Army Had Half-a-Day

Come 1 pm, consider me Doug. 'Cuz at 1 pm, I'm gonna shout, "Forget it, you don't understand, I'm outtaaaaa heeeeere."

The Ace Cowboy is taking a nice long weekend in beautiful, um, Cincinnati. No, seriously. The Queen City ain't gonna know what hit it. I've been looking forward to this weekend for a long time.

Things to do in Cincy (when you're dead):
1. Meet up with Tits McGillicuty and TJ in OH in the airport
2. Journey back to TJ's place, hang with HJ the wife and HJ the kid
3. Watch The Big Lebowski, The Last Waltz, Stop Making Sense and Bittersweet Motel in no particular order
4. Tear into a 3-way from Skyline Chili
5. Make Fluffhead Signs
6. Reds/Dodgers game Friday night at the Great American Ballpark
7. Reminisce about how great Phish truly was
8. See the Redheaded Fuckface/Bad Lieutenant with his new and probably disappointing band: 70 Volt Parade
9. Rip Trey's performance to shreds no matter how good or bad
10. Hit an after-show in the 'Da Natti

I think that's a pretty good list. Then I'll fly home all wasted and cracked out and have to eat some brunch and hang out with the family for El Dia de la Madre. Wonderful. Still, can't wait to get out of Dodge for the weekend.

Slack Song of the Day: Plane Crash -- moe. with John Medeski at the Tsunami Benefit on 2/10/05 at NYC's Roseland Ballroom. Ace, Donnie, Handstand, Lukas, Fluffdead and Marcus F and many more in attendance for what has been the Show of the Year so far.

Incidentally, the Medeski-led jam that begins about five minutes into the song is sickening...I can listen to this every day. Wait a minute, that's completely fucked up, I just made a tune called "Plane Crash" the song of the day on a day that I'm getting on a plane and flying. That's some fucked up repugnant shit.

So to clear my conscience, here's the Sneakin' Sally Thru the Alley from Trey's SuperJam at JazzFest this past weekend...

Ace - Do me a favor, I think I left my liver at the Outback Steakhouse bar at the Cincinnati airport 2 weeks ago, so can you take a look and see if it is still there.

Never get to the airport 5 hours before your flight is scheduled to take off. Bad news.

Have fun in Cincinnati. And remember, it's not the Cincinnati Airport, it's the Northern Kentucky - Cincinnati Area International Aiport. People will yell at you, I'm serious.

you will definitely like the great american ballpark (cool view and lots of skyline chili). try to keep track of the "pete rose HOF" posters/bumper stickers.

as to the airport, heed matty's warning. the first time i ever went there, i mapquested "cincinnati airport" and wound up at some super small private airstrip. it was rad.

also, i recommend after-partying on the kentucky side of the river (surprising cool scene), or (obviously) on the river boat casinos.

Thanks, gents, for the tips and the recommendations and the well wishes...gonna be a good time. Can't wait to see the inside of the GAB, I was there in Feb '03 but that was before the park oepened I think. I got to see the "Rounding Third and heading home" neon shit on the outside at least.

And since it's Cinco de Mayo, I also recommend drinking way too many margaritas in the airport lounge before getting on the plane and urinating openly once on board while simultaneously lighting matches on your shoes. Good times.

Hey man, have a great time in Cinci, should be awesome! From what I hear the band is getting better day by day. As far as the Tsunami Relief Benefit show 2/10 this year, it was absolutely amazing, I said at the time that I wouldn't be surprised if that's the best show I make it to all year!
