Facebook – 10 Albums in 10 Days Cover Art Challenge

Greetings to everyone! Happy Mid-May 2020!

Some of you may have been involved with or seen this challenge unfold on Facebook. One person challenges 10 ‘friends’ – one per day with a picture attached of an album/CD/cassette that was influential during their musical formative years. I was challenged and began to comply but ultimately messed up by forgetting to post two of the days but I have rectified the situation and hopefully we should now be good. I have attached below the albums I chose – not really in any particular order and not really 100% comprehensive. After all, how can you capture the essence of all that musical wow in just 10 single albums?

For your consideration, I give you my 10 selections as presented on Facebook. Enjoy.

Have a great weekend and into the week! Cheers!

Peace. <<05-17-2020>>

May the Fifth Be With You

Hello and Happy Cinco de Tuesday! For all the Star Wars people with hangovers from yesterday, I shall try not to shout in ALL CAPS. Sorry, just had to show a for example moment instance.

Desktop Picture Purge – April 2020

Every so often I need to clean up my laptop desktop area. In doing so I tend to notice quite a bit has accumulated there. For your review and judgement, I present the most recent weeks worth of clutter. Enjoy. Stay safe out there.

Peace. <<04-22-2020>>

Cabin in the Woods Challenge for $$$

Good afternoon! Welcome to my blog. For reasons unknown, my brain woke me up in the middle of the night last night. After bouncing around some other trivial topics, it locked onto this meme I have seen on Facebook about a dozen times. The meme shows a nice-looking log cabin surrounded by trees or adjacent to a lake surrounded by trees with the caption:

Could you stay here for one month with no phone or internet for $100,000?

It’s been one week…

That old song by Barenaked Ladies from their Stunt album released in 1998 is running through my head today as I note the one week mark since I was laid off from my job. In some ways the week went very fast and in others…it was painfully slow.

Things I’ve accomplished over the last seven days whilst being confined (mostly) to the home quarters:

  • Showered and put on deodorant daily
  • Vacuumed (once – still counts!)
  • Washed dishes (more than once!)
  • Put on a dress shirt (twice) for video job interviews
  • Sketched and painted a picture for the first time in five years
  • Posted on my blog
  • Ate a healthy breakfast each day (not necessarily in the morning time)

One thing I have learned from my time off is that I need to go back to work soon. Why? Because if I go too much longer here unsupervised, I will gain a significant amount of weight which will require that I purchase new work clothes. Additionally, I am finding waaaaay too many things that I ‘need‘ on Amazon.com and ebay.com in varying genres.

Hopefully everyone is using this time to catch up on the Chuck & Dave Podcast hosted on Soundcloud under The Freak Show Podcast site.

Everyone stay safe, sane and sanitary out there!

Peace. <<04-10-2020>>

Covid-19 Timestop

So over the years of doing my blog, I have sometimes chirped in on trending topics or important occurrences. With the Election Year ‘lockdown’ of 2020 for the Corona virus, how could I not at least put down a bread crumb marker for later? Hopefully the events and tragedies surrounding this version of the virus (Covid-19) are a one-time, once in a lifetime happening. Obviously for those who lost their lives to the virus, it will be but for the rest of us let’s hope to never see this kind of sadness and selfishness again.

Going Viral Down A Spiral

This is how the mighty human dynasty ends…behind a fortress of toilet paper rolls. Our defenses weakly fortified with catapults loaded with sanitized goo? Social media is causing the masses to yip and bolt like my cat Sadie when the house creaks unexpectedly. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Day 365 – 2019 Edition

Hello! Thank you for dropping in on my tiny slice of cyber-where. This will be my final blog post…this year. I’ve included some rando pictures of silly stuffs. I anticipate much will change in 2020…and some things will not. What will those changes look like, it’s hard to say at the moment. But like most things in life, you can jump into the surf and wade out to meet them or just wait on the shore to see if the repercussions will be impactful.

NYEEE (New Year’s Eve Eve Eve)

Welcome to December 29th! It’s a Sunday with no special circumstances to alleviate the work day forthcoming tomorrow (the dreaded Monday). It’s not New Year’s Eve Eve Eve’s fault. So remember Sunday is still a good thing until about 7-8pm when the mind turns towards the impending tomorrow. Please enjoy the time we have left until Monday poisons the last tidbit of our weekend.

Halloween Costume 2019

What are you wearing?

Hmm. That came across a bit more creepy than I intended. I just meant, are you wearing a costume for the holiday? I did! See below!

And for giggles, here are some other Halloween costumes over the years. Try to guess the age and who I am just for fun!

Feel free to message me for feedback or if you think of a topic I should tackle!

Cheers! Peace.

Pre-Halloween 2019 Image Jumble!

Hello all!

Every so often I like to grab a snapshot of the random images that have accumulated on my computer desktop and post them on here. The purpose is two-fold:

One, I get to use the collage feature. And two, by posting these random and unrelated picture, I want to try to make my readers venture a guess as to why I was looking at/downloading each photo. So with that put out into our universe…let’s go!

Everyone have a spooky and ghoulish good week! Blah Blah Blah! (said in the voice of an old-time Count Dracula!)

Peace.

F*R*I*E*N*D*S: The One With The Job

Hello!

For those of you who read my blog from time to time, you may recall I applied once to become a contributor to Cards Against Humanity. Alas I was not selected to join their twisted ranks. But undaunted I once again hop into the fray! This time I have applied to become a paid FRIENDS binge watcher! I already watch the show during the week at work and at home for free so why not try to make a little $$$ in the process? BING! Below is the link to the job application and under that is my response to the mandatory essay question they asked. Hope you find it intriguing or maybe at least logical. Enjoy.

Adulting with softball crossover (HIPPA release included)

Today marks 32 days since I had my ill-timed heart attack in Sherwood, Arkansas (is there really a good time to have a heart attack?). Furthermore, it has been thirty days from my hospital release date. In many ways it seems like a long time since then and in the same vein it feels like only yesterday. Sometimes, depending on how a fall asleep, I wake up and feel like the IV’s are still in the crook of each arm but then I move and the sensation dissipates. Starting with the moment I was lifted up into that ambulance, then continuing through coming back home and meeting with the local doctors (cardiologists, thyroid doctors, etc.), I have intently listened to what they have told me I need to do. In the context of their medical recommendations and strategies to put me on the path to returning to normalcy, I have also been doing some figurative cosmic math.
