Big ones

It's the Olympics, which means that it's time once again to contemplate my favorite bit of unlicensed Olympics merchandise. Faithful Back With Interest readers will recall that two years ago, I used it to have some fun at the expense of controversial American gymnast Paul Hamm.
World's Greatest Lovers show cancelled

Yes, friends, tonight's World's Greatest Lovers show at the Shamrock has been cancelled, thanks to a very nasty snowstorm. So enjoy your night off!

Just want your extra time, and your kiss

I promise this is the last I'll say, maybe, about the kissing contest that excluded gays, then didn't. But on, I wrote a little something about the unpleasant affair.

Worlds collide. Actually, Reverend Horton Heat has already plowed this ground, if you'll pardon the expression.

Mark your calendars: This Thursday, Feb. 16, my country band the World's Greatest Lovers will again perform at the Shamrock, downtown Madison's only gay Irish bar (or Irish gay bar, if you prefer). Showtime is 10 pm, and there is no cover. The Shamrock is at 117 W. Main St.

Turn the page

I'm re-reading The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, a 1954 work of juvenile science fiction that I loved a lot when I was a juvenile. This after I read the first 50 pages of Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, then stopped. I'm going to get back to that someday, though I do think it could benefit from some charts or something, maybe a free CD.
