At the risk of going another week-plus without blogging (a past habit of mine that at one point spiraled out of control… like a crack addiction!), I thought I’d pop in and share a few of my favorite random things from the past several days.
Rachel posted these photos from a few weeks ago. Yes, they’re of me, and no, she didn’t post any of the TWO of us. But I thought these were pretty neat looking:
I came across pet photographer Seth Casteel’s site featuring incredible shots of dogs underwater. His book, appropriately titled Underwater Dogs, doesn’t come out until October, but there’s this lovely little thing called pre-order, and I’m seriously considering it. How amazing are they?
And speaking of dogs, I read the novel The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein last week, and I highly recommend it. It’s told from the perspective of a dog named Enzo, who is funny AND smart. That premise alone should be reason enough for you to check it out for yourself. I don’t know how you couldn’t be a dog person. I just don’t.
Finally, John’s band had a show downtown Friday night, and it was a hell of a set. A singer recently joined the line-up, and she makes a pretty kick-ass addition to the band. The cluster of dudes lined up in front of the stage seemed to agree. Check out John Mancini Band‘s cover of Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ “Paris (Ooh La La)” recorded by yours truly:
Hopefully there will be lengthier posts in the near future. And there will definitely be a Karaoke Blog Ring of Death post this week. (Excitement.) Stay tuned!
