I have a few odds and ends I want to post and some notes to add about a book I read and movie I watched. Tonight, however, is not the night. There's rumbling and a little thunder and a lot of rain that passed through. The power even went out for a while. Sadly, it sounds like round two is right on the horizon, so I'm going to have to call it an early night.
(Notes on scary aging: While you probably think "didn't that guy die a while back," Shannon Hoon died in 1995. Yes. Those of us still here who remember that are getting old. He was one of those "oh... really?" people. When they die, you say that and move on because after all the drug stories it was kind of expected. Kristen Pfaff of "Hole" and Layne Stayley from "Alice in Chains" got the same reaction*. So will Amy Winehouse if she doesn't put the breaks on. This is the girl who's publicist denied she had early signs of emphysema without denying the crack smoking and cigarettes that were said to lead to it.)
(* did you know Layne Stayley only weighed 86 pounds when he died? That's scary thin.)
