Ok so tonight Im stoked cause I get to hang with my PCC boys (minus Jt who is working) We have a show in Iowa City..
Then tommorow is my B-day.. now some of the day I need to spend at a Meeting for daytrotter in the Quad Cities but since its my B-day Ash wanted us to do something like go camping or to a Bed and Breakfast since I dont have to work on Sunday now...

man I never thought I would say this but why is Des moines getting so cool! GOOD CONCERTS are coming here now all the time...
Im super pissed as last night I found out BEN KWELLER was coming on Oct. 12 thats great.. His album "ON OUR WAY" was like the soundtrack to my 2005 solo tour.. GOOD Shit..
So I was stoked to go see him at the VAUDE!

BUT WAIT today I find out RANDY NEWMAN is playing Hoit Sherman in Des Moines that same Night... WTF Des Moines.. get your shit together and have these shows atleast on different nights..

well who do I go see
Randy tickets are pretty pricy but I probably like him a shit ton better but.. Seeing Kweller at the Vaud maybe even running sound would be excellent as well..
oh fuck you be the judge....

happy B-day Nate, Becky, and what a great weekend!

Well this past weekend was fabulous I got to hang with my family in sibley and see our newest member Macy get baptized!
it was a blast we even got to sit next to the priest at dinner so I got to hear all about how he met GENE SIMMONS and I got to tell him that I love the KISS song "God Gave ROCK N ROLL TO YOU" by Kiss cause it was written by Rod Argent of the Zombies!

I also got to give a big shout out to My big bro and big sis!
Nate turned 33 on Sat. and Becky turns 30 today.. man do I long for the days when were growing up and I could beat up them both! Well no need for that I love you guys both very much and hope you had great b-days!

Well I got to give a huge shout out to Shawn Johnson who has one a gold in China! Her 4th Medal of the games.. I got to say there is nothing like sitting on your couch stuffing your face with a vegan pizza and watching ripped athletes compete for the gold.. Which I have totally enjoyed! But I got to give it up for our Iowa Girl! way to go ace!

also super sad WILCO is not opening for Neil Young in Omaha or St. Paul cause I would totally go...
