Worst Thanksgiving Ever!

Usually thanksgiving is an event! It was an all day thing from about noon until about midnight for me, but since im no longer married it was just one dinner. It was delicious! I honestly dont know how I could keep it down because the Lions game was on too. A merciless 47-10 ASS WHOOPIN! Then my fuckin redneck uncles start w/ the racist Obama jokes, I KNOW nice fuckin touch right? My brother had to work until 3 then he hit his wifes fams house, so I didnt get to see them, my parents went up north so I didnt see them after dinner. So I was alone at home. I went home had leftovers, watched Meatloaf Storytellers, had a couple beers, and went to bed at like 10:30...overall it was unevenful, and to make matters worse im at fuckin work right now! So yeah Thanksgiving was not the best this year, but I Still have a lot to be thankful for...

My Fav Things about the Xmas Season!

Oh the Xmas season! It starts officially on the day after Thanksgiving, but some people think it starts Nov 1 (Curse you WNIC)So here it is my 5. fav things about the Xmas season!

5. White trash people fighting at stores!
Oh nothing says Happy Holidays like 2 rednecks beating each others ass to get that $499 42 in flatscreen TV!

4. No Parking!
I don't even go to stores anymore, I do all my Xmas shopping online. Why? because the damn stores ARE PACKED! You gotta park WAY OUT IN BFE, and then you get to the store and they are out of what you want! 2004 Started my Xmas online rampage, and it hasn't stopped!

3. Xmas Music!
Because who doesn't want to hear Jingle Bells by Josh Groban, and Sting, and Whitney Houston, and Boyz II Men, and Mariah Carey, and Bing Crosby, and Barenaked Ladies, and Garth Brooks and....

2. Leg Lamps! I love that electric sex glowing in the window!

1. Dec 26, because Xmas is fucking over!

Street of Dreams...

Sometimes when you get a new album there is an obvious standout track. Sometimes said track applies to you personally w/ the lyrics. This one is called Street of Dreams, its by Guns N Roses and the lyrics really hit me, because what Axl is talking about, applies to my divorce like CRAZY! Especially the line "What I thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore"

Here are the lyrics also!

All the love in the world couldn't save you
All the innocence inside
You know I tried so hard to make you
Ooo I wanna make you change your mind

And it hurts too much to see you
And how you left yourself behind
You know I wouldn't want to be you
Now there's a hell I can't describe

So now I wander through my days
Trying to find my ways
To the feelings that I felt
I saved for you and no one else

And though as long as this road seems
I know it's called the street of dreams
But that's not stardust on my feet
It leaves a taste that's bittersweet
That's called the blues

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
You know it's what you planned, this much is true
What I thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

I don't know just what I should do
Everywhere I go I see you
You know it's what you planned, this much is true
What I thought was beautiful, don't live inside of you anymore

What this means to me
Is more than I know you believe
What I thought of you now
Has cost more that it should for me

What I thought was true before
Were lies I couldn't see
What I thought was beautiful
Is only memories

5 Legendary Cds..According to Bobby G!

Now I'm not going to say these are my all time top 5 favorites, but they'd be up there for sure, rest assured that these albums are great!

5. Ben Folds- Rockin the Suburbs

This a a great album! Ben folds is a musical Genius! This album proves it! The songs are all so different, from the slow Piano jam Fred Jones Pt 2 to the rocking, hip hop oriented Rockin the Suburbs, this CD is one I always come back to!

4. Snoop Doggy Dogg- Doggystyle

This CD released in 1993 was one of the best selling debut CDs of all time! Snoop came on the scene in 1992's The Chronic, by mentor Dr Dre. His solo album was highly anticipated and he did not disappoint! What you got was 14 tracks of pure 90s west coast hip hop. 3 top singles, Whats My Name?, Doggy Dogg World, and Gin & Juice shot this CD to super stardom!

