Fin De Semana! 7-10-15

I’m a finalist to represent El Paso on the Texas Taco Council. Super excited.

Speaking of El Paso, we had a UFO sighting.

On the heels (pun intended) of his talk about Mexico, Donald Trump gets an invitation to learn more about the border.

What I’m Listening To

The new Turnpike Troubadours song, which is a sneak preview of the self-titled album they’ve got coming in September. Find it here. I like the Troubadours because they’ve got an accessible, catchy, and essentially good-natured take on country. This song is no different and I’m really hoping this next album blows up and makes them huge(r). Listen here.

What I’m Drinking

A guest brought a bottle of this to our 4th of July cookout. I don’t normally like IPAs but damned if this one wasn’t smooth and not so hoppy it burned all your taste buds off. I guess they’re only for the 4th, so they might be hard to come by. Since the crisp, clear freshness of the beer is what made it so drinkable, it might be worth waiting until next 4th to pick up a new one. I know I’ll be keeping an eye out.

UFO Sighting in El Paso? Probably not, but hey, it’s something to look at.

Instead of doubling down on sports where they’re really successful, NMSU usually throws money at football instead, something they’re famously the worst at. Which is a shame, considering they’re doing it at the expense of students and parents who pay tuition.

Willie Nelson, Ertha Kitt and Dinesh D’Souza all have arrest records too, but I can’t help thinking if a Texas State Trooper took a picture with them he wouldn’t have to go to counseling.

Justin Townes Earle-Call Ya Momma

Featuring a bit of a tougher country-rock sound than I’m used to hearing from JTE, this is the first single of his upcoming album “Absentee Fathers.” His earlier albums were steeped in pre-war blues, folk, country and classy R&B. If this is a grittier more country inflected record, I’m all for it.

What I’m Drinking

I don’t think you’re supposed to drink beer on Good Friday? I drank some water.
