Kanye admits he had an ego problem in the past and said he’s about to change…

It’s pretty well-known that Kanye has said  and done some pretty egotistical things about himself over the years. Like the Taylor Swift MTV VMA’s incident and things like that. Maybe Kanye looked back at all the stuff he has said about himself in interviews and felt guilty about it.

Yeah, a lot of music stars out there have huge egos but most of them will never admit it. I give Kanye props for finally admitting it. How can you tell that you might have an ego problem? Well, if you have other musicians and even music fans looking at you with pure disdain then that’s a sign that you might be an egomaniac and narcissist.

I think other music artists and bands out there could learn from Kanye here. There are even plenty of local bands and unsigned talent with huge egos too. There are music artists and bands of all levels that think they’re so talented and great… they are not afraid to speak out about it but is it a great idea? No, not always. Having an ego problem could turn a lot of people off.

It’s understandable that you are talented and you’ve had successes in your music careers, but there’s no need to jerk yourselves off about it publicly. How about being humble? If you want to be taken seriously as a musician and want people to like you more then being “humble” is key. You don’t always have to think you’re talented and great all the time. If you believe that you suck and not all that great musically then you shouldn’t be afraid to say it ’cause most people won’t care anyways. With my own music, I know I’m not all that great musically, I just play music ’cause that’s what I do and I just do my thing.

Knowing how to be humble, just don’t act like you’re bigger and better than everyone else ’cause I hate when musicians have that attitude and they are everywhere even local musicians have that problem. There’s no need to be full of yourselves.

Admittedly, I can have an ego too sometimes but we all do in some form of another. It’s actually good to have an ego sometimes, it’s just that there are certain ways to go about it. There’s nothing wrong with liking your own music and being proud of what you do, but what you don’t want to do is go around acting like you’re a music god or something.

You should go to youtube and watch Jimi Hendrix’s interview on a talk show. If you want a perfect example of a humble musician then there you go. Jimi once said: “I don’t consider myself to be the best… I don’t like compliments, they distract me”.

There’s something for you to think about.

I like Kanye even more now for deciding to change for the better. His new album, “Ye”, is fucking great, btw. I’m planning to buy my own copy soon.

Happy birthday, President Trump…

I don’t feel ashamed at all for being a Trump supporter. In fact, I think it was one of the best decisions of my life to support him for the 2016 elections. We haven’t had great candidates in elections in decades and finally we get a good one. There was just no way in hell that I was going to support Hillary. Couldn’t do it. Yes, people gave me shit for supporting Trump but I don’t let that crap bother me. If people are ripping you for supporting Trump then chances are they supported Obama over the years. They were die-hard Obama fanatics.

So far, I’m very impressed with President Trump in office. No regrets voting for him and no regrets supporting him at all. I feel very proud. While it is disappointing that Trump didn’t build the wall yet and Hillary is not in jail yet, who cares. What matters most is that Trump really is making America great again. If you believe that Trump hasn’t been delivering promises then you really are brainwashed by Fake News and liberal social networking. Trump’s been delivering most every promise so far with the exception of the Wall and locking up Hillary but other than that, Trump is doing a great job so far and I’ll gladly vote for him again in 2020. Trump is going to win the re-election no matter what you think. After the successful Trump and Kim Jong-un meeting, I think he’s definitely going to win the re-election.

I know the IG report has been released today on Trump’s birthday and I’m going to get around to reading reports about it tonight. I don’t feel like reading a 500 page pdf documents so I’m just going to read articles online about it instead.

Happy birthday, Mr. President and I’m sure he’s having a good day today despite getting sued by the NY AG over the Trump foundation. I respect the man so much ’cause people beat him up verbally everyday and he just keeps working. The man is the master.

President Trump responds to tough guy Robert Deniro!!! Hilarious!!!

At the Tony Awards over the weekend, Robert De Niro had some things to say about Trump while introducing Bruce Springsteen as a performer. De Niro happened to go off-script and go on a rant about Trump. De Niro dropping F bombs saying, “Fuck Trump” which seems to be a favorite liberal saying. Well De Niro said that on live TV, he said “Fuck Trump” twice actually.

