Cozy crawlin’

I was out of town last weekend and didn’t get to join in the SnugPubCrawl festivities, but it sure sounds like they had fun.  I was following the hashtag (#snugpubcrawl) on twitter and vicariously enjoying myself.  This is why social media is fun. It’s SOCIAL!

Political correctness?

Why do people brag about being “politically incorrect”?  I heard it this morning in a bluegrass song.  Now I know that typically country and bluegrass skew to a certain demographic and a bluegrass collaboration with Travis Tritt, even more so, but this lyric struck me: I’m a little rough around the edges I didn’t come…

Inappropriate

This is just completely inappropriate. What are we telling young people that there is a stripper pole at a KIDS SHOW!?  A CHILD dancing one a stripper pole.  My friend Katie pointed out that the young girls who are seeing this oversexualized message are then hit with the “Just Wait” campigns at school and church. …

John Hughes, R.I.P

Wow. Just wow. I asked him if he would be my pen pal. He said yes. “I’d be honored to be your pen pal. You must understand at times I won’t be able to get back to you as quickly as I might want to. If you’ll agree to be patient, I’ll be your pen…

Rickey Henderson’s Number One Fan

Several years ago, I mysteriously received a subscription to Sports Illustrated.  Shortly thereafter, I received a subscription to Stuff, by Maxim, as well (my then military boyfriend, thought I was the greatest when he got three Stuffs and the Swimsuit Issue in a care package!) .  DT and I were watching the reporting about Rickey…

Week of Bonnaroo and more

We made it to another Bonnaroo last weekend.  I’d bet I’m still recovering!  A coworker asked me what artists I saw and I had a hard time remembering them all.  This is not due to any extreme alcohol consumption,  more because of the sheer number of acts we saw in such a short time.  I’ve…

Friends on TV

I usually take Saturday mornings to learn a little about what’s going on in popular music, or at least what’s popular on the video front.  I don’t ever watch the WHOLE thing, but as I scan the news channels, I do linger on vh1’s Top 20 Countdown to catch a few videos here and there….

I love my Wii Fit

Well I love the Wii in general, but honestly, we don’t play it as much as I thought we would.  I am enjoying the Wii Fit though.  If  for no other reason than the yoga (although there are many other reasons).  I am not the yoga type.  Well, I am not the yoga-in-front-of-others type.  You…

This is amazing

Somewhere there is a copy of this video set to “I will always love you” and I swear, it almost made the grumpiest of men weepy.  Anyway, I couldn’t find it in a rush so here’s the original copy. Evidently the video was shot in 2007 at Kruger National Park and became “an instant viral…

New music in the house

Today we picked up B’s new mandolin from Pick n Grin where it was being re-strung and set up. I bought from my friend Benny (thanks, Benny!) as a gift for B, I had wanted to get him one as a wedding gift but couldn’t so. I got it nearly in time to be an…

There’s music in my memories…

He told me something very wonderful.  I cried.  I knew at that moment, it would be one of the happiest moments of my life.  And then I noticed the song on the radio.  Now, I love Rod Stewart’s Maggie May as much as the next person, but I can honestly say, when I realized it…

Billy Joe Shaver!

I’m really looking forward to seeing Billy Joe Shaver tonight at the Shed at Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson.  We went to see Todd Snider there earlier in the year and I really really like the venue.  Its completely covered, so if it does rain, we’re still safe and dry!  The sound was great when we saw…
