Five for July 18th:
Reunion. Had an awesome time catching up with the 2008-era Columbia crew in Jeff City on Saturday. Props to Rebecca and Nate for inviting the chaos of ten or so infants/toddlers/kids into their home, cooking, and putting everyone up.
Comic relief. While driving home this weekend we were talking about how great it was to have the Honda Odyssey for road trips, and I said "you Odyssey deez nutz" and Lisa didn't laugh for some reason. Maybe she didn’t hear me.
Upcoming shows. Middle Class Fashion and Culture Club at Family Arena, D.R.I. at Ready Room, Dandy Warhols at Delmar Hall, Made Up and Joan of Dark at Foam, Guitar Wolf at Firebird, Swingin’ Utters at Blueberry Hill.
Cool stuff. Homemade popsicles, hitting the pool, new issue of Decibel, vacation starts this week, Hi-Pointe Drive In coming to old Del Taco spot, Frannie and Georgie, Conservative Clown Car on FB, backyard barbecuing, haircut.
Four more months of this shit. In case you had any doubts about the tone this election season is going to take, I just saw in the span of one commercial break an ad where a guy accused his opponent of working for the Taliban and another where the guy's opponent superimposed the first guy over a picture of Chairman Mao.
