screw you mediaone

April 13, 2000

It’s getting hard to find the time to update this page (and others on the site). BIG NEWS! Check out the latest on BabyWatch2000.

Oh yeah, the neighbor’s fence is still broken.

Spent most of the day doing our taxes in all the various ways – married filing jointly, filing seperately, filing with me as deceased, etc… It appears to have been worth it. I found a combination that is significantly less than I had earlier thought (probably screwed something up – oh well). That being said DSS may happen. Now I get to figure out *what* system to get. Anything to get rid of the horrendously overpriced cable. SCREW YOU MEDIA ONE!

gary louris is a moron

Loud Family was awesome at the 400 Bar last night. All of the beautiful people in Minneapolis Rock and Roll were there before hand for a birthday party for an ex of Ang. Gary Louris (Jayhawks, Golden Smog), Kraig (Run Westy Run, Jayhawks, Golden Smog) and Kurt Johnson (Run Westy Run), Dan Murphy (Soul Asylum, Golden Smog), and Mark Perlman (Jayhawks) all hanging out, too stupid to stay to see Scott and Loud Family. Idiots. Morons.

In the past year I’ve gotten to see Tom Waits, Alex Chilton and the current version of Big Star (BTW, Kruddler is opening for Alex Chilton at Taste of Minnesota over the Fourth of July), Kids in the Hall, Fatboy Slim, and now Scott Miller. It’s been a good year. Brings back memories of 1989-90 – Pixies, Janes Addiction, The first Lalapalooza, Smashing Pumpkins first show ever at 7th Street Entry, etc…

Saw “American Beauty” tonight – finally, at the Grandview. Kevin Spacey proved himself again. Excellent film at an excellent theatre. Robert, we need to get the video cameras out.
