  • A-Trak @ The Complex SLC

    First post in almost two years to this blog.  I’m trying turn over a new leaf.  Post more stuff here and just crosspost it to the other places I frequent.  Enough about that… let’s get on with it. Went see A-Trak last Tuesday at The Complex.  What is it with venues in Salt Lake City […]

  • And the Lord Said, “Let The Sun Wash Down on Pitchfork.”

    Sunday at Pitchfork was largely more of the same.  Main difference is that by this point Gus and I were dead tired.  We woke up late, ate late, left late.  Gus had wanted to see Mahjong, but our generally lack of punctuality on Sunday meant that we arrived at Union Park just after Mahjong finished […]

  • It was a wet and rainy day at Pitchfork

    Originally published at Kickin’ the new Kuh-nowledge. You can comment here or there. Saturday at Pitchfork would prove to be a sad day for people without umbrellas and galoshes.  That there…  that’s what they call foreshadowing in the business.  Gus and I ate a fine breakfast at the Longwell House.  Neil makes some great food […]

  • My Friday at Pitchfork

    Originally published at Kickin’ the new Kuh-nowledge. You can comment here or there. I’ll do this in three installments.  This first one is for Friday. I was late meeting Gus, but we finally got together.  Gus had flown in from LA where he was attending the E3 conference.  We made our way to Longwell Hall, […]

  • Insert Pithy Title Combining Pitchfork and Thailand HERE…

    A couple of things… First, today is my birthday… and my present to myself is the Pitchfork Music Festival which happens this weekend.  Gus is coming down from Minneapolis.  We’re manly men, staying at a bed and breakfast.  That’s right.  If you don’t start something, there won’t be something.  Expect a report on this next […]

  • File Under: It Was Bound to Happen

    Looks like today the honeymoon is over.  The Metra train from Lombard to Chicago was over an hour late.  In a moment of wisdom, Metra decided not to charge the angry, waiting riders.  Still…  that’s a lot of time to waste at a train stop.  Can someone say suck. The worst part is that I […]

  • No Country For Old Men…

    If you’re sitting on the fence about No Country For Old Men, it’s time to jump off.  Go see this movie.  Today. And when you’re done watching it, send me a message or give me a call.  I want to know what you think. Fair warning…  the movie is about death.  If you don’t like […]

  • Liz is in Orlando

    Liz is in Orlando… so all you Orlando peeps should try and hang out.  She’ll be there for a week or so.  I miss her already.  🙁 I’ll be down for a visit sometime this winter though… with Liz.  See you then.  (I’m personally looking forward to visiting my sis in Jax).  🙂 In other […]

  • NYC: Poem in Your Pocket Day

    April 30th is Keep a Poem in Your Pocket Day in New York City. The idea comes from the poem by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers. It’s a simple poem with a grand idea. I suppose there really is no requirement that one live in NYC to honor the day. Keep a poem in your pocket […]
