Now on to Saturday….

So some of you may already know, but my day job is working at the Main Library downtown in the Children’s Department.  I help out storytimes, do special programs and whatnot – And this program just so happens to to tie together my work life with my ‘everything outside of work’ life very well.

I started a new band called the Yellow Crayons.  Becky (of Peace Trout) plays guitar, Erik (of Civilization) plays keyboard, James (of Vultures and Casey Jones) plays bass, and I play drums.  Saturday at 2pm in the Children’s Department at the Main Library we’re performing for a program called Rock School. We play songs, talk about our instruments, and then children are invited to come play the instruments.  Should be fun and crazy.  The program is free, but only open to children 6-12 and their caregivers – so get your little brother, sister, niece, neighbors kids – whomever – and I’ll see you Saturday.

Then Saturday at night…

The Followup Update…

Once the store aspect is open and running smoothly, I’ll be getting the other great things scheduled and set up.  This is what’s on my list to get set up next.

* As mentioned in previous posts, Steve Sikes is working out a freeschool schedule – that should be alive and kicking by mid-late October. 

* Although the community room space isn’t nearly complete, I’m talking with James Shanks, owner, of the new and neighboring Viva Computers (located in the SPAR building actually) about procuring some hot, and local, deal on Wi-Fi. 

* I called the clinic yesterday to make sure they’re still on board for the free STD testing and they are.  I’ll be meeting with them next week at the space to see how we can accommodate them for a few hours once a week.

* Coffee. Yum.  I need to shop around for a big ol percolator. Donations of ‘hey, we got a percolator we don’t use’ are much appreciated. Get in touch.  Percolator donation by Laurel Lee will be picked up shortly.  Thanks Laurel!

And to not forget we’re a record / book store… 

>>  New store construction playlist..

* Old Growth “s/t” CD – Local, who now resides in Portland, John Magnifico belts out some great rock tunes great for building a wall.

* Lemonheads “Hate Your Friends” CD – Garage rock played at hardcore punk speed. Whenever I hear the song “Uhhh” I think of the Pink Razors covering it, so that’s one more reason to smile.  Not for fans of the later Lemonheads stuff, but good painting music.   I actually got this at the local library, which is Inertia’s largest competitor for CDs – I love it!  The Jacksonville Public Library has so many good albums. Please check out what they have.

* Ten Volt Shock “6Null3” CD – Noisy buzz saw guitars to go with my circular saw.  This German band does some serious rockin’ on this record.  Wonderfully noisy post hardcore.

* Tubers “s/t” CD – Total classic in my mind. Toured with in Europe and love every song.  In fact, just go here and listen to them.

* Dead Friends “s/t” Cassette – Chris, from Merkit, has a label called Drugged Conscience based in Naples FL. That’s what this cassette release was done on. Dead Friends is Gainesville’s take on early 90’s hardcore ala Assfactor 4.  Super good.

>> And Reading list..

* On Subbing: The First Four Years by Dave Roche – Ok so I’ve read this before.  But when it came in I had to read it again.  Casual tone, but clear and concise.  Really funny, cute and often touching stories by a substitute teaching assistant. Short little entries on a day-to-day basis about subbing in on Special Ed classes. Some of the classes Dave, our friendly author, subs for include children with extreme behaviour problems or kids in wheelchairs/kids with severe handicaps. The writing is honest, earnest, and hilarious.  If you’re a punk rock/indie rock geek/nerd whatever you’ll love this. ” You get cute little drawings by the author’s friends and lots of entertainment – I’m partial to how the kids make fun of him and how often Dave gets kicked in the balls.

* My Brain Hurts by Liz Baille – A graphic novel about a group of teenage queer punks.  I’m not queer or in High School but it was still a good read.  It’s like they were your actual high school friends tho – pissing off the administration and taking care of each other when they get beat up.  Good dialogue, characters, and storytelling for sure.

Huey: The Spirit of The Panther by David Hilliard – Written by the chief of staff of the Black Panther Party, this book is a good insider view of the party’s beginnings.  It illuminates Huey’s use of not only the gun, but moreso the law as a gun. I got the this at the library too.

New stuff on the way!!!

July 5, 2007

I’m in Germany right now and coming home soon.  I’ll have a full post about tour at some point, although with many less photos than I would like since my camera was stolen in Bremen. 

Quickly though, as these internet cafe’s will eat your Euros – Touring Europe is amazing.  Every show had food for us and provided a place to stay. Lots of shows were at squats, sometimes for over 20 years old had these buildings been reclaimed.   Many of the shows were in Germany, and they were all amazing.  The Netherlands shows were both great, one of which was Thrashfest.  We played two shows in Northern Italy, traveling through the Alps en route.  These were very very small towns of amazing people who had a great time and made us feel very welcomed.  The first Italy show was at the towns community center, where we played to a bunch of children and people hanging out at what I think was the only bar in this village. Shows in France were great Lyon, a city I am not remembering the name of right now, and Paris.

Throughout the whole experience I was meeting people I’ve talked to online, sold records, and traded records with for years – through the label and mailorder.  And I traded a bunch more records in my visits. That is not on this list of new items, but will be when I get home…

Essentially, touring Europe made me very excited about Jacksonville and full of new ideas to bring to it.  See you soon!
