BOOK OF THE WEEK
This is a humorous book with a sprinkling of good hardcore gym advice throughout. However, I’m not sure you can appreciate this book unless you have gone to a hardcore gym or plan to go to a hardcore gym.
What is a hardcore gym? For starters there must be at least one picture of Arnold, preferably more. And there must be deadlift platforms.
For years bros, meatheads, and gym rats around the world have posed pressing questions: What can you bench? Can I skip leg day? What goes in this protein shake? And, importantly, do you even lift, bro? At long last, answers to these questions and more can be found in one handy volume – The Swoly Bible, written by the Internet’s favorite gym expert/literary genius, Dom Mazzetti.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
We watched this film Halloween night and found it entertaining and far from being super scary, plus Alice Cooper appears in the film.
Dark Shadows (2012)
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
On August 1, 1981, MTV: Music Television goes on the air for the first time ever, with the words (spoken by one of MTV’s creators, John Lack): “Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll.” The Buggles’ “Video Killed the Radio Star” was the first music video to air on the new cable television channel, which initially was available only to households in parts of New Jersey.

ART OF THE WEEK
Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula Flowers
I was in Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula a few weeks back and had to stop to take a photo of these unusual flowers.
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
I once sat second row ringside and saw George Foreman box and I also saw the great Archie Moore, who was in George’s corner during this particular fight in the Detroit area.
Although one of the best boxers of all time, he was so much more than just a boxer. Foreman stopped fighting and became an ordained minister, initially preaching on street corners before becoming the reverend at the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in Houston, and devoting himself to his family and his congregation. He also opened a youth center that bears his name.
Rev. George Foreman
When I was taking yoga classes before the pandemic hit, we did this towards the end of every session.
This seems like a good approach.
I don’t think anyone should have a billion dollars, because it is way too much unchecked power. However, the vast majority of people who are successful have worked very hard and made great sacrifices to achieve that success.
