Music I’ve been listening to lately…

While I mostly like to listen to old music from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and even the early 90’s… I would do my very best to try to catch up on some new music that is out. It is hard for me to find new music nowadays that is good ’cause most of the new music in the industry is pretty bad.

A lot of times I would buy new albums from my favorite bands and artists. Sometimes I would discover new bands & artists that I never heard before at all that I really like a lot. For example, Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown is a fucking awesome band. They are a rock band that has a classic rock vibe… check out their new album “Truth and Lies”… it’s pretty great shit. Great guitar playing and great songwriting.

I’ve also discovered a metal band that I really like called Born of Osiris. They are a heavy band with screaming and growling but they are actually listenable, though. I’m not into the screaming and growling that much in metal but I can listen to Born of Osiris, though. That record they put out this year “The Simulation” is pretty fucking awesome. Get it if you like metal. I can’t stop listening to that one.

The new Abbath album “Outsrider” is a metal album that I really like and Abbath is a really good band. Love those guys a lot.

Other artists that I discovered are “The Highwomen” which is an all girl group of country singers. They are called a supergroup with 4 iconic singers. I’ve never heard of them ’cause I don’t listen to country too much but this is an awesome album, though. It’s an album that actually sounds like true country not that pop country junk you’ve been hearing nowadays. The Highwomen are a great group and you should still check out that album.

There’s a female blues artist that I recently discovered by the name of Samantha Fish who just put out a killer album called, “Kill or Be Kind”. That album is fucking HOT, trust me. If you want blues rock music that’ll get you to stomp your feet and make you bop your head up and down to, this album will do that. Samantha is a great guitarist and a great singer. This is my favorite new album this year. I’m gonna be listening to this one a lot, I think. I think I’m gonna be buying more Samantha Smith albums ’cause I’m in love with her music and she’s my favorite artist right now.

I’ve also recently discovered a new female artist I never heard before by the name of Weyes Blood. Oh my god, her latest album, “Titanic Rising” is absolutely mind blowing. This album came out this year but it’s got a 70’s vibe to it. The album has a lot of Beatles and George Harrison influence on it, that’s probably why I like it so much… plus Weyes has a singing voice that will send chills down your spine. This is an amazing record and I’d recommend this one to you too. I’ve also been listening to this one a lot. Powerful songwriting. Weyes Blood is an actual artist name, not a band name. She’s very good, though and I’m glad I got this album. I’d love to buy the rest of her albums too.

I like to listen to music at the gym a lot and these are the albums I’ve been listening to.

Adoptive family of Jaliek Rainwalker… they continue to act like their missing kid never existed… why???

Adoptive Mom of Jaliek Rainwalker posts family photo publicly on social media but she doesn’t mention Jaliek’s name at all. There is no, “We love you Jaliek… we miss you and we wish you were here with us” at all.

Social media activity with adopted family online but they don’t bring up his name at all. None of them asks for the public’s help to find that kid. The other kids are all on social media too… they are full grown adults but they don’t ask for the public’s help to find Jaliek either.

Why? Is it the adoptive parents way of not getting caught? They say they have nothing to hide? Hmmmmm????

This family can go on with their lives and not have a care for Jaliek all they want to but the rest of us will never forget Jaliek. If they won’t find him then we will somehow and someway, justice is coming.

When a family has a missing kid, you don’t move out of state and go on smiling. Most parents in the United States who has a missing kid would do everything under the sun to find him/her but you don’t see this family doing that.

This family cares about Jaliek???? Please… not from what I’m seeing.

Dee Snider calls out the NFL for ignoring “metal” again for Superbowl Halftime… finally someone who gets it!!!!

So Jennifer Lopez and Shakira both has been announced for this year’s Superbowl halftime performance. Really? Another pop artist, hey? The NFL used to be good at having rock n’ roll bands performing the Superbowl in the past but a lot lately, they’ve been having pop artists take the Superbowl halftime slot like Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, etc.

