By the time any of us hear the album, the show iwll probably be sold out.

"I Know What Love Isn't". Out on September 4th

I'm pondering whether to run the Baltimore Marathon, which would necessitate skipping the Jens Lekman show the night before. I did already see Jens with full band at smaller venue for half the price, and no new material since that time.

Alternatively, I could run the Richmond Marathon in November, but maybe that's not a good idea. If I were to require some medical attention, some redneck Virginia ratbastard might mistake me for someone uninsured and get out his shotgun and shoot me dead.

we were incredibly lucky.  we lost power for about 20-30 minutes during the storm, then lost it again for about 20 minutes yeterday (sunday) afternoon.  otherwise the lights have been on.  counting our lucky stars.

34 hours without power. Two people killed within a mile of my house. Unfortunately for you guys, I survived.

My power came on finally this morning after I left for work.  All in all not too bad of a weekend.  Kids were troopers throughout.  Wife was out of town so she was spared.

Lots of houses in my neighborhood damaged severely by huge fallen trees.  We are lucky.  Cant wait to return home to AC.

I was without power for about 18 hours.  Thanks to my hard work and the personal responsibility I took in making a wise decision, I own a generator.  I have been running with power the whole time.  And to think I didn't even need Bammy to pass a law requiring everyone to buy a generator or a program for the gummint to give me a "free" one!

Same for those people in Colorado.  I've got NO pity for those folks that did not buy a fire bubble for their house like my Uncle Frank did.

The Baltimore 1/2 was really fun last year.  I am running the full this year.  It's hilly.

This whole survival of the fitness thing you got going is pretty cool.  So maybe I should just steal your generator.  After all we don't need no laws protecting your property from others.  I might have been wise enough to buy a baseball bat and use it to disable you from preventing me from taking your generator and you have health care coverage so I won't feel too bad about your concussion.   And then I could post on here if you want electricity you should have been resposible enough to buy a baseball bat.

Is there any band where each one of its members wrote hit songs?
other than Queen, I mean.

Freddie - Boho Rhapsody
Brian - We Will Rock You
Roger - Radio Gaga
John - Another One Bites the Dust

I can't think of one, and remember that Ringo didn't really write any hits

"Yellow Submarine" was pretty big. Didn't he write that?


Edit: I guess not.
