We may have heard the last from one of my favorite bands of all time - Sonic Youth. The married couple who front the band, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, along with Lee Ronaldo, have seperated after 27 years of marriage. Damn.


Paul Demko and I had a great conversation about Memphis BBQ last night. He had been to the Rendezvous which I agreed was quite nice, while I have also been to the Interstate which was great, and then my fave of them all Payne's. Below is a picture of their pulled pork sandwich with weird yellow slaw on top.

Always remember this about Payne's: When they runs outta slaw, they close down fo da day.


RIP Danny Wheldon
