Watch “Dunwells perform live at the 96.3 K-TWIN studios” on YouTube

Awesome week for us at 96.3 K-TWIN because not only did the vending machine guy re-stock the Rice Krispie Treat rack, but we also got a visit from UK band “The Dunwells.”

The Dunwells are a British folk rock band including Joseph Dunwell (vocals, guitar), David Dunwell (vocals, guitars, piano, banjo), Jonny Lamb (vocals, drums), Rob Clayton (bass, vocals), and Dave Hanson (lead guitar, vocals, pedal steel). Three of the guys Joseph, David and Jonny stopped by our studios and performed live for about 30 minutes. The told us some adorable stories about starting the band and touring as a group. Here’s a little taste test of how fantastic the Dunwells sound live and if you’d like to see more footage, drop by our station website at www.ktwin.com

I WOULD ROCK THIS – ROBOT SUIT

You know what I need? For real, do you you know what I really need? A robot suit. I’ve put some thought into this, and I think a lot of the world’s woes could be solved by one awesome woman in her robot suit.

I would trade in my current car, all my future cars and figure out a way to go back in time and trade in every car that I’ve ever owned in the past, just for one of these robot suits featured in this video. Why is life so unfair?

If any mad scientists out there are looking for test pilots, feel free to hit me up on Twitter. Its @MissShannan. I’m willing to travel and have excellent reflexes. Plus I’m pretty tiny, so it could be a small robot suit to cut down on the initial production costs.

So far, I’m not seeing much of a downside to this particular plan, so feel free to give me a shout in a week or two when you’ve worked out the details.

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY- THE FORCE WAS STRONG BUT OUR DOG WAS STRONGER

All that remains of “Han Solo.” He survived Carbonite, but could not defeat the family dog.

THANKSGIVING WAS A BLAST, NOW BACK TO REALITY

We hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving. After a long weekend, I go back to work tomorrow, so look forward to more check-ins from Mundania. I know you can hardly bear the anticipation.

I FEEL PRETTY. OH SO PRETTY.

Last night my friend Stef and I went to the fantastic Make-up Happy Hour thrown by my friends Jungle Red Salon and Spa. We had a great time over a few glasses of wine, some tasty snacks and a fantastic make-up demonstration by the Jungle Red staff. My girlfriends will tell you that I’m usually a tad “make-up deficient” so I love having an expert give me tips and pretty me up.

Jodi, the make up consultant and aestheticism who was kind enough to help me out was a wealth of information for a novice like myself.

We talked about make-up application and using the correct a brushes, so next time you see me I will be trying to compete with the fierce queens on RuPaul’s Drag Race.  On second thought, I’m still way too lazy to put in that much work, but at least I’ll have done my eyebrows and covered up the bags under eyes.

Pre Make-upPost Make-up

I leaned a few things surrounding the Make-up Happy Hour that I would like to share:

1)      I can use bronzer to help define the bone structure

2)      I can buy some awesome facial cleansers, serums and such at Jungle Red Salon and Spa

3)      If I buy some awesome facial cleansers, serums and such from Jungle Red make sure to put them away, or Cyclone Kid will dump them out on all over my floor and moisturize my stairs.

By the way, he’s adorable. And I love him, even though he obviously wants his mama to look wrinkly and tired.

A BUMBLING OPPORTUNITY

I was this close to bringing this little guy home. I could definitely use a “Bumble” in my life. But I like this little dude too much to resign him to a fate of either being chewed up by our dog or aggressively hugged to pieces by our Cyclone Kid. I’m sure he’ll find a home with a nice suburban lady who can respectfully snuggle him amongst her ceramic Santa with the overly red cheeks and Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer lawn ornaments. Bumble on my friend.
