Well, I saw the UPS truck and was all “YES!!! My IRON MAN LAMP IS HERE!!!
But it wasn’t. Behold my bum-med-ness. Scooter and I are drowning our sorrows in chocolate soy milk and popcorn while we watch the new Spiderman movie preview. Which I will share here in a minute. After I…clarify a few things.
I am not a dude. Seriously, not. a. dude. You would think the descriptions on the blog of my epic frankenstein-scar-of-baby-having would clue people in but apparently, not so much.
I do not want to see pictures of any of you all in your underwear. I am not telling you not to take the pics ’cause I would never harsh anyone’s “hey, look at me rockin’ my jockeys” vibe — just PLEASE don’t send them or link them to me.
I will not put your ad up on the blog. Stop asking. Well, unless you are the awesome Daniel Logan and want me to toss a thing up about your gear biz ’cause I would be super willing to do that in exchange for a few pictures of Jack‘s cat.
Okay, enough grumbling. Have a movie preview vid:
2011 was an exceptional year for music and I am so happy I was able to listen to so much of it. I can’t do ‘Best of’ list since I just can’t chose which was the best but I do have a few favorites I want to toss out before the year is done.

Closer to You by The Coronas
Mergers and Aquisitions by Have Gun Will Travel
Keep Your Devils Around by American Scarecrows
Revelator by the Tedeschi Trucks Band

- Favorite New Singer(s) -
Jake Smith (aka The White Buffalo), Charlie Spraggs and Leslie Craig
- Favorite Song(s) -
Shook Up by Viv and the Revival, Wild Hearts by American Scarecrows and Break Me by Steve Carlson
Favorite Music Vid – This was so, so very hard to pick.

High points (music-blog-wise) for me in 2011 include Twitter (how did I live without for so long?), Daniel Logan and Jack Moore (again, how did I live without for so long), StageIt and Reverbnation, Ninebullets Radio and the daily posts, pics and videos from The Coronas while they recorded their new album in LA.
No list of mine would be complete without a quiet ‘thank you’ to Virgil Dickerson of Suburban Home Records. In May of 2007 he put up a free sampler cd of SHR bands on eMusic and I snagged some tracks. I had already moved to mostly blues and some indie in my music but finding those bands tipped the scales for me. Nearly five years later almost all the music I enjoy comes from small labels like SHR.
Got a 2011 list of your own? Toss it in the comments section as I am always looking for new bands to squee over.
Ack..it is almost not the 2nd.
So this is probably cheating, or at least straining the spirit of the November post-a-day challenge but whatever.
Daniel Logan was listening to The Ordinary Boys and linked to this vid of their shiny new song, Run This Town. It’s rock, but all mod and bouncy and fun.
