Fanny Packs vs. Cell Phone Holsters On Belts – I think these are two of the most awful accessories that someone could incorporate into their wardrobe. I think construction workers or contractors can get away with the cell phone holsters, grandmothers can get away with the fanny packs. People who use the cell phone holsters always have their phone in a protective sheath. I can at least understand the utility of a fanny pack, it’s secure, you can’t misplace it like a purse, and it’s small enough where things won’t get lost. The only reason you need a cell phone holster is if you’re trying to be the fastest phone answerer on this side of the Mississippi. If you call someone and they answer before it completes a full ring, they probably rock the holster. Fanny packs are cooler than cell phone holsters.

Wilco – Did you ever just zone out, someone’s talking to you, the TV is on, and all of the sudden you realize you haven’t been paying attention to anything? Or did you ever drive somewhere and about 3/4 of the way there, you’re like, “whoa, how did I get here, I have been driving in a zombie state of mind”? This is what Wilco is like, throw in Yankee Foxtrot Hotel or Ghost is Born and you can stare at the hazy summer sky and confuse it for being deep in thought, but you’re just wrapped up in the melting sounds and distant vocals of Jeff Tweedy. Standout track is not on the CDs I mentioned earlier, but you should hunt down the song “Misunderstood” and make sure you listen to the entire song. “I want to thank you….for NOTHING…..NOTHING…..NOTHING…..NOTHING…..NOTHING…..NOTHING…..NOTHING…(I think he says this about 20 times and there’s authenticity in it, something, someone, burned him badly and it just won’t heal. Great song. Jaclyn and I will play “Nothing” chicken in public places, who can say it louder, the girl always wins because I don’t want the police called on me.
Unfortunately, I just found out that I have to catch a 6:30AM flight to ATL tomorrow morning and I won’t be back until midnight on Friday (hopefully sooner, but we’ll see). I will try to keep the blog rolling along, at the very least, I will continue to slap some more stuff on the Forum ( myforum.rkdeemreport.com – tonight I posted my review of Smokin’ Lil’s in Doylestown).
I am staying at the Embassy Suites in Atlanta, home of the dead fish, hopefully they cleaned it up by now.
One last thing…thanks to everyone who reads this blog. Its nice to know people are checking in, that people read my thoughts and ideas, I love your comments and hope we can keep this up for a long time.
Have a great night!

A video of Wilco playing Misunderstood, it’s missing the first half of the song, the audio can only capture a fraction of everything the song has to offer, but you get the point, you can watch the song accelerate into a wild car crash.
