Perfect for the Employee Fridge

The good news is that I don't need this where I work but maybe you're not so lucky. Also good for lousy roommates.

No Post; just like the look of this graphic

Drummers of the World, you are not alone

Not alone in the sense that you're easily replaced by a machine. Look who's next:

Crazy J (From Georgia Tech's Robotics lab)

So we get Crazy J and P.E.A.R.T. together and we've got a robotic tribute to the Flat Duo Jets!

(What's that? Oh, you thought I'd say The White Stripes? Yeah, well that's too easy, isn't it? ...And I don't dig that new stuff the kids listen to.)

Big Star Bio

Over the Fourth of July holiday I had the chance to ride back alone from Ludington on the SS Badger. The four hour ride allowed me to finish a great biography of the band, Big Star:

Big Star : The Short Life, Painful Death, and Unexpected Resurrection of the Kings of Power Pop
The most revealing fact I learned was that Big Star played 5 NIGHTS in Lansing during their 1975 tour, which, for the most part, had very few dates at all. Who got to see these shows? Evidently, there's a write-up in the State News that's very positive. Next time I'm in Lansing, I'm going to try and find it in the MSU archives.
