I missed Ninebullets Radio last night which is a shame because Bryan put together a stellar line-up of artists and then attempted (or so I assume) to blow the roof off the radio station. Since I missed it live I am listening to the recorded version.
Just check out the playlist:
01. Otis Gibbs – Crap For Christmas (Once I Dreamed Of Christmas) 02. The Black Keys – Thick Freakness (Thickfreakness) 03. Left Lane Cruiser – Big Mama (Bring Yo Ass To The Table) 04. The Legendary Shack Shakers – County Of Graves (Believe) 05. Those Crosstown Rivals – Kentucky Woman (TCR/Arliss Split 7?) 06. The Whipsaws – Jessi Jane (60 Watt Ave) 07. Arliss Nancy – Both Got Old (TCR/Arliss Split 7?) 08. Frank Turner – The Road (Last Minutes & Lost Evenings) 09. The White Buffalo – The Pilot (Once Upon A Time In The West) 10. Drag The River – History with History (unreleased) 11. Have Gun Will Travel – To The Victor Go The Spoils (Mergers & Acquisitions) 12. Doc Dailey & Magnolia Devil – She Has Her Moments (Catch The Presidents) 13. Possum Jenkins – Greasy Spoon (On Time) 14. JKutchma & The Five Fifths – Used To Believe (Pastorals) 15. Chris Knight – In the Mean Time (Little Victories) 16. Scott H. Biram – Judgement Day (Something’s Wrong/Lost Forever)
Seriously good show. Four or five of these are on my best of 2012 list but the entire line-up is just awesome.
For those of you that pull the blog on feed, Routed Tree is the video up in the featured spot and it’s from my favorite Brighton guys, Gypsy and the Wolf.
This is my new desktop background -
Before everyone gets overcome with jealousy, there are several wallpapers and some new shots from Ironman 3 over on the Marvel website so you all can have your own Tony Stark/Ironman background.
Well, I’m on the last track of the show (appropriately titled Judgement Day-grin) and need to run. Have a good weekend!
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.
Most music bloggers have a stack, either physical or digital, of albums they want/plan/need to review. While that certainly holds true for me as well, my reviewing Waterloo is music videos. I watch them, bookmark them, save them and always tell myself, “hey, I’ll pop this up in the featured section or do an awesome vid of day with it” and then it goes to the metaphorical bottom of the pile and never makes it up on the blog page.
So I am going to try something a little different. Every week or two I’ll do a ‘clean out the vid bin’ post and just toss them all on the page. Let’s see how this goes.
The Baron Sisters (Kimmie and Kelsie) are singer/songwriters from Florida. I love the harmonies and the slightly quirky lyrics of their songs. This is their newest video, released yesterday July 10, 2012. If you like their sound you can pop over to their website and download the song for free.
I am not sure where this next vid came from but I love the retro styling. George A Santino gives his rendition of Come Fly With Me. (written by Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn and originally performed by Frank Sinatra)
Somehow I nearly missed the release of the new Aerosmith video. I didn’t see much press on it and found it while tracking down another piece of music. Legendary Child is an older song, written in ’91 but never released. This version was reworked for the movie G.I. Joe – Retaliation. I don’t watch Idol so I missed the release of the song. The original video for the song had the band live, mixed with clips from the movie but when the movie release was pushed back to 2013 they couldn’t use the clips. This version has actress Alexa Vega on roller skates. Yes, roller skates. Just watch.
I’m gonna close with the rough trailer for the upcoming film, Smokestack Lightning: The Legendary Howlin’ Wolf. You can follow the filmmakers on their facebook page or their you tube channel.
Need to make this quick as I have to go start the bread soon. The mini-mes are ill today so I am making chicken soup for dinner.
Iron Man 3 stuff!
Er…the post title might be actually be a spoiler…Anyway -
This is a pic of Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts. In a very cute suit. Probably while filming in Cary. Note the sandals. This was obviously filmed on the only warm day North Carolina has had this summer. So will they CGI the Heels-of-Towering-Heights on later?
