Hell's Kitchen Radio #488: God Save Radio Valencia
September 5, 2022 8:00pm
Take care of your back. Seriously, you really need to watch how you're treating it. And your head. And stay hydrated. You're getting older. This is the only life you have. You only die once. You need to keep this vessel of yours moving for a few more years. Take care of it.
I lost 30 pounds between April and September 2021. I really needed to. I had hit about 205 and knew that my body wasn't happy. My spirit was pretty solid, since I do my best to focus on things that bring me joy, but my body wasn't having it. I was packing away the calories. This isn't some commercial. I'm not going to talk about the program I used. You can comment here and I'll respond, but I'm just talking here about how important it is to maintain physical health, especially as the climate continues to worsen. We are going to need our bodies to be in the best shape as possible.
As for music, there's always music. And here's some really great music! I start out the show with some brand spankin' new King Gizzard. This 18+ minute track is a real barn-burner. Throughout the show I pepper in songs in celebration of Labor Day, which I also celebrate on May 1st, since that's the real Labor Day, as created here in the good ol' USofA!
There are a lot of "classics" during these two hours. Once you hear them you're going to be digging for more, and I can't blame you!
As of this writing, Queen Elizabeth II has died, and I could not care less! God Save the Queen my ass. Fuck Imperialism, and Fuck Colonialism. I don't believe in an afterlife, but if I did...
Enjoy and please share!
