The Onion On My Internet Belt

A certain dissatisfaction is upon me today. I slept poorly last night, as I do more nights than not. My back is sore again today and my stomach a bit sour.

The weather crisp and the seasons changing quickly. 53F, lightly overcast, light wind.

On balance the family is well. Really can’t complain.

There. We have had a full Minnesotan conversation.

But in that mode now I have to say a couple more things. It isn’t really a Minnesotan conversation unless the goodbye is roughly 40% of the overall time of the total talk.

There is a fine line between amusing asynchronous oddity and just bad taste. I believe that if I polled a few people about my musical proclivities I would find their responses would put me on both sides of that line. The only possible defense I have in favor of eccentricity rather than bad taste is my joy in owning but not listening to the albums pictured below. And yes, I own all of these.


Carmen Mastren – Banjorama


The Talking Parakeet


“Uncle Ozzie” Presents… Fiddlin’ Brass (recorded in Minneapolis!)


William Neil Roberts – Ragtime On The Harpsichord (why?)


The Good Twins – Dad and Mom’s Favorites


Scandinavia Today – Minnesota (1982)

Lucky for you not a single song off of any of those albums is ever slated to be in a mix.
