Joining the Fad

I am joining  up with the kids.  I got my own stash of silly bandz.  I couldn't resist grabbing these fun bandz back in September at the Wing Fest in Buffalo.  They were specially made for the festival, obviously.  That is, counter-clockwise, a buffalo (really it is a bison), BFLO, a celery stick, and a chicken wing (the flat 2 bone kind), I forgot to pose the drumstick wing for the pic and didn't realize until I uploaded it.  These aren't the real official Silly Bandz owned right here in T-Town Ohio, but they are fun and a piece of my home.  I don't know what I am going to do with them, I'm not going to be wearing them around on my wrist.   I just have them for fun.  I also got some Buffalo Bills logo bands while I was there.  I am a sucker for some things, and I am kind of lame, but I like to be fun.

I am a bad Boy Scout today

I did all the Cub Scouting and Boy Scouting growing up.  When you get to a certain age in they introduce pocket knifes to you. They teach you a whole bunch of rules to follow that help keep you safe from injury.  In Boy Scouts they give  you the Totin' Chip Card after you learn it all.  Well I broke one of the rules today.  I cut toward myself.  You aren't supposed to do that in case the knife slips and you cut yourself.  Well I cut toward myself and slipped and cut myself.  I guess I will get my Totin' Chip taken from me now.  It wasn't a bad cut, but that doesn't matter, it was still a cut that was caused by not following the rules.  I guess I won't be able to carry my trusty Swiss Army knife now.  I will be lost with out it.  It is my fault though.

We are addicts!

That is the coffee at my office.  There are five of us that drink the coffee.  We might have a problem.
Let me tell you our stock at the moment, from left to right.  1.) Starbucks Espresso Roast 2.) Starbucks Cinnamon 3.) Jack Daniels Tennessee Mountain Blend 4.)  Bulk coffee from the Anderson's - Northwest Dark Roast 5.)  Community Coffee Dark Roast 6.) Meijer Gold Dark Roast (in the canister) 7.) Hazelnut Flavored (in ziploc), that one was brought in to cover a flavor of one we didn't like that much before we had the stock we have now.

Needless to say we like to drink the coffee in my office.

Well I have lost a total of fifty pounds.  Over a year ago I was at 286 lbs and decided I should lose some of it.  I start working out and being more active.  Then in July of this year my friends and wife decided that we should have a "Biggest Loser" competition starting in August, not anything officially tied to the TV show just amongst ourselves.  I decided  it was time to buckle down and go for it.  I wanted to be serious so I cut out a ton of sugar, cut portions down to  probably what should be normal, stopped late night eating.  I also kicked up my working out.  It has been working I have steadily been losing the weight.  That is the way they want you to do it, slow and steady.  I know it has been working.  This weekend I went to Gram's to visit the family and they all noticed it. My Gram even said I shouldn't loose anymore.  That is ridiculous, I am continuing on my course.  I recently started doing the P90X workouts, although I am sticking with my diet.  The workouts have me working and hour plus a day and they are tough, I think the Yoga X had me sweating the most and the Plyometrics X had me the sorest so far.  I didn't do all of them yet because of the holiday weekend but I will.  Something that helped me stay on course was keeping track of my weight weekly on a spread sheet for the last 4 months.

One week I gained and I didn't like it, so back on track I was.  The official competition is over after Christmas, we will see where I end up then.

I am the yeti

My wife was doing some shopping and she came across this cute little fellow.
It is a Nepalese Yeti Christmas Ornament.  I have been called "Yeti" for a while now by a few of my friends.  I believe it all started when I dressed up as a yeti danced around the bar while my roommates band played a song called yeti.  It was quite fun.  Since then it has been a nickname that i have answered too.  For those of you that don't know, a yeti is like big foot or sasquatch but from the Himalayan Mountains, his white fur is to help him blend in with the snow.  The only resemblance I have to a yeti, or what a yeti is believed to look like since they are folkloric, would be my height.  I don't have super white hair, don't even have much hair.  I guess that is was my fault for excepting the task of dancing in costume at the bar.  I don't mind I have been called worse.

Well anyway I would like to thank my wife for buying him for me.

My Favorite!

