I was half thinking of writing a full blog titled Lyle Lovett Is A Beautiful Man, but there were other themes to touch on today, so the moment passed. His songs come from that place where pain becomes art. His albums are worth multiple listens and continuously give your something to savor.
There will be all kinds of events throughout the week including Huskies baseball, Lake Superior Zoo, the Adventure Zone, Wine & Beer Tasting, Irvin and Meteor tours, and a free trolley to transport folks here, there and everywhere. And dagnabbit, it's all free.
The Saturday event will have live music all day, including a couple of my favorite groups, Centerville All Stars and Uprising. But there's plenty more, including Hannah Rey, Ultra Day,. the Bryan Olds Band, Brothers Burn Mountain, and Old Knifey and the Cutthroats. The Reader is asking the public to bring non-perishable food items when they come to the park that day to support our community food shelves.
I saw a description of Salvador Dalí the other day that triggered an unexpected thought. "Dali, a colorful and imposing presence in his ever–present long cape, walking stick, haughty expression, and upturned waxed mustache, was famous for having said that 'every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí.'" It struck me that Rush Limbaugh might make a statement like that.
