Welcome to The Blog About Nothing coming live from the freezer that is New York City. It’s about seventeen degrees outside right now and people are bundled up so much that they can barely walk down the street. It’s cold. Very, very, very cold. So, I’m inside, bundled up and listening to this new Kid Cudi album.
Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ is the sixth studio album from one of my favorite artists. I’m a big Kid Cudi fan because I find him musically talented but also relatable. He’s also not afraid to take risks. His last album, was more of an alternative rock album, but on this current album he has made a return to his genre shifting roots. He’s a hard artist to pin down, and I think that’s why I mess with his music so much.
As I’ve stated in the past, I respect those who seek to defy convention and Cudi is that type. Also, he is coming off a stint in rehab to deal with his demons. I’ve blogged about that in the past as well, but I’m rooting for him. Hope this is the first step on the way back. Good luck.
I won’t keep you long this week, readers. When I started this blog I solely talked about sports. Then I started having some issues in my personal life, and I used this space as a place to vent, and sometimes heal. I prefer to speak from a personal place, because I feel my words are real when I do that, but sometimes the well runs dry. I’m alright right now. I’ve got a birthday coming up, and Christmas is around the corner.
However, there’s nothing in me that I want to explore this week so I will pivot this week’s edition back towards an individual from the sporting world.
All I have to say this week is Rest In Peace to Turner Sports NBA sideline reporter, Craig Sager. Sager who passed away this week at the age of 65 after a fight with Leukemia might have been best known for his colorful suits but his infectious personality made games memorable. He made you pay attention to the sideline reporter. His suits obviously caught your attention before he opened his mouth, but his knowledge of the game and his fun loving personality had you hooked.
From the first moment, you remembered him. He will be missed.
As I said I didn’t have much to say this week. I’ve kept it brief. Thanks for reading.
