Local Music Showcase Wrap-Up

Pictorially, you've seen below what music acts I caught over the course of Local Music Showcase. It was a crazy, fun time. However, I wasn't prepared for the auditory overload that began to set in around the third venue. Still, I managed to have a good time and keep warm against the suddenly chilled night air.

On Sunday, Matt and I were the first set of presenters for the Chautauqua County Music Awards & Hall of Fame Show. I had never presented before, and felt a little deer-in-headlightish when we got on stage. I'm told we did just fine even though we were flying by the seat of our pants while we waited for the award envelopes to appear for us to read. The mash-up bands all were awesome! Plus, I dug that the show was over and done with in a 2-hour period.

For other's experiences and lots of videos of the music performances, check out the two threads from the Chautauqua AMP below:

Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
