I will go listen to new CWK albums. I meant to add one more DM thing. I like Playing The Angel a lot, as well. Was that the year Dave2 came to Chicago to see the concert with you?

Let's start with Linkin Park. I've tried to like the new song, but it's not catching on here. I find myself going back to "Burn It Down" which I really like. I've only heard the new Cold War Kids songs that SiriusXM plays on Alt Nation. It's good. New Depeche Mode. I'm really curious how you will like the rest of the album once you track more of it. Since yesterday's review I posted, it's grown on me even more. I'm also curious how Dave2 and KevinAZ like it.

Awesome find. I still have mine. Maybe I need to give it a TBT treatment as I've not done a Throwback Thursday post this year yet.

While I missed out putting "Steamed" in my answer, I'm stoked I got it right. As for this week, it's beer. Specifically a Guinness like beer and that's the pic of the foam.

Just about every thing you said here matched what I've been saying for months now. Bravo for posting this.

That's very annoying to have them repeat the confirmation. Right up there with trying to get tech vendors to respect your unsubscribe from 3 emails a day.

Awesome on him liking his first taste of Star Wars. Those are sweet lithographs.

Missed the pancake... hindsight on that one. This week is broccoli.

We've talked about me coming to Pitchfork for several years now. And I really did want to come this year, but for some reason, my wife wants to go on a Viking River Cruise to celebrate her 55th birthday (which actually doesn't happen until after we get back). And this is during the time we will be there. Given that, I would love to see LCD Soundsystem, although $75 just to see them is a bit much. But given they've not been to Utah since 2007, it's obvious I will have to travel to see them. Sat sounds like a great line up. I just saw George Clinton at the end of December here and he and his band put on a great show. As for the rest of the bands on Sat, I see some familiar names, but can't place the music or their sound. I look forward to reading a review of the bands you see this year.

Coupons galore. Disney knows how to keep the business for future movies. I'm going to get Moana on Blu-ray here soon. Loved the movie. And I always buy Disney movies on Blu-ray (plus you get digital iTunes copy). Until I read your post, I had no idea when Rogue One was coming out on Blu-ray. April 4th. WooHoo!

As I mentioned over on your IG account, this rocks. Pretty awesome, if you ask me.

My lock screen shows a picture of the arch in Cabo San Lucas, which was taken the last time I was there (April 2015). I don't think I blogged about that trip yet (I've only blogged the first time I was there in 2013)

Smell like a G-string. Going back a good 17 years, I would have looked at that stack of $1's and anticipated my next strip club visit.

Nice throwback photo. I've never heard of Kenpo before this post.

I'm a morning person and have been for years. Sometimes the productive state needs a bit of a break, or so I like to think that's how it works to make me feel better about the lull days.

Awesome job on this. And way to channel my delayed LEGO set building for a couple of years.... LOL (I have several sets that I've not built yet that remain in their box). I like this deadline video a lot. Did Nathan watch you or help with this?

At least my guess for last week's was food. This week, this looks like a soccer knee pad.

I was shocked to hear of his death yesterday (from complications of surgery the day before). Such a talent. I can't pick a favorite role. Way too many.

If I remember seeing your IG account, it looks like Katie's account got fixed. Flickr for me is the same. I have all of these photo services and places to put them - iCloud, Google, Flickr, IG... For the most part, I use Photos on my iDevices, but go over to Flickr when I see KevinAZ or Vahid post something over there. I like the immense amount of storage you get on Flickr, but I also get your points with the Yahoo pending sale and their overall mismanagement of their company.

Oh it's pretty bizarre. Those filers are insane. But I like your first few snaps so far. Nathan as a puppy is pretty adorable. I've been on it for a while, but I take breaks from it every so often just cause I forget it's there most of the time.

The last couple of years, it's been injury (plantar fasciitis on my left heel). But before that, it was just how I walked over the years.
