Well, I can finally enjoy the comforts of high-speed internet in the privacy of my apartment. So far the “high speed” part is not quite living up to it’s name, but I guess it’s better than nothing. I also had my table and chairs delivered today (though I was told my a co-worker that they really are not necessary for single guys besides being another spot to stack things up on). So the apartment is starting to look more lived in, which is good because it was starting to look rather deserted.
– Thanks to Will for the head’s up on my favorite comedian David Cross’ hilarious “Open Letter to Larry the Cable Guy“. Apparently Cross has found himself in a feud with the multi-millionaire, not-really-from-the-south, imitation “redneck” comedian, and responds to the remarks that Larry found necessary to include in his new book, “Git-R-Done”. I don’t know what makes me cringe worse, watching that guy’s act or knowing that there are millions of people out there enjoying it.
– I am somewhat sad to hear that The Odeon concert club located in the Flats in Cleveland is slated to close on March 1st. While it has been a while since I have been to a good show there, I have many fond memories from my teen years going to dozens of shows there from Soul Coughing to Death Cab For Cutie, Ben Folds Five to Sonic Youth, and many many more. While the Flats have been slowly dying over the past few years, it sounds like the year-old House of Blues was the final nail in the Odeon’s coffin. Now that the East Bank of the Flats is almost deserted. I wonder how long it will be before the West Bank goes dark once again.
