Sweet Mandolin Music

It's been almost a year since I've mentioned this, but in honor of my uncle Terry's new blog I thought I'd give you a taste of what he is working on for his third album (soon to be released). If you follow the link on his blog to his soundclick site you can hear clips, including a couple in the works.

I also found a couple of links to websites that are promoting his music as well. If I haven't said it yet, you must buy his CDs. Do it. Now. You won't be sorry.

Wandering the High Wires - 2005 release Wandering the High Wires.
Just Married - 2004 release From Melancholy.

As you can see from the picture on his soundclick site, we are indeed related.

Sacramento Kings in the Playoffs?

Say it ain't so!

I know most people could care less, and honestly, I don't really care all that much. The funny thing is this all came to pass after the Ron Artest deal and the Kings are now half a game over the Lakers. In fact, the Lakers now have a chance of being pushed out of the playoffs (though not likely). Back to March Madness or whatever you were doing before.

Live Action Simpsons Intro

Simpsons fans enjoy the live action version of The Simpsons intro. You'll notice that "Marge's" car is backwards. That's because this was done by a British company (with aid from the producers of The Simpsons).

Quote For The Day

To add to my last post and to the awesome conversation happening, I found this great quote from the famed philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

"This, then, is held to be the duty of the man of wealth: To set an example of modest, unostentatious living, shunning display or extravagance; to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of those dependent upon him; and, after doing so, to consider all surplus revenues which come to him simply as trust funds, which he is called upon to administer...to produce the most beneficial results for the community." ~ Andrew Carnegie from The Gospel of Wealth, 1889
I'm not sure why I call it "Quote For The Day". I don't do them every day.
