It’s the quick snap shot of me…Born in Atlanta, Ga. I’ve lived in Athens and Augusta, GA, Lexington KY, Hilton Head SC and now Murrells Inlet. My first car was a 1987 white camero dubbed “The Great White Hype” because it looked and sounded fast, but the speedometer only went to 85mph. I own several guitars but I only know how to play chords(no delusions of solos here). I used to collect comic books, so I have a huge knowledge base of things that didn’t help me have sex. I’ve been married since 2000 and have 2 kids. I LOVE cars…I’d put classics before new. I take karate, kick boxing and jiu jitsu…but I’m still not a ninja….one day….one day. It goes without saying that I love music. Sorry USC and Clemson fans, I’m a die hard UGA fan, but I do root for the SEC...best conference in football.
Movies I could watch over and over again: Avengers…really anything with a superhero. Black Dynamite, The Goods, Ted, Top Secret, I’m Gonna Get You Sucka, Roadhouse, anything on Syfy and tons of other flicks.
TV Shows I DVR: The Walking Dead, Key and Peele, The Mentalist, Justified, Tosh.0, Family Guy, White Collar, SNL, Castle, Supernatural…wow that’s 9 hours of my life each week and those are the ones that just came to mind.
Bands I like: There’s a ton, but here are a few that I really like…The Beatles(they should be the first on any list, R.E.M., Mumford and Sons, Ray LaMontagne, Muse, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Stevie Ray Vaughan(really), Black Keys, Mutemath, Jack White, Thrice…and more!
We finally got a look at Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For. It looks like they didn't change the formula from the first one and I'm okay with that.
It comes out August 22nd.
The official trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction just came out. The only thing we've seen up to this point was a fast paced Super Bowl spot that didn't show too much. Now we get an idea of what's going on. This Transformers movie, led by Mark Wahlberg comes out June 27th.
I'm a big fan of the Jimmy Kimmel after the Oscars special. As always, it was super star studded. After my first watch, I'm not as impressed as I've been in previous years. Jimmy took several viral videos from the internet and made trailers for them as if they were made into hollywood movies. Watch them and see what you think. My favorite was the David After the Dentist video....Sam Jackson is in it and sings the Eels.
Last night, 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture. It had a pretty great night at the awards. I'm not sure if I will ever see it. It doesn't have aliens, dragons or robots in it, but I'm not ruling it out. Saturday Night Live had a great sketch about casting this movie.
Beck made his return to SNL this past weekend. Both performances were pretty laid back, but the second one was REALLY laid back. I liked them both. Check them out below.
YTG was on Letterman last night doing their lovely song you've been hearing on KZQ, "It's About Time".
