Man things are moving slowly today. Could it be that our lack of rain has caused the internets to start dying?
Hello Governor, Is That You?
Rarely does procrastination pay off. Yesterday was one of those rarities. For a few weeks I have been scheduled to give a presentation on Thursday of this week. For one reason or another, be it interruptions at work or a week’s long vacation the presentation didn’t write itself, so I planned to knock it out yesterday. Before I could even start I received a phone call from the person who scheduled the presentation and he canceled the meeting. I like it when things work out in my favor.
It Was Like Finding An Old Friend
Remember that Toenut CD I found in a thrift store in Williams, Arizona? I finally got around to playing it and sure enough it was the same Atlanta based Toenut that I remember from the mid-90’s. In doing a little more research on Toenut I found out that the CD I purchased, which was titled “Information”, was the predecessor to the CD “Two In The Pinata” disc that I possessed. It turns out that Toenut released three CDs in total, the last of which was under the band name Tyro.
This has been your Mid-90’s Indie Rock Minute.

I liked the way that the moon was rising over the cliff.
I promise to stop boring you with vacation photos very soon.
There’s No Crying In Hell’s Kitchen!
Casting directors for today’s RealiTV have really hit their peak. On last night’s opening episode to season three of Hell’s Kitchen they managed to get a 48-year old man who cries at the drop of a (cowboy) hat, and a Waffle House line cook who gets shunned by her all-female team. I don’t expect any groundbreaking RealiTV out of this series, but I will enjoy watching it.
With the opening of each season Chef Ramsay has each contestant prepare their own “signature dish.” Last night I started to wonder what I would prepare if put in that scenario. I still haven’t figured it out. What would you whip up?
CD Pick Of The Week
I have to be honest, nothing on the new release shelf really thrills me today. Artists such as Paul McCartney, Chris Cornell, and Marilyn Manson were once relevant, but have no relevancy in my current world. I’m certainly not going to pick the new release from Big & Rich. And I have never heard of any of the other bands / people releasing discs today.
I guess that I’ll be giving that new, old Toenut CD a few extra spins this week instead.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
