Out with the old!

Posted by Mick under Music, Personal, TV (No Respond)

And now the hands of time are standin’ still
Midnight angel, won’t you say you will?
We’re running with the shadows of the night
So baby take my hand, you’ll be alright
Surrender all your dreams with me tonight
They’ll come true in the end.
A lesser man than me might try to tie those lyrics in to a larger theme [...]

Melt The Ice Away!

Posted by Mick under Music, Personal (No Respond)

Melt the ice away
That’s what they say
Say it, say it, say it’s safe
Yeah, you can do what you want
You can be what you want
It’s a bad bad world
Yes, you know they can hurt
I’m the same as you, I need loving too.
That’s the song of the day, my friends.  A classic from Budgie, a little known [...]

These are the days that try men’s souls

Sorry folks, not every post here is going to be candy colored unicorns dancing in the sun.
The last day or so has been . . . challenging.  We’ll say challenging, because I’ve heard from one or two sources (mainly my parents) that my vocabulary tends to be a little blue, and I figure I’ll save [...]

Venus!

Posted by Mick under Mastodon Dethklok, Personal (No Respond)

She’s got it
Yeah baby, she’s got it
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
That’s completely apropos of nothing, but it just seemed like the best possible opening tonight. Bananarama, in very small doses, is one of my guilty pleasures.
We are back in Austin, relaxing before we return to our [...]

It’s a big sweet Christmas

Posted by Mick under Mastodon Dethklok, Personal (No Respond)

Christmas day is almost over, and I’m sad to see it go.
In keeping with the spirit of the last few months, this Christmas was quite different from previous years.  Probably the biggest difference – it’s the first I’ve spent away from my family in more years than I can count (especially at this time of [...]

Magic Christmas Tree

Posted by Mick under Film, Personal (No Respond)

It’s Christmas Eve, and while I’m neither in New York nor the drunk tank, I am listening to The Pogues’ “Fairytale of New York” so it feels like I’m elsewhere.
Where am I?  As of this moment, I am in Bryan, Texas.  For those of you not “in the know”, Bryan is a small town best [...]

OH SNAP! Look what I saw.

Posted by Mick under TV (No Respond)

Several of my friends have been giving me a hard time about watching TV lately.  Strangely enough, no one is giving me the “Television is a vast wasteland speech”.  No, what I’m getting is the “Why would you actually watch TV live?” speech.
For the record, TV is indeed a vast wasteland, but that’s not a [...]

I guess we went live…

Posted by Mick under Blog News (No Respond)

That’s right, friends and neighbors.  It seems that while I was still playing with the settings and obsessing over stuff that will not matter for weeks, my lovely partner in crime decided to go public with the blog.
She’s probably right.  It’s better to let you see the chaos that occurs as we get the shop [...]

And so it begins!

Well, it hasn’t really started yet, but . . .
I’m leaving this post behind, so that future visitors to the site can look back and see what things were like in the before time.  2009 is going to be the year that I buckle down and work towards a major life change.  It may not [...]
