Song of the Day....


Almost every day on Facebook I post a song of the day...Normally there is no deep meaning behind it...Some days it just may be a song that is in my head...Some days it is picked based off of a chat at work...Like when a co-worker thought "The Joker" by the Steve Miller Band was done by The Offspring....Kids these days...Some days I just go through the 1500 songs on my iPhone and pick a random tune...On rare days like today, it has a little more behind it...

I was looking at Facebook and Twitter and was just getting sick...The constant posts about politics and disagreements about our political views...And yes, I'm guilty of it...then there are the news stories of murder and mistreatment and all around shittieness...This just leads to many of us judging entire groups by the acts of the bad apples...

The overriding theme on the Internet and it seems to be so in real life, has become Anger and Hate...And I understand the anger...I'm an angry asshole a lot of the time...

But fuck it! We need some love up in this bitch...Watch the video for today's song of the day...Let inspire you...And go out and fucking hug someone!

Monday Moaning




Cleveland is thrilled this morning...I'm happy for them...I'm happy for Cavaliers fans...I'm happy for the people who never paid attention to basketball but jumped on the 'we have a chance' bandwagon...I'm happy for the people who think some mythical curse was broken Sunday night...There was no curse...There was bad luck, better teams, and piss-poor management (just look at the Browns)....

I have never been a Basketball fan...I've never been a Cavs fan...I've never been a LeBron James fan...Hell, I'm more of a LeBron James the actor in "Train-wreck" then I am of the basketball player....So I didn't jump on the bandwagon during this run...And I'm not going to write some bullshit post like I'm Johnny Fucking Cleveland Cavalier Fan...I respect the true fans too much...I respect my hometown too much...And I respect myself...So I'm not going to sing the praises of the LBJ and Kyrie Irving, and the rest of the Cavaliers, like I have some fucking clue about the games I didn't watch...

I'm happy friends and family and fans are excited and happy...The big win had no impact on me...The AHL Lake Erie Monsters Calder Cup win was a bigger deal to me...If the Tribe takes the World Series this year...Then you may see me lose my shit...

Quickly after the win... The wonderful world of Social Media annoyed me...As the WKYC Facebook feed asked: "What Does this Championship mean to you?"

The top comment stated this:   "It means OUR CITY is FINALLY Validated!!!"

Again, Cleveland friends and fans, I'm happy for ya...But this guy is a fucking asshole... If it takes a sports team to validate a city for you, I feel very sad for you...I would think it would give greater validation if the city's schools were the best in the country, or if the unemployment rate was at record low, and the average income at record high...

I know the History of Cleveland and Cleveland sports...The first 40 years of my life are all in Cleveland...I suffered the same painful fandom losses...It sucked...But losing sports teams never made me feel like the city was a steaming pile of shit...The steaming pile of shit in Lake Erie could give that impression for you...The city of Cleveland has great Universities...Great Hospitals...An amazing and underrated food and restaurant scene...It's always had a great music scene, and performing arts...The Art Museum is unfucking real...

There are plenty of great things that should have validated the city for you...Millionaires winning a championship with your city's name on their uniform should not be what makes you think your city is worth a damn...

What the city and it's people do as a whole makes it what it is, not a team of rich guys that live there because of their paychecks...

I'm glad you're happy Cleveland fans...I'm proud to say I'm from Cleveland...And I'm proud you crazy fuckers didn't burn the whole mother fucker down...We all know how easily the river lights up!


Have a week....

Question: Sleep Number Beds



 For some time we have been hearing about "Sleep Number Beds"...They seem to have become popular...you know the commercials where him and her share what their " Sleep Number" is...I've also talked to friends who have them and they love it...

 The basic idea is you and your partner can set your individual sides of the bed to your specific settings for optimum sleep comfort.... But there is a question that no has come out and answered about these beds....

 What about sex?

 I know, I'm a pig...But I like to be comfortable when it's time to get some stank on the hang-low...I'm sure most of us prefer to be comfortable when it's time to bump uglies...So how are you suppose to set your "Sleep Comfort Bed?"

 Does it depend on who's on top, or bottom? Or is there specific settings for each position?

 I'm sure this seems trivial, but these beds are a big investment and I'm sharing this bed...I want us to be comfortable not just when we're sleeping, but when I'm laying the wood too...

