Snow Shoveling

This is total bullshit.

Two weeks ago I was out running in shorts and a t-shirt (click HERE) and now here I am up to my Charlie Brown’s in white shit.

You suck, Mother Nature!

Aw well.  I’ll just chalk it up as a strength workout*.

Anyway, my mellow listening pleasure while shoveling the driveway to stop from totally Hulking out in anger is the new ‘MARS‘  soundtrack by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.


National Geographic Channel and Milan Records partner with the original Doom n Gloom-sters to deliver a cosmic title song and score for the original soundtrack of MARS, the network’s six-part global event series that predicts an international crew of astronauts’ critical, maiden mission to Mars.

Directed by Everardo Gout, who formerly collaborated with Cave and Ellis on other projects; executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard; and starring an ensemble cast, MARS tells the story of mankind’s first successful mission to Mars, human colonization and the precarious purpose of becoming an interplanetary series.

Cave and Ellis deliver a pitch-perfect score to complement the thrilling yet daunting mission to a desolate alien planet in which the human species struggle to survive, thrive and forge an existence in this new world.Essentially, the show is ‘Das Boot‘  in space and understanding the emotional journey of the astronauts on this Martian mission.

Yeah, yeah, on my end today it’s total eerie mellowness was simply ideal for the bleak, near post-apocalyptic storm that is currently waging down on my driveway.

I may as well have been on Mars.

*Disclaimer before my wife calls me out as she loves to do, only half  of the driveway was actually tackled by hand before I dragged out the snow blower.  Fuck it.

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”.
