061: ECHOES 073113

If you’re not caught up on Breaking Bad don’t watch this. Otherwise: hilarious.

  • I’m from the Gunshine State (Florida) home of the weird and land of the 365 BBQ, but this man takes the cake.
  • And if you’re going to be doing some extreme grilling, why not put a personal touch on it with a customizable brand?
  • Finally, if you’re going to all that trouble you might as well invite a few friends over. Make sure you do it right.
  • Tired of BBQ talk? Need something more serious for your world weary head? Check out this (kinda) longread from Gear Patrol about the 10,000 Year Clock.

 

040: Friday Jams | T-Pain – Take Your Shirt Off

In honor of the fact that I’m going to a very fancy party for work tomorrow night, I thought I’d share one of my favorite party songs. Also, this is for all my Tallahassee people. And my Korea people.

036: Frightened Rabbits – Pedestrian Verse

 

This is a guest post from the inimitably impassionate Meghan. She’ll be bring us regular updates on the music-world with a Left Coast take from her current home in Portland. To get your fill of music nonsense and passionate rants about New Girl, follow her on Twitter.

I thought it only appropriate to write my first HowManyBeards music blurb about a band that I have been friend-losing-ly obsessed with for the past three months. And this is no exaggeration. One of my friends actually installed an app on Google Chrome that automatically blocks any of my posts with the words “Frightened Rabbit,” “Frightened Rabbits,” “Frabbit,” or “Frabbits” from his news feed, and replaces them with photos of cats.

033: Friday Jam | The Cranberries – Zombie

Just as good as always. Hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

028: Tuesday Breakdown For 01.22.13

Sorry for the delay, I was too busy gorging on 4 Rivers BBQ. Mmmmmm. Be jealous.

1. Wedgie? I Hardly Know Ye.

In another case of startling misuse of law enforcement a man from Bradenton, FL was arrested for battery after he was accused of, you guessed it, giving another man a wedgie. Now, you might feel bad for this young man until you realize he is not but a wastrel as he was actually filming his wedgie escapades so he could profit from them by posting the film to Youtube. All good things to those who wait.

2. Nosewalker

Do you like to longboard? Are you sure? Have no idea what longboarding is? Either way, watch the first 3:40 of this video and you’ll walk away hating it.

3. The 20th Anniversary of 1993.

Who knew that 1993 was one of, if not the most important year in Rap music. NPR started off a long series of in depth looks at the music made that year and the culture that created it and was created from it. You can find the first episode “The Chronic” 20 Years Later: An Audio Document of The L.A. Riots online for free.

4. The Power Of T.

The Art Of Manliness has long been a source of knowledge and inspiration for me, but this week has featured some of the most truly informative pieces they’ve ever published. All week the site’s author Brett McKay has been running a series about testosterone and men based on his own insight and experiences. I cannot recommend these pieces enough, especially for young men but also for all men as well as significant others and spouses. Start with the first piece on The Declining Virility Of Men and The Importance of T¬†and then work your way through the others Benefits of Optimal T, How Testosterone Is Made, and How To Increase Testosterone Naturally.

021: Merry Christmas

I want to wish a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.

And if for some reason you’re still not in the Spirit, let me recommend allowing Big Boi read you How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

010: Required Listening For A Happy Birthday – Titus Andronicus

In honor of my birthday, listen to these two songs in order, and a slam a couple beers while you’re doing it.

008: Friday Jam – Natural Anthem

Sometimes I get a little sad when I think about the fact that there will never be another Postal Service Album. Other times I realize that after this album being wrapped in a decade of nostalgia nothing could ever come close to it.

Have a great weekend, kids.
