living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

The B52's? WTF?

I want to throw up. This year's headliner for the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon in Virginia Beach is The B52's. Really? Is that how bad things have gotten in America? After running my tail off for 13.1 miles, my reward will be hearing The B52's that night? Please forgive me if "Love Shack" is one of your favorite songs of all time. In hindsight 20 years later, is it really that good of a song?

This is a sentence of the RnR Web site: "Past performers include the Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, LIVE, Sugar Ray, Collective Soul, The Commodores, Hootie & The Blowfish, Journey, 3 Doors Down, INXS and many more!" Please note that this race starts with the word "Rock" ... not "Crap," but that's what I have this year. I really want my $25 back that I paid to get my wife into the post-race festivities. Can you tell that I'm a little bitter? At least there will be beer to drink.
