How about my FIRST PLACE Reds?! Yes, I used a possessive pronoun there. I might share them with Luke, but not for long. Who would have thought that good pitching, solid defense, & timely hitting could make a good combination? Somebody should have told that to Reds teams of the past…oh 11 years or so.
The 9 worst beers in America. – I’ve had the first one, and boy is it gross. Think “liquid-compost-pile-combined-with-rotting-seafood-juice-under-95-degree-sun-with-95-percent-humidity-in-a-can”…A simple focus group could have solved the issue of Budweiser apparently not knowing it tasted like crap.
Steve D watching Pride & Prejudice? I never thought I’d see the day, but I guess anything’s possible when you make as horrible of a trade-off as Star Trek for it. I think everyone loses in that situation. “Beam me up, Scotty!” I would also like to point out that both Steve D & his wife vowed not to watch each other’s movie, and they both caved. Sure, maybe I deleted my account on Facebook & couldn’t decide which phone I wanted to use, but I never vowed not to use either of them…
Steve D is a hypocrite! “Hey bro, I think you’ve got a 2×4 sticking out of your eye…”
If you’re in Cincinnati on Friday night, come to the Southgate House. I hear there’s a sweet band playing there…Not only is there a show, they’re recording it – engineered by none other than our own DanB…He has a Twitter account too – follow him.
Back to the Reds – if you’re a baseball fan – specifically a Reds fan, I don’t understand how anyone wouldn’t be able to enjoy the past few weeks of baseball in Cincinnati. It’s the best the Reds have played for as long as I can remember, and it’s nice to be on the winning side of things for once. Sure, it may not last, but who cares? ENJOY WINNING! This isn’t New York or LA, we can’t pay for championships.
Since Luke shared some of his favorite music, I’ll share some of mine:
Butch Walker – I haven’t been to a show in over a year, so when Butch Walker came near Cincinnati, it was a perfect opportunity to go to a show…Except for the fact that nobody would go with me, so instead of going by myself (which I’m sure still would have been amazing), I ditched my already-purchased tickets & hung out with friends instead. I hope this regret doesn’t follow me the rest of my life.
Nickelback – This band is SWEET! I’ve never heard such originality come from Canada before.
Just kidding – SteveD is the one who really likes Nickelback. And Creed…I think he had a life-size poster of Scott Stapp in his room in high school…I’ll just leave you with that.
We’ve been so busy here at ACNS that we forgot our own birthday!
I first posted on April 28th, 2009, and here we are over a year later, still going strong. What started as a stupid hobby for me has become much more than that – a stupid hobby for a couple people. But seriously though, working on ACNS is one of my favorite things to do, and I truly appreciate the fact that people like SteveD & Lukecarey are willing to give up their own time and help me out quite a bit (h/t to DanB & BillE too!)
However, it’s the fact that all of you keep coming back to read what we have to say that keeps us going. Otherwise we would be sending our thoughts into internet-oblivion, where nobody cares. You readers give us a destination for our thoughts, and that’s pretty cool. I feel really sappy for having just said that. I’m crying tears of joy right now.
Anyway, thanks for reading. Happy Birthday to us.
