Just a reminder: Peter Frampton watches you when you're sleeping, and he wants to take your love.

I'm in Phoenix. The lovely girlfriend and I took in a Diamondbacks game this evening. They lost by nine runs to the Kansas City Royals, so you can tell that was a real whopper of a contest. But we had a great time, and after the game we were lucky enough to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers in concert. You'll hear younger bands, hipper bands, edgier bands in your life, but I don't think you'll see a better live rock show than these guys. Clyne was in the Refreshments back in the 90s and you've heard their hits even if you can't name 'em (he's probably the only alternative rocker to name-check Jean-Luc Picard in a hit single). If they come to your town you will enjoy seeing them perform.

I'll be down here until late in the month, when I will no longer be down here. Beyond that it's as much a mystery to me as it is to you, dear reader.

Current events commentary: I am sorry Tim Russert died, because I quite liked him. I am doubly sorry R. Kelly was acquitted. I am also sorry John McCain's adult-baby lifestyle has not yet been revealed to the public. That last one's just between us. "Senator Woogums", she calls him. It ain't right.

I am looking forward to wildly misinterpreting Sunday night's all-new episode of Venture Bros.

Now here's a video to brighten your Sunday. You have probably already seen it as you are cooler than me. Enjoy.

Peter Frampton is also in you. He is like the creepy Santa.

The Refreshements were WICKED awesome. I love their records, particularly the first one, but "The Bottle & Fresh Horses" was pretty good too. I've got one of the Peacemakers records, and it was pretty good, but not quite as good as the Refreshments stuff, but perhaps I just got a so-so record. IIRC, it was something like "Sonoran Days & Nights"?

I am surprised on the R. Kelly thing too. I guess Riley from the Boondocks was right; who wouldn't want to be pissed on by R. Kelly.

that cartoon was on mefi a few days ago. it marked the second time in a month that someone made a front page post involving shat's version of "common people". this prompted forest to ask me, "what song would you want shatner to cover?" without a even a moment's hesitation, i answered "sugar daddy" from hedwig -- a suggestion made ever more worthwhile by the boyfriend's facial expression when contemplating this.

the refreshments performed a sparsely-attended in-store at the record store where i worked in high school. from what i can remember, they were sweethearts.

please do not get me started on the r. kelly thing. you'll be here all night, srsly. it also drives me nuts that russert died and bill o'reilly still walks the earth. too much bad news this weekend.

Here's to hoping Sen. McCain needs changing during at least one of the debates...
