I've been in love with this band since first listen. The guys in Cage The Elephant turned me on to this band, hailing from the same hometown of Bowling Green, KY. Their debut album, 'Celebrasion' was a Top 5 album of 2011 in my teeny weeny humble little opinion.
Now they're back. Their sound has matured and evolved a bit. Meaning they've got a bit more polish, yet they're able to hang on to the kooky quirky beauty that makes them Sleeper Agent.
ESPECIALLY on a snow filled day like today, kick back and take in some "waves".....at least pretend to dip your toes in the sand.
Sleeper Agent - "Waves"
Thought I'd also include a couple of my faves from the previous album, 'Celebrasion', that I raved about above.
Check out "That's My Baby" acoustic at Tennessee State Prison
And "Proper Taste". This one absolutely rips. I. LOVE. IT.
I'm not even a "trekkie" and this still gave me a good chuckle. I can't even imagine how long it takes to go through footage to find the words needed, then edit it all together. I can respect the silliness.
Alright, together now, let's get in the holiday spirit......
Well, I find this impossible to believe, but apparenlty the "muffin top" has, officially, become embedded in pop culture. Dare I say, even, iconic? I mean, if you have baking cups made in your honor, you're iconic right?
If this doesn't make ya hungry, I don't know what will.
I know what you're thinking right now, you're thinking I know EXACTLY who would want these. Who doesn't have someone on their list these are perfect for!? Get these beauties RIGHT HERE!
Soooooo.....I was pretty proud of the lights we put up on our house for the holidays. (Never really done anything with lights in the past). Tried to keep it classy with a pretty combo of blue and white.......
It's over 2,000 lights overall. Like I said, I was feeling pretty accomplished, kind of mantastic.
Then I saw this............
Thanksgiving can be a hectic time what with all the traveling, cleaning, cooking and everything else that goes into hosting or attending a holiday feast. With so much going on last week, it's pretty easy to see how I managed to miss this clip but as soon as I spotted it today I knew it was too good not to share. Plus my Mom always said, better late than never.
Check out Jimmy Fallon with Rashida Jones + Carrie Underwood rockin' a medley of some new holiday gems set to the tune of some of this year's biggest hits:
It's equal parts funny, awkward and ACTUAL newscast. I'm surprised how straight Ron Burgundy plays this one.
Please please, pretty please, don't make this shaving be for nothing. I've had facial hair in some form my entire adult life, a beard for the last 4 years. Think about it. I've NEVER fully, clean shaved my face. Until now. That must tell you this is cause that's worth supporting. PLEASE DONATE HERE
Here is the face on Day 4. The stache is starting to fill in. Ways to go yet though.
I'm incredibly uncomfortable. I hate my face this way. Super self conscious, However, I know for a fact that there are TOO many men out there FAR more uncomfortable than me as they're fighting the nastiest disease on Earth. That jack ass known as cancer. Cancer got my hero, my Grandpa, and it just affects far too many people in general.
UPDATE: I've become slightly comfortable with the stache. Not enough to keep it though. Sunday will mark the day the beard begins it's return.
I've partnered with the Minnesota Wild for their #Movember campaign. Throughout the month of November we will raise awareness and funds for cancers affecting men. PLEASE visit my page and give, whatever you can. ONE dollar. FIVE dollars. TWENTY-FIVE dollars. Whatever. If ya can't spare even a dollar, please share this across all social media platforms.
THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL SUPPORT!!
Haven't posted "One Piece Of Good News" lately......this DEFINITELY works.
I don't really have much to add to this. I think the video speaks for itself. Makes ya feel good. Gives a sense of hope for our future as well.
This is a TOP 10 STORY of 2013. Ok, I added a little. Just watch it. Can't, not, smile.
I've been spreading the word of the this band since late 2011. I love them. I love them. I love them. They are, simply, one of the BEST LIVES BANDS ON EARTH. Period. The end. Performances are almost never any good on TV, yet this one gave me chills from head to toe. I had chills in my knees even. No kidding.
My feeling is, if you don't "get it" after watching this.....you never will. My guess is almost everyone does get it at this point. This band is just phenomenal. Friendly reminder, they're coming back in March. Details can be had here. I'd get tickets now if you wanna go. This one WILL sell out.
