So the title is automatic? Damn, I thought I was bestowed a secret name because of my extra witty posts or simply because I own a Kenny Rogers brand snap-up shirt. Either way, I still celebrated last night. Damn Founder's beer is rocking my skull right now.

Yeah, Brian Vanderark was the guy I was thinking of. So damn obnoxious!! I actually just heard the Mustard Plug story the other day, though. Too funny!

You know, now that I think about it I haven't heard anything from Whirlwind Heat in about six months. I'll ask around town to see what they're up to. Which EP was it that you picked up?

I have the Photograph 45 that was released on Italy records that's produced by Jack White and it's great!

The Italy Records ep is the one that I have, too.

I just did a little research on Whirlwind Heat and found that, yes, they are still alive and well. About to embark on a European tour (opening for the White Stripes). Good for them! Now if we could only get them to play a few shows in the Midwest . . .

No kidding, the guy that used to make my coffee is touring Europe now! That's great.

I knew them when . . .

Madness also has that great track on the Rushmore soundtrack. Has anyone heard any of their other stuff? Are they on Nuggets #2?

Prop, forgive me for asking, but WHY IN THE HELL WOULD YOU PAY TO SEE RYAN ADAMS IN THE FIRST PLACE?

Uh oh. If this is going to become an anti-Ryan Adams thread, things could get ugly...

LOL! I guess it's for the same reason reason I bought a ticket for The Verve Pipe. Everyone has their guilty pleasures.

and honestly, Brian Vander Ark is a really nice guy....but then again, I AM a gurl...

My aversion to The Verve Pipe's music doesn't extend to Brian personally; I've heard he's quite nice (from guys, even!). But like Gillian Anderson and Maynard James Keenan, he's someone most people in GR hear about with disturbing frequency.

Did you buy the ticket through Ticketmaster?

Scotty5000, it was a big fuck up. I was so jacked up when I thought I saw Bryan Adams tickets that I just bought them a.s.a.p.

Now I'm stuck with two tickets for some dude I've never even heard of who I guarantee won't satisfy my animal-like craving to hear Summer of '69!
