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
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 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,
Happy New Year!
