Quick update. I'm writing this from Tulsa, OK. No offense to any Oklahoma readers, but good god, your state is pretty horrible. Of course, all I've seen of it is Hawthorne Suites. Which I'm pretty sure has been the setting for a horror movie... or an actual murder. Okay, enough complaining. I just wanted to say that I'm still in the middle of my cross-country move, but will soon have all the finale songs once I settle into LA. Sorry for the delay and if any of you live in Albuquerque, NM or Las Vegas, NV, email me with some restaurant/tourist suggestions! Thanks!

Tunerrific Tuesday

Trying to get a few posts in before the big move out west. So I caught up on Sunday's GA episode. Sweet Lord, that was sad. I need to stop watching it with other people though, as I can only hold back the waterworks for so long. Around the third act break is when I usually go to the bathroom, drown all the toilet paper in tears, and then walk out asking if we can switch to Spike real quick to catch some UFC. And a nice performance by John Cho, who coincidentally used to tutor my roommate back in the day. My roommate now makes a gazillion dollars at Goldman Sachs, so I guess John must've done a decent job. Anyways, only two shows with good songs since my Friday post:
How I Met Your Mother - "Milk"
"Mother of Pearl" - Roxy Music

Grey's Anatomy - "Damage Case"
"Oh My Love" - Inara George
"Tragedy (Austin Cello Version)" - Brandi Carlile
"Nowhere Warm" - Kate Havnevik
"On The Radio" - Regina Spektor
"Something Good" - The Legends
*thanks Megan and Krissi!

Freakin Finally Friday

Wow. I suck. Half a month without a new post, I apologize. It's really because there haven't been enough comments recently. Just kidding. No I'm not, pour on the comments, folks. Anyways, I'll update more later this week, but it's been crazy times in Captain Oats' stable. I'm basically packing my car and driving cross-country to LA in about a week. Any fun suggestions for the road trip? Maybe I'll blog the entire trip, Jack Kerouac-style... and write the next "Great American Blog"? "On the Road, Again"? Um, yeah. No.

Anyways, before we get to the tunes, I gotta thank Give Me My Remote for writing up a little post about this site! You should definitely check out GMMR, lots of good interviews... and it was behind the online petition that perhaps led to the supersizing of the Office finale.
