Here is the recently released line-up for the 2012 Voodoo Festival that is one of my favorite annual concert series in New Orleans. The list of artists couldn't be more eclectic with big names from every style and genre.  Be sure to check it out at the Voodoo Experience.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Just finished Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith and totally loved the book. The book combines elements of history with a paranormal world that creates an entirely alternate tale of the Civil War.  I loved the concept and cannot wait for the movie that is to be released this coming summer 2012.  Check out the book if you haven't already and see the movie trailer below.

Perilous Light by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Incredible sequel from a very promising Author! The book picks up a year after the last book and quickly dives in with plenty of adventure and romance. It is not long before they return to Energo for more adventures. Probably my favorite part is the further development of Kevin and Samantha. Also learning more about Calvin was very exciting. The story provides plenty of action, romance, and comedy. I can't wait to read the next and consider this book even better than the last!

The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer

     The Emperor of All Maladies is a magnificent, profoundly humane “biography” of cancer—from its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence. I was thoroughly impressed and enjoyed the book from cover to cover.  A riveting read that will please both medical and non-medical related readers.  A book I will keep on the shelf to read again in the future.  Dr. Mukherjee undertook an enormous endeavor to capture the history of oncology as a mere fellow and is fully deserving of the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction.

The Art of Flight

This new snowboarding video is incredible.  It is reminds of planet of the earth footage on steriods.  The mastermind of Brain Farm and sponsored by Red Bull, probably the best snowboarding video out there.

Running Gear

Wanted to show off my new running shoes and gear. The Adidas adiZERO Boston Shoes have cut about a whole minute off my mile splits (although my old shoes were about 2-3 years old and my splits had much to be desired). I couldn't be happier in a pair of shoes and the bright color forces me to run faster. Also, my new winter running gloves are really helping in the cold winter morning runs.

I had to put this clip up.  I have listened to mutemath for several years, but recently discovered how incredible they are live while watching palladia on television. I spent almost 2 hours straight watching them the other day. They are originally from New Orleans and the drummer is probably one of my favorites.  Definitely a band to follow closely.
