      That's right! But I'm not talking about people...I'm talking about the band. I went to see their live taping at Austin City Limits last night. Very unique blend of blues, rock, and a dash of hillbilly. I liked it! The singers voice is really deep and sometimes almost raspy. They used a violin and banjo in some of their songs. They also brought a guest singer from their side project (Sweet Tea) to sing a song, which was fabulous. Although their musical performance was great, their stage presence was lacking. If you've ever seen the Austin City Limits show on PBS/KLRU, then you know that most of the singers tell how they got into the biz, give background on the songs, and/or multiple other things. She didn't even introduce herself or the other band members. Thank goodness the music was good enough to make up for that, and the constant stops to work on sound issues.

      All in all, if you are going ACL (the music festival), you may want to stop by and give them a listen. I think you might like them.

      PS - Don't listen to them on youtube. My friend listened to them on youtube before we went and said they didn't sound good. We got there and she changed her mind...said they were awesome. :-)

    • Things that make you go "hmmmmm"

      10 years ago

      Over the past two days I've been the passenger in someone else's car. This meant I got to pay good attention to the things around me. Here's a few of the things I noticed:

      1) Ninfas up north is closed. It's now a Mexican food restaurant. BUT their buffet has both Indian and Mexican food in it. I found this odd...

      2) Ellis and Salazar's north location is still open. I hate them and wish they'd close. Meh...

      3) In between I-35 and St. John amongst business and falling down ruins of other businesses and not so great neighborhoods stand a really nice stone built building. It belongs to a palm reader. I never see cars parked there. It's been there for quite a while, too (think years...not months). I don't know how they remain in business.

      4) At 7: 30 this morning, there was a homeless guy with a sign and requesting money at 290 and I-35. If he can wake up that early to hold a sign, isn't there a job out there for him somewhere?

      5) Why do people drive old police cars? They have the windows tinted like a cop cars, too. I know you can get good deals at auctions for old police cars. I, personally, wouldn't want to drive in an old po-po's car. Think of the people that must've threw up, bled, peed, etc. in it. No amount of cleaning will erase the thoughts/images of what I think happened from my mind. That's just me...

      Okay...so these are today's ramblings.

      On to another, happier note...tomorrow is Good Friday. If you have it off, be careful and enjoy the time away from work. For those of you that have to work, my apologies. :-( Hang in there!!!

      Happy Easter!!!!
      <3 & *s,

      Andy (L_I_V_I_N) and I went to his friend's annual crawfish boil in the north Dallas area last Saturday. It was a wee bit chilly, but we still had a blast. My abs were sore for about 3 days from laughing so hard. :-)

      Here are the guests of honor:

      I hope everyone had a great St. Pat's!
      Cheers,

      PS - Ladies, it was good seeing you! Sorry for wandering off with Christy, Anabel, Natasha & Jackie! I wish I would've hung around longer. Dang that beer...always makes me wacky. :-(

      I only blocked people left and right because I had no idea what the hell was going on.

      I will leave any comments that are made relevantly and with good taste. The rest are gone.

      I thought that wasn't fair. You guys are trying to be optomstic and realistic. I don't think people neg modding any of you is fair. I don't think I saw the neg modding of Dark or DiMono. I would counteracted that, too, if I had. I really appreciate you guys trying to make it home for everyone. Realistically, it's not gonna' be the same, but I think we should all make the best of what we've got. There are things I don't like about it, but they're really not big deals. I can adjust. I just wish more people were participating. :-( But, we can't force them. So...I'll enjoy the small group of people that are here! :-) Have to see the silve lining and all! hehe.



      I totally agree. I know it will never be the same, but I hope some of the LN people can at least come to mildly enjoy it around here and if nothing else enjoy the people.

    • monopoly_j

      10 years ago

      Thanks for all the counter mods! I know everyone is still upset about LN but when we talk about some people cannot accept it and lash out. I don't know why everyone started negging DiMono, Dark, and finally me.

      I guess we're just the opposition.


      I really hope people will come to find a home on this site even if its not the same.
