So….you think you wanna try this blogging stuff again….? Well, try try again!

I’m the mad blogger what blogged at midnight!

Baptism of the weary warrior

Ok….no….I’m not really a warrior. And I’m not angry…I’m mad in the vein of insanity.

To quote a fantasy character from the seventies, “I am I, and that is all that matters.” My name is Curtis Selby. I am currently in Tulsa Oklahoma. I manage a warehouse for RNDC. My opinions are my own, RNDC management in no way shape or form should be accused of anything affiliated with my rambling.

When I’m at work, quite often there is a song going through my head. And very likely that song is Merle Haggard‘s, “Are the Good Times Really Over.” That song influenced me a lot as a child, and now, as an adult who hopes to build a better life for his son, I find the song resonates even more with me now, then it did then. So, when you read my rants and watch the videos that I site (yeah, sorry. I don’t make many of them……I site them in the hopes that I can inspire others in their quest for the truth….) remember these words that I’ll quote/paraphrase….

Is the best of the free life behind us now?

Are the good times really over for good?

And I hope that the clarion call rolls through this belabored nation:

Stop rolling downhill like a snowball headed for… you know the rest…….

Some things have changed. I sure have. But there is still some truth this song.

As a teenager, I felt that if there was ever a revolution, I would be a leader in it. Well, whether through God’s will, or through my cowardice, I largely sit on the sidelines, and wonder what’s wrong with the world….and what’s wrong with me….

I played football in high school. You wouldn’t believe it if you saw me. But I played, because I was desperately in love with this girl. I was no good, but I’d play my guts out. I’d give it every bit of my heart and soul. I felt as though I were fighting the darkness of the world. I felt as though I were making some difference. One night, I came home after an especially rough game, and saw this video:

There’s so much in this video that has haunted me for the last thirty-five years. I could go on and on about it. I’ve changed a lot. I still hope for a revolution, but now I hope for a bloodless one. If something doesn’t change, I firmly believe our society will collapse. But all we can control is ourselves. Possibly not even that. But I can choose. I can choose my next action. I can choose my next post. I can choose who I will ally myself to.

Better you should pray to God, the Father and the Spirit will guide you and protect you from up here.

Please read. Please discuss with your friends. Please try to stay strong in the days ahead. Be excellent to each other. Swear allegiance to the flag. Whatever flag they offer. Teach the children quietly, for someday sons and daughters will rise up and change the world that we let rot.

Can you hear me? I’m still running. I may not have won the girl. I may not have scored the touchdown. I failed to save family, town, school, the women I loved. But I still stand. Battered, beaten, even broken. I have fallen. But I am standing now, even if it be not on stable feet. And if I can still stand, who knows what you can accomplish.

Please visit my YouTube @tiredmdntblgger, my twitter @curtisselby6, in theory I can be reached via email at Thank you!

I’m listening to you, my friend JB. Focus! John Wicke succeeded because of his extreme focus!

        Likely I just need to figure out what I am doing wrong. But one day at a time.
