Dave And The International Weightlifting Community Work Things Out
Well, it looks like things are being sorted out between me and the international weightlifting community (see a couple posts ago to find out what I am referring to). As if it weren’t strange enough that people on a message board about weightlifting would even be talking about me in the first place, now I find that they even saw the earlier post in which I talk about the fact that they were talking about me. Are you following this? Okay, good. Anyway, since my earlier post about my ongoing battle between me and the international weightlifting community over at powerandbulk.com, I have received an e-mail from someone who runs the site letting me know that they don’t actually hate me. I’ve also gotten some nice notes from a bunch of other people who post on that message board- including the guy who started the whole thread about how much I suck in the first place- and I have to admit, I’m actually kind of touched. And as if all that weren’t enough to keep things magical, I went back over to the powerandbulk.com message boards and found that someone had posted pictures of me, Rosie O’Donnell, and Paul McCartney all together to help further support their claims that I look like the love child of the popular Beatle and the former talk show host turned full-time lesbian (which is awesome). I hate to admit it, but I do see the resemblance.
Anyway, I guess what I’m trying to say is that I have made my peace with these people. And if the international weightlifting community and I can get along, then maybe we ALL can get along. Hey, I’m just saying. Until next time- take care of yourselves...and each other. And why not have a protein shake while you’re at it?
In other news, this week I started playing guitar for my friend Phil’s band Heather. They are an awesome band that combines the magic of AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, and other sweet bands like that and pretty much rocks ass in general. I’ve always wanted to just play guitar in a band instead of being the lead singer/guitar player or bass player/backup singer as I’ve done up until now (though I love doing that stuff too), so I’m having a lot of fun. Best of all, I get to put all my years of practicing scales and stuff into good use since they have me attempting to play big crazy solos in a lot of the songs. Watch your ass, Yngwie- there’s a new sherriff in town. Anyway, I hope they don’t kick me out or anything. We’re playing a bunch of shows soon, so if you catch wind of them you should totally show up and start rocking, rocking ‘til it hurts.
In still other news, I just finished taping a bunch of shows with my close personal friend, the lovely in every way Karen “Duff” Duffy, whom you might remember from such films as “Dumb and Dumber” and some other ones (she was also a VJ on MTV and is a really pretty Revlon spokesmodel). The show is called “Random Acts of Duff” and will be on TLC aka the Learning Channel this fall. It is quite excellent and I had a super fun time working on it. I will go into elaborate detail and tell all sorts of hilarious anecdotes from the set some time soon, so brace yourself.
Hmmm, what else? I think that’s about it for now. Maybe I’ll go check in over at the powerandbulk.com message boards and see what the latest is with my new pack of friends. And then it’s off to crunch class.
