Easy Spin

Can I just say how unimpressed I an to be spinning indoors?  It’s October, autumn is in full bloom, the temperatures are perfect for cycling…and it’s raining bloody cats and dogs out.

FML.

So being the stubborn sod I am, despite the fact that I’d rather be doing just about anything else other than sawing my bollocks off on a spin bike at the gym, I’m cinching up the ‘ol apple sack and making sure I’m getting my planned ride in one way or another.  The good news is, that I have something awesome to listen to:  the Kills ‘Live at Third Man Records‘ album.

This is pretty much the last of the Third Man Records albums that I have.  Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart are two of the most talented and creative people on the planet and these 8 songs were recorded direct-to-acetate on October 10th, 2012 in the infamous Blue Room at the Jack White‘s Third Man Records studio.

I don’t know what else to say but that this album is the total shit; a perfect accompaniment for a hot, sweaty 45 minute tempo spin.  I could list the albums highlights sure but, truthfully, every song is abso-fucking-lutely incredible!  Had I know that this album was this good I wouldn’t have minded so much heading to the gym to spin in the first place.

I mean, don’t get me wrong: spinning sucks…especially when I’m not ready to be indoors just yet.  But this album made it all that much more bearable (minus the ass hat who broke my rhythm and concentration mid-interval to ask me “so, you like spinning eh?”.  I swear, if it was acceptable to punch stupid people in the face I would have laid this guy out then and there.

Anyway, morons aside, I loved this album and might have to dig up more by these Kills in the near future.

About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
