Oh sure I am alone in the strictest sense of the phrase, but yesterday I realized that I am not really alone. While reading Michael Ruhlman’s blog, he being one of the judges on The Next Iron Chef competition, I saw a handful of people like me who want to travel to Cleveland solely to eat at Michael Symon’s restaurant Lola. Like me many were swayed by the episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations where he met up with Ruhlman in Cleveland and they ate at Lola, as well as the food that Symon has created on The Next Iron Chef challenge. Have no idea what the hell I just said? Then you are not like me in regards to food.

Pretty frightening, no? It’s guaranteed to scare away women in whom you have interest.
Anm Additional “Aw Shit”
I felt pretty lousy yesterday. When I arrived at the doctor’s office to give my blood sample I realized that I had left my wallet at home. So much for eating breakfast at Java Jive. Rats!
When I returned home I decided that I was too ill to go to work so I called in sick. I pretty much spent the rest of the day on the couch (my back pain reflects this today).
After starting a second load of laundry and getting comfortable to watch a little evening Monday Night Football I decided to log on to Pollstar to see what shows are coming to town. Much to my dismay I realized that She Wants Revenge was playing at The Loft last night — and even worse, I remembered that I had purchased a ticket. I literally said “Aw shit!” aloud. There was no way in hell that I could have gone to the show.
Does She Like Pornography?
Another reason for sacrificing last night’s She Wants Revenge show was so that I could be ready for tonight’s The New Pornographers’ show at Variety Playhouse.
CD Pick Of The Week
You want me to pick the new Brittney Spears disc. I know that you do… Sorry kids, wrong blog for that.
Instead I am going a bit old-school/off-beat and recommending David Byrne’s “The Knee Plays”. Best know for his work with the Talking Heads Byrne has been putting out solo work and fighting the record authorities work then. From what I have heard from “The Knee Plays” this disc will definitely not be for everyone. However, I have bizarre tastes in music (among other things) so I will be giving it the nod this week.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
