    ROB ANTHONY DIRE

    in Music

    Rob Anthony Dire knew music was in his soul when he began playing piano at age 5.  His mother is a classically trained vocalist and pianist.  She performed in many operas while pregnant for him - so he literally was born into music.  Rob then added more skills to his passion when he picked up a guitar and bass at age 14 and taught himself as well as singing all of his life since he was very young.  He used to sing into a micro-cassette recorder, he was destined to be a star.  He wrote his first song at age 16 and almost won a record deal in 2000 with "Come to Life."  He later learned how to play drums after his first band split up.  After being in several bands in Boston area, he decided to go solo. He built up his own home studio a decade ago and has been producing, mixing and creating his own music on his own.     His debut album, "Grandeur Of Delusions" is a culmination of singer/songwriter/musician body of work over the last several years. What was meant to be released as his first solo album took a forced hiatus as he lost his right eardrum and majority of hearing on that side. Seven reconstructive surgeries later, he was finally able to produce, mix and trust his hearing again.   Upon the release of his album, Rob decided finally to give in and succumb to the Twitter craze, which led him into the world of BlogTalkRadio hosting, something he discovered he enjoys almost as much as making music.   He stops by on Thursday, May 16, at 7pm EST.

    Justin Blackmon hates Rob Gronkowski

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 130: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion imagines that Justin Blackmon and Josh Gordon loathe Rob Gronkowski's drunken shenanigans. 


    Affinity for Adrian Peterson in fantasy football demonstrates the gullibility of sports fans who are often susceptible to sports media-contrived player mythology. 


    No running back in NFL history has been near the top of the league in efficiency after crossing the 2000 carry Rubicon. 


    HGH is particilarly useful when rehabbing from a major injury. 


    Jamaal Charles also came back from an ACL tear in less than a year and has averaged 5.5 yards per carry and 37-plus receptions per year in his career.


    At least twelve primary NFL running backs will likely be more efficient runners and catch more passes and are less likely to get injured than Adrian Peterson in 2015. 


    Matt Kelley is a pseudo-intellectual fraud whistleblower employed to expose fraudulent psuedo-intellectual fantasy football analysis. 


    In both poker and fantasy sports, the largest input cost is the time invested actually playing the game, not the buy-in. 


    Advanced metrics, prospect evaluations, and fantasy football information were provided by PlayerProfiler.com.
