Friday Photo #22 
or O!M!G! Corn rows? Wtf were they thinking?!? 

Okay, so last night was the live streaming listening party of Rhett Miller's new self-titled CD over at I'd never partook of such an event before. (Baby's first live online event!!) It was ginormous FUN filled with lively conversation, witty commentary, videos of Rhett talking about each track, the CD in its entirety and... the piece de resistance (add your own French accent marks since, clearly I have no idea how to access them on the keyboard)... several uber embarrassing promotion shots from his early, early career. 

This one is by far the most amusing. 

There is so much going on in this photo that is just ...wrong. The checkered jacket clashing with the striped shirt clashing with the polka dot tie accented by the saucer-sized, 80s glasses topped off with ...corn rows? CORN ROWS!? Seriously...corn rows? Sure. Every white boy in the 80s sported corn rows, right?

I guess some occasions just call for fancy.

And yet, he's still adorable. Not that I'm biased or anything. Nope. Not me. A huge thank you to Frank Early over at Hitbyatrain for orchestrating the evening's entertainment from a hotel room, nonetheless. You rock, Frank!!
