December is upon us, friends! And you know what that means!!!
Unabashed materialism and gift-giving! America!
I’ve already got the gift for my Mah, Brah, and a few choice others picked out, but i’m sure they’re having a hard time figuring out what to buy me.
Let me make it easy for you.
Without further ado, The 2011 Christmas List!!!
The 12-inch. Not the Buckaroo. Not the Kangaroo. The Walnut. From Nokona. What’s more American than that?
2. The Toshiba Canvio 3.0 500GB External Hard Drive
Because 8MB images from the Nikon are rapidly eating my MacBook’s drive.
3. This Rotation
Wilson, Garza, Darvish, Feliz, Harrison, Holland.
Pick your Favorite Five.
4. Portal 2
Because I am both intelligent and intrigued by puzzles.
Ready for your close-up?
That’s all I have for right now.
I want this to be me in 5-7 years. But, with more hair.
Thanks to Sean & Matt for this one.
A special lady-friend of mine came to visit me in Arizona this weekend, and we went to Sedona, Arizona on Saturday, November 19, and then to the Grand Canyon on Sunday, November 20.
And people claim that God created this.
He wouldn’t have had time.

What’s with all this Brooklyn music!?!!?
Sleigh Bells (which is a pretty weird name for a band that makes music like this) is from Brooklyn, and they’re classified as “Noise-Pop” by their Wikipedia article, which is sort of appropriate. The vocalist, Alexis Krauss, used to be some kind of a model too, and she’s still pretty damn hot.
This is an Anthem, so rock it hard.
Here’s a different song, just to see what they’re like in motion:
YES! Finally! I just finished the book trilogy about 2 weeks ago, and it’s pretty great. Brutal as hell, too. It does not end well for many of these people. Anyways, I really like the look and feel of this trailer. I think they’ve nailed the tone, and I love the actors.
I’m so pumped for this.
Seeing that it’s 11/11/11, I should probably post something about it being Veterans Day, or even Nigel Tunfel Day, right? Wrong. Today is Birdy Day.
Birdy, otherwise known as Jasmine Van den Bogarde, is a 15-year-old (yes, 15) British songbird who was originally discovered when she won the Open Mic UK competition when she was 12. What the hell were YOU doing when you were 12?
Anyways, her first album is now out, and it’s filled with cover songs by original artists like The National, Phoenix, The XX, and of course, Bon Iver. I tried to buy the whole album last night from iTunes, but it’s only on sale in the UK Store right now. Psh.
Prepare to have your mind ripped in half. It may have been the red wine, but the first time I heard this, I almost cried.
