U2 and Pearl Jam performing at the same concert? Only if you live in a land far, far away, or in my imagination.
And after a long music video drought, Pearl Jam has done a totally fucked up video for Life Wasted. Eddie, I understand you don’t like hoopla and the press and all that jazz, but did you have to release a video displaying your head in various forms of grotesquenes?

After I read Melissa Bank’s first book , The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing, a few years ago, I added Ms. Bank to my list of authors to watch for.  Her second book, The Wonder Spot, lives up to her first and is a satisfying read.  I rarely read straight, plain ‘ol fiction, but writers like Melissa Bank give me hope that maybe there is some good, unpretentious stuff out there.

We, 14 others, 6 dogs, and a baby spent the Canada Day long weekend at Rancho Relaxo on Pender Island.  There was much consumption of booze, food, and fun had by all.
