Music Helps. Number two in the series of the songs that get my blood pumping.
Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies. One of those crazy punk songs from back in the day. I thought I was so IT listening to this stuff.
Despite my delusions of cool, the song is still fun, funny, and tight.
Here Comes Sickness by Mudhoney. I saw them play at Castaic Lake near LA in 1992 with Sonic Youth and Pavement. Kurt Cobain even came out and played with them a bit.
The pit at that show was on sand and there was so much dust kicked up I could hardly breathe (in addition, of course, to the crush of a few hundred bodies around me).
[Do you do torrents? If so, here is a recording of that show. I haven’t downloaded it so proceed at your own risk.]
Blister in the Sun by The Violent Femmes. I was introduced to this song as a freshman in college.
I got to see them play this tiny little bar made of a few double-wide trailers hooked together. (Mississippi. Go figure. ;-)) Still, it was a helluva show.
Health-wise, this period was one of the worst in my life: I started smoking. I gained 20-25 pounds. I lazed around and bitched about having to walk about the whole third of a mile or so across campus to classes, etc. Boy was I a winner.
(Hells . . . at least I survived to become the SuperJohn I am now! ROFLMAO!)
More tomorrow . . . .
Exercise. Yesterday’s Ups testing day was a success: for each exercise, I hit a good mark.

Review (from Yesterday). I did the kettlebell swings last and I could tell it was gonna be tough. I probably could have done a few more but I wimped out.
I pretty well on my push-ups, with only a few seconds of rest during the whole set.
The pull-ups still sucked, but at least I got the three I needed to move on to the JV level.
Of all the exercises, I was surprised that the sit-ups seemed to be the easiest. They still killed me by the very end, but getting there seemed to be smoother than the other sets.
Plan for Week 43.
