This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Shake your head as the world just nods away.

I just remembered one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me. It happened so long ago (about 1995) but I was just reading through some chatter on a music mailing list and it came back to me.

I had been listening to a great band called echolyn. I discovered their music while digging through a discount bin at a local used cd place. All I found was a two song sampler and that blew me away. I picked up the full disc, "as the world" and soon I was a huge fan. Later I got copies of their earlier cds that were out of print and one person was kind enough to inform me of how to get a rare original copy of their e.p. "... and every blossom" a four song followup to their album "suffocating the bloom".

I had their home phone number!

I called and talked to Brett Kull the guitar player who said he's be glad to send me a copy of the cd if I'd send them a check for the cost. They only had about ten extras left and he said he'd go ahead and send the cd instead of waiting for the check to arrive. So cool! At one point he yelled over to a couple of other guys in the band and I remember thinking "cool, the whole band must be there."

I received my copy of the cd, which I still have.

Of course you can enjoy two of the songs off that e.p. and that's half of them!

As well as samples from their other cds.

Its not often you get to call up a favorite band, talk to them personally and buy a cd from them over the phone. So I would say that was a good day.
