Friday Fives

1.  What are you listening too that is new, fresh and simple?

Flight of the Conchords.  It is a comedy/music/show thing that could only be compared to Tenacious D.  However, it’s smarter, and they are from New Zealand (that’s Australian for talented people).  At the end of their first season, they released all the shows on DVD, and a music CD.   That is what I am listening to.

2.  What would you do for fun if you had to give up tv, movies, electronic games and the internet?

if I had to?  I would read and play guitar.  My college degree was lit, so I love books and have a great collection (see the ‘what I’m reading‘ tab for updates).  I also really love guitars.   As long as there is the mountains, my acoustic, and lots of beer… all will be well.   I will breathe for the both of us.

3.  _____; are you kidding me???

Obama was up at 7 am his first day as POTUS and having meetings and briefings and signing legislature? Are you kidding me?  If I had that job, I would spend the first week at Camp David getting drunk and sleeping a LOT.

4. What is a quick, easy, fun meal to make to handle my sudden comfort food needs.

Man, I love to cook.  So, good question.  I guess the easiest and most impressive would be to knock out a shrimp scampi in a garlic butter cream reduction (that’s obnoxious speak for ‘sauce’)  over angel hair pasta.   That is a dish I could literally do in my sleep that would make you make out with me.  I could do it in ten minutes for under $10.

5.   Roy says that Brendan O’Brien ruined the new Springsteen album, and he should be beaten.  What say you?

Roy could not be more wrong.  O’Brien is a GENIUS and my absolute favorite producer.  He gave us Pearl Jam’s masterpiece ‘Yield’, along with the amazing Stone Temple Pilot’s disc ‘Purple’.

Oh, and Roy forgets that O’Brien produced Springsteen’s ‘The Rising’.  It’s more than a great album.  If it weren’t for that album (and O’Brien), your little buddy Springsteen would be washing cars and cashing unemployment checks from Columbia right now.

6.    What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever made with bread?

Jesus, what kind of question is that?  Listen buddy, I am married.   What I do with bread is my own business.  Oh, and there is this little gem.   I am on another goddamn diet, so I don’t enjoy bread anymore.  Nope.  Stupid carbs.  I get to eat bread that looks and tastes like bird food and cardboard.    I better lose weight, or I am taking it out on all y’all!
