My recently played music tracks!

Here's something not new, but still cool; a somewhat real-time display of what I've been listening to! Powered by, I have an audio scrobbler that keeps tracks which 'tracks' I've been listening to. Kinda geeky, I know, but I still think its neat.

"Scrobbling" is a feature which keeps tracks are being played. Like mentioned before, it tracks anything I play on my computer, iPhone or iPad! Not necessarily in real time, but it will eventually get synchronized with my account at some point. You've probably noticed that I've written about before, utilizing some Wordpress and other website plugins, but these days I am just using it to "track" my tracks played. Now you can still see what I've got spinning on my player at any time by clicking HERE! You can also join and become music buddies; so we can each check out what we're both listening to.

NOTE: If you see Justing Bieber and other "pop' tunes on my list of top 10 tracks being played, its not me! (its for my boys and general party-vibe music... ;)

2017 Surly Brewing Co. Release Calendar!

Some of you may or may not know that I am a big fan of the Surly Brewing Co based out of Minnesota. I collect, consume and partake in the beers as well as their Surly Gives A Damn charitable work (yeah, I've done charitable things with them from - rounding up Nice Ride bikes from the U of M campus to spending time cleaning up at the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's ReStore location. Aside from doing these great things for the state, they kinda kicked it all off back in 2011 its key, now deemed, "Surly Bill" which has since opened the door for many other great breweries in the great state of Minnesota such as Fulton, Dangerous Man and many, many others. On top of their great beers, I simply love their 'vibe' as well as design that they have!

Even though I am somewhat sad and disappointed in more recent news that co-founder and head brewer, Todd Haug left only to join up with another forceful brewery, Three Floyds based out of Indiana, I am still diggin' what Surly does and will continue to support them. I am eagerly anticipating their releases this year, especially from their bottle program. Click below to check out their 2017 release schedule as mentioned in one of their recent e-mail newsletters:
