Happy actual Thanksgiving Day everyone. TB’s livin it up in Key West, family style. We’re getting ready to take a “Power Adventure Cruise”–full details later this weekend or when I get back home. Unfortunately, that’s also when the results from last week will get posted. Suffice it to say, all the lead dogs bit the dust last week so it’s goin down to the wire. Here are my picks for this week:

About travellinbaen

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    POTW all in: Pitt even

    Concert of the week: Municipal Waste.
    I went to Portland this week for work, and we went out one night to a heavy metal bar—not sure what to expect. It was all Goth, so everyone had on all black and many had facial rings and those big loop rings inside of their ear lobes. We stood out just a bit. Municipal Waste was the band playing.

    Back later with tunes, TB, I am real interested in those results since I was the only one near the top with a “W”, so let’s not get our brain sunbaked and become lacksidazical.

      Todd, thank you so very much for this honour. When I’m woikrng on Aedre’s Firefly, it is kind of like woikrng inside a storm inside a vacuum. That is it’s exciting and fun but also constrained by not really knowing if the truth of the story is getting across since I’m unable to see it from outside the story.Your wonderful and insightful precise of Aedre’s Firefly tells me it is indeed getting across. Your comments on every update, and those of the others who take some of their valuable time to comment there, have helped me to keep going telling Aedre’s story, and more have validated my reasons (if reason was ever a part of it) for publishing it in the first place. Thank you for that. And thank you for this.I never for a moment expected this especially since I associate the POTDs here with the funny webcomics. :`D And I’m quite moved by the delicacy with which you’ve handled it. Thank you for that, too. You are a kind and good soul, Todd. ❤

    SOTW vote: TB for We’re Going to Be Friends

  21. ZEEK says:

    My votes for tunes this week goes to Face (that was hilarious dude) and to Zeek, who seems to be coming on strong at the end of the season, unlike the Cotton Bowl bound Rebels.

  22. Mac says:

    I also will vote for Face. And let me add at this late point in the season, if you don’t post an easy to click video with your SOTW, you are not going to ever get my vote. I am part of the ADD generation.

  23. Jessie Lou says:

    My vote goes to Face as well.
