Some of you may know Kieba Blacklidge - former champion natural bodybuilder who went from vegan to paleo. Also a CRUSHING work-out from natural bodybuilder John Cubit.

John is not paleo, but his work-out kills.

Photos, diet, one-day of work-outs.....

"Medusa" is played on a cigar box guitar (4 strings). Very 1930s approach, but using mid-50s soundscape.

Blue is singing back-up and playing percussion; I'm on vocal, guitar, and foot stomp.

Of course, that's the DEMO. The real thing will be out later this year on our new CD, "Carnival at the Crossroads".

Hi, Dorothy!

Thanx for asking. My web-site will be back soon-line soon and will have a wide range of my work (from bands to commercial work to guest spots, etc).

In the meantime, you can hear my blues duo Alien Blue by going here:

Just wanted y'all to know I've collected a lot of the articles, reviews, interviews, & lessons I've written for other magazines & web-site over the past decade or so, and all of it will be going up at the new Skinny Devil Magazine.

It is mostly a music & arts mag, but there is also a lifestyle section where we'll have several contributors discussing their take on lifestyle, health, fitness, diet, etc....from SAD to raw vegan to routines....alternative meds & lifestyles....

We're still housed at blogspot and up-loading old material (with a few new things tossed in here & there) and still have a LOT of work to do (lay-out, color scheme, proper ad gadgets, etc), but wanted to let y'all know early in case you have any input - especially with regard to the lifestyle section.

If you're interested, check it out:

I eat a TON of kale....almost every day.

I sometimes use it in salads (kale, carrots, maybe some avocado...touch of raw vinegar &/or raw hemp oil) and sometimes I just grab a few big leaves and munch.

Kale rocks, but its an acquired taste. A bit strong for most, so for your family, probably best to work small amounts (chopped very small) into a salad.

Hmmmm.....RP as VP? Interesting thought.

GOP Strategist: Ron Paul Will Be on GOP Ticket

OK...maybe I won;t shoot myself in the face after all. But I'm still pissed off about Santorum.

Santorum? A fucking 3 state sweep for Santorum? Are you kidding me?

I'm going to shoot myself in the face.

Ron Paul's campaign manager said he thinks it will come down to Romney and Ron Paul, since Gingrich and Santorum aren't even on the ballot in multiple states, according to him.

He is correct, though he overstates the case:

Cut $1 trillion year one.

Predicted housing market collapse when no one else saw it coming.

Gets more support than ALL other candidates combined.

Cuts across age, party, gender lines.

Wants to eliminate income tax.

Takes no government pension. Never took gov money (even if he had to work for free) when he was a practicing doctor.

Wants smaller federal government and power back to people & states.

What the hell are YOU waiting for?

Ok, Perry is finally out.  Now it'll be a long drag (maybe not that long) between Gingrich and Santorum.

Bizarre. He was starting to move up in the polls. I wonder what prompted his jump BEFORE the SC primary this Saturday?

as fast as possible:
100 push-ups
100 sit-ups
100 squats

weight work (total body)
5 rounds heavy bag

Hoping things slow down a bit by late February so I can get in some longer work-outs. Plan to add more tabata, running stairs, and other aerobic elements by the end of the month.

Been using Wednesday for a day off or uber-light.

5 sets Total Gym
100 squats
200 calf raises.

Under 15 minutes.

This will likely be my final week posting work-outs here. For those interested & inspired, they can see 80+ pages of work-outs....but it doesn't seem like anyone is interested in posting anymore. If that changes, I'll continue, but barring that, Friday will be the final day.

Is that an ironic joke?  ;) Mormon 2 endorses Mormon 1

Nah. I really thought he'd stay in longer, but more surprised that the 5th most libertarian governor in the nation (according to Cato) and the guy who was taking HUGE shots at Romney would turn around and endorse him rather than Paul or Perry.

Just curious, SD, is one of the reasons why you are so keen on Ron Paul because he would benefit your particular vocation directly, not just in a general economic sense?

How would Ron Paul benefit my vocation? I play guitar for a living. Far as I know, RP doesn't have any plans to subsidize self-employed musicians (hahaha!).

No, I support RP because he is the most libertarian-leaning candidate. I don't see eye-to-eye with RP on everything (I'm so libertarian that I piss off libertarians), but he has worked tirelessly for his entire life in the cause of liberty. That gets not only my respect, but my vote.

YS said:
As if Romney and Paul had a secret arrangement ...So to me it looks like it is all been settled....


There is no doubting that RP is a politician. He is no angel and he is not perfect. That said, I don;t swallow the idea of a secret arrangement. Paul has always been about education, but he is also about changing the republican party and changing America. The best way to spread ideas, as he has often said, "is to win elections".

Breaking news:  Huntsman Says He’s Quitting G.O.P. Race, will endorse Romney.

Game over?

Just heard this. Stunned that he'd endorse Romney.

Game over? Hardly. He was polling LOW in SC.  I suspect his core supporters (a mix of libertarians & moderates) will be split between Romney & Paul.

I'm still awaiting the Perry comeback.

you are overly enthusiastic

I don;t think so. He pulled in almost 25% of the vote to place 2nd in NH.

His polling was at 10% in SC, placing him at 5th. Numbers released TODAY now have him surging....Romney at 29%, Gingrich at 25%, Paul in 3rd at 20%....ALL others at sub-10%. Santorum is history. Perry's only hope is Florida.

If word gets out now that Gingrich's film is BS (it mostly is), he will lose not only his transient numbers, but a large part of his base (as he should - the movie he produced striking Romney is blatant mis-information).

Unless Perry makes a comeback, you're potentially looking at a Romney vs Paul race.

Raw-al: Unfortunately, the game is always changing, so there is no simple explanation (hahaha!). Super Tuesday, however, is the first Tuesday in March when a bunch of states hold primaries. This year, it's March 6, which sees primaries/caucuses by 10 states. Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Mass, ND, OH, OK, Tennessee, Vermont, & Virginia.

YS:  Actually, those ARE good numbers. Fabulous numbers this early on. Also worth noting that NH is a semi-closed primary (meaning it isn't just republicans, but also includes those not registered as dem or rep).

With regard to SC & FL - the polls say one thing NOW, but remember those folks LOVED him early on (and FL especially due to his connection to Bush). If Santorum & Gingrich lose ground before the polls open, those votes will be split between Huntsman, Paul, & Perry. This sets the stage for a Perry return...if he plays his cards right.

Remember, the hard-right won;t vote for Paul or Romney or Huntsman. They have to go somewhere, and without Gingrich or Santorum, there is only one other choice.
