january twenty-eighth

Five for January 28th:

The Grammys. Hearing bits and pieces about the Grammy award nominees and winners illustrates very clearly just how out of touch I am with what’s going on in popular music. I don’t view this as a bad thing.

STL resurgence. Despite being very obviously directed at a certain aging, curmudgeonly STL Today columnist, this is a piece that even someone without knowledge of that whole back-and-forth can enjoy. Bottom line: it’s happening, and the kids are alright.

The Onion. I remember the days when the Onion’s website got updated once a week. Flash forward 14 years or so, and it’s multiple times a day. They slayed me with a few posts yesterday- namely this, this, and this.

Cool stuff. English Breakfast tea, Johnny Rad Facebook page, ripper en route, my cold is all but gone, nightly dance parties with Jane, BTTF2 hoverboard shop deck.

Tuesday tuneage. Red Kross, Black Sabbath, the Strokes, Fleetwood Mac, Beastie Boys, Obits, Cerebral Ballzy, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