Yeah, I know… the metal genre has been ignored a lot by the industry. The metal genre is slowly picking up at the Grammy Awards and the genre is picking up at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame very slowly as well. The Superbowl? Metal bands aren’t getting shit and Dee Snider is not happy about it.

https://ultimateclassicrock.com/dee-snider-super-bowl-halftime-show/?fbclid=IwAR2Cdn9ylLo51EiirnhboQX-U5m6Cg1XkYVM6FlmxdZrrWD-Z2jvg1OdOA8

He’s not wrong at all ’cause there are plenty of iconic metal bands that would be great for Superbowl halftime shows. Bands that totally deserve to play Halftime are Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Van Halen and KISS I can name that would be great for Superbowl Halftime.

If there is any band that deserves to play Halftime more than all the others, I would say Metallica for sure. That band has accomplished so much in the industry… they accomplished everything except for one thing they never did yet… play Superbowl Halftime.

Why does metal keep getting ignored by the NFL? Are they afraid of controversy? Probably. Metal is always getting judged and criticized of being too dark and satanic and all that stuff… maybe that’s what they’re afraid of. Things like that, ya know?

Why does the NFL keep having pop artists every year? I think they are deluded into them thinking that’s what everyone wants to see when it’s not true. We just want the NFL to mix it up and have something for everyone.

Even though metal is still pretty big, the industry continues to ignore metal for whatever reason. Everyone is still so hung up on pop and country ’cause those two genres are still dominating. Why? It’s because pop and country are huge money makers.

I used to be excited for Superbowl halftime performances but nowadays I don’t care anymore. Sad. I haven’t been watching the Superbowl for the last few years anyways due to all the kneeling and shit. Football is boring anyways, I don’t watch it.

If Metallica ever got the opportunity to perform the Superbowl Halftime, I would watch of course and never say never of them getting that.

Sylvester Stallone responds to negative reviews of “Rambo: Last Blood” in humorous way…. check it out!!! It’s pretty funny!

Like I said, Sly has a good sense of humor and it really shows in this video clip on his instagram page above.

In the video clip above, it seems that Sly Stallone is calling out all the critics giving the movie bad reviews. In this video, you see a few British film goers complaining about the disturbing violence in the movie. It seems that this video was in direct response to author David Morrell who complained about the film… David Morrell is the original creator of Rambo and it turned out he didn’t like “Last Blood” at all.

I agree with the video above, though… you either can handle Rambo or you can’t. Rambo isn’t for everyone. People have been complaining about the gritty and disturbing violence in Rambo movies for a long time so this is nothing new. It’s just that the critics are worse with “Last Blood”.

I love movies with disturbing, gritty and graphic violence… this stuff doesn’t bother me at all. I’ve been watching horror films and violent action films for years so I’m pretty much used to it all, ya know? Even though “Last Blood” is considered an action movie, at the same time, it can be a considered a horror film too ’cause Rambo is actually pretty scary in this one and there is plenty of gore too.

If you think the violence in the latest Rambo was bad, keep in mind Sly still has “Expendables 4” being planned still so you haven’t seen nothing yet. I remember Sly saying that “Expendables 4” will bring back the gritty violence and gore but it will be worse than the previous films.

This just goes to show that Sly is the master at action movies. The man really is truly a genius… he knows how to grabs people attention whether it’s positive or negative.

The gritty violence and gore in Sly’s action movies were meant to be entertaining. Why go see an action film and not see that stuff? This is how old-school action movies used to be in the 80’s and Sly was taking “Last Blood” to its old roots. Nobody wants to go see a movie with friendly violence with less blood and less gore… go see “Expendables 3” if you want that. Without blood and gritty violence, action movies would be boring. Sly admitted that a PG-13 “Expendables 3” was a mistake and he’s going back to the dark violence in “EX4”. Once Sly does that, people will be complaining again, I’m sure.

