It’s been a little while since someone around here has done a morning news and notes piece. It’s been even longer since I’ve published one on this here website. So let’s do some news and notes.

We’ve still got this website for a little while longer. Let’s enjoy it while we still can, shall we?

Mississippi State news and notes from around the internet

Really cool interview involving a member of the 2014 Mississippi State Bulldogs football team

Ben Beckwith went over and did a pretty cool interview on the Thunder & Lightning podcast (radio show?) and it’s something you should check out ahead of this weekend’s game against LSU.

Just general nonsense that is going on elsewhere

A dude in Texas caught a dinosaur.

I’ve been alligator hunting before. I did not catch a dinosaur. That’s a dinosaur.

Today’s tunes:

I love Flatland Cavalry. They make good music. Really good music, in fact. Stuff I think you should listen to. Sure, they like Texas Tech, but don’t let that take away from the fact that their work is solid and their songwriting is brilliant. I’ve seen them live. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Yes, this is the Hokey Pokey. We’re going to listen to it today. It’s one of my son’s favorite songs. This version is fantastic. It has no business being as good as it is. So let’s listen. It’s a classic.

OK, back on topic a bit. Let’s focus and finish strong. Like with Caamp’s Apple Tree Blues. It’s delightful and pleasant to listen to. I’ve seen these guys perform as well and they definitely put on a fun show.
