ok so more than a year goes by and I decide to bring back the blizzog... Since my life revolves around work, sports, and music (in that order from largest to smallest), that's probably all I'm going to post about. Actually, sans talking about work and I left out movies & the wife (oops), so more to talk about there. Most definitely my new dog.

Blog is back bitch!

Oh yeah- the pics to the left are from my skydive!

King Curtis--Live at Filmore West

"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" aiff

I tried to put "Memphis Soul Stew" on the site but the file was too big. Speed Funk & horns above. Good show recommended from a buddy of mine who plays wicked air guitar.

Randy Floyd: "We still up for aerosmith tickets in the mornin'!?"
Wooderson: "OOOOHHHHHHH, ya damn right!"

Sound Dimension--Jamaica Soul Shake

"Full Up" mp3
As warmer weather slowly starts to become a regular, I normally will adjust accordingly. Musically, that is. Any beach/poolside tunes that enhance the day and match the gooey blender drink do nothing more than complete the equation. I found this album and I couldn't think of a better match. Easy-going, old school reggae to have on in the background. Please make sure your adult beverage is cold while listening.

Here's another review:
Get ready for the funkiest reggae ever to come out of Jamaica! The Sound Dimension were the in-house band at Studio One in the late 1960s and consequently played on more killer hits than….well most bands! In their time between recording hits for The Heptones, Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis and many more, they made killer instrumentals which have influenced Jamaican music ever since. The tracks on this album are a mixture of classic and super-rare tracks and you need to own a copy!

My apologies for the past two months of no posts, I've been commuting to the old college town back and forth every week and haven't had much time to post anything. I'll be updating more regularly again as I will be back in Birmingham next week for good.

Tip of the Day-
For all those poker fans out there, I'm sure you're all playing online at your preferred site provider. Party poker, Ultimate Bet, Fulltilt, poker room, poker, paradise poker, just to name a few. There's definitely a wide variety of sites to choose from and all pretty much offer the same thing. The only difference among these sites is their bonus offer, which can sometimes vary significantly depending where you sign up. I've got accounts at partypoker, paradise, and most recently fulltilt which is probably going to be where I play for good and it's because of this reason.... is an affiliate set up to drive new players to different sites while giving back to that individual player. This is how it works: Go to and sign up as a first time user for a poker site that you don't have an account with. For me, two weeks ago it was fulltilt. Basically, you're signing up the same way you would normally, there's only one difference. By signing up through, I'll get monthly deposits back into my new fulltilt account that will equal 27% of every raked hand I played that previous month. There' s no signup fee to or anything becuase they have negotiated deals with the pokersites to help drive new players to sign up. has about 10-15 different sites you can receive this deal and all have different percentages of incoming rakeback. So, if you play poker online and whether it's 1 hour a week or 12 hours a day, this is a great way to get a little back. They actually have a "rakeback calculator" on their site to figure up how much income you can pull in. It's crazy, people that play 2000+ hands a day can get back thousands of dollars in rakeback each month. Also, for all of thsoe mac users out there, fulltilt just released their software and I would definitely recommend the site. Their bonus is 100% match up to $600 for first deposit.

Hostel-- Rating: 6.5 out of 10

I watched a Tarantino interview the other day and he was discussing how the horror genre was on a comeback. He wasn't kidding. I went to go see Hostel today and sat through 8 previews that were all horror films coming soon. Shit to be honest, they all looked pretty good.

Hostel was an interesting flick about 3 dudes who are backpacking through Europe and get a tip on a hot spot to bang chicks in Slovakia. They get this tip around 5am while taking bong rips in Amsterdam so it made perfect sense to hop the eurorail and head east. Anyway, after an interesting evening with a couple hot bitches at the bar and in the bed, shit starts to get weird. Believe it or not, this film made both "Saw" and "Saw II" look like Big Top Pee-Wee. Probably the goriest movie I've ever seen. And that's a pretty bold statement. 6 years ago I traveled to Europe with a couple buddies so maybe there was a personal eeriness incorporated into the whole story. Eli Roth must have smoked mad rock while writing the script and definitely had Tarantino fueling the fire by all of the random gore involved. I think Tarantino has a thing for asian chicks as well. Definitely not "scream" so don't even think about taking the girlfriend/wife with you to this. This is about as hardcore as it gets. Naked Chicks, vomit, booze, grass, chopped off limbs, gunshots, and swearing. Could you ask for anything else in theatrical entertainment?
