What does Jonathan have to say?



A Much Different Kind of Voodoo...

img_38221 So this week, I'm recapping some of the adventures my girlfriend Lindsay and I had road tripping  from Portland all the way back to Madison.  However, I still have to tell you about one place in Portland first: Voodoo Doughnut. I had read about it and wanted to go before we left Portland.  The place did not disappoint. Sure, there are donut shops with some decadent treats, but this place is absolutely crazy. First, let's start with the decor.  It's a small shop where the line stretches outside the door.  They're open from 6am until 2am each day. The walls are covered with rather unusual artwork.  Not only are there crazy pictures on the wall but also obituaries img_3823from famous people who have recently passed away.  Sounds rather creepy, but everything gets even better because the donuts are out of control. img_3829The donuts have everything from cereal to bacon on top!  They even have vegan donuts too.  We went to Voodoo at about 10pm and it was packed.  The line moved rather slowly and I wondered how long it really took to hand out a few donuts to drunk and hungry patrons.  I understand why it took so long.  It wasn't the staff but rather all the customers who couldn't decide what to choose. I ended up with the Triple Chocolate Penetration which was a chocolate donut with Coco Puffs cereal on top.  Lindsay's donut had Fruit Loops on the top.  I can't even remember what our friend Andrea ordered, but her boyfriend Tony got the biggest glazed donut I've ever seen. img_38341 Voodoo was a great experience, but  I'm glad there isn't one in Madison because I think I would be there EVERYDAY.  I'm still craving another donut covered in cereal and it's probably best I can't have it. Although, I do have cereal  in the house.... Tomorrow:  Adventures  from the road as the journey from Portland, Oregon to Madison begins!

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
