Wow. These last couple of days have been filled with good news and nice coincidences.

Today on the way to Sultan's to meet up with Bob (who wasn't quite sure what to expect from LUNCHBLOG) I ran into Ben (see overused picture of the shirtless dude w/ cowboy hat and red silk jacket) and Monika (WLUW/ASCAP/goodfriend - rocking a nice new haircut). It was nice to see Bob and discuss the possibilities of a City on Film, Sleep Out show for later on in June. The coolest part is that it might take place in Geneva, IL where I grew up. In any case, Bob had some nice ideas for LUNCHBLOG...You know, to take it to the next level and give it kind of a freeform culinary/journalistic slant and some neat multimedia content. Some of the ideas had occurred to me before but he had some great new ones and I might just try to put a few of them to use. That would require a little tech upgrade for this site but maybe Ben can help out with that.

Anyhow, we both had falafels & some water and discussed the various things that had been going on in our lives...quitting jobs/traveling/touring/reunion touring/songwriting/"your band was really loud"/dog parks/coffee/police shootings/underpass mary/where is zach?/say hello to zach etc. etc. It was a very nice languid LUNCHBLOG without the pressure of the usual 30-60 minute time constraint. In any case, if all goes well I might be able to get him to do a little overseas LUNCHBLOG correspondence. We'll see...

Also, props to go Mike Downey (ex-Wolfie & current member of the New Constitution) for linking me today and sending a nice note regarding LUNCHBLOG. Mike, be expecting an invitation in the near future.

Tomorrow night I'll be at the Lucksmiths show at the Beat Kitchen. You should go too.

I think I set a new record for LUNCHBLOG hyperlinks today.

How about a nice picture? I can't think of anything super-related to today's, how about Ben "Soy-bombing" Rollo Tomasi?

and for a comparison's sake, the original soy-bomber and the first soy bomb victim, Bob Dylan.

And lastly, the Godfather of the Soy-bomb, Ian Curtis.
