That thing I do

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

It’s been a good day.  It’s been a real good day.
I slept late.  When I finally roused myself from bed, I was greeted by a pot of coffee and a bowl of “piggies”, Tara’s term for little smoked sausages wrapped in pieces of crescent roll, which is then baked to golden brown perfection.  They are [...]

From Prine to Schneider

But your flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven any more.
They’re already overcrowded
From your dirty little war.
Now Jesus don’t like killin’
No matter what the reason’s for,
And your flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven any more.
I’m not necessarily making another political statement there.  I like John Prine, the song came on, it struck a chord, I put [...]

Was it a win or a loss?

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

Another Sunday where I had so many plans.  Another Sunday where I accomplished almost nothing.
That’s not completely true.  I actually accomplished quite a bit, it just doesn’t look like much on paper.
There’s a phrase that’s quickly becoming an anachronism.  On paper.  Although I did have a stack of index cards and a yellow pad in [...]

Maybe the Shrike can stop it!

Alas, another dream crushed.  Hyperion is finally getting a film treatment, and it’s at the hands of Scott Derrickson.  The man behind the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still is going to make a movie out of one of my favorite books.  Not only will I get a suck movie, but the odds [...]

C’est la vie

Posted by Mick under Mastodon Dethklok, Music (1 Respond)

Do you give
Do you live from day to day?
Is there no song I can play for you?
C’est la vie
Excuse me.  I’m listening to prog, and it gets into my head sometimes.
Why am I listening to prog?  That’s an excellent question, and normally I’d say it’s just because I dig it.  The last two nights, though, [...]

I’ll show you the life of the mind!

All my angels have gone home
Can we use yours?
What a day.  What a damn wonderful day.
We had a meeting at work today.  Our GM, who is as nice a guy as I’ve ever worked with, wants to start a new weekly meeting to keep the team informed of what’s going on and just make sure [...]

I should have been a zookeeper

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

And so I found a place, where everyone will know
My happy mustached face, this is the Cleveland show *giggle*
I’m writing this blog while The Cleveland Show is on in the background.  This does not speak well of The Cleveland Show.  I wouldn’t write during Family Guy.  I might write instead of watching, but if it’s [...]

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 [...]
