Christmas Music The Good The Bad and The Ugly

Sunday is Pretty Much my Christmas

-I have wanted to write some blogs recently but with so much Political Stuff going on doing it on Facebook or commenting on articles takes a lot out of it and plus I don't think most people get it
--This is true of Holiday Shopping and people working and not only all the ferguson stuff and now the Sony stuff

I know Many people do not like Christmas Music but I do mostly Not all day everyday and not on Thanksgiving maybe after the day or if the day is over and you put up Christmas stuff

What I Don't like is that one song The Christmas Shoes oh that is sad and depressing they need to have a warning on that song and maybe put like a hot line number on after it.... And that brings up another Point warning Can we please get them on any gross out ads or that deadly smoking lady ...I don't eat during gory shows for a reason I should be able to change channel or not look if I wish .....

What I also sometimes don't like but mostly like is a lot of it has a Romantic Feel but some of it isn't Christmas music like Let it Snow and Baby it is cold out side :) but they have that romantic tone

The Thing that I like about Christmas Music is that where else can you hear Big Band Music any more or that old style singing and then there is like a new pop artistic take on it and I have heard a couple that are really good and so you get this great different styles of music on the Radio ....

One Bad thing though is I love TSO they are amazing but when you learn their music first by going to see them if you see them enough you picture like the pyro and them above the crowd when their music plays but if you are someone who doesn't really like that thing but you went then you still see it in your Head ? :)

But the one thing that can also be tough about Christmas Music is that it can sometimes remind you of "The Good Times " or say "The Good Ole Days" what I mean you remember when things where good (Kinda like how in a Christmas Story it is a look back at a better time sort of) but the good feeling can be like argh it isn't that way now ... So yeah you can get a little bit down......

But all in All Christmas Music does make me smile and it is fun to pretend you are singing like that in your head ... That is another thing I like about it... It almost all ways has great vocals .....

Harbor Center Area

On Monday I went to Monday Night Raw and not going to post pictures from that to many I wouldn't know where to start but I did take a few around the arena area .....

First of all the Tim Horton Statue has a chain link fence around it but you can't tell with the shots I took.... I do want to try 716 and didn't make it to the Special Tim Horton's yet ... The odd thing though is how big Harbor Centre looks it didn't seem that big last Lacrosse season ........

Sucky Halloween It is my own fault though really ....

I honestly don't know how to start this post or if it will make any sense I do not even get it my self really ...... (I would not call it a panic attack but think anxiety took me out like before I went to parties)

So Back when on Facebook a saw a Halloween Party I was like awesome ... And With it being on a Friday places don't do anything on Thursday and Sat is Nov. I decided that The e-Strip party was where I wanted to be.... I got a costume one day ... Liquor another and drinks another ........

I had everything planned I was going to come home get ready and watch Wrestling till 10 and then leave at 10 and set up the DVR for all this other stuff ...... By The end of the week gets me pretty worn out sometimes it feels so long to me often... So I figured I might not be able to stay to late.........

However (not that persons fault) I knew someone was going who it would be cool to meet and that it would be great to see a bunch of people I have not seen in a long time (sometimes my mind races about things) .... Maybe I have seen some in passing somewhere .... I get home and my cable is out again .... That threw everything off had to call them and get ready and my heart was racing I did not think I felt that bad but watched something on DVR as part of the getting ready... it was really pounding post shower it really was but got together put on costume sat down thought about how I need to shave a bit and then find Camera and batteries

I am not sure how I went out when I sat down I tried to get up but my body would not let me it was still before the time I would have left if cable was working ..... That has happened before (once recently that I can remember hard to explain)

I think Anxiety is what took me out like back before I made it to parties argh I was looking forward to it and let people down........

Oh it gets worse I guess

I have been behind on (e:strip) for some time and I was looking forward to taking pictures and starting here with pictures and trying to keep up (computer is in room where I watch and live tweet not where I watch DVR is one big reason and the mobile site is nice but don't use it enough I like the pictures big I guess ?)

Saturday was going to be a great event at Nietches with Burlesque I was really looking forward to that as well ... Was sitting around first so maybe landlord so I can pay rent and watching some stuff on line and called cable still out .... I did not feel right not allergies not sick really but cough and hard to explain when you feel you are not all there almost zombie like so figured best to not go get anyone sick(crowded bar ) or like fall over and had to go get an antenna so did that got it home set it up and was out in about an hour of watching stuff on line .... Yeah out cold .......

I didn't even get to watch a Halloween movie .......Oh but I did see a special or two like 3 weeks ago I think ...... and have had some candy here and there ................

I am working on Monday and going from there right to Wrestling and I wonder if (cause this has happened in past) when I have a series of events if my body like shuts me down and it is like... Nope we are knocking you out so you will be fresh for this ..... but not sure .....

on a side note I have wanted to post about like MIA festival and Chicken Wing Festival but so many pictures I did not know where to start .....

So need to do a better job keeping up with everyone .....

It could also be that I was debating that stupid online video to much and got into like a little war over it.... That could have lead to extra stress argh

Not sure but sure did get a lot of unwanted sleep this weekend and I'm off Tues and Wends cause I need to take time off from work and day after RAW that will be a long day... I do wonder if my body knowing that picked that event and shut me down on others .... I'm guessing the Anxiety (and way over thinking things letting my mind go where it shouldn't have in days prior ) ARGH

Erie County fair day of the Wallenda Walk

What I think is so great about The Fair as we call it round here is that there is stuff for everyone .. You could go see all the animals or go on all the rides go to the places they have music I go for the shows... Not to mention the Grand Stand stuff Tonight is an event I haven't been to in a long time Ultimate Night of Destruction They have like the Bus demolition derby and like figure 8 racing maybe a couple monster trucks (that use to be its own show) think it is tonight ... Last night was lady Antebellum I thought about going but don't know their music well enough .... Maybe someone goes just to try food they normally wouldn't try or the midway stuff .... I'll try to give a good sampling and then at the end the Walk ... It sounds odd but I've only seen him walk on TV so with out commentary it seemed strange ..... I didn't stay for Laser Light show or Fireworks I could have but getting home on a Sunday post 11PM is walking so.......

