Paste Magazine has the new Butch Walker album streaming! I had to do some ninja moves to get it to stream on my phone but I figured it out and now I've been listening all morning. I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Butch Walker and The Black Widows - The Spade

One week til it officially comes out! =)

Okay, new update. Earl ate something and drank a little water today, so my mom is going to see how things go for the next couple days. I don't know exactly how I feel about this, but he's not my dog so it's not my decision. He looked pretty bad when I stopped by the house today. =/ But I have to believe my mom knows what's best for him. So I guess we'll see how things go...

SO. Onto better things. Butch Walker is going to be playing with Taylor Swift on the Grammy Awards tonight. This makes me pretty damn happy! Even if I have to sit through a lot of crap to see him. Maybe she'll be on towards the beginning? (yeah, I know. prob not since she's prob going to win Record of the Year)

Day 07 → A photo that makes you happy

Hmmmm. I don't want to be completely predictable and post another Karl Urban photo. Although he does make me very happy. So let's go with this one instead. It's tiny, I know. But it's the best I can do here at work.

Let's go over all the things that I love about this photo:
1) jean shortalls with the straps hanging down
2) spandex capri pants
3) another pair of spandex capri pants, under jean shorts
4) leather jacket with no shirt
5) the fact that I vividly remember this photo hanging up in my bedroom

And that's all, right? Can't be anything else that's amusing about this. Oh wait...


Ha ha ha ha ha!! Poor Butch. I know he hates this stuff, but seriously. I still love Southgang. Kind of a lot. And I make no apologies for it.

OMG. The Carbon Leaf/Alternate Routes show was completely AMAZING last night! I'm not a huge CL fan or anything and they totally blew me away. They played non-stop (except for a small encore break) for well over 2 hours. Almost unheard of nowdays. They sounded tight and everyone looked like they were having fun and it really didn't matter that it was after midnight before things ended. The Alternate Routes were fantastic too! The crowd seemed pretty into them. Nice to see them getting some exposure.

All in all, [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I had a great time! And we got to see [livejournal.com profile] planetgal471 and hubby and [livejournal.com profile] nxdrockerchick8's friends and the crowd wasn't as bad as I thought they'd be. It probably helped some that we decided to stand up at the front of the stage. All of the hipster douches were behind us so I couldn't really see them and wasn't as annoyed by them as I normally am.

Although, seriously now. Barry hears voices, am I right? Not like ones telling him to do violent things. Just voices in general.

I have some photos from the show, but your guess is as good as mine as to when I might be able to upload them. =(

The sucky part of the night is that I got home at 1am. I checked my email, read the next part of Two Men & a Motorbike and then was still hyped up so I read part of my book and didn't actually fall asleep until around 2am. My alarm goes off at 5:15. Ouch. I think I looked like death warmed over when [livejournal.com profile] wilowisp stopped by to chat this morning. I'm still pretty exhausted but I'm caffeinated enough to make it through the day. Who needs sleep?

GAH! The new Butch Walker video is out there and I can't see it! *stupid internet filter*

I really should probably stop adding Star Trek icons to my userpics someday. But today is not that day. Also, I should probably stop downloading terrible movies featuring Karl Urban or Chris Pine because the chances of my actually having the time to watch any of them are pretty nil.

also, if there ever comes a day when I'm no longer amused by 'I'm on a Boat' it'll be a sad day indeed

I took the day off from work today. And I spent it productively!

Butch Walker photos from Detroit, Grand Rapids and Mpls

Ummmm. I kind of have no idea where to start this. YOU GUYS! I MET BUTCH FUCKING WALKER!!!

photographic evidence )

Soundcheck was fantastic. The show was AMAZING! My favorite Butch show ever! And it was at the Varsity, which really makes everything better. [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I camped out at the front of the stage, while [livejournal.com profile] carleton97, [livejournal.com profile] sister_wolf and Andy elected to hang out at a table. There were so many amazing moments during the show. And then he finished off "Canyons" RIGHT in front of me. As in, I was staring at his knees.

seriously close )

I have about 6 gigs of photos and video to try to dig through, so I'm not really sure when I'll get it all posted. I'm going to start uploading to YouTube tomorrow. And I really will write up better concert reviews. Sometime.

I can't believe it's all over

So yeah, hi. I'm home. That was the most brutal drive home from Michigan ever. DO NOT WANT blizzard. Also, I've pretty much lost my voice. Good thing Butch Walker is worth it!

I'm sure I'll try to write some jumbled, disoriented trip review at some time. But not tonight since I'm exhausted. Have a couple lovely photos instead.

Buuuuuuutch )

We have one more Butch show to go - tomorrow night! And we're getting into the soundcheck/meet & greet! I'm a little freaked out about it, but it'll all be good by tomorrow.

Just checking in from [livejournal.com profile] sammipunk's house before we leave for Grand Rapids. Last night's Butch Walker show in Detroit was A-MAZE-ING! I'm so enamored with that man. I was standing on the first tier, directly in front of his mic, and was pretty much eye-level with him. It kind of felt like he was singing just to me a few times. ;)

I'm having a great time. It's raining today though and that will make standing in line tonight a little more miserable. Then back home tomorrow, with a pit stop in Chicago to have lunch with [livejournal.com profile] moryssa!

