I'm a little bit country. You're a little bit German hardcore techno.

Not much to blog about today, so I'll show off my new cowboy hat. I'm feeling a bit of a poseur vibe, like Dave Gahan in the "Personal Jesus" video. At least I'm an American, so I have a little more of a right to wear a cowboy hat than him.


Man, I need to trim the 'burns.

I get 10 music geek points by declaring Revolver to be the Beatles' best album. +/- 2 points for doing so via T-shirt, depending on your attitude about such displays.

Can you wear a cowboy hat in public in Ahia?

Just got back from Busch Gardens. Suffice to say I was one of the few with a collared shirt.

that hat might actually be kinda cool. but it's hard for me to tell because of the flash and shit in the picture. man, doesn't your camera have a self timer or something?

doug, how was BG aside from the lack of collared shirts?

spydrz - It's not like I'm swathed in seersucker, sippin' on a mint julep. I mainly got the hat for the upcoming trip to Hilton Head, which is well below the Mason-Dixon line.

I'm no fan of amusement parks, but I'd rather go to BG than Paramount's Kings Dominion. Seems like there's more there for ride-averse people like me. Nothing beats Duff Gardens, though.

heartbreak - Yeah, my camera's got a timer, but I've yet to figure out how to use it. Until then, if I want a self-portrait, I've got two options: 1) arm's length or 2) mirror.

I made it on all four of the rolley coasters, and then went to the new ride, "DarKastle." Some kind of 4-D scary house ride. That line was ridiculous. I hadn't been on Apollo's Chariot before, it's one of those coasters where you get a little bar across your legs that looks like a control stick from a Ski-Doo. Your legs are free to move, and there's no actual car around you-just air. It was pretty good. The free ticket made it so much more fun.

Wow, love your hat! Revolver is my favorite Beatles album as well. Plus 2 points for me. :)

+2 for (still) keeping it real, long after most of America has dropped the "Livestrong" bracelet.

+2 (pending) for the sideburns. Turn 'em into mutton chops, and we're talking double digit point territory...

Micah said...

spydrz - Sounds like fun (if you dig that sort of stuff). Do they still have DaVinci's Cradle?

Kate - Thanks, babe. Revolver definitely was their best. Not that what followed sucked.

CB - I still hold bi-weekly meetings with Matt Damon and John Kerry, where we lament the passing of the bracelets. Mark my words: their popularity will surge when the Tour gears up in a couple of weeks.

As for my 'burns, I invite you to my Imagestation album "Spring Break 2005." I went to the beach with a full beard and had fun with facial hair. Had Neil Young mutton chops one day. A funky Frank Zappa thing going on another day. A civil servant mustache on another. And I've got the pictures to prove it. Good times.

Captain Backfire said...

I've never ordered prints from Imagestation before, but I'm damn tempted now. Insofar as I don't have a wife or kids to keep pictures of on my desk, I'm thinking "Cavalcade of Micah's Facial Hair" will suffice for now. Jolly good show.

Micah said...

Be careful what you wish for. Sony sent me a coupon for 100 free prints since they screwed up and deleted some of my pictures (I had to reload them, which explains why the "St. Maarten 2004" album appears so recently in my list). I'm not sure if there's 100 pics that I want that I haven't already ordered in the past. So maybe you'll be getting a Best Friends Forever/Micah's Facial Hair collage. Or not.

I wouldn't want your co-workers to wonder about you...more than they already do.

Vacation fun? Nah son, you can go claiming facial hair points if you don't rock it for more than month. That's almost as bad as those cats that get a mohawk for shits and giggles, but cut it off in a day or so.

See also; WEAK.

If you are holding down a real job right now, then you should be representing hardcore. I want to see sideburns that connect to a mustache. Maintained for at least a month.

Micah said...

Well, I don't go all facial hair hardcore, but I do sport the sideburns year-round. Just now they are getting annoyingly bushy.

this.heartbreak.shall.endure. said...

meh. here's two points.

Micah said...

YES!

jasdye said...

fool! there's nothing hardcore about depeche mode. and as proof, i listened to violator all freshman year.

i'm not hardcore, unless i live hardcore.
