First: an annoucement. The third annual “Atwater March” pub crawl will be taking place in my neighborhood on March 24. We’ll be meeting at 3 p.m. at The Roost, then heading to the Morrisson, the Bigfoot Lodge, the Tam O’Shanter, and finally closing things out at The Griffin. All your favorite DFO personalities will be there in the flesh! Oh. You don’t have any favorite DFO personalities. Well, at least we’ll have Sponch! Assuming the gas station still stocks it. Join us!

It set its eyes on yeah right’s selection of Social Distortion’s “Bakersfield” and I can’t say I object one little bit. Chances are you won’t have too much of an appetite for music this week – you’ve got the announcers of the NCAA tournament who will be happy to serve as the soundtrack to your days – but if you’re hungry for some tunes, please help yourself according to need.
Since I managed to control my temper with the Spotify representative who informed me they wanted to double my subscription fee, I’m not yet locked out of their API! So here’s the Spotify link.
