My Weekend in the Park

Last weekend, I went on a pilgrimage. I didn’t walk barefoot to Vatican City or go on a Hajj. Instead, I got in a car with two other awkward dudes while our far less awkward girlfriends and one of their friends followed in an attempt to reach Hipster Holy Ground, Pitchfork Music Festival.

YouTube is Decadent & Depraved and Also Has Music

Hey! Remember when I used to do this? You don’t? Oh yeah, the bosses say a lot more people come here these days. So, in honor of you new folks, here are a few things I have found; some were easy to locate, some more obscure, but all entertaining unless you don’t like the musicians…

Mudcrutch

Tom Petty started a band, Mudcrutch, in Florida some thirty years ago; they got signed but broke up in the recording studio. Not so long ago, he decided to get them back together and make their debut album. This is from the liner notes: Drums, wires, old friends, etc. Recorded live, drums, vocals, harmony, everything…
