A Bit o'This n'That

Not quite the news, but not quite not.

Thanks to Star writer Dalson Chen for plugging my band's show this weekend at The Chubby Pickle in this morning's edition of The Scene. Though to be fair: (i) Only one of us lives in Toronto [the other two are in Fergus and the fourth still in Windsor and (ii) I don't know that the pastures were any greener up here.

That's January 25, this Friday, at The Chubby Pickle, downtown Windsor. Come on people, the Avalon closed, what else are you going to do?

University says the student violated the code of conduct. The NY Times says the university has no business pursuing it.

Barack Obama takes us to church on Martin Luther King Day. And speaks out on anti-semitism, homophobia and xenophobia in the process. Say what you will on the man, he is an incredible public speaker.

The loonie dips back to 97 cents. Maybe now those assholes at work will stop giving me lip about Canadian/American price discrepancies on books. But I doubt it.

In the abandoned Detroit Public Schools Book Depository, a tree grows among the rotting paper.

Let this be a reminder to you of how crappy Mondays are for news.
