It's still rock 'n roll to me

So I went to the Libertarian planning meeting. Apparently the group I was meeting with is planning some concert at First Avenue to benefit the Libertarian candidate for governer. We went to Keegan's... it was crowded so we went to The Times. It seem their biggest concern was what to call their PAC. They wanted to have an acronym because they're easy to remember. I suggested QWOT. Quixotic waste of time.

I also liked Lay Zay Fair for the concert's name.

Then we went and sang karaoke. It isn't false modesty. I have a really bad voice.

I can't work for a week

I'm going to report, first hand, on inconsequential things going on around the Twin Cities.

Tonight I can report that Figlio's no longer has Jambalya. While most restaurants say something's spicy here in Minnesota, it usually tastes like Heinz 57 as opposed to Ketchup, this restaurant did it right. Apparently there's not much of a market for it.

Tomorrow I will check out a Libertarian planning session.... and hopefully trivia night at Keegan's.

You can't judge a book by its cover

I think it was Jonah Goldberg who once wrote (paraphrasing from memory) that although you can't judge a book by its cover, if you see one with a spaceship, aliens and a woman in a steel bustier, you can make a pretty good guess that it's a sci-fi novel.

Digitial Brownshirt tells us what this particular genius did after being released on bail for car-jacking. Who would have thought?

Words Matter

Spouting off about someone being a "coward and a liar" isn't such a good idea, especially when the guy values his honor, more especially when the guy is Buzz Aldrin. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed seeing someone getting popped in the mouth as much as this.

Thanks to The Officers' Club

Back again

Well, I'm back yet again. I was out of town for a bit, then ill. To further add to the fun, my wife decided to arbitrarily move back into the house after a seven month absence. Just the sort of instability every six-year old needs in his life.

In the meantime I was able to catch The Unit. I'm happy that Dennis Haysbert has been able to take time off from selling insurance to kill bad guys.