I know I am dieting but my wife knows my favoritest candy is the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.  We also both love goofy novelty items, so when she was at the store she had to buy me a pack of these:

You might say, "what makes this a novelty?" Well if you look at the side closely you may notice that it says 2 half pound cups.  That is right one WHOLE pound of Reese's Peanut Cup.  Here is a picture next to my Blackberry:

It is one giant.  Next a picture in the hand.

And me devouring it.

It was delicious!

The McRib

The McRib is currently being sold at McDonald's for a limited time.  It has been on and off this way for quite a few years now.  They tried it out a while back and it didn't do all they great so they dropped it.  Then it was brought back again on a limited basis from time to time.  They even had a few farewell tours for the McRib, and some "Save the McRib" campains with petitions and such (started by McD's as a marketing campaign I believe).  The Simpsons even did an episode mocking it where Homer followed the McRib as it moved from market to market.  It is now some sort of cult classic sandwich.  I was kind of shocked that my wife had never eaten one, I thought everyone had at least tried it once.  I don't think I have had one in five or six years, but I had to try it and see what it is all about.  Well today I am going to subject my wife to one of these strange sandwiches for lunch.  Whether she wants it or not she is taking at least one bite of the McRib.

More Music Now

Recently I have been downloading music off of Amazon.  Everyday they have a daily deal and I have to check it out.  Yesterday was a super sweet deal:

The Black Label Society Berzerkus Tour Sampler It is a two disc set and it was only 69 cents, how could I turn that down.  I didn't really listen to them, but I like Ozzy Osbourne and Zakk Wylde gained his popularity by playing for him before he started Black Label Society.  So for $0.69 I thought I couldn't go wrong, I listened to it last night and was not disappointed.  Really how could you be for that much money, if one song rocks it is a good purchase.  I might have to throw it in a stereo and crank up the volume kick back with a beer on this one.  As of the writing of this post it is still listed for that cheap cheap price so if you are interested click the link and get to downloading.

Now the deals aren't always so sweet, but still good.  I bought one for $3.99 last week, it was a newer release of a singer songwriter guy that I am a fan of, Matt Costa.  I also bought 99 classical music songs for $1.99 a few days ago, they frequently have these 99 essential classical compositions for sweet deals.  Sometimes they have the albums available for download before it is officially released anywhere else.  Also every month they have 100 albums for $5.00.  All in all they have pretty cool deals everyday and I will keep on visiting until my wife takes my account away from me.

I think I have reached a new level of parenthood

I spent an entire day with children cartoon songs going through my head.  In the morning we have been turning on Disney channel on for lil' b and  he loves them now.  If we don't turn them on he points to the remote and makes noises that I am sure are supposed to mean "turn on the cartoons dad!"  At 6:30am on Disney channel (290 on Directv) is Special Agent Oso.  He is a bear that helps kids by splitting up their tasks into three special steps. Paw Pilot is his little guide and she sings the three special steps song.  Well that song goes through my head frequently now.  Here is a sample of the shows super sweet catchy music.

This blog post was accomplished by three special steps, step one: come up with topic, step 2: search youtube for music, step 3: publish!

While searching for music I also found this funny mash up for you SNL fans:

I particularly like the end where Oso holds his hands apart demonstrating the what was worth shouting about.

I love playing with my balls!

BuckyBalls are a totally fun toy that I got a couple of months ago when I was visiting my mom in Buffalo.  Buckyballs are 216 powerful rare earth magnets, you can shape them into all kinds of different shapes and designs. Like this cube:

Or this cone like thingy:

Or this Hexagon:

You can make what ever you feel like, I guess a friend made a dog out of them earlier.  Of course they have a Facebook page, and on there you can submit pictures into contests of things you created.  One person was quoted as saying "This is Silly Putty for the 21st century".  

I got them at one of the sweetest toy stores ever right around the corner from where I grew up.  It has all kinds of neat stuff.  I totally knew they would have these before we got there.  I had seen these Buckyballs somewhere on the internets and thought they were really cool, but they do have a little bit high of a price tag so I didn't order them for myself.  So I see them at this store and started playing with them and they were lots of fun.  One thing that did catch me off guard was the fact that they had a sign on the display that warned that you must be 21 years old to purchase.  This caught me a little off guard so I asked why,  well I guess that you could die if you swallow more than one.  They have a pretty strong attraction to each other and they would tear holes in your intestines, not good.  I have them at work now so the little guy doesn't get into them.  I will probably end up ruining my computer here, I hope that doesn't happen.

