First some not fun. I've done two trainer workouts this week, including a simulated cross workout on the trainer. Other than enjoying the glories of my Kurt Road Machine w/t Rock & Roll Base (still an excellent, excellent choice) I can say definitively, I'd rather be riding outdoors. But the kid is sick, I'm working from home and caretaking, and the weather has been spotty. So it's onto the trainer. This is a good thing though, and I'm sitting on the Cone of Smugness right now, because I've never been able to keep up my riding when the outdoor riding has been difficult or non-existent. I don't even resent getting on the trainer lately. Something has changed for the better. Maybe it's having a better trainer, maybe I'm just getting used to the discipline. Oh, I still suck. But I am training more consistently and surely that has to pay off in some way. Right? Right?
Oh nevermind. You're just here for the videos.
But first, open another window and go register for the Tacchino. I swear to God, if you people don't show up in record numbers, I will eat the whole Suitcase of Sausage myself. [Ed. Stand back - I think he's serious!]. Seriously. It's going to be a great course, and we're setting it up to make it very spectator friendly, perfect for an outing. Plus, for a limited time only, you can register for the low, low price of only $20, and even less if you're a junior.
You all remember this, right? Devo was a Mark Mothersbaugh gig.
What has Mothersbaugh done since whipping it, whipping it good? Just this:
This is akin to finding out that Johnny Ramone was a conservative Republican. Not that there's anything wrong with that; it's just not what you would have expected.

Nice, huh? I don't know why but I do like that. The profile of what looks like Dolly Madison on the front of her mini piano is interesting... maybe she's obliquely a fan of Aaron Burr? She has a pretty good sense of humor so it's possible.
Now that's hilarious.
Anyhow, she's apparently done some shows with Ben Folds and is on tour now, hitting Madison WI on October 30th - I know I have a bunch of readers there so if you like it might be worth checking out a show. She gets rave reviews.