3. Outkast-Southernplayalisticcadilacmuzik.

Quite a name huh? this 1994 CD was my favorite by hip hop supergroup Outkast. It brought together fantastic beat, awesome lyrics & southern attitude to the rap game. Big Boi & Andre have become one of hip hops most respected groups. This is how they started, OH did I mention they were 17!

2. Meat Loaf Bat out of Hell!

This a a great album! 7 songs, 45 mins, just fantastic! Some of the songs are almost theatrical. Fantastic production by Todd Rundgren music & lyrics by Jim Steinman, and Meat Loafs voice in his prime! This CD has sold over 34 million copies world wide & still sells 200,000 a year. The CD came out in 1977, now that is staying power!

1. Guns N' Roses- Appetite For Destruction

Viewed by many as the greatest Heavy metal album of all time! Axl Roses powerful voice! Slashs fantastic guitar, and great writing & production, make this album legendary! There are 12 songs and all of them rock hard! Its in my eyes a flawless example of what rock music is! I LOVE IT!

Chinese Democracy..A Review...

Chinese Democracy, the LONG awaited album from Guns N Roses, finally dropped, 14 yrs later. It was supposed to drop initially in 1995. Every year since then it was slated to be released, it became a joke of the music industry. People were saying that when the album finally came out China would actually have a democracy. Well it dropped today. The question on many peoples minds is, was it worth the wait? In a word yes! There are some fantastic songs on the album! The album has a great mix of heavy songs and many slower piano songs that eventually rock! Its vintage GNR, around use your illusion time. The standout tracks are: Street Dreams, IRS, Rhiad & the Beduins, Better, madagascar, and Catcher in the RYE. The album in general has great production, and the songs all change tempos, and go from faster to slower or vice versa. Axl sounds as good as ever! He can still hit ALL the notes, which I questioned. The album is 75 mins long, and many songs are over 5 mins (9 of 14) GNR is at their best w/ the long songs. Love the album, get it! GNR is back baby! and I couldnt be more happy! (4.5 out of 5 stars)

Damn...5 shots?

I attempted to be 22 again yesterday and fuckin failed. MISERABLY! I started at about 12:30 watching UM get fuckin killed by OSU. We had a huge feast at about 5 or so, then went tot h bar at about 10. It was Caseys Bowmans Bday celebration and we went to Blue Leprechaun. It was a BLAST! But I had 5 shots and 6 or so beers there, yeah I puked today. The 1st time from drinkin since Dec of 06. The night was fun though, so no real regrets! But I GOTTA REMEMBER that I cant do that shit no more! lol

Im a die hard Michigan Hoops fan. Its not easy to admit. They have been awful for 10 years. They havent made the NCAA tourney, they havent beaten a ranked team, they havent done anything actually relavant since I was in HS. That changed last night! UM shocked #4 UCLA at Madison Square Garden in NY. It was in the semi finals of the Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic. We play #10 Duke (yes that Duke) for the championship tonight. If we lose, honestly, it doesnt really matter. We beat UCLA, we can see our team has shown AMAZING improvement in the last year. Last year we went 10-22, we lost to HARVARD for gods sake! MY main hope is that we play Duke hard. I dont know if they can beat Duke, but I KNEW they couldnt beat UCLA. way to prove me wrong Wolverines!

Dont buy a house...Seriously!

