As I may have mentioned a time or two, interesting people show up at my Birthday parties. A few years ago, the Smashing Pumpkin's guitarist Ginger Pooley showed up with a bottle of Cristal Champagne. This year Justin Furstenfeld from Blue October came with a good bottle of red. It was a real treat meeting him - he's a class act - and I enjoyed showing him around my house. It seems we have a lot of things in common - other than his superior musical talents of course. Anyhow - I was invited to the Moody Theatre in Austin with some friends as his guests and managed a press pass and we made an appearance at an after party back stage. What a great band - true musical troubadours. Here, Justin poses with my pal, Texas State graduate Chris Moor.
