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.

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.

Episode 49 of Street Dreams/The Blood Bath

Episode 49 of Street Dreams/the Blood Bath

Pixie’s mother, Aileen Drexler, slowly began to regain consciousness. Her boyfriend, Stan Kowalski had struck her with so many blows from a nearby two by four that Aileen had passed out from the pain. Stan had delivered four to five vicious blows to her body. He had even landed a couple to the back of her skull. Mrs. Drexler slowly opened her eyes and felt trickles of blood flowing from the back of her head. She placed her left hand on the backside of her head and quickly turned her head to where she could see it and saw that it was covered in bright red.

Aileen felt dizzy and she was now viewing the world in double vision. She turned her head toward the wall and felt nauseous as she could see clumps of grey matter streaked with blood splattered across it. When she slowly turned around, she felt a surge of pain radiating through her whole body. She couldn’t move her neck around any further,but caught a glimpse of her boyfriend, Stan Kowalski

She noticed that Stan’s head resembled the red planet, Mars with an indentation on the right side of his skull. A thick layer of blood was coagulating on the carpet surrounding his bashed in head. A few feet behind Stan was an oversized hammer that now had bloodstains mixed with old paint splatter. Using her first- responder training, Aileen Drexler bent down and placed her ear close to her boyfriend’s head to check if he was breathing. As she could neither hear nor feel any breath coming from either Stan’s nose or mouth, Aileen checked for any pulse coming from Kowalski’s carotid artery. Being satisfied that she was not getting any sign of a pulse from her boyfriend, Aileen went to the living room to get her cell phone and called emergency services. She told the dispatcher that she was with a 37-year-old male who was bleeding profusely from a wound to his head and that she could not get any sign that he was breathing or had a pulse.

The male emergency services worker instructed Aileen to try making a tourniquet out of her shirt and attempt to try and manage the blood loss from the victim’s head. She was also told to start CPR immediately. He assured Aileen that paramedics and the police would be at her house shortly. Mrs. Drexler also informed the emergency services worker that she had suffered a blow to the back of her head, but that she had managed to stop the bleeding by applying a wet washcloth that she had retrieved from the bathroom.
