A rare Saturday post from Steanso, but alas, I am tired of watching bad television and I can't seem to keep myself entertained.
Last night I went and saw Billy Harvey and Buttercup at the Hyde Park Theater. It was a good show- an intimate venue with a crowd which was obviously familiar with the band and their music. Billy Harvey, a singer-songwriter who opened up for Buttercup, was really good as well. I hadn't seen him before. Andy F. was in attendance at the show with Rami, and he got quite bent out of shape when the son of Buttercup's bassist won the painting of a squirrel which was created and then raffled off during the show. Andy thinks that the whole thing was fixed, but I kinda doubt it.
We also attended Kim Bloom's birthday soiree after the Buttercup show. Happy birthday, once again, to Kim. It was fun and we drank too much and had to go home.
Then this morning the damn Blooms cancelled the tubing trip after I dragged my sorry butt out of bed for it and everything. I ended up taking Cassidy down to Barton Creek so we could swim and she could play with other dogs, but I'm still bummed about the lack of tubing. It's a summer ritual, and time is short.
Well, that's it for now. There are war protestors squaring off and hurricanes headed for The Big Easy and mice being engineered to live twice their normal life span, but I can't get my head around that stuff. It's Saturday.

Buttercup also believes the fix was in. There are reports that Kenji, the 3-year-old son of Odie, was seen asking adults how to spell "Kenji" and asked to hold the raffle tickets and a crayon.

Buttercup denies any complicity in artwork conspiracy. However, Kenji is no longer allowed to participate in raffles, or look at art.

I'm kind of impressed that 3 year old Kenji managed to win a giant picture of a squirrel who was talking about the fact that his nuts were tingling. Poetic justice. And DK- thanks for the invite. I thought about you guys when the Blooms cancelled, but we were an hour behind you guys and you were already long gone, no doubt. Thanks, anyway.

CrackBass requests a refund of all illegally obtained funds. That's $6 for the raffle tickets, and one lime from Buttercup's manager (given in exchange for Hurricane, which was not excahnged.) However, since the Hurricane was somewhat out of the manager's hands, CrackBass will accept an opening slot.
