Congrats are in order for my favorite contrarian and Astros fan, Patrick, who got engaged recently.

All the best, homey. She's a lucky woman.

I went to see my favorite Austin band, Grupo Fantasma, last night. Best damn latin dance music band...ever. As usual, they brought the party. They usually play at The Parish (I'm finally getting used to saying that now), but last night the show was at Maggie Mae's. The crowd was thin for a Grupo show, but you can't see them live and not dance, so it was rowdy.

Now my head hurts and I've felt all morning like I've been walking on a balance beam, about to fall off.

It was worth it. If you haven't seen these cats live, do it now. Also, check out Brownout - a side project from some of the Grupo guys - for some instrumental funk that could easily have made it into my post on throwback funk outfits except that they don't have a CD yet. But they do have a 7" out on Freestyle Records, an eclectic, prolific label out of London that is one of my faves recently. The record release party is on Saturday night at Emo's - a weird venue again, but they never disappoint. I'll be there - you should be, too.

Conservatism and Personal Responsibility 

Glenn Greenwald is on a roll lately. Really all his stuff is good these days, but this one I really liked.

I haven't been posting on politics much lately, and I'm not going to comment on this one - I'm trying to keep my blood pressure out of the red - but I will pass it on.

Ah blogging... 

The only phenomenon I can imagine that would lead to a tenured professor at a major American law school publishing a sentence on the internet that starts with the word llamasex.

Genographic Study 

This is sweet.

I might just shell out the dough...that seriously makes me curious.
