Head cheese



MC Chris is a droll product of ’80s culture, right in there with Weebles and Star Wars. As a Jersey kid, he rapped basement punk shows, and later at CBGB.

2. Idiot Wind: I’ve been reading Dylan’s Chronicles, and the book’s second part is about him trying to overcome being pigeonholed. I just got pigeonholed as the poster boy for Nerdcore in Time, so I can relate.

1. Oh, happy day: Tom Delay, indicted. The opposite of riots are happening in the streets. Everyone is giving high-fives. “We Are the Champions” is in the background.


Appears Monday, Oct. 10, at the Blind Pig, 208 S. First, Ann Arbor; 734-996-8555. With Snmnmnm and Urg.
