Happy Pearl Harbor Day

Well, in accordance with some suggestions, I have tried to modify the comments section on my blog so that anyone may post comments, and not just people with their own blog sites. Try it out and see if it works.

The Wilsons should return from their ski trip today, undoubtedly with stories of drunken revelry and fun in the snow. This also means that Crack should be reuniting in short order for some more excursions into the world of musical vandalism.

The Mono Ensemble is gearing up for the holiday season with a show at the Carousel Lounge on Dec. 17th and our annual Festivus performance at Wilson manor on the 18th. We are looking forward to seeing our friends, family, and anyone who inadvertantly wanders onto this blog site at these two shows. For those of you who have never heard the Mono E, I would say that we are a little difficult to describe. We have a few fairly structured songs and some covers, but we kind of specialize in stream of consciousness rock (as opposed to Crack, who specializes in unconscious scream rock). The Mono Ensemble has good gigs and a few not so good gigs, but we all love music a whole lot, and if u love it too, u will have fun if u come to see us (I think). Playing with the Mono E is like being on a sports team where, on a good day, all the players can anticipate each other's moves b/c they've been playing together a long time and love the game. Playing with Crack is like playing on a team with a bunch of thugs who are willing to beat up the other team's players just to get a reaction from the crowd.

How do people find things to rant about on these blogs? Wanna know what's pissing me off right now? It's been raining quite a bit, and all of these leaves keep getting tracked into my house by myself and me dog. I have a ceramic tile floor, so it's easy to sweep, but a day after I've swept, it's back to looking like the inside of a hamster cage. Anyway, I don't see how ranting about this is going to help.

Another Texas blogger, you know there are lots of them? I work in the criminal justice system, and found your comment about her b/f beating himself up funny as all get out. Good luck.

Are you the only member of your family with musical skills? What skills do your siblings possess?

I'm only posting as anonymous so I don't have to register with blog. Something is still different in regards to posting comments on your blog and the League's.

I loved the analogy between Mono E and Crack as well as the Mono E description. One thing I think both bands have in common (besides your membership) is that they follow this creed:

"Begin with the possible and move gradually towards the impossible. So what is possible?" - Guitar Craft Aphorism (Robert Fripp)

I only have one sibling, my brother, Ryan (http://melbotis.blogspot.com/), and I would say that his primary talent, other than his ability to beat up on smaller people with Tae Kwon Do, is his ability to draw, closely followed by a somewhat formidable ability to write. I just wish he would get off his ass and actually complete a comic so we could try to get one published...
