This is my personal week in review, shared out for anyone and everyone.
The Big Takeaway from this Past Week
Blogging regularly is hard. Doing so six days a week is ridiculous. Especially when you can’t seem to say what you want to say in less than 1200 words.
Nugget of Wisdom I Shared with My Kids This Week
Wrestling was wonderful when I was a kid. (Yes, so was cocaine back then. I get it now.)
What I Read This Past Week That is Actually Worth Sharing
This article states something I wanted to get across in my weight loss post. The reason I don’t want to mess with insane workouts or diets is they’re not sustainable. They’re something endured for a few months to get a result, then you’re done. Instead, add incremental changes and adjust your lifestyle. You’ll get the results you want, in time, and have a better chance of keeping them.
What I’m Grateful for This Week
- Thunder basketball reverting back to 2012 style
- Making a dark, dirty craft beer on National Homebrew Day
- The Waze app, which regularly shaves a few minutes (and stress) off my commutes
- Lori’s ridiculous work ethic
- Nathan’s willingness to do his core strength exercises
- Anna’s emotions, most of the time
Listen to This
I haven’t heard the new Radiohead yet. So check out Sturgill’s new album, which features a bunch of horns and strings.
After Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Sturgill was primed for mainstream stardom if he wanted it. He could put together a new genre of bro country songs, with psychotropics substituting for Bud Light. Instead, he went further away from radio.
It reminds me a lot of Faith No More’s Angel Dust, one of my all-time favorite albums. They had a huge hit with Epic, and could’ve been the next Aerosmith or Bon Jovi. Instead, they created an album that was dark and weird and awesome.
