Frontalot Tour Diary Day 1: On The Road

Hello again from the wonderful world of touring!  I am presently on tour with MC Frontalot, the father of nerdcore hip-hop, and we are stopped for the evening at an Econolodge in the lovely Shenandoah Valley, where the gas stations and fast-food restaurants stretch as far as the eye can see.  Today was a mostly uneventful travel day.  We started in Staten Island at the home of sometime Frontalot collaborator The Categorical Imperative, where we were treated to coffee, bagels and live chickens before heading off rather late.  Honestly, the day was mostly uneventful, even when it should have been full of vigor.

After that it was drive, drive, eat, drive, eat, drive, unload.  Soon it will be time to sleep.  Until tomorrow, faithful readers, be well and try not to have giant farmer nightmares.
