Kickstart Julia Massey!

I heart Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount. Their previous album was my Album of the Month last April. I’ve seen them perform live in the last year more than any other music act except for maybe Three Ninjas. Their bass player was the best man at my wedding (this was pre-FFD days).

Well, they’re making a new album NOW: “Is There Room 4 Me?”

"Is There Room 4 Me?" by Julia Massey & The Five Finger Discount

It’s almost done, but they need a li’l help. They’ve started a Kickstarter page where you can go to help them out, and in return you can get some awexome JM+FFD swag! As of this posting they need LESS THAN $100 to reach their goal!

You know you love their music. You know you wanna hear their new album. You know you wanna help out. You know you want some cool swag. THERE AIN’T NO EXCUSE! Do it.

I’m not the only person who thinks you should!

EDIT 7/23: Update: They made it! Now they’re in “extra innings” where they can earn money to help promote the album. So don’t stop contributing now!

Peanut Tweeter

We all know that Twitter is kind of a place where you can blow off steam. You can say stuff you normally (probably) wouldn’t say in polite company. It tends to get a bit inappropriate and/or profane.

So what happens when you take some really funny tweets, then find some appropriate panels from old Peanuts comic strips, and then replace the dialogue in the panels with the funny tweets?

Also, one of my new favorite websites, Peanutweeter!

Warning, much of it (like much of Twitter) is NSFW.

My Drunk Kitchen

I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard. Of course, I’d had quite a bit of wine myself when I watched it:
