Brrrrrrrr…..the cold weather has been keeping many folks inside, even with the brief break of a balmy five degrees! Inviting sun…..frostbitten tootsies. The live music scene, however, is not slowing down and is, in fact, just starting to heat up. Behind the curtains local clubs, bars, concert halls and music festivals are busy sprucing up, prepping, and booking music that will make your ears dance.

Peter Ponders Fellowship and Friends

Ever since I was a young boy, I have had no trouble making friends. There are advantages to being easy going, nonjudgmental and able to compose a coherent (albeit brief) sentence without the need to use a script, (or at least, there should be advantages). For instance, I have around 5000 Facebook friends ™. These folks range from musicians through relatives, (crazy and otherwise), through plastic modelers all the way to former coworkers.

Robert Cronkite Presents The News of the Whirled

EDITORIAL

I hope I don’t come across as being an alarmist, but has anyone else noticed that everything seems to be so fucked up on this mudball right now, that it can’t possibly be happening.

I mean really.

This can NOT be happening.

The world in which we live in (Thank you, Paul) is going through an odd, disconnected from reality, square dance.

Could this be…AN ALTERNATE TIMELINE IN ANOTHER DIMENSION???

Or are we collectively the dumbest, childish, most self-absorbed, delusional, insecure, undereducated, barely literate, bigoted, apathetic, species in the entire known universe?

Maybe if we look at this logically.  Hmmm…Awww, what the hell.

Charlie passed today.

This is what it was like when he held sway over the L.A Basin.

Look for News of the Whirled on Friday….

It is the official end of the innocence…

Pat Blythe – Indie Week – Act I

Crikey!!!! Where the hell did the day go?!? It was a crazy week last week….Indie Week style.  Launch on Tuesday, judging (and shooting) on Wednesday, hitting the clubs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday…..oh my aching trigger finger…… I saw so many bands around the city I’ve lost count. There were others I missed simply because I couldn’t be in two (or three) places at once….not even Zippy can do that. I take no prisoners driving from one end of the city to the other. There is no time to waste and parking to be found. But what a great week…..so much incredible talent out there, local and international, and these music makers love what they do….so I hope they all keep on “doing it”. I ran into so many people I know, reconnected and also made some new friends. I just LOVE this!
