Oh, twitch-twitchy fingers, still trembling and stumbling over the keys, 24 hours after spinning out of the Fillmore, poster in hand and blazes in my heart! That's right, my little shit-starters - Wednesday's spilling into Thursday, and I'm still racing to find the words for Tuesday! Tuesday night, Aug. 14, to get right to it. For good reason.

OH SHIT.

Only four more days people. To talk too much about the joke is to ruin the joke, so if you’re not clued in, get your crusty, no-Trapped-havin’ ass down to the nearest video store and buy yourself a copy of Kells’ ruminations on love and infidelity. Read more »

I confess here and now that I know nothing about sailing or sailing races. In fact, the only thing I know is the joke among sportswriters that the way to cover a sailing race is to station yourself at a bar, overlooking the race, and cover the action from there, because there really isn't any action that you can see from the shore.

In fine, self-aggrandizing form PG&E just issued this press release congratulating themselves for having such a great website.

Yeah, yeah, I know, your sister’s in a band too, and she plays at local venues and has Myspace stalkers from Wisconsin, just like mine. But does your badass bass-playing sister have a nationally distributed album coming out on August 21? No? I didn’t think so.
