Think Snow My Friends - Think Snow

I'm Glad You're Home          Now Did You Really Miss Me              I Guess You Did By The Look In Your Eye          Well Lay Back And Relax            While I Put Away The Dishes        Then You And Me Can Rock A Bell              You Can Ring My Bell, Ring My Bell               My Bell 


Anita Bell

Songs Of Love 1979

CRAIGSLIST:

WoW! WoW Is What Comes To Mind. Like wow. My roommate boogied east and I took a leap of faith with our yahoo community wishing pool. I posted a very elementary room for rent posting without doxxing myself. I finished off the post with these four questions and to please add 1234 as the subject/title line. 1) male or female 2) employed 3) what type of automobile 4) your vision 

The amount of porn was ridiculous and easy to delete without opening because the 1234 was left out. One gal that managed to answer two of my questions turns out to be Queen Wack-A-Doodle. I googled her name to find this information below. Basically, those that added 1234 were all over the board. One poor gal literally wrote ' I don't know what a vision is ' and the majority of the applicants responded with there actual 20 - 20 vision. Classic  

One guy sounded rather attractive on paper so I fired off some photos of the kitchen, communal living space, and his potential room. We agreed on a date and time and of course he floundered around like most people I interact with these days. He finally arrives and within about three minutes I had these flashing images of driving my calcaneus bone clean through his mouth and out the back of his skull. He was this homunculus Jack A$$ that talked in circles and carried the educational background of a middle schooler at best. Dick Weed 

Once he drove away, I burned one of my larger sage sticks I fabricated while traveling around Prescott and walked the house burning away those lower vibrational quality vibes. You Go Now You Troglodyte 

RADIO RAPTURE:

LINK HERE - just hit the play icon next to the date 02/10/22  > about 26 seconds of the previous jazz show > the KAFM Entertainment Calendar with that utterly useless E.D.  >  then an instrumental of John Lennon's Imagine. I highly recommend you stream the show while you continue to read along. 

 

Over the moon with this show!! Totally on my game, perfect setlist of popular cover tunes, and matched the music with mixed over precisely timed soundbites. This broadcasted Radio Rapture featured all recognizable cover tunes and this prime time slot is ideal for maximum listening audiences commenting home. I opened the show at 4pm with a cover of John Lennon's Imagine by Justin Johnson and then a sexy rendition of BoB Marley's Sun Is Shining by The Main Squeeze. 

From there, offered up cover tunes of Fly Me To The Moon, Feel Like Making Love, Jolene, Blue Bayou, Sound Of Silence, Stand Back, Fantasy, Boogie Ooogie Oogie, Slippery People, Once In A Lifetime, Killing Me Softly, Stop Dragging My Heart Around, And Somebody That I Used To Know. 

Soundbites I laid over the top consisted of Homer Simpson, Bubba J, And Johnny Fever from WKRP in Cincinnati. The amount of phone calls and texts were rewarding, satisfying, and those responses were effectively rejuvenating. Without tooting my own horn, one of my better shows to date. And the best part of the whole evening, the commercial computer failed so NO Commercials for the last hour plus. Just me showcasing cover tunes and none of those same old dry poorly produced ads. YES - TWO THUMBS UP - YES 

BODYWORK: 

One of my clearest boundaries that I proudly honor is NEVER dating a client or even going out on a date. I am diligently scrupulous as a male massage therapist, radically different rules as a male, never ever would I want the reputation of dating his clients and then have "something" happen and a community member spout off , " He has dated a batch of clientele so that incident probably happened." It is a safety issue, a solid boundary issue, and a higher moral issue. 

