The Proverbial Save the Date

August 6th, 2009 No comments »

It’s a done deal.  We’re gettin’ hitched on the May 30th on 2010 at Restaurant Grace.  Apparently someone was headed there today to try and get the same day.  I guess we rained on their parade.

Anyway, if you have plans on Memorial Day of next year, we need to start negotiating with you.

Details!

August 2nd, 2009 1 comment »

Finally, some details!  We went to see Restaurant Grace today in Portland, ME.  Needless to say it was pretty awesome and we are most likely headed that way.  It’s a regular restaurant during the week so getting it on a Saturday night is pretty much out of the question.  I guess people will just have to take a Monday off, and really nobody likes working on a Monday anyway.  They also suggest a cocktail dinner as opposed to plated which we hadn’t considered but we think we might like the whole idea.  It’s a heck of a lot less stressful and that way people can sit wherever they like.

Basically its a good place to have a big party and have a good time.  At the end of the day that’s really what we are looking for.

Take a look at some of pics.  If you are interested in coming, let me know and I will see if I can get you on the list!

This Sinking Ship

January 24th, 2007 No comments »

Not sure if you guys heard but the new Smoke or Fire album is coming out on February 20th. I have heard the whole thing and its really great. You can download one of the songs here. It’s called The Patty Hearst Syndrome and there is a video to go along with it which I am impressed with as well. It was made by Justin Staggs who made some other Fat Records videos and the first Smoke or Fire video. If you’re curious at all about who Patty Heart was here is the Wiki article on her. When the video is released I’ll post a link to it here.

Check out the Smoke or Fire website and Myspace.

Oh, and here’s the tracking listing for the album:

1. What Separates Us All
2. The Patty Hearst Syndrome
3. Melatonin
4. This Sinking Ship
5. Irish Handcuffs
6. Little Bohemia
7. I’ll Be Gone
8. Shine
9. Breadwinner
10. Life Imitating Art
11. Cars
12. Folding the Pages

The Road to Delana

October 27th, 2006 No comments »

Delana! Delana! Delana!

I realized today when looking for photos of Goddard that he actually left New England in 2002. It’s a lot longer than I thought and it made me realize how much I miss that guy. Well that’s about to change. After work today Brett, Al, Bryan, and I are setting off in our rented Dodge Grand Caravan to New Hope, MN. It’s going to be about a 24 hour drive but we’ve got Playstation 2 (specifically God of War) and tons of other ways to entertain ourselves. We might even have an actually conversation between the 4 of us if there’s time, but I doubt there will be.
Monday night we’ll be at the Patriots-Vikings Game in the Metrodome with plenty of tailgating before hand. So look for us on TV, we’ll be the guys with the Patriots gear.

Adam Morrison is radio gold.

October 20th, 2006 No comments »

Adam Morrison has been making us laugh for about 2 years now. Who knew he’d catch on so much that he’s even got his own commercials now. I was a little unsure about people comparing him to Larry Bird, but now we know that won’t happen. Bird was also a country boy and I don’t think he’d ever do a commercial like this.
Thanks to clever marketing by EA games we have great quotes like this:

“In the offseason, my moustache and i will drive around in a muscle car solving mysteries.”

These are to be watched multiple times (thanks Jake!)

Thanks to Nick and Dethroner for pointing out the new Simon Pegg movie Hot Fuzz. Comes out in the UK before the US so that means only one thing

I’ve spent a considerable amount of time on BlankTV which I had heard of before but never really check out. More importantly, I found out they have Avail videos. I really hope music videos in general get better because they really are cool. For instance, (and you can dislike Bright Eyes for plenty of reason), Bright Eyes videos are usually pretty good because they actually put some effort into them.

And the Avail video for West Wye. The singer of Avail actually hops trains to travel around the country and I’m guessing thats what this song is about.

I had heard that Seperate Ways by Journey was one of the worst videos ever made but I couldn’t find any credible sources or rather I couldn’t find a link on Google. After watching it though, I have to agree, it blows.

I’ll admit it does look comfortable, but $185? for a hoodie?

That's crazy, but I'm interested.

The Champagne of Buses

I found my next car.  I am not sure they make a hybrid though.
