What Have I Done?

If it’s Friday, it’s the Clash.


I’ve been running Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday…..


Science Fiction Double Feature

Went for a run this morning and this came up on shuffle.  Ladies and gentlemen, the best goddam cover band ever.

I grow old… I grow old…

I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

So I went across the street to get a sandwich from Potbelly’s, and the overly friendly behind-the-counter guy is peppering me with questions about whether I have big plans for Halloween weekend.  No, no, I don’t, I say several times.  He keeps offering me alternatives, you’re not going to X?  Or Y?  Or Z?  Finally, I say “No I’m not, but I am going to see the Damned tonight.”

Sound of screeching brakes, or crickets, as you prefer.

“The Damned?”  he says…”The Damned…?”  Uh, yes, the Damned, I say.  British Goth-Punk band?  Nevermind.  I’ll be hauling out my walker and hearing aid for the show.

Here’s a picture of Pinch, taken at the 2007 Punk Rock Bowling tournament in Vegas:



Dear Chicago

I just got the new Ryan Adams LP in the mail the other day.  I like it, particularly the title track, Ashes & Fire, and the first single released, Lucky You.  It isn’t my favorite, though.  I feel like his voice sounds a little different, less pure maybe?  I wonder if it has something to do with his ear condition.

Anyway, this is the Ryan Adams song I can never get enough of.

Hell yeah, Naked Raygun

Just what I needed to get my morning started.

Or this one.
