Do Not Make Hulk Angry.

Ashcroft reducing plea bargaining discretion. I’ve said it before. I have the feeling that I’ll say it again. John Ashcroft is an evil S.O.B. I do believe that I hate him. Are you registered to vote? If not…WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!!

We Don’t Need No Water, Let the Motherf*ckr Burn

Yeah, it’s already been noted over at Gaper’s Block, but it bears noting here, too. Just because we’re amused by it. September 19th: CRISPY TITS: We Dunt Burnt the Trailer Down Come one, come all to CRISPY TITS: Mama dun fel asleep wit’ a lit ciggy agin! When: Friday, Sept. 19th from 9pm until the […]

now later on as the crowd thinned out

Our first experience at a Flash Mob. Chicago hasn’t quite gotten it right yet—but hopefully the word will get out and at double or triple the ‘mob’ which assembled today at 12:32pm at the Picasso Statue at the Daley Center. We dutifully arrived by 12:20pm at The Statue of the Beast at The Thompson Center. […]

So This Is Freedom

With Bouquet and a Wave, Boudin Is Free 22 Years Later Apparently, Kathy Boudin was released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility yesterday after serving 22 years for her involvement in an armored car robbery (during which two police officers (Sgt. Edward O’Grady and Officer Waverly Brown) and a Brinks security guard (Peter Paige) were killed […]

I Want to Sing that Rock and Roll

Well, maybe not quite Rock and Roll…Alt Country or No Depression is more fitting…but anyway, the concert tonight at The Vic with Gillian Welch (which is, collectively, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings—they’ve always been the act together, but publicize under just her name) was, once again, incredible. For being an LA girl, she sure has […]

Now I Lay Me Down Not to Sleep

According to this article, the position in which you sleep reveals something about what kind of person you are. It’s just good to see that scientists are focusing on life’s important questions… So, how are *you* sleeping these days? [Barenaked Ladies lyrics=1]

And I still miss someone

I was a bit scared yesterday when I read the report of Johnny Cash’s funeral and DID NOT see where Sheryl Crow was in attendance. Luckily, I felt compelled to reread the article today and it had been updated with the paragraph: Emmylou Harris and Sheryl Crow performed two songs, “The Old Rugged Cross” and […]

Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

OK. Back now from Saint Paul – horrible work thing over. Over! Big smiles all around – even though I’ve been working my way to an ulcer for the past month, even though I got absolutely no help or support from my office, even though the thing I had to do is something I’ve been […]

At the end of the journey, when our last song is sung, Will You meet me in Heaven someday?

I can feel some comfort in this news knowing that Johnny and June are together—where they’d both want to be. I can only imagine how empty these last few months have been for Johnny—on top of the physical pain he was experiencing. Remembering Rosanne, Tara, Cindy, Kathy, Rosie, Carlene, and especially John Carter Cash today. […]
