New Artist Spotlight

Many of you may have already heard of her, but Colbie Caillat is starting to really blow up and get big. She's got a great album and many have referred to her as the female Jack Johnson. I really enjoy her music and I'm not afraid to admit it. Here is one of her less known tracks. I'll try and include her most famous song as well.

New Favorite Radio Talk Show Host

As many of you know, I used to have a very long commute to school and work. We've since moved closer to both, but I still spend plenty of time in the car listening to the radio. Within the last couple of months, I've come across one particular host that I've really enjoyed listening to. His name is Colin Cowherd (terrible last name, I know) and his show takes place between 8am - 12pm EST on any local radio station that subscribes to ESPN Radio. He's one of the few thought-provoking hosts I've listened to, even if it does have to do with sports. He often ventures outside that realm, but he seems to put a lot of thought into what is said on the program.

Anyway, if you are looking for somebody other than the local meatball to listen to, check him out. After listening to him, I can't stand our local hosts now. He also has a good Podcast that can be downloaded on iTunes for free.

Mom Walker's Photography Skills

I recently received a few pictures taken by my mom with her brand new camera she got from dad for Christmas. She's apparently really getting into it, so much so that they took a road trip to Denver so she could take a weekend photography class. I think it's cool. Here are a few of the pictures she sent. I'm sure there will be many more!
