Just discovered this band this morning, and I have been playing them a lot on youtube and spotify. Terrific Dale Bozzio-esque new wave. :-)

This one kind of sneaks up on you, doesn't it? There's some lovely guitar in the second half of the tune.

This interview is really awful on his side. Annie's terrific, though. Lots of personality and a great attitude. She doesn't look at all annoyed by his idiotic questions.


Also, didn't know she was from my home "town" (Dallas/Ft Worth). That's pretty cool.

She's going to be in Denver at the end of the summer, but tickets are quite pricey. I think I may take the plunge anyway. She's "my" new discovery. :-)

I don't listen to #AmyGrant much these days, though I was a huge fan for many many years. Once in awhile, I think about her. This video popped up on the side of YT this morning, so I had to watch it. Has she ever looked better in a video? (and that's saying something)

This is 1986, which would make it Unguarded era?

23 years ago today (April 23, 2014) the world lost Johnny Thunders. He didn't exactly live a life worth imitating.

But his music stands on its own. RIP Johnny.

Any time I see Bowie from this era, I can't help but think about Tommy Stone.

I am really liking the THEY LIVE clips that someone has added. It's not on the CD, but it really fits with the song.

Probably my favorite song the album, and that's saying something because I am loving the whole album.

LOL at the Elvis record showing up under "the unusual". 

Great video! Very informative and a wonderful time capsule.

Story
Tagline
I am Me, but I am not yet the Me I want to Be.
Introduction
In the past, I have defined myself by the description below. But as I near age 40, I realize that aiming for those things alone has made me 200+ pounds overweight, homebound, and socially inept. So I have started working towards becoming a new Me -- the Me I should have become decades ago. 

My current focus is fitness, nutrition, and personal growth. I still like the 'geeky' stuff, but I am working on finding perspective. :-D

When I get down to 350, I plan to start Grappling again. There're a lot of great BJJ schools in Denver. I am currently working out at Title Boxing Club in Thornton, CO.

_____________________

The music nerds in "High Fidelity" say that we are defined by what we like. Is it true? If so, then I am:

  • Comics.
  • Books.
  • History.
  • Doctor Who.
  • Star Trek.
  • Classic Film.
  • TV.
  • Self-improvement.
  • Hair Bands.
  • Rasslin.
  • Politics.

Good times. I am basically a supergeek with delusions of being cool. I like a little bit of everything. I'll listen to Lady Gaga and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Or Kellie Pickler and Kristin Chenoweth. I love sappy romantic comedies as well as mindless explosions. Lately, I am obsessed with stand-up comedy.
Bragging rights
Yesterday, I did more barbell squats than the workout before. Tomorrow, I will do even more.