If you are looking for an interesting gift for an adult friend these maybe it.

Recently we went to visit my wifes family for an early Thanksgiving dinner.  There were out of towners visiting so they had a big ol' get together.  Well they live out in the country on the farm, and on this farm they have llamas.
Like this guy or gal (I didn't check):
They had over a dozen of them.  They were pretty interested to see who we were, and we were pretty interested right back at 'em.  We were in one cage with four or five of them and we were looking into another cage at these ones.  The ones in the cage we were in mostly stayed away from us, one did walk up to the little guy and he got a little scared and ran to me and wasn't followed.  These ones in the other cage were right up against it checking us out.

There were also some alpacas out there in a different pen but they stayed way in the middle.  Since the rumor is they spit we decided to stay out of firing range.  I guess they have deadly accuracy at about fifteen feet, they will hit you right in the face.  We just looked from afar at them.

The cousin harvests the wool of these llamas/alpacas and knits them in to blankets, hats, scarves, purses, rugs and whatever else she can think of.  I guess there aren't the allergies caused by llama wool that are caused by sheep wool and it is softer.  We learned about the whole process, brushing, shearing, picking, part where she sends it out, spinning, then the knitting.  We saw many of the finished products and they were all very nice.

We even saw some dog hair products.  I guess you just brush fido and you can spin it into yarn just like all the other wool and knit it.  Dog hair is hollow so it is the warmest product you can wear.  I found this very interesting, so very interesting that I want to knit a hat out of my beloved Devo now.

My new weakness

I have been looking for some healthier snacks recently, so I tried granola.  I figured it was better than eating potato chips, or cookies which were in my old snack repertoire.  Trying to cut out sugars and get more natural I headed over to that section in Kroger and found some granolas.  First I tried the Bear Naked brand. There were a couple of those flavors that I thought were good, not the Triple Berry Crunch.  Then I grabbed a back to Nature since it was on sale for less than Bear Naked.  Right away I like the Original flavor a bunch.  Then I went back and Sunflower & Pumpkin Seed caught my eye and I thought I would give it a shot.  Well I might have to not get it again, it was toooooooo good!!!  I can't control myself when I am around it.  I just practically licked the bag right before writing this post, it did help me figure out what to write about today.  I take some and say to myself "that should hold me over," then put the bag away.  Well that bag starts calling out to me from my drawer.  I can't resist it and go for more.  It usually happens a couple of times in a row. Until today when I just finished the bag from the get go, luckily there wasn't much left.  I think I might have to buy the bag, I will buy more, and leave it at home and only bring in a regular serving so I don't over eat it.

Practice up for college kiddies!

So I had on the Disney channel for my little guy and I saw this commercial, my first thought was OHH GEEZ, someone commercialized beer pong!  Then I realized that we were on one of the Disney channels.   They are selling kids beer pong?  Get them started early I guess, I didn't play beer pong until well into my twenties.  I could be on the pro circuit now if I had some practice in my teens.

Rocking and Running

I have been doing the diet thing for over a year, more seriously for the last three months.  Over all I have lost 45 pounds, 24 pounds in the last three months.  Last week I started hitting the gym at lunch time again since it seems that the weight loss has slowed down and I needed to kick the metabolism up a bit.  The first thing I did in the gym was run and I got out a half mile and didn't even have to push myself, it was easy.  The combination of weighing less and exercise has made it pretty darn easy for me to run a half mile.  Now that might not mean much for most, but for me at this point in my life is great.  When I first started my running I wanted to quit after a quarter mile, and I had to push through to get out a whole block.  Now let me say I am not going out and running any 5Ks soon, but it is nice to see progress.  It makes me feel good.

I guess it is National Blog Posting Month(NaBloPoMo)

A lot of my wife's blogging friends are participating in this blog month, and recently I have been thinking that i should post something on my blog since it has been awhile.  When hearing about NaBloPoMo it made me think of NaNoWriMo where you write a novel in the month of November.  I guess NaBloPoMo is modeled after NaNoWriMo.  Then I also ran across something that said November is 30 days of  Dead (as in Grateful Dead), where they allow you to listen/download unreleased tracks from their vault, and there are contests and stuff.  Do all months have these crazy things and I just don't know about them?  Maybe every one is just getting crazy because a lot of holidays are coming up and this is a crazy time of the year, or they aren't down from their Halloween sugar buzzes and they have a lot of energy to burn.

