I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this car whilst on my way to the free concert on the Bidwell Parkway. I’m not sure whether this guy’s a hilarious badass or just a massive toolbag. Either way, he courteously labeled his windshield to eliminate any confusion.
I should probably start looking for a new apartment sooner or later. My building being converted to condominiums plus a deadbeat landlord are additional incentives.
And I didn’t even mention my proximity to the Intersection of Death.
Took a trip to Knox Farm in East Aurora today to take a look at the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall, a slightly smaller replica of the permanent structure that’s in Washington, DC. The power of the memorial, regardless of its form, lie with the 58,195 names etched on the wall.

Sam Roberts Band’s “Bridge to Nowhere” and Sullivan’s Island, SC. Corky’s “Poison Ivy” and Tuesday Night Podcasts. Every so often there’s a song you associate with an event or period of time, and every time you hear it again, you’re whisked right back to that moment. You’re then ripped right out of it by irritating minutiae like “your job” or “I’m about to have a car accident.” Such is the case with “Reckoner,” which we listened to in the car approximately 387 times over the Steve/Lindsey/EA Crew wedding weekend. Since then, I have listened to it approximately 579 more times. Enjoy.

Steve and Lindsey got married this weekend, providing a brief respite from pounding too many beers and eating our weight in chicken wings. It was great day, all around, and I speak for the EA crew when I say what a privilege it was to be a part of their day. Congratulations!
There’ll be plenty more to come over the next week from other sources. Stay tuned.
