The Westword.com Blog Shortcut, July 23 Edition
We don't serve just one kind of blog at Westword.com. Try some different flavors.
Backbeat Online features a twist on the typical concert review -- a report from a show that would have featured Dizzee Rascal (pictured) if he'd actually shown up. Luckily, My Feral Kin, Married in Berdichev! and French Quarter did. The Cat's Pajamas explores the preppy side of grunge and warns Crocs wearers about the risks of getting a rubber shoe caught in an escalator. Think of it as a stairway to hell. Demver quizzes New Mexico Democratic Party head Brian Colon and considers the impact a preseason matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Green Bay Packers might have on Barack Obama's Mile High speech. Get your priorities straight: The Broncos must come first. And Cafe Society sends a valentine to Racines, answers a question about Pho 99, and tries to help a desperate person who just wants a decent Bloody Mary. Don't we all. -- Michael Roberts
