1AM-True Blood and Teddy Pendergrass

I think the one thing I can thank my parents for is introducing me to Jazz. Through my ongoing musical education in my childhood I easily name Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross, and Chaka Khan as three of my favorite singer.

The fact that at 2 I was squeaking "Hey thats Lena Horne!" When she was the good witch in The Wiz and can guiltily say I have original Jackson 5 Albums on Vinyl...

Yes I had an early lesson on Jazz, Motown, and Blues. So it comes to little surprise that when I have to meditate to get my mind off my pain its not Tibetan monks or whale song that I put in my music player but Teddy Pendergrass "Love TKO"

I've also been watching episodes of True Blood Season 1. DAMN. Talk about Vmpire Pee-oh-rn!
In the famous words of Lafayette "Child, make me clutch my pearls!"

And no, I am not buying seasons and seasons of online shows. Thanks to Crash the computer guru I found I can search for Torrents and downlad just about anything I want to watch on http://scrapetorrent.com/

We are loving it so much we donated money and have a e-mail relationship with the mod.

Crash and I are constantly seeding things and uploading movies we get to the site.

I've even traded some music with the guy in the form of "mixtapes" trying to get him into Old Skool Hip hip and political rap like Dead Prez.

He laughed when he saw my picture saying the only part of me that looked black was my ass.


So, go on youtube listen to some teddy, Chaka, or Luther, hell try Lena Horne! And if you want to get some videos but like me are short on cash (Thanks Bush!) Try uTorrent and Scrapetorrent.

Tell them KJ and Crash sent ya!

Jim Butcher is a god.

I remember seeing a softcover book by Jim Butcher in the "Book Recycle" pile in my crappy office during my three year stint with Americorp.

As often I had loads of free time on my hands and staring at the computer made my eyes hurt I had finished my book and had hours to kill before my shift ended.

I absently picked up the book "The dresden files" by Jim Butcher.

It has been almost four years and I have read every Dresden book I could get, Then The "Codex Alera" series and watched pirated copies of the "Dresden Files" that SciFi channel was stupid enough to discontinue.

Let me being by saying even I get bored by authors, skip paragraphs, stop reading a book. Hell Even Piers Anthony has some books that I just had to stop reading because I was so bored.

There are a handful of authors who hold my attention so soundly that I own everything they write. Ann McCaffrey, Issac Asimov (especially anything with Norby the mixed up Robot)Mercedes Lackey, Spider Robinson, and Jim Butcher.

It is a difficult place to get to, my high horse list of "F*^&ing awesome writers" but Jim Butcher is one of those writers who I will recommend to each and everyone of my reader friends.

As it is I have made several friends of mine in to "Butcher Brigands" They too own every book he has written and have 2nd copies to lend out as "loaners"

I've no doubt that Jim Butcher will never know how much I love his writing. I'm sure the royalties alone assure him of his deep fan base. But to those of you not yet in the know, even if you don't like Sci-fi, or Fantasy, or war. If you are simply a fan of great authors; get yourself to a bookstore and read Jim Butcher.

And if he ever asks, tell him KJ sent you.

My new chocolate...

Burn Notice, the USA Show on HULU.com

It is the best spy show I have watched in a long time. It is realistic enough and not too over the top. Makes having spies believable. The actors in it are quality and draw you in without being overactive.

The polt is new each week and is reminiscent of Macgyver it is a new series that I hope unlike the "Dresden Files" will catch on and stay here for a while.