The salespeople don't answer this question...The website doesn't...We all aren't lazy, just using this thing to sleep...I plan on driving this bitch to Pound-Town! So help me out...

 What's your sex number?

Monday Moaning (Make America Smart Again)



America...The greatest country in the world...Well, at least that's what we Americans say...And what the hell do I know, I haven't lived anywhere else...But this country was built on freedom...And if nothing else the idea of what America should be was some great shit...But I feel slowly the country has been going off the rails...Mainly because our political system has been corrupted...Originally a Government of the people, by the people, for the people...Now a Government of people, ignoring the people, for themselves...

So it is no surprise that so many people like the idea of Bernie Sanders shaking shit up...While a career politician, he's not the typical politician, and clearly hasn't worked well with the DC machine...If it wasn't for the DNC rigging the system, Sanders would be a pubic hair away from snagged the nomination away from Clinton....

Clinton is and has been a part of the machine...It's understandable why people don't like/trust her...She plays the games...She puts on fake accents when speaking to people in the south, or largely black groups...She panders to everyone but only looks out for those who line her pockets...And when she speaks at rallies, she sounds like an old hand crank siren, slowly revving into that god-awful wail or hers...Like a broken fucking trumpet....

Then we come to Trump...I totally get why people have gravitated to this ass-hat...He looks like a political outsider...He shoots from the hip when he speaks...Doesn't think shit through at all...just says what he feels, no matter how stupid it is...No matter how much of a lie it is...And my does he lie...But give him credit, he stands by his lies...He holds his ground...

He says he'll get things done and back it up with 'because I said so'....He says racist shit, that he doesn't think is racist...But it pulls in a group of dolts...He says Reality TV show guy stuff that has a catchy tag-line...Boom, he grabs another group of dolts...He pontificates about what a great business man he is, and that's how he's going to fix the economy and "Make America Great Again"...He grabs more dolts with that...Dolts that ignore that just about all his businesses have gone under...(The guy tried to sell steaks exclusively at Sharper Image!  Can you say retard?)   Or like Trump University, were a scam...He will tell you about Clinton possibly being indicted, but not the the numerous lawsuits that are pending against him...

Americans are sick of the way things have been...Parties drawing lines in the sand and not working together...Their representatives not voting how the people feel, but voting based on backroom deals...They're sick of delegates and super-delegates going against their vote...They're sick of stupid ass caucuses being decided by coin flips...They're sick of the Electoral College and just want a straight up and down popular vote...Americans aren't being listened to by the people that represent them...They're pissed...

So Trump is capitalizing off of this...The big DC outsider is going to shake things up...There's one problem...Trump isn't an outsider...Trump has been lining the pockets of City, State, and Federal government officials forever...Trump has put money in the pockets of politicians from both parties...Including his now rivals, Bill and Hilary Clinton...

Trump does what is best for him...He won't do what's best for you...Trump joins whatever party is best for him personally:

1964-1987 Democrat


1987-1999 Republican


1999-2001 Reform Party


2001-2009 Democrat


2009-2011 Republican


2011-2012 Independent


2012-Present Republican 



Trump may be bucking the Republican party, but he won't buck the system as much as you have been lead to believe....

A number of years ago I wrote a tongue and cheek blog about running for President...Well, maybe it's time to go for it...For real this time...

Let's MAKE AMERICA SEXY AGAIN!




Hmmm...3 British models as my campaign models may be held against me...But they sure seem to like us!

Maybe we need a better tag-line...


MAKE AMERICA SMART AGAIN!



Of course, the people that walk around wearing their " 'Murica " gear, or show themselves blowing shit up on facebook and then type  "  'Murica " are going to be bothered by this...Because they'll feel I'm calling them stupid...Well, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck...Is it that hard for you to just write America...I find you to be less patriotic if you can't spell the country's name in full...

Any way...Here are a couple bullet points for my campaign...

*Legalize pot...Tax that shit just like alcohol and cigarettes...It's no worse for your health then those legal substances...So lets legally sell it, buy it, tax it, and use those tax dollars to help improve our fucked up public school systems...

*Do away with pennies...It costs 3 cents to make that stupid 1 cent coin...start rounding to the nearest nickle...

