The Captain injured in battle

While the captain was fighting obesity he threw out his lower back. It was an epic battle. Stringing tomatoes was the villain , and the captain was hit, and forced flat on his backside. Unfortunately he met up with Carl's Jr. Jalapeno burger. The spicy one promised to ease his pain, but as we all know he is always a villain pretendsing to be our friend. Weigh in is Tuesday. Hoping to break even

The Captain's log of 7 favorite albums

I thought this was going to be an easy task when Spider tagged me to compile a list of my 7 favorite albums. The difficulty was narrowing it down to my favorite 6. I now tag Half the Man,Don Q , Dawn, twicetheman and Gynipher
1. Van Halen 1984 still brings back memories of my first kiss over 23 years ago on a bus going home from Magic Mountain. David Lee Roth was at his pinacle, and Eddie was Eddie. Enough said. I think it is the one album that defines the eighties heavy metal scene. Maybe this group was what the movie Rockstar was based on. If it wasn't it should have been.
Dancing on the Ceiling cover
2. Lionel Richie's Dancing on the Ceiling was a masterpiece. I guess I loved it so much because I bought my freshman year of college. I remember listening the title hit while driving to one of my first college parties. Little did I know that going to that gathering would lead me to spend an extra year in college making up for all "my dancing on the ceilings"
Open Up And Say...Ahh! censored cover (1988)
3. Open Up and Say...Ahh by poison. Poison was one of the eighties best Glam Heavy metal bands. Nothing but a good time and every rose has its thorn were the two bests songs on this album.
Wilson Phillips cover
4, Wilson Phillips, the album with the groups name. was a changing of the guard from the eighties to the nineties. Hold on and Release me were songs I remember well when I lived near New York. I think it was the only great album they produced. I am happy Ms. Wilson finally got control of her weight.
Tails cover
5. Tails, by Lisa Loeb, was one of the those albums that was worth buying for the strength of this one song. Although she is not a one hit wonder, Stay(I miss you) is a song that will be played for many decades and many will always be indentify it as her only top charter. To this day it really a song I cannot fully get out of my mind.
The Way It Is cover
6. The way it is by Bruce Hornsby and the Range is one of the few lp albums that I saved. The way it is and mandolin rain are songs that bring my first year in college back crystal clear. I was more idealistic and less cynical back then. I wish I could return to that life perspective. It is something that I am working on
7. OU812 by Van Halen is an album that I loved because they tried to break their own mold. Eddie on keyboards. It was really bold. When its Love and Cabo Wabo were the two best songs. I am one of the few fans that loved Van Halen and Van Hagar. One of the biggest regrets I have is missing David Lee Roth touring with Sammy Hagar a few years back. Thanks Spider for making me dig deep

Jerry Falwell RIP

When I was in my early twenties I use to listen to Jerry Falwell's old time Gospel hour. Its been over 15 years since I watched the show. However, I always remembered a comment that he made that impacted my life in a deep long lasting way. Dr. Falwell said, in a nutshell, that the biggest influences on who you will become in the next five years are the books that you read, and the people you meet, and especially those you hold close to your heart. Rest in Peace Dr. Falwell

Seven Deadly Sins

seven deadly sins

Add to My Profile | More VideosRan into Chris a few days ago. He spoke of obesity being one of the seven deadly sins.He has lost over 65 pounds and deserves a standing ovation.
Are the obese and superobese similar to the drunks and drug addicts that you can find on skidrow? Heroin users wear long sleeves, while the obese shop at the tall and fat shop to hide their bodies. Employers can require applicants to submit to a drug test, while the obese may cheer at stopping the dopers, they hypocritically apply for a disable placard and demand a scooter. Maybe the druggies are more honest? "Food" for thought. The captain has 6 more pounds to permantly set sail for overweightville and leave obesetropolis behind forever. It takes losing 114 lbs. to finally see the truth.Ex methheads see how wrong their habits were and how they weren't being good citizens. Do we care that we skyrocket the nations health care bill? I include myself because I have been part of the problem. Is the captain cracked? Hopefully, my fans can give their feedback. Remember, annoymous commenters need to leave handles. It helps promose a healthy exchange. Finally,follow the finalfifty program and come aboard. It is time to never look back!!!
