Putting out a sign.

It reads: Closed for Labor Day weekend. The party restarts Monday or Tuesday.

In the meantime, you “Deadwood” fans might want to read Lance on the subject: Deadwood and the Libel of George Hearst.

    Brian, an aquaintance of mine from the music trading community went to see Pearl Jam two nights ago in Belgium. Here is his concert review. Thought you might be interested. I definitely found it interesting that they covered Pink Floyd’s Interstellar Overdrive (from their first album, Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1967, a Sid Barrett era song) for a kick off and then did Baba O’Rielly from the Who. From the post:


    Yesterday (August 30th) I went with my girlfriend to Pearl Jam in Sportpaleis, Antwerp, Belgium. We managed to get a very good spot, 3th row from the stage on the right side not far from the middle.

    The supporting act was Wolfmother which was in my opinion the best supporting act I have ever saw. They remind me of Led Zeppelin. They totally rocked and the crowd loved it.

    Pearl Jam was unbelievable!! It was one of the best shows I have ever seen, it was mind blowing.

    The setlist was as following:
    1. Interstellar Overdrive
    2. Corduroy
    3. Animal
    4. Hail, Hail
    5. World Wide Suicide
    6 Severed Hand
    7. Not For You (tag: Modern Girl)
    8. In Hiding
    9. Unemployable
    10.Given To Fly
    11.Even Flow
    12.Present Tense
    13.Do The Evolution
    14.Big Wave
    15.Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
    17.Why Go

    (Encore 1)
    18.Soon Forget
    19. Black
    20.Better Man
    21.Crazy Mary

    (Encore 2)
    25.Hunger Strike
    26.Baba O’Riley
    27.Yellow Ledbetter

    It was the first time ever that Pearl Jam played in Belgium (I’m from the Netherlands myself and they played many times there). Eddie said “Finally we have landed here, thanks for being here to catch us”
    Someone threw a t-Shirt on the stage with the Belgium flag on it and the following text: “We played in Belgium for 4 Hrs”. Eddie said something like we shouldn’t play for 4 hours but for 6 hours to make up for the past. Pearl Jam did their best to give us an unforgettable show and they were touched by the response of the public.
    “Black” was of the highlights, the public keep singing and singing and clapping and cheering and it was clearly visible that Eddie was moved, he had tears in eyes. A beautiful moment. Than they went on with Better Man and Crazy Mary which are beautiful songs that brought tears in my eyes.
    Andy from Wolfmother joined Eddie for the songs Hunger Strike and Baba O’Riley (The Who cover) which also was a great moment.
    I saw Pearl Jam also in 2000 on the Pinkpop Festival but this show was way better. They were on fire!! Eddie has his long hair back and he jumped around on the stage, he jumped on a speaker, threw with his microphone etc. It looked to me if we were back in time to 1992, the year that Pearl Jam went big.
    All the songs they played were great. World Wide Suicide, Given To Fly, Even Flow, Do The Evolution and Alive totally rocked. Indifference, Jeremy, In Hiding, Present Tense were beautiful. It was pure magic.
    Eddie promised to come back next year. I think I will be there again

    Danny – thanks!!

    They do indeed put on a great show (as I found out in West Lafayette, many years ago) and Eddie has a pretty funny, droll stage presence between songs.

    one (on a long, long list) of the Greatest Mistakes I Ever Made was not catching Pearl Jam at Toledo during the 2004 presidential race. The bootleg cd of that show reaches right out and grabs you.

    Man, they have over 50 PJ boots on this trading board. Even back to when they were called “Mookie Blaylock.” Let me know if there are any particular shows you are interseted in. I have bandwidth to burn and can get you a copy in the mail after I download it.

    Thanks for the HB Brian! We changed plans due to Ernesto. We were going to Charleston but instead headed for Atlanta on Thursday. Currently we’re engaged in painting our master bedroom, bathroom, and downstairs bath. (Thank you Home Depot for the 25% off sale.) We bought 14 gallons of paint in total. After vacation we’re going to do the rest of the house: entry hall and up the stairs, going into the family room and kitchen, and the office. Oh the dining room too. We are so sore today from yesterday’s efforts. I’m getting too old for this crap!

    Hey Mary I’m still looking for pics of Poppy at flickr!!

    Sorry, Dorothy. Still no pics of her loveliness. I’m not the photographer in the house or there would be. I’ll chase down a kid with a digital camera and get one this week. She is still very calm, very sweet and really smart. Max, the huge dane/boxer is seriously outgunned in the brains department by Poppy and Smokey, the retriever team. Max is all brawn and they let him think he’s the pack leader. Running after a puppy has made Max and Smokey a bit more toned, and Max is looking muy impressive these days. If I were a burglar and I saw 140 pounds of muscular boxer/dane mix coming at me I think I would reconsider my profession. Imagine a really strong looking boxer, but twice as big. That’s Max.