*Legalize Prostitution...Many of us provide services in our jobs...So do whores...People should stop looking down on them just because the perform acts for money, that most self respecting people wouldn't...I mean seriously...There are very few women out there who are gonna let you bang the hell out of them and then take a shit on their face....Or give you a blow job while you're taking a dump...
The benefits to this...Now we can regulate these women...Have them tested regularly, so there isn't a fear of disease...And most importantly...These gashes are finally paying taxes on all that cash they've been making eating cock!

*Civil Rights...Civil Rights is defined: "the rights of citizens to political and social freedom and equality."  Okay fuckers...That means everyone...White, Black, Hispanic, Gay, Straight, what the fuck ever...And no you are not allowed to drag religion into this...Remember separation of Church and State....Remember the First Amendment?  "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

We are not a "Christian Nation"...We are a nation of many religions...Just as we are a nation of immigrants...Remember back in second when Sister Rose taught us about America being "The Great Melting Pot"...Then we all grew up and a bunch of us became idiots wanting to build Trump's wall because some how Mexicans stole your jobs...Last I checked you had no intention of picking of being out in the heat all day picking vegetables for $20 a day...

*Close the tax loopholes and stop with the insane tax breaks for corporations...Don't believe how bad it is...In 2011 Citigroup made $4 billion in profits and paid no federal income tax...from 2007-2011 General Electric made $26 billion in profits and not only paid no federal income tax, it got a $4.1 billion refund... Boeing gets approximately a $100 million refund from the IRS annually...Conoco Phillips, which is the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks...I can go on for day with this shit people...It's public record...But so many don't bother to look...

That's why we have to make AMERICA SMART AGAIN...So we can get control of our politicians...And get control of our country...


Have a week!

A Broken Generation (Musically Speaking)




I have been working at a new job since December and it wasn't hard to notice that many of my co-workers are younger then me...That was never something that would bother me, because I've always felt younger then my age...And acted accordingly as well!  But the gap seems to be getting larger, and some of these kids are just dolts...Some are great, and it gives me a glimmer of hope...But my God the dolts really are trying to drag them down...These dolts are in the 18-25 age group...

This week, I had an encounter with one of these young-ins that I don't consider a dolt...The song "Born in the USA" came on, and she said, 'Can't go wrong with some Kid Rock!"  Shocked, I replied "WHAT!?!"  She said, "Isn't this Kid Rock?"  I had to inform her it was Bruce Springsteen, and recorded before she was born...

A day or so later another co-worker, closer to my age shared a story about one of the young dolts not knowing who Tom Petty was....Asking, "When was he popular?" and "When did he perform?"  I was baffled that those questions had to be answered...While I'm a hug music lover/fan, I've never been a huge Tom Petty fan...But I know who the fuck he is...I know a bunch of his tunes...And there are plenty that I like...Holy crap on a cracker...

But this story didn't end...No fucking way Johnny...It got worse...The dolt then informed my seasoned colleague that "Michael Buble is this generation's Frank Sinatra".........huh?  The fuck you say!?!

Sinatra only had countless hit songs...Starred in 64 movies...Was the co-lead with Marlon Brando in "Guys and Dolls"...He setup JFK with Marilyn Monroe...Buble doesn't have the music or movie resume, and last I checked (for comparisons sake) he hasn't gotten President Obama laid with Scarlett Johansson....




But it's still not over...With mother fucking, honest, straight face, this dope said, "One Direction is this generation's Beatles'....Well doll, then there is no fucking help for your damn generation! Do you have any idea what the Beatles did musically? Do you not understand how they changed the industry...I'll put up just George's demos against the entire auto-tuned One Direction catalog of shit, and I'll win hands down...WTF/OMFG/SMH...You name it...I thought it...Even, FYDB....(Fuck You Die Bitch)...I have heard some dumb shit in my 40 years on this Earth...Without a doubt, comparing One Direction to The Beatles has jumped to the top of the list...That people, is a chokable offense!


I know, not all 18-25 year-olds are dolts...And I know they all aren't so musically retarded...But from what I'm hearing and seeing, there are plenty....

