10/31/08: Happy Halloween, everyone! My costume this year was supposed to be kind of cute, but as usual, it turned out to be kind of creepy. Click here for pictures.

10/26/08: Recent e-mail exchange with my brother:

Hey, can you do me a big favor? Evanier says today that The World's Greatest Sinner is being shown on TCM early tomorrow morning. Would you be able record it for me? I've been curious about this film for years, because Zappa wrote the soundtrack, but the only time I've seen it for sale was from some shady public domain vendor. It looks like it's on at 1am for about 80 minutes.

And since you're already setting up the Tivo, they're showing 200 Motels at 2:45, and I wouldn't mind having a DVD of that, because all I have is a crappy nth-generation tape, and the Zappa Family Trust has never gotten around to putting that out on DVD!

No problem! I've got plenty of space on the Tivo, and there's no Bears game to record this weekend. ;)

Wow.

Dude, some people should not be allowed to play with cameras. And I'm talking about BOTH of these movies!

10/24/08: Sorry, but I've been really busy lately, keeping an eye on the upcoming election. You did register to vote, didn't you? And you do plan to vote on November 4th, don't you? Remember, your guy needs your vote, regardless of which guy is your guy. (Of course, it would be best if your guy was my guy, but either way, don't forget to vote!) I'm going to try to catch up in the next couple days on some stuff I've been meaning to post, so check back.

     Last week, Stephie took me to the Park West to see Alejandro Escovedo and the Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra, with tickets she gave me for my birthday. We first both of them (without full band) a couple years ago at Fitzgerald's at a benefit with Poi Dog Pondering. Man, I wish I had a tape of that show. For that night, the bulk of Escovedo's set was just him on guitar and the fabulous Susan Voelz on violin, and they blew us away! I'd seen her play with PDP several times, but the two together just clicked. And last week, Escovedo had his full band along (including the talented Ms. Voelz) and they were really terrific. I've only been to the Park West twice, and that was nearly 25 years ago (Uriah Heep and Marillion, not on the same night), but I really liked the place. I wouldn't mind going back if they had someone I liked.

     But where I'm pretty sure we will be going back is Stanley's Kitchen & Tap, about a block away from the Park West. Stephie was a little reluctant to go in, and was even more reluctant when we saw the front of the place was a dimly-lit bar, but the hostess took us in the back to a well-lit, well-decorated dining area that made me feel like we were in someone's kitchen. And the food was fantastic! Stephie had lake perch that was so light and fluffy it seemed almost creamy, with a side order of mac-and-cheese that she initially said was better than hers! I had chicken-fried steak and mashed potatoes, and it might have been the best I've ever had. And the price was reasonable, especially for the area. We've got to figure out what else to do in that neighborhood so we can go back and eat there!

10/06/08:

If you live in Illinois, you only have until the end of the day Tuesday, October 7 to register to vote, so don't delay. As Craig Ferguson says in the clip that should be embedded here, "If you don't vote, you're a moron".

     On a lighter note, here's another Craig Ferguson clip where he takes the media to task for the way the election campaign is being covered. Funny stuff, and more than a little bit true.
