That's me and Hanyo, bored on the flight back from California. I'm starting to miss my two hours, ninety minutes is a little restricting, but I could have worse problems than that. I do, in fact, have worse problems, but there's no point bitching about them here.

OK, alright. Been to San Deigo, Oneonta, running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Chris Meyer took my pic with old pal Mark Gamsjager of the Lustre Kings. Had a nice gig in Scotia. I've been largely ignoring radio. Missed a show, then had the sublime Maurice Peterson singing karaoke a couple weeks ago, and played random vinyl from behind the board (ever heard the Righteous Brothers version of "I Just Want To Make Love To You"? No?) then last week Jeanne had Aztec Two-Step in.
Then I played some random stuff for a half hour. I don't remember what it was. I'm thinking this week everything will begin to return to normal. Maybe. Looking back, I see my last regular show, where I just played music, was July 6th.
