Mynabirds/Barton Carroll show

September 11, 2010

We went to Seattle yesterday to see The Mynabirds and Barton Carroll.  Technically, they were the opening acts for Crooked Fingers (who kind of suck), so they only got to play a 45-minute set each.  But both of them kicked ass, which was quite a delight.  Lynn purchased Carroll’s CD for me, on account of I find the idea of purchasing swag directly from the artist kind of awkward (“Oh, I would like this CD, the one with your, the cashier’s, face on it.  Do you have change for a twenty in your wallet?”) and rightly so as I understand finger puppets were somehow involved in the transaction.

I’ve got another handful of mix CDs that I made and would like to share.  Who wants copies?  I promise this time I won’t wait three months before finally sending them out.

Remember a couple months ago when I asked (on my old blog and on Facebook) if anybody wanted to get mix CDs from me in the mail?  Well, I got distracted by the whole December thing, but I’ve finally got them ready.  I’ll be sending them out sometime next week.

And if you missed it before, it’s not too late.  Copies of four very nice mix CDs, made by me, can be yours for one easy payment of Comment On This Post.

Christmas Part 1

December 28, 2009

We get two Christmasses this year.  Christmas Part 1 was on the real Christmas, and Second Christmas will be in about a week and a half, when family comes to visit us here.

Part 1 was nice.  We made cookies on Christmas Eve, the kind you decorate with frostings and sprinkles.  On Christmas morning, we opened presents from each other and from people who are not visiting for Second Christmas.  Much wonderfulness was received from everybody.  Thank you, everybody!  Then Lynn took a nap in the afternoon.  What the hey?  Christmas napping?  I made her wake up, much against her will, for dinner time.  Dinner was Christmas Curry, made in the crock pot.  I had expected to serve it with restaurant stickyrice, but I guess even Chinese restaurants close on Christmas in Ellensburg.  It was a tasty meal, but sadly lacking in the pomp one expects from holiday feasting.  Then we spent most of the rest of the weekend watching movies, including waiting around in Yakima for hours (not fun) to get in to see Avatar.  Everybody and their grandmother was in that theater.  There was this one guy sitting right behind me who kept yelling “woah!” every few minutes.  It was pretty funny when the credits started to roll, and he was apparently blown away by the cast’s names, all “Wow, Giovanni Ribisi!”  And there was this one lady who was trying to save an entire row worth of seats for people who weren’t there yet.  “No, people who have been standing in line for 45 minutes, these seats are all MINE!  All of them!” What is wrong with people?

Up next: New Years! New Years is my favorite holiday. List Making Time. And then, Second Christmas, which is awesome. Not all of the immediate family is visiting, but it’s exciting to be seeing those who are. And January also brings… JURY DUTY! I have been summoned, bitches. Layin’ down some justice up in here.

Here is a thing that I made: (1.9 MB, about a minute and a half long)

If people seem interested, I will probably explain what the heck is up with it. For now, I would like feedback, and especially to know people’s general reaction to it. Building it was a fiddly process, so it’s difficult for me to step back and hear it as a whole. If it is crap and nobody tells me, I will spend a lot of time in the future making more crap :)
