morning babble / Friday 05-20-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Thank you Friday for arriving.
LoCARB & MEATY MAY still going for myself. Feeling really, really good. My +/- with poundage for the month is now at -12.2 lbs since May 1st. Again, weight loss isn’t really the goal, but so far it’s been a whole lot of fun to track this month. I’ll do that Bring Sally Up Push-up Challenge on Sunday – update that on Monday. I’ve got to do better than 13 / 14. A couple months ago, I hit 16 but that’s not on tape. We’ll see what happens Sunday.
226 days until EXIT PLAN
Oh – someone caught me posting that I was listening to Sam Cook on vinyl and they asked – “Really?” Yes – really. I have Sam Cooke – Portrait of a Legend
New Music Friday:
- It’s finally here – Harry’s House by the one and only Mr. Harry Styles. Reading through all these reviews, I saw one from The Telegraph that I really liked – it described this album as “a delicious Eighties party record from a big romantic.” This is Harry’s third LP and you get just over 40 minutes of music spread out over 13 tunes. He was on the Today Show yesterday – rocking it out in a unitard? a onesie? Video Clip – I could so never, ever do that. Some songs that I liked “Music for a Sushi Restaurant” and “Grapejuice”.
- Okay – there’s this new song out from the creative mind of Mark Ronson. He’s got Blur’s main man, Damon Albarn doing some singing – video clip. Then, he also has Hip-Hopper Wale (wa – lay) doing the rapping – video clip. It’s called “Bird Calling.” I can’t figure out if I really like it or not.
- “Big Poppa,” “Juicy” and “One More Chance” – all of them huge hits from the one and only Notorious B.I.G. If he was still here today – he would be turning 50 tomorrow (5/21). As we all know, his life was cut tragically short back in 1997 at age 24. But – last night at midnight, we got a new song from Biggie. It’s called “G.O.A.T.” and it’s pretty damn good. Well done by the people looking over his estate to have this created.
- This past Wednesday . . . 5 years ago . . . we lost the great Chris Cornell. Doesn’t seem right still – at all.
Enjoy World Whiskey Day tomorrow (5/21) – I got my Elijah Craig for that moment!
