Am I capable of sustaining a blog for more than a day or two?

Okay, I just realized that I haven’t done anything with this in about a year and a half. If anyone at all is paying attention, time for me to actually use a blog space.

Youtube Song of the Day – 3/10/09

As much as I love Wolf Parade’s studio recordings, I think the live stuff I find on line is even better.  So much energy, so much fun.  “Fancy Claps” is an excellent example.

And, more poster fun.

Continuing with the poster art theme, I’ve been a big fan of the stuff Steve Walters/Screwball Press has done for a long time – if nothing else, you’ll recognize his wonderful Pavement poster (shown below) from John Cusack’s apartment in High Fidelity. Do yourself a favor and take some time to pore over the galleries on the SP website – such goooood stuff.

A swell poster to start your Tuesday.

I’ve always been a big fan of Thomas Scott’s stuff at Eye Noise, but had somehow managed never to see this particular poster and fell in love with it when I came across it last night. Check out all of his stuff at the Eye Noise website.  He’s got an excellent 3 posters for $25 deal going on through the rest of March, so definitely stock up.

The angular and awesome Love of Diagrams provides us with today’s video.  Such good stuff.

Running across something like this at 10:30 at night is never a good thing.

Chocolate Cola Cake with Coconut-Pecan Frosting

Seriously.  This has to be just wonderful.  I have a feeling that if I were to make it, the cake would not get frosted.  Chances are, I would end up in front of the TV with the bowl and a wooden spoon.

We will begin with the greatest music video of all time.

I’m sure there’s plenty of differing opinions, but I think Yo La Tengo’s “Sugarcube” is the best music video ever made.

Does creating a new blog mean I’ll keep up on it? I sure hope so.

Okay, so I decided that I needed to start a new blog just to post anything that I come across in my exploration of the internets that I think everyone else in the world needs to see.  This could include music videos, taco stand reviews, internet comix, pro rasslin clips or anything else under the sun.  If you see something that you particularly enjoy, leave a comment so I know someone’s looking.  If you have something that you want to share, email me the link at

I do intend to keep this up-to-date – I’m going to try to do at least one found music video/concert video each day and at least one found recipe each day, along with whatever other awesomeness I find.
