Distractions get some local love on the internet

we have been entered into a classic band 'competition' of all things.  ive never been in a battle of the bands, so this is a tad bit exciting, despite the fact that i dislike sports and usually boycott competing at any level.  so far the dirty deez are in 2nd with a fairly strong start.  track the results here.

in other news, sarah wrote us a nice one over at radio free chicago.

and just for fun.  a video from lincoln hall back in august when we opened for twin sister.  filmed by disenfranchised youth.
