Who loves the sun?

Read my City Pages story about the Owls (click above for larger image), including a photo gallery, mp3s, and a podcast. (The wonderful cover illustration, below, is by Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher, from a photo by Nick Vlcek, who took all the Owls pictures.) Then check out these links related to the band, which performs a CD release party at the Cedar in Minneapolis on Thursday, with openers Elk:

Who loves the sun?

Hello, I must be going

Ten years ago I walked off the job at a nearby factory and walked over to City Pages, to Will Hermes's office. I didn't start here right away, but I knew this was where I wanted to be. Now it's my last week, and I can't even begin to list all the people and memories that made this such an amazing place. I'm not entirely out of here: Graciously, City Pages will continue hosting this blog, complicatedfun.com.

But as of Thursday (my 38th birthday), I'll have emptied my desk and stepped on a plane for Las Vegas, using a trip I won at the holiday party in January. If you need the excuse, stop by for a drink at Jager next Thursday (November 15) during happy hour. Thanks for the only job I ever looked forward to in the morning when I woke up.
