The Black Pees

Guys, you all know it happens sometimes. When standing up to pee, once in a while you carelessly…….miss. Maybe you’re not looking or things aren’t as, um, straight as they should be. But you miss. This happened to me in a most dramatic fashion over the weekend – I missed so badly I actually got some on my pants. Seems odd, yes, but I’m here to tell the truth. It wasn’t a lot or anything, I just knew right away because I didn’t hear the splashing. My god, what has this blog come to??? I’m just documenting my life, peoples. Sometimes it ain’t explainable.

Anyway, most of us will do the right thing and clean up the whiffed pee and then go about our day. Many will just leave it as is, especially at a public toilet. Tell you what, I NEVER touch ANYTHING when I’m in a public toilet. FORGET IT! I flush with my foot. I open all doors and turn on all faucets with my sleeve over my hand. I’m not crazily germophobic – that’s just common sense, people. Really.

OK, some music stuff. Steph and I are anxiously waiting with baited breath for the Nada Surf show tomorrow night here in Boston. We missed the last tour and I forget why, but neither of us have seen the band live yet and we are DYING to see them! That night is finally here tomorrow. Yee-haw.

Last week I hit on the new album by The Black Keys, called “Attack & Release.” This band is really growing a beautiful catalog of albums. Some would call them bluesy, others call them straight-up indie rock. It doesn’t matter what you call them – they make good music and they’ve carved out a sound all their own. You pretty much know it when you hear them. Here’s a track called “Things Ain’t Like They Used To Be” from the new album. Enjoy!
