Good afternoon, efd & funksters!

I do recall The Hef did open a recording arm of his Playboy enterprise. As you would expect, most of their star performers were female singers. But I've never heard of this Charlie Kulis. Might be intriguing to find out what he did for a living outside of making music.

Speaking of, and I mentioned this to clarke already, I caught a screaming line drive off my neck while pitching batting practice(!) yesterday. Honestly, I think if it had been two inches to the right, it might have killed me. Didn't even get a bit of glove on it, it came so fast. Fortunately hit the side of my neck, which is sore and a little swollen today. But just one of those moments, like driving on the Taconic in the rain, where you realize it all could have ended in a hurry.

Of course, then I had to pitch the rest of the game.

Thanks EFD. I will as soon as I’m done working my day job. Thanks! And, we did play a show with Mercyland at the end of February. Love those guys. I was at Mercyland’s very first show with the BBQ Killers in 1985 or so. Dave Barbe was also incredible in Sugar with Bob Mould.

I have vivid memories of getting hit with line drives while pitching church softball. It hurt so bad. Also reminds me of practice, when my teammate would hit line drives at me on purpose.
I do remember catching one that was heading for my face in a game. I looked cool, I guess, but it was just a need for survival taking over.