IN Feb 2007 me and my wife (at the time) bought a house. WE LOVED IT! It had a 2.5 car garage w/ heated workshop, it had a finished bsmt, hardwood floors, it was JUST perfect for us! In May of 2008 we realized that our mortgage got fucked up because of taxes. it went from $980-$1320 in 1 fuckin month! We decided we would have to refinance. Well we didnt have the house long enough so the refi really cost us. We got our payment down to $1150, but, we acrewed a bunch of fees so our mortgage went from $110K to $115K Well in Sept of 2008 We filed for divorce. Now we must sell said house. It was appraised for $123K. We are now asking $99,900. We got an offer for
$67K. A lowball fuckin BS offer for $67K. Now we have 2 options, be like FUCK YOU! And see what happens. Or try to do a short sale. Now for those not familiar w/ a shortsale, the bank sells the house to the buyer and says OK they are giving us
$67K, we are even. Our credit will take a hit, about 80-100pts, but whatever. We also cant buy a house for 2 yrs (will I ever again? not sure) So no big deal. But all because we decided to buy a house, it messed up our credit (mildly but still) I got my CC debt out of control (my fault, but I knew I couldnt afford the house I shouldve said something) so since Ive had this house everything in my life pretty much fell apart. it was a fuckin awful exp & I dont recommend it to anyone, unless you can afford it your self.

Bobby G! The Host w/ the Most!

So it has been decided that December 4th a Wings Pizza N Things, there will be karaoke! 9pm-1am, I am the host! Im stoked, I wanted to host karaoke for a long time. Stoo never had a show for me!

Come out and support Bobby G! Itll be a blast!

New Life.....New Experiences....

Thirty, though its only a few weeks old, has been kind of a revelation to me. With what's happening at work, and the FUCKED UP MI ECONOMY, I'm kind of thinking about getting the fuck out of MI. MI blows! I was born & raised here, but find the prospect of living here not so appealing. Now that I'm no longer married, and now that my house is getting looked at a lot ( 5 times this week) hopefully someone will buy it, there is nothing keeping me here except family & friends. I love my family & friends, that's undeniable, but I feel like I may need a new exp. Well I applied to some jobs in Atlanta. Not that anything will come from it, but I kind of hope it does. I have friends that live there, and I could crash with them. They live right across the street from a cheesecake factory, and right around the corner from an ESPN Zone, so there will be serving jobs readily avail, if I don't get a job I applied for. I kind of just need a new exp. I need to meet new people, be on my own and go somewhere where the avg temp in DEC is 55! Harley weather for sure! Atlanta is a fantastic city, I was there in 1997, I enjoyed every second of it! Plus my friends that live there, Marisa and Bill, are great people! Obviously the wheels aren't yet in motion, in fact I don't know if Ill have the balls to do it! But 30 is gonna come w/ some life changes, that's for damn sure!

Why I hate Pearl Jam & Nirvana & the Doors

Now I LOVE MUSIC! I listen to all kinds all genres etc. But these 3 bands I DESPISE!!!! I'm gonna tackle them individually for ya

Nirvana- There was a time when I liked Nirvana. though the music was hard to understand & the lyrics made me wanna kill myself, I liked the music. Then in 1994 Kurt Cobain killed himself. all of a sudden Nirvana was the best band ever! Every time there is a countdown of best CDs of the 1990s nirvana ALWAYS WINS! Every time! It wasn't that great of a CD guys. I hate to break it to you. it had 4 or 5great songs, but it was not legendary, nor was it classic. it was just decent... The truth hurts doesn't...

The Doors- Ive always hated the Doors. When my dad forced me to listen to them on the way up north, I couldn't stand it. I thought I was being punished. WTF did I do that was so bad I had to listen to the Doors for 4 straight hours, id rather be in purgatory. Heres my major problem w/ the Doors. No bass, they have a keyboard player instead. it makes the music sound like cheap fucking carnival music. it drives me nuts. If they would've axed the keyboardist & replaced it w/ a legit bassist, I may have been able to deal. But alas, nope.

Pearl Jam- Of all the bands I hate, this one draws the most ire from friends & colleagues. I'm just gonna say it I HATE PEARL JAM! HATE THEM! There are several reasons. 1. I hate grunge, and they were the MAIN band in grunge (thanks Kurt Cobain!)2. Grunge killed my beloved hair metal, 3. grunge lasted like 4 years. It wasn't worth it. 4. Eddie Vetter is the worst singer ever. He doesn't even sing, he fucking mumbles, and people go ape shit over it. Basically they are so overrated. Whenever I hear Pearl Jam butcher a cover, (like Last Kiss) it makes me wanna puke. They do it on the regular too! Every Pearl Jam cover is about 50 times worse than the original, because the lack of Eddie Vetters range as a singer. Now if you like Pearl Jam, I wont hate on you, but I will shit on your music choice lol! Long Live GNR! fuck Pearl Jam!

