Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day
Young Beautiful in a Hurry – Don’t Stop Me Now
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!”
So last night I was all “OMG! New Doctor Who! Dinosaurs on a spaceship! Whee!”
This morning I am more “ow, ow, ow, coffee, please give me coffee”. I have a headache and Into Free -Dangan- by the B’z stuck in my head making it even worse. Not as bad as having Immigrant Song stuck in my head because no matter how old and mellow he is now, the Robert Plant inside my head is always really freakin’ loud.
I have a new article on Dragon’s Dogma up over at GamingHUD. (thus explaining the music stuck in my head)
It’s like the ’80s exploding all over my screen…and I can’t look away.
Moving along —
Lots of new stuff up in the sidebar jukebox. I must go find everything Nicki Bluhm has ever recorded and snag it because her voice is amazing. You all pop over and give her a listen. Beautiful, beautiful voice. Her band is the Gramblers and keep wondering if it is some smushing of rambler and gambler or just, you know, a word?
This last vid is for shoreacres from The Task at Hand. It’s The Record Company at this years’ SXSW covering Freddy Cannon’s Tallahassee Lassie. I consider this fair payment for the backwards walking chicken video.
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.
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.
I have no music blogs this week. I’ve been super busy with other stuff and have barely been online, much less had time to read all the music blog posts.
I had to order the Dad-in-Law’s gift for Father’s Day from Amazon UK since it doesn’t release in the US till the 19th. Now I hope the shipping is correct and it gets here in time. He is going to join us for vacation in a couple of weeks so it needs to arrive before we leave.
I have listened to a lot of music this week so I have several reviews in the works. I am saving one for vacation so the blog isn’t an endless stream of “look-a pretty tree” pictures while we are on the road.
This is the video preview of the new Skyrim DLC DawnGuard. Mounted combat, crossbows, new armor and lots of other stuff. The vid is a little gory so if that isn’t your thing you may want to skip it.
Aghh. I need more coffee.
