Doz On Life is changing everyday, it's important for me to find new shit worth writing about. If you know me at all, you know sports and music are my two most favorite things in life. I write about sports a lot but other than song of the day not much music. In attempts to change that this is a new feature I'll be working on where I basically just review albums and give my recommendations. Again because I have great taste you should take this gospel. Still a work in progress so I'm sure they'll be a few kinks at first but as you know it's my dream to work for Barstool and they don't really do a lot of music coverage so if this can help me give myself some added value on my application than that's awesome.
I'm gonna start off with some older albums that I really love but the goal for this is to review both new and old music. The Black Keys are my favorite band of all time so obviously I have to start with them, so the inaugural DOL Album Appreciation will be El Camino by The Black Keys.

What I have grown to love about the Black Keys is their multiple sounds. While I am a fan of all their music, most albums have a different sound than the last. They mix so many different genres of music, rock, blues, jazz, alternative, and garage rock. There sound is very unique. They can rock, but also can have an old timey blues sound. They perform at dive bars and football stadiums. The Black Keys often get compared to the White Stripes because they're both rock duos with many sounds but the Black Keys are sooooo much better IMO. Their lyrical content is amazing, they write many relatable songs about love, heart break, just life in general. Lead singer and guitarist Dan Auerbach has a vocal range unlike many others in rock currently, with a falsetto that would make Andy Bernard jealous, although that is displayed more on other albums.
With many albums there are a few songs that on good and then some you listen to a couple times and never again because it sucks. El Camino is not that kind of album. Of the 11 tracks, I'd say I love 10 of them. Mind Eraser the final song being my least favorite, when even that isn't an awful song. My favorite song on the album is Hell of a Season which is track #8 and was not released as a single.
Little Black Submarines
I included both the music video and live version because although the video is great, it is the single edit and chops about a minute off the song's album version, so I'll give you both. That's the doz on life difference.
Although the lead single "Lonely Boy" got most of the commercial success, and rightfully so, it's a great song, to me Little Black Submarines is the best single on the Album. IMO one of the Black Keys Top 5 songs from their entire catalog, nearly 15 years of music. What makes this song unique is the fusion of two separate musical styles, the song starts slowly with an acoustic guitar. The way I see it the lyrics paint a picture of a man dealing with a depression, just trying to go on with his broken heart. Hence the term "little black submarines" the Submarine being a metaphor for being held under with how he's feeling.
The lyric "Should've seen it glow, but everybody knows that a broken heart is blind", just shows that when you're not all their emotional it's impossible to see everything around you. Then the song takes a drastic turn and gets much more rock-y as it switches to electric guitar. The song is highlighted by Auerbach's guitar solos that sound much like a Led Zeppelin riff. You can just feel the emotion in this track. The closing solo is some of his best work ever.
I have seen the Black Keys twice in concert and this song as been their closer. Rightfully so, it is one of their best songs, some may even call it their signature song. When they perform it live, both the accustic intro and electric middle and ending are extended, it is really something to see and hear. In 2014 when I saw them at the Garden Auerbach began with a steel guitar, it was awesome.
Best Deep Tracks (non singles)
Dead and Gone
I'll go anywhere you go, oooooh oh ohh
Story of a girl taking advantage of a guy who loves her, but she doesn't know what she wants.
Hell of a Season
Hands down my favorite Black Keys song, just listen to it for yourself.
There is a reason this album won 4 Grammy Awards. IMO it is the Black Keys best work, it really bums me out there are rumors that they have split up. Drummer Patrick Carney has made quite the reputation for himself as one of the bigger ass holes in music. Hopefully it doesn't tear on of the best duos in rock apart. Especially after the disappoint that was Turn Blue. Would suck if that was their final album. It's not awful, but compared to their previous three records, it just doesn't hold a candle to it. There's a reason that when I went to the Turn Blue Tour they only played like 4 songs off that album.
So that was the first Album Appreciation. Be sure to give this entire album a listen if you haven't already. Even though it is nearly 5 years old it still holds up. Plus at under 40 minutes in length it's an easy listen, that you'll just want to play again, and again, and again.
