Christmas Day...

All is well here in Tennessee.  Sad to say that I haven't been able to ride much due to 70hr work weeks and -9 degree weather.  I am planning to bundle up the next few days and brave the cold so that I can get back in shape.  Xbox 360 and beer have made me lazy and it shows.  Definitely a little rough around the edges these days.  2009 should make for a good starting point for a newcomer to MTB racing.  Can't wait to saddle up and ride my new Vassago Single Speed against alot of these seasoned vets and see how I fair.  Enough for now, going to enjoy the holdiays with my family.

Politics or Religion?

Who gives a shit?  Both of them create argument during normal conversation and another reason to be mad at your friends and family, the ones you care about most!  I had someone tell me just the other day that I was ignorant for not believing in what they did.  I got a message for all you egotistic assholes who think you can single handed-ly change the world...STFU!

I was listening to a song the other day by a band I just introduced into my library.  They are called Five Finger Death Punch.  Granted it may be to hardcore for most...if you can get beyond the fact that it isnt your normal genre of music and listen to the lyrics they have meaning.  One song in particular struck me pretty close to home.  It's called salvation and the chorus is listed below...

I won't bow to something that I've never seen!
I can't believe in something that doesn't believe in me!
I'm not blood of your blood!
I'm no son of your god!
I've no faith in your fate!
Still I find Salvation!

Now before you get all up in arms and think it is sadist.  The lyrics simply state that you don't have to believe in a certain religion or live my certain rules and regulations to find salvation.  Why is this such a far fetched thing for most people to grasp.  I live in the bible belt and I have never been more bombarded with bullshit bible thumpers in all my life.  Get over yourself. 

Whew!  Much better. More later!

Just the beginning...

As I start through my first journey of transformation...I will be posting up here occasionally just to track my performance and rant a bit in between because that's who I am and thats what I do.  I play to log most of my bike rides which are becoming bi-weekly.  I tend to catch alot of shit for my beliefs so I will also be posting up random thoughts and stories just for entertainment.
