Jason Riggs: Blog

Annual Blog Entry

Posted on April 13, 2011

Hey Everybody.

Okay.  My last blog entry was over a year ago.  That's sad.  But, on the other hand, it seems like apologizing for not blogging is kind of the cool thing to do these days.  So, I blame perpetual coolness.  Also, I've been a little busy with life.  In a six month period, I got married, got a dog, and got a house.   

So, you'd think I'd have a lot to blog about.  Well, I got romantic songs to cover my illicit love affair and subsequent marriage.  I don't want to blog about my dog because there's nothing worse than someone with no children constantly talking about their canine's habits and diet.  And, I can't blog about my cool new rock star pad, because there is nothing rock'n'roll about sprinkler heads and accent walls.

Can you understand my conundrum?

According to all the big star blogs I read, you're supposed to tell the people what books you've read, what movies you've seen, what you think of Charlie Sheen, etc. 

So here goes... 


I haven’t read anything lately, but stuff on raising German Shepherds.  I can always tell when it has been too long between books because I can feel my IQ dropping.


I saw the “King’s Speech,” finally.  It was brilliant.


I’ve been listening to Lucinda Williams’ latest album.  It’s great.  “Buttercup” is catchy as hell.  I also liked the latest Social Distortion record, too.


I watched the “Kennedys” mini-series on the Reelz network.  Reelz is a little known channel, but they film here in Albuquerque, so I’m giving them props.  I’ve been annoying family and friends with my Bobby Kennedy imitation.

As far as Mr. Sheen, well, I really liked him in Ferris Bueler.

There you have it.  I'll try to blog more in the coming year.  And, if you hail from the land of enchantment, catch my show this Friday.