Artist: The Lumineers
Album: Cleopatra (2016)
I used to HATE P.K. Subban. Mainly because he was one of the best players on my favorite team's biggest rival; the Montreal Canadiens. I haven't been following hockey like I once did, but the P.K. Subban trade really made me scratch my head. A young promising defensemen on the NHL's most historic franchise, shipped off to Nashville of all places for an aging Shea Webber. Just didn't make sense on the surface.
But it didn't take long for P.K. to make Nashville home.
Yep, that's just the newest Nashville Predators defensemen making himself at home in the music city. Just belting out some Johnny Cash at a bar. Performance wasn't as stellar as his slap shot but it was still pretty cool to see. I've already heard Nashville is a wicked fun city and it seems P.K. will fit in just fine. Rocking a swagged out hat, that by the looks of it, he hasn't taken off since he got to Nashville. Seriously. I'm not sure if he's taken a photo without it yet.
He's just probably the coolest dude in hockey. I honestly love this trade just so now I can openly admit my love for PK. He used to kill my Bruins but now it's okay to admit how awesome he is.
I first realized that I couldn't hate this guy anymore at the Winter Classic. When PK showed up to Foxboro wearing this:
I just cannot in good conscious bash swag like that, it's not possible. You are a certified hater if you can't appreciate this suit.
I'll fully admit I'm jumping on the Preds bandwagon now, it's gonna be a fun time with P.K. in SMASHVILLE
P.S. Seriously, P.K. may be the best dude in all of pro sports. Nobody else is doing stuff like this.
That's right TEN MILLION DOLLARS to a children's hospital. Absolutely unprecedented donation from an athlete.
In the dog days of summer it is hard to find good stuff to blog about. I mean I just wrote about Mick Jagger, (I wrote this on Monday) who the hell am I?
As my friends and hopefully future colleagues at barstool always complain about lack of content in the summer so in order to combat that, I'm gonna make the content myself. Not to toot my own horn (toot, toot) but these self deprecating blogs like dozo at the dentist or recapping my college graduation day are my best work, know what I'm saying?
This is meant to be light hearted, but I do hate when people say you shouldn't have regrets. To me that's not true. Life is all about experiences, the mistakes and shit help us grow. Just because you regret something doesn't necessarily make it bad or a mistake. Idk if that makes sense but in my head it does and and that's all that matters. With this it's not gonna be ranked like 1-10 instead I'm gonna break it into categories of regret. Enough with that, hopefully this gives you a good laugh. I feel kinda weird putting this out there but whatever if it makes people laugh it's worth it---
Let's get started!
Unlike Riley in Inside Out, when I quit hockey I quit for good because I am an idiot. But when I was a kid I wasn't nearly as big into sports as I am now. Cared way more about pokemon and playing tony hawk on N64. If you wanna call me a loser that's okay, I'd agree. But I did play hockey for a few years from like 2nd-4th grade.
A few highlights really stand out to me in my hockey career: I got in trouble for making fun of a mom in the locker room once. My dad really yelled at me at the way home, but whatever that lady was being annoying AF and she got called out.
I played goalie one game because didn't have a full time goalie and everybody took turns. I allowed 8 goals on 16 shots. I remember the coach saying, well you stopped half. Shades of things to come from my lacrosse career.
Lastly my biggest hockey highlight was that I scored a goal in my final game, which was a semi-finals game that we lost. But I did my part. Talk about going out on top. I actually scored 2 goals but one got called back, I don't remember why, probably because I was being too much of a man at 11 years old and the refs didn't like that.
I vividly remember quitting because the skates hurt my feet. What a pussy, right? After I quit that's when I went from a sorta chubby kid to a full on fatty. I can pinpoint the beginning of me as a truly fat slob from when I quit hockey. Now I'm not saying I would've been a star but if I stuck with hockey, I doubt I would've gotten as fat as I did. That alone puts quitting hockey on my regret list. Low key top 3 biggest regrets of my life.
Not Playing Little League.
I played T-ball and that's it. Didn't have the passion for baseball I do now. I wish I stuck with it just to have to experiences and memories most kids have from little league. Plus I throw like a girl, it would've been cool to not have that happen. I'm terrified of if I have a son that'll have to have a buddy of mine teach him how to throw. That's fucking sad.
Not attending the Patriots Super Bowl 49 Parade.
