TIS FORECASTLE WEEK! Are ye pumped? Are ye ready? Rock, Blues, Country, Americana, Hip Hop, DJs, and assorted amalgamations thereof are about to invade the Commonwealth. Being a Kickass Kentuckian, I know you are prepared to welcome our guests. As the Great Kentuckian Hunter S. Thompson observed, which is relevant here chirrens, "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

Well, as an old pro, I am ready for the weekend!