Of course, this wasn’t the first time that De Niro publicly attacked Trump remember in 2016 De Niro did a video saying that he would like to punch Trump in the face.

Well today, Pres. Trump himself responded to De Niro on twitter. Once again, Trump saying the same things like we’ve all been thinking. You see Robert De Niro may have played a lot of tough guy roles in the movies but that’s how he thinks of himself in real life. De Niro really does think he’s a tough guy. No doubt De Niro is a big narcissist and egomaniac. Notice that De Niro only picks movie roles that makes him look tough. Look at all these tough guy roles he did over the years: “Raging Bull”, “Taxi Driver”, “The Godfather Part II”, “Goodfellas”, “Cape Fear”, “Midnight Run”, “The Untouchables”, “The Deer Hunter”, etc. Doing movie roles that only feeds his ego.

If De Niro and Trump did a celebrity boxing match together who would win? I’m rooting for Trump, of course.

Look at Trump in this video when he appeared in WWE. Yeah, WWE is fake but you can’t deny that Trump is tough with those punches. You better watch it, De Niro. Don’t mess with Trump.

I think De Niro is a great actor and I respect him but his politics do suck, though. I wish he and the rest of Hollywood would shut up about politics. It’s a shame. I love movies and there are so many talented people in Hollywood but their politics are alienating movie fans and they aren’t realizing it yet.

Saw the new horror film “Hereditary” today and it was fuckin’ amazing! Go see it please!!!

Today, I decided to go to the mall to check out the movie, “Hereditary”. The new horror film that just came out that’s been getting a lot of buzz and a lot of positive reviews all over. Usually when a movie gets all kinds of positive reviews everywhere, it turns out garbage once I actually see it for myself. That’s not the case with this movie. I saw “Hereditary” today and it was fucking amazing! Best horror film I’ve seen in years.

When it comes to horror films, I’ve always been a long time horror fan. Have been a horror fan ever since I was a little kid. I spent my entire life watching. I don’t get scared watching horror films too much since I’m so used to it but I think “Hereditary” finally did it to me, though. “Hereditary” really was terrifying.

Man, the writer and director of this film Ari Aster definitely knows his shit when it comes to horror. I think he did a good job with both the writing and directing. The script was intelligently written. I love the direction and cinematography too. The film was well-acted by the cast.

This is a film about a family’s ancestry or something like that. A supernatural film so you can betcha there will be ghosts in this movie and stuff. If you like ghost movies like “Paranormal Activity” and “The Conjuring”, I think you will enjoy “Hereditary” even more.

I would recommend you all go see this movie whether you’re a horror fan or not. Finally, a horror film with a real plot and intelligent storytelling. When it comes to newer horror films, we’ve been getting mostly silly slashers and found footage horror films but finally we get a true horror film here. “Hereditary” is definitely the perfect film to watch with all the lights off.

There’s a lot of ghost movies over the years and I would say “Hereditary” is the best ghost movie since the original “Amityville Horror” released in 1979. “Hereditary” really was that damn good and I’m definitely getting the BluRay when it comes out.

Experimented with a little hypertrophy lifting at the gym today for chest and it felt damn good!

I went to the gym earlier today after I got home from the mall. Today was chest day at the gym and since I read some stuff about hypertrophy lifting, I decided to experiment with it a little today. So as soon as I entered the gym, I went to the dumbbell rack… trying to decide an amount of weight that would be the heaviest for me. So I decided to try 60 lbs. dumbbells for chest press on the floor. Welp, looks like I couldn’t lift 60 lbs. dumbbells at all even if I tried so I immediately stopped… put the 60 lbs. dumbbells back on the shelf and went 5 lbs. lower. So I tried 55 lbs. dumbbells and that was it for me; however, I only could lift 8 reps each which is perfect for hypertrophy. Remember, hypertrophy lifting needs to be around 8 – 12 reps when you can’t do the last rep… meaning “lifting to failure”. I could only do 8 reps so I lifted 8 reps for 4 sets each with a minute resting in between so that was perfect.

I did hypertrophy lifting for dumbbell flies and dumbbell incline press too. For dumbbell flies, it was 30 lbs. for me and I could only do 10 reps for each set with that one. For dumbbell incline presses, it was 40 lbs. dumbbells and I only do 12 reps. for that one which is good. So next time I do chest day next week, I’m going to do a little heavier on dumbbell flies and incline presses.