I love Sly’s violent action movies… that’s why I watch ’em and it’s why I’m a fan of him to begin with. There’s so many action movie tough guys out there like Arnold, Jean Claude, Chuck Norris, Vin Diesel, etc…. those guys play the tough guy role pretty well but Sly is the best at it. Sly’s look… the eyes, the mouth and his speaking voice… that’s what makes him a real tough guy in action movies and that’s why fans like him. Even at 70 years old, Sly still plays the tough guy role extremely well. No one else can do it better than he can.

If you’re scared of Sly’s action movies then he’s doing his job… this is what he’s supposed to do.

Go see “Rambo: Last Blood” before it stops playing.

If black lives mattered to the adoptive mother of Jaliek Rainwalker then why isn’t she trying to find him???

Don Lehman’s newest article about the Jaliek Rainwalker case comes out and the case explodes on the internet even more, yet you still see Jaliek’s adopted Mom (not naming names but you’ll figure it out) still being active on social media. The case is becoming more and more well known online… everyone is talking about it yet the adoptive mother still hangs online. Her name is in the news pretty clearly you would think she would lay low and stay in hiding but no, there’s still some online activity with her.

She’s on social media, posting her left-wing bullcrap and appearing to be a supporter of “black lives matter”. If she’s a big advocate on “black lives matter” as she appears to be then why isn’t she out there trying to find her adopted son, Jaliek like the rest of us are trying to do?

This is a woman who has online social media presence and you don’t see her bringing up Jaliek once. She’s doesn’t even ask for the public’s help to try and find him. The lawyer claims in the press that she and the adopted father are trying all they can to find him but they’re all lies. The adopted family just continues to live their lives out there… all smiling… going on a lot of vacations and big trips… they go visit their other kids and all that stuff.

Why don’t she help find Jaliek like the rest of us? Nope. Instead, this family moved to Vermont and lawyered up. They are very evasive and uncooperative in this investigation… they refuse to talk with anyone looking for Jaliek. They don’t bring up his name and try to act like that he never existed in their family.

A real mother would have left her husband if she found out that he is the “person of interest” in a missing person’s case but instead she continues to stay by his side and is very protective of him.

They keep saying Jaliek will turn up and they claim he’s still alive. They’ve been asked before to prove that he’s still alive… well it’s almost 12 years of his disappearance… they still haven’t proved that he’s still alive and he hasn’t turned up yet.

If black lives mattered to her then why did she allow Jaliek to go missing? Why isn’t she doing everything under the sun to help find her adopted son? Jaliek was a biracial kid, meaning that he’s half black and half white.

Almost 12 years and still no Jaliek but we will find him somehow and justice is coming after reading that new article by Don Lehman. This family can keep smiling and continue to act like Jaliek never existed in their lives but the investigation is still ongoing. This family wants Jaliek to be forgotten but we will never forget him. I won’t forget him and never will. I really care about this kid even though I never knew him and it’s a sad case. I’m not trying to be a hero, I want answers like most people. If they aren’t talking then the truth will come out on its own… just watch.

Why are movie critics always bashing Sly’s movies? This has been going on for years, it’s nothing new!!!

I have followed Sylvester Stallone’s movie career for many years now. You’re disappointed that movie critics are ripping apart “Rambo: Last Blood”? You see, this is nothing new. Movie critics has been bashing Sly’s movies for a few decades now. I remember they bashed movies like Rambo II and III… they’ve also bashed “Cliffhanger”, “The Specialist”, “Assassins”, “Cobra”, “Judge Dredd”,  “Demolition Man”, “Driven”, etc.

Yeah, I am a huge Sly fan but that doesn’t mean that every movie he did was really good. I’ll admit that he made some pretty big stinkers and even Sly himself admits he didn’t like some of his own movies that he starred in most notably movies like “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot” and “Rocky V”. Sly also hated the second “Escape Plan” movie. He’s not afraid to be honest with his own movies.

I never understood why Sly has to be an easy target by movie critics and some movie fans. What is it about the guy they hate so much? Is it because of his look/image? They don’t like the way his eyes and lips are? They don’t like the way he talks and they think he’s a bad actor ’cause of it? Sly’s talent has always been bashed for years and as you can see, it still goes on.

