Vacation Fail Blog

In all my wisdom, I decided to start a blog right before vacation to lose any traction I may potentially be gaining. Another reason why my mother will surely be my #1 fan no matter what blather I post to the Net.

So, in a lame effort to put SOMETHING up as I stew over my LOST series recap blog, I have decided to post a few of my favorite things over the course of the last month. Enjoy?*

*question mark completely intentional

The National: High Violet

When i first heard The National’s album Boxer in ’07 I wasn’t sure what to make of them. A guy the mumbles with a deep voice over a mish mash of instruments was actually my first thought. But for whatever reason I continued playing the record from beginning to end because something about it was haunting to me.

Fast Forward three years and I am one of their biggest fans. I saw them perform at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh from the upstairs balcony and it was one of the most memorable experiences of my concert going life.

High Violet is a step towards the mainstream for the band (if there is such a thing for these guys from Ohio) and they have a range of sound on this album.  Just like the previous albums they focus mainly on the American way of life – particularly in the Midwest and Matt Berninger talk/sings.  I’ll let you get a real critics take here  in Nicholas Dawidoff’s fascinating profile from the NY Times.

Big Papi/Little Papi

For those of you who doubted the big slugger – and quite possibly my favorite Red Sox player ever alongside Mo Vaughn, Manny Ramirez and The Teammates – shame on you.

This May David Ortiz is batting .361 with 9 Home Runs and 23 RBI’s and he has 2 more games to add to those totals.  Take away his horrendous April this year and this first two months of last season and Americo is hitting .280 with 36 bombs and 104 RBI.

Now I don’t feel as bad about naming my dog Lil Papi (and cursing Big Papi forever) prior to the 2009 season – especially if we can make a playoff run.

Vince Carter hits full court shot sitting down

I think VC knew this was a must in preparation for his playoff choke against the Celtics.  (Side note – I can’t say I ever thoughts Vince Carter would make it onto a blog created by me once, let alone twice in a month but hey, what can ya do.)

Random Favorites

Gordon’s BBQ in Apex, NC. – Looks like a dump, acts like a dump, tastes like something fierce. $4.99 platter on Tuesday’s.

Over The Limit on truTV – Drunk college kids and idiots trying to drive and/or walk get pulled over by cops and made fun of as the slur their speech and say things Mom is surely to be proud of.

Heyyooo!

Strange name for a blog?  Well for starters I am not drunk and if I was eating chicken (I’m not) I would certainly be able to taste each succulent bite.

The name comes from a quote from the very quotable Will Ferrell. Or as I like to call him – the funniest man in the history of our world of humans.

As with most of the blogs available for you to read at every end of the earth featuring topics on every walk of life – this blog may or may not be your cup of tea.

I just felt it was finally time to get some of the random thoughts I have written down, where anyone can access them, so in a few years my 7 followers (Hi Mom!) can see that I was A) Wrong 90% of the time B)An idiot.

I like a lot of random things and will surely cover them all here.  Hopefully I get a chance to chat with you so we can talk about why I am wrong and you are right.

There’s not much to look at now – but come back soon and feel free to look around.  I promise, at the very least, this blog can be an outlet for you to go to work and say, “Have you visited www.toodrunktotastethischicken.com yet.  Wait, of course you haven’t.  Anyways – that guy is an idiot.”

Thanks for coming. See ya’ll soon.
