Easter 2008 with the Birmingham Chapmans

Thursday, March 27, 2008

Easter weekend has come and gone. Yet, the candy found in plastic eggs continues to linger on. Now that Amelia is a big girl at 2-and-a-half, the Easter Egg hunt is faster-paced. Please scroll down the page at: http://chrisachapman.net to view several short video clips from Easter morning.

Do not forget to view family photos by clicking on the gallery link at the top of this blog. Specifically, the Easter photos can be directly accessed via this link.

I'm trying to embed this video in a direct post, instead of transmitting it from YouTube. Here goes. Easter is over at this point. But, uploading videos sometimes takes lots of time. Memories and WiFi-connected uploads are not the best match.

Drive-By Truckers looking good on national TV

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Nice stuff. I think Kevin (my friend from Muscle Shoals) will like this one very much. Glad to see the band promoting their new album on Conan's show. Check out the band's web site for links to more music. Their music is on Amazon.

Finally, let me quote the 4 of 5 Stars review by Robert Christgau for Rolling Stone from January 24:

Prospects were poor for what turns out to be an overflowing song bag of an
album by Lynyrd Skynyrd's arty nephews. Their last winner was 2004's The Dirty

...But Mike Cooley is on his game — the pro-bad-girl "Lisa's Birthday" and pro-weird-guy "Bob" shoot exceptionally straight. And knowing he has to carry the team, Patterson Hood executes —scene-setters about domestic life as celestial respite, endless struggle and occasion to drink; dark-siders about crystal meth (named) and suicide (implied); memoir of an opening act on the road; and two agonizing Iraq songs, one of which sinks pained voice into guitar attack, strength against strength. You could argue that the Truckers should have revved up this Skynyrd side more often. But instead they let the songwriting speak for itself, and it sings loud and clear.

Wayne Rooney, move over. There's a new (Chap)MAN on the pitch!

Ethan took to the soccer field for the first time this morning. Ready to go. As one of the youngest and least-experienced, his moves aren't nearly as refined as some others. But, he had fun. After we returned from practice, we spent the afternoon in the front yard practicing some more. The gallery on the blog has some more action shots from today's action.