That’s okay ’cause no matter what you think of the man… love him or hate him, he is a Hollywood Icon and legend. He also has a very HUGE following of loyal fans all over the world. That’s a big part of why he started his own clothing line… https://slystalloneshop.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwt5zsBRD8ARIsAJfI4BiHVX2i-TSE3JoXcsXX9-M9X40eH99ihNgeyFr0emCOe4j1i_LZvocaApR9EALw_wcB

… Sly’s online clothing store is just his way of giving back to the fans for supporting his career over the years. It isn’t about the money at all when it comes to Sly’s online store. I only own one-shirt from that store which is the Rocky tank but I plan on ordering more stuff from Sly’s store soon.

Even though Sly keeps getting mixed reviews to all of his movies, I just respect the hell out of him for keeping on going in his career. The man really loves making movies and you can tell he does. I think it’s pretty clear that he does make movies for the fans. He’s pretty good with his fanbase.

A lot of people wanna bash Sly’s acting and make fun of him for his old age but Arnold’s not the greatest actor in the world and he’s a 70 year old guy too but you don’t see anybody criticizing Arnold. It’s always Sly who is the easy target.

Yeah, there are movies where Sly can really show his true acting talent… I always knew he was a good actor… I just wish people would give him a chance. In my opinion, I think he delivered the best performances in the first “Rocky”, “Cop Land” and the first “Creed” movie.

The Sly bashing is getting old and tiresome but I will always support the man. Yes, people make fun of me for being such a Stallone fanatic but I don’t care.

I think some people hate Sly ’cause he’s a good guy. He really is… yet most movie fans are supporting leftist assholes like Robert Deniro, Sean Penn, Alec Baldwin and George Clooney. Sly has always been an “apolitical” guy and he continues to stay that way… maybe that’s another reason they hate him. Most celebrities are horrible but Sly is cool, though. There’s only very few good celebrities in Hollywood left and Sly is one of them.

I have no problem of the way Sly’s eyes are, his lips and his speaking voice. I like the way he speaks and Sly is a very intelligent and honest man, though. He’s also very funny and has a good sense of humor too. There’s no ego in this man at all as he is a very humble guy and doesn’t take himself so serious. What’s wrong with that?

Sly rules. I respect the man so much and I hope to meet him in person someday still. On my bucket list!

Watch me smash a 300 lb. deadlift which I did earlier today…

Here I am smashing an easy 300 lb. heavy single to end my deadlift session with earlier today. After nursing a minor upper left leg injury for a few weeks, I felt I was good enough to get back into some serious lower body work and that’s what I did this weekend.

Since a few weeks ago, I was able to smash a 290 lb. deadlift heavy single, I predicted that I would be able to smash a 300 lb. deadlift that I was trying to get back to. Here I am doing just that. Me smashing a 300 lb. deadlift single. Keep in mind, though, this is not a new P.R. Just a heavy single.

After this, I realized that I never plateaued at all in my deadlifting. It was my left leg injury that was holding me back like I was saying. Since I’m able to do 300 lb. singles for deadlift now, I could probably pull even more than 300. In the video above, that lift was a little shaky but I was able to lock it out pretty smoothly anyways.

Now my legs are wicked ass sore. My legs aren’t too friendly with walking up and down the stairs now, lmao… so I’m gonna be like this for a few days. My legs are sore ’cause I settled down on the lower body lifting for a few weeks but I feel real good. It’s just that deadlifting is so addicting and it’s so hard to stay away from, I can’t help myself. LMAO!!!

I think the left leg injury came back a little bit but not so bad. I’ll get right back to settling down on the lower body lifting so it can go away for good ’cause I’m sick of feeling it. I thought my leg was good enough to get back into heavy lifting again but jumped into it too soon again. I was proud of today’s lift, though. Now I’m on the road to 400 lb. deadlift and I think I can get there in 2020.

I love powerlifting.
