1. Ted Leo.
I want to feed you vegan cupcakes.
AU and I saw him and his Pharmacists at Great American Music Hall on Tuesday. It. Was. Awesome. Dude's almost 40 and is still rocking HARD. He is also vegan. <3
2. Chuck Taylors. My plaid ones are breaking down. I'm thinking purple or yellow.
3. Dexter. AU said we should watch it, and I consented. It's no secret that I love crime television -- Court TV, all incarnations of Law & Order and CSI, heck, even Cold Case -- but not because they're well-written or have great actors. Dexter, however, is the most clever crime show I've seen in some time. It's smart, well-written, and stars this hot hunk of man meat, Michael C. Hall:
I accept you for who you are, creep.
4. Billy the Kid. I went to trivia night at Blur on Wednesday, like I always do. One of the questions asked about Billy the Kid's real name (Henry McCarty, if you care). After we turned in our answers (we got that question wrong), I looked him up on my phone. Look at this guy!
Bad-ass? You bet.
A misunderstood ranch hand/outlaw, he died at just 21. Billy the Kid has an interesting story that sheds a lot of light on Old West dynamics. I kind of wish cowboys still existed; Western shootouts seem so much better than gang/police shootouts.
5. Finding out that you appear not to have changed since high school.
What are you appreciatin' on this week?
