My Eugene Fix

I'm back at home in Bend safe and sound after a great weekend in Eugene. I remembered how much I like the former town of Prefontaine (who I thought was a band when I first moved there). The moisture, the greenery, the eclectic mix of people, the university, and the overall character of of the town are all a fantastic contrast to Bend. Bend has its good qualities and I'm having a good winter, but its no Eugene. Of course the high point of the trip was spending time with good friends. Much good food was consumed, a lot of alcohol was indulged in, and at least one cup of super strong coffee courtesy of Elizabeth rocked my world.

Here's a shout out to my homies in Eugene for providing good times and places to stay.

Well, dude, you now have to grow a huge beard and become the BEST GUITARIST EVER just to start Prefontaine, the Rockingest Band in the Central Oregon High Desert. Because THAT, sir, is a great band name!

Side note: I'm not sure why you-as-guitarist immediately makes me think you need a ZZ Top beard. Probably because everyone needs a ZZ Top beard, even the ladies.

I also know where you could acquire a certain purple wig...

That purple wig is so perfect for your future band. You rocked that like no one else.

And lady beards immediately make me think of a stoning in a Monty Python movie.
