Merry Christmas (2 days later)

i hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, i know i did. it was nice just to spend time with the fam, catch up, eat WAY too much food and watch my packers break my heart yet again. i hope santa brought you everything you wanted (for me my new black video iPod) and most importantly: i hope you were able to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday and how much God sending his son to this earth really means. blessings to you all

New Look

well, three days into this blogging thing and i already decided that i wanted a new look. so here it is, enjoy. it's a little less "WOW" on your eyes, i think.

Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve

yeah, it is four days before Christmas! i hope you all have wonderful plans with family and loved ones.. the wife, Erica, and i will be celebrating with her family tomorrow and then on to KC to hang with the Choj's this weekend.

i'm sure a lot of you (assuming any one is reading this) are saying to yourselves: "Hey Dave, you're such a music freak, why haven't you talked about music yet? All i see is a picture of the Packers and a guy getting attacked by a sheep!" well that guy is Buster Bluth from Arrested Development, and i'm getting to the music thing now:

Currently listening to:

29 - Ryan Adams

This is his 3rd album of the year! and as far as i'm concerned, he saved the best for last. "Night Birds" is hauntingly brilliant, "Strawberry Wine" is classic Ryan Adams, and "The Sadness" is clever and bit of a musical stretch for him. Don't let the fact that there are only 9 tracks on the disc discourage you; six of them clock in at well over 5 minutes, so he's not shorting you any music.

stay tuned next week when i'll post my top-however-many-albums of the year.

(sneak peak: Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand, Without Gravity, and Mr. Ryan Adams will all make and apperance)

The Big Yellow Joint...


my favorite moment from last nights Arrested Development?
"Bob Loblaw's Law Blog"

you're right Tobias; that is a mouthful!

Another Heartbreaker

hey everyone!
so this is my first blog post ever....i felt like it was my time to jump into the blog scene, although bloggin will soon be SOOOOO 2005!
anyways....my Packers are breaking my heart for the 11th time this season. Losing 41-3 to the Ravens at the moment. Although they did just bring in "the kid" Aaron Rogers to take over for Favre. Heck, he just converted a 4th and 4 down to the 6 yardline. not bad...oops, just threw his first interception... in two weeks hope will spring eternal again as i look towards next season!
i close with a picture i took of Brett Favre a few weeks ago in Green Bay:
Here's to one more season, what'd ya say Brett?!?!!?
