Blues Traveler at the Regatta

No, that's not Blues Traveler, that's my old buddy Steve Payne who was singing in the opening act, Soul Doctor. He just shaved his beard off and now he looks (to me) just like his brother.

Below is another old buddy, Mike Keller. When we spotted each other, the crowd...

...had really started to crush in and there was no way we could get close to each other.

There's Popper! The concert was great, but really I was standing right in front of the speakers and I'm not sure what they were playing. I should have taken some earplugs.

Kanawha Boulevard was really rockin' tonight.

Because Thursday night is grocery night!

Deep Glamour, from Virginia Postrel

Noted libertarian author Virginia Postrel (former editor of Reason Magazine) has started a new blog called Deep Glamour which, I'm happy to say is featuring some work by me, in a post and also on the masthead. Postrel's books (The Future and Its Enemies & The Substance of Style) deal with the economics of change along with the economic impact of good design. I've long linked to her Dynamist Blog but this new one promises to be more interesting to me as it will deal exclusively with design and style.
