- My schedule is so out of whack it ain't funny.
- At least I've been able to get to sleep since my neighbor shut off the propane cannon.
- I saw The Watchmen last night. Great movie, but it was slow paced and hard to follow.
- Minimum wage goes up next week. My wage stays the same. Man that pisses me off.
- I've fallen into a bad cycle of buying gas the day before the price drops. Man that pisses me off.
- I found a GREAT deal on some farm implements on Craigslist. The guy sold them an hour before I called. Man that pisses me off.
- I really need to buy new glasses. Man that... well, you know.

If you put enough tin foil on your antenna and hold your head just right you can pick up Rational Radio 1360AM KMNY. It's sort of a cross between the old Live 105 and Air America formats. That's where you'll find Big Dick Hunter and his Wild Ass Circus.
BDH has had to tone it down just a tad and rename it The Richard Hunter Show. But he has added an old familiar sidekick, Boyd's own Greg "The Hammer" Williams. I listened to part of the show this week. Say what you will about Greggo and his personal problems, he makes great radio.
This is his last, last chance. He was lucky enough to have a true friend like BDH that would give him another shot. Hopefully BDH can help Greggo thru his drug problems. Like Ted Nugent, Richard Hunter is and always has been clean and sober. His lifestyle views are not the norm as well. Perhaps he can show Greggo how to live a happy life without chemicals.
So far, the show sounds excellent. They have chemistry and an open forum. It's very entertaining. It reminds you of the early days of "The Hardline" without the nasal whining of Mike Rhyner. Instead of revolving around sports, it revolves around current events. The 4-6pm show flys by and leaves you wanting more. BDH shows his usual skills at evoking deep thoughts and opinions from listeners and Greggo... well he's Greggo with that Greggo wit and wisdom. If you'd like to hear more from him than whatever contractually obligated drops they are playing to death at The Ticket, you need to tune in.
Let's hope this finally is the turning point for The Hammer. If not you can say you were listening the day that he melted down again.
Also landing at KMNY are Live 105 refugees Pugs & Kelly. They can be heard weekday afternoons from 1-4pm leading into The Richard Hunter Show.
In case you're not able to properly configure your tin foil but you'd still like to listen to something besides sports, news or right wing politics, you can stream KMNY live at www.RationalRadio.org

Sources are reporting Jeremy Mayfield tested positive AGAIN for meth after a random drug test at his home on July 6th. NASCAR is asking a Federal Judge to reinstate the ban on Mayfield. Along with this new failed drug test comes the incriminating comments from Mayfield's stepmother.
Lisa Mayfield claims Jeremy used to cook his own meth back in the day. After it became too difficult to make, he began to buy his stash. Lisa says she witnessed Jeremy snort crank over 30 times, including before races.
Never underestimate a stepmother's skill at throwing you under the bus. Trust me on this.
Of course Jeremy claims this is all a huge mistake and people are out to get him. He's correct. It IS a big mistake, the problem is with who made it. Jeremy can kiss what was left of his racing career goodbye. Bobby Wooten, general manager of Mayfield Motorsports, resigned saying he does not think the team will ever return to the track. He was he last remaining employee at Mayfield Motorsports.
The reason I say it all makes sense now is clear. CrazyEx#3 is a HUGE Jeremy Mayfield fan.

Because the federal courts have ruled that federal laws preempt the state's anti-blocking statute, TxDOT does not have any statutory or regulatory authority to compel a railroad train to unblock a crossing.
I was paying close attention to whatever was on TV, altho now I could'nt tell you what it was. It just does'nt seem that important now that I narrowly escaped death. But, I digress. So I'm zoning out to the TV calm, relaxed and shed of the pressures of work. When out of the corner of my eye I spot something moving.
I turn my head to focus and upon closer inspection I have a
I immediately went to Defcon 1 and authorized a full scale chemical attack by Homeland Security. I sprayed the entire house inside and out with enough Ortho Max to kill Peter Parker on his best day. I don't know if it was the adrenaline from the initial freakout, arachnophobia or the contact high from the Ortho talking, but I was constantly feeling something crawling on me for the rest of the night.
The colors did seem more vibrant watching Adult Swim. Pretty sure that was the Ortho.

Station a DOT trooper at the scalehouse (or exit) of the crusher and do not allow an overweight truck to leave. See if accidents drop.
I can't disagree. I know I should stop smoking for the sake of my health. It's really bad for me mmkay?The problem is I really enjoy it. I've been around cigarette smoke my whole life. My Mom smoked L&M's and my Dad smoked Camel's. There was never (NEVER!!!) so much as a cracked window when we were in the car. That would let the a/c out!
I've been a nicotine addict since the 60's. That's a hard habit/environment to escape! As nasty and repugnant of a habit as it is, just the slightest whiff of nicotine is a siren's song to the senses. It's worse than Wimpy at Herdburgers!
I quit once in '79 then backslid after a traumatic event. I quit again in 2007, but restarted a few months later after another traumatic event.
Now, I'm wondering if I honestly have any incentive to stop. The woman I loved is dead, I have no kids and there is no one depending upon me to survive.
Is there any reason for me not to go full Hedonist? I really enjoy smoking. But then again, I am a bad influence. There's also a rumor that I've indulged in hard spirits originating from Kentucky and herbal remedies from Maui.

- My schedule is pretty jacked up for most of this month. Everybody wants to go on vacation in July.
- I am glad to see the rain! But, the humidity is a killer.
- I know a young man going thru boot camp for the National Guard. They've added a new wrinkle since I went thru way back in the day. If he receives a letter and the address is messed up (those military addresses can be complicated) he has to do extra push-ups. I can just see his brother writing him 10 letters a day and screwing up every single one on purpose.
- Bill Weber got booted from the TNT broadcast booth just hours before the New Hampshire race. Apparently, Webber was in a "loud public confrontation" in a hotel lobby. Whoever is responsable for that decision, thank you! It took Ralph Sheheen a few laps to get in the groove with Wally Dallenbach and Kyle Petty, but once he did they called a very enjoyable race.
- I've disliked Bill Weber since he was on ESPN. He's arrogant and annoying.
- Speaking of NASCAR did you see Daytona? That was an incredible finish! Tony Stewart is on a roll this year. I just hope his luck holds out during The Chase.

I know I'm no Liberally Lean, I don't have his dedication. I'm pretty sure I could give ol Barron a run for his money in the crazy exwife department. But is that really a race anyone wants to win?
Justin Timberlake is hit gold! Bring it on down to Plasticville is the #1 viewed page on The South 40. So here's a
I was listening to the radio yesterday when I heard a commercial about open drag racing this Friday night at Texas Motor Speedway. I love open drags! I haven't been to one in ages. Unfortunately, I have to work (as usual) and can't make it.
The races are sponsored by Scion so I'm sure there will be tons of small cars there. Altho I'm more of a big car, big engine kinda guy I can't help but think how may heads would be spinning if I rolled up in my Carry!
Do not judge a book by it's cover. Yes, it's tiny and only has a 660 cc engine. But it has impressive acceleration and a top speed near 80mph. The heats are going to be set by class and I'm pretty sure I'd be the only one in my class. You don't have to explain all that when you show everyone your trophy from TMS!
Also on the local racing newsfront, Boyd Raceway will be hosting a huge Bullring Blowout on Friday night. If you've never watched live dirt track racing, I highly recommend attending. There will be IMCA Modified, Hobby Stock, Stock, Sport Mod and Mini Stock races. There's a huge fireworks show following the racing. Fun for the whole family.
