I went sledding for a bit, sans sled. From the top step of my mom’s back porch to the (now broken) legs of her barbeque grill. Thankfully my bruised assbone evoked enough pity from said mother to pry away three Lortabs.
Saito deal: his deal with the Brewers is worth a maximum of $3.2 million, which is equivalent to what he earned in 2010. The base salary is lower and comes with incentives based on playing time and time spent on the active roster.
Watched Back to the Future with my 10 and 7 year old last night. Damn that movie stands up. But a lot more swearing in it than I remembered.
LEAH – Just downloaded “I and Love and You.” It’s my first Avett Bros. album. I’m really liking it. Cannot get enough of “And it Spread,” particularly and really like a lot of the other cuts. What other non-live albums of theirs do you particularly like?
Oh my goodness where to begin…
It’s hard to keep straight which songs are on which Albums. I and Love and You is absolutely the best. Four Theives has Distraction #74, Colorshow, and Talk on Indolence. But you absolutely must hear Paranoia in B Major, Shame (boat loads), and Ballad of Love and Hate from Emotionalism. Also, Murder in the City, At the Beach…you just can’t go wrong with the Brothers. I’ll preach to you like I do Bubdylan…you have to see them live. I’m heading to Asheville tomorrow night in fact.
Heard this group on Radio Paradise and resisted them at first (hated the name, and every zippy-wow Hunchback of Notre Dame song makes me think somebody’s trying to by Dylan), but the lyrics here are actually meaningful/ not contrived. I think I’ll keep a look out for them.
