I Can’t Believe….

That I have not posted here since the Wheldon accident post.

A lot of things have factored into that including but not limited to:

  • General malaise
  • Work projects
  • Laziness
  • Stress
  • Holidays

I think sometimes I promise to readers that I will write more…but I am not sure I mean it.  I don’t really do this for money, and I don’t have the kind of blog that draws huge readership anyway. I like to write about things I see and do.  I like to post cool links and music.  I am going to keep on doing what I do, and I won’t even waste anyone’s time by promising to write more…even though I would like to write more just because.

Anyway I do have some cool things to pass along today, so let’s get to it!

I am a sucker for folks that do great acoustic stuff, and this is the video that turned me on to Kasey Anderson and the Honkies. Give it a  listen, I will wait right here…you can even listen while you read the rest of this stuff.

Good, right?  In the same vein as Jason Isbell. On another musical note.  I just can’t love Bon Iver.  I have tried.  I failed. As I told one friend, Holocene makes me want to jump head-first into a pool of hungry piranha.

I got “American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon” for Christmas, and quickly plowed through it.  Steven Rinella is one cool dude.  I can’t wait for his new show…it is just a few days away.

I have been thinking a lot lately about the time I spent growing up out west.  It seems so long ago now, almost like it was another lifetime.  It was the 80s, so I guess in a way….it was another lifetime. Just last night a post popped up on Google + from a young lady out there named Loree Greco. She posted some photos of Wyoming, so I asked her if I could share one with this post. The timing could not have been better.

I have often said that I would move back out west in a heartbeat, and I guess I always just sort of assumed that I would like to go to Colorado. Now, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of Wyoming. I mentioned this to the wife the other night, and she made a face, and said “Wyoming?  Dear God, why?” I can’t explain it, so I guess sometime soon, I will pack her up (along with our daughter), and take them out to show them just what made Eastern Wyoming such a special place. Linds says that her dream place to move would be Kallispell, Mt.  I guess I can’t really argue with that either.

I wish I had read this before I accepted my last full-time gig

And finally Justified is coming soon…GQ spoke to Timothy Olypahnt

 Not long after Justified premiered, a friend asked Olyphant if he wasn’t worried about being typecast (after all, both Bullock and Givens wear hats).”I’m thinking: typecast? What, as a badass?”

Till Next time,

This is here for a reason.

Happy New Year!
