The Lunatic Is In My Head

So, them Heats, hey?  I'm really glad they beat the Celtics in the conference finals, but you probably already knew that.  I like rooting for them.  I want to see the Heat run a real dynasty out there and do some absurd shit like winning 5 championships in a row.  I think that would be awesome.

The Pacquiao fight.  A lot of people say it was a joke and boxing is a joke because of the decision.  Me?  I just say the fight was rigged.  It happens.  Everybody knows Manny was in control of the fight and was beating the brakes off Tim Bradley.  The only round you could really give Bradley was MAYBE the 1st round because he was busier and Manny was sizing him up.  Manny should have knocked him the entire fuck out a few times.  Lesson learned.  Manny's gonna kill him in November.

Do any of you guys with the smartphones use Spotify?  I use it and I don't have one.  I think Spotify and Shazam would be the 2 most important apps for me to get if I had a smartphone.  I can take my iTunes on the road with me?  Sign me the fuck up.

I'm passively looking for a new record player.  There's too much good music media in this house that goes unused.  Plus, whenever I find myself wandering around and stumble into rummage sales, I always check to see if they have any wax.  I've found some incredible buys at rummages just digging through the crates of albums.  Shit, I got 2 copies of Thriller for 50 cents a piece back in high school off my shitty math teacher.  I'll still buy the occasional new album on vinyl if I think its worth it.  That being said, I need to find a cheapish copy of My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy with all the extras & shit.  Its a really dope package.

I spent like $200 on bullshit this weekend.  Shit that I'll have nothing to show for the money.  I hate that.

I'm listening to Dark Side Of The Moon right now.  You ever do the syncing up of Dark Side with The Wizard Of Oz?  It isn't great, but its a nice little escape/fantasy to try to believe.  Man, I fucking love this album.  Top 5 album of all time, and I won't even give anybody the dignity of a retort.  It's so fucking good.  I guess this is my top 5 albums in no particular order:

Dark Side Of The Moon
Abbey Road
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Aquemini
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Dude.  My asshole of an old man has so much good music.  I don't know what the fuck happened to him.  I'm sure not having any friends has something to do with it, but why stop being into music?  There's so much good shit here, and it ends in the early to mid-80s.  I don't see myself ever getting caught in that trap where you just stop listening to new music.  LP's already there with his romanticism of the 90's.  I guarantee there's older shit out there you've never heard that you would love, EP.  Give it a shot some time.

This is fun.  Let's talk about some more shit.  I have the weirdest cramp in my left hand between my thumb & index finger.


Why do people have these expensive weddings all the time?  Why do all these people need to be there and why do you need to rent out churches and halls?  Its such a waste of money, IMO.  Don't you realize you don't really have all these friends?  I understand the whole having all the family there, that's fine.  But why are you really inviting all these people you don't give a fuck about or don't really give a fuck about you?  To squeeze gifts & money out of them?  Think about it.  Think about how many real, actual friends you have.  People that will ride or die for and with you.  I guarantee that number tops out at 4.  And if you say otherwise, you might want to think a little harder about it.  Me?  My number is zero.  I have zero real friends in this world.  I don't know a single person that would, no questions asked, come get me out of some incredibly hairy shit if I was in trouble.  Have I put people off in the past?  Absolutely.  That being said, I spent a shitload of my life up to some time in 2004 doing what I could to help and please other people.  At some point, I said fuck it.  There was no reward in being a caring or helpful person all the time.  That might help explain some of how I am.  I don't know, I'm just rambling and spitballing here.

I started casually looking at getting new wheels for the Aveo.  Not sure why, but hell, they're cheap.  I could totally rock These Joints on the heavy Chevy.  I like those the best out of the 14" selection.  I don't want to fuck with resizing and what not.

Welp, I hope you all made it to the end here.  I'm gonna keep looking through the old man's records and looking for a new record player.  Probz going up north next weekend, too.  Gotta find the old dude that fixes small engines so I can get the sis's  recoil reassembled.  Finally boat the new gas tank, too.  I hope it's complete.

Why do I feel like I know more than I should (or wanted to) know about Mize after reading this post?

Part S, part NS.

Beth said...

I've been a big Pink Floyd fan for a long time (although it probably peaked 10-12 years ago) and while I definitely like Dark Side I honestly think it's over-rated.

I know I'm in the minority but I think The Final Cut is a much better album and actually is my favorite of theirs. I'd even rate Wish You Were Here and Animals over Dark Side.

ToddPacker said...

hard to leave the wall off that list, beth

ToddPacker said...

the final cut is grate

ToddPacker said...

I have shazam

ToddPacker said...

" I don't know a single person that would, no questions asked, come get me out of some incredibly hairy shit if I was in trouble"

one grate thing about having brothers

Beth said...

"hard to leave the wall off that list, beth"

Good point TP.


And for Floyd fans on here, I'd definitely recommend Roger Waters 1st solo album "Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking". Again I'm in the minority but I would put that up there with most Floyd albums.

Mize said...

I don't really care for the heavier Floyd stuff. I like them to soothe me.

tem said...

shocking but i have never heard any of those albums.

the only one i had even heard of is dark side of the moon.

they don't play them a lot on the country stations.

Mize said...

I am not shocked. I've been finding out lately that alot of people just don't really listen to music. It kinda makes me sad.

Suite. Somebody wants to buy my old bowling ball bag for ten bones. That worked out exactly how I planned.

