Meet the Mets - 1962 Opening Day

What you should be listening to: Frank Fairfield

Frank Fairfield is playing Amensia on Sunday around 9ish. According to Frank's website aka Myspace (really, that is olde-timey as fuck) Pokey LaFarge is playing there too but are not listed on the Amnesia's calendar. Goddam good show. I get the feeling that these fellas are going to be playing bigger and bigger venues so come see them before you are sitting a hundred miles away at Hardly Strictly.
I saw Frank play only one song at the Hemlock and he sold me. Fact is I sat the bar trying to convince a woman I loved that I was in love with her. Note: If you have to convince someone that you are in love with them you should probably skip the conversation and just catch Frank's set. There will be less regrets that way.
Well, the girl is gone and unlikely to come back but lets not be sad about fare thee wells now Frank is here again.

Uncle Tupelo

If you do not know this band you should. If you do know this band then you probably spend some drunken nights alone listening to Anondyne wishing that some how, some way, these fuckers would reunite- just one more time. Well, that ain't gonna happen. So until we all die and are reunited in the by and by with the great band in the sky...

found photos

My phone is not smart and I rather like it that way. It is a stupid phone that will do only the simple tasks I give it. Sometimes when the power of whiskey and beer has made me angry or lonely or just weird I wish my phone was smarter than I am. But it isn't.

One thing my phone does is take photos that I forget about.
