Taking A Break

Not that I have been a blogging machine or anything like that, but I just thought I would officially announce that this blog is on hiatus. At least for awhile.

That is all.

Are You Mocking Me?

You may or may not know that I am a sucker for covers. Most covers anyway. I prefer them to be sort of fun thing for the band to do that entertains me. Maybe something for the encore at a concert or a bonus track on an album or something whipped up for a movie soundtrack. Whatever really. But, I think it is a little corny when say, Limp Bizkit did that cover of Faith. Don't get me wrong, it was a cool idea to do that cover, and God knows it was catchy, but it was corny to make it the single that essentially introduced the band to the world. Anywho, now that I've said all that (for pretty much zero reason), I just wanted to share this particular cover that I stumbled across that I find pretty amusing: video

(I tried to embed this video, but it wasn't working, so you're going to have to deal with this unsexy clicking. Also, even though it says that the artist is Rise Against on the side there, it's not. It's Cobra Starship.)

They're Not Playing Grab-Ass Anymore

About a minute into this video this Kodak guy gets ranting pretty nicely:

When selling something, you just can't beat going the crazy route as far as I'm concerned. Besides the crazy/funny, I'm glad to see Kodak seems to have a plan to get back in the game. Keep upstate NY and the good ol' U.S. of A. in the thick of things!

Back To A Clean Slate

So today is a new year. Two thousand and seven! How unexciting.

Last night I did something different for my kicking the old year out and welcoming the new year in routine. I did a 4 mile run in Central Park. Not just by myself. I'm not that much of a loser. I did this. Myself, my wife, three other friends and 5,000 other idiots starting the year off with healthy style. I was concerned that it might have been yet another mistake to add to my list of 2006 retarded moves or a poor, unfestive start to 2007, but when I woke up this morning with some slightly sore legs instead of a headache and cottonmouth, I realized I may have done myself a pretty sweet service. It was fun and wacky and certainly the healthiest thing I have ever done on January 1.

I was trying to recap my previous New Year's activities (it's a tad blurry) and I think this may be the first December 31 to January 1 transition where I haven't been at least drunk, if not completely shitty in 16 years. That figuure makes me feel (a) gross and unhealthy and (b) old.

[In the name of full disclosure, I did have four beers throughout the night, but I don't think that messed with my wits at all.]

Anywho, it's now a new year, so drunk or not, I hope all of you had a nice evening and will have a kickass '07. Leave the stupid bullshit from '06 behind and start fresh. This means you! (and me too). Try my resolution if you'd like. It's this: Don't be an asshole. Word on the street is that this is doomed to fail, but I don't like that street's negativity. Not one bit.
