Welcome to the second installment of Tuesday Starts with Tea. If you missed the first one, don’t worry you can catch up right here. This week’s Tuesday Starts with Tea is about The Dirt by Motley Crue.
So far I am only 84 pages in, but it’s Tuesday, so I knew I needed to get a post up. Which means I am going to have to give The Dirt more than one Tuesday, gonna have to break into parts. So, welcome to part one of The Dirt.
For tea this week I drank Elderberry Herbal Tea by Simple Truth Organic. Simple Truth Organic is a Kroger brand, so you’ll have to go to Kroger if you want to get some. (Duh…haha!) I tried to find a tea similar to link for you on Amazon, but they literally have no elderberry teas.
With everyone worried about Corona Virus and all that stuff right now I decided to throw this tea into my Instacart order this month, up until this point I had never tried it before.
Elderberry is very good for helping you build or keep your immune system strong. Even though I haven’t been going out of the apartment for a while, I still figured building up my immune system would be a good idea; because I mean, has it ever been a bad idea? Probably not. I haven’t really gone anywhere since the end of February, remember when I saw Brian Mullen? Not so much because of Corona Virus, being in a wheelchair can mean low income, because of that I have to be frugal with my money.
Government assistance, isn’t always that helpful…if you know what I mean. Which is a lot of (aside for my love of writing) the reason I started this blog to be honest. Extra money is always a good thing.
All that being said, I’m not going to lie, I’m getting pretty lonely, and who knows when we can go back to living our regular lives…thanks to this virus. At least I’ve got a lot of books to read.
Woah! Why do I always seem to get off on a tangent. My bad.
Back to the tea. This tea is an herbal tea, which actually means there is no tea in it at all, did you know that? If you have ever had a Very Berry pie from Marie Callendar’s, then this tea tastes just like that, but with a more intense flavor. Steep for 5 minutes (any longer and I’ve noticed it gets a bit bitter.) I really like it!
Now let’s get to the book.
The Dirt is all about Motley Crue’s journey to becoming…well, Motley Crue. I have to keep this family friendly per the rules of WordPress. That could be difficult considering this book is all about the life of Rockstars. I think we all know how that usually goes, right?
Drugs, lots of girls…and lots of booze.
This is a very good book as far as I’ve read. I can’t remember which member of Motley Crue wrote this part, but I remember reading somewhere in the book that one of the members had mentioned how a lot of the things they had written down in their life had actually started happening. I wish I could find that part again, so I could give you the exact details. I just looked through all of the parts I have already read, but now I can’t find it anywhere. Probably because I’m looking for it. If/when I find it, I’ll make sure to add it here.
I really like that part of the book though, cause that is very true. It goes along with what I was saying in this post. I love that even Motley Crue realizes that on some level.
I have caught myself laughing quite a few times while reading this. Also there have been many times that I have had to stop reading for a minute to reflect on what I just read. Thinking: Wow! They really just said that?! Or I can’t believe they just did that! I really do believe it though, I’ve spent a lot of time with rockstars myself, they do some pretty wild stuff. I love it though, they keep things interesting. That’s why I like to hang out with musicians and rockstars; I don’t like boring people.
Where I’m at right now in The Dirt, Motley Crue is just starting to get noticed, they’ve started their own record label, are partying hard, playing gigs aroud town and finally selling albums. Can’t wait to keep reading.
If you want to read this book you can buy it: here (paperback)
If you are like me and prefer hardcover books you can buy it: here
If reading isn’t your thing, or even if it is you can always watch Netflix’s adaptation of the The Dirt. On Netflix (Duh!) under the same name…The Dirt. I highly recommend this book and movie to anyone who is a fan of Motley Crue, or fans of movies and books about music in general.
See you back here next Tuesday for part two of this book.
