Saturday 9: Too Close


Saturday 9: Too Close

  1. This song is about a friendship that turned romantic ... and it doesn't end happily. Have you ever crossed that line with a friend? If so, how did it work out? -- It hasn’t turned out well… it got awkward and then lost contact with one. In another it became all about the sex and we rarely did the things we used to enjoy as friends.
  2. hueyWhen he was a kid, this week's singer, Alex Clare, listened to his dad's Stevie Wonder records. When you were in 7th/8th grades, what music were you into?-- In 1982-83 I was very much into the music of John Mellencamp, The Cars, Human League, Huey Lewis and REO Speedwagon.
  3. "Too Close" has been featured on the TV show, The Vampire Diaries. Do you enjoy shows/books/movies about the supernatural?-- I’ve enjoyed Anne Rice’s Vampire novels, but generally I like good old fashioned cops & robber murder mysteries.
  4. Some of Alex Clare's tour dates were sponsored by Bud Light. Do you like beer?-- I am proud to say that mass market piss “beer” hasn’t passed my lips since 2007. deschutes5Coming from the great northwest, I enjoy GOOD beer… Deschutes is my favorite.
  5. Mr. Clare trained to be a chef, just in case the music thing didn't work out. Are you a good cook? -- I’m told I’m a damn fine cook.
  6. Crazy Sam (the mistress of this meme) is forever running out of mayo because she slathers it on her sandwiches. What is currently on your grocery list?-- Oatmeal, Milk, Cheese, Bananas, Cat Food, Vodka, Gin and Toilet Paper.
  7. Where are you most likely to find spare change -- between the sofa cushions, in your jeans as you toss them into the washer, or under the floor mat of your catattoo_fund_jar_candy_dish-rbf2cd52130ee4bd8a48627c219f718ce_2ih7l_8byvr_512r?-- All the above. I even pick change up off the ground. Every penny counts. I put all non-quarter change into a Tattoo Fund Jar. The quarters go into the laundry jar.
  8. How did you spend your Friday night -- working late, hanging out with friends, or just enjoying a quiet night at home?-- Home watching the TV… as per usual.
  9. Do you use Pinterest?-- I have. But I only have time for so many addictive websites in my life. So I don’t currently use that service.

Checking in

Sean has written asking how I was doing, I must admit that it has been a while…

I have intentions to post frequently about life, and especially progress in my weight loss journey. In short, I’m doing fine. The surgery has completely healed. I am still learning there are things I cannot eat.

I have attained a milestone in my journey…. drum roll, Anton… I’ve lost 100 lbs!

I am now going to do something I’ve never done… publicly reveal my shirtless self. Make sure you aren’t eating or drinking…. (yes, I know you can see it already).

This was taken in October 2013, weighing 405 lbs.

And here is today… 305 lbs.

The more you know…

Parts of this are laughable…

Your result for The Gay Cliques Test...

The Daddy

35% Twink, 64% Bear, 70% Daddy, 47% Cub, 51% Otter, 50% Pup, 62% Muscle_Pup, 62% Wolf and 43% Gym_Bunny!

IMG_20140217_104736_647

You are The Daddy. You are perfect husband material. Based on your hair color, there is a possibility you fit into the sub-catagory Silver Fox. Normally tall with average to little hairiness, your dominance and manly charm rub off onto those around you. You frequently dominate the gay world with your charming personality. Your looks only get better with age, and you try to attract the attention of younger boys who have daddy-issues. When you were younger you were probably a Pup, Otter, or Wolf. You are attracted to Wolfs, Twinks, Otters, and Pups. Normally not other Daddies however, as they are you competition.

TMI Thursday: The Games

Sean at Just a Jeep Guy started it, now all the cool kids are doing it.canadianolympic

THE WINTER OLYMPIC GAMES

In general (we'll get to the politics in a few) do you watch the Winter Olympics?

I haven’t been watching as avidly as I usually do, but yes I have been watching a couple events from the Sochi Games. I enjoy snowboarding, slope style (the new event at this games), bobsledding, speed skating and hockey.

Winter or Summer? tumblr_m7yuskAwMR1r7r4dto1_500

While the Winter Games has a prevalence of lycra-clad mens… the Summer Games are preferable due the total lack of clothing on divers, swimmers, gymnasts wresters and jostling packages of track & field participants.  Nothing can beat the beauty of a gymnasts’ body --->

What are your favorite winter events? Do you follow any of them outside the game?

I watch the snowboarding events when they’re televised and we have a pretty good minor league hockey team locally. I don’t think they televise bobsled or speedskating much in the off years.

Which sport needs to stay and which one needs to go?

Hell… I don’t care. I like the ones I like, I don’t pay much mind to the ones I don’t. Just like in the society at-large, everyone should like what they like and do what brings them joy (so long as it doesn’t deprive others of the same right). If I don’t like an event, I’m sure there is someone who does. Who am I to deprive people of their love of curling, or the biathalon?

Which is the weirdest sport? gay-spandex-ass-bulge-olympic-athlete-glutes

Most of them are weird in one way or another. It seems to me that many recreational activities make you wonder what was going through the mind of the first person who slid head first down an ice chute at 90 miles an hour (skeleton) or thought that cross country skiiing five miles before stopping to target shoot a dime, then setting off on another five mile ski (biathalon). Curling is pretty weird… shuffleboard on ice? Dat ass --->

What is your POV on boycotting The Olympics by countries and or athletes?

I believe the Olympics are the pinnacle of achievement for athletes in many sports that are only given much attention every four years. I think that using their hopes and dreams as a political bargaining chip is evil. That being said, the IOC screwed up big time putting the Games in Sochi. Obviously they were paid handsomely by the Russians to make the choice.

Are you boycotting NBC or any Olympic sponsors? tumblr_mudbm1gDzI1r0yl8do1_500-1

I don’t know what I think of ‘boycotting’. On one hand I know that corporations are running our lives. Their power and financial resources are so far out of reach of the common man that they cant be touched. Regulations can be changed at the government level, but won’t because the corporations own governments. I’m not “boycotting” the games, because I celebrate the achievements of the athletes. I’m not “boycotting” sponsors… I don’t eat at McDonald’s or drink Coke anyway. My complaint is the same in Sochi as it was in London; NBC could do a better job with camera angles and graphic placement. Its like they intentionally block the good shots. One of the hockey players --->

Do you think boycotts are effective?

Massive public boycotts? Yes, they are effective. The sheer size of the corporate sponsors demand a massive international boycott for months in order for ohno1them to notice. A few thousand people not buying Coke for a week in February isn’t going to mean a thing to the bottom line.

If you were an athlete what would you do?

Bobsled… see the Canadian team at the top… RAWR!

I shall leave you with a picture of Gold medal winning Olympian Apolo Ohno’s legs. --->
