Saturday Morning Shinedown



This is such a flippin' powerful song, thought you might dig it, too. I was gonna' let you eyeball my other fave song right now, Framing Hanley's ridiculously fine cover of Lil Wayne's "Like a Lollipop." But after I watched the vid, I felt dirty. And not in the way I like, but in more of a, "My god, those boys don't even have chest hair, and it has nothing to do with strategic manscaping" sort of way. Please bear w/the trailer that might play, 'k?

WOW! Not much more needs to be said. Thanks, Michelle!

My pleasure, peej. :)

Buongiorno, Bellas! So easy, this blogger thing! It's so totally freeing.

Know what I'm reading right now? Couldn't help myself, but I picked up the third book in Mary Balogh's new Huxtable family trilogy, "At Last Comes Love." I'm in heaven.

"First Comes Marriage" is out now, the next installment, "Then comes Seduction" is March, "ALCL" is April. Then, you'll be DYING for this one, the Huxtable brother and peer apparent, Stephen, gets his story June in "Seducing an Angel."

It took, like, 100 pages into the book before there even was a kiss, and I didn't even mind! I'll write more soon...

I adore Shinedown. They are one of the new groups that I actually listen to and are on my ipod. I have to make sure i update that before I head out on my road trip.

Shinedown will be here March 6th and I plan on going. Then they are supposed to be nearby while Heather is home and i think I will end up going again. LOL

I hadn't seen the video before, so thank you. You can keep Lil Wayne.

ev, if I were your daughter's age, I wish you were my mom. You know what I'm sayin, right?

I saw lil wayne interviewd the other night, and i think he's pretty brilliant. but the cover by framing hanley so rocks; the kids are really talented. I think dave is really worried that i'm so obsessed with hard rock and metal right now. it could be that he just doesn't want me to embarrass myself...

Sorry it posted twice but it didn't tell me it had saved the first time. Now I've posted three times. LOL

Thanks Michelle- I have been dragging that kid to concerts since I was pregnant with her and then as a baby and onward. She's the one who got me into Shinedown.

Heather was going to try and fly home for the concert the one weekend here in March, but I talked her out of that stupidity. I did buy us tickets for the other show here when she is home for her birthday.

And don't tell her I bought myself one for the local show. I will probably be the oldest person there who isn't working! LOL But I don't care, I really do enjoy them.

I have never been able to get into the rap and hiphop type stuff. I am definately a rocker/country girl.

Hi everyone! I just got back from seeing "He's Just Not That Into You." I thought it was deeply cute, and painful to watch, like a trainwreck. But man, the Justin Long character in it, he just drives this point home: If a man *wants* to be with you, he'll find a way. If he doesn't call, doesn't talk to you, blows you off. HE'S NOT INTERESTED. And all those stories your girlfriends tell you to make you feel better (you know, about her sister's best friend's sister who dated a guy for nine years before he proposed), are the EXCEPTION not the rule.

As a single girl who has been dating for like 20 years, it was painful to watch, and So. Freaking. True.

Anyway, I thought it was deeply cute and a blast to watch. It got less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I thought it was really fun. It might help that I paid early matinee prices ($6 instead of $11) but I thought it was totally worth the money.

Hence the reason I have told my husband he WILL take care of himself, he will NOT die on me and I WILL keep him healthy if I have to die trying.

I have no desire to go back into dating hell.

Michelle--I had never heard SHinedown before, I always think I'm so hip and with-it, but since my older kids are not around so much...I'm not so with-it.

Thanks, I loved it.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Man, Kati, I always got the 'he's not into" me point right away, I just slipped into varying states of denial. I think it helps if a girl starts out with really low self esteem. 'least that's my dating advice.

Ames, you're in trouble if you're gonna be relying on me for hipness alerts.

Kati said...

Michelle - I always end up subscribing to the "maybe he was in a car accident, something heavy fell on him, his mother's sick" or some other variation as to why he might not have called.

Thankfully, I have Scott there to talk me off the ledge and tell me what boys are thinking. And, well, usually he ends up reminding me that if the guy doesn't call, he's not into me. Painful as it is to hear, it's good to have someone there to tell me. Of course, when I dated the intelli-geek who wouldn't made a move, Scott was stymied. LOL! Scott ended up being pretty sure that guy had never, you know, made a move. IN his life.

SIGH. It never ends.
