This morning I got the coffee made, toasted a bagel, drugged up the fluffball, and sat down at the PC.  Ok, maybe it wasn't morning anymore - I needed some sleep.  Hey, it's been a long week...  Anyway, with half the day gone, I wanted to get moving and get some shit done. 

Checking in to the Myspace home page I see a "New Friend Request".  Nothing strange there.  So I look to see what's waiting.  There's one new request and a bunch of old ones, mostly bands I haven't checked out yet.  Ok, maybe it's time to go through these.  I recently dropped a bunch of people off the friends list (mostly female loose-ends, coach) and wouldn't mind adding a few back.

But let's see just just how random these add requests can be.  Sticking to the highlights:

A Madrid-based musician with a project named "Stradivarious".  It would be neo-classical shred, with lots of Malmsteen trubutes, if the guy could play guitar.  And he made the Judas Priest instumental cover sound like plugged-in Muzak.  Next!

A veteran local rock band with solid originals on the playlist.  Influences are said to include "Rolling Stones, Velvet Revolver, ZZ TOP, The Doors, Mountain, Alice Cooper, CCR, The Kinks, Aerosmith, Johhny Winter".  Addded!

A 40-ish mom from an hour away in NC.  Cute little anime face.  I'm sure she's nice.  Doesn't cost me anything to click 'accept'.

A ten-person co-ed random jam band from Charlotte, that seems to play mostly around Raleigh campus joints.   Seriously???  "What started out as a Drum Circle soon became..."  Stop right there.  Sit down and write a damn song, then get back to me.


Coming soon!  Private Nut part 3: A Day Off

[p.s. the album mentioned below seriously rocks]