Well this is my first blog post in November, while I listen to some Grateful Dead.  I don't know if I will write every day for the month, that would be a huge jump from once a month.  I do have a couple of ideas so I may do few

I love me some Asian foods!

I went to the China City Buffet today and ate a couple of plates of deliciousness. I have to say that my favorite food is Asian food.  I like Mexican and I like Italian, but Asian is my weakness.

One time to prove to my love of Asian food to my wife I ate lo mein and egg rolls for a whole week.  If sushi didn't cost so dang much I would prove my love again, this time with sushi.  My birthday meal for the last five or so years has been sushi, the last two years have been to Nagoya.  I love that Nagoya Roll!

People always tell me that it doesn't keep them full.  I am not one that experiences this problem, maybe I eat too much of it in one sitting to effect me.  I don't even want to eat dinner right now and I finished lunch over five hours ago.  Although if someone said let's go to the china buffet for dinner I would grab my keys and say I'm driving.  I'm glad I don't hit the buffet up too often, I would be trying out for the Biggest Loser if I did.

My roots are showing.

I have been eating bananas a lot recently and I started eating my bananas upside down.  Not me hanging upside down, the banana is the one upside down.  Maybe if I could grip a branch with my feet I would be upside down, but I don't have monkey toes.
 If you grip a banana just so,  you can peel it usually easier than grasping the stem and pulling.  Sometimes when the banana is getting extra ripe the stem part practically just falls off and I just peel it that way.  When the banana is less ripe pinching the bottom and pulling is the easiest route into the delicious inside.

Someone told me this is how the monkeys do it.  I tried it this way and discovered these monkeys really know what they are doing.

I hate my garbage can

We recently bought a new garbage can for our kitchen, and boy did we make a bad choice in can lids.  I didn't really know that the lid would be a problem, but it is totally annoying.  It is one of those swing top cans, exactly like this:

The lid swings up or pushes down, which seemed fine at the store but....

There is no way to prop it up or no little pedal to step on to lift it, so if you have to scrape out a pan or a plate you have to take the whole damn thing off.  If you have crusty hands from handling raw chicken or something you don't want to be lifting the lid and spreading the salmonella around.  Then when you pre-plan and take it off early your little tyke decides to play with the new "toy" on the ground, eww gross.

If the garbage is getting kind of full it will get stuck on it and it won't swing back into place.  I know this might be time to switch out the bags, but there  is so much room left in the bags I feel I am wasting perfectly good garbage bag space.  Also if the can is too close to the wall and you push it down the back part of the swing top hits the wall and sticks it open too.

Never did I think that there would be this much hatred for a trash receptacle, but there is.  I think this can will be retired to the basement, and a new one will be used in the high use kitchen area.

Cruel Joke

I have been the recipient of a cruel joke recently.

We got a package in the mail, well my wife did.  She wasn't expecting one and didn't know what it was all about since it came straight from the store, so I started opening it for her.  It was very exciting, free packages brought by fed ex are always exciting, even though it was from an olive company (hate olives).  After I got the box open first thing I see BUBBLE WRAP!! Who doesn't love some bubble wrap?  I was excited to play with it and let the little guy walk on it and see him get excited about it.  It is always fun to watch the simplest things excite him, heck I like when the simplest things excite me.

Well not this bubble wrap.  No this is un-poppable bubble wrap.  How fair is that?  Why would you do that to a person?  I even stepped on it, granted I have lost some weight but I should still be able to pop it.  Not this stuff, the bubbles are all connected so the air just flows from one bubble to another.  Granted this is probably better for the safety of the product it is wrapping up, but who cares about that!  I want to pop some bubble wrap!

Nice gesture present to my wife ruined for me!

Sometimes when I am really hungry I picture a whole hoard of gremlins in my stomach fighting each other, like Michael Vick's dogs. That, of course, is where the growls come from.  Each gremlin is in there fighting the other ones so they are up front and center for when that food does come down the pipe.  None of the gremlins actually kill the other gremlins, if they did I wouldn't be so hungry, they just wrestle and growl a bunch.
Then when I do eat something they are on it, like a bunch of football players trying to grab a loose football.  The smarter ones wait for the second piece to come down the pipe, then there are multiple dog piles going on and it is just chaos!  Sometimes I fool them and drink something. They are so confused and don't really know what to do for a little while, but then they catch on and start fighting again.  I usually try to avoid these situations, I don't really like fighting, but I have tried to cut out evening snacking so in the morning there is a battle royal going on down there.    I might have to find the right time to eat a snack that will tide me over until breakfast.

