A Review of the book Mustaine by Dave Mustaine and reviewed by Ken David Stewart

At certain times, during the last two weeks, I have been listening to Dave Mustaine’s autobiography on an audiobook platform. I usually don’t enjoy reading rockstar biographies or autobiographies as they are usually drunkalogs or drugalogs. Although the book Mustaine does not avoid these topics, it doesn’t dwell on. I admire Dave Mustaine for taking the responsibility for his own actions and I appreciate his honesty and his willingness to be real. The narrator of the book, Tom Weyland is excellent.Dave’s stories from childhood are very chilling even for a heavy metal rockstar. I also enjoyed hearing about Dave Mustaine’s time with Metallica told from Mustaine’s point of view. There is much more I can say about this book/audiobook, but I don’t want to throw in any spoilers. I definitely recommend this autobiography to any fan of Megadeth or heavy metal music.

Alligators in the Sewers Episode Seven by Ken David Stewart

Episode Seven

Sam was quite startled when he heard the knock on the door of his truck. He had been reading the sports section and was having a Walter Mitty moment. He was imagining that he was the New York Rangers goalie executing a difficult save in a two on one situation. Sam moved his head towards Joel and said, “You must be the new guy that Ian was telling me about,” Sam said.

Yeah, that’s me. I had to take a taxi as I got up a bit late as I didn’t set my alarm clock properly.”

No problem,” Sam replied. The traffic is more congested than normal this morning. I wonder what’s going on?”

Sam’s truck began to shake and a low rumbling sound was heard a few feet to the left of the driver’s seat.

Holy crow! What’s happening?” Joel said as he turned his head to see a large, thick, white neck trying to push a manhole cover off its head.

What the heck is that?” Sam asked, his face suddenly turning pale.

My best guess is that it’s the head and neck of a very large albino alligator,” Joel answered.

I heard the urban legends about alligators in New York’s source systems, but I never believed them until now,” Sam replied with a trace of a tremor in his voice.

Sam and Joel weren’t the only ones to notice an enormous albino alligator that was now using its awesome strength to manoeuvre her itself from the depths of the sewers to a major downtown street in New York City.

A UPS driver quickly turned his steering wheel to the right trying to avoid the monster that he could now see only a few feet in front of him. As a result his truck collided with Sam’s, but fortunately it only hit the side of Sam’s truck well behind the passenger cabin. Joel and Sam both felt the truck shake, but they were only startled not injured.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Struggle Begins by Ken David Stewart

The Struggle Begins by Ken David Stewart

The Worm Has Turned by Ken David Stewart

When one has hit rock bottom there is only one way to go and that way is up. After leaving Concordia Hospital I was prescribed a very strong antibiotic and a steroid. The steroid had an unusual effect upon me. This medication gave my mood a substantial boost. Even though, I still have a serious case of pneumonia, I felt like resuming some of my previous activities and further exploring some of my intellectual interests. I had recently purchased a bullworker physical training system and began a new workout routine. At times, I was gasping for breath but I would still complete my workout goal for the day. The bullworker is an isometric and isotonic training system. Although I am presently obese my desire is to create more muscle mass and to reduce my body fat. It is surprising how much better one starts to feel when he or she takes the first step towards attaining a goal.

It had been a few months since I wrote and published my last blog post and I greatly desired to get back to work with both my fiction writing and performing some new podcasts. I believe that my wife Martha will shortly begin work on a joint podcast with me. My single podcasts cover a lot of subject area such as excerpts from my personal journal, samples from my most recent novel excerpts and an attempt to articulate my philosophy of life and my Christian beliefs and values.

I spend a lot of time reading from my Samsung tablet as well as listening to my substantial collection of audiobooks on a wide variety of topics. I am presently studying motivational material by Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Anthony Robbins and Earl Nightingale. I am attempting to set new goals for myself and to develop a more positive attitude towards life. I also try to work in some daily Bible reading. This is about all that I’m going to include in this blog/podcast. My writings and podcasts can be found all over the web. My WordPress blogs and podcasts may be found by typing in kendavidstewart.net and on my Podbean and SoundCloud platforms. My hope is that you will read my WordPress blogs and podcasts on both SoundCloud and Podbean. I will also continue to work on my novels in process and will continue to release excerpts from them. Thank you in advance for following my work and my goal is that we both continue to think positively and work diligently to attain our personal goals.

God bless, Ken David Stewart January 27, 2021

The Blood Bath by Ken David Stewart

Episode 50 of Street Dreams

 

Eileen Drexler’s heart was filled with anxiety. She could feel her blood pressure rising as waves of pain kept assaulting her skull. She was trying to remember what happened and what her part was in this bloody mess.

Had she killed her boyfriend Stan Kowalski when they were embroiled in a fierce physical struggle? If so, that she must’ve struck him with the hammer in self defence. She kept on applying CPR while these thoughts rushed through her head. Where was her daughter, Pixie? Aileen called out for Pixie, but did not receive a response. Was it possible Pixie had assaulted Stan? She and Stan certainly did not get along and there was no love lost between them. Stan Kowalski did his best to tolerate Aileen’s teenage daughter, but found that he wasn’t able to relate to her on any level.

Whenever Stan would attempt to reprimand or discipline Pixie in any way, she would tersely remind him that he was not her father.

Stan Kowalski presented with an impressive physique. He was 5’11” tall and weighed 220 pounds. Stan had been steadily and rapidly losing his hair. so he now just shaved his head. He sported a black moustache, a goatee and an earring in his left ear lobe. His biceps bulged out of the tight black T-shirts that he liked to wear.

Stan was never an academic and dropped out of school, half way through grade ten. His lack of a secondary education caused Stan much consternation and embarrassment. Stan compensated for his lack of scholastic credentials by taking good care of his body. He worked hard at any construction jobs that came his way. When he was between assignments in the construction industry, Stan would pick up handyman jobs from clients who paid him under the table. When one totalled up the under the table cash payments that Stan received from his customers, he made a satisfactory income. Stan was also naturally gifted when it came to electronics. He possessed a natural gift for repairing and refurbishing old computers. This skill became a third source of revenue for Stan Kowalski.

A secondary benefit to many of his jobs was physical in nature. They heavy lifting required on his construction projects produced well-developed muscles throughout Stan’s body. Although this type of work yielded a great deal of muscle mass to his physique, Stan desired more muscular definition. In order to produce a ripped, cut up body, Stan had developed a workout regimen that was designed to produce muscular definition. This physical training routine could be practised in the rec room of Aileen Drexler’s home. Stan would often admire his impressive physique when he looked in the mirror and could probably say that he now had developed a body very similar to his namesake, Stanley Kowalski, played by Marlon Brando in the famous play A Streetcar Named Desire.
