Executive Contour

"Now being a barber is a lot like being a barman or a soda-jerk; there's not much to it once you've learned the basic moves. For the kids there's the Butch, or the Heinie, the Flat Top, the Ivy, the Crew, the Vanguard, the Junior Contour and, occasionally, the Executive Contour."
- Ed (Billy Bob Thornton), The Man Who Wasn't There,

A hodge podge of good design, music ephemera, offbeat Americana, ad critiques, misty water colored memories of places I've lived and the Minnesota Twins.

I also run a little country blog called Both Kinds of Music.

There might or might not be a trip to Alaska planned for the longest day of the year. Ever seen the sun out at 3 in the morning?

There’s a store in Leola, PA called Sharp Shopper, which is where a lot of the Mennonite/Amish community gets groceries. SS gets a lot of failed brand extensions and almost expired close-outs in bulk from other grocery stores (for example, they had Halloween cereal in April). 
While the produce is a little questionable, the rest of the stuff has done alright by me. It’s actually one of the highlights of visiting. We call it the “used food store”.
I always grab a bag of cereal marshmallows. When people ask about it, I tell them that the Amish kids have to sit in a factory separating them out. Some believe me.

Superstar reduced to a bass, drums and Karen. Holy christ.

Those old friends who call you up and say “come out and be fun” and then you do and soon remember why you don’t talk to those dicks anymore.
