Blues

Sadly, I am (about to begin) grading a whole lot of papers instead of having a beer at Mo Pitkin's and listening to David Jacobs-Strain, who is ridiculously talented (I saw him a few years ago at a summer festival - and it turns out my brother goes to college with him). It seems that I have to add "young musical stand-out" to my list of careers that I no longer have any shot at, with "Olympic gymnast," "star figure-skater," and "young literary stand-out"... but I'm glad someone else is doing it. By the way, you can listen to Ocean or a Teardrop and Stuck on the Way Back at NorthernBlues Radio (along with a bunch of other great stuff) but he is better live, which is why I have the took-my-work-home-blues.

C'mon, if you pop out a book in the next three years, you can still TOTALLY be the 'young literary stand-out'.
Shall I challange you?

I can't offer you a pint of beer to lift your spirits, but we did add you to our blogroll.

Hmmm...not really the same thing, is it?

Well, Happy St. Patrick's Day.

So that's where David got to. We use to enjoy him here at the Eugene Celebration.
