Not so much of a man. I didn't go last night. I decided to wait. I'm still getting used to it again and I don't want to overdo it.

I got up at 6AM and did the weights this morning.

I recommended Gone Girl to a guy at work who liked audiofiction and he is listening to the book. He had a question: If the family was hurting so badly, where did Nick come up with the hundred grand to pay for the lawyer?

Danny,

The very last thing I want to be is the guy who is, like, "I quit drinking now everyone else has to". I applaud you cutting down to one night a week, and if you can do it, I doubly applaud. I wish I could, but I don't think it will work for me.

I do know from bitter experience that alcohol is a big cause of depression and anxiety, and it makes it worse as time goes on. I fought it and kept trying to treat my problems with alcohol. I crashed. Hard.

Best to you, sir.

Thanks for the kind words about the forum. I appreciate it. My own feelings are mixed. It's nice to have this place, and I like everyone a lot, but it also adds to my depression sometimes. Coming here is a constant reminder of trends in the genre and publishing that make me really sad. I like the old system better. Hell, I like the old genre better. But that is just part of getting old myself, I guess.

I had a good workout this morning and I am going again this evening. I did cardio on an elliptical trainer at six AM, and I plan to do weights in a couple of hours.

Damn. I guess I won't be seeing it.

I know that everyone won't agree, but I think Aja is a damned good director, and Horns was a hell of a book. I'm looking forward to this.

In the end, we like what we like. Weird Al brings me precious happiness, and he has for decades now. What more can I ask for?

Look at it this way: Al always gets permission to do every song he parodies. Artists all consider it to be an honor to have Weird Al Yankovic parody their music. Well, Lady Gaga said no and backpedaled when she got bushwacked by scores of people, and Eminem acted like a little bitch about it, but most see it as the compliment it is.

The only person to have consistently said no to Al has been Prince.

He cashed in on my generation's songs too. Only I hated them as much as I hate popular songs today.  Tongue Well, not AS much...

I meant see him live if you get a chance.
9  Horror Drive-In / Broken Speaker / Re: Weird Al's Upcoming Album on: July 23, 2014, 03:57:53 PM
To my ear he and his band tighten up every song they do.

Humor works for some and not for others. I think Weird Al is a genius who skewers popular trends with wit and skill. He would not have survived this long without being sharp and talented.

You probably won't, but if you get a chance, check out Weird Al live. Your mind might change.

I wonder if that will help. I had a cortisone shot, which worked wonders.

Be sure to let us know what you think, Jeff.

That's what I'm doing. It is just hard to keep starting all over again. I'm starting all over with the gym again, too. My knee was in bad shape and then I got sick with the pneumonia. I couldn't go for two months. Now I'm going again and I feel it in every inch of my body.

I'm not giving up.

Yes, Elm Street 3, Body Double, and Ghost Story!
14  Horror Drive-In / Drive In Theater By Night / Re: Sharp Objects Revisited on: July 23, 2014, 08:48:08 AM
I love Sharp Objects, which is totally different from her other two novels. It's like Melrose Place on acid.

With a little Gummo on the side.

For me he tries so hard to be hip and edgy that it is laughable.
