Kids from the paintball field hit me up all the time after I teach them to be more effective killers and such, but I use it to keep track of my daughters.

A girl I dated all through junior high and after graduation spotted me, sending the message: "Just wanted to say hi. My God Michael - you are still a hottie!!"
Now - I ask you... fellas... how could I not at LEAST say thanks???
Every female reading this right now is saying: "Oh no you didn't."
Completely innocent, trust me. Cujo knows she is my sweetie.

Anyhoo - I started thinking about all of the music (which I equate with every moment of my life), and realized that even when I was still in school (gradgitatted in 79') that "All The World's A Stage" was the most incredibly influential work that I had discovered. "2112" was worn completely out... twice, as was ATWAS. Amazing that something that had so much meaning - so many years ago, still has the same emotions and drama and love and heartache and... dammit... <sniffle>
Boomer, pour me a Mac 12 will ya mate? make it four fingers tall.


THIS girl says be careful....

Jethro Tull Benefit will do me whilst painting a 3RD coat of KILZ in the spare bedroom!
Listening to the new Foo Fighters CD "Wasting Light". A lot harder overall than the previous album, though that's sort of a given as Butch Vig produced it. I love it. If I were going to compare it to another FF CD, maybe "The Colour And The Shape". I don't have a lone favorite track - "White Limo" sounds a LOT like Queens of the Stone Age. "Rope", "Miss the Misery" and "These Days" are probably the standouts for me.

Oh - and if you're looking for a DVD to tide you over til the new Rush live DVD comes out - "Live Love in London" by King's X. Been a hardcore fan of these guys for 20 years and this DVD contains so many of the reasons why.

Meow.

That's who that is! The alternative station here has been playing this song forever, but I couldn't catch the band's name.

I'm privately addicted to bluegrass and Irish fiddle music(I guess that's not "private" anymore) so they fit right into that type of music.
I will have to tell my sister about them. She's more addicted to folk/bluegrass/Irish music than I am!

Nothing wrong with admitting that Nettie! folk/bluegrass/Irish music is cool!
nettie - if it would help, if yur gonna listen to bluegrass - SCOOT THE HECK OVER and lemme listen too! I listen to Allison Krauss Ricky Skaggs Orange Bottom Boys....love bluegrass. I aint too proud to admit that bluegrass holds a special place for me. I guess my favorite is Allison Krauss (wuf!) but there are tons of bluegrass artists out there who can tear it up. Yeah I am always a rocker, but bluegrass makes me feel like the hillbilly I am!
