I’ve seen these boys live. Have you? I took my pretty-boy singer/songwriter son, Hunter to the 40 Licks Tour when he was in 6th grade. I don’t get super-starstruck, but when I saw Mick Jagger take the stage, my first thought was “ohmygod…I’m breathing the same AIR as MICK!. I know, right? D O R K.  I was flooded with images of The Ed Sullivan Show,  Studio 54, Altamont, Andy Warhol, Maryanne, Bianca, Jerry, and the fact that I was THERE…with Hunter? Man.

Hunter, 2002


I’ve said it before, but I felt like I was taking him to SCHOOL.  This time, though, he was working on his Masters Degree.

I’m telling you people who laugh and make fun of the age of these legends. GO. Take it all in, and realize that we will NEVER see a band like this ever again.


This WILL be the last time.

This Is Kind Of A Big Deal, You Guys…Please VOTE For Hunter Stroud And The Freebies!

Hunter Stroud – How can you turn that face down?


At the risk of completely looking like Dina Lohan,  the Mother of All Stage Mothers (what?), I am asking you to take two seconds to vote for my son’s band TODAY.  There’s a lovely, local festival here in the Seattle area called Whaling Days, which he and his mates have a chance to be on the headlining bill.

If you are on Facebook, here is the LINK. <<<CLICK ON THAT!
The new single by Hunter Stroud and the Freebies, “All This Time”


Here’s the thing: We only have until MIDNIGHT tonight–Pacific Standard Time. (So my friends on the east coast and in other countries can still vote!)


Don’t make me post more cute pictures of their dreamboat lead singer…because you know I will.

And, GO!! Hurry?  Thank you!

Daniel Craig’s SNL Promos With Taran Killam – ‘Double Oh HEAVEN!’


Daniel Craig SNL Promo - H 2012




I’m dying. No, I’m actually DEAD. The promos for this weekend’s SNL with host DANIEL BLOODY CRAIG (!) are so funny that I can barely contain myself.

via THR.com:

Daniel Craig — best known as being the darkest, broodiest James Bond ever — is indulging his wackier side as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live.

And based on these promos alongside Taran Killam, the actor is game for some serious silliness, spoofing his tough-guy image (“I don’t like guns!“) in one take, fending off Killam’s amorous advances in another, and — in the best sequence — embarking on a montage that sees the two sharing cupcakes, wearing silly wigs and giant sunglasses, and playing Monopoly. 

It’s all such madcap hilarity, Killam dubs it “double-oh heaven” — a Bond pun that sends Craig heading for the exit.”

Let’s watch together…over and over and over, okay?

Daniel’s little shrug before he crams a cupcake into his mouth? Priceless.

And MUSE as the musical guests?  I’m in anglophile Double-Oh HEAVEN. If only the musical guest were a very-pregnant Adele, though. I think my head would explode.


Aaaaaand…this is ME realizing I won’t be home to see it–and our DVR isn’t working.  Hunter?

Hunter – Playing at FUEL in Pioneer Square, Saturday Night, Oct. 6th!

I hope you’re happy I’m going to your first big gig in downtown Seattle at FUEL, Bruv.  Awww, you know I wouldn’t miss it for the world, Boo.

See what I did there??
