11 Songs for the Working Man

It's been awhile since my last post. I have been touring the California countryside only shortly thereafter to be entranced in Fantasy Football bliss. Drafting fantasy football teams is about as close to actual professional sports that most of us will ever come. Sure it's more pathetic than playing on a local flag football team but somehow it's immensely more rewarding. On a flag football field when you make a great play, it's only a momentary thrill. But in fantasy football, when LT goes for 5 touchdowns and he happens to be your starting RB, you feel like the entire country just watched your player. Even the announcers seem to be rooting for you in your extremely unimportant internet game. I kid you not, last year commentators spent more time talking about fantasy stats than actual game stats. There's a revolution coming. Mark my words but in a few years, we won't even need the real players.

Happy Labor Day!

Love your work man.

Any chance of a re-post of the first Soundgarden b-side collection you posted?
