🔊TAS 📻Hey Vincent What Band is That? 🔮Vinny and The Girls™️ 🕯@kyle.elysse 🐺Coco and Ellie
To say I’m proud of this guy is an understatement. Tony and I have been friends for quite some time. He was one of my first friends when I moved to Albany, and he quickly became one of my best. He has seen me at my lowest, and helped me rise to become my best. From recon to TAS to his current gig with champs; he has been a friend, a tour companion, and a real confidant. He introduced me to WoW, reintroduced me to wrestling, and helped me gain many friends along the way - all while having my back like no other. Seeing him grow and persevere through the past 10 or so years has been awesome, and I’m happy to see him finally smile on stage. To all the real ones; hang on to them - they are few and far between. Love you, brother. Lok’tar ogar; dark lady watch over you. (📸: @rachelliottphotography)
Getting the urge to rip some gigs. Luckily tour is like two weeks away. Who am I seeing? Who is going to take the mic from me so I don’t have to give it to @tsmith678? Who is going to sweat more than Devin? Who is going to win the battle of the photo dudes between @easterxdaily and @gabethepigeon? TUNE IN AND FIND OUT! (btw Errick took this pic).
Chris came up yesterday to go hiking... and it rained. Instead we did what we do best - ate bbq and drank coffee until we saw a break in the clouds. Instead of wasting a day languishing indoors we took advantage when advantageous and got the fuck on our bikes. We timed it perfectly too, and got home as soon as it started downpouring. I’m grateful I have a friend like Chris. One of these days we will get the fuck up a mountain without the danger of getting hit by lightning.

I have an entire folder of photos dedicated to Kyle taking pictures of things.
I’ve known this guy since 2006, and we have been friends ever since. He is one of the most talented human beings i have ever met, and being in a band with him makes everything about touring better. Happy birthday, @griffinlanda; may the beers flow like water, the skittles rain from the sky, and the cheez-its pave the road to your nothing-but-candy birthday cake. ❤️ (I think @easterxdaily took this photo).
Thank you for being a frieeeeeeeeeend. Traveled down the road and back agaaaaaain. Your heart is true, you’re a paaaaaaal and a confidaaaant 🎶 (📸: @rachelliottphotography)
I love being outside. I love riding my bike. I love hiking. I love sitting in the shade. (Catch me sitting in my driveway with Coco at any hour of the day.)Maybe it has something to do with living in an area where 6 to 7 months out of the year I’m trapped indoors. From May to October I try to spend every minute I can NOT inside. Maybe you live somewhere that has beautiful weather all year round - respect it, enjoy it as much as you can. I’m not saying don’t play video games and don’t watch the office for the 48th time, but every once in a while peak your head out and see what’s going on in nature. Ride, run, walk, swim, hike, jump, climb, fart - anything. Grab a companion or do it alone. Plan a trip or just wing it! No matter how hard you go don’t forget to pause for a second and take it all in. Sometimes the world is a hellhole, but once in a while it can be pretty great; and it is extremely important to remind ourselves of that or we may go insane. Now stop reading this stupidly long rant and go play outside!
The amount of appreciation I have for this person is unfathomable. I don’t believe in fate or luck - I don’t subscribe to mythical forces bringing people together. I do - however - believe in right place right time, and being there for someone in their time of need. Kyle and i found each other at the exact moment we needed someone the most, and I am forever grateful. She assisted in pulling me out of a decade-long funk, and helped me look at life how I used to. I’ve thrown away all grudges, reunited with so many old friends, and reinvented myself without actually changing much. It’s never a challenge and it’s always a wonder to be around her. I am in awe of her more often than not, and words can’t describe the vastness of how I truly feel. My travel partner, my Mario kart main competition, my best friend, and my light in the darkness. For all the memories we have made, and all the new ones to come. Surround yourselves with people who care unconditionally, and you’ll start to care back. (Thanks for the impromptu photo @rachelliottphotography).
Summer breeeeze makes me feel fiiiiiiiine. 🎶
BACK ON MY BULLSHIT. After eating like an absolute asshole for the past month or so, it is time to put myself back on keto. BUT just because I’m trying to eat better doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice taste or enjoyment of food. I love to cook, I love getting creative with food, and limiting what you can use pushes the creativity even further. Last night I surprised @kyle.elysse with deviled eggs after specifically telling her “I’m never fucking making those”. To accompany the appetizer we had, I whipped up some keto fajitas - or KETOJITAS as @northxstreetxmeatheadx24 coined them. Some fajita style chicken, steak, and veggies with guac on a bed of riced cauliflower. Normally if something is good, Kyle will say “yup. Add this to the list”, but last night she was too busy eating to say anything. I’m back, baby. EAT GOOD. FEEL GOOD. BE GOOD.