So this married woman that I have worked with for a few years now crossed that line. One, I was way bummed she attempted to behave in this manor and put me in this awkward situation. Two, I carried so much respect for her as we have worked together for years without any sort of unethical projections. Three, SHE IS TOTALLY MARRIED. Four, I have cycled with her husband a few times and he is a great guy. Five, The incident really freaked me out and still bothers me. She will be the first client that I will refuse to see again in over a decade of practicing massage, neuromuscular therapy, and /or Ortho. So sucked and not looking forward to hearing from her anytime soon. She caused me to even question my own judgement for a second but I know deep in my heart that this was all instigated by her. I handled her unwelcoming advance professionally and honestly but the anger that built inside of me frustrates me even as I type this. And now, what do I tell her husband when I see him out and about?? Royal Piss'r 

On the other end of the spectrum, a new older client came into the office Saturday before the Super Bowl and we had a fantastic session together. 100% massage and proper pressure was achieved!! They were so stoked and afterwards they pointed out how other massage therapist hurt them, didn't listen to them, or basically had no idea how to meet their model of the world. We reschedule for three weeks from that appointment and I believe they will be filed under regular rockin' good folk. So Dig That  

SUPER BOWL:

Speaking of Super Bowl Sunday, I can personally say," What A Fantastic Game!!" This was the first Super Bowl in years that I had NO Allegiance or didn't flat out despised one team/player on the field. All I knew was that Monday would be a gem because I wouldn't be waking up with pissy pants on. SCORE

And the fact that there was only a 3 point difference at the half, Cincy came back in the second half, and then the Rams won by 3 points, totally entertaining. Call me crazy daisy but the Halftime Show lived up to my expectations with old cruiser cars to boot. My only negative observation I care to share is why there was nothing projected onto the white staged buildings??? Or maybe I am missing a cultural reference there with all white plain buildings. Still, Halftime Held My Attention 

A number of commercials cracked me up and I literally laughed out loud. Yes, there were a few that flew over my head but I was once again completely entertained by the moment. Walter The Cat, Brilliant!! I was way surprised by the amount of electric cars and trucks. Arnold's electric BMW was a classic for sure and I am not all that much of a big fan of his. Seth marring the ghost zombie was outstanding because I truly never saw that coming. I definitely did not recognize Larry David right away but his commercial was hilarious. You know, the whole event treated me well from start to finish. Congrats Smell-A Fans

GYM ACTION:

My overall strength is finally coming back around. Meaning, fatigue isn't the issue like it was back in the Fall of 20BLK Jack. I haven't added any heavier weight to my routine but have slowed down my pace of each rep. Somedays I simply pass on the count and focus on the negative of the exercise. Example; bicep curls, curl the dumbbell up, hold the flex for two Mississippi, and then finish the rep as slowly as I possibly can. I have yet to strategically target muscle groups. Example; back / bi on Mondays, chest / try Tuesday, or arms / legs Wednesday. My archaic lifting is by feel of the day or interest or what feels right. 

My cardio needs special attention and my stretching program is less than adequate. Will be ramping up the fitness schedule soon while easing into more weight training as well. All in due time my friends. All In Due Time 

GOALS:

  1. Lead By Example 
  2. Experience Nirvana 
  3. Flight Of The Concords 
  4. Toughen Up Baby 
  5. Open Up With Family 
  6. Venture On A Highway
  7. Expand The Practice 
  8. Rock On
  9. Solidify My Timeline For March Travels

I leave you all with this time lapse of mine. Thanx ever so much for continuing to support my creative side. This particular video begins in BLK & White and transitions into full rich color. I enjoyed building this two minute clip and I dig that soundtrack. 

          

Have A Blast Of A Week, Wash Your Paws, And Happy Full Moon

Cheers

  3. You kind of left us hanging about a room mate. Maybe you don't have one yet.

    I like your Radio Rapture playlist, all familiar to me.

    Ah, masseurs. I had my first no physio massage after about a year. His hands go a bit further with me than he would with a new client. He has learnt how to earn a tip. But that is all I want. Other 'masseurs' can supply more if required and people shouldn't expect more from professional masseurs.

  4. Hello,
    You are brave to advertise for a room mate, I would be scared to even let a stranger come to my house. There are so many crazies out there. It is sad, you had an issue with a client. That should never happen. I like your list of goals. Take care, enjoy your day!

