Fried Day

Want to know what a typical Friday is like for me? Well.. I spent the whole week getting the living shit beat out of me at work.. I can barely move. My hands are so sore that I can barely type this very article. I am about to take roughly 1000 mg of acetaminophen just so I can walk. It’s no wonder that I am very excited that it’s Friday. Are you feeling like me? Shame on you. Don’t feel bad thought. I chose this all on my own. haha.

Well.. There’s one more thing to be excited about. The weekend. What does that mean for you? The radio show. Yeah, more episodes are on the way. I know many of you out there don’t exactly understand the “culture” of Amazon. So, I like to take precious moments of my time to really fill you in on what we go through. My last article should definitely give you a taste on the kind of venting we do on a typical workday. I hope you enjoyed it. Am I over it? Of course. Life goes on, and there’s much more nonsense headed my way. I am sure of it.

There are not a whole lot of things in life worth being mad about. Sometimes you just gotta take that moment to say “Go float yourself” and vent. We are entering our peak season so I am sure there is much more of that to come. Sometimes we all wonder why we are Amazonians. I guess that we all truly feel like we are making history. We have a greater sense of accomplishment being there. Honestly, I have no idea why we keep showing up. We just do. That’s what makes us.. US. Do I still NOT care? Of course. I am KCJ. If you were me, you wouldn’t either.

So many of you out there have been asking me about my clothing. Why am I always decked out in King Craig James merchandise? Why are other people wearing my stuff? What’s with the crown? I know it’s hard for people (who don’t know me) to believe this, but I am the owner of this fine brand. I have a lot of stuff with my name on it. From time to time, I show up to work in it. Which means I get to hear your opinions, comments, and snide remarks. That’s what I call.. Impact. Am I asking YOU about what you’re wearing? Well.. Probably not. So.. Thanks for your interest. I don’t mean to be a dick when you ask about it, but you got a phone. Go do your research before you ask me, or my people a million questions.


Anyways.. Since you’re going to keep asking anyways.. Before I head to work, I conduct, and run a business. I don’t always have time to change my outfit.. So yeah, get over it.

So you’re answer is YES. I am the one recording the music in stores. I am Mr. King Craig James. Now before you make your case for Elvis, Michael Jackson, or any other Kings out there. Just do a google search on me. You will be pleased to find that I live up to my name.

So please, no more questions. Use that little device you constantly stare at. It’s full of answers.

The golden years

I never thought I would say this.. but I can’t wait to see my doctor. For the past year or so.. My body has been aching, and my knees feel (and sound) like they’re going to break. I have a very physical lifestyle. I would expect a little soreness, but this is major.


Life has really been throwing a lot of stuff at me lately, and I am just dodging those bullets like I am in the matrix. I am trying to rise above, and let my greatness shine. I think those around me rarely notice because I tend to keep them smiling. If not, I certainly try to. I am really starting to lose that spark though. I feel like I have to lie in bed for 3 days just to be able to move around for one. It’s very discouraging.

Once upon a time. Mr. KCJ played a lot of sports. From baseball, to football, and just about everything else. Now, I am certainly feeling the affects of it. When I wake up every morning, my entire body is completely sore. I am not sure what’s going on but I am certainly stretching, and hydrating enough. My diet, well.. Let’s just say I eat well.


Sometimes it feels like nobody understands the kind of pain I am going through. I am really starting to worry about how much ibuprofen, and Tylenol it takes me to get through the day. With the way my legs look, anything could be happening. In fact, my Doc was pretty puzzled when I showed him. I feel like I have tried everything to cure the pain. I am only able to mask it for a short while.

I am fortunate enough to get a massage just about every night. I am also fortunate enough to have people out there that really care about me. I am doing my best to walk through life just pretending I am ok, but in reality.. I really just want to feel good again. I wish I was joking when I say that I feel like I am 95 years old when I wake up in the morning..

I know one thing is for sure. I probably don’t get enough sleep. However, even when I do. I don’t think it makes much of a difference. I just hope that my Doctor has some kind of solution because I am really losing faith in the medical field. Not that I had much to begin with. Anyways, I hope things go well. I think I am going to go get some rest.
