  • Miracle on I-81

    We take multiple multi-week trips a year. The first two weeks of February happened to be one such trip. Before we left, the south got hit with the big ice storm. Northerners were making fun of people in Atlanta and Birmingham (even I recalled some locals panicking from 1/4″ of snow on a […]

  • Abby Ahmad at The Living Room

    Abby Ahmad was at The Living Room last night. I only learned about the show a few days ago and immediately changed our plans (from doing nothing, we need some of those nights too every once in a while). Unfortunately, it was a 10pm start time, but you do what you have to […]

  • The Book of Mormon on Broadway

    I’m a Scorpio, in practically every way. The most important way is that my birthday just recently passed. I love comedy in nearly every form. When we watch sitcoms on TV, and I laugh at everything truly groan-worthy, Lois always says: “You’re so easy!” It’s true, I am. I don’t live under a […]

  • Carbon Leaf at Sullivan Hall

    Last night was our first time at Sullivan Hall. It was also our first time seeing Carbon Leaf. Both of those are thanks to our love of Delta Rae, who opened for Carbon Leaf. I hadn’t listened to any of their music before the show, so I truly had no idea what to […]

  • Dickey Betts at City Winery with Kristy Lee Opening

    Sometimes dreams do come true. Sometimes they don’t live up to expectations, but even then, the dream coming true is often enough reward. Such was the case last night, for me. I grew up listening to what many people now call Classic Rock. There were so many great bands that I always feel […]

  • Installing CrashPlan on a PogoPlug Pro

    There are critical updates embedded in this post, added on 9/3/2011, all preceded with Update:. You can apply those instructions separately if you’ve already completed the rest of this installation. Updates will be marked with End Update to allow for multi-paragraph updates. I will strike-through the parts that were replaced, so that you […]

  • Steff Leal at Rockwood Music Hall

    We were going to see the 8pm set at Rockwood Music Hall last night. We often check out the set before, to raise our chances of getting seats. This time, the artist we were going to see at 8pm was promoting the 7pm and 9pm sets. That raised my hopes that the 7pm […]

  • Is Rudeness a Necessary Evil?

    Send to Kindle(Wow, I just finished writing and unsurprisingly, I created a monster. If you can’t make it through the entire post, I forgive you, but you might want to peek at the last few paragraphs for one proposed solution to the problem…) There is a recurring theme in too many of my posts, rude […]

  • Abby Payne at Rockwood Music Hall

    We’ve seen Abby Payne once before, briefly, at a Benefit Concert. I had only good things to say about her (in particular, her keyboard skills). Still, since she was one of a cast of thousands and sang lead on only one song, I admit that her name didn’t register with me as someone […]

  • To Blog or not to Blog…

    Introduction and Caveats My strong instinct was/is not to write this post. I often regret overruling my gut and I suspect this time won’t be different. This is a 100% opinion piece (obviously, every post is just my opinion, but this doesn’t even contain the normal factual parts like posting a set list, […]