No joke, I love the Patriots more than most other things in my life. It goes like family 1, patriots 2, pizza 3, music 4. When they finally ended their decade long Super Bowl victory drought I was so happy that I cried. It was awesome. Malcolm Butler honestly you have no idea how much your interception means to me.
Being the diehard Boston sports fan that I am I went to the Bruins 2011 and Red Sox 2013 parades, however in early 2015 when the Pats parade took place I had JUST started student teaching and was trying to be professional and opted not to go. It also was a wicked snowy time and my piece of shit car wouldn't last in that weather so I decided to student teach instead. What makes this regret even worse is that my cooperating teacher gave me permission to go and I didn't because I wanted to be professional. What an idiot!!!
I might never teach a day in my life and I missed a party I was waiting a decade for. Kills me that I wasn't there to witness the madness. When the Pats win Super Bowl 51 I won't miss that celebration.
Everything About My High School Football Career.
Just a total bust. Never lifted weights, never won shit, never lived up to my full potential. Could've been so much better. Never spoke up to coaches. Fucked up my back wicked badly my senior year, and just played through it because I didn't wanna miss time of the final year of football for my entire life. It still gives me problems, back issues are the fucking worst. I let too much bad shit happen. My senior year was a nightmare after a junior year that ended prematurely, I should have a ring. I'm totally over this..... I mean it's just high school who cares, it didn't eat away at me for years or anything.....
Growing up Regrets
Never Saving Money.
Real talk. Save your fucking money. I mean, don't get me wrong, I've had a ton of fun in my life from the events that transpired from blowing every cent I ever made, but I have no savings whatsoever. When your card gets declined it is the most embarrassing feeling in the world. Do whatever you can to make sure that doesn't happen.
It's cool and smart to save money and be a real person, don't be like me. Again, have fun, but you really don't need to buy everything that catches your eye on Amazon. I promise you this.
Save Dat Money.
Not Wearing My Retainer.
TBH this is more my parents fault than mine, my dad truly is the one to blame here, but I won't get into that. I'll raise my hand and take a little accountability, even though I was 13 years old and just moved back to Rhode Island from Florida.
My dad never got me a new orthodontist, so once my retainer broke I just was SOL. Totally my fault, I mean a 13 year old in 8th grade totally should be responsible for scheduling his own orthodontist appointments. This is totally on me........
Regardless of who I wanna point the finger at, my jacked up teeth are something I have to deal with now. So in addition to growing up fat I also had a gap tooth. It's not like Michael Strahan, but I'm still self conscious AF about it. My friends used to say I have teeth like piano keys. Man that fact that I've even had sex with one girl is a minor miracle. Whatever, once I get a real job with dental, it's the first thing I'm fixing.
Being a Pussy in General.
I was too scared to put myself out there to make new friends in college. Aside from roommates, I'd say I made maybe 5 friends in college. I was (am) too scared to approach chicks at the bar. I was too worried to do anything.
Don't do that, life is all about taking chances. If you ask a girl out and she says no, guess what, you're just right back where you were 10 minutes ago. Just take chances in life, it's something I've been doing a lot more of lately. And by that I mean I've actually tried instead of just being too scared to make a move. I know it can be tough to put yourself out there whether it be with dating, jobs, or anything else, but don't be crippled by fear of rejection like I was/am.
TAKE A CHANCE!!!!
Being A Bad Boyfriend.
I know my friends will shit on me for saying this (if they even read this blog), but I can honestly say I don't give one fuck with they have to say about this topic. Love my boys, but given their histories nobody can say shit to me. For the most part, I am over everything, this blog is just about reflection and for the most part trying to make strangers on the internet laugh, but with this I'll try to be short and sweet.
Appreciate what you have in life, don't take anything for granted. I really did love her, but idk I just lost track of things and became a person I didn't wanna be. She's definitely responsible for some shit too. But overall I'd blame myself 60-40 for our demise. I took shit out on the one person who truly cared about me and just emotionally neglected her for the last 6 months or so. Idk I guess I thought the grass was greener on the other side. I just was mean, and didn't appreciate her. A lot of what happened is my own fault.
What I'm trying to say is deeper than just this example of my personal life.
In life appreciate what you have. You might have a shitty car, but at least you have a car. Many people don't have one. Obviously there are cases in life where there are better things out there whether it be a better job or any another opportunity; but overall don't take what you have for granted.
