Incubus - Are You In?

Are you in?

Great mashed potatos

Hey everyone!

The storms have came and went, at least the April round.

Tonight I want to get into a cooking mode.  I love mashed potatoes and have always used russet.  Here is a great recipe from Tyler Florence that I have been using for the last month or so.  They definitely deliver, let me know how they come out for you guys.

What an active April is has been for tornado activity.  For whatever reason my little niche here in the Chicago area seems to miss all of the action.  This is a good thing many would say, however I've really wanted to catch some good video.

Here is a clip from the latest round of storms.

Back from my Holiday vacation!

I had Friday through Monday off this extended weekend.

Saturday night the cops found some kid getting high in my backyard and woke me up to ask me if I knew him.  No guys I don't, why would I? He was crushing up some orange pill.  I found that out as they didn't really investigate why he was in my backyard.  OK, weird shit is weird.

Easter Sunday I make a great turkey, mashed potato, stuffing, corn, homemade gravy and have a great day with friends and family.

Monday is cool, one more day to relax and enjoy the end of my extended weekend.

Tuesday the garbage man hit's an electric line that was dropped down from all the rain we have been having in the Chicago area and I loose power at the house.  Well, what are you going to do? I'll go to work and it will be on by the time I get home.  Boom!  Lightening strikes my job and takes out the security system, so I have to get that fixed.  It all worked out and I have to say I haven't been bored.

Let me know if any of you in the midwest have any cool storm stories.  Check out the cool lightening video as well.

I'm back in action guys, just had to do the holiday break and I will be checking out all of my friends blogs.  I can't wait.

Good Neighbor!

YouTube has created so many of it's own "celebrities" and I generally don't understand why.  Those on the top of the subscriber list leave me scratching my heads.

Over the next week I'm going to highlight some of the members who I think are overlooked...

This is Good Neighbor, they are a comedy trio out of  L.A.  Let me know what you think.  Kyle is my favorite, who's yours?

How high can you get?

Tom Morello with Cypress Hill.

This is a great Friday night song after a few cocktails or a few whatever you like.  I hope this lights up a party somewhere.  I know it has here.

Singed Against Skill Shots Part 3

I know I have been on an Incubus kick. So I'll change it up a bit.

Here is the final League of Legends video.  These are from my friend Xenototh.  He is really good and fun to listen to, especially when he goes into rage mode.  Let me know if you find these entertaining and I'll have him put together some new video.

Ben Kenny

Let's talk about Ben Kenny...  As you know I'm a huge Incubus fan.  I've been in a few garage bands and have always been influenced by Dirk Lance.  I had a chance to meet him in Chicago in the late 90's and he was really cool. So when Incubus said they were replacing him with Ben I didn't know how to react. After seeing him so many times live and getting to know how he did every song I found myself critiquing the way Ben did them, especially the Science stuff.  I grew to love his style, as different as it is from Dirks.  The Chicago show at Northerly Island, one of many I would see there, confirmed this.

This isn't live footage, but it shows Ben doing one of his songs from his solo album Brady Bunch style.  He plays all the parts.  Check it out and tell me what you think.

Incubus and The Police together live.

My old garage band really loved to play Police covers and Incubus covers.  So when I saw this video I thought it might be a dream.  Nope, it's real check this out!  I know there is no Sting, I'm fine with that.  Brandon does a great job.

Family Guy Street Fighter scene.

Guys, Saw this tonight and laughed my ass off.  I used to play this game constantly.  Enjoy.

Incubus is one of my favorite bands.  It's funny because I first saw them by accident in 97.  I was driving to Iowa to see 311 and the opening acts were Incubus and Sugar Ray (I just want to fly time).  Brandon Still had dreads and I didn't know who they were at the time.  I remember asking my best friend who was with me for the journey.. "who the fuck is Incubus?"  In retrospect I'm really pissed I didn't pay more attention.  Since then I have seen them many times.  Here is something new from them!  There is no video yet, just click the link above for new Incubus.  I would love to hear any concert experiences you guys might have to share.

This some serious gourmet shit!

Today we have some serious gourmet shit, please enjoy!

Is Charlie Sheen winning?

Charlie Sheen.  It's its own sentence.  Funny, yet somehow true.  After reading the Detroit reviews of his show I thought he was done.  He seems to have found a reprieve at the Chicago Theater.  As a Chicago guy I have to say there is a big difference between a Chicago crowd and a Michigan one, let alone Detroit.  So when I heard things didn't go so well for the tour on opening night I wasn't even mad.  My question to my followers...   Will he complete the tour and win?

These are delicious!

I've been on this Mexican kick, yet I've wanted to ad my own angle.

So here is what I did...

  1. I just did a simple box of Zatarain's yellow rice mix
  2. Medium heat on some boneless skinless chicken breast (about a pound and half)
  3. chicken is cooked
  4. cut up the the chicken (whatever cut you like)
  5. skillet it up with cumin, garlic, black crushed, salt of your choice, dill?  I would 
  6. the point here is to taste often until you have the chicken flavor of your choice
  7. you will know, time to serve, Corn for me, cut some avacodo, plate... you got it
  8. cook with love!

Pink Floyd!

Ok, So Jim's World of Music blog is awesome.  I just have to respond with the last time they were together...

Great Saturday night tune!

Yeah so this a great Saturday night song.  I'm just chilling out listening to some good tunes with some good friends.  We are making epic style chicken tacos, with homemade guacomole, with Spanish rice.  Guys on that note I am going to be posting some of my dinner recipes with how to pictures.  Does this sound like something everyone would be interested in?
