Sick with a cold, tired from < 3 hours of sleep, headache from 8:30 AM exam. I wanted to quit a bunch of times. We're all human.
The best song period today was Anger Storm by Steel Seal. This reduced my headache significantly. Also, my favourite Manowar tracks helped.

On recent events in CT

"You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here's why.

It's because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single victim of Columbine? Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he'll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN's article says that if the body count "holds up", this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the k

iller's face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer's identity? None that I've seen yet. Because they don't sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you've just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man's name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem."

Training Notes
It seems the gym is getting more busy as classes have ended. It's driving me nuts. I feel like everything goes so damn slow that I could sleep in between my sets. The noise. arg. The looks. Arg. The 'music'. ARG.
If it was removed painlessly, I would give up my left nut to just train in peace. No bullshit music, no irritating people, no silly shit. Just give me an empty 2-car garage, and a sizable budget (several thousand dollars) (power rack, a few bars, plates, bench, chalk, sled or prowler or weighted vest) and leave me be.
