And now for something completely different!

So the wife and I traveled to Austin, TX this weekend and saw our favorite band, The Decemberists, in concert for the third time since we started dating. She had been a fan for a long time, but she had never seen them live until after we got together. We've now seen them here in Houston and traveled to Austin and New York City (where I later proposed) to see them. This show may very well have been the best, because they finally played our favorite song. A 9 minute sea shanty called "The Mariner's Revenge Song". No, this has nothing to do with that team from Seattle, but rather the old time pirate-y mariners... enjoy this interpretation...

And yes, I pre-posted this on Sunday and accidentally posted it live... then took it down... and then re-scheduled it for Tuesday... so, for most of you this will be "new" and for the rest you may have seen it briefly on Sunday... oops... they don't call me the dimwit for nothing!
