More Lyrical Brilliance From Sammy Hagar – Kama

Marching To Mars by Sammy Hagar

There’s a bunch of stuff going on in the world and in my personal life right now.  My heart goes out to those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon yesterday.  During these times I often turn to music to get me through.  Today my iPod shuffled to an outstanding song called Kama by Sammy Hagar which I just had to share.  Per Sammy, the word “Kama” is the Sanskrit translation for “love”.  He wrote the … Continue reading

Scott Weiland at The House of Blues Cleveland

Scott Weiland At The House Of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio

I had the opportunity to attend last night’s Scott Weiland show at the House of Blues in Cleveland.  The show was billed as Scott playing the first two Stone Temple Pilots albums in their entirety.  I’m a huge STP fan so I jumped at the chance to see the former front man perform what I consider to be his best work. NOTE: For those of you that don’t know, Weiland was recently dismissed as the … Continue reading

Gavin DeGraw Spoke To Me – I Don’t Want To Be

Gavin DeGraw - Chariot Stripped (2004)

Doing some work this morning and this one came across the iPod shuffle and it compelled me to write a quick post.  Believe it or not, I’m a pretty introspective person.  I’m guessing this is why I’m such a big lyrics guy. Like everyone else, I’ve always got a ton of shit going on in my life, and if you follow me here you know that my family means everything to me.  I often find … Continue reading

Cleveland Browns Opening Day 2012

Chewie & His Wife

So this post is way overdue, but I’m going to do it any way.  The Wife and I had an opportunity to go to the first Cleveland Browns football game of the season a couple of weeks ago.  Opening Day for the Browns is typically the best day of the season seeing as by week 5 or so they’ve lost all their games and people are already talking about the next quarterback, coach or draft … Continue reading

Another Year Another Midget

Chewie & The Midgets - Midget Wrestling 2012

Last year, I had the pleasure of being introduced to for the first time in my life an incredible thing… midget wrestling. When the Akron Aeros released their special events calendar one of the first events my friend @LaVieBoheme73 looked for was the return of the midgets.  I was thrilled to find out that the powers that be were nice (smart) enough to bring this even back again this year on August 23rd! It was … Continue reading

Episode II: Attack Of G & C

The Boys Watching Attack Of The Clones

If you know me even a little bit, you know that Star Wars is a big part of my childhood.  It’s partially the reason that my friends know me as Chewie and regardless of the sham that the franchise has become, I feel it’s my duty as a parent to expose my children to the films. So… when the Wife goes out for an evening and it’s G, C and I holding down the fort, … Continue reading

Videos Today… Wow. Just Wow.

Red Solo Cup By Toby Keith

I’m old enough to remember a time where MTV played videos.  I’m also old enough to really not have time for the garbage that MTV currently has in their lineup.  Actually, now that I think about it, that last statement isn’t fair.  At this point I really don’t know what MTV is playing these days cause I was turned off by the rash of crap (16 And Pregnant, Jersey Shore, The Real World, etc.) they … Continue reading

Time To Join The Fryers Club

Fried Turkey

It’s that time of year… Thanksgiving is almost here!  It’s a time to give thanks, to see family and friends and to gorge yourself on way too much turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and that dish your aunt always brings that no one likes but they take a bit just to be nice. We’re lucky enough to have both sides of our family close, and luckier still that everyone gets along 😉  Just as we did … Continue reading

The End Of The Line – G.I. Joe Pursuit Of Cobra

G.I. Joe Action Figures

I’ve been a huge fan of G.I. Joe for about as long as I can remember.  I collected the toys when I was growing up, watched the cartoon religiously and read the comic books.  When it came time to see G.I. Joe in the theater I was one of the few who actually enjoyed it on the big screen. These days with the boys I don’t do a whole lot of toy collecting.  The vast … Continue reading

Channeling 406 – This Is IU

This is Indiana!

Pip sent me this video earlier today… I clicked and had absolutely no idea what to expect.  I quite literally got goose bumps.  THIS video is the essence the college experience at Indiana.  These guys (who apparently have some fame in the Hoosier state) don’t know it, but they’ve completely channeled the 406 Northlane experience. Please don’t take this to mean that life at IU was all about partying.  There was certainly (more than) a … Continue reading
