Tuesday Tidbits

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was pretty OK. But there's a lot to talk about today, so let's get going. That rhymed.

First, we really need discuss why the city would be doing roadwork where 91 and 95 meet at 10 a.m. Let's see, well, that's one of the busiest areas, traffic-wise, in the entire city, so why not do roadwork during the tail-end of rush hour. It makes complete sense to me. To get from my apartment in East Rock to the Register, oh, about 30 minutes this morning. Fun.

Now that I'm done complaining, and thank you for listening, let's talk about "Friends (With Benefits)," Gorman Bechard's upcoming comedy. I saw the film Saturday and it's definitely worth keeping tabs on, making sure you know when it comes out. Many, many scenes are laugh-out-loud funny and, simply, it's a good movie. I'll keep you posted. By the way, the picture above is of three of the stars of the flick.

Angela Easterling and The Hickups perform at Cafe Nine tonight, which makes the venue the spot to be if you like your swinging country music. It's a top-notch bill, so head over if you're so inclined.

I lost in my fantasy football playoffs. I'm a sad man. Sad.

It turns out that 25-year-old guy who spent like $200K on tickets to Led Zeppelin's show last night made a good investment. All reviews say the band was amazing.

Well, Quiet Riot's Kevin Dubrow died of a cocaine overdose. Sadly, this isn't the least bit surprising.

I can't say I've ever watched "Dancing with the Stars." It's been on in bars that I've been in, so it's not like I'm completely naive to it. Anyway, what a month for the 19-year-old dancer Julianne Hough. First she wins her second "Dancing" championship, then she ruins someone's engagement and now she's been signed to a record deal. She's going to make country music.

So I guess that's it from this end. We'll talk tomorrow about Hot Rod Circuit's final show. That's it.

See you at Anna Liffey's for trivia tonight? My team came in fourth last week with only four people; we have our sights on first tonight. See you there.

I saw Angela Easterling play Folsom Prison Blues last summer in Shelburne Falls, MA. That was weird.

I think folks think it's incredibly lame to play "Walk the Line," obviously, so too many cover "Folsom Prison Blues" now. I can't tell you how many bands I've seen cover that song in the last five years.
