California’s been good to me, hope it don’t fall into the sea…

I need to cut my hair. Not in the “hey, I need a trim” kind of way but in the ‘AGHHH!!!  I almost burned my hair off when it fell in the oven’ or the ‘ouch, I sat on my hair again’ or my favorite the ‘tired of holding my hair up so it doesn’t dip in the toilet’ kind of ways.

I should have cut it weeks ago but I was waiting till I decided what I was going as for Animazement next year. If I needed really long hair I didn’t want to lop it off and then worry about whether it would regrow before the Con. I don’t need it longer than it will regrow so I’ll be attacking it sometime this weekend.

Yes, the ‘Bit talked us into attending Animazement next year. I am hoping to see a couple of bands while there, depending on how tired/bored Scooter is during the day.

Listening to Jack Moore cover Don’t Back Down by Tom Petty.


Also been listening to new White Buffalo with Joey White from the upcoming album, Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways.



And I found Doghouse Blues by band Hollis Brown in my Soundcloud list and have it playing today as well.



I’ll be doing some slight construction work on the blog.  I’m taking the jukebox out for a while and will have some gaming posts mixed in with the usual. Okay, more coffee is needed.


You’re just a two-pack habit with a southern accent…

Okay, this has been a long, long week. Kahuna was in Alabama for most of it visiting his dad and got back in last night. They spent the week eating out and sitting on the front porch. Seriously. To be fair to the Dad-In-Law, he was recovering from surgery and in a bit of pain so the ‘not wanting to move around’ is understandable. Sadly, I did no porch-sitting this week.

Instead I spent the week tossing up videos on my new tumbler.  I like it! It’s like, whoosh, click, instant vids! (My tumbler is at http://kitbrownvids.tumblr.com/)

Still not sure what I am going to do or exactly how to intergrate it but I am having fun so that is a plus. Sorted through all the vids I put up this week for the following:

Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Week 

American Aquarium – Saint Mary’s 




You could save me from the way I tend to be…

Huh…my coffee cup is empty.

The featured vid this week is The Way I Tend To Be from the awesome Frank Turner.

So I decided to give Tumblr a try. While it doesn’t do most of stuff my blog does it is much easier to post up things like videos and streaming music. It’s called awesome vid of the day and is anywhere from one to four videos a day with a theme. Blues on Monday, rock and metal on Saturday, that sort of thing. I am not super happy with how the source thing works. I put specific addresses in for videos and often get the generic site (like facebook instead of the Savages facebook page) but other than that it is not bad.

Young Beautiful in a Hurry – Don’t Stop Me Now 


  - Kit

Wish that I was on old Rocky Top…

So about a week and a half ago I started back working out. I knew it would be rough but sheesh, even my toes and hair ache. I’m doing the 100 pushups challenge again. On week 2, day 2, column 1. I’m also seriously considering just snagging a brace for my knee and doing couch to 5K. I’ll let you all know if I survive.

Still going through emails and Twitter stuff, although I finally put the app for Twitter on my tablet. I will get to all the music and videos you guys have sent me and get it all up on the blog in one form or another.

My signed Doc Dailey and the Magnolia Devil album from their Kickstarter campaign came in last week. They also send loads of cool stuff like a sticker and booklet. As soon as I get pictures of it all I’ll put the review up.

I have Rocky Top stuck in my head today. The Osborne Brothers version to be precise.

What’s that? You all want to hear it too?



My work here is done.



If you need some money I swear I’ll steal millions…

Kit’s Awesome Vid of the Day

The Record Company – This Crooked City 




L-o-l-a Lola…

So I was massively sleep-deprived. Then I was ill. There were no actual broken bones but I did cough hard enough to pull muscles. Then I was massively sleep-deprived again. Then I looked up and two months had passed since I blogged or had an online presence.

In between trips to the crossroads in desperate search for someone willing to trade sleep for my soul (I had no luck) and coughing I did some online reading while I was ill. As a result I have a few comments.

For those of you that write Avengers fanfic (oh don’t even) Brooklyn is not some small town Steve (Rogers) leaves to go to the big city of New York. Brooklyn IS in New York City. New York City is divided into five boroughs (think of them as ginormous neighborhoods). Brooklyn has the most people (around 2.5 million) and nearly the most area.  As always writers, Google is your research friend.

Also, for the serious news bloggers out there – please don’t cite The Onion as a serious news source…just – please – don’t.

The new preview trailer for Shield is out.  I love that Coulson named his car.
