Days Aren’t Long Enough

I’ve been listening to the new Steve Earle CD, Washington Square Serenade, all weekend.  I’m digging it, if for no other reason that its a classic Steve Earle sounding album.  I was particularly drawn to this song.  I’d guess its for obvious reasons.   Day’s Aren’t Long Enough Another year has come and gone Another circle ‘round the sun…

What I’m reading

I’ve been wanting to read this for a while now, but never got around to picking it up.  I’ve heard some critiques of it and author, Lynne Truss, but I just finished her book on manners (or the lack thereof) called “Talk to the Hand: The Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six…

Here’s a nice article on Knoxville

I love my town. I moved here for college and never left, it just fits me. Its hard to explain to people, like my brother, that don’t really like Knoxville, but here’s a nice article from Frommer’s travel people. It was referenced in this week’s Metro Pulse but here is the full article. It makes…

Saturday Night at the Bijou

We’ve got 6th (!) row tickets for Scott Miller on Saturday night at the Bijou Theatre. Scott always brings his “A” game, but this is most certainly my favorite place around here to see a concert. Its a solo show, but I hear there’s going to be some special guests. Chris Knight is opening and…

Goodbye, Jane Magazine

I’m a little sad. The internet is a-buzz with rumors that Jane Magazine is folding. Conde Nast is saying it just isn’t fitting into the future plans. I was a subscriber to Sassy, of which, Jane Pratt was the editor prior to being the namesake of Jane Mag. I was a flagship subscriber to Jane…

Flight of the Conchords

Is anyone else catching on and becoming addicted to this show? I’ve heard them compared to a New Zealand Tenacious D, but I don’t like Tenacious D, so I can’t endorse that. They ARE a parody folk-rock band though, so I can see the similarities! Here’s a song from one of the shows: And here’s…

I just can’t describe it all

I went to Bonnaroo. I left on Thursday at about 1PM and I got home late Sunday night/early Monday morning. Other than that, its hard to tell you what happened. I saw a LOT of bands. I saw a LOT of people. I walked a LOT and sweat a LOT. But as I was discussing…

I had a fun-filled entertainment consuming weekend. #1

On Friday I went to the World Grotto to see Tim Easton, of whom I am a long-time fan, and Carrie Rodriguez, who tops my significant other’s *cheat list. A group of us had planned to go, mainly a couple of B’s friends (who fought over Carrie’s affection the entire week prior) and us, but…

My Cousin, Bachar, is in a band!

Yup. And I knew it, but I didn’t really know about them. I mean, when you find out that your favorite cousin is a lead singer, it automatically makes you a fan of the band. Even before you hear ’em. But they really are good. They’re called the Poisonville Rats. They are kinda punkabilly. I…

I’m going to Bonnaroo!

I’m getting pretty stoked about it too. I’ve never been. I can’t actually believe that! My favorite thing in the world is going to a music festival. Camping and live music is just me. I love it. It just never worked out that I could go. But this year, I’m there. I’ll be flying a…
