Three is a Magic Number

Cobains for the delay on posting the BB as YHC was trying to figure out how to do it in the new era of the website.  One of the benefits of being a dual citizen of both F3 Winston-Salem and F3 Metro is the fact that YHC can reuse and recycle workouts from the Dash down here in the Queen City and it’s fresh and new and exciting for the veterans here in Charlotte.  Well, maybe not fresh and new and exciting, but at least it wasn’t a retread of something we’ve down down here before.

We kicked off things with German supergroup Trio and then suffered through a beatdown while @Foo tried to figure out what the playlist theme was.  Through 45 minutes of pain, he wasn’t able to come up with the fact that all of the songs in the playlist were recorded and performed by three piece bands.  For the record, a guitar, a bass and a drum set is all a band really needs to generate a lot of sound.  And a few exercises and a little bit of running is all YHC needs to generate a lot of sweat.

Guesses on the playlist theme included chronological order (materially accurate but not the intended theme), kicka$$ drum parts (@Foo always thinks it’s all about the drummers).

On the third lap of the MacDeuce, YHC thought about @Money and he was probably pi$$ed about the running and could hear the #WarDaddy reminding me in the voice inside my head that “there’s no running at Core”.  Fortunately, @DoReMi was not present so there’s not much he can do about it.  And he has kept the streak alive of skipping YHC’s Qs.

Wake Forest Class of 1990 represented with YHC, @Foo and @Shatner all in attendance.  No sign of @Raider.

#Kotters to @Ice9.  Good to see you.

@SwingState is drumming up interest in 24 Hours of Booty.  Or at least in HaywoodStock/Fest.  @Torpedo and @BlowDart are chopping down hickory trees to contribute to the effort.

Here’s the playlist:

  • Da Da Da (I Don’t Love You You Don’t Love Me Aha Aha Aha) [Trio]
  • White Room [Cream]
  • Purple Haze [Jimi Hendrix]
  • Tom Sawyer [Rush]
  • La Grange [ZZ Top]
  • Karn Evil 9 1st Impression, Pt. 2 [Emerson, Lake & Palmer]
  • De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da [The Police]
  • Don’t Want To Know If You Are Lonely [Husker Du]
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit [Nirvana]
  • Basket Case [Green Day]
  • All The Small Things [blink-182]
  • One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces [Ben Folds Five]


24 Hours of Booty next week.  Sign up to ride and/or donate.

Fall Expansion:  Chicago (September 23), St. Louis (October 14), Austin (October 28)

Thanks for the keys, Foo.  Honor and a privilege to lead.
