Re: the image above. Sean Tillmann of Sean Na Na says it pretty well in his song “We’ve Been Here Before”:
When we come/
back to home/
Look at how our love has grown/
For the people and the rusty cars/
The local bars and mini-marts
Holy Nailed It, Sean Tillmann. A tip of my hat.
I have a Sean Tillmann story. I saw him play at Jay’s Upstairs in Missoula when he was Har Mar Superstar. He stripped down to his undies and got off the stage and started dancing in the crowd (while singing). Then I think he was kind of trying to dance with me. But I was lame and all embarrassed so I kind of snubbed him and pretended I didn’t notice. I don’t have many regrets, but this is one of them.
Fact: Sean Tillmann used to be in a band called Kids Incarcerated.
Additionally, Icebreaker is having an in-house t-shirt design contest. Exciting!
Hey, there’s a word for what I am! “Flexitarian”!! I belong!! From slate.com:
There’s never been a better time to be a half-assed vegetarian. Five years ago, the American Dialect Society honored the word flexitarian for its utility in describing a growing demographic—the “vegetarian who occasionally eats meat.” Now there’s evidence that going flexi is good for the environment and good for your health. A study released last October found that a plant-based diet, augmented with a small amount of dairy and meat, maximizes land-use efficiency. In January, Michael Pollan distilled the entire field of nutritional science into three rules for a healthy diet: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” According to a poll released last week, Americans seem to be listening: Thirteen percent of U.S. adults are “semivegetarian,” meaning they eat meat with fewer than half of all their meals.
