Quote of the Day

I am pleased the Ministry of Culture is protecting the morals of expatriate bankers and their girlfriends.” – Mick Jagger, Rolling Stones

The Stones played Shanghai, China last night, the culmination of an arduous road that resulted in the Chinese Ministry of Culture barring them from performing 5 songs (“Brown Sugar,” “Beast of Burden,” “Let’s Spend the Night Together,” “Honky Tonk Women” and “Rough Justice” ) which are, I suppose, the tool of the White Devil. The funny thing is, the ticket prices ranged from the equivalent of about $40 to $500, which meant that very few Chinese citizens could afford them, and prompted Mick’s sarcastic quote above.

non-sequitors:

-I played 3 hours of live NL Hold’em last night, and finished down $235, thanks to a poor decision which resulted in my inability to release a hand that was clearly not best. I also played a few pots in fine form, which was a positive, at least.

-Bobby Bracelet is raising funds in memory of a friend’s battle with cancer. If you’d like to support him, you can find the details on his web page.

-Oscar is recovering from Colitis – an infection of the colon, and he’s got a bunch of new toys. Here’s a picture of him pouncing on his cousin Gustav.


-A few precious days remain until I’m officially “Old.” Tonight’s forecast calls for “Severe drunkenness, with an 80% chance of feeling like crap tomorrow.”