There is hope coming down the road...My oldest daughter, some of her friends, and nieces are all listening to a large variety of music...My daughter for example is into some scream rock/punk/emo shit...But it's based in Rock...But she also likes classic rock...She has a bunch of Beatles and 'Stones songs on her iPhone...She likes some pop-rock stuff...And she's into Twenty One Pilots...(young kids music I was into a couple years before her)...She's a also a heck of a clarinet player with a bit of Jazz under her belt...Thankfully some of us raised our kids right...Hopefully they'll be able to turn the dolts around, or at least educate the dolts kids!


But in case we get some young ones reading this...I'll share a bit of music they should hear, just to get them on track....






















And since Siouxsie Medley is featured at the top of this post, why not some Dead Sara...





There is good music out there...Old and new...Spread it, before the dolts spread too much of their stupidity!

Monday Moaning



After some time off and a few drinks, Monday Moaning is back!

After a personal and site related falling out with one of our partners, my pal Jeff and I felt the need to leave You Gab Sports...But we didn't want to quit...We wanted to move forward and build a better blogging community, not strictly tied to sports...No schedules...No stress...Open to all, to write about whatever they feel...So we have started the Gabbing Community ...We hope you will check it out and join in if you have something to say...

Now, onto the Moaning...

Word has come out the media whore Bruce Jenner...Yes, I still say Bruce because he didn't have his cock and balls removed, so I'm not calling him Caitlyn...So, the media whore is going to be gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated this Summer...NUDE...Only wearing an American flag and his Olympic medals...So Bruce, and the media and PC world want us to call him Caitlyn...and not him, but her...They are very adamant about it...But Caitlyn didn't win those fucking medals...Bruce did damn it! 

It's funny how Jenner and the media want this Caitlyn/Bruce separation, except when it's convenient for them, their story, and what's going to get him more notoriety...There was also the Jenner at the ESPY's excepting the Arthur Ashe Award...This dude in a dress stood there rambling on like he was the face of the women's rights movement...You have a dick, put on a dress and had plastic surgery and hormone injections...You did nothing to fight for women and their rights...You haven't done anything to help with the inequality of pay...You haven't done anything to fight against the states that are De-funding Planned Parenthood...and yes fuck sticks, Planned Parenthood does a helluva lot more for women's health issues than just abortions...(that's another blog)...Jenner you are not a voice for women...

You want to be a voice for Trans-gender people, have at it...There are plenty of people that are freaked out about this talk of what public fucking bathroom trans-people are going to use...That's become another one of those issues the media is harping on...The old look at this shiny thing while this real important evil shit is going on over here...How about this...If you stand to piss, men's room...If you sit to piss, ladies' room...

But this just isn't about Jenner and his need for attention...This is about Sports Illustrated desperately trying to stay relevant and getting on that hard riding PC train...SI, like so many (time sensitive)  magazines and newspapers has been losing people's interest...This is the 'I have a smart-phone fuckers, I don't need you' generation...SI's Swimsuit issue still does well...But honestly, porn is all over the Internet for free...And you can get swimsuit issue, spank-bank material right on Instagram...

So what did SI do this year?  They screwed up the swimsuit issue with PC shit, putting "plus sized" and older models in it...I hate to be a pig ladies, but I agree with comedian Mark Normand, not all women are beautiful, and we should have a standard when it comes to the old man's spank magazine...





When speaking of beautiful women, maybe Michael Rapaport put it best in the movie "Beautiful Girls"...





Everything described there Bruce, you ain't it!  You and SI are just a couple of whores trying to stay relevant in this Kartrashian World...


I'll sum it up like this...Bruce Jenner, no one wants to see a 66 year old woman with a dick wearing nothing but Olympic medals...And Sports Illustrated, you're alienating your core audience of baby-boomers by putting a 66 year old woman with a dick wearing only Olympic medals on you cover...

That's it for now...

Have a week!

Question: "The '59 Sound"



The band, The Gaslight Anthem wrote a song awhile back called, "The '59 Sound"...in the song, a very good question is put to the listener...Death, other than the being dead part, is a great unknown...What happens? What do we see? What do we feel? What do we hear? In this song, the key question is,what is the last thing that we hear when we die?


So, we don't know what we hear...If we hear anything...The question I'm putting to you, and myself, is what song do you want to hear when you die?   What will be the soundtrack of your death?

And no sappy answers like, 'the loving voices of my family'...Nope...No way...What song?


Here is my answer...






Now it's your turn...

What's your death song?
