I AM JOE'S BLOG POST TITLE.

The only thing of any interest in this bi-week's episode is the utter and conspicuous lack of the usual inter-song comedy bits. But then, who needs intentional comedy when you have the Jefferson Airplane pshilling psychedelically for Levi's, the utter unique in(s)anity of John the Postman, and me attempting to pronounce "Gbeti Madjro"?
