Monoprice Lightning Cables

These cables are great phones actually charge at 2Amps.  Should have gotten these much earlier rather than using the slow 1.50 cables I had.  Bonus that they have a lifetime warranty and got these cables on sale for less $5.


6/24 Workout

12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps of:

75 lb Barbell Thrusters
Burpees (Jump over 6″ foam roller after each)

(12 descending sets for a total of 78 reps for each exercise)

I cheated and didn’t do the 8 rep round.  Didn’t want people to wait too long for me.  Still took me 57 min to do the rest.  No stamina as I’m out of breath after doing burpees and the thrusters



CoC Split

Sad Day,  Our CoC clan, SilentButDeadly kinda split into two to LoudButFriendly.  We lost like 15 people.

VPN: Private Internet Access vs Torguard

I’ve been using Private Internet Access (PIA) for the last 2 years and it is OK.  Couldn’t access some streaming sites with it cause it always resulted in some kind of URL error.  Switched over to Torguard last week and so far haven’t seen that same error.  Therefore I’m pretty happy with Torguard especially since I got it at their April sale price.  In addition I like how Torguard shows you the public IP and how much data has been transferred.  Haven’t tested for speed and don’t have an quantitative stats but Torguard does seem faster.

Mos Def @ Yost

Saw Most Def 12/22 at Yost.

There were a couple of songs that were pretty great and he did his freestyle stuff.  Think it was pretty good for a hip hop show but think a lot of my friends weren’t into it.   Kinda bummed he didn’t do ms fat booty.

Just don’t think hip hop shows are that good compared to rock shows.

Audio Book: 1356 by Bernard Cornwell

Liked it. Thought the reader was very good and brought the story to life. It’s a medieval times type novel that involves a war between the English, France, and Scotland.
Lots of battles so if you’re into sword fighting and other type of medieval melees you’ll probably like it.
