Do The Right Thing

Found this site today and think it's worth sharing. Tonebender Products will be sending a package or two. I hope you all will do the same. We have it good here while somebody else is takin' care of business. Please take time to check this out and support our troops. Whether or not you agree with the circumstances, you really should care about our folks who are doing their duty for US. http://anysoldier.us/index.cfm

Thanks !

Saw BuzDawg at Tumbleweeds last Saturday night. The place was packed with the regulars, irregulars, big & talls, and curvy patrons. The band had 'em dancin' & drinkin' with some great tunes from the Hooterbreaker/Loser archives and some great new surprises. Pics from the show are on the Tonebender site under the "Sponsored bands & Other Friends" Link. http://tonebender.net - Cool Deal, Lucille.

The hot new rock & roll conglomerate from Huntington Beach "BuzDawg" has booked some gigs in the OC area. See them at Tumbleweeds Bar & Grill at Beach Blvd. & Atlanta one block from the beach in HB on Saturday November 20th 9pm - closing. Be there or be square. If this show isn't entertaining in one way or another I'll eat my hat...

Your Moment of Zen (Part 2)

Why bother? Why do we continue to pick up an instrument and flog away on it for hours? What do YOU get out of it? What is the real "deep stuff" reason for your attaction to the instrument(s) that you play? I'm giving you a place to post your thoughts, both jokingly and serious about WHY you do it. Use the comments link at the bottom of this post.

Some of us started playing at a parent or relative's urging. Some wanted to "be cool" and impress the opposite sex, ie; get chicks. Some were curious as to what the big deal was all about when they saw someone else playing and the enjoyment it gave them. Many of us found out what it was all about and couldn't put it down after that. Some continue to play and really don't exibit much emotion one way or the other. This is what generated this post in the first place. I can't figure out why some folks play and not get the same benefit from it that a lot of the rest of us do. I know that it's probably a little different for each person, but I'm curious none the less.

"USA, USA, USA" - Homer Simpson

Is this a great country or what? At least the months of lawsuits will be somewhat less dramatic since Kerry did "the honorable thing" and conceded this morning. George probably said "this is cool".
The polling place guys told me to beat it after a couple of elderly onlookers had some of their medication interact with the Coors Lights that I sold them during my "election jam session". I had some requests to bring a big piece of linoleum next election for break-dancing.

Nelson Rockefeller was Ford's VP.

Who was Ford's Vice President?

Vote early and often - I hit 5 polling places between work and home!
Gonna stop by the one at the church by my house and sell cold beers out of an old cooler, play a little guitar, wear my "Pat Paulsen For President" T-shirt, and talk loudly with my invisable friend Matt. I'll let you know how this works out....
