Pistons up 10 on the Heat to start the 4th. Can't wait to see how they gack this one away.
OT: Friday Night Open Thread
Timeout, down to 4.
Holy shit, the Pistons won.
don't really like Duke at all but what a crappy way to lose a game.
The Tangerine Bowl (using the Seth-approved name) mercifully ended with a missed FG by Rutgers, so I am pleased to be switched to the Meineke Car Care Bowl, where I just watched the tail end of a kick return go to the house. That one play was more interesting the previous game in toto.
I am curled up with the laptop with a Sam Adams Winter Lager here as my wife dozes on the other side of the sofa. After an admittedly less-than-productive short week at work, I am ready for this four-day weekend and cornucopia of bowl games.
That's the Bluebonnet Bowl*.
"...and listening to some Childish Gambino, Macklemore, Theophilius London..."
I must be completely out of the music loop...as I have no idea who or what those are. I guess I need to get out more.
H/T to a2_electricboogaloo and B-Nut-GoBlue from MGoBlog for getting Macklemore and Theophilius London on my radar. I'm not great finding new music, but they're worth checking out if you like the genre (indie hip hop is a pretty fair assessment, I think).
Isn't that on Cinemax right now?
Either that or DirecTV is charging us $4.99 to watch it for 90 minutes.
ever. Eating Apple Chex, btw, and nursing a hangover. (My wife gave me a bottle of Glenmorangie for Xmas.)
when it comes to discovering cool new cereals for me. Kinda low on fiber, but wth.
Good digestive health is a must.
At a Japanese place right now. I'll probably head back and finish off Entourage before going to bed relatively early.
Glad Theophilus is still in your repertoire. I'm finding him (well, found out long ago) that he's becoming pretty timeless. There's never a time when something of his doesnt fit the mood/atmosphere.
Macklemore is becoming quite the popular artist too. Sad I missed him while he was in Iowa for for a few shows (close to home too, and when he was at Lollapalooza).
They're not a new band but still under the radar, the Japandroids are a duo of rock/punk I've been listening to a lot lately. Also listening to Kashmir off the new Led Zeppelin live album from their 2007 show; pretty damn good rendition.
I liked it, the girlfriend really did. She's much more into the whole music scene than I am and probably has a better ear for "good". Listening to some A$AP Rocky now, I'm really looking forward to his new album in January; I'm convinced he'll be a star shortly.
Great amp-you-up song! Agree on A$AP. I think he'll blossom up into something on the level of, say, somebody like Young Jeezy but maybe not quite that "big"; not comparing the two whatsoever but that was the name that popped in my head as to "how big" I think he'll become. I'm trying to think of some other newer stuff I've been digging or searching for but either my mind isn't working or I'm realizing I've been a bit lazy on my music game these past couple months. A bar/dance-floor bar I've frequented lately has been playing Avicii's Levels so I've started to listen to that quite a bit and it gets me a good mood; I don't like myself for it and it's not new music (calling it music is debateable), but yea, that's been happening.
I don't think he's a year off from being Kanye West (or that he'll ever be, although the two have at least a few things in common personally), but I do think A$AP is someone your average B96 or KissFM listener will be able to name shortly, which is about what you're saying.
Everything is purple!
I must be getting old..
Working an overnight at the hospital on floors. Drinking Diet Coke. Giving lots of kids O2...should be a fun night.
/going to Third Eye Blind at the fillmore tomorrow night, a band I've been wanting to seen since the late 90's. Very excited about it, much more so than tonight.
Stephen Jenkins (et. al.) is a pretty good musician. I've never seen them live by any means but seen a few shows through video/tv outlets and they seem to do a good job. CAN I GRADUATE
I've seen some of the videos, never had a chance until now to see them live. My wife is a huge fan (she almost lost it when I got her a signed LP for her birthday) so she's really excited as well (this is part of her Christmas gift). I'm trying to arrange Slow's BBQ for dinner before as well, should be a great night.
Stephen Jenkins tried to bang my wife after a show about 7-8 years ago (before I met her). Not a fan
Sounds to me like he tried to...
Just got done working. At the bar celebrating my promotion to bartender, drinking a thunderbolt red.
If you hosers are ever through Evansville, IN and are pining for a pint and some Michigan talk, stop by Turonis Main Street Brewery. Both of us bartenders are big M fans, now.
Drink one for me tonight!
My teammate is playing hoops there next year. Go Purple Aces!
At Mullett Lake for the holidays. Got to get a snowmobile one of these days.
Just shared a bottle of Founders Bolt Cutter with a good buddy. And cracked a bottle of Laphroiag Triple Wood afterward. I'm happy.
Not sure if I have a 2 day hangover or the flu...
Zombie Dust and a Hoptimum thus far. It's been a tough two-day week working as a real live attorney
Went to a wedding on Sunset Key. Had some kind of special Bacardi, but it wasn't as good as my Sailor.
Went to dinner at Latitudes and had some form of red wine with my steak.
Enjoying a couple of bottles of Johnny Labatt's Red Amber Lager, and trying to watch these "bowl" games. I may have to switch to something much stronger to get through the last one.
Driving South on the 15, drinking tall boys with my brother. Living it up at The Hard Rock Hotel tonight. Happy New Years, everybody.
Stays there...unless you're drinking and driving. Be safe, my friend.
Your quivers are full indeed.
Did you milk the cows?
Is it Friday? I'm so confused.
I had a Ballast Point Sculpin after spending the day at Balboa Park.
Starting with Jameson on the rocks, then switching to a 6 pack of Fixed Gear.
Sweetwaters IPA and shots of apple pie.
Glad to hear you're still rocking the Macklemore. I made it to his concert a month of so ago, it was awesome. I'd definitely recommend it if you get the change
And yeah, I'm glad I took the time to read that random post of yours; it paid off, so thanks. Anyone coming to Ann Arbor to welcome y'all back? I'll be in town the 9th/10th.
and we're doing a two person power hour (10 left). If we end up watching the Lion King I probably won't be complaning or surprised, as long as we make food first.
But it's always good to be prepared.
I watched the Clippers come back from 19 down, late in the third, at Utah - a place they never win - on the 2nd night of a back-to-back, 4th game in 6 days. I figured the streak was ending tonight, but they won another one. CP3 is just amazing.
Read with my wife and son, put him to bed, then watched "Awakening" (Robin Williams) with my wife. Oh, and had a glass of beer and cider.
Had a Sculpin IPA followed by Zombie Dust before heading out to 9:30 Club in DC To catch Jane's Addiction. Perry and Dave still have it. Tremendous show!
