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
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.
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
A few weeks ago, I received a letter in the mail from a group named “UFC,” inviting me to partake in a “Grand Competition of Fearlessness, Honor, and Blood.” Since I had never heard of this “UFC,” and because I am aware I have a reputation as a “great debater,”*
I assumed the UFC standed for something such as United Forensics Club and that I was being invited to participate in a debate that would require “fearlessness” of opinions, “honor” in keeping with the rules, measures, and above all the truth, and “blood” for the use of keeping our bodies alive throughout the whole debate. Sadly upon arrival, this did not turn out to be the case. Continue reading
Somewhat recently, I had the pleasure of riding with my son by horse and carriage (the only form of transportation at the time, kids. Riding on top of a horse wasn’t invented until 1937 and the invention of walking wasn’t even until 1958!) to Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego. Although I knew riding by horse and carriage all the way from our humble Illinois home would be a bit arduous, Tad had been nagging me to take him so he could see the new Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day trailer for quite some time, and luckily for him I knew nothing of Boondock Saints I: Many, But Not Quite All of the Saints Day.
