Hey, look… the missus is famous…

Tomorrow night is the opening of Lisa’s theater company’s first play. You can read all about it here. Cesnik now is putting her own distinctive stamp on the city’s cultural scene, having founded the Rose of Athens Theatre, which will make its debut with “The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged)” in early December […]

If you really want to know what’s actually happening in Iraq

It might help to turn off the US news and watch this. There are Shi’ite death squads roaming the streets of Baghdad and if you want to know how they got there, you should google “Salvador Option Iraq” and see what you discover. Especially this article. What to do about the deepening quagmire of Iraq? […]

It might be time to take another look at that VHS copy of Blazing Saddles

They’re doing the Lord’s work over at the TPM café, keeping up with this stuff… Barack Obama’s efforts to reach out to evanglical Christians in preparation for his possible Presidential campaign is running into very stiff resistance from the Christian right. As the Chicago Tribune reported recently, Obama is set to attend a huge evangelical […]

Try to live with the crappy music

Here is a video of some of the buildings in Benissa, my favorite city where the Low Lows played in Spain. Whoever shot this missed some of the most interesting things about Benissa. Yes, the buildings and the streets were cool, but the people were the best thing about the city. The Saturday market was […]

Blessed are the… something… wait wait… it’ll come to me…

On the heels of TRex’s rant about shockingly unchristian Christians comes this astonishing bit of irony: A subdivision has withdrawn its threat of $25 daily fines against a homeowner who put a Christmas wreath shaped like a peace sign on the front of her home. Homeowner Lisa Jensen told The Associated Press on Monday that […]

How I spent Thanksgiving

Vicky took me to Stonehenge. That’s one big pile of rocks. They still haven’t fixed the damn thing either. No roof at all. See?

Hey, holy cow, it’s been four years

I have been blogging for four years now. I think that the last few weeks of tour blogging have been the most fun for me of all the blogging I have done in the past year or so. I need to do more traveling and writing about it. Since it’s Thanksgiving and I am the […]

These kinds of days

Today was a classic touring day- we drove all day just to get home. We made it to Clermont-Ferrand in France. This is a Michelin town- they make a lot of the tires here. It wasn’t much to look at in the dark. The high point of the day and the low point were just […]

I can’t wait to get back to the US, where the 13 ft. pythons roam… and die trying to eat gators… An unusual clash between a 6-foot (1.8m) alligator and a 13-foot (3.9m) python has left two of the deadliest predators dead in Florida’s swamps. The Burmese python tried to swallow its fearsome rival whole […]
