Inspired

I recently gained access to HBO programming…brace yourselves. My first discovery? Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways. I’m completely addicted.

The Louder the Better!

“Play it f@#%in’ loud!” ― Bob Dylan I’m in a mood today…I want lots of punk rock played loud enough that if it were any other day, you’d be worried about the speakers.  ScotsFest begins in Tulsa tonight, and a friend flies in from out-of-state today, and tomorrow we’ll all be there for the music, food, […]

I am making this Star Trek week…because. I won’t be able to do much blog posting this week, and this is what happens when you just keep clicking on YouTube’s videos they recommend based on the one you’re watching.  It just…went boom.