Man down, Man down....

This morning I'm going to work, I get to the structure, get in the elevator and exit the building. I'm on the sidewalk and totally hit some black ice & down I go. I had my ipod in my pocket,(didn't break) and it totally got trapped between my body and the ground. I got 2 REALLY sore ribs. But no visible bruising...we shall see tomm...but OW! the good news was there were no visible witnesses, i even though i was hurting, I wasn't too embarrassed, welcome winter, its good to have you!

My Parents House? Really?

So I'm sitting at home watching UM lose and a guy comes to the door. I answer and he says "this is gonna sound weird, but I'm with a movie scouting company and your house matches the type and style we want to shoot a movie in" I'm like Huh? lol I told him my parents weren't home, but they would call him back Sunday, he gives me a sheet w/ all the info and the website to show this movie does exist & hes legit. The movie is called the Betty Ann Waters Story, it stars either Naomi Watts or Hilary Swank depending on where you go. Its about a lady whose brother gets convicted of a crime that he didn't commit. She goes to Law School to get a degree and actually frees her brother w/ DNA evidence in 2001. Why would they want my parents house is the question. Its old, its bright fucking yellow, and it has a bunch of tiny ass rooms. I cant fathom a film crew here. It'd be cool as shit though, because Naomi Watts is fucking HOT lol. Hilary Swank, not so much. So lets hope we see the Garrott household in a Hollywood film, thatd be AWESOME!!!!

Bobby G, Single... and Struggling With It.

Single...Its kinda weird to say. I haven't been for 5 years, (and will not be officially until Dec 11, but in my own mind I've been single for a few months) The game has changed. I'm not in tune with it. Now I always had the ability to date girls hotter than i should. I get by on the combo of good looking enough but with a FANTASTIC personality (not to toot my own horn lol) I'm very outgoing, fun to be around, and funny. But where I now struggle is with confidence. I haven't struggled with that since HS. I'm very confident, bordering on cocky at times lol, but I have recently had troubles approaching girls I don't know. 2 things help: 1. Alcohol, 2. Alcohol. When i have a few drinks I can talk to anyone, but I cant be drunk 24/7 lol. I'm really not ready to start dating yet anyways, I just need to hangout, get to know people, and have occasional sex lol. That's also scary. Sex. STDs, babies, and emotional attachment. Haven't had to worry about those things either. Its going to be fun though. There are many beautiful people, some of which I have met recently. I'm excited about the prospect of meeting new people. That's great because I love people! I also like attractive people, which is also good hitting the bars and clubs, there are many of them around. Basically as I ramble on I need my loyal readers to hook me up! lol. The best way to meet someone is through a friend. It's a comfort zone, it takes away the randomness of the whole situation, it also builds trust. I basically just need a cute, funny girl, who isn't jealous and would ride on a Harley, if you know anyone LET ME KNOW!

Uncertain Future...

