Okay, I have moved my album review for this week to what I am really hoping is Friday. Scooter has flipped days and nights again and if Kahuna didn’t tell me what day it was I would be completely lost.
A few old and a few new tracks in the jukebox this week. I’m still annoyed the Takers broke up and no one told me. Then Devon and Chad went and made a new band (Snakehealers) and again no one told me.
The Bart Walker Band – Left Turn, Snakehealers – Roadside, Joshua Black Wilkins – Late Night Talks, The Delta Routine – Oh, No , Tyler Walker Band – Maybe We Were Wrong, and some Eden Burning with If You Want Me ’cause coffee alone is just not enough this morning.
Ughhh…if I never see cake again it will be too soon. If we take out the part where I actually am a year older and don’t eat anymore cake, I had a great birthday. Kahuna made lasagna and got me this awesome Avengers card -
We we also watched the Avengers movie (again) and tried another new coffee. I made a pot of Donut Shop and it was pretty good. It pairs well (grin) with cake. I liked it much better than the kahlua flavored coffee. (In retrospect, buying coffee flavored coffee was probably not my smartest move)
Check out this new video from the Dropkick Murphys off their January 8, 2013 release Signed and Sealed in Blood.

It’s November and I’ll be attempting NaBloPoMo again. We’ll be in Alabama for part of the month so i’ll be trying out mobile posting and searching for the One True WiFi spot in addition to the normal blog stuff. I will also be linking the blog post list over at BlogHer.
I was thinking of doing another free music friday but with a game review and an EP review in line for tomorrow I decided to pop the free stuff up today. We can call it Thirst for Music Thursday.
What? Oh shoo, just go listen and download.
The Buffalo Killers celebrate their upcoming tour by offering a shiny new track for free download:
I downloaded a couple of new tracks off Soundcloud:
I need to go finish my grocery list. Yes, I do know how boring that sounds but I am out of coffee (the rumors I am in physical pain over this are possibly true) and well, out of coffee.
For something a little more fun than shopping, check out Boston band Mean Creek and their vid Young and Wild:
I sometimes think I need a graphic for the sidebar that says “Not dead…Back eventually…”
I have a mountain of email and a mountain of music piled up - I will be working on both of those over the next couple of days. I might even venture out of the house this weekend. I need to pick up a new wireless mouse (mine is gasping its’ last breath as a type this) and every time I open gmail I foresee an urgent coffee resupply run.
Oh Arkansas…maybe you should switch to hockey for this season. You and Auburn could form a new league.
For those that read the blog on a feed, the featured vid is Dislocated Boy off the new Joe Bonamassa release, Driving Towards the Daylight.
The neighbor across the street staggered out earlier this morning, his shirt on inside out, and drove somewhere. I (of course) laughed and mocked him in my head. He just came back with a big box of donuts. Karma is so mean.
Okay, gotta make fresh coffee.
We are out of salsa.
I even double-checked the fridge and pantry after I had my coffee, but still no salsa. This is distressing first thing in the morning since I am neither physically nor mentally capable of making homemade salsa before I eat. It’s like being caught in some horrible recursive salsa loop. I need to eat the salsa but I must make the salsa but I must eat the salsa before I can make…you all get the idea.
Great, now I want another cup of coffee.
So…One of the difficulties I have with practising is the physical mechanics of getting the guitar out of the case, going into the other room, tuning, etc.
By the time I get ready to play Scooter comes and interrupts me and I get nowhere. Then I have to pack the guitar away again. Last week I found a place called Hang ‘Em High. They sell multi-piece wall hangers for guitars so your baby doesn’t have to hang by the neck.
(not that neck hanging is terrible – we have a couple of guitars on the wall with just the neck hanger and they do fine – but for my Martin I wanted to be more careful)
Kahuna was nice enough to help me install the wall hanger in my office Saturday.
(and by help I mean do all the actual work while I held my guitar and made approving noises)
The wall hangers come in five finishes (I got the white one so it would blend into the wall and also so I could just paint over it when we decide on the wall color for the office) and Hang ‘Em High has specialized versions of the hangers for your acoustic or electric guitar. They also have a hanger if you want to mount your guitar completely vertically.
The hangers come with optional velvet (yeah, I know) covers for the padded bars. If your guitar has a nitro-cellulose (varnish/laquer) finish the normal padding can mar it. I wasn’t totally sure what mine is finished with but since Martins in general have a varnish-type finish I went ahead and ordered the covers just to be safe. You could also sew your own covers or snag a few toddler socks to cover the padding.
I like it. My guitar is right there when I want it and I will always be a fan of things so sturdy hydralic equipment is needed to remove them.
I’ll make this short since I have an awesome vid of the day to upload and you know…dishes to wash. It’s political so if that isn’t your thing you can skip to the video in the next post.
Dear National Organization for Marriage Hate Group:
Although in the past I have only been an occasional Starbucks customer, I have decided to frequent my local shop on a regular basis to help offset the loss of your 18,000 bigoted boycotters.
FYI – maybe if you all spent as much time on your own marriages as you do on trying to prevent others from marrying we might not be saddled with a 40-50% divorce rate in the US. I won’t even get into how your behavior on this isssue is so counter to true Christian ideals as to be unrecognizable as such. I guess the thrill of teaching your kids to hate is just too enticing to pass up.
Gee, aren’t you all so proud? Oh wait, isn’t excessive Pride the most serious of the…cough…right.
