For some reason, I had Zevon’s “Lawyers, Guns and Money” in my head so I poked around YouTube to see what they had. I was not let down. We always hear Warren this time of year (“Werewolves of London” for Halloween) but he really was an incredible songwriter who left us well before his time. Thankfully, Letterman had him on many, many times.

The greatest band of all time is finally coming out with the greatest movie of all time. Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny hits theaters November 22nd and I can’t wait. I’ve been a big fan of the D since their days on HBO. Their album was OK but it’s their bootlegs that are hysterical. The best one I’ve listened to (a few hundred times) is them live at the Largo Pub January 21, 1999. Just amazing. (Un)Fortunately, it is not for the little ones.
They have a website up for the movie now and you really should sit through the first couple of minutes where they intro the website – more comedy genius.

As of a few hours ago, the collaboration between my brother Tim, Kevin Barry and Mike Hogan is now called Easy Wind. We’ll be playing our first show at O Restaurant & Lounge on Saturday at 10pm for a private birthday party (that’s open to the public).
We’ll play our first real show at McGarret’s on Elmwood Nov. 2nd.

What a week it has been. The storm was truly something to witness. I just posted a few pics on Flickr, shown to the right. It’s day 6, still no power in Kenmore – many of the streets around us do as of 6pm tonight. Hopefully tomorrow? We’ve been at my parent’s house for 3 days after 3 days in the cold and dark at home. Thank God they got power when they did.
Jack’s a trooper, Jen’s a rock and grandparents are the best hosts to have.
Some links for you…

Fantastic hosting at Media Temple – think I might make the switch from Godaddy.com for Wnymusic. Double the money but 5 gazillion times the features (SSH!)
Jeremy Enigk has a new album out – World Waits – AMG hates it
Firefox 2.0 RC3 is out. Using it now. The tabs look pretty but built-in spell checking for from textareas is where it’s at
