Sometimes, people ask me to make a mix for them. Reblog this and tell me what you’re looking for, and I’ll make you one. I have the others up on 8tracks.
Kind of a limited time offer because I’m going to be deleting my tumblr soon. I (and GET BENT too) will be making the move to wordpress. I’ve been on here awhile (back when they had tumblarity) and I love what tumblr offers in terms of connecting with cool people like yourselves (hell, GET BENT wouldn’t exist if it hadn’t been for tumblr), but it’s time. You can follow me on pinterest (where I’ll post all the random shit I would reblog here) and instagram (which will become more active once I get my phone turned back on), or even friend me on facebook.
It’s been a great year of music, but some records stood out more than most, so the staff came together again to vote for our favorite long players of 2012. So for anyone who says that rock n roll is dead, here’s 25 solid albums to hit them over the head with. Share your lists in the comments, and read more of the Best of 2012.
Working on a Christmas party menu… I made a pinterest so I could collect ideas, but I want to narrow them down now into what I’m actually gonna make. Pictures to follow, @seungalong on instagram.
Creamy white bean dip
Spinach pinwheels with artichoke filling
Baked brie with dried fruit compote
Sausage cheddar balls
Rum cake with egg nog glaze
And then my boyfriend’s birthday is the next day, and he asked for some kind of lasagna, so I want to try to create a shrimp and grits lasagna. It’d be layers of pasta, grits mixed with ricotta cheese, shrimp and sausage and all that jazz, and a light tomato sauce probably with some sliced mozzarella on top. And a dark chocolate coconut Guinness cake.
In other news, I have a horrible job at a corporate chain restaurant that I signed I wouldn’t say anything defamatory about it on my social networks (seriously), so I won’t tell you which one. And I’m struggling to find a venue in Montgomery (Old Cloverdale specifically) that will let me do occasional shows, but I’m also slowly working on putting together a non-profit to support local music in Alabama so maybe that will become easier if I’m still around (which I’m not planning on being). In addition to some new developments for Get Bent, and getting dicked around on venues for SXSW. My life is weird right now.