So my Boss at about 9:00 am yesterday said "Meeting at 9:45" I'm thinking that cant be good, I asked her what it was about & she said consolidation, I thought OH FUCK! So we go to this meeting and all the Big wigs are there, all the managers & the publisher...she runs the whole damn show here, so I knew it was dramatic. She goes tot he podium and looks like shes gonna cry, again not good, because she is a VERY strong woman. She starts saying how we are struggling, economy, blah blah blah, I mean we all know this, so no new info here. Well then she dropped the bomb. Four full depts Prepress (where I used to work) Art Dept (where I want to work) Pagination, & support. Plus some of editorial, are all moving to Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo. So what are peoples options? They can APPLY for their old jobs (Read: may not get them at GR or Kzoo) if they don't want to relocate OR don't get the job they can take a buyout if they are Full Time for 5 yrs or more (not sure what the buyout is yet)Where I work has a policy that you wont be laid off so what will happen if you don't get your job or am not eligible for the buyout is that you can get a position (not what you did before) here or one of the other locations (there are 8 in the state) They will have you do whatever they want. So basically, the poor people who have houses and kids & shit, obviously cant peace out & go to GR or KZoo, so they have to stay here. Is a messed up situation, and it REALLY makes me worry about the future of my job here. Obviously newspapers are a dying industry, I think that when the baby boomers are gone thee isn't gonna be newspapers anymore. The Internet has taken over. That's the reality of it. The bitch of it is those depts have ALL MY WORK FRIENDS in it. It kills me, cause they are in this tough situation, and I'm here w/ minor worries comparatively. I hope all this works out.

Meatloaf, Awesome in all forms!

My buddy Shaggy says hes going to do a post about Meatloaf, but he never will so I'm gonna do it right now! Now I'm not talking about the delicious meat entree, I'm talking about the singer! The overweight, power voiced singer. Every show was like a musical. this was a 300+ pound man giving it his all for a show! he would often pass out after a show do the the amount of energy exerted. People my age think Meatloaf is lame. Hes not for everyone, you must like well produced, very musical songs, with tons of piano, vocal crescendos, and bad ass guitar solos. His 1977 album Bat Out of hell sold over 34 million copies world wide & continues to sell 200,000 a year according to Rolling Stone. It is a legendary album. 7 songs, 45 mins, of pure musical joy! It starts w/ Bat out of hell, an 11 minute joyride of rock! But probably the best known song is Paradise by the Dashboard Lights, its about getting laid for the 1st time in a car.
Below is a video for Paradise by The Dashboard Lights

I listen to Bat out of Hell all the time! Its one of my favorite Motorcycling albums, and its great to listen to in the car too!
After Bat out of Hell, Meatloaf didn't have a mainstream album for 15 years. he had vocal chord issues and had to fight back, the result was 1993s bat out of Hell II. it spawned the hit, Id do Anything for Love (but I wont do that) The video is below.

This album produced Meatloafs ONLY #1 hit (id do anything for love...) Meatloaf is the man! He rocks! give it a shot! You may enjoy Meatloaf, even if you don't like meatloaf...

Im actually really happy she came. At about 10-11 is when MANY people started to come! Lots of the night I dont recall much of, but thankfully people took pictures! here they are!

Man Walk of Shame....

So everyone knows about the walk of shame It typically involves a girl dressed for the club from the night before on her way home from a drunken hookup. Well I have determined the man walk of shame. It involves NOT HAVING SEX and being dressed in a suit, at 11 am from the night before, (I'm not going to church after all), messed up hair, and bar funk/cologne mix smell. It happened to me last night. I went home w/ a friend of mine and her friend, I was piss drunk, and passed out on her couch after eating pizza. Its all good! The walk of shame lives in everyone, even Bobby G.