7th grade school picture. 2004-05 school year. Yes you are seeing that correctly, I had blonde spiked bangs. No I was not in a pop-punk band.
Getting So Drunk when I was 15 that I Shit my Pants and Went to the Hospital.
I'm not gonna say don't drink before you're 21 because that's stupid AF. Some of my best memories in life involve drinking underage. Drinking is top 5 best part of life, but it can also be top 5 worst parts if you're not responsible. I was not responsible at 15. That is too young.
However what I will say is do not chug 1/2 a handle of Captain Morgan. You WILL go to the hospital. Best advice I'll ever give is avoid doing that at all costs. Really ruined my sophomore year of high school. I think someone called me "party pooper" at least once a day for an entire year.
Not Trying Harder In School.
This will make me sound like a douchebag, but I am wicked fucking smart. I know my awful grammar and typos in my blogs may make you think otherwise, but it's a fact I'm very intelligent. My transcript would tell you otherwise as well, because I realized very early that I could give about 60% effort and still do decent in school. I did this in college too and it was stupid. My grades were okay but could've been much better, laziness and an overall lack of effort are the biggest reasons I'm writing this blog right now and not working a real job.
So kids, try, it's worth it.
Not Taking Better Care of Myself.
Short and sweet- you only get one body. CHERISH IT!!!! While I won't say avoid junk food and drinking at all costs because that's stupid, enjoy your life. I will say, don't do it for every single day for a decade. That shit will catch up to you. Mix in a salad once and a while. They suck, but just do it.
Not Learning How to Play a Musical Instrument.
I talk about it all the time, I fucking love music. Unfortunately apart from doing Karaoke, I don't really have any musical ability. I was in jazz band in middle school for a year and half but that doesn't count. I've always wanted to learn how to play guitar, I've owned multiple guitars in fact. Can't do shit. It's not too late but I wish I stuck with it and learned some basics.
Plus it's a great thing to help get chicks. Bumps you up at least 1 point. As someone who needs all the help they can get, I'm soooooo fucking stupid for not learning how to play at least a few cords.
Not Learning Life Skills
How do taxes work?
How do I get a credit card?
How do you fix anything on a car or around the house?
How do you properly satisfy a woman in bed?
What is an IRA?
How do you properly iron a shirt?
How do politics work? ( I used to know when I was in school but forgot the second I graduated)
These are all l things I have no idea how to do. I can tell you the most absurd trivial facts about music or sports but I can't do any man stuff. I'm not handy at all, and my dad is maybe the handiest man I've ever met. I hung up a sign yesterday and didn't check for a stud. It'll probably fall off my wall as soon as theres a minor storm.
I just have no idea what to do in the real world and it terrifies me. I can change a flat fire and that's about it. Wish I paid better attention to my dad growing up with how to be a man. Listen to your dad. I truly am a man child.
I seriously think all high schools should be required to have a "life skills" course. Show kids how taxes work and just how to do shit independently. It's way more important than learning science shit that I'll literally never use. Why did I take physics but not life 101?
I guess that's it. Hope you enjoyed! Again overall I'm pretty satisfied with my life but this was oddly therapeutic, plus if it makes people laugh I'll or can help them out I'll do anything!
late edit.... I'll add one final one.
Not Spending More Time With Family
You only get one man. Believe me I know they can be annoying and you may even fucking hate them at times but family is all you fucking have. Always say I love you to your parents, you never know when they're gonna die. That got kinda morbid but you know what I mean. I only see my mom like 3 weeks a year, make more time for your family! Aunts, uncles, cousins, everybody. If you're in my family and read this let's hang out soon!
Mick Jagger was trending on twitter today, luckily for him it's not because he died. Nope today it was announced that Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, 72 and his girlfriend Melanie Hamrick, 29 are expecting their first child together.
I mean the real question is would you wanna be this kid? Sure you're gonna be set finically for life, but I mean you're gonna be a fucking weirdo. Your mom is ballerina gold-digger who is fucking a dude who's been famous since the 60's. I mean it's insane, I'm pretty sure JFK was still alive when the Rolling Stone's first greatest hits record came out.
But like this poor kid is never gonna have a chance. Like you have to know your parents never truly loved each other. If Mick Jagger was Mike Jagger, a 72 year old regular old brit there's no way some hot ballerina is with him. Just one man's opinion. But I mean good for Mick Jagger for still being alive at this point. Chris Rock was right, British rock stars don't die.
