Congrats to Kelly A. and Dawn J. (both jersey folks) on getting the goods for this months giveaway. Next month we’ll pick one person out of our WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr or Google+ crowd to get a cap and long sleeve t-shirt.
For now I’ll give you the Cancer Bats covering “Sabotage”. I think they did a great job with the song and the video is just awesome in so many ways. Even if you don’t like the cover, you have to give props on the video if you’ve ever been into the Beastie Boys.
The first time I heard this cover was on my Alma Mater’s radio station WSOU. Coincidentally, there’s a fundraiser going on to get a documentary on WSOU done. If you’re inclined to throw it some coin just hop on over to the Pirates of the Airwaves indiegogo page. You’ll get some cool gear if you donate and if you don’t, you’ll still come away with some background on the best college radio station in the country.
Although I’ve posted these ad nauseam, I guess I should show you what we’re giving away in April-
March is a special month around these parts for two reasons:
(1) It’s the month my oldest daughter was born
(2) Fantasy Baseball Drafts start coming online
To celebrate the total awesomeness of this month, we’re going to pick two people out of the pool of folks who follow our blog/practice on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr or Google+ to get a t-shirt and cap. You’ve probably seen them before:
So if you follow the blog but haven’t joined us on any of our social media fronts, this may be the month to do it – this is open to anyone who follows us (new or old).
I’m not going to play detective or Mother Teresa this time (last month was a bit of an annoyance) – if you are picked but don’t have an email addy that’s visible on your end and/or don’t reply back to my email within 48 hours then someone else will get the goods.
Giveaway recipients will be selected and announced during the last week of March or first week of April.
Good luck and thanks for checking in!
in a situation where the day after accidentally closing the door on your two year old daughter’s finger; she wakes up in the morning, immediately points the bandaged finger at you and says:
You did this to me.
My obsession with The Twilight Zone is a bit strange; I remember really getting into it when I was around 10 years old.
I’m not talking about the garbage wannabe series they put out in the ’80’s – I ‘m talking about the hard core Rod Serling stuff back in the day, kid.
I don’t mess around.
Anyway, I decided to put up my top ten list of all time favorite episodes in no particular order, although “The Obsolete Man” is my top pick for sure. There are three things I love about the series:
1. It’s unapologetic position against Fascism and Communism
2. For a TV show, it had a pretty sophisticated method of communicating positions on big moral questions
3. It was creepy as hell
Without further delay here they are (links go to youtube)
The Obsolete Man
One More Pallbearer
The Old Man in the Cave
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge
The Jeopardy Room
Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up
The Midnight Sun
I Am the Night – Color Me Black
So if you live in my state or are into weather you know that NJ has suddenly turned into Minnesota. As a result of this “adjustment” I’ve been a little off my game in the giveaway department. Not all of it is completely my fault; apparently a few of you don’t update your email addresses so reaching out has been problematic. In any case, we have a definite recipient for the February sweatshirt giveaway (congrats Jill Giuliano) and are waiting to hear back from someone else on last months t-shirt and cap giveaway. Next month we’ll probably do the t-shirt and cap thing again.
In the spirit of Valentines Day, I’ve decided to go with one of the worst love songs ever created by a human being. I know that other mammals can also sing but I can’t really hold them accountable due to their inability to reason.
Man, am I ornery or what?
Anyway here it is…..enjoy!