  5. I could never room with someone I didn't know. You're brave to put an ad out. Sorry that your client crossed boundaries she shouldn't have. As to what to say to her husband should you meet up with him? Never miss an opportunity to keep your mouth shut. I think the quote is attributed to John Wayne.

  6. Dearest Travis,
    Enjoyed the birds singing in your video, your 16th viewer.
    What an adventures, mainly with people that can act at times unpredictable! Glad you kept your aim at a higher moral issue.
    And for placing the ad, that is absolutely tricky!
    Doggies or kitties are easier to deal with...
    The Radio show sounds like being a class one. That is for quite some time they do this!
    Hugs,

  8. It has to be hard to find a good flat mate. Good luck with the search. I listened to some of the radio show. I enjoyed your choice of music and your voice too. It must have been disappointing for your long time client to cross the line the way she did. How awkward it will be when you see her husband again. The video is always an interesting look at life there.

  9. The radio show was a great one, loved hearing cover versions of some fantastic tunes. I tuned in at about 4 min mark and thanks for the shout out. I'm #19 on the time lapse video, love seeing those clouds float by. I hope you can find a renter for the room but in today's word that can be a frustrating project. Good luck, enjoy the upcoming weekend. Our Storm Eunice arrives in the early morning hours, rain, some places will get snow but not us. We'll be able to see the snow on Mount Errigal so I'm hoping for a good photo.

  10. Im tuned in to the replay, so nice WISH I had not forgotten, I don't have to know what day it is these days. Good luck with the room mate, I did it for one whole year in NYC NOT fun. The line crosser, wow this is normally what most us women have to put up with on the regular, from the boss, the coworkers, the guy next door...I really hope you opened up on her and told her how you feel about it, don't become a me too. Good goal list especially #6. Spring is a coming.

  12. Never expected that of 1234! Sorry, but it made me laugh.
    Sad when you don´t know what a vision is...
    Hmmmm... Imagine... Cool to see your equipment...really!
    Thumbs up from here, too.
    Oh. Bummer with that client.
    The last quarter was so early in the morning, I had to go to bed as I forgot to ask for a day off in advance.
    And THAT is what I was looking forward to, the ads!!! Nope for Germany.
    Hope they come out on YouTube.
    Love you goals, as usual! Why the heck am I not that creative, this is fun-thinking!

  19. I like your Radio Rapture playlist. Listening radio is a way to be part of a community that loves the same kind of music. I remember with nostalgia when in the early 70s, like all the kids of my same age, I dined in a hurry to go to listen to a radio program called Supersonic that, at 08:40 p.m., broadcast that "transgressive" rock that we now call "classic rock". And my beloved mom said: "Please, turn down the volume, it's night"!
    How many memories, how many unforgettable songs, we were happy!

  21. What can I say, you have great taste in music. There is no song of your list that I don't like, they are all sublime!
    On the other hand, the story with your old date client is unbelievable. I honestly can't understand how can one behave like this with a health care figure, especially one that is assisting her. I am not going to judge anybody but if she is unhappy in her marriage she should try finding a solution, not a way out. Anyways, you behaved well and should be proud of yourself.
    Stay well and strong!

  25. People have just gone off the deep end the past 2 years. I swear, I've seen more crazy than I ever have. It's hard to find a good roommate. My son lives with his best friend since grade school--they've been best buds for years, but now he can't stand him. It's so interesting how you really learn what people are like when you live with them. I hope you find someone personable. And yikes to the client/friend hitting on you. Awkward! Altho it could have been more awkward had you indulged...

    Yeah, the Super Bowl was great!!!

  28. I'm sorry to hear about you not being able to find a roommate. I imagine it isn't easy to find someone normal to share one's home with these days. Even sensible people are cracking under stress...and wacky types are becoming worse and worse.
    I'm also very sorry to hear about your bad experience with the married client of yours. You did right to distance yourself from the situation as I'm convinced it is not in any way or form your fault. My advice is not to tell the husband anything. You don't have to get involved into something that isn't a fault of yours. If she has any sense, she will apologize and never bother you again.
    Have a nice week ahead!