I wanna knock Mick but I can't mean what do you want him to do, not have sex with ballerinas that are 53 years younger than him? But I mean I can't help but feel a little bad for this kid. I mean best case scenario Mick Jagger lives for what another 15 years? Sure he/she will be rich, but your dad is a great grand father. Imagine this poor kid in school explaining his family tree? I don't even wanna begin to understand how it works. Plus there's noooooo way that Mick is gonna help raise this kid. He's 72. He's gonna be in diapers at the same time as his own child. So I guess they can bond over that. It's just really gonna suck when this kid is gonna miss a 6th grade field trip because he has to go to his dad's funeral. The saddest part is it won't even be sad because Jagger will be dying of natural causes.
I'm so glad first take tweeted this stupid ass question because I've been talking about it for a couple weeks now.
Last week the news came out that Tom Brady will no longer fight the deflategate fight. Would've blogged it then but I was on staycation.
Now barring a miracle (or that people realize that Roger Goodell is a tyrant) 3rd year QB Jimmy Garappolo (Jimmy G already being in season 3 blows my mind, time please slow down) will start for the first month of the season while Brady serves his suspension.
One thing is for sure, the Patriots have the most handsome QB combo in the NFL.
But for real, obviously we all know how good Tom Brady is, but he is going to be 39 years old this season. Now I fully expect Brady to be behind center come week 5 but you never know, it's the NFL crazy things have happened. I mean Joe Montana lost his starting job to Steve Young. Peyton Manning just won a Super Bowl despite not being able to throw a football 30 yards. Yes, we all know Brady takes fantastic care of himself, but we also know the cliche "father time is undefeated". Actually we may not all know that line, but I do, so I guess it is true. Basically no matter how hard you try, your body will break down.
Also sports are unpredictable. Who would've thought that when Drew Bledsoe went down in 2001 that Tom Brady would lead the Patriots to a Super Bowl win later that season? If we all knew what was going to happen I'd be a millionaire from gambling on sports.
Instead I'm a broke fake blogger. I'm just saying you cannot 100% assume Brady will be back week 5 against the Browns. You can 99.9999999999999% assume, but I will not allow you to round up to 100%.
So that poses the question: How well must Jimmy G play in order to not lose his starting job come week 5?
First things first. Patriots HAVE to go 4-0 for there to even be a snowball's chance in hell of Jimmy G getting a 5th game. In New England winning is key so even if he threw 30 TD's in 4 games and the Pats went 3-1, Brady is playing vs Cleveland. Brady played at an MVP type level last season, 36 TD passes, so Jimmy needs to do something miraculous to win the full time job.
Let's say the Patriots go 4-0 against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills. I don't see it happening, but let's say it happens. What does Jimmy need to do? I'm saying over 18 TD's and under 2 INT. Anything worse and Brady is still starting. It goes without saying but against those defenses it is no easy task. Unless Jimmy G is playing like the best QB in the NFL then it's back to the bench for him. I'm just realizing I could've done this blog in like 3 sentences but whatever, it's my first one back. I'll be better, just believe in me.
It's such BS that this is happening but life isn't fair, and Roger Goodell is a tyrant. I'd give a 2% chance this happens. It is more probably than not Brady will be back, and thank God he will be. It really sucks that the Pats were a stupid two point conversation away from winning back to back Super Bowls, because make no mistake about it, if that game gets to OT the Pats win and I don't see them losing to the Panthers. Now we just have to wait until September and see how everything plays out.

DOL back in full swing. Let's go!
Let me paint you a picture.
February 5th 2012.
Super Bowl XLVI.
Patriots lead Giants 17-15.
It's 2nd and 11 on the 44 yard line.
Just outside of field goal range.
Tom Brady drops back to pass then this happens.
Tom Brady finds a wide open Wes Welker down the seem for what would've been a first down and more. The pass isn't great, the receiver can't get both hands on it. The pass is dropped. Pats fail on 3rd down, punt, Giants get the ball back, score and the Patriots lose the Super Bowl again.
At the time the Patriots had not won a Super Bowl since the 2004 season. They just went 13-3 and lost to a fucking 9-7 team in the Super Bowl in a game they should've won. With the miraculous catches that have beaten them in big games, it was a relatively easy drop that cost the team a championship.
