Thank you – "Jin Doh Xia"!

Justin Vernon definitely stole the show with… Read more »

Swine Flu: The ‘Not It’ Syndrome

Keith Bradsher’s article in the NY Times about what to name the Swine Flu is pretty comical, despite the seriousness of it all. It’s like a hot potato, and every country, religion, nationality, race, &culture is trying not to get burned. It reads like an Onion article! Government officials in Thailand, one of the world’s… Read more »

Playing at Drom tonight!

Finished soundchecking at Drom, where we’re playing tonight. The sound guy was a veritable CRAB, to put it politely. Good thing the space was rather unique and beautiful. Puts us in a peaceful & excitable state of mind, if that makes any sense. John was stuck in class still, so Aaron subbed in on drums…. Read more »
