John O, Blowing up

Big news for Chalk Dinosaur!

The Pittsburgh City Paper reviewed the band, you can check it out here! I feel like Pittsburgh has a pretty good city paper, or maybe that's just because I used to read Savage love...Either way, great news for John O.

Another Pittsburgh music blog reviewed one of John's newest songs, Crazy Folks! This is great, just unsolicited attention, and good attention at that. It makes me really happy to have been part of it, and still kind of part of it.

Harrison Wargo, from The Morning Light, who we opened for a little ways back, is playing with the band now. He left the Morning Light, I dont' know why, but he's perfect for these guys. He is more experienced, and has played more and bigger shows than any of us, and I think he just brings a lot to the table.

On top of these things, Matt booked a show with Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, who just happens to be one of my favorite bands to listen to right now. Maybe even my favorite. The show is on April 11th at The Brillo Box, it's going to be wild. I get to play guitar! 3 guitars/2 guitars and keyboard is what's happening. We'll see how it goes, 3 guitars, a little over the top, but they insist. Gonna be SICK NASTY.

David Shredder Update

Woah! Anonymous commented on a post I wrote back in September, and totally owned me. Hahaha, I'm going to say this wasn't a horrendous boof, seeing as this is a theme song from a TV show that came out 5 years before I was born, and only ran for 3 seasons. Does everyone else know that George's answering machine was modeled after the theme song to Greatest American Hero?! Either way, it actually makes George's machine EVEN MORE funny to me. I stand by my opinion that the David Shredder stand up was completely butt.

And I still can't even find mention of his name anywhere.

New Bike!

I have been lusting for this bicycle for quite some time now, and finally pulled the trigger on Friday. It is a 54cm (seat tube) glossy orange Windsor Clockwork. $320 dollars from which is an excellent website, they ship free within the continental US. Unbelievable. It left Texas on Saturday, so maybe I will have it by this week, wooooooooooo! Later.
