Had a good day today. Went biking with my trainer this afternoon. Shared a nice meal with my former partner this evening before hitting my favorite watering hole and beating a score that’s been bugging me for a long while on the megatouch machine (yeah, lame like that, lol). Then met an interesting couple who engaged me in a lively political discussion. The female of the couple was especially nice and I look forward to chatting with her again in the future. From Croatia and unable to vote in our country thus far, but very knowledgeable and up on what’s going on. Stayed out a little late talking with her and am now home with my own cheap brews (Busch Lights) and internet and smokie. No problems here today.
Other than dining at a fast-food restaurant earlier before my bicycling appointment. Ugh. Gonna learn one of these days… Rare as these diversions have become. Had healthier snacks stocked at home and KNEW IT. Also knew my former companion was cooking us dinner tonight, which turned out to be a yummy meatloaf (his is the only one I’ve ever liked), potato casserole, and steamed broccoli.
Biked my ass off today though. Really pushed it. Partly because my bicycle got set in a funky gear and refused to cooperate otherwise. But fuck it. I probably needed that. Heh My trainer’s a good one and I appreciate the few bike rides we do decide to take. Probably only biked about 3 times this year thus far. Loathe the heat. Blessed Fall. Fall and spring are my favorite seasons.
Another thing I’ve been appreciating are the cruising tunes I most recently burnt to a CD to play in my car. Don’t have a fancy, newfangled automobile with wifi-capability or Sirius radio. Hitting the town in a 2003 Ford these days. And so be it. That’s fine. Relatively easy and cheaper to work on, comparably to my last 2004 Hyundai or my previous 2002 Dodge Ram. We’ll take what we can get at this point.
So let’s play some of those tunes here tonight.
That was “Woke Up This Morning” by Alabama 3.
“Wash My Hands” by Cedric Burnside Project:
That’s not the exact version I have downloaded. But a very talented young man, most definitely. The grandson of the great R.L. Burnside.
Speaking of which, R.L. Burnside’s “Goin’ Down South”:
Yeah, it is bad, ya know?
I’m going with you, babe, I’m going with you baby
I don’t care where you go
Switching gears, another tune playing is “Country Ghetto” by JJ Grey and Mofro:
Switching gears again, Marilyn Manson’s “Personal Jesus”:
Love both that and the Depeche Mode versions.
“2 + 2 = 5” by Radiohead:
That was a cool live version.
This video might not be the best but I do adore listening to this song, “Satisfy” by MOONZz:
