I feel like I haven't seen you all in a while...

And I feel like a little kid with a bunch of new toys and I want to show you everything! Including this video I made from our trip in 2009...

Incidentally, I noticed that at the beginning of 2010, I said it was the year it would all happen... I don't think it did. Maybe 2011...

Rock and Roll Spring Break

So, looking back at my New Year's Resolutions, I'm not doing a very good job with them. I mean I'm accomplishing some of them, but 1 and 4 are lacking right now.

I did get into purging lately, though. Not the awesome kind that involves puking all over the place, though. I'm talking about the slightly less awesome kind that involves taking tons of things that I don't want, need or care about and sending them to the trash/recycle bin/Salvation Army. When you have less, you care about what you have more, and when you have too much, it's hard to care about any of it, even the importance stuff.

In just a few days, we'll be headed to Austin for rock and roll spring break SXSW. As always, I am very excited! Among the many we'll be seeing will bo one of our favories and a dear friend from Dublin, The Mighty Stef.

Stef passed through Detroit on Monday, and we got him a show at the Lager House and put the band up at our house. It was great to see them play, and even more fun to hang out until 3 in the morning talking. He's on tour now, making his way to Austin, where we'll see him again next week.

Here's one of Stef's songs (one of my favorites)...

Honestly, I had no idea that my comment moderation had been flipped on, so I assumed nobody care about the political plights of Kit Burns... but the truth is, like 5 of you do! So, thanks for caring.

And I assumed nobody read this thing anymore...

HA! I just realized that the site has been holding comments for moderation for months without telling me!

Sorry folks, let's get back to blogging, shall we?

New Year's Resolutions

A few minutes ago, I noticed an FB post from Ange, that she was blogging again, and it made me realize that I too have a blog. A personal blog that is, I also have the music/work thing, which I post on almost daily, but I have been neglecting this one for something like 8 months now, relying on the FB to find out what my friends are up to, as well as to find out what the children of people I went to high school with are up to, which is ridiculous because I didn't like most of those people when I was in high school in the first place.

It's probably about time to "Stalin" my FB friend list again, as one of the people I actually care about refers to it as. I mean, if I wasn't friends with you at one time, and you're not interesting now, why do I care? Answer? I don't. I just clicked "Accept," because it was easy.

Anyway, Ange had pointed out that she was back, and I thought I was missing this thing a bit, too, so let's bring it all back, yes?

Let's start with New Year's Resolutions. A couple anyway. Some are for me to know and for you to mind your own business.

1. Post here more, but not to apologize for not posting. Too many posts here and everywhere seem to start out with an apology for taking time off. It's my time to take where I want, and it's too short to waste on apologizing for things I'm not genuinely sorry about.

2. Put yet more time and effort into my physical well-being. In addition to the ever present biking involved in my life, I've added running and weights into the mix, and added a few goals. We'll be at the Corktown 5K this year, and have signed up for the Warrior Dash as well. Ange is also in, and this is going to be a party of moderately epic proportions along with an asskick of a race.

3. Devote more time to mastering the Hipstamatic. I love this thing.

4. Devote time to one project for me each month. More on that soon, once I wrap my head around the full ramifications of it...

5. Become yet more and more awesome. That one's self-explanatory.

That is all for now. Odds on, I'm going to post prolifically for weeks now, before fading away right when the weather gets nice. It's what I do, and I won't apologize for it (see #1).
