2.1.2010, ftw

think i'm gonna take the train to sxsw. if nothing else, it'll give me something different to write about. the italian kid says hold off on rekkid reviews for awhile, so now i can devote myself wholeheartedly to reading the 800 page book i just started -- which, while interesting and generally well written, could have been better edited.

have three stoogedates on the table for consideration by the committee. hoping we can do all of 'em. the first one is far enough out that we have plenty of time to prac and break in new toonage. the unknown variable is the great tyrant's sked.

HIO "world tour dates" are announced. terry wants the three of us to do mallet guitar at the dallas show (for which hembree _might_ be available). need to have a drinkie-talkie (or drinkie-_eatie_-talkie) to discuss.

barman changed the landing page to the podcast from the link at the bar, so will probably see hits on the second episode take off. will probably do another episode while i'm home tomorrow, just 'cause. have toonage for two in itunes already. just have to add my crappy under-mic'ed narration.

train is the best way to travel - unless you're riding the rails between the major cities along the eastern seaboard. 'bout the only thing you're gonna see on that ride is a lot of illegally dumped tires, refrigerators and other crap.

took a train from philly to chicago for a work thing a couple years ago and it was great. west virginia is so beautiful. cleveland, not so much. shared a smoke with an amish cat, got a lot of good reading & beers in and was even able to bite my tongue when some lady behind me remarked "why would anyone ever want to live here?" while riding through the southside chitown hood. didn't have the heart to tell her that if poverty was a choice, it wouldn't exist.

have fun at SXSW. i believe the lemmy documentary is playing there one of the days. aside from all the ass-kissing from his peers, it looks alright.
