Since I drive for a living and I prefer to have a few drinks when I party I cannot party downtown and then drive home without running interference with all of the cops on 99 waiting to bust the first driver who forgets to use a turn signal. You see if I get pulled over and I have booze on my breath I will have to go the 9 yards and do a booze or drug test. If I flunk it means losing my day job and my livelyhood.
Hence when I party I do it at home where I can drink as cheaply and recklessly as I want to without worrying about driving home.
How do all the clubs and bars stay in business with all of these cops flying like vultures waiting for their next meal? I dunno and I don't want to find out the hard way.
Another thing is that I get up pretty early just to drive 300+ miles a day and I need a solid 8 hours of sleep to do that. So please understand that I don't want to wait up till 11PM to see your band.
I'm an old fart just trying to stay alive.

Also we have Masita, a female spayed 3 year old domestic medium haired manx that was dumped in our neighborhood this fall. Both cats are in great shape and are available for a small donation .If you can help please contact me here or on my email firstname.lastname@example.org.Pictures to follow-
"Lest We Forget" was originally compiled and released by Aaron Elliot of the acclaimed fanzine Cometbus (and drummer for Crimpshrine and Pinhead Gunpowder) in 1991 to document the Berkeley punk scene of the 80's. I don't want to be accused of wild exaggeration by saying the music here is exactly essential (although there's some great stuff here) but it is absolutely essential to appreciate the why, who, and how of what was being created at the time. Their output has had a significant impact on today's music. You can connect the influential dots from this tape to Maximum Rock'n'Roll to Operation Ivy to Green Day to whatever indie/punk act you're listening to right now.
Close to 90 minutes of music are presented here as two rather large MP3 files. Instead of splitting each band's track(s) for individual download, this approach is an effort to preserve the original intent of compilation tape curators - listen to side one in its entirety, flip it, hit play and listen to all of side two. Also, it would have been an incredible amount of work to make separate files for each song and I'm incredibly lazy. Complete liner notes are included too. Enjoy.

Don't Be a Victim!
With the number of goat traumas increasing every year, it has become necessary to take measures to protect yourself. With this in mind, the Childhood Goat Trauma Foundation has put together this list of advice.
- Avoid petting zoos. The majority of goat traumas occurring each year take place at petting zoos.
- Stay alert. Goats are deceitful and can hide just about anywhere.
- Stay in civilized areas. While there have been reports of roaming urban goats, most attacks by loose goats take place in less populated areas.
- Be suspicious of all farm animals. While other animals such as sheep, cows and horses are not by any means the violent creatures that goats are, goats frequently lurk within a herd, waiting to take advantage of peoples' trust in such animals.
- There have been some reports of goats avoiding the presence of certain breeds of dogs, but the Foundation has yet to test this theory.
- If you must be in an area where goats are present, stay away from the younger goats. Older goats can be slower, allowing you more time to escape.
- Wearing earth tones in goat-infested areas may offer some protection from goat attack, due their camoflaging abilities.

Hooray for Honey Vizer and her litany of libidinal pleasures to be had at the Eugene Public Library (11/11)! The Library should reward her as a featured performer in one of the concerts in its sexy rotunda, and let us all have a taste of that wild Honey!David Landazuri, Knight Library, U

Shawn Mediaclast -- owner and operator of the Museum of Unfine Art and Record Store, located at 537 Willamette St. -- is not available for magic but does offer a wide range of gift possibilities. One of these is a thermin, one of the earliest electronic instruments widely known for its use in 1950s science fiction film soundtracks. Mediaclast also suggests his humorous gift certificates and Tiny Tim's "Christmas Album" as possibilities.
The downtown Eugene store is part avant garde gallery and part eclectic record store. The store contains more than 100 ties, a child's tiger suit, Manic Panic hair dye, dusty records and cigarettes. Buttons that read "Old Fart" and "Reporters Tell Stories" lay behind the counter. An old telephone booth functions as a changing room to try on polka-dot shirts and puffy vests. The walls are galleries, filled with ever-changing pieces of art.
The subtitle of Mediaclast's business card reads, "Musique, Art & Fashion Concrete."

Check out the review of this great CD box from Amazon.com:
"One of the most ambitious box sets yet, the five-CD Respect distills 89 years of recorded women's voices. Disparate styles and attitudes meet and mix with each other in the crosstalk, with personal, social, and musical values melding into an astounding whole. Attentive fans of pop music will probably find most of their major discoveries on the first two discs; for instance, Anna Chandler's 1916 "She's Good Enough to Be Your Baby's Mother and She's Good Enough to Vote with You" may very well find the listener with her or his mouth hanging open. Those unfamiliar with Loretta Lynn's "The Pill," X-Ray Spex's "Identity," or Queen Latifah and Monie Love's "Ladies First" are also likely to be shocked into big grins and furiously nodding heads. The connections to be made here are endless: spinning these largely chronologically sequenced discs in order is mind- and ear-expanding enough, but it's also fun to play, for example, Kitty Wells's "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" and Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" back to back. "We Belong Together," Rickie Lee Jones insists near the end of disc four, and it's hard not to imagine that she's singing to every other woman on Respect. "--Rickey Wright