Ok I need to explain the walk I guess Nik got lifted up in a lift thing to the wire near the front of the fair grounds close Firehouse building and then walked the wire kinda over the midway area and then into the grand stand area ... Now once he was out of rang blocked by a building I moved to the left a bit and got some more shots there is one that looks like he is standing on the building.... Now the thing is in some spots he is quite far away so he is small now all the way zoomed some shots are close up but then from where I was you lose that he is over the Fair you kinda needed a different angle but I got some .. Where like you would get rides in front or behind him but I hope that makes it more clear ....

iphone and keeping up argh

So I admit I have been having trouble keeping caught up on (e:strip) .... This sounds weird and I'm sure it is but when I post I like to be caught up ... So like back during Infringement festival (Yes I admit I missed a lot of great stuff part of that was location part of that was conflict with sports) and me forgetting about an event... But I did go to 2 events and they where fun ... But at the time I was so behind that I didn't post.... Plus there was the garden walk I saw some fire dancing and this drag burlesque type of show at 9th ward I missed Draglesque at marcello's .... Hoping to post pictures to recap the fair from Sat. on here on Thurs. Now a few things just to vent a bit some thoughts ....

-The iphone is cool and fun and all but oh my gawd it is expensive what the fuck was I thinking I didn't get they add a line charge and Data argh what should have gone through sprint I think argh wow or maybe if I just went to apple store they could have crafted a more suited to me plan argh ......

-iphone is it just it but you can do all this cool stuff (I only know a few things I can't play music or make art videos like in the ads sometimes typing is tough enough or sliding and you wind up some place else ) But Sunday I went to The Fair and the Battery died on my way home.... The battery tech needs to catch up to the smart phones some how... It use to be you could swap them out in the old phones and think Samsung has a new one that you can .....


> That is part of the reason I forget to mobile post on (e:strip) plus with out a zoom that I know of it kinda has to be right in front of you close to be a good shot .... With batteries that don't last the entire day can I really post to multiple sites ???

Also the Robin Williams death hit me harder then it should ? Wrestling was on so that took me out of that funk we will call it.... But it still lingered the next day argh.....

So Hoping I can get back into the habit of reading here and not getting behind ...The Mobile site is great but I don't think my phone sees video on it for some reason oh might be a Safari thing and need to look into uploading video my self .....

I know there is stuff I missed that I wanted to post about but I don't remember what ............

Italian Pasted Post

These are some thoughts kinda joking around but kinda serious from the other website I'm on ... Maybe these thoughts are because of the Italian Festival that has some company name in front of it that use to be Sorento I think .......

If anyone reads this ? Hope It doesn't offend but with The Italian Festival (Think I'll go Saturday) I'm not but I've wondered if I have some Italian in me and here is why I don't like Corned Beef yuck nor cabbage now granted I don't like Ricotta or Cream cheese ( No Cannoli or calzones or macaroni salad ) but other then that I love Noodles and Sauce (Ok maybe Olive Garden Italian cause I love all the great bottled sauces HA)(Michellinas or what ever makes so decent ones sometimes lunch all week) , oh and Pizza (all kinds including Italian White, Old World sauce & Sicilian ) but who doesn't HA ... But some how Never watched any of The Godfather movies (have on tape) but all sorts of "Mob Movies" or "Crime Movies" Oh but wait maybe it is just that I grew up on the west side Yeah that makes more sense cause I couldn't tell you what Gelato is But I'll just add on line I've seen a bunch of amazing pictures and Italy looks amazing

The Sopranos I didn't mention but included could be seen as someone just liking the parts of the culture they know about ... That reminds me I like (cause they are in those movies guessing) like the crooners and think most Irish music is I won't say bad not my thing unless they Rock or Punk it up......

Being from Buffalo I know this is bad but with the fact that it might rain I'm tempted to just skip Italian Festival and go find a Pizza Hut .... When I was a kid they sold Noodles That being said I'm biased I love the taste of Yum Brands Sobe (Miss those glass bottles ) , Pepsi and others like Dew and Kickstart , Lays brands yes doritos and fritos , KFC (Don't eat there any more the smell alone tastes great) and Taco Bell But I think I'll still go and hope to not get wet I think .

But there are some good movies also but I'll go and hopefully do a mobile post and see weather wise what to do once there ..... Who knows maybe I'll just get some deep fried stuff :) That reminds me someone at work says The Fair is going to have Bacon Flavored Lemonade it sounds so gross but I would have to try it right... We shall see but at the end of the day I think in Buffalo we do get a lot of parts of different cultures noodles are starch so maybe that is like how I like Potatoes ????

4th Of July

I admit I'm behind but I do like reading (e:strip) and I ment to post on like Saturday about the Canalside first some youtube videos and what I thought of it .......



one Video that is ....

I have to admit Canalside did bother me some .... I walk in and it turns out you had to use tickets but the place that sells them only had the list of beer so I would have to look at every place decide then get coupons or what ever and they look huge also large sheets the size of like a tablet or maybe even a laptop but that is just me ????

So then I go to Clinton's Dish and they didn't have any burgers ... But I tried what they called a Buffalo Chicken Philly wow it was so tasty really was good ....... So I didn't know how to post Mobile yet so I'll just post some pics from the other camera :)

Not sure if Lance Diamond and Flag Ceremony Translate kinda have to be there but .......
