Is this thing on?

I know, I know...I've gotta some major flak for my blogging skills being sub-par.  I can't say that's going to change overnight but I am hear to tell you that things have been BUSY!!

I'm so happy to say that I've been writing sooooo many new songs - I wish I could get them all out to your right now but I literally have a whole box set of new stuff that's gonna take some time to get out there.  In the meantime (like my segue?), "In The Meantime, Volume 3" is just about done and available at a live Mason Douglas show near you!


So what the hell else has been going on?  Here's a picture tour of the past couple months:


Roasted Kent Blazy, Cory Batten, Karyn Rochelle...Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Matt Jenkins...


Gave up my seat so some guy named Randy Houser could practice singing...

Played and stayed the most amazing seaside resort EVER! (Thank you Jack & Diane!)

Opened up for Vince Gill!

House Concerts in NC, TN, OH, IN, GA, NE, & CO!

Gilroy Garlic Festival in California!

Road the legendary Tour de Fat in Nashville!

Rehearsing the arena tour at Opryland (mmm hmm)

Hit Alcatraz...

Risked life and limb to see the Aron Ralston rock...

And did a billion other cool things!  I just wanted to update you - find me on Facebook and let me know what you've been up to.  Rock on...

Mason's Best Gifts for 2010!

Well, it's almost Christmas! So Merry, Merry Christmas boys and girls...I truly hope you have a wonderful holiday. There are so many choices for gifts this year and, while you're hopefully pretty close to be done with your shopping, you may have a few last-minute items left to get.

That's where I come in!

I thought I'd give you my vote for the Top 5 Best Gifts for 2010. You could actually think of them as the "Top 5 Best Gifts for Always" too! Without further delay, here are my recommendations, in no particular order:

#1. SLINGBOX


The Slingbox is the coolest dang thing to come along in the past few years...I have one and I'm able to actually watch my TV at home from anywhere. And in case that doesn't impress you, I mean ANYwhere...I watch my Comcast (or Tivo...or DirecTV...or old school rabbit ears) from my freakin' EVO phone! One of my best friends was getting married in the San Diego Botanical Gardens and I was there...watching the University of Arizona play football on my phone! It really was a great wedding and made all that much more special because of my Slingbox.

#2. DIAMOND BRA

If you don't think a Slingbox will please the lady of your life, or perhaps it's a little on the slummy side of gift-giving...how about a Diamond Bra? If you have a few million sitting around and you value lady-lumps, this is the gift for you. There are a few different makes and models out there: the Million Dollar Miracle, the Millenium, and, the "heftiest of the chestiest" model of them all, the $15,000,000 Fantasy Bra and panties set. The choice is yours! Just enjoy your purchase and make sure to post updates and...*ahem*...pics if you go with my well-researched recommendation.

#3. TOASTER STRUDEL

If you're like me and the Diamond Bra is a tad out of your budget, then how about the greatest of all great foods...the Toaster Strudel! Seriously, I don't know of one single person that would be pissed to get such an awesome gift in their stocking. There are countless varieties and sizes so there's a perfect option for everyone on your list. Kim likes apple whereas I'm a berry guy but, let's be honest...once you get that frosting on there, it doesn't matter. Perfect is perfect.

#4. THE GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME

Hey, everyone LOVES music and CD's have historically been the quintessential gift for any and everyone. So here, if you're going for the greatest album of all time, you have your choice of my recommendations: there's Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album...or Mason Douglas' "My Wild Heart". Go with whichever one you don't have and your gift-givee will be the happiest elf Santa's ever seen. Especially if you go with the Mason option...

#5. CAR ANTLERS

And finally, one of the funnest items I've come across are antlers and a big ol' red nose for your car! Seriously, your isn't THAT pretty so why not decorate it up a bit! My Maxima (not pictured) is adorned with these items of awesomeness for the holidays and may continue to be throughout all of 2011. I'm not sure who we have to thank for these badboys but they are hilarious and cool.


So I hope this helps you out a bit. Happy shopping, my friends...click on over to your choice and put your order in! And let me know how it works out for you...especially if it's the bra.

"My Wild Heart" is beating tonight...

I'm a little nervous and in slight disbelief typing these following words...but here goes:

The new album is here!

I'm SO proud to have this released music released to the world - if I do throw out some of my own hubris, you're going to hear some flat-out awesome music. We worked long and hard, putting together a CD full of something for everyone - lots of country, lots of rock, with some soul and sexy. Music to run to, music to kick by the pool with, music to get kinky to...it's all there.

And there are a lot of you who have been hanging with me a long time and been waiting for it. Thank you!! I can't explain how much that means to me. So now, you can go around your town and see if you grab one in your local stores (if you actually have a music store in your town anymore! Your best bet is going to be Borders...) or you can just click on these links. Have Amazon or Best Buy deliver one to your mailbox or let iTunes pop it right into your computer. Click on the album cover above to go to the MasonDouglasMusic.com music page.

OR JUST CLICK HERE TO ORDER


So dare I say it...can you hear it?! "My Wild Heart" is beating tonight!

Mason

P.S. Oh yeah...PLEASE get you one! And all your friends. (And all your family...and pets.)