El Padrino said...

"I guarantee there's older shit out there you've never heard that you would love, EP. Give it a shot some time."

dude i have every song the beatles ever recorded, every song sinatra recorded

i carry over 7000 songs maybe 20% is 90's rap which i still consider the golden era of hip-hop

El Padrino said...

it's surprising to me that my generation, beth, tp (lol), meiz, etc. like pink floyd

I'm a fan but Pink Floyd is straight drug music. When it came out you needed to be high as fuck to love it. At least that is what my uncle tells me.

Beth said...

"When it came out you needed to be high as fuck to love it."

What makes you think we aren't all high as fuck when we listen to it?

El Padrino said...

I love it because it's so different from what i was used to hearing and i sort of like the sonic sounds

Blue said...

i never been high as fuck...and i enjoy pink floyd

i agree with Beth though...dark side is overrated. Wish you were Here is my favorite.

El Padrino said...

"What makes you think we aren't all high as fuck when we listen to it?"

because i'm not

how the hell is Stony Brook a D-1 school?

Kod's gonna hate this Floyd talk. IIRC, he's not a fan.

SEAWOLVES!

You bet your balls.

this post is like being inside the room (a fly on the wall with ears) with a psychiatrist and meiz and some cleenex*

Blue said...

records are good shit.

I hosted a radio show on the university station one summer...all we did was play vinyl

they had an awesome vinyl selection

Keef said...

"how the hell is Stony Brook a D-1 school?"



Probably one of this dumb schools that is D-1 in 1 sport and not D-1 in every other sport

kod said...

Man, I fucking love this album. Top 5 album of all time, and I won't even give anybody the dignity of a retort.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


Brain Damage immediately started running through my head when I saw the post title, 100% agreed

top 5 non greatest hits albums IMO

1) Dark Side

2) Rumours

3) Boston (self-titled)

4) Thriller

5) All Eyez on Me

Blue said...

kod, rolling with 2pac

i like it

WEST SIDE

Keef said...

Bro, where is Nickelback on that list?

El Padrino said...

"Probably one of this dumb schools that is D-1 in 1 sport and not D-1 in every other sport"

d-i in every sport, the only requirement to be d-1 is the amount of scolarships given out to play sports

no?

El Padrino said...

i can't do a top 5 album list

Tyler said...

Volt Count = 2. This is replacing the Prius Count, which is now unmanageable.

Tyler said...

"Why do people have these expensive weddings all the time?"

Propose to a girl and see what happens.

Blue said...

"d-i in every sport, the only requirement to be d-1 is the amount of scolarships given out to play sports

no?"

they have to have 14 sports

kod said...

"Propose to a girl and see what happens."


Ha! So true

kod said...

remember when proposing that, very likely, bride to be has been planning the wedding since the age of 5 or so

El Padrino said...

watched an all star high school baseball game yesterday in coney island, came away very impressed

there was a kid there, edgar lebron, he's deaf (can't hear), was a hell of a player

hell of a player

this other kid almonte, played 1st was drafted by the blue jays a few days ago, 100K signing bonus

Tyler said...

kod said...

"they have to have 14 sports"


I would think Title IX probably keeps a lot of schools from making the jump, I am just assuming though

tem said...

even cmtem who was total low maintenance when it came to wedding planning had shit planned out.

she wouldn't admit it, but she did. she knew she didn't want kids in the wedding, she knew she wanted purple flowers, she knew all sorts of stuff.

tem said...

d 1 football has all sorts of rules. you need a stadium that seats so many people, you need all sorts of goofy shit.

i have no idear what the rules are for other sports to be D1 but football they are numerous and sometimes odd.

El Padrino said...

"remember when proposing that, very likely, bride to be has been planning the wedding since the age of 5 or so"


i'm not even addressing the meiz wedding comments

super retarded stuff

El Padrino said...

"they have to have 14 sports"

they do

i think 8 of those players got drafted to mlb, sick team

El Padrino said...

100K signing bonus is alot for dumb puerto ricans

good for that kid and family

El Padrino said...

84% of those kids were espanol

beisbol has been berry berry good to me

El Padrino said...

my cousin was one of the only white breads

Beth said...

"i'm not even addressing the meiz wedding comments"

Yeah, I thought about responding just to provide the woman's (NO! /zeke) point of view but decided to leave it alone.

Blue said...

"d 1 football has all sorts of rules. you need a stadium that seats so many people, you need all sorts of goofy shit."


yeah that's the difference between being FBS and FCS...need to avg 17K in attendance, have to have a stadium that seats at least 25K or something...have to offer 63 scholarships....blah

Blue said...

of those 14 sports to be a d-1 school, they have to have sports in all 3 seasons.

they have to have at least 6 mens sports, but no more than 7

they have to offer a certain amount of scholarship assistance.

of the 14 sports a certain number have to be team sports...so it can't all be golf and tennis and bowling and shit.

kod said...

"kod, rolling with 2pac

"Do you also keep score at baseball games and save those in a notebook?"


A few of my friends keep score of every game they go to, pro or amateur. They have the nice scorebooks & shit, too.

Keef said...

Are they hoping that a scorekeeper scout is at the game and will see them?

Mize said...

They just like to keep score, man. Their wives & girlfriends do it, too. A couple of them have pretty popular blogs they can use the info for, too.

Keef said...

gotcha

yeah, but okafor was older (a senior) and not very athletic
