Celebrating 2 years/Freedom

Following this, I spent some time with my friend Smoothy(pictured here, not actual size) at KMSU. Smoothy has been away in the mystical land of China, teaching math I failed in college to High Schoolers, in their second language. This is slightly different from me learning Calculus in college from a Native Russian teaching for the first time in English.

We also saw some great local music on the patio at Savoy and played a few tunes with local Avant-Garde originals "That's What She Said". I had a chance to hear "The Organic Cowboys" for the first time and enjoyed their high energy set to 6 patrons. Stealing the show was Mankato's "Body Politic". I waited way to long to see these guys play the best local punk I have seen in a long time. They gig every weekend so get out and catch em'. Cheers to Smooth One!
