I dread going to family reunions, yet every time I attend one I’m glad I did. I have a pretty cool extended family. Everyone is funny and nice and we all get along famously. I’m not sure why I don’t look forward to going, but I sure enjoy looking back on having gone.
Fargo is a darn nice outliner and Dave wants it to hook into everything. I’m a fan of that idea so I’m taking another look.

I normally love concept albums, and onne in which Alice Cooper sings about life in an asylum sounds like a great idea. It ends up being interesting, if mediocre. I love the line “I just can’t get these damn wrists to bleed” but then there’s Nurse Rozetta:
Nurse Rozetta I won’t let her
Catch me peering down her sweater
Fantasizing silk suspenders on her thighs
Nurse Rozetta make me better
Secretly my eyes undress her
Let me feel your tongue depressor
I was 14 when “From the Inside” was released and it would’ve been pretty cool then I suppose.
I really don’t have much use for America these days.
It’s good to stay healthy, right? But what should we eat and what should we avoid? There are so many conflicting reports and unknowns that it’s difficult to know what’s actually harmful. However, it’s silly to assume that anything modern or “man-made” is automatically poison. Plus, cookies are delicious.
Plastic-Free by Beth Terry is full of information and ideas on how to use less plastic. I try to avoid plastic as much as possible, and I plan to use a few of her ideas. Every little bit helps, no?
Accept’s second album, 1980’s “I’m a Rebel”, is not one of their better records. I never really clicked with Accept and I’m not sure why. I think at the time I considered them AC/DC wannabes and sort of dismissed them. Going back over it again is fun, though.
