    Re: Battle of the Bands sheepishness?

    Thanks, Burl. We're currently sitting in 4th place, with a good shot at making the final if we can hold our spot until Monday. That'd be grand.

    Re: Battle of the Bands sheepishness?

    It's mostly traditional Irish, but with a bunch of my Irish-y originals, and a handful of choice Van Morrison, Johnny Cash, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly covers. I'm not into pillaging the...

    Re: Battle of the Bands sheepishness?

    Thanks, Leo. That's what I figured. After nearly 20 years as a professional musician, BOBs are still a little embarassing. But exposure is good.

    Battle of the Bands sheepishness?

    Am I wrong for entering my band Doolin Rakes into an international, online battle of the bands? I feel dirty, but I don't see how it can hurt. How do my HT music experts feel about competitions like...

    Re: Austin City Limits and/or Soundstage on PBS

    Classic. I gig Sunday nights, and DVR ACL as a matter of routine. Never heard of the Avett Brothers and am now a fan. They remind me some of the Old 97's with that conversational lyricism. Is there a...

    Glucosamine allergy?

    Quick question: I've developed soreness in my wrists while typing or playing my guitar (not good for my lines of work). I've had glucosamine suggested by several friends with similar issues. I got...

    Re: What happened here?

    I just checked in to HT for the first time in who-knows-how-long (well, Mel, I suppose). Not sure why. I Facebook regularly, but am too dim to really understand Twitter. At any rate, I'm glad to be...

    Re: Chinatown drug shooting

    As someone who works late in Chinatown, I can only say that the fact that cold blooded murderers with assault weapons are gunning people down in the streets makes me proudly unsettled.

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    "A Short History..." is all I've read, but he came highly recommended and now I see why. I look forward to whatever of his I pick up next, which will probably be "Thunderbolt Kid," as it comes from...

    Re: Just Started Blogging for Pay...

    I think it's based on how many views I get. I'm doing mostly arts and entertainment in Honolulu. And I would guess it's a "group" blog, as there are a number of other writers on the site.

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    Just finished "A Short History of (Almost) Everything" by Bill Bryson. I dug it, but am now started on "Jingo" by Terry Pratchett to indulge in some considerably lighter reading.

    "A Short History of Almost Everythin" by Bill Bryson. Fascinating stuff, layman's science with a scence of humor.

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    Foucault's Pendulum, Umberto Eco. Dense and ornate, but interesting. I've been reading it for weeks, a few pages at a time with a smoke on the patio.