Most bodybuilders recommend hypertrophy lifting as it is the best mass building. However, you don’t want to do hypertrophy lifting all the time as it is good to mix it up. I think I’m going to do hypertrophy lifting for a pretty long while.

From what I read about sets and reps…

Light weights and high reps is for endurance

Heavier weights ’til failure between the 8 – 12 rep range is for hypertrophy

Lifting super heavy and low rep range between 1 – 5 is for strength.

That’s what I read about through various bodybuilding articles I’ve read online.

Hypertrophy lifting is the most popular though and I see a lot of guys at my local gym workout that way. Lift the last rep when they can’t do that anymore, I guess that’s why they do a lot of weight dropping.

I really would like to improve my chest greatly and I think I just found a way. I am feeling results in the chest finally ’cause I’m feeling the pecs getting bigger.

A lot of people think muscle building is a slow process which is kind of true. You can build BIG muscle quickly, as long as you work out hard, lift heavy, eat a lot. It doesn’t really take 10 or 20 years to get ripped. You can get ripped in a year or two if you do it right.

Elder Scrolls VI is confirmed by Bethesda studios… I love these games!!!

This is great news. The latest Elder Scrolls game which was “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” was released back in 2011. It’s been a long while since a new Elder Scrolls game has been out. When “Skyrim” came out, it became a massive hit. The game still is a massive hit. “Skyrim” is still a pretty big seller which was why the game was re-released for the PS4, XBox One and Nintendo Switch later on.

I can see why “Skyrim” was a massive hit and continues to be because it’s a pretty big game, that’s why. It’s a pretty big open world game with lots of quests. A lot of quests are never ending though. You can play this game for hours and hours. There’s no shortage of gameplay ’cause of the radiant quests. It is still possible to beat the game, though… just gotta beat all the main ones.

While I’m a pretty big Elder Scrolls fan, I’m still playing “Skyrim”… the SE version on the PS4. I would like to play the older Elder Scrolls games but the PSN store doesn’t have ’em but Steam has Elder Scrolls III and IV.

I like Elder Scrolls ’cause I do love playing epic fantasy RPG games. No doubt, Elder Scrolls is the best RPG franchise for sure. It is the most addicting game ever as I can’t stop playing. I’m trying to finish up all the main quests still.

I love video gaming. It’s another hobby of mine and what I do to escape from everything. Can’t wait to see the full trailer of this game which I’m sure Bethesda will release pretty soon.

Figured out why I haven’t been getting muscle gains in some parts… I need to do hypertrophy lifting and I will from this point forward…

I think I know why I have been struggling to get gains on some parts. It’s because I haven’t really been doing hypertrophy lifting on some stuff. Ya know, choosing a weight where you can lift to failure between the 8 – 12 rep range. When you can’t lift the last rep, it needs to be in 8 – 12 rep range only. That’s hypertrophy lifting after reading about it some. Honestly, I have been doing that with some body parts but mostly I just lift what I can handle. If all you’re doing is lifting what you can handle for 12 straight reps, that’s not really a true lift really. The last rep needs to be anywhere from 8 – 12. I really need to do this more often.

My legs look good, my arms look good but pretty much the only thing I’m struggling on is the chest. I have figured out what was wrong. I need to lift a little heavier until I can go to failure between the 8 – 12 rep range. It needs be around there in order to get gains. I’m going to lift this way with all body parts from now on… lift hypertrophy style. I’ll always try to figure out ways to get gains on all body parts.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with lifting full 12 reps easily without struggling ’cause that also helps build muscle no matter what you think of it. If you want to get even more gains, gotta do hypertrophy. I will from this point on.

I’ve been lifting weights for 10 years or a little over now and I never thought of lifting this way. I want to have a hot and sexy body and not afraid to say that. I feel I already do and looking good now but could use more improvements, though.

If I want to look like those guys you see in wrestling and the action movies, hypertrophy lifting seems to be the way to go. Yeah, yeah, yeah, some of you will think steroids did it to those guys but I disagree. It is possible to get that look naturally. It can be done.
