Meta-Moment: Memphis, Mekons, Mott

So, yeah: for those of you who don't read the Cheap Trick segments, Rhea and I are flying to Memphis for five days for a wedding tomorrow.  I've never been there before, so it should be a good time: got the Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash loaded on my iPod, got my pre-flight nerves at a steady, cool minimum, and the laundry's nearly done.

I'd like to try to post at least once from Memphis, but I'm not entirely sure what time or access will be like.  Don't be too disappointed if there's nothing new here until next Monday, but do take a quick peek in once or twice later in the week - you never know...

The Mekons were brilliant as ever on Saturday night.  It's a crying shame that so little of the world understands what an absolute treasure those folks are.  For those of you with a dimeadozen.org account, there's a nice sounding recording of the show seeding over there right now.  Highly recommended.

As always, thank you for reading.



Fun fact: the turntable shown in this video is the exact same model I own and use.  It's true!
