Five for December 23rd:
Short week. Tomorrow is a half-day and will be, as is the tradition, a total blow-off. Hanging around, eating food, and leaving early to meet up at Lisa’s mom’s to kick off the festivities.
Practice. Ran and timed the whole NYE cover set front to back last night for the first time, and it sounded great, despite the absence of bass guitar on some songs. Final, all-hands-on-deck practice is this coming Sunday, after which there’s no turning back. We either have it or we don’t.
Iron Maiden rules. Here’s an example of how to correctly and professionally take advantage of what some bands might see as a shitty situation.
Cool stuff. New issue of The Skateboard Mag, box of donuts at work, then & now SF earthquake photos, pancakes at Chris’ with Lisa and Jane, Marcus “the Magnificent” Malone, Pussy Riot freed, hand-delivered homemade xmas cookies from Anna.
10 to Spin. Seth did a Blind Eyes Christmas edition of “10 to Spin” over at Speakers in Code. Good tunes, and comes with a free download. Check it out.
