ARE YOU READY TO ROCK????

i am ready to ride – i ain’t ready to fall… but you don’t get it… (“Spitting in the Wind” – The Showdown)

Man, i’m reverting back to my rock roots i suppose… first Norma Jean, now The Showdown… and Maylene is right around the corner… boy, i’m fixin to stage dive or something…

THE WORSHIP ROCKSTAR OFF STAGE

Here are two conversations that i recently had which are related but took place at least two weeks apart…

So they’re going to join our small group.
Looks that way
You don’t seem happy
Promise me you won’t tell them that i write music reviews.
Why?
He sings onstage at church
So.
So, the first thing they’ll ask is what i think of his singing.
No they won’t.
Sure they will, then they’ll ask for a “hook-up”
you’re crazy


[to them] barrY writes about music
[to me] you know I had to tell them
(mild chuckling)
Oh really?
yep, i do…
yeah, he writes for a big website and he even writes articles for a big magazine.
cool. So what do you think about [his] singing?
(mild chuckling)
ha ha, really though, that’s cool we should talk, maybe we can set something up and you can use your connections and get us on the inside track. . .
interesting thought.

people are so predictable… sometimes it’s sad…

AND NOW IT’S TIME FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT

Hey here’s something cool… inReview.net, the site formerly known as cMusicWeb, has been running a pretty interesting series called Most Spun 2006… basically, they solicited several artists, writers and industry-type folks and asked which five albums they listened to the most last year… included in the mix are Doug Van Pelt, Robin Parrish, Bebo Norman, Andrew Osenga and more… oh, and, yeah, i did manage to get my list included as well… but, i kid you not, i thought the series was cool even before my list was a part of it… now, check that out, give them lots of traffic and make them believe it was worth including little ole me…

okay… back to the grind… thank you for my intermission…