30 Years old...22 yr old weekend...

The fog has lifted, the hangover is gone, and now its time for me to post about the 30th bday weekend. It was a blast! Friday night I met up w/ some friends at a random house party on A2 saline-Rd. Played some beer pong, and some drinking ping pong, but the we rolled to the "firehouse" which is some apt complex on 4th & Madison. It used to be a firehouse back in the day and there was a HUGE lobby, w/ a DJ playing Techno (garbage) but the environment was cool. Then, I GOT DRUNK! it was my Bday at midnight so I made sure everyone at the party knew! I was the Bday boy! Dancing it up, killing beers, and taking shots of blackberry brandy (thanks Gabe!) I rolled w/ my friend Kristen, she knew these peeps, so all my boys rolled w/ her, it was a GREAT time! After the party got broken up by the cops (I didn't care I was 30!) We rolled to Babs, a Martini/Jazz type bar in downtown A2. I was really drunk & only remember 2 PBRs and a shot there. I got a ride home (after Burger King) and cashed out. Sat I woke up HUNGOVER, but not too bad, it was slightly shitty till about 1 or so, but I got out of it nicely! I was impressed w/ my 30 yr old skills lol. The rest of sat afternoon, I drank water, chilled and got ready for the evening. The party was at my friend Dave's house on waters Rd in Wagner (city country) there has a shit ton of land, and this Halloween party is ALWAYS good times. I rolled w/ Casey (robber), Brian (golfer), Steve Chang (Banana), Sevan (warrior from 300) , and Big Chris (Wheres Waldo), my friend Stephanie (hottest Cop ever) also rolled a bit later. I was a Vampire. When we got to the party we took a hayride, complete w/ a very shaken up keg. It was foamy as all hell, but it became beer eventually! It was about and hr & I was fuckin freezing! But it was a great time. when we got back I ate some chili and commenced to getting drunk! I DID! Somewhere in there I lost at some euchre, danced a bit, and flirted w/ a bevy or hotties that were there. Casey Bowman met a bad ass little chick, nice work CB. way later in the evening I was sitting at the campfire and 3 guys got to the party, we had an in depth discussion about hip hop and how shitty it is, then we started freestyle rap battling lol. That's right! I tore it up! got mad props from the people, I enjoyed it. I ended up passing out, and waking up at about 10am (went to bed at 5am) and I was in ROUGH SHAPE! i though for sure I was gonna puke (never Did) but my Sunday was useless until about 8pm or so. I went to bed at 9:45 lol. So in the end my 30 ness did wear through! Oh well, it was a great weekend!

100.3 WNIC has gone all Xmas Music until Xmas day. I seriously want to vomit. I HATE XMAS. Its true, I mean I'm selfish so I like presents, but other than that I hate the holiday season. Hate lights & store traffic & most of all I hate Xmas Music. Its like the same 5 songs, all done slightly different, but mostly they are all the same. It drives me nuts! fortunately my work hasn't put it on yet, but the real XMas season doesn't start until the day after Thanksgiving. I can at least tolerate it then. But Nov 1 thats too damn far.

Mechanic Dad Savior!

So I get up early today because I went to bed at 9:45 last night (30 yr old trying handle a weekend of partying my ass off!) Ive also been late to work too much lately, so i decided to get up 10 mins earlier than I normally would on top of that. I have to be to work at 8:30, I currently live 10 mins away. I walk out the door at 7:59, in great shape, I was gonna stop at Panera & get a bagel, but alas drama occurred. At the Huron Pkwy Washtenaw light (for those that don't know it is one of the busiest intersections in Ann Arbor) My car decides that it no longer wants to move, and it stalls, right in the middle of the intersection, blocking all 4 lanes of traffic, I'm like SHIT! So i get out of the car, throw it in neutral, and start to pushing, only its up hill so i can barely get it to budge. I'm freaking out because cars are everywhere & I'm totally fuckin up traffic, I hate being in that position. Thankfully a guy stops in an SUV and starts pushing w/ me, we get it rolling pretty good at that point, and finally lay it to rest in the Barnes & Noble parking lot. So I'm going to be late to work, (which was the whole point of getting up early) I call my Dad's shop, and he says he'll be there in a minute, so as I'm waiting for him I try to start the car. Nothing. But wouldn't you fuckin know it, as soon as he gets there the car starts, "that was easy", he replies, "but let me try something" he goes to the truck and gets out his canteen, and drenches the coil w/ water. 20 seconds later it stalls again "A-Ha" he says. He had a spare coil with him and ghetto rigged it to make it work. So i get to work at 8:45, and now have to go to the shop after work to get my car fixed, its gonna be $60 for the part, no big deal, so now my hoopty car is gonna get a whole new piece for it! So its happy.
