One of my favorite bands, @TheNewPornographers recently released a new album. I’m going to see them at the Union Transfer in Philadelphia soon.
NPR gave a sneak peek of what I should expect with this shortened version of their concert, played at the historic Brill Building.

I went to the grocery store today to buy ribs for a cookout. I generally like to buy ribs with the back membrane peeled away so I don’t have to go through the effort of doing it while prepping.
I haven’t purchased ribs from this grocery store before so I ask the butcher.
“Do the ribs have the membrane still attached to the back of the ribs?”, I ask.
To which the butcher repiles, “I have no idea. People ask me that all the time and I don’t know what they are talking about.”
If you don’t know what the membrane is and customers continue to ask about it then it’s your job to find out.
It doesn’t matter what field you work in. The only way to consistently knock it out of the park is to be hungry for knowledge.
Oh, and for the curious, here’s the deal with the membrane.