'Olives' is an anagram for 'So vile'
I found this comic the other day and it fit me.  For me it is olives.  I hate olives, both black and green.  I don't even like the smell of them.  When someone says "what do you like on your pizza?"  I say anything but olives, even anchovies.  I have been told multiple times that your tastes change so you should try them again.  Well when I do try them again, not every year though, and I almost vomit.  Nasty! Nasty! Nasty! I hope nobody makes me try them again.

I am the Imelda Marcos of t-shirts

So I counted my t-shirts recently and had over 125, hard to get the exact count with that many.  That isn't even counting the long sleeve t-shirts or other shirts that I own as well.  Most of them are lined up on a metal pipe in my basement, kinda like above, except not as organized and more squished.  I also have some boxed in my attic that I didn't count.  My sister-in-law was saying that my bro had a lot of them, he only had 40.

I like t-shirts, I can't help it.  If I go somewhere new I usually stop at a Harley store and pick up a new shirt.  If I go to a store and there is a shirt with a fun saying on it I buy it.  I get some to support my favorite sports teams.  If the shirt.woot strikes my fancy I order it.  I have them from old jobs and Old Navy.  I have some that I inherited from my grandfathers.  Basically I have them from everywhere.

I think my oldest one is a Buffalo Bills one that I have had since high school, it has Jim Kelly on it.  I wore it in my picture for my college student ID.   I still break it out during the football season.  It is getting thin and developing holes, but it is still wearable.

Having said all that, I am starting to get rid of some of them.  I went through and pulled out old work shirts, and some others that I knew I never wear and wasn't going to wear.  I still have over a hundred, but I will probably keep going through them and pull out a handful at a time and slowly knock them down under a hundred.  The bar that they are hanging on is already easier to navigate.  I may start wearing ones I haven't worn in awhile because I forgot about them.  I can think of a couple that I am going to get rid of next time I go through them.  I am on a mission.

Since I am freeing up all this space it means I can buy some more right?

So I have been slacking

I apologize if you have been checking back regularly.  I just kinda dropped the ball a bit, for over 3 months.  I am going to give it a shot again and try to keep up with this better this time.

That isn't a fair trade

The current series of Ford commercials bug me every time I see one.  The ones where they swap out your normal car for a brand new Ford of a similar model.  They get the family to help and they supposedly let the unsuspecting driver use a fancy new car for a week or so.

My problem lies in the fact that it seems they always give them the decked out model of the vehicle to use.  They are praising the back up camera, super SYNC system (alliteration for my wife).  The turn by turn GPS.  Well if you take my car away and let me use all those fancy gadgets, that I can't afford, of course I am going to love your vehicle.  They should be trading cars with all the same perks if they want to get a fair comparison.   Maybe they really wanted those perks in their car but they couldn't afford the extra ten or twenty grand so they just got AC and power locks.  If they have vehicles with the same perks then they are on equal ground to start from and just compare the actual cars and their drives and roominess and whatnot.  They do say something about the actual drive of the vehicle but it is lost in all the gadgets they talk about and praise.  Don't know why I care I just do.

1 Mile

  I just got done running one mile. I don't know when the last time I ran one mile just to run one mile was. I have played some basketball where I may have covered a whole mile of running, but then again I was playing basketball. I have used the elliptical for a mile, but that is way easier than actual running. I inline skated a mile or biked a mile, but I can't count those since they have wheels.
  I have been doing some regular working out for the past few months and doing some good getting in shape. I was never really a big runner, but I had to run in all the sports that I played so I used to be able to run fairly well (not breaking any records or anything). I even had to run in track and field when my area of expertise was in the field throwing shot and discus. Somewhere along the line I heard May was national runners' month, I think Dick's Sporting goods may have invented it to sell shoes, but hey it got me motivated to do some running. I decided that I was going to run everyday in the month of May. Well on day two that was foiled by the flu, I wanted to run but I don't think I would have made it very far. I am not going to let that stop me from doing it the rest of the month. I started the journey on Saturday with a run around my block, which according to google maps is .61 miles. So far in four days I have logged 2.22 miles. Yesterday I ran my block again even though it was raining, I'm such a trooper. Today I took it inside to the health center indoor track and ran nine laps, which is one mile. Nine laps on the indoor track seemed so long just last week, but when I compared it to once around my block it didn't seem so far.
  Tomorrow I have a basketball game so I am not quite sure how long of a distance I should run. I don't want to count the game as my running since it isn't running just to run. We will have to see how the game goes to decide.

