Last week’s Pinhook show
Feb 20th, 2009 by lo-budge

This new theme is coming along very nicely.  I’m going to post a bunch more pictures to the “cycling banner” on the top of the page so new surprises should show up there randomly.

Last Saturday night I played at the Pinhook here in Durham with Fever and The Fallin’ Rain, the band I recently joined.  The drummer and I are new to the band, the other three members have played for a couple of months together, and two of them have played together much longer than that.

It was a fun show and nice to be the first band up (out of five) so we could play our five songs and get off the stage and watch everybody else.  I wasn’t too confident in playing this show since I had practiced about four times before it, but it was worth doing to remember the ups and downs of playing live.  We’ll be playing in Wilmington next month and we’re sure to have more gigs lined up soon.

I guess I’ll need to add a new tab to this page as we start recording more … we have plans for a three song demo to record next month.

New theme of death
Feb 19th, 2009 by lo-budge

After much research, I have decided to go with this WordPress theme, Atahualpa, which is also the name of the last emperor of the Inca Empire, according to Wikipedia.

This photo of me at my last day in cubicle land at Adobe in Seattle taken in 2004 sums up how I hope this new theme goes:

cubicle_life2

Good luck?  What kind of a message was that after I got let go from my 18 month contract?  Oh well, things could have been worse.  Adobe seems to be having more problems now than in 2004.

Atahualpa was apparently killed by the Spaniards after they used him to control the empire, and then the empire was over.  I hope this theme does not follow a similar path.

I will soon replace the “natural berries” pictures that are currently featured on each page with something much more lo-budge.  And I’m working on the Random page.

The tabs look a lot better in IE, Chrome, and Firefox now, though.  This is the theme I was looking for!

Not Me added
Feb 10th, 2009 by lo-budge

I added the “Not Me” page, which isn’t much of an accomplishment since I’m not on any of those songs.  But if somebody out there could make a video for “Sigler’s Wisdom”, I would greatly appreciate it.  It could be the best short movie clip ever.

In other news, I have started rehearsing with a band here in Durham called “Fever and the Fallin’ Rain” and we are debuting our 5-piece 7-song set together at the Pinhook this Saturday night.  I hope I can remember all of the chord changes after three rehearsals.

And my bowling league team “Sparely Legal” beat out the “Jive Turkeys” tonight which was exciting.  I bowled a 144 on one game which was maybe a personal best.
