Taylor Swift pisses off the Rhode Island surfing community (or at least one dude)

Taylor Swift not sorry

It's Monday and it's almost the last day of 2013 (thank God!), so let's start off the week with a good ol' fashioned Taylor-Swift's-pissing-off-her-neighbors-once-again story, shall we?

When last we checked in with Taylor's beautiful white seaside manse in the quaint seaside town of Watch Hill, Rhode Island, Taylor had erected a funny no trespassing sign that had received lots of attention. She had also begun the task of getting many of her neighbors to hate her. Oh, and there was that whole thing with the guy who swam two miles in the ocean just to get close to her house. 

Yeah, weird. 

Well now comes word that Taylor is sort of ticking off the surfing community of Watch Hill (or at least one surfer dude) with some of her unorthodox and possibly shady building practices.

Rodney Carrington and Carrie Underwood are an item, at least according to my husband

Update: Well that sucks. It looks like a few of Carrie's less jovial fans must have gotten to Rodney and he's had second thoughts about his marriage to Carrie because he's now taken down the post. Sad, I thought they made a cute couple. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Wish I had taken a screen shot of the original post to put in the deleted one's place.  

This is funny. Being that I'm the mighty protector of completely useless facts and country music trivia, my husband likes to get one over on me by breaking country music news to me and likes nothing more than telling me a story I haven't already heard. 

So here's his latest shocking tidbit. Apparently comedian Rodney Carrington and Carrie Underwood have recently gotten married.

Let the LOLz commence.

Carolina Chocolate Drops losing a member, gaining two more

CarolinaChocolateDrops

Carolina Chocolate Drops is one of those bands who I hear about quite often and I find their sound very interesting, but I never get the chance to write about them. 

Well here's a story I thought might interest fans of the band. 

A note was posted to their Twitter today that gives fans an update of what's going on with the group. Seems the band's getting ready to shake things up with the departure of one band member and the arrival of two new ones.
