Weekend Fun – 30 October 2016

Samhain draws near…can you feel it in the air? I certainly can! It’s a good thing.

Time to talk sports for a bit: Game 5 of the MLB 2016 World Series is today, and will be played in Cleveland Chicago. The Cleveland Indians lead the series 3 – 1 right now. Both teams have been phenomenal so far, but Cleveland has been dominant. If they win today, it will be their first championship won since 1948 – so, the hunger is real! Fans of “the Cubbies” certainly looked glum after last night’s 7 – 2 loss, and I definitely feel their pain…I’ve had that expression multiple times when watching my Seattle Mariners!

Since the baseball season will be over soon, it’s time for football! My Seattle Seahawks take on the New Orleans Saints today – I get a double dose of sports, LOL! I like the Saints and usually root for them, but the Seahawks are my home team, so…sorry, Saints! Gotta support my home team, win or lose.

Time to get some stew started, then I’ll do some computer gaming before (and possibly during) the football and baseball games – time for a completely relaxed, lazy day! I’m even going to live-stream my gaming sessions, which you can find by clicking on this link right here. You can also find it in my ‘Multimedia Links’ page on my blog, if you’re inclined to look at some of my other content. The sessions will be occurring on and off throughout the day, so be patient if I’m taking a short break…at least I have a decent picture displayed when I’m offline! There is also a Samhain / Hallowe’en theme going on in-game, so I hope that you enjoy it when you see what it is…

If you get bored while waiting for the gaming to begin, check out these sports-related videos! Just a bit of silliness and music to amuse and entertain. With that, I’m off – have a great day, all!

Friday Milestone…100 Followers!!!

I am ecstatic, elated, humbled and honoured! After grinding in my MMORPG from 2:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. PDT (-8 GMT) and taking a much-needed nap after completing an in-game campaign, I woke up to this wonderful notification: 100 WordPress followers…wow!

I’m speechless, LOL – I didn’t think I would reach 100 followers before the end of the year, especially since I sometimes seem to lose as many followers as I gain! There is at least one person who has been here from day one…I STILL SEE YOU, HERNIE!!! For now, I’ll simply post five in-game screenshots from the past 24 hours:

…also, here are five great songs to start the weekend off right – enjoy!

Blessed Samhain…2013!

A merry Samhain to you, dear readers! The first frost of the year happened here a couple of days ago; the night was clear and cold, and morning saw frost on the grass and the rooftops. Mist rose thick over the rivers and streams…a perfect Autumn morning! The rain returned today so it is a bit warmer than it was the other day – cloud cover helps.

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox on their World Series victory! Fantastic games…I hoped that they would win, simply because they are in the American League. My A.L. Mariners couldn’t do it, and it was impressive to see the Red Sox go from “worst to first” – I always root for the underdog! They did pretty damned good. Baseball season is over for the year…looking forward to next season! I wonder what the Mariners lineup will look like…

I’ll get back to blogging as usual over the weekend – for now, enjoy some tunes!

Alice Cooper: “This House is Haunted

Oingo Boingo: “Dead Man’s Party

The Hooters: “All You Zombies

Rob Zombie: “Great American Nightmare

Screamin’ Jay Hawkins: “Voodoo

Blessed Samhain…

First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy, from the Caribbean to the Great Lakes and beyond…take care of yourselves and each other. Lend a hand when you can. Anyone and everyone, if you have the means to assist those in need, please do so – I’m in the process of doing what I can from my tiny corner. Those of us who are far removed from the destruction – count your blessings today. Hold your loved ones close, and reach out to those who are far away. Stay connected – it’s vital!

Today marks All Hallows’ Eve…an evening to honor lost loved ones. My thoughts are with a couple of people who also loved bikes, and now ride the skies…R.I.P., Dave and Ron – you guys were taken too soon; there was still so much riding to do! Ah, me…my friends are my family, so it cuts deep when one passes away. I smile at the fond memories of them, though – they were good people, flawed and dear. Ride on and ride free, my brothers!

Finally, here are three good songs for today! Enjoy…

Bobby “Boris” Pickett & The Cryptkickers: “The Monster Mash

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack: “The Time Warp

Alice Cooper: “Sick Things
