RIP: Mitch Mitchell

Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell died in his sleep last night. If ever there were a drummer defining the late 60's, it's him.

Recently, I was just contemplating ripping some of my vinyl collection, so that I'd have things like a recording of Keith Emerson and Mitch playing Miles Davis' Freedom Jazz Dance. Won't be able to do that today, in the meantime, I'll have to move a Jimi Hendrix play-list into the rotation on my iPhone.

It's week 10 and my Ravens are 6-3

Wow, I've been silent up to this point not wanting to jinx anything. My Ravens seem to have an offense. You have to love what John Harbaugh is doing with this team, and I can't say enough good things about Cam Cameron. Joe Flacco seems to be the first real QB on the roster, since Vinny Testaverde. I'm enjoying watching balanced football games, with nice long clock killing drives.

The only bad thing this week, having to root for the Slurs and Clots because they're playing the Appalachians. It makes me feel dirty, but the playoffs are not an outlandish possibility now.
