Back in the my high school days I loved the Anthrax album Attack of the Killer B’s. I was never a huge Anthrax fan, but I loved that album. We would mosh to “Startin’ up a Posse” and “Bring The Noise” before football games. “Bring the Noise” was probably one of the first rap/rock songs. It was Anthrax with Public Enemy. Back then I wanted to hear more of that type of music, but none of it was around. By the time rap/rock stuff finally came out it was all the lame Limp Bizkit crap. I still love to listen to “Bring the Noise” every now and then. Here is a slow folk rock version that kicks ass, but kicks it a little slower.
You know, I really need to get Attack of the Killer B’s on CD. I don’t even know if I have a cassette player around here to play my old tape.
So a little bit about yesterday’s post. Wednesday at work a few coworkers were talking about surgeries and getting epidurals. I got woozy and fainted. I fell flat on my face. I got a nasty rug burn on the site of my face and I think I got a minor concussion. I was in a fog the whole day yesterday and had the worst headache ever. I am feeling much better today, but my face is quite a bit uglier than usual.
So last week I heard the the Smashing Pumpkins are going to be recording a new album. I have herd that Pearl Jam’s new album that come out on the 2nd is better than their last few have been. I am also liking the new Red Hot Chili Peppers’ stuff and their album is coming out on the 9th. Are the 90s coming back?
**Update** Ok, now Alice in Chains are going on tour. What next?
So the NFL draft is coming up this weekend. I plan to be sitting in front of the TV and watching the whole thing. A lot of people find the NFL draft boring. I love it. Watching kids dreams come true. Every kid who has ever played high school football dreams of his name being called out on draft day. Teams think they know how good players are going to be, but it’s really just a crap shot. It’s fun to look back at past drafts and see all the good and bad picks. Here is a nice list of current NFL players that weren’t even drafted. A lot of good players out there that weren’t suppose to be any good.
Occasionally I do the Sudoku in the paper at work. I pretty much suck a them. Early in the week when they are easy I can do them no problem, but come Friday, it’s impossible. I need to study up at this site to get good at them.
About the only food that I don’t like is coconut. Well, today at work someone had some Carmel deLight Girl Scout cookies there. I thought what the hell and I ate a few. They weren’t to bad. Maybe I like coconut now. I have always tried eating things I don’t like to see if I still don’t like them. I use to hate coleslaw and radishes. I kept trying them and never liked them, but now I do like them. If I like coconut now that means I can’t think of one food that I don’t like. I think I am the most unpicky person in the world. So, next time you come across a food you don’t like, try it, maybe you will like it.
I am really liking the new Punchline CD. I saw Punchline in concert and loved them. I bought their first CD from the lead singer outside of the show. Well, last week their new CD 37 Everywhere came out. It is hawsome. Remember three years ago when I was saying how good Fall Out Boy was? Well, Punchline is just as good. We all know how big Fall Out Boy got. Is Punchline going to get as big? Who knows, but they are an awesome band and you should check them out.
Do you wish you could search any site from an open browser? I found a cool feature in FireFox that lets you do just that. Here is how:
Go to a site that you search a lot like IMDB, Amazon, or Wikipedia.
Right click on the search box and select “Add a keyword for this search”.
Then pick a name and a keyword for the search.
Now whenever you want to search that site all you have to do it type the keyword followed by your search term in the address bar.
I have been using this a lot this week. When I wanna search Amazon I just type “a” followed by the search term, Wikipedia, “w” followed by search term. It’s simple and easy and I don’t think many people know about it.
Man it was nice out today. Last time I checked it got up to 72º. We spent most of the afternoon outside. The snow is now officially out of our yard. We got all our outside stuff set up. Tomorrow we will be cranking up the grill. Mmmm, steaks on the grill. I can smell them already.
Since a got my new iPod with video a while back I have been slowing adding the artwork for all my 12,000 songs. It has taken me some time and was slow going. Corripio is a nice little program that I found today that made it easy and I finished them up real quick. It grabs the artwork from iTunes and then adds it to the mp3s. It’s only for the Mac, but if you are looking to add artwork to your mp3s, this is the way to do it.
