Weights

From the bike to the weights; from gungy-punk rock to, well, whatever you call this – ‘True Detective (Music from the HBO Series‘ by Lera Lynn.

Talk about a juxtaposition.

These tunes were culled from the ‘True Detective’ album which also features songs by Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and, yes, Lera Lynn.

…17 minutes worth to be exact, making this the perfect soundtrack for a 20 minute quickie with the heavy iron.  It’s certainly a little more downbeat than I would customary prefer for a strength building workout but, meh, what ya gonna do?

There’s something dark and creepy and beautifully moving about this album, and Lera Lynn particularly.  There are 5 tracks here in total: ‘My Least Favorite Life‘, ‘The Only Thing Worth Fighting For‘, ‘A Church In Ruin‘, ‘It Only Takes One Shot‘, and ‘Lately‘.

Pretty happy sounding titles, right?

I’ll definitely have to check out more by this Doom n’ Gloom high priestess in the future.

Just maybe not in the gym.

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”.
