Yellow Belly by Thrice + 2011 Tour Dates

Like many Thrice listeners out there, I’ve been anxiously awaiting their upcoming album.  Naturally, after finding out that “Major/Minor” comes on 9/20/11, my anticipation has amplified.  So I’ve been whetting my appetite on random Thrice YouTube vids since then, hoping to find something new.

Yesterday I got my wish when I stumbled across several videos of an untitled song they played live back in April 2011 (at Baboozle).  Unfortunately, most of the videos either cut off before the song was finished or had less than stellar sound quality.  Not anyone’s fault.  But then today…  Thrice to the rescue…!  They released a clean version of their new song.  Click below to hear it!

Looking For Motivation, Self Invite

Some days, it’s difficult to get started.

In an effort to beat the doldrums, I did a search on bored kitty and unmotivated kitty images.  I figured I might stumble onto a fitting pic, since cats naturally seem to have that disinterested look.

Although I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, I did end up chuckling for a bit.  (Thanks for the laughs, LOLcats!)  After spending about half an hour perusing silly kitty images, I picked a favorite.

Something about the way this cat is sitting has me convinced that he understands how I feel right now.

I’d like to write a post about new content updates in both Guild Wars (Winds of Change) and Maplestory (Chaos).  But the quest for inspiration is on pause for now.  Like this kitty, I’ll also be “waitin for cheezeburger man.”
