Okay, Part 2 Will Wait Till Monday

So I got busy with work and whatnot and couldn’t produce “Corporate Socialism News, Part 2” today. Plus, I suddenly got overwhelmed with content. At first, I was just going to make a crack about the abject horror of J.D. Alexander controlling the state budget this year. (Talk about a one-man stimulus plan. Literally, a stimulus plan for one man. On the other hand, maybe Lakeland High will get we’ll that long-awaited domed stadium for the Dreadnaughts to play in, err, under. Go Naughts tonight, by the way, big game.)

But, as it turns out, there’s all sorts of corporate socialism news to root through. So I’ll do that and publish something Monday, when some of you might actually read. In the meantime, check out Florida Mortgage Blog’s very solid, very fair account of the ILC approval. (Note to Bob, this is how to do it.)

And on top of that, Kevin Sandridge, the blogger behind the blog, is like me, a Liz Phair fan (smart, saucy, racy rock singer, for those of you who don’t know), or so his Facebook page tells me. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Anyway, speaking of music, I’m off to Skipper’s Smokehouse to see James McMurtry in concert tonight. It’s my 37th birthday tomorrow, and the other half of the sinister Townsend axis permitted me to blow off First Friday and take in some music. Doesn’t mean the rest of you can.

  1. Hey Billy, muchas gracias for the link love. We’ll have to catch up on our respective music collections – though, mine is increasingly fueled by Blip.fm (flmortgagepro) and Pandora these days! If you’re on Twitter… let’s link up there as well.

    Nice to make another local acquaintance…

    Until later on – Kevin

  3. Billy, did you get to the McMurtry show in time to catch Ronny Elliot? Something tells me you’d appreciate his wry, twisted, cynical, dark sense of humor — and I mean that as a compliment.

  5. It’s nice to be complimented. I did see Ronny Elliot, and he was good. Skippers is a fantastic place, and the have easily accessible Sierra Nevada. It was a little disconcerting to turn 37 and yet be the youngest guy at a rock show, though. A lot of guys with gray beards, straggly salt and pepper hair, and old livers. Lot of fun.

  7. Gotta love Skippers. There’s always a contingent of ex-hippies with scraggly hair, beards, faded Hawaiian shirts and sandals. Would they be in Tampa if WMNF wasn’t?

  9. By the way, Ronnie Elliot was in Lakeland for a Friends of Joe concert in mid-November. He’s very entertaining. :)
