Tuesday Tunes: A Graceful Breakdown

Original graphic by The Tattooed Book Geek

You know the drill. It was Monday and I was either too busy or too forgetful to remember that it was Monday. You would think by now that having a consistent hankering for a sub from my favorite pizza place on the day that it’s closed would be a dependable clue, but then you aren’t the country fried steak that is my gray matter. I do this so often that it could be a running joke if it were funny, but I’m not going to dwell on that.

A lot of important stuff is going on this week, everything from finally hitting this or that two-towns-over for Thing #5 that I need to get a new ID in this new state that I call home, having a fully functioning kitchen, getting the storage closet properly set up and maybe seeing some warmer weather to ending the battle in my head over whether or not I’m just biting the cost bullet and getting that Optimus Prime-is-a-crocodile figure, I’ve got enough serious and stupid things on my mind. Sometimes, “all you can do is smile.”

Which brings us to State of Grace. As it seems with all things these days I first learned about this group through B-Movie TV. Really, if you haven’t put it on your Roku device by now just go do it now and then come back, place is a treasure trove. Formed by Tom Berg, Ron Rivera and Cisco Russo, the band is all about good old classic rockin’ and rollin’ and “Breakdown” is now one of those songs where I have to stop whatever I’m doing when it comes on in the filler rotation because it just makes me feel so damn good.
