Whale fluke

Another reason to love Carrie Brownstein

I decided at some point that the member of Sleater-Kinney I liked the best, that I got the best "vibe" from, was Carrie Brownstein, on guitar and some of the vocals. (She also seemed safest to lust after appreciate: guitarist and lead singer Corin Tucker is already married and a mother, and drummer Janet Weiss kind of reminds me of my sister-in-law.)

Then Carrie Brownstein said this at last weekend's farewell-for-now concert:

Did you know the U.S. Open is being held in town this weekend? For real. The U.S. Open of Footbag. For those of you not "in the know" (*makes the quote-mark finger gesture*), "Footbag" is hackey sack. You wanna know where I'll be a year from now? Look for me there.
I like finding more reasons to like her.

Hot damn!

Poking around Rick Emerson's web page led me to his radio station's webpage, and a note that Don & Mike are actually back on in Portland, on a delayed broadcast from 7 to 11 p.m.

All four hours of the show! Yes! Max 910 (the last station to have D&M in PDX, now back to being KISN AM) always cut off the last hour of The Don & Mike Show so it could play Tom Leykis (who I heard a fellow non-fan like me call by the nickname Collapse )). I've listened to Don & Mike on and off since 1985 and Don on his own since late '84; I have history with these guys.

I have a radio appointment Monday night at 7.
