Gorguts - Obscura

26 Jan, 2019 - 2 minutes
I shall reborn as a faceless one Darkly splendid world confinement in rapture I remembered hearing about Gorguts in the 90s. I probably heard them on the local college radio station that had some metal shows that play all sorts of stuff. Between that and Napster that’s how I discovered most of what I listen to now. In the Napster days I couldn’t get into death metal as much. It was more doom back then.

Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris

25 Sep, 2018 - 1 minutes
Lykathea Aflame’s Elvenefris is one that I’ve read about and from the little bit I could check it out online I knew I had to eventually find it. Death metal isn’t all that popular and a lot of times it’s not easy to find. I guess the best way to put it would be to call it progressive brutal death metal.

Kettlebell Kings Kettle Bell

29 Aug, 2018 - 3 minutes
I’ve been wanting to pick up a 32kg kettle to use at home for quite a while now. I just never got around to actually doing it due to a bunch of other stuff going on. We’ve had a few CFF kettle bells for a few years and they’ve been ice except the smooth coating get super slippery when your hands are sweaty. Chalk help a lot with that. The ones at the gym have chipped but they’re abused much more than ours will be and besides that it’s no big deal as long the handle is smooth.

Carson Magnifier

With my low vision, magnifiers are definitely one of those things I can never have too many of. I prefer small ones I can easily put in my pocket and take wherever I go whether it be in the house or out and about. I’ve used little cheap blue ones that Molly got me for years but over time I’ve lost some of them. I had 5 at one point but I can think of at least two times that one wound up laying in the woods while geocaching.

Acid Bath

She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair ith blood on her hands Into the sun she stares Acid Bath might be one of my favorite bands of all time. Dax Rigg’s Darkness makes the music and I think the heavier music suits his voice better than the stuff that he does now. His more recent stuff is really good but I think Acid Bath is better for his voice.

Dystopia

15 Jan, 2018 - 2 minutes
Falling, falling from my oppression God where are you now Last year I rediscovered Dystopia. I’d heard stuff from Human=Garbage it on college radio stations back in the mid 90s but never picked up on who it was to search for it. (The internet makes finding stuff you hear so much easier these days) I recently heard it again on a streaming metal station online. It actually got me to hunt down a few other sludgy things I heard back then.

Bausch & Lomb Magnifier

The thing about being visually impaired like I am is magnifying glasses are one thing you can’t have too many of. I’m always on the lookout for new ones to try for a reasonable price. Sure I know they’re not the best quality but for my use that really isn’t all that important. I use them all the time and wind up loosing them or breaking them anyways. One day while searching Amazon I came across the Bausch & Lomb Coddington Magnifier.

Donegan Magnifier

Magnifying glasses are for sure one of those items I cannot have enough of. I like little fold able ones I can keep in my pocket and have handy where ever I may be whether it be to look at my gps while geocaching or read a menu when we’re out to eat. While searching on amazon I came across the Donegan V341-T Triple Folding Pocket Magnifier. These had great magnification and size and were just what I was looking for.

My Creative Zen Vision W

13 Jul, 2007 - 3 minutes
Molly gave me a Creative Zen Vision W for my birthday this year. I am impressed with how well I can see the screen. It’s bright even at 50% back light and has good contrast. That’s important to me because with my old player I could hardly see it with it’s pretty bad contrast. The screen is huge too. I have the 60 GB version which I would’ve preferred anyways. I’ve put everything on there and still have over 10 GB to spare.

My Thoughts Garmin 60csx

8 Feb, 2007 - 3 minutes
I know it’s not exactly new anymore but I thought I’d post my thoughts on it. I picked one up last August after my old Magellan Meridian Color was wearing out. After falling on some rocks near the Appalachian trail on NJ in a down pour the screen fogged up. I figured it was time for a new one. Molly needed a GPS because her etrex legend was falling apart and I decided it would be easier if we had the same ones.
