roper show

i just got back from the roper show at asu west. it was quite good, though reese had some classic off-key vocals on several songs. i hung out with one of the guitar players, stephen till, for a while both before and after the show. i also talked to reese for a while, which was very cool, especially since i never had that chance when he was in five iron. it was pretty funny to see just how obsessed all the kids there were with reese. the grandest personality cult of out time, i might say. also, he shoved the microphone in my face for the vocals on part of one song, which was a lot of fun. i'm a wreck, i'm too old to go to shows with a bunch of junior high and high school kids, so i think i'll sleep now...or soon...or never...but hopefully soon.

This is just a comment in general...

I clicked on the little link in the upper right hand corner of your blog, the one that says "next blog"--- ha ha ha ha, jumping jebediah... before I knew what was happening I whisked away to a blog entitled "midwestern right wingers"--no joke. Ah, the irony. Two blogs, so close and yet so far. A modern tale of two cities.
