Seems Mother Nature finally took a break from the Parkay/butter debate and noticed that its supposed to be Fall. FINALLY we’re out of the 90s and expecting some much needed rain later today.

Windows are open.

Gonna chillax on the couch and read and try The Event…see if it’s gonna keep my interest. (PS3 owners…you can download the first HD eppy for free)

Laundry is done…which including the usual darks….whites…towels…iPod shuffle….d’oh! She’s airing out as we speak.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

The Language of Love…

Congrats to my local yokels for getting to play The Filmore last night in San Fran.

…and its a reminder that I really need to pony up for some music storage ’round here.

It also reminds me that I’m glad a certain ditzy cheerleader is back on my TV screen — “Stop the Violence”…heh.

VideoEgg Will Acquire Six Apart And Rename Itself SAY Media.

Say say say
What you want
But don’t play games
With my affection
Take take take
What you need
But don’t leave me
With no direction

(not that I posted much in the past year….but I never pass up a chance to be offended, slighted and/or wronged)

Procrastination done bit me in the arse…


So I star a lot of things in Google Reader….esp. during the workday (cause I’m like working really hard and stuff) so I can check it out later…Problem is — later sometimes turns into ‘too late’…

And now I’ve been denied.

Sold Out! You missed your chance, friend


Now I have to go all DIY*.

Frankenmascot…you will be in my kitchen…ya heard!

*unless the wonderfully talented artist wants to hook up a fan with that extra print he found in his cereal box…winkwink

What Up?

Whole lot of nothin’. As usual.

Still running…although I took the last week off cause allergies or some kind of funk was kicking my butt. Doing better now and ran 2 miles this morn’. Average 3 or so miles a run….2-3 times a week.

Got promoted at work. I’m now an “IS Specialist”……yeah, I don’t know, either. Apparently it means you fumble around in the proverbial dark for almost a year and then get a raise. I’m OK with that.

Only other big thing I can think of at the moment was last weekend’s inaugural Hopscotch Music Festival here in Raleigh. Awesome time, it was. I volunteered on Thursday night (which consisted of hanging out in front of Kings Barcade checking wristbands…other bars at the really good shows so we were pretty dead and ended up shooting the shit all night with the part time doorman/part time stand up comedian.) and was able to get in free to shows for the rest of the weekend.

Saw a lot of good bands and lots of good people watching. (hipsters are so sneeringly interesting!)


harlem killed!

Favorite show? Harlem.  Their main show was Friday night but they also played one of the day parties at Slim’s….which is where I caught them. So good!

My homegrown favorite, The Love Language opened for Public Enemy on Saturday and were also oh so good.

Hmmmm….what else?

New toys? iPhone and an iPad. Love them both. Especially the iPad. Didn’t think I’d enjoy reading books on something like this but once I saw that it tells you how many pages are left in a chapter…I was sold.  It’s the little things.

Reading? Actually going old school at the moment with a library book (and I’ll really be set when they come out with the Apple version of the book loaning/downloading/whatever software)….Ape House by Sara Gruen. Surprisingly loved “Water For Elephants” so thought I’d give it a shot. I don’t expect it to be as good as Water (and from reviews….that seems like a smart move)….but it involves sign lanuaging bonobos and who can resist monkeys with mad skills?

I’m really ready for the Fall TV season to begin. I got rid of cable (I know, right) almost a year ago…and although I’ve been fine using my PS3/Play On Software and Netflix…I’m ready for some new Glee and Modern Family!

New Music….just picked up the new SuperChunk (!?) and The Drums (gah….been available digitally since June and the CD just came out what? last week?…no wonder indy stores are having such a hard time! Love them both….but gonna leave ya with some Harlem.

Till I decide whether it’s worth it to plunk down duckets on storage….we’ll be going ghetto with YouTube…which is kinda appropriate for Harlem, no?…(yeah…they are from Austin and the actual Harlem probably hasn’t been a ghetto since Willis and Arnold left….but whatever)

Catch y’all later….