The A-Team

When I was growing up a show that I loved was the A-Team.  Yes I knew it was ridiculous and very far-fetched, but I still love all the action and explosions.  Well they are making a movie and I just saw the trailer.  It looks awesome.  I hope the movie is as sweet.

Doctor Prescribed Jiggling

You know when you are on the couch and some other person sits at the other end and shakes their leg?  Yeah I know you are getting annoyed just thinking about it.  Well I do it pretty frequently, and get yelled at for it occasionally.  Well I was told by my doctor that I should jiggle my legs.  I got checked out for clotting abnormalities when they heard my dad had a clot.  Turns out I inherited the chance of blood clots.  When the doctor asked what I did for work, I told her I worked at a computer all day. Hearing that she gave me some suggestions to help keep away the clots, including the leg jiggling.  So sometimes people are doing it for health reasons, as I sit here shaking the legs.

Feel good story!

What do most people do when they loose their job?  Well I think they would save their money and budget themselves to make it through some tough times.  Well not Reed Sandridge, he gives money to the needy.  He decided to give away ten dollars a day for a year to random people he doesn't know, story here.  His mom told him you need to give back when times are the toughest, so he is.  He is using some savings and unemployment to get by himself and help others.  He doesn't look for a specific person to help, some have jobs some don't, some are street performers.  He started a blog, here, to tell all about the people he helps.  His blog also has a page where you can lend a helping hand as well, some of the people that he helps could use even more help on top of the $10, like a new pair of shoes or a suit to wear to an interview.  His efforts seem like a whole job in itself, but I hope he finds a job so he can afford to keep giving for the whole year, and maybe longer too. Go Reed go!

I look good in a bass

This weekend I went to my friend B-Rad's for his birthday party.  There was grilling, beer pong and Beatles Rock Band.  There was also a little music playing.  I didn't do much playing but B-Rad taught me a few notes to play together and I tried, and I failed a lot.  He does have a sweet orange bass, that I would totally want if I knew what the heck I was doing.  I was much better at the beer pong part of the evening.

Why did I eat too much?

Last evening we decided that nothing in the house would cure our hunger so we went out for some steaks.  We haven't been to Outback in forever, literally.  We used to go there on a fairly regular basis, but we have been being good and cooking our own dinner.

The only problem I have ever had there is eating too much food.  I do it just about every time and I know that going into the restaurant.  I sit there and look at the menu and think I should just get the 10oz ribeye and not the 14oz.  When the waitress stands there and I make my order I say the 14oz every time.  My mind is thinking one thing but my stomach must take control of my mouth and say it for me.  I guess my stomach must have short term memory.  It also yells at me every time that I leave "why did you eat so much food?!"

I know, I know I don't have to eat every thing on my plate.  Well I can blame this on my parents for making me always clean my plate.  If I get it I eat it, totally my parents fault, not mine.

Bloggers Block

I know what you are all thinking, "you can't have writers block already!"  Well nothing good is coming to me now that I have officially started a blog.  My wife has stopped saying, "that would be a good blog post," I guess that is because I haven't said anything blog worthy for over a week.  There were a whole bunch of things that were "worthy" of posts before I started it up, of course I can't think of them now.  I have read about this phenomenon of having an idea then forgetting it when you have a chance to write it, but I never thought that it would effect me.  I promise there will be posts  in the future and I won't take such long breaks in between them.

Until later,

Here I go....(again on my own)

Well it won't be on my own, I know that my wife will be with me.  It also won't be down the only road I have ever known, since I haven't ever blogged before.

First thing I am going to do is get this layout the way I like.

Then I will have to try and remember some of those things that my wife told me would make a good blog post.

p.s. Couldn't resist turning first blog post into song, the song that happens to be the first tape I ever bought.
