After a thrilling week that was highlighted by spending five hours in the ER with Rohanna (good news, not her appendix; bad news, possible chronic bowel pain), time for another round of spin the iTunes (over 35K songs and growing)!


1) I'll Be Glad, Bonnie Prince Billy

2) towards the sun, sri aurobindo

3) Coming Right Along, The Posies

4) who knows where you are, The Harpeth Trace

5) i go to sleep [bonus track, unreleased demo], the kinks

6) All I Wanna Do, The Beach Boys

7) Going Down, Lynch Mob

8) White Riot, The Clash (Velodromo Vigorelli, Milan, 05-21-81)

9) Everybody Knows (Leonard Cohen), Concrete Blonde

10) Portia, Throwing Muses


plus


11) The Rockafeller Skank (Mulder's Urban Takeover Mix), Fatboy Slim

12) Invisible Man, The Breeders

13) Nothing (Lifestyle Of A Tortured Artist For Sale), The Dandy Warhols


And off we go. March Madness (fuck you, NCAA™) comes to an end, ideally with the Jayhawks cutting down the nets in Nawlins, just in time for the baseball season to begin. And for those considering attending Chicon 7, this year's World Science Fiction convention, rates go up Sunday, so get that membership soon!

Feetsball!

Got up this morning and went to the dentist, who made some adjustments to my temporary. I have an appointment to see him again Oct. 30 (day before the start of ConTraception) to begin the process of making the permanent toothlike object. He wants my war-torn mouth to have more time to finish healing from the four teeth pulled back in July. After that, I stopped at a nearby Goodwill store, and was shocked to find they were selling most of their shirts and jeans for $6.99 and up. WTF, thrift store? Took the back way home to avoid the construction on I-35, only to discover that Merriam Lane was being re-sealed, so I took an even more circuitous route back home through the wilds of KCK.

But that's not what I came here to talk about. I'm here to talk about fantasy football. Ro and I joined the rest of the team owners at the Satterkleins's residence in Lee's Summit and proceeded to spend four or so hours cursing and ridiculing each other, depending on whether any given person had their heart set on the player just drafted by someone else. Overall, I am reasonably happy with my team, though I'm sure there will be changes over the course of the season.

And now, ladies and ruminants, I present -- Baconcats!

QB Jay Cutler, Denver

QB J.T. O'Sullivan, SF (he's a quarterback! He's a casual dining restaurant!)

QB Chad Pennington, Miami

RB Marshawn Lynch, Buffalo

RB Fred Taylor, Jacksonville (I have owned Fred almost every year he's been in the league. A comfort pick)

WR Santonio Holmes, Pittsburgh

WR Calvin Johnson, Detroit

WR Andre Johnson, Houston (why, yes, I do have two Johnsons)

WR Devin Freakin' Hester, bitchez! Chicago

D/ST Pittsburgh

D/ST Baltimore

And now, onward to Little Big Horn, and glory!

After I took Rohanna home and put her to bed, I ran out took a couple of pictures that I hope to post either here or on Flickr with a link. DO NOT be eating or drinking when you see these pictures. You have been warned.

Watched the second half of the KU-Louisiana Tech game this evening. At one point, La. Tech's fastest receiver broke free on a reverse, and I thought he was gone. Suddenly, the KU safety came out of nowhere and caught him at the two yard line. The defense held, and the La. Tech kicker missed a gimme field goal. Final score, KU 29, La. Tech 0. Rock chalk!

It was the last Final Four played in KC (still he home of the most Fina Fours evar), and the Sunday between the semis and the championship game Dragonet and I went to the Plaza Theatre to see the just-released film "Beetlejuice." There were maybe 20 of us who actually got the movie, we could tell by the scatterd bouts of hilarity at certain secnes, a most of the audience gave a collective "huh?"

On the night of the game, I had a previously-scheduled Avalon Hill tabletop football game scheduled. I told my opponent that if he wanted to play that night, the NCAA final had to be one. Before the game, he asked me if I thought KU had a chance. "If we hold Oklahoma under 80, we will win," I replied. After the 50-50 halftime score, we played on until I stopped the game as the last five minutes played out, and Danny and the Miracles won 83-79.

Tonight, Rohanna and I watched at the residence of Linda Lipp and her lovely daughters. With 2 minutes to go and KU down 9 I began to despair, but the boys in red and blue pulled it out, with Mario Chalmers hiting a three to tie the game with two secnds left and send the game into overtime. Final score, KU 75, Memphis 68. Rock Chalk!!!!!!leventy!!!!!111!!!

. . . this one was about 3˚ Kelvin.

KU 76, Nebraska 39.

My family moved to Lawrence in 1968. They got me the special kid ticked pack for both football and basketball, and I went to all the games I could. In 1968, KU was the Big 8 champ, and went to the Orange Bowl, where they lost 15-14 to Penn State on a penalty for 12 men on the field. They were never Big 8 or, after the merger, Big 12 champs again. Often they were mediocre, and for a decade or so they were horrible (though not as bad as Kansas State at that time). Nebraska, of course, was a national powerhouse, and regularly thrashed the Jayhawks by scores like 70-0, 59-2 and the like. So, yeah, two beatdowns of Nebraska in three years feels pretty good. Next Oklahoma State, and then we can worry about the Border War.

Additionally today, Iowa State, the North Division's doormat, beat K-State. If Oklahoma State beats Texas, the Big 12 will officially be renamed the WTF? Conference.

Rock Chalk!

Tonight, off to see the St. Andrew's Pipe Band and the Elders. Sunday, the Chefs vs. Green Bay and Satan's Football Coach vs. Jesus's BFF (New England vs. Indianapolis, in mundane terms). I, of course, will be cheering for Satan.

Once more, onto the MP3s. . .

1) 0340 Crazy Tonight = Strong Teeth, The Kleptones

2) Start Wearing Purple, Gogol Bordello

3) Walk The Dinosaur, Was (Not Was)

4) Country At War, X

5) The Yip Song, Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians

6) Sympathy For The Devil, Skrew (from "Shut Up Kitty")

7) Charmed, Los Lobos

8) We're Desperate, X

9) I Am Not Your Broom, TMBG

10) Isobel, Björk

and onward:

11) Hidden #1 The Planet Of The Apes, TMBG

12) Rock and Roll, Rasputina

13) Let The Good Times Roll, Harry Nilsson

The KU basketball team began its season last night with an exhibition tuneup against Pittsburg State. I have always liked the KU policy of playing other state universities for these games, as opposed to the traveling tomato cans like Athletes in Action. It gives the schools a nice payday, and the players the opportunity to experience the wonder of playing in Allen Field House. Are the 'Hawks a title contender. Mai oui. Will they make the final four, much less triumph? If I knew that, I'd be laying a series of bets in Vegas instead of typing this.

The fact that the KU football team is 8-0 and #8 in the polls is simply cromulent. I guess having a coach who could eat you for lunch is a good motivator. Surrealsitic reality of the week: Nebraska is the underdog against KU this Saturday. Quel fromage!
