?

Does anyone lead a balanced life anymore?
Between work, husband, son, stuff around the house, trying to improve my technical skill level (I work in IT), I'm trying to figure out how to be healthy. Is it possible to find the time to work out on a regular basis, pay attention to a good diet and get more then four hours sleep a nite?
Seriously-how do people do it?

Exaggerated sense of self-importance?

Oh Lord, glad to see the Democrat freshman congressman sees himself as a servant of the people. Now he's comparing himself to Bob Dylan. What a blowhard

Hello World

Hey, it's me again. There's been a lot on my mind lately, prompting me to try to return to blogging, but let's start with something fun. Rock and Roll!

Most commercial music is really horrible. If you'd like to hear great music that will remind you of rock in its Golden Age, check out Dan Auerbach . Half of the Black Keys, his solo work will remind you of muscular and soulful music of the 60's and 70's. When he's loud he's intense, which just makes the quieter tunes that much more meaningful and touching. I found him because he just produced some music for one of my favorite groups, Cadillac Sky. You won't find more talented musicians that are harder to categorize anywhere. Think of acoustic Metallica. Really.

Who are you listening to?
