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 would like to go back to bed and start today over. Like, maybe tomorrow.
GamingHUD has a staff position open for a Community and PR person. Dean is a great guy to work with and Gaminghud is just a cool site.
I have a lot of new tracks up on the jukebox and a few more to add over the next couple of days. Scooter and I were going to hit the Farmer’s Market this morning but due to a combination of rain and both of us feeling bleh I decided to go Saturday instead.
Here is my music log for May 8, 2012:
Yesterday was busy so my music listening was sporadic and all over the map. I ran thru part of Seven, the new release from Viv and the Revival while I worked on my review, played The Record Company for all my up-and-moving-around stuff and braved iTunes to preview and pick up 45 by The Gaslight Anthem.
Also played some new The Carpels, Amends and Right Away, Great Captain. Our classical thing for the day was Water Music by Handel.
And finally, the small section of Scooter’s ‘Go to Sleep’ Playlist we listened to last night -
I’ll Play for You – Seals and Crofts
I’m No Angel – Gregg Allman
Ordinary World – Duran Duran
Tuesday’s Gone – Lynyrd Skynyrd
Heroes or Ghosts – The Coronas
Hush – Deep Purple
I Can Hear Music – She and Him
Hallelujah – Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses
Yes, I have songs on the go to sleep list that make no sense (Hush for one) but they make her fall asleep so they stay.
