For my 50th birthday, my wife reached out to friends past and present to ask about related music connections, and asked them to contribute one or more albums to my "50th birthday vinyl stack". Most added some pretty heartfelt comments to their selection. Another friend created custom stickers for each selection. Blown away by the scope of the effort, and the resulting wave of memories and emotions.

Grandaddy fans...Jason Lytle just scheduled a solo show ("an evening of acoustic piano and guitar") here in Portland on March 13th. It appears to be his only scheduled show at the moment, but it's some kind of sign...(and yes, I'll be there).
In Vermont, drinking an Alchemist Focal Banger (Heady Topper also in the fridge), getting ready to watch the World Cup match, and looking forward to opening night of Solid Sound Festival...Courtney Barnett opening up for Wilco. Life is good.
