We like stuff. Granted, the Bible is pretty clear on the whole store-up-your-crowns-in-Heaven-not-on-Earth thing, but we just can’t help ourselves. Sometimes we see, read, play, do, taste, or experience things that we think are cool. These are some of those things:
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
It’s a good thing that our wives are good friends, because they’ve had to spend a lot of time together while the two of us chased each other around with knives and grenades.
EA Sports NCAA Football
Derek learned everything he knows about football from this game. More specifically, he learned everything he knows about football from losing a lot at this game.
Central Arkansas may not be globally recognized as a culturally significant metro area, but it’s got its share of good eats. We at NGYN particularly endorse the following fine establishments:
- The Flying Fish in downtown Little Rock
- Mr. Pancho’s in Maumelle
- Faby’s in Conway
If you’d like to be added to that list, we gratefully accept endorsements paid in restaurant gift cards. (Just kidding… only not really.)
Your humble authors are also both blessed to have fantabulous cooks as spouses, and enjoy many home-cooked dishes and delectable treats. (When left to fend for themselves, they’re also known to resort to the occasional can of chili or box of mac-and-cheese.)
There are just way too many bands that inspire and entertain us to list here, but if we were to try, that list would definitely include Bon Iver, Bob Marley, Radiohead, The Arcade Fire, and David Crowder Band.
Movies / TV
Ditto the above – both Derek and PJ have pretty sizable DVD collections and Netflix queues, the contents of which are far too numerous to list here, but their most recent and ravenous obsessions include: Where the Wild Things Are, Fight Club, The Road, Lost, Fringe, Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy, The Office, Friends, and Band of Brothers.
The Outdoors in Arkansas
We can’t speak for the rest of the world, but having both been born and raised in the South, Derek and PJ have an inherent love of the outdoors. So, when the weather’s right, you’ll often find them (and other members of their posse) hiking, running, or riding along Central Arkansas’ many outdoor trails.
