LINCOLNS SAYS UNCOOL jay leno

Jay Leno recently invited Mary Todd and me to a personal dinner in Los Angeles, an invitation that we were baffled to receive but accepted anyways. Even though neither Mary Todd nor myself were fans of his, we figured it would be rude to turn the offer down, and we like to think that we are not rude people like Stonewall Jackson’s family.

We arrived at the restaurant, which admittedly was very nice, a few minutes after Leno apparently had arrived. When we walked through the door he greeted us with a smug smile and told us he had already scoped out the best table in the house. So we followed him into the restaurant, eventually stopping at a table that was occupied by Conan O’Brien. Continue reading

LINCOLN SAYS UNCOOL kate gosselin

About a month ago, Mary Todd became obsessed with the idea of taking a tour of the television channel, TLC’s, headquarters. Over the years I have learned not to question her strange passions (such as becoming a Seal impersonator, starting a magazine devoted entirely to pictures of caterpillars, and trying to become a pterodactyl) as there is no stopping the crazy. So in any case, we made the trip. Continue reading

Reviewment: Grizzly Bear & Beach House Live At the NorVa

From time to time I shall take a break from writing about what is uncool and opinionate about movies, music, & sometimes even other things! Basically, I shall do these whenever it is Mary Todd’s time of the month. That time which happens every month when she forces me to try and be more “hip” with the younger generations and such.

Last night, Beach House opened for Grizzly Bear at the NorVa in Norfolk, Virginia. Mary Todd and I had the pleasure of attending.

New Features and News and Cats!

So, the College of William & Mary radio station’s website, Vinyl Tap, has invited me to humbly state what is uncool on their website from time to time while also reviewing new music that comes into the station. I have graciously accepted!

Anyways, I will now be posting my reviewments on this site as well. I am telling you this so your brains don’t become confused when I write about something that in fact, could be cool. I know, you are probably thinking to yourself, “this is all happening so fast,” or maybe even, “Lincoln, do you think we could slow it down a little, I don’t think I’m ready.” But unfortunately, no, we can not. The train is already at full speed and someone cut the brakes (because that is just how trains work). This is the way it is going to be now.

And now the new cat I promised! (We ended up only having a big enough budget for one, not multiple new cats) Continue reading

Reviewment: Rainbow Arabia’s Kabukimono EP

From time to time I shall take a break from writing about what is uncool and opinionate about movies, music, & sometimes even other things! Basically, I shall do these whenever it is Mary Todd’s time of the month. That time which happens every month when she forces me to try and be more “hip” with the younger generations and such.

Rainbow Arabia recently released their second EP effort, Kabukimono, on Manimal Vinyl Records which released Bat For Lashes first album.

LINCOLN SAYS UNCOOL pre-ripped clothes

Tad’s school recently invited me to come in and give a speech to the student body about the values of honesty. Mary Todd, who had just finished watching a segment of Dr. Phil about how married couples should try spending absolutely all of their time together, read this personal invitation over my shoulder, as she often does, and insisted that she come along as well. Even though she isn’t known as Honest Mary Todd and if I could be quite honest Abe about it, probably wasn’t going to add much to the presentation, I allowed her to accompany me to Tad’s school.

She then rolled around on the floor and sang “Rocket Man” in a continuous loop for forty-five minutes because, if I could be honest Abe about it again, Mary Todd is crazy. Continue reading
