    I love Willie’s Picnic, and having it in Austin again seems to be fitting. Its always a great lineup that combines the old with the new really well. I think I have said it here before, but the last one i went to had ray price, randy rogers, billy joe shaver, jason boland, doobie brothers, bob dylan, los lonely boys, the texas playboys, james hand, jessie colter and even an odd back to back combo of janie fricke and cross canadian ragweed…good times.

    Tim McGraw may have another movie role, and one that may feed his political ambitions! Tim’s been considered for the role of Vice-Emperor Joke Biten under the rulership of Emperor Nero-Odumbo (who commands the Blue State “Moron Legions”!)! The movie follows the spectacular failures of the first year of the Odumbo Empire and features Nero, Joke, the Czars of the Red Square Table, and the synchophantic court jesters known as “Congressional Democrats”. This slightly fictionalized story will be written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and is to be titled “Those Incompetent Bastards!” That’s just freakin’ awesome…

    It’s comforting to know we can always turn to Rick for the latest innovations in making fun of people’s names. This from a man whose name also lends itself to abbreviation as “Dick.”

    Apropos of nothing in particular, is someone around here going to review the latest Joe Nichols record sometime? Unless I missed it, the album’s been out for a couple of months now and no response from the9513 has been forthcoming.

    Steve, Joe Nichols’ new record “Old Things New” came out on October 27th. I think it’s his finest work to date. It has some really great songs including the title track. I haven’t seen a review here of the album but it should definitely be listened to and purchased!

    Oh, I’ve got the record and I agree it’s a big step up from his last few records. I’d just be interested in the9513 perspective.
