The Listener

Nope, this isn't my road trip post. I haven't felt inspired to write that one yet. Actually, I'm just building up the anticipation. What's that one showbiz motto? "Always leave them wanting something else." That sounds about right.

In the meantime, if you enjoy the Raps Music and the Hip-Hops, check out some tracks by The Listener, his new album Ozark Empire got a lot of airtime on my road trip. You can listen to some tracks here. In particular I enjoy "When No One Else Will Be Your Friend I Will Do the Job."

My favorite song title on the album is "I've Been Waiting For This Moment For All My Life, Hold On" and I've been trying to drop that sentence into everyday conversation as much as possible. That's gotta be the first time a rapper has referenced Phil Collins.

I'll be posting a short synopsis of my recent trip to Chicago and Ohio in the next day or two.

In the meantime, I wanted to point out that the boondogs are streaming their new album. There's also a free EP for download on the music page.

Fun Facts About Letseatpaste

I sleep on the floor without a mattress. On purpose. The one bed in my house is in the guest room.

When I was 5 years old, we took a trip to Florida and Marlin Perkins was on the plane. He was the host of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.

When I was 2 years old, I jumped out of a shopping cart and landed on my head, fracturing my skull. I'm probably why they put seatbelts on those now.

When I was in high school I spent all my spare time riding a BMX bike, and being rad in general.

I used to play with Legos, a lot.

Once, in high school, I was walking under a stairwell/balcony thing and someone dumped out a bottle of cologne on me.

I once got two strikes in a row bowling backwards.

In 7th grade music class, the teacher challenged us to guess what song she was playing on the piano. She just kept playing one note over and over in a steady beat, and I guessed it correctly. The song was Eye of the Tiger. I knew it because I was playing that for piano lessons.

I once threw an aerobie (kind of like a frisbee, but it's a ring) about 200-250 feet and it landed ringing around an antenna of an RV out in the middle of a field, not on purpose.

Hackey sack is my favorite sport. I still have a hackey sack that was given to me for my birthday when I was in the sixth grade.

I can do the Pillsbury Doughboy laugh pretty well.

I never saw any Star Wars movie until long after they were popular. I probably didn't see the first one till after Return of the Jedi was out.

I own two accordions. It's always a good idea to have a spare.

When I was in the very dorkiest stage of my teenage years, with bad acne, bad thick glasses, bad hair and bad braces in full effect... On a family vacation, we stopped at a very busy Dairy Queen and I ordered a Blizzard with Nerds candy mixed into it. When it was ready, the DQ girl yelled "Nerd!", and I walked up to get it and everyone was laughing. My family was laughing the hardest.

When I was 3 years old, I tossed my favorite toy motorcycle into the alligator display pond at the zoo. My dad fished it out through the fence with a stick.

A couple years ago, I wrote a "fan letter" to Fabio telling him I thought he did a great job in the "I Can't Believe It's Butter" commercials. It was returned unopened and I sent it to my friend Jim who has long hair.

The minivan I own now is the second one I've owned in my life. I'm single, with no kids. And super cool.
