Music Monday: Five Too Many

"Five Too Many" does not, in fact, describe how many goth bands I listened to this weekend. It is, however, one of my favorite tracks from the album Scenes by the Jigawatt Trio. It is not at all gothic. It's funky instrumental jazz-rock fusion, I guess, and a lot of fun.

The guitarist for the Jigawatt Trio is Steve Richards, a college/grad school friend of mine. I somehow missed the fact that his band had recorded an album until recently, but I've been enjoying listening to it.

Here's a live clip of the band playing "Five Too Many":



The album, Scenes, is available on iTunes and other usual music-purveying suspects. Check it out.
running, shoes

Happy feet

So, tonight I went up to the UCSF RunSafe clinic for a running evaluation. This involved a strength and flexibility assessment by a physical therapist, an evaluation of my feet and shoes by a podiatrist, a chat with a nutritionist, and an analysis of video of my running gait while running on a treadmill.

I'll probably do a longer post once they've sent me the full report on their analysis. I was, however, absurdly pleased to be informed by a podiatrist that I have perfect feet for running. Because, really, I've never had a perfect anything for anything, athletics-wise.

Also, my gluteus maximus is apparently "legit".
