Lizzie thinking Tessa makes  it look a lot easier than it is.

Lizzie thinking Tessa makes it look a lot easier than it is.

This issue is dedicated to the memory of Al Rubin. Al was a Madison based booking agent and I met him back in 1996 when Maximum Ink started up. Al was one of the first advertisers and became a member of the Madison Musicians Guild. He was already in his seventies. But time moshes on and I can’t recall when he stopped advertising, or what became of him. While going through some archives last month I ran across his name and tried to locate him on the internet only to find he’d passed a few years back, he’d lived well into his nineties. I’ll miss Al, he was a good guy. See a longer obit in Rock Star Death Notices.

Joey B. & Kelli Banks: They both have November birthdays and will be celebrating at the Knuckledown Saloon on Friday, Nov. 2 with a seventies themed Vo5. Joey B subs on drums for Vo5 so come on down to the dance party!

Max Ink Fantasy Football: Here we are at mid-season and the Funkee GreenBay Junkee (Joey B. Banks) and Legion of Doom (Timmy Keyes) have made moves and improved their teams to 4-4 and tie Hey Bruh It’s Nikko, as the Malas Monsters (6-2) have dropped the lead to the Madcity Rokkers (7-1).

Cho-Mama Bombers and Dinnertime Dinerstein (Uncle Steve) are hovering just above the bottom at 3-5 and Brewcity Brawlers (Uncle Dan) is the anchor at 1-7. I believe there was a bet between Nikko and the Brawlers about the loser wearing a dress and making a video on youtube, we’ll have to see how that turns out.

We’ll see who’s in the lead next month, but if you would like to follow the league go to:

Adventures with Nikko and Lizzie: Lizzie is a world traveller once again heading to Quebec this month attend a professional figure skating tour featuring her “ship” favs Scott & Tessa. I’m not sure what will happen if they come out of the closet as a couple. Otherwise, the UW is keeping her pretty busy along with her new job at a clothing retailer.

Nikko and I have started to read Plato’s Gorgias together. His interest in philosophy is grown quickly and the book fits perfectly with what is happening today in our political system. Gorgias is license free so it’s out there on the interwebs if you care to read along.
