Fucking Clemson, I swear. I love you, I truly do, but you make me crazy. Finally, after years of struggle, you make it back into the top 10. Yeah, baby. One of the best 10 teams in the country. Then what do you do? You go out on a Thursday night, wearing all white like you’re a virgin or whatever, and you basically give it up to an unranked Virginia Tech team who was more than willing to see if you put out on the first date. Damn you, Clemson. Did you HAVE to go and lose 24-7 on national TV? Gawd. It’s appalling. I don’t even wanna talk about it anymore. So much for a BCS bowl, guys, and you can pretty much rule out an ACC championship, too. Would you like to see our fine selection of Continental Tire Bowls, or perhaps a lovely Gator Bowl? Step this way, please.


My band Nonetheless is gigging tomorrow night, people, and let me tell you – it’s gonna be an event. If you’re in town or nearby, you HAVE to come out. We’re gonna be at Tomcats in Deep Ellum, our home away from home. There’s gonna be a costume contest, with the winner receiving a $50 bar tab. And the band will be in costume. Oh, yes. And you KNOW I’ll have pictures of that craziness. We’ve got a few important dates coming up over the next couple of months, so if you’re nearby, try to come out.

  • Oct 28 at Tomcats
  • Nov 17 at Curtain Club (Oh yeah, baby!)
  • Dec 9 at Tomcats (Ryan’s House benefit show)
  • Dec 31 at Tomcats (ENORMOUS New Year’s Eve Bash with prizes for all)

As always, check us out at www.ntlband.com or on our Myspace site to get all the details.
