Kurt’s Blog: Baconfest & Grammys Recap

Baconfest

It lived up to the hype…it was AWESOME.

Here I am drinking bacon/maple shots out of an ice pig.

Note: Jay had an accident on Friday night…he fell down…and hurt his face, so of course, as his friends, we spent the day pretending to beat him up. Note #2: Jay is fine, and probably faking this. He should have gotten an eye patch, ha ha!

 

Baconfest is AWESOME. It’s nothing but bacon foods & beer…and it’s as good as it sounds.

I don’t know where to start…with a bacon cookie? bacon cupcake? bacon explosion sandwiches (I had three of them), the bacon pizza from Gusto? Or, just the bacon lollipop (which was just bacon rolled up and on a stick).

I think bacon lollipop was my favorite…less grease on my fingers, and more bacon in my belly.

Did I eat all the bacon that I could? No. I still had room somehow to head to Zombie Burger with my dad & son, and ordered a double Hamityville Horror burger, featuring a variety of bacon on it as well.

Definitely hoping that we get the chance to go back next year (selfishly because I have 5 drink tickets remaining, ha ha), but mainly, because it’s such a good time, and a really well put together event.

Yes, it was crowded, but I didn’t feel crowed…and lines for the bathroom? You put 8,000 bacon lovers together, and that’s bound to happen anytime.

I meant to take more pictures, but to be honest…was having such a good time that I totally forgot.

Shoutouts to: my wife, Ryan, Woz, Tracy, Jay,  Heather, Luke, Chris, Jon (welcome to America buddy), and Carrie (sorry Jon is allowed to stay, ha ha)…good times.

 

The Grammys

Thought the Grammys last night was excellent. I felt like it was good pace, didn’t have too many downtimes, and thought the performances were outstanding.

Highlights:
Fun.

I thought Fun. was the best thing about the Grammys last night…their performance was AWESOME. Adding the rain was just an added bit of greatness.

Justin Timberlake

I was on the fence with his new stuff…but he was AWESOME, and his album will be crazy good.

Miguel

Great singer, great song.

Carrie Underwood

I thought she looked amazing…and sounded great. To be honest, the whole electrical dress thing didn’t seem all the great. I felt like it’s been done before, and the way they were hyping it, well, it just seemed a letdown. Still though, it’s a highlight…because it’s Carrie Underwood, and she can do no wrong.

Frank Ocean besting Chris Brown

Anyone besting Chris Brown is a great thing…sore loser.

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars & Fun. need to come to Des Moines…and fast!

Taylor Swift

I thought the opening with Taylor Swift was excellent…and never once thought for a second that Taylor Swift was using a British accent to dis Harry Styles. Maybe I just wasn’t paying attention? I thought, if anything, she was just using a “dopey guy” voice. Now, maybe if she had put Jake Gylenhaal up on that weird dartboard thing, I would have seen more of a connection.

Did I mention that Fun. was AWESOME?

Wait…Prince Was There?

He was there right…that wasn’t some body double from Weekend at Bernies was it? Seriously…a cane now? The hood? And he said 7 words. The comeback begins?

How old is Prince? 55, tops? He shouldn’t be that frail, right?

 

AWESOME is as AWESOME does!

The woman who as a child was the basis for the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" is gravely ill. It was thought by many at the time that the psychedelic song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
