Andrew Bird whistles well...

I was rolling around downtown today when my wife called me. "Andrew Bird is coming to town!" Exciting news as he makes super good music with a variety of cool and weird instruments. I checked his myspace to see if the tour was posted and sure enough; he'll be here on July 21st with Josh Ritter. Andrew's music is haunting and pretty and odd and addictive. The video is an interview done while riding bikes around L.A. The guy points out that Andrew whistles really well (duh, his last name is BIRD!) and he attributes it to creating a "cavity in your mouth". Nice wordplay. Go buy his records and go see him live, you will not be disappointed.P77

R.I.P. in P.B.R.

Since he lives in Chicago, I figured it'd be Old Style. Pabst is a superior swill anyway though. Speaking of the drinky drink: J Lee popped into the pub last nite with two ice cold bottles of Leinenkugels Original. Soooo good, and considering I had two bottles of directly imported Grain Belt last week my Midwestern beer fix is fully satisfied.

Dave is really good about forwarding me terrifying news blurbs from the web, this gem appeared in my inbox today: http://www.fresh99.com/bicycle-lift.htm His take was : Who do they think they are, Americans?! Seriously, how is it that something so stupid/lazy/cool didn't originate here? And Dave, if you don't get some flat pedals for polo soon, you're gonna need the bike lift to transport you home after the match.

Speaking of polo, it's high time we start up the Friday Night Fights don't you say? (I stole the name from A23 and his Oaktown cronies). It's light out late enough, let's git it on.
