Glenn Beck and other BioFools

A number of radio yappers, bloggers and teevee hosts have taken the Bloomington school bus/biodiesel story I discussed here earlier and have run with it, even though most should now know that the initial reports that biodiesel caused the mechanical problems with a few, older buses stored outdoors are not true. Today I see Fox News “personality” Glenn Beck continues to spin out of control with this new offering. Here’s another jaw-dropper, blaming the “Miracle on the Hudson” crash on corn and biofuels!?!. I wrote on the Bloomington biodiesel incident in depth on the Gas 2.0 blog.

Local bands do stuff!

I got to see a great show last night – David Brusie at his CD Release Party – but then didn’t make it over to the Draw Fire Records Showcase which was also part of a launch for a  veggie oil bus tour to CMJ (yearly indie music conference).

Tonight however there are a couple bands are putting on shows to celebrate their CD releases.

Flin Flon Bombers CD Release – at the Kitty Cat Klub

Superman Curl CD Release – at Stasius

and also a musical/radio show live on stage about a band –

Don’t Crush Our Heart The Musical at the Ritz Theater

Sometimes I wish there was two of me so I didn’t miss anything.

Plus check out a cool video from the band Mighty Fairly

Master of field goals is pulling your strings.

Once upon a time there was a great band named Metallica that sang these lyrics “End of passion play, crumbling away, I’m your source of self-destruction” and once upon a time there was a Minnesota Vikings team that those lyrics couldn’t possibly describe.

That seems like such a long time ago.

Lately fans have grown all-to-accustomed to the last minute losses, poor play calling, and even poorer officiating that sometimes decides a game. Today, after 5 valiant field goals and stifling defensive game, another loss. In the bard’s tale of this Viking’s game, only one of the above recent failures applies, it was another unlikely last minute loss.

There are questions that fans and coaches alike must be asking, how can Adrian Peterson have such a great game and the team still gets an “L”, how can the defensive unit play so soundly for so long and the team still takes home an “L”, why didn’t the team score a touchdown with so many opportunities and so much run strength, and ultimately how can this season be saved?

Here are a few more questions while we’re at it.

Is Adrian Peterson learning what it’s like to be Barry Sanders?

Is it time to Free Frerotte? 

Is it possible that Brad Childress is becoming more unliked than Lars Ulrich?
