Memorial Weekend Random Ten
It’s Memorial Day weekend which can only mean that the lovely and talented Mrs. Tbogg and the equally lovely and talented Casey are gone for the weekend to a soccer tournament in Cerritos (or as I call it: Northern California) while I stay home home with the boys (that would be the puffy and gentle Satchmo and the wiry and destructive Beckham). While a weekend to my own devices should include scantily-clad supermodels and naked karaoke, it usually means going commando and watching baseball and puttering about which is what guys my advanced age do. Looking at the local “scene” such as it is, I see that …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead is playing tomorrow night, a mere five minutes away. But since I’m going to see NIN on Monday night, I would be risking exposing myself to more weekend excess than is recommended by the FDA for people in my demographic. So, we’ll just leave that option up in the air.
“Spanish Moon” – Little Feat (live)
“Sands of Nevada” – Mark Knopfler
“Strung Out Again” – Elliott Smith
“Daddys Little Defect” – Sugarcult
“Lounger” – Dogs Die In Hot Cars

Hmm. Not too bad, if I do say so myself.