Luckily the Patriots have won their elusive 4th Super Bowl since....but Wes Welker was not on that team. In fact, Wes is probably finished in the NFL and went 0-3 in the Super Bowl (0-2 with New England, 0-1 with Denver) A man with nearly 10,000 career receiving yards and over 900 receptions unfortunately will go down for the one he let slip through his fingers. Brady definitely deserves a large piece of the blame, because the throw was not great. A great pass that Tom Brady is capable of could've ended in a touchdown. If he hits Wes is stride he has a chance at the end zone. But Welker got his hands on it, gotta make that play. I think blame is 65-35 Welker-Brady. I believe that this play will ultimately keep Welker out of the Hall of Fame.
People will say one play doesn't win or lose a football game, and I completely disagree. Sure things could have gone differently throughout the game, but if that catch is made the Patriots at least kick a field goal, and can then play defense MUCH differently as opposed to how they did with a 2 point lead. I'm not gonna dwell on it because that's not what this blog is about. No it's about Wes Welker finally admitting that he still thinks about the costly drop in Super Bowl 46.
In a recent interview with CSNNE's Tom E. Curran, the former Patriot receiver opens up about his relationship with Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and how the drop has impacted him since.
What really made this clip stick out to me is that Welker finally admitted it, that he wishes he made the play. I know he's denied it before and it drove me crazy. It might sound stupid, but the fact he always shook it off pissed me off. That drop cost the Pats a championship and I want the guys actually playing to care. It's like me saying I don't think about my ex when everybody with a brain knows that's a lie. I remember when he was with the Broncos Welker said this in early 2014 at Super Bowl 48 Media Day.
“You know what? I don’t even think about it,” (Welker said when asked about it at Media Day.) “The past is the past, what happened, happened and I’m just looking forward to this one and going out there and playing my best game and doing what I can to help my team win.”
It just makes me feel good to know matters to Wes. Lets me know he's a true patriot. I"ll always love Welker and appreciate what he did hear from 07-12. He did literally everything you can do without winning a Super Bowl. It bums me out he never won a ring, I'd be happy for him even if it was with a different team. Both his ex teams the Pats and Broncos win SB's back to back without him. I mean the fucking Broncos somehow won the Super Bowl with a zombie at QB this year but Welker wasn't there. Nope instead some undeserving bums like Jordon Norwood or Cody Latimer have rings but not Welker. It sucks.
Wish you made the grab Wes but life goes on, hopefully you don't get CTE in 12 years.
I guess time really does heal all wounds bc now I can laugh at this. Pre Malcolm Butler INT I'd cry thinking about this awful night.
I just want everybody to know that I did not give up on blogging. Nope not at all, just been busy AF all July. Last week I picked up like an extra 30 hours at my job. As much as I love blogging and want it to be my career, as of now it does not pay the bills so it kinda went to the back burner while I was delivering pizzas. Then this week my mom has been up from Florida so obvi I gotta spend some time with my mom, which has also taken away from blogging. I know my friends/future co-workers at BSS say its the dead time of the year for material, which it definitely is, but if I had the free time I'd still be grinding out blogs believe that. Momma leaves Friday and I never blog weekends, so unless something crazy happens or I die I'll be back Monday with hopefully the normal 3-5 blogs a day.
Thanks so much for the support everybody, really appreciate it, I keep pushing back when I wanna apply to BSS because I wanna keep getting better material but with summer almost over I gotta figure something out so changes may be coming!! Cause let's be honest, I know I'm raw AF as a blogger....but as a personality for the company, holy shit I'd be awesome. Not to toot my own horn (toot, toot)
I feel like I've missed soooooo much the last two weeks, big news being that I guess pokemon is back? That's pretty big news. In my own personal life I met, hung out with, and ended it with a new girl in the two weeks so a lot has happened! Let's stop murdering each other too okay? Man I missed so much. Time to just get back in my chair and get to work! Let's go!
Sorry I've been slacking lately....been wicked busy with work and family in town plus summer. Should be back to full schedule by next week. I'll address it more in my next blog.
Gotta stay hot in the streets even with the time off. Here's the song of the day probably about 3 days too late.
Today is also my dad's birthday, Happy Birthday Dad!
