Nothing to do with racing, I just thought I'd show off this picture which is the best one I've ever taken of the statue of Nipper on the old RCA building on Broadway in Albany. Click on it to go to flickr.com and see it at full res.
While I'm off topic, the new Springsteen album, Magic, is some of the best work he's ever done.
I just added this category (offtopic/not about racing) mostly because there are times where I want to write about something else (I promise not to write about politics unless it has to do with racing in a direct way.)
Last night I ripped two of my old Camper Von Beethoven cds ("Key Lime Pie" and "Telephone Free Landslide Victory") so I could put them on my iPod. In listening to them, I realized how much I missed this band -- so I decided to google to see if there was any news. Amazingly enough, they're getting back together.
If you've never listened to Camper before, you should. They're a remarkable, eclectic group which straddles so many categories that nobody was ever quite sure where to list them -- a little rock, a little country, a little pop, and a generally fun attitude. If you don't place them, their best known songs were probably "Take The Skinheads Bowling" and a really great cover of "Pictures of Matchstick Men".
