This Blog and other miscellany:

I read a few Blogs everyday. they are posted as “The Best Poker Blogs” I’m positive that I will add more in the future but the current Blogs have something extra…I can relate to them in a big way. I have no idea why I do this (Blog) and I have no idea why anybody else would want to read it but therein lies the beauty of the internet. Post it and they will come! Well..Uh…maybe not but who gives a flying fuck. (BTW I don’t personally know any of the following people..but they impress me in different ways).

GuinnessandPoker – Iggy and his Uber-Posts are a must read…a propensity for Internet Poker and all things weird and humorous.
Tao Of Poker - The prolific writer that is Dr. Pauly…..Carving out a new profession and having fun doing it! (Hunter S. Thompson would be proud).
Lasvegasvegas – The Poker Prof …If there was ever a blog that makes you feel as if you were actually in Vegas. This is it!
ISDN – Chilly…I can relate to his a new parent kind of way. He is one funny bastard too.
Bill’s Poker Blog - Bill Rini…His analytical yet humorous way of looking at Poker is better than most.
DeadMoney=SirAlCantHang – wrapped up in one fucked up package…Hilarious!

Well that about covers the blogs that I read I said before I’m sure there are a thousand others that I will eventually get to but I can’t read ‘em all…after all I am writing this at work and I am severely unproductive on this Friday afternoon.

On another subject…I was rifling through my old CD’s and decided to pack up the CD carrier for my Hellish commute to work. It’s actually hellish to and from work so I need some music (although lately I’ve been addicted to Sports-talk/political-talk radio lately). I have been know to like all forms of music although my favorite “type” of music is guitar-based. The only phase of music I didn’t go through is the whole pop/dance/trance crap that just turns me off. So before I go on a tangent I can’t get off of I found “Live at Leeds”-Remastered by ‘The Who’. I played it in the car and had my latest musical religious experience….I challenge anybody to come up with a better "Live" recording that captures a band in its prime. I’m not kidding…especially when tracks 10 and 11 are played at a loud volume. “Amazing Journey/Sparks” is a musical journey that only Keith Moon (the best natural drummer ever), Pete Townsend (one of the greatest rhythm-guitarist and lyric writers in rock history), John Entwistle (the best rock bassist ever), and Roger Daltrey (One of Rocks greatest singers) could take you on. I “Can’t explain” (haha)…how good it actually is but it has got to be the perfect arena rock recording. They also breathe life into their poppy-er recordings like “Happy Jack” and “Substitute”.

I also have to mention Randy Rhoads on “Blizzard of Ozz” and “Diary Of a Madman”..Two of the greatest guitar solos of all time were recorded by him in my opinion. “Over the Mountain” sounds like an electric orgasm if there ever was one. It’s so manic yet controlled I can’t believe it whenever I hear it. The other solo is on “Revelation Mother Earth”…this solo is so dramatic and tells a story within the least that’s what I hear when I listen to it. They both should have been extremely high on this list of the 100 greatest guitar solos…

I just realized that I’ve been reading/posting poker blogs for a couple of hours..WTF….see you on EmpirePoker !
