I would just like to share the tonight I am seeing The Aging Alternative Icon and my personal hero Henry Rollins perform an evening of spoken word at Stephens Auditorium in Ames. It’s about an hour drive away for me, but it’ll be totally worth it.

Only downside is that Ames is home to Iowa State University and tomorrow is a big football came between their cross-state rivals at the University of Iowa. Everyone and their Dad is going to be in Ames for the weekend. It’s going to be tough finding a place to eat.

I’ve seen Rollins do spoken word about 7 or 8 times now and always get a big kick out of it. This is going to be hugely inspirational for me. A kick in the ass at the exact time I need it.

I met him once after a show in 1997. Got a picture, too. I think tonight I’m going to try and repeat history and get an updated photo.

Very exciting!

Henry and Me
