Bicycle Film Festival & Kaiser Cartel

It was a busy weekend around here. The Bicycle Film Festival ran from Thursday through Saturday, and we attended the late films on Thursday night and Saturday night. The BFF is great, and we are both glad that it has come to Minneapolis the past three years.

Kaiser Cartel was back here in Minneapolis for shows on Friday night and Sunday. We ended up missing Friday night's show due to some severe weather that came through. We did attend one of the 3 shows at the Bryant Lake Bowl on Sunday night, really enjoyed it. Tomorrow will be our daughter Jess and son-in-law Ben's one year weeding anniversary, and Kaiser Cartel played there. They just released a CD called March Forth, and one of their videos appears on VH1.

I keep having encounters with people from Hodag country... Rhinelander, Wisconsin. I had three such encounters this week. First - I bought a headset for my computer from a guy on eBay who lives in Rhinelander. Second - I encountered a guy with a Rhinelander T-shirt while I was on my bike on West River Parkway. Third - I meet up with Jeff to buy a couple of cool hats and discover that he is a full-on Hodag. So - I told him about this and he says "yeah, we are everywhere."
