Got arrested for inciting a peaceful riot

I found a note on my desk that said, "Sucks to your ass-mar."

(Remember Lord of the Flies?)


I guess our little gig Saturday went well. Someone who was there asked Stanette today if we would play another Christmas party in a week or so.

There was one thing about it that was strangely pleasant.

After the first song, the crowd really applauded. It was a strange feeling. It was a palpable wave of clapping and yelling. I felt mildly embarrassed for some reason, yet I couldn't keep a grin from crossing my face.

I've tried cases to juries, given speeches, been interviewed on-air, but nobody really applauds... I've played some sports, and cracked countless jokes that have made people laugh, but this was really different.

It was pretty cool.


It is dumping at Big Sky right now. I will make my return to the slopes this week.

Oh, it's on.


Hey, wow. It looks like sometime later today, The Dude Abides will see its 100,000th visitor. I have that thing set to unique visitors, rather than page views, because it seemed like a more realistic gauge. I'm not trying to sell ads. I just want to know how many people visit.

(Unique visitors mean you get counted once every 12 hours, even if you hit refresh like a monkey on Ritalin during that time frame.)

So, whoever you are, Mr. or Ms. 100,000, um... thanks. Come back soon.
