1 August - Another Fall Show Booked

You lucky, lucky people. If you come to Luthiers Co-Op on October 22nd, you can see me play twice. The bill will be GDV3 from 7-8pm, Colony Motel from 8-9:30pm, and The Mistress Miriam Show from 9:30-11pm.

This show was Mistress Miriam's idea, and she arranged the booking over this past weekend. It'll be an October Birthdays Bash, as three of us in the band have birthdays that month. Fun, right?


Save the date, and we'll see you there.

8 June - Good News

The only social media I'm on these days is Twitter. I like it there, for the most part. It's better than some, despite having faults of its own. Obviously, duh. This is Earth. Nothing is ever going to be perfect. Even the planet wobbles.

My usual aim in here is to post about the upbeat side of life, and avoid the sort of socio-political commentary that I sometimes spout on Twitter (or in person, if you get me started). There is already too much negativity elsewhere, so I can at least try to keep things positive on my own damn blog. 

For example:

This past week, I traded some old pedals I wasn't using anymore for a Squier Telecaster they had at a local shop. It was supposedly used, but there was still the original protective clear plastic on the tuners, the neck plate, and the pickguard. Go figure. It's basically a beginner level guitar, but I wish there had been starter guitars this good when I got my first electric. It's a lot of fun, and it makes me smile. And that, my friends, is the point.

29 April - The Bow-Bow Bash

Very much looking forward to playing this event tonight. The Bow-Bow Bash is a fundraiser for a scholarship fund that was named in memory of a dear friend we lost several years back. He is sorely missed, but well remembered. (Image courtesy of the Northampton Arts Council)

1 March - Spring

Single digits overnight, but they call today Meteorological Spring.

I want to speak with the manager.

1 December - Meteorology

Here it is December. Today is the start of what they call Meteorological Winter, although there are some of us who insist on waiting for the Solstice before considering it official. But seeing how there are plenty of folks out there who always jump the gun on the Yuletide (retailers, for example), it's not surprising that there's a "modern" way of looking at the seasons. March 1st for Spring, June 1st for Summer, September 1st for Autumn, and now this. It's simple, I'll give you that. And I've had to scrape my car's windshield several times already, so I'm not gonna argue.

Besides, as of yesterday, which marked a full month since I deleted my account, my exit from Facebook has become permanent. I'm in a good mood. You want to start Winter today, go ahead. Means we're that much closer to Spring.
