Hi Low

It's a double entendre of a title without all the creepy sexual meanings.

Obviously I could be referring to the Craps bet of a High/Low where you throw out a sum and it's split evenly between the 2 and the 12.

However I could also be referring to the general way that life works, full of peaks and valleys.

Lets focus more on meaning number two for now.
Over the last month or so I've had a few new subscribers and I want to thank all of them right now.
The newest is Vegas Linda Lou who runs an interesting blog full of life observations.  She is also a practicing comedian (which as some of you know I eventually want to give a try) and has a book out (which my kindle will find soon) about moving to Vegas and getting into comedy.

Chad W has also started following me, better known as 24fanatics to the interwebs.  He does not run a blog because No One Reads It.

k9dr, Lucki Duck (a poor lost Cowboy fan) and Pokah Dave are all recent additions to my cult.  ~coach, Flasherman (what a great name) and Colors of my World all round out the "within the last month or so" additions.

So, thanks all for stopping by and reading the shit that runs through my brain.  I'm happy to have ya here and hope you finish your dinner so you can get your just deserts!!!

I'm currently listening to Slash with Myles Kennedy Made in Stoke which is a pretty sweet album.  The more I listen to him the more I enjoy Myles Kennedy.  I wish I would have been able to see the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame set they played but I'm sure I'll be able to catch it on YouTube soon enough.  Really looking forward to Slash's new album - the only song (You're a Lie) is great rock.
My ultimate dream would have been for the original Gunners to set aside their differences even if only for one night to accept the award and play a set - though I understand it was not possible.
Like him or hate him, I think Axl is probably the last great Rock personality.  He's a rebel, he speaks his mind and he doesn't care what anyone else does or thinks.  He is his own man whether it's good for business or not and I'm still a fan and hope that (the new) GnR comes out with another album soon.  I think I'm one of the few that really enjoyed it the whole way through!

On the low side, I'm just a bit burnt out and I blame it on the opening shifts at work.  I am not, nor will I ever be, a morning person.  Being awake before 5 am is punishment for some sort of sin that I don't realize I have committed yet.  I'm looking forward to going back to a normal working schedule and eventually getting into the Casino Gaming Business.
I'm also running on low because I've been running so much.  Wednesday is the last day of my "out and about" phase for now and I'm looking forward to some quiet time at home with myself, my dog and my PlayStation!

  3. This post made me realize that I had not "officially" followed your blog (even though I've ready every single post for about the last two months).

    This oversight has now been corrected. Apologies...

    1. No worries so, my ego can only expand so rapidly before it self implodes so I like my cult to slowly grow over time instead of EXPLODE onto the scene like Vanilla Ice only to fizzle out like a bad fart and be remembered as the "cuntcakes" guy

  4. Linda's book is a good read, with plenty of giggles along the way.

    "Poor lost Cowboys fan." A vicious and unprovoked attack ...
    I like it!

    1. How am I the only one who just found out about Linda like moments ago but others have already read the book and love it?

      With age I become more behind the times

  5. Thanks for the mention, grrouchy! And thanks, too, to Lucki Duck for the endorsement of my book. Very much appreciated!

    1. I'm all about whoring other people out when they deserve it.
      However, now that I know at least two people who have read it I'm virtually forced into getting it so that they aren't cooler than I

    1. Competition is over - and Josie outs herself as the Loser of it even.
      Time and Space will be crashing around noon for a reboot - it's been nice knowing everyone

  7. Well, I reckon now seeing both you and Josie pimping out Linda (I love opening sentences that can be easily misconstrued) I'm going to have to give her a read as well.

    I'm like JT88 except that your post made me realize that I haven't really officially "followed" any blogs (although I do list several prominent bloggers in my "blog roll" *cough cough* which is one way of doing that as well. So I guess when I get a few minutes I'll go on a following spree. If nothing else, I know that means that VJ will post about how I'm her 69th, or 73rd or 128th man or whatever it is.

    Here's to your opportunity to recharge - although hopefully you'll still make it up to the northern hinterlands from time to time.

    3. And Fixored sir - I think I used to have your "Vlog" up but it wasn't updated often - I do now have your new one up however I couldn't follow the link to "I really love Blondes" or whatever it was called!

      Delete
    4. That post was down for technical reason for a bit but is now back up.

      I'll still be posting videos in the blog, it's just that we weren't able to crank them out that often and I wanted to have more regular content, so I started writing - though not all that regularly.

  8. Still Love Guns and Roses...it's a shame Axl doesn't want anything to do with the band...there were definitely pioneers

    1. Yeah - nothing would have given me a bigger thrill than for some sort of surprise performance.

      I had this dream that during the RRHOF GnR would be introduced and the opening rifts of Welcome to the Jungle would play as Slash walked on stage.
      Then you'd get the growl of Axl's voice with the beginning scream and he'd walk out to the stage.

      The whole audience would go fucking nuts and it's possible that the end of civilization would have happened and I could die a happy camper

    1. LoL - it's impossible for anyone to read your "blog" and as such the title is fitting and quite amusing!
