Cooler than me...

I really am one of the coolest people that I know. That's why I made a blog - for me, by me, about me. Obviously you think I'm pretty cool, too, or you wouldn't be reading this. Occasionally, however, I am reminded that there are people cooler than me. This reminder came in 3-5 business days from Los Angeles. I LOVE parcels, there's no way around it. Usually I'm best at sending them. This time I got got, though.

An innocent little cardboard envelope arrived, inside, two discs entitled "Payne Workout?" (The question mark is not a typo.)

Winter in Missoula can be a bleak and dismal affair: convection cloud cover (I think it's unrelated to the oven, but maybe not), dastardly cold weather, no sun, this thing in your chimney called "cold barrier", I think it might be fake. So when you get something from sunny Los Angeles you pay attention. These discs were intended to be musical motivation to get me to through this winter's workouts, and let me tell you, anyone who can get Mika and Biggie Smalls' "Big Papa" on the same album and make them sound like they were meant to be there is cooler than me.

So a hearty thanks to my good friend, fellow blogger (http://matthewknuckles.com/) , a gentleman and a scholar, Matthew "Knuckles" Johnson.
