Sunday's Summary

My incomplete recap of the week

I had an AXS show recorded that was titled "Dave Matthews Band Weekend on the Rocks" from a September 2005 concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It turned out to be Big Head Todd and the Monsters in a 2013 concert at that same venue. That's OK, Big Head is good too. Wonder where Dave is? I only got part of the Big Head Todd concert since it must have been 1:30 or 2:00 long and Dave's show was only 1:00. Big Head is on AXS on demand until 2/24.

I just found Dave Matthews and his band. He was on the back of what I thought was a 2:00 O.A.R. concert. Turns out O.A.R was only an hour & DMB from Round Rocks was the 2nd hour. Don't know if AT&T U-verse or AXS screwed up the onscreen TV guide. The O.A.R. concert was OK and DMB did their usual good job. The O.A.R. show is on AXS on demand until 2/24. Didn't find DMB rebroadcast or on demand. I'm now all square on my DVR'd concerts. I know you are all relieved.

James Spader, aka Red, got a little nasty tonight (1/13) on Blacklist. High body count. Another glimpse of Alan Alda too. The plot thickens.

As we've learned, no failed drug tests does not mean no drugs.

The new restaurant next to Big Lots is going to be Jibaritos', serving Puerto Rican food. Looks like it's scheduled to open next week. The sign is up but the windows are still covered. Don't know if the place is named after the sandwich or the owners. Maybe a review soon.

Found their website which includes a menu. Looks good.

What a depressing and oppressive place. North Korea needs to be liberated and Kim Jong-un tortured for about 20 years. Another enlightening episode of Frontline on PBS.

When's the last time you heard anything good about acetaminophen (Tylenol)? More bad news about OD's because it's combined with so many other drugs, prescription & OTC. Just take an aspirin or ibuprofen. Better for your liver.

I watched Obama's speech on national security and privacy. I know no more than I did before the speech. He said changes need to be made but offered little or no detail. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Until then the status quo remains in effect.

Looks like the big boys are getting ready to form their own league.
Awkward - wonder if she was unaware of the impregnation too?

Let's get working on this.

Korean - Mexican fusion. Interesting, not quite pulled off.

And finally, let's remember why we celebrate Martin Luther King Day. It's not an excuse to have a holiday or a big sale at a local store. MLK's dream is closer but not yet fulfilled.



  1. Patrick here....funny you mention O.A.R....I just remembered them out of no where the other day. Pretty much a one hit wonder for us 2000er's. They aren't bad, but they lack that second song to swing for a double.

    I always knew about the acetaminophen. They tell you to rotate ibuprofen for a reason. The "A" drug is found in so many prescribed and non-prescribed drugs that I'm not surprised. Doctors should know well enough to tell their out patients that they don't need Tylenol if they're using pain killers.

    As for Obama, I don't what to guess anymore. I don't think he's terrible as much as I think the guy has no clue what's coming to him next. Just brace for the Sochi games, put on your game face, and stay out of the Christie affairs. I assume he'll get crap for putting federal money in Christie's pockets only to be made a fool when Christie, in all probability, did what he liked with it.

    Nice overall post, Bill. Enjoyed.
