Who Knew?

I was pleasantly surprised to see Miss America 2010 was from Virginia, and also from Fredericksburg. It spurred some digging. For years I have known of famous Fredericksburg-ians Al Bumbry, Mark Lenzi, Greg Rouse, and Judge Reinhold, but was surprised to learn Danny McBride was raised in Fredericksburg. Impressively D McB still keeps a place in Fredericksburg.

2010 Abu Dhabi

The Euro Tour event is shaping up for a good final round. Kaymer leads, with Poulter & McIlroy one stroke behind. Chris Wood is also in the hunt. Great watching for Sunday morning. McIlroy is the truth, his swing is a work of art, and approaching the fluidity of Ernie Els. It makes the swing of Poulter appear as if he is trying to suffocate his swing with a pillow.

Ears and Eyes

Recently, my musical tendencies have been geared towards more upbeat artists. The latest mix from DJ KnewJack, Cloak and Dagger, is ridiculous. I've been juggling C&D with Girl talk (both NIght Ripper and Feed the Animals), The Blueprint 3, and both Wolfmother albums.

When flipping pages, I'm entranced by Charcuterie, enjoy Drive (although not to the extent I enjoyed AWNM and Johnny Bunko), and am catching up on Chuck Klosterman (IV, although reading in reverse-chronological order dissolves his tightly-wound mind shots into frayed, albeit poignant, rants).
