Those bags of beans at the store have been eyeballin' me for awhile now and last week I succumbed to the pressure. Bean pressure. Beans are a relentless force that will not deny or avow their greatness, even facing McNulty and Bunk in room 5. However, some beans are cocky and will tell you how great they are, some many times over, like in a stew that you can keep in the fridge for a week or so. These were those beans. Fortunately enough, mine didn't last a whole week. I had visitors (that will be receiving my Atmos bill in the mail shortly) in from sunny California this past week. After a long couple of days on the road, they needed a hearty handshake, laurel and a good meal to fight off Winter Blast 2009, the Second Coming. As a sidebar, I had the immense pleasure of seeing M. Ward at the Horchow Auditorium in the Dallas Museum of Arts on Sunday. He played this and it was fantastic. If you get to see Matt this week at SXSW, do it.
