Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day
Iron Man 3 Trailer
I am going to watch this over and over because it is so very awesome and with the hope it will help sooth the pain of the Cards losing last night.
Wow Monday is really, really bright.
Moved Kahuna’s amp out of the closet and into my office. Looks cool and is much easier to get at when he wants to play, but the best part is now I have more room in my closet for boots!
Actually it is more like now I have room in the closet to actually put my boots inside. It isn’t that I have so many boots, it’s that everything (non-boot related) in the apartment we don’t have space for winds up in our closet. We went so many years without closets that I think we sort of view ours as a spare room, instead of the place you hang your clothes.
Credit for finding the featured vid goes to Cassie Taylor. She was tweeting the vids she was watching this morning and she shared Three Stripes on a Cadillac by her dad, Otis Taylor.
Okay, so I found this:
Then I died of squee overload.
I felt really blah yesterday so Scooter and I spent the day playing Hearthfire, the new DLC for Skyrim. We mined ore, planted herbs and forged too many nails to count. At the end of the day we both felt better and we had a shiny new in-game house, a moose named Barnaby and a couple of chickens. Yes, chickens.
New music out this month from Ryan Bingham, Patterson Hood, Animal Collective, the Avett Brothers, The Killers and lots more. I have lots of new music for the jukebox and a few reviews if Scooter will cooperate.
There are still a few tickets left for the StageIt – Steve Carlson concert later today.
Finally, rock on little Freddie bird.
“Rovio and Angry Birds are proud supporters of the Mercury Phoenix Trust and Freddie For A Day on September 5th!”
I am awake! During the day!
Scooter has returned to sleeping at night and I am no longer a zombie! Goodbye zombiedom!
So I found this meme where you take the color of pants you are wearing and pair it (sorry) with the last thing you ate to get your ultimate band name. Mine was Blue Greek Yogurt which screams (to me at least) ‘Hi, I’m a 70′s prog band’. Sadly, all my ‘answer the meme, get your band name’ things end up sounding like a prog band.
All new tracks up in the sidebar jukebox today with songs from American Aquarium, Viv and the Revival, Angie Atkinson, The Baron Sisters and Joanne Shaw Taylor.
Bethesda is releasing a new DLC for Skyrim called Hearthfire.
I’m not really interested in snagging a hubby or hubby-ette to keep in the house, nor will I be adopting any urchins – but - I am stoked to build a house and garden and a Bard room where I will install my Bard and he or she can sing endless repetitions of the same TWO songs while I am away on grand adventures.
(Hmm..unless the urchins have minion potential. I could use a few minions.)
Still doing the ‘up all night – sleep all day thing’ with Scooter. On the plus side she has finally embraced the whole ‘yeah for bathrooms’ concept and that is a relief but the living large all night thing is really rough. I feel kind of like a zombie
Ordered all the things we need from Manic Panic to give the ‘Bit shocking blue hair before school starts.
(Yeah, yeah I know – but she only gets to be 17 with electric blue hair once in her life so…bring it on.)
We also picked up most of the
non-counter culture school supplies she needs and her schedule so we are pretty much ready for school.
On to music – things:
Check out the album cover for Tomorrowland, the upcoming release from Ryan Bingham.
If you preorder a copy on August 28, 2012 Ryan will send you a signed copy.
New video from Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires – Ain’t No Stranger
Also have a new video from The Sights – Left Over Right
My office needs a door…that can be locked…and then barred with a big railroad tie.
My ninebullets radio sticker came in the mail today!!!
I haven’t put it up anywhere permanently since I was going to stick it on my gig bag but decided I want it in the office instead. Now if they would just make a ninebullets radio coffee cup.
I have shiny new Patterson Hood up in the sidebar jukebox today!
Check out “Come Back Little Star” a preview track from his upcoming album Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance. I love the piano on this track – it is so very pretty. You can download your own copy from the link below -
I got my key for the City of Steam preview yesterday so I will be MMO’ing this weekend.
Huh, I ran out of exclamation points. Anyway…the plan is to game test City of Steam and finish my Dawnguard review. Possibly also toss the girls in the pool if the weather will cooperate.
I picked up the new Captain Marvel # 1 this morning. The Marvel Captain Marvel with Carol Danvers, not the DC Captain Marvel.
I love the new costume. The hair – the gloves – the everything.
(And seriously dudes, it isn’t like there is a shortage of thigh-high boots in the comic ‘verse. Trust me, you all will survive the trama of one super chick in pants.)
You can pick up Captain Marvel #1 at your local comic shop or order it online. I picked my copy up and pre-ordered the next three issues over on Things From Another World.
