Gina hits town on December 18th. What does everyones schedule look like?

Birthday request?

My birthday is Tuesday, November 30th. There is nothing I would rather do than have my music club over for champagne, pizza and beer.
What do you guys think?

Oh yeah, no theme just the idea of a helluva good playlist!!!!

Mr. Smith

My favorite Elliott Smith song "Waltz #2" played on the radio as I was driving into work today. I realized I haven't submitted any of his songs yet for music club. How can that be? A few personal nuggets regarding ES.

Ali and I sauntered up next to him at Sorry Charlies which was all kinds of awesome except that he seemed so very forlorn.

I played "Either/Or" at least once every day in 1997 (except for the two weeks I was in Italy). I was fed up with work and took a leave of absence. Instead of shuffling paper around, I played this album while drinking coffee in my pj's.

Gina, Politi and I went on a roadtrip to Portland for a concert (Coldplay, can you stand it?) in 2001. We ended up in some bar where I met another ES super fan (we are many, especially in Portland). He regaled me with all sorts of great stories about RS (sadly I don't remember any of them). It may still be my favorite conversation I've had with a stranger in a bar.

You Have Chosen Wisely.

I'm not saying there aren't mistakes. I'm certainly not saying there are.
Let me know if I have confused your excellent choice with someone else's equally awesome selection. Let me know how it looks.
