Wilco at Millennium ParkOne of the reasons I’ve been so out of the loop in recent weeks is that I’ve been packing and moving from my first apartment here in San Fran. I’ve wanted my own place for a while now. I wanted to start setting myself up in a more proper setting to record podcasts (and/or start practicing drums again). Having my own apartment is definitely the way to go in helping to make some of that stuff happen. At any rate, moving has meant that I now have my own control over the multimedia setup in the household. I’ve got cable going again, which means that I get to actually watch TV while some good stuff is going to be coming back soon (uhm, Lost anyone?). I’m also quite a fan of The Colbert Report, and I’m psyched to see that he’s starting to feature musical guests on the show.

Coming up this Thursday, one of my my favorites, Wilco, is going to be the guest on The Colbert Report before they head to Madison for a free concert in support of Barack Obama. Then they’re going out on the road with Neil Young in December.
