I know I've shared this with 11Wers before, but short version is that my daughters and I met him the week of his verbal commitment to OSU, when he was also their summer camp counselor (aka, Mr. Joshua). The camp wasn't sports-related (Camp Invention, an engineering/science camp) and it wasn't even located in his school district. Dude has been living "pay it forward" for a while now.

In addition to my handle, I'll throw out my fave obscure bands (check 'em out if you have time):

  • Squirrel Bait (Lousville, KY band waaaaay ahead of its time; produced spinout Slint)
  • Mission of Burma (just google That's When I Reach for My Revolver; you're welcome)
  • Silo the Huskie (Columbus' own; shoulda, woulda, coulda)
  • Big Back Forty, Gaunt, Haynes Boys/Tim Easton, Bush League All-Stars, New Bomb Turks & Lydia Loveless (all also prides of Columbus)
