This Week's Shameless Budgeteer Plug: Biodiesel, novelist Jeffrey Woolf, Retribution Gospel Choir, Stuart Davis and Alt-Ctrl-Sleep

Life is good right now, real good. I'm overcoming a mild case of the flu (self-diagnosed) and Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure" is rockin' on the stereo -- what else could I ask for? (Well, besides a case of Brawndo*....)

Anywho, here's what I was up to this week:

"Cloquet Grad's Biodiesel Discovery Might Just Save the World" :: With (at least) two recent major studies decrying the benefits of some biofuels, Brian Krohn’s biodiesel discovery seems even more urgent today than it was two years ago when he first started his investigation.

"Everything In Its Right Place" :: Local author Jeffrey Woolf releases his debut novel, "Apples of Arcadia," his way — in true Duluth DIY style. (Order here.)

"CD Reviews: Retribution Gospel Choir, Alt-Ctrl-Sleep and Stuart Davis"
:: Reviewed this week: Stuart Davis' "Something Simple" and self-titled full-length debuts from Retribution Gospel Choir and Alt-Ctrl-Sleep. I really enjoyed all of these records, but one in particular, Davis', has been in constant rotation for a couple days now.

*Speaking of "The Thirst Mutilator" -- it's got electrolytes, you know -- rumor has it local hardcore outfit Number One Common (or however the hell they're spelling it these days) just got a sponsorship from this as-made-famous-in-"Idiocracy" energy drink. Congrats! (Monster trucks optional....)
