Morning! How was yours? Ours was good. Let's get to it.

Friday Afternoon at Sugar Hill Studios

Chris Gray spent Friday afternoon at the Abbey Road of the South and worked up this narrative slideshow to prove it.

Summer Sin Party at Warehouse Live

Dog leashes? Check. Burlesque dancing? Check. Gratuitous lesbianism? Check. Electrical tape on top of areola? Check. Lots of photos? Yep, that too.

Swami Ramdev at George R. Brown Convention Center

Here in town to lead a five-day yog science camp and to announce the creation of a center in Rosenberg, the world's most famous yogi had thousands of acolytes breathing and posing over the weekend. I know I promised a more thorough report last week, but to be perfectly honest I skipped most of the last two days. Seven hours of sitting around and listening to a language I didn't understand was more than enough. I guess I had expected more follow-along technique and less lecture. It was cool watching the spritely swami hold court, but I think I'll just stick to the DVDs from now on.

Chicago Cubs vs. Houston Astros

The 'Stros won a couple (and lost one) to start the second half of the season. Also, they made a few roster changes, but they're not rebuilding, if that's what you were thinking.

Time to get this week going. More in a bit. -- Keith Plocek

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