I'm getting ready to take off for the wilds of Michigan with [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin! I will, of course, be bringing Crow T. Laptop with me and I'm sure I'll be Twittering a LOT over the next few days.



Locals! If you're not doing anything on Monday night, Butch is playing at the Varsity. Tickets are still available! It'll be a great time, I promise!

I suck

Because I haven't pimped this in a long time. But I'm apparently still in the running for one of the prizes? So download this and give a girl a boost in the download numbers, eh? ;)

You want a free Butch Walker ringtone, don't you? Just deny the thing where it asks you to sign up for ads and you're all set and free!

YAY! \o/

Amazon is giving away Butch Walker's "That Side of You" as a bonus track to Sycamore Meadows. I was so disappointed that it wasn't on the album because it's one of my favorite demos. But now I have a finished copy!

Happy Butch Release Day! =)
leighblack: (Butch - Butch + Wine = OTP)
2 new Butch Walker songs on iTunes!! And I have iTunes credits! Whee!!
leighblack: (Butch - B Diddy)
Ouch. Butch just cancelled his tour via his MySpace blog. Looks like he's still doing Lollapalooza and the ATL shows though.

secretly I'm happy, because I'll be able to go if he has dates later in the year/early next year
leighblack: (Butch - B Diddy)
Dear Butch Walker,

I love you unconditionally. You know that, right? I was able to look past the 'wearing no shoes in Ralph's' thing. I've even made peace with the fact that you've worked with Lindsay Lohan and Avril Lavigne.

but what the fuck is this?? )

Just...NO. You're so much hotter than Liam Gallagher with a porn 'stache. Please to be finding that hotness again.

Love & concern, Me
leighblack: (Butch - B Diddy)
Did you know that you can now pre-order the 1969 CD? Well, you can. And you should! I ordered mine yesterday. And it's going to be available on vinyl at some point! *swoons*

Trying to find an advance leak of it? Sucks. Searching for '1969' is not exactly getting what I want. =/

I know there was more I wanted to write about...Hmmmm, my brain doesn't seem to be giving it up.
leighblack: (Butch - B Diddy)
Hmmm. Did I get up before ass-crack of dawn today because there was 3 inches of snow and I want to beat traffic? Or so that I could download the brand new Butch Walker CD and get it on my iPod before I left for work? I think we all know the answer to this one! ;)

Argh. I have lots to say and no time to say it.

- Butch Walker lost everything he owns in the Malibu fire. Including ALL of his masters, recording equipment, instruments, documents, photos...everything. It's completely heartbreaking.

- They brought in someone to do chair massages at work today and now I have NO desire to do anything but melt into my desk.

- I had to go to two different places to get a copy of Waitress last night. Good because it's awesome that it'll make some more money. Bad because I had to drive somewhere else.

- I cut my hair a week ago. No one said a thing about it at work until three different people told me today that it was adorable. Delayed reaction much?

- I found a treasure trove of Cobra Starship and FOB icons today! Including a whole set from the video of the hole in the wall incident. *snicker*

- We have achieved Cobra Starship tickets! I can't even describe how excited I am about this. It's going to be hard to wait two months for the show!

- I figured out last night that I apparently I'm on a ten year cycle when it comes to watching wrestling. I first got into it when I was 11 or so. Then lost interest after a couple years. I got back into it at 21 and that time I was sucked in for several years. Now I'm 31 and I have a feeling I'll be watching it regularly again. Odd.

Dear Butch Walker,

STOP ANNOUNCING SHOWS THAT I CANNOT GO TO! If you are bored, GO ON TOUR! Preferably through the Midwest. Although even just to Chicago would be fine.

Love, me
leighblack: (TW - Flirtin With UR Copz)
Can you tell I'm avoiding work today? More interests, this time chosen by [livejournal.com profile] soyouthink! Who misread "seven" as "ten." It's okay though. =)

Captain Jack Harkness
Ahhhh, yes. Captain Jack! No, not that Captain Jack. This Captain Jack. He's the leader of Torchwood - Cardiff on the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood. He's quite yummy! And not particularly picky on who he sexes up.

it's just a ride
I explained this one for [livejournal.com profile] f_o_n_y here.

Kasey Chambers
She's an Australian country/bluegrass singer and I rather adore her. "More Than Ordinary" is one of my favorite songs ever.

Marvelous 3
You may have heard me talk about that Butch Walker guy one or two or a thousand times. He was in the Marvie 3 and they were awesome!

Rant in E-Minor
I explained this one for [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin here.

Ummmm, so there was this show called Firefly. And I'm kind of obsessed about it. And I kind of read Firefly fanfic alot. Rayne is fic featuring the pairing of River and Jayne.

stalking rock stars
It's what I do best! What's more fun than road tripping to the middle of nowhere with some of your best friends to see your favorite band play in a dinky club?? Or flying to the other side of the country so you can catch a special show?

My friend Chad is in this band. (or was in this band, as I think they've kind of given up) They're lots of fun and I had my drunkest time ever when I went to see them open for Duran Duran in Nashville.

A rather adorable movie starring Nathan Fillion and Keri Russell. I saw it four times in the theater. The DVD comes out next month!
