A little blog perestroika: I now list shows I've got coming up over on the right there. I've also posted links to articles I recently wrote for Isthmus' Madison Music Project.

Take me out

What is it about the playoffs that can get even confirmed baseball agnostics like me interested? These Boston-New York games have been thrilling. I have developed a crush on Red Sox reliever Bronson Arroyo.
Well I never

I learn from my new alumni magazine that Elvin Bishop, of "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" fame, went to the University of Chicago. Who knew?
At the movies

Yesterday afternoon I finally saw Fahrenheit 9/11 on the big screen. I laughed a lot. I would hate to be the woman who screams "Blame Al Qaida!" at the grieving mother whose son was killed in Iraq. I wonder if that nasty person saw the film.

There are a lot of sad people in Fahrenheit 9/11. After I saw it, I came home and popped in the screener of Wellstone!, a documentary about the late Minnesota senator that's playing at the Orpheum this weekend. There are lot of sad people in that film too.

It was quite a day for lefty documentaries with sad people.
