April 5th - Thao & Get Down Stay Down @ Launchpad
My plan for 2013 was to actively try to attend more music events then I had been seeing. While I have been really scanning and watching the calendars I just have not made it to the shows I planned. Some were because they sold out or I ended up otherwise obligated at the same time. But then there are the ones that I just didn’t go to. No reason, just Lamed Out. I also forgot to document a...

schlomo: jayparkinsonmd: Many people have gone through this process of self-discovery at various ages. Sometimes it hits us when we’re 20, 36, or 86. But each person I’m sure stumbles through it differently. Here’s what I discovered and what’s helped me: Write a personal mission statement and keep it open in your browser and read it slowly every morning. Revise it as often as you see fit and...
1000 Burpies in January.
I have decided to partake in this madness. I will some how try and document all of them too. Just to make it more stupid. In case you want to know what the hell a burpee is.
Tagging Live Music.
This year I am going to try to keep track of all the bands I see. Large or small. I think it will be fun to look back on at the end of the year and see who I saw and where. Maybe it will make me pick up the pace and see some shows I would not usually see. Maybe not. I will use the tag #LiveMusic. I will include bands I see when my band is playing. Seems fair. Lets see how it goes.
Consider Pandora and Spotify, the streaming music services that are becoming...– Articles: Making Cents | Features | Pitchfork (via schlomo)
8 more sleeps until Christmas.
That means I have about 7 days to figure out how to not ruin the holiday for everyone else while trying to not completely implode at the same time.
I should be in the movies.
A couple days ago my co-worker asked me if I had ever been in a movie. I said “No, but I think I will make it happen.” So now I begin trying to figure out how to be an extra in a movie. My goal will to be more then a person in a crowd in the background, but less then a speaking part. Lets see how this goes.
New York, why not.
Jetblue has finally come to Albuquerque. They are offering $66 flights to NY. I know what I am doing in May!
Hi My Name Is Dandee
Hi my name is Dandee. I thought you looked interesting so here I am talking to you. How exactly does a 38 year old man make new friends? I can have a conversation with just about anyone. I have stories to tell and more importantly love listening to yours. To add to the difficulty I tend to hang out in loud and dark environments with people 10-15 years younger then me. Of course, having...
I live hear and I love here, I have done everything here. But these days I consider trading this cool mountain breeze for the rumble and hustle of the city.

Georgia on my mind.
Its hard to believe that 11 short days ago I started off on a 200cc vintage style scooter to conquer the US landscape from Coast to Coast. There are so many stories to tell and thank yous to be made. But right now its all still swirling around in my mind providing me with a grin like I haven’t had in a long time. The trip was not without its problems. Holes in pistons, crashes and being...
