Too Late for Halloween: Basementcast #8

People are nuts.  Why would you ever want to grow a 1,725 pound pumpkin?  I suppose so that you could say that you did.  Apparently pumpkin growing is like horse breeding, you gotta get the right seed from a sire that has the right genes.  The seed for this big beauty came from a former world record holder.    The funny thing about this picture, besides the obvious, is that it came from northeast Ohio, about 30 miles from where I grew up.  In case you ever wondered what it was like growing up in sl-Ohio, I can tell you it was just slightly more exciting than this picture.  Depending on your point of view (world record pumpkin growers excepted), something a little more exiting is the new basementcast.  It weighs a whole lot less, you can fit in your pocket, and you won’t need five guys to help you with it.

    Velez Manifesto!!! Love to have the album—somehow lost all my Velez tapes many years ago. One fun fact about the band, Velez was a national finalist in CMJ’s “America’s Best” talent search and their song Dark Clouds was one of nine songs on the 1987 compilation “Epic Presents The Unsigned–Volume II”, which was billed as a sample of the thriving alternative music scene booming from coast to coast.
