Welcome back. Rough week? Yeah I understand, but read the question in the picture above. I always think the simple question atop Daniel Johnston’s most iconic album cover is so heartfelt. And after the let down of last week, it’s nice to just ask.
As some may know, Daniel Johnston passed this week. He is an Austin icon, and to many a rock and roll pioneer. I am not going to pretend that I am super into his music, but I appreciate his influence on many bands that I am very much into, and a lot of the covers are very sweet. Listen below to Karen O, of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, sing a very simple pretty Johnston song.
It is hard to be mean, sarcastic or witty when the Ags are coming off such a big game, and for most a big disappointment. On the bright side, 10 more games and probably at least 4 more build ups like last week. OK pitty party over, nut up buttercup Game 3, here we go! YEAH EFFIN’ LAMAR!
The last time we played the Fightin’ Golden Trianglers, we had just come off a stupid display of offense from Mr. Trill, over what turned out to be a mediocre Skarilina. Remember those days? I ‘member. Now we are in a different place, with a different coach and a banged up team. A solid scrimmage from a powerhouse Beaumont high school team is just what this team needs. Whatever, play FCS schools to get healthy and let them collect a paycheck, and don’t pull a Tennessee.
I didn’t do this last week, and I should have. The Spaghetti Monster in the sky at GBH have allowed me to be a weekly fixture now. I really appreciate the opportunity for more people to read my ramblings and hopefully listen to my weird weekly mixtapes. If you like the article, let me know. If you hate this article, definitely let me know. Either way I am so happy to officially be a part of this super weird and completely dysfunctional family.
We only get two and a half more moths of precious, precious TAMU football. Enjoy the game, stop complaining, drink a beer, have fun, be safe and BTHO lamar!

I listened to my old pal @jimmygrards, that any list that goes from UGK to Joplin is worthwhile. The greatest voice to ever come out of Texas
