Day 1

No "quitting smoking" or fitness bullshit today (except for title above). Here's the latest:

  • Damn! I don't think I'll make it to tomorrow's Kings of Leon, The Secret Machines, The Shout Out Louds gig @ First Avenue. I probably won't be attendance because: a) the show appears to be sold out; b) the show starts @ 6pm, doors @ 5pm... fucking all-ages gigs...; c) Can't mention that one due to the constraints I put on myself in the first sentence of this post. Luckily band-mate Anglophiliac will represent myself and the blog at the gig! Hopefully he'll be so kind to grace us with a picture and perhaps even a brief review of the event. I think we'd all be very grateful...
  • Hopefully instead I'll try to make it to the Teenage Fanclub, The Rosebuds show @ First Avenue on Friday.
  • Which local musician may be crazier than ex-localite Har Mar Superstar (who resides in England now)? I tell you who (and it's not me by the way). Mark Mallman! This guy already holds the record for longest rock song every written and performed live, 52.4 hours! Check out his website for more details and other crazy stuff. Now he's at it again... As he's played in Minneapolis/St. Paul for 7 years now, he's doing 7 live shows in a row @ The Hexagon starting last Sunday, 7/24/05, through Saturday, 7/30/05. HowWasTheShow's blog is doing live coverage of the full event.
  • I'm adding My Old Kentucky Blog to my links on the right. Amazing site! His Lollapalooza 2005 coverage is absolutely brilliant, perhaps the best live-music posts I've seen on a blog... Plus you can download new mp3's (BRMC is on there right now) and a lot of other good stuff (check out the "Hear Dat" section for example)... I highly recommend it!
  • DJ Jake Rudh in his weekly email has retrocrush as his website of the week. Kinda' cool, almost as good as PubToilets! Best part is NameThatAlbumCover (which is pretty hard actually) and the very vast Babe Gallery (don't worry it's tasteful). I haven't mentioned this in a little while... I should be the one who is married to Jennifer Connelly!
  • Check out Stereogum for the latest tune by Supergrass and some interesting sex-videotape rumors on Lindsay, among so many other things...
  • Forbes rates the best cities for singles... Minneapolis/St. Paul comes in @ 13 out of 40, click here for the full list. Why is it I still can't find any decent action around here???... Must have something to do with that lucky/unlucky #13 ranking... that's my excuse anyways (among so many other things)...

That's it for tonight... I've got a big day tomorrow, therefore I'm out, right about now...

P.S. Yeah, I messed around with some HTML on this site tonight...

Congrats on making it through the first 9 hours of day 1! (or at least I hope you've made it that far)...
Encouragement is overrated. You need people to say you can't do it, so you can prove us wrong.

Thanks man! Yep, still "clean" so far...

Dodge said...

Thanks for the link and the love. You really should try to see that show even if it's all ages and sold out and all. All 3 of those bands will be worth it...

Thanks for checking out MOKB!

Dodge said...

Oh yeah, 3 of the ladies pictured in the Lolla post that went with The Lovely Wife and I are Minny girls - all single!

Dodge,

No, thank you for your most excellent site! I'll keep sending you some love in the future...

As for the single MN ladies situation... very cool! Feel free to refer them to my site... if they'd want to check out a show sometime or something they should let me know... they must be pretty cool if they went to Lolla this year...

Still pondering the whole Kings of Leon, Secret Machines, Shout out Louds situation...

Doesn't look like you're going to Austin City Limits, right? I think one of your comments read "you should go, as you could give 3 days of reviews". I agree...

Thanks for the nice comment(s)! Rock on! (from a fellow mid-westener)...

So, are you still alive? It's the end of day one...at least on the east coast. Day 2 will be easier! Yeah, kings of Leon are great live I must say. Too bad you missed the show...but then again so did I. :( Hopefully you did Yoga instead...I watched something on the Mormons in Arizona...damn that's some crazy shite (just my opinion) but I think religious extremism is crazy shite so I guess it doesn't take much for me to get riled up. How did I get on this subject? Time for bed I think. :)

Queenvick,

Your comment contains way too much stuff for me to reply to. Hit the rack...

Yeah, I'm still alive! You hear the Bee Gees singing in the backround?
