God, I hate exercising. It’s boring, it’s time consuming and, if you’re doing it properly, it hurts like hell. But I’m an old dad. I started a family very late in life. [My friends back in Ohio have kids in college. I have a 3-Year old.] I owe it to The Daughters and to Mrs. Wife to stay as healthy as possible for as long as possible. So I exercise. And, God, I hate it. But I have to do it for their sake.
I went out for a run today. Plugged in my earbuds, put my iTouch on shuffle and it spit out the following:
Keep Yourself Alive by Queen
Lust for Life by Iggy Pop
Father and Daughter by Paul Simon
Cure for Pain by Morphine
Dear Mr. Jobs: This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Please stop FUCKING with me, man!

Mapstew did a post congratulating Sesame Street on its 40th anniversary. I was just outside the curve and never benefited from Sesame Street, however, I remember seeing a parody of Billy Idol’s Rebel Yell. It was called Rebel L and it was about the letter “L.” They had an emotionally tormented punk Billy Idol Muppet and used the same camera angles and attitude as the actual video for Rebel Yell. It holds up well and it gave me a laugh.
