I saw the Dave Rawlings Machine last night. Look them up. They're great. And check out who plays the mandolin for that band . . . John Paul Jones. Yes, THAT John Paul Jones. Pretty cool. Apparently it was my summer to see rock and roll legends in Missoula.

Anyway.

  • A game happened yesterday between the Stars and Blues. It didn't count. But results happened, even if the game wasn't televised or available via web stream outside of Texas. (By the way, even though I was at a concert while this game happened . . . fuck you for that, Stars. That's a dick move.) Our GDT, though, had our first troll of the season! Be sure to tell him to go fuck himself. [SLGT]