Oh yeah, the pics floating around are not of the Iron Patriot suit. They are apparently the new paint job on War Machine.
The previous sentence is not written in code.
I only put this pic of RDJ and Paltrow up to illustrate just how cold it has been this summer. Robert Downey Jr is wearing a jacket. Because, yes it is still that cold here. I would make ‘year without a summer’ jokes but it has stopped being funny. Look at the frown on his face. Even he thinks it is too freakin’ cold.
That is it for the movie stuff this week. Back to music tomorrow.
Scooter is watching Angry Birds videos this morning. Yes, there really are Angry Birds vids and no, I haven’t a clue why. She seems to be stuck on the one with the superhero angry birds and one set to I Wanna Hold Your Hand. Somebody save me…please.
New video for “45″ from The Gaslight Anthem.
According to The Mary Sue, NASA will be having a bake sale this weekend. Seriously.
The peeps over on City of Steam have put together some game-related merchandise. You can pick up City of Steam themed (ouch, sorry) or Mechanist Games themed t-shirts, coffee cups, posters and mouse pads.
I still have an Arlis Nancy - Simple Machines CD to give away.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse have reunited to release Americana. I’ve had the vid to Oh, Suzannah floating around the blog and my facebook this week. I kinda like the ‘let’s add a hard guitar and drum edge to the tune’ sound. Before they became grade school standards, some of these tracks were protest songs and I think Americana does a good job of recapturing that feeling. You all should definitely check it out just…skip the Rolling Stone review ’cause it is crap.
Yeah, don’t even. I was over there to read the review for the awesome new Joe Bonamassa release, Driving Towards the Daylight (another crap review, btw) and read the one for Americana while I was there. No, I am not linking to either of them because I would rather have my fingernails pulled off with pliers than link to RS. Have a Joe vid instead.
Catch Joe at about 2:58 in the vid.
My Iron Man lamp is finally here!
Once I put away all the folded clothes on the top of my desk I’ll take a pic. I may use it as my ’On Vacation’ graphic this year. According to the news, I should be able to step outside and like, run into someone from Iron Man 3. Wednesday they were filming over in Cary so they could be ANYWHERE.
Well, anywhere except Lowes tomorrow since I need things from the Garden Center and don’t want to fight traffic to get there. Hey, I have priorities.
Okay, I need coffee and eventually I must conquer the laundry. I also need to start on the week in blogs since it is looking kind of huge at this point. Go, shoo. Watch the vids.
Sooo…Robert Downey, Jr is standing approximately two (2) hours away from where I am sitting at this very moment. Okay, okay – I assume he is standing. He could be sitting or running or banging on prop movie metal with a prop movie hammer. The point is…uh, I know had a point.
YES, the point is if I had a south facing window I could stare directly at the movie sets. I can’t see them of course (refers back to the two hours away statement) but that doesn’t change the fact that they are there.
Iron Man 3 is filming in Wilmington, NC well…right now. Sigh. I knew the whole “if I can’t go to Gulf Shores for vacation I don’t want to go to the beach at all” thing would backfire on me.
Huh…Kahuna popped in for lunch and according to his phone compass (I know, right – but I love him anyway) our big wall-o-windows faces SE so I actually can stand in the sunroom and look SOUTH to Wilmington!
Hey RDJ, I am watching you!
Er…that came out way more creepy and stalker-y than I intended. Great…now if I ever accidently run into him at the market while on an emergency goldfish cracker run I’ll feel all awkward and weird. Not awkward enough to let him have the last bag of goldfish, but still…weird.
I wish we had a little more info on the villain or villains. I am cool with pretty much anyone except the Living Armor ’cause that storyline creeps me out. I also wish Marvel would release more pics and such but they like to relay info on their movies a drop at a time.
