This Bearded Life

office-plants said: Happy Go Sucky Fucky by Die Antwoord would be a good work out some, it's faster than I Fink U Freeky.

That is a great song, one of my favorites off Donker Mag, which is a great album too.  Thanks for the reply!

Whatchu listening too?

I’m looking for some new workout musak for if when I start back to working out.  So I thought I’d turn to my reader (yes, I’m talking to you).  If you have a workout playlist you dig, go to it, hit shuffle and, if you would please, share your first 10 random songs that play.  For example purposes, I’ll go first:

Playlist: runmothafuckarun

1. American Jesus - Bad Religion

2. I Fink U Freaky - Die Antwoord

3. Treat Me Like Your Mother - The Dead Weather

4. Swamp Song - Heartless Bastards

5. 2x4 - Blind Melon

6. That’s My Bitch - Jay-Z & Kanye West

7. Sex Type Thing - Stone Temple Pilots

8. Verse Chorus Verse - Nirvana

9. Starstruck - Lady Gaga

10. Mobscene - Marilyn Manson

Hopefully we’ll all get some new stuff to listen to when we’re killing it.

Six Pix

The interwebs are on FIRE with this six picture thing, so being the sheep/lemming that I am, here we go:

(Note: some of these pictures are selfies done with an actual camera, not a cell phone.  Yes, I’m that old.)






1. December ‘08 - I used to put together a compilation of what I listened to for that year, not necessarily the best of the year, but what I listened to.  Like a kind of musical year in review.  This was the photo for the back cover of my 2008 CD.  I like the old school headphones and smoke in the beard.

2. August ‘09 - Touching myself at the bean in Chicago.  Merle and I were in town for the Pearl Jam shows.  LOVE Chicago.

3. May ‘12 - On I-29 South to Kansas City for the Do Life 5K.  I got up at like 5:30, drove down in my running clothes, ran, and then drove back home.  Also, the night before this picture is when I started this blog.

4. July ‘12 - Merle and I at the Color Run in Council Bluffs, IA.  Her first 5K.  She’s the bomb.

5. February ‘13 - B and I at Disney in Florida.  Such a great trip and I really love this picture of the both of us.  (Technically it’s not a selfie, but it’s my post so EFF off.)

6. March ‘13 - Me trying to do my best Opie from SOA.  Beard game is strong in this one.

Truly an honor to watch you these past 20 years. A true class act.

No. For the THIRD and final time, NO. I don’t want any of your fucking birthday cookies. Yes, they look very delicious, but it’s 8:23 in the fucking morning for the love of pants. Oh, and walking away and then coming back 45 seconds later won’t change my mind either.


Its an addiction I’m not willing to get help with

I bought 10 of these today as they were on sale for $.50 each.   Cherry Limeade is the shit.
