Tonight's Show

My wife and I have really been looking forward to tonight's concert featuring Terence Blanchard. From scoring films, to putting out grade-A albums, to contributing time and efforts to the Monk Institute, Blanchard has forged a career that should be exemplary for all up-and-coming musicians. As a former horn player, or more specifically, a former Miles Davis wannabe, it's going to be quite an experience to finally have the chance to see Blanchard en vivo. As far as I understand, Blanchard will be playing selections from his newest album A Tale of God's Will, which has been called a requiem, exploring the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Can anything go worse for the Padres?

I tore my ACL when I was 21 years old trying to chase down a loose ball during a basketball game. The recovery isn't fun, and no matter what they tell you, your wheels will never be the same after you've snapped one of those bastards.

Off to do a reading and workshop in Salinas, California for a bunch of young people. Can't wait.
