And that’s my biggest problem; I just don’t get it. 😉
On a serious note there has been a recent trend with this blog that I have not figured out, nor have I figured out how to defend against. It seems that spammers have gone from flooding the comments to linking to posts. What does that get them? Higher Google rankings? Can anyone out there help me out?

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
Don’t fight a fact, deal with it.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
You Say EscovEEdo, I Say EscovAHdo
I’m just glad it didn’t get called off again.
Last night I fought my way around I285 to make it into Decatur early enough to queue up for a decent spot for the Alejandro Escovedo show. The show was fantastic, consisting of two men (Escovedo and another) with their acoustic guitars. At one point in the show they left the stage to play three songs at different locations within the room. We were also treated to a little storytelling about the “old” days of touring the southeast.
In the crowd I saw hashers (Redneck Mutha and Mary Sidney — whose hash name I do not know), EAVBuzzers (I definitely recognized MRice’s husband), and local business owners (noticeably Warren from Decatur CD).
As an added bonus the food I ate at Eddie’s Attic was delicious. I consumed three “sliders” (one bison, one tilapia, and one fried chicken) along with some sweet potato french fries.
If you are bummed that you didn’t get to see the sold out show, Escovedo mentioned that he will be back to Atlanta with the full band in the May/June time frame to support the album he is putting out this summer.
I Asked The Right Questions… At The Wrong Time
Following the Escovedo show I drove back to East Atlanta to attempt to revive my concert photography by seeing Gringo Star at The EARL. I thought that my timing couldn’t be better as I arrived around 10:30pm and it appeared that the stage was being set up with Gringo Star’s drum kit. It felt suspiciously wrong however because there were only about eight people in the room (all “hipsters” smoking cigarettes to their hearts’, and my entire body’s, discontent). I decided to inquire about the night’s lineup at the ticket desk, and sure enough there were three bands on the bill and the one setting up was the second. Seeing how I’d already seen a concert, I had no desire to stand amongst the smokers, and that it was a Thursday night — requiring me to get up for work this morning — I exited the building thus pissing away $8.
I suppose that I should have asked the question about the night’s lineup before paying my money.
That’s A Nice Free Shout-Out; Wish It Had Been For InsideThePerimeter.com
While listening to the most recent Coverville podcast a guy called in to make a request. His voice message went like this…
This is some name in Decatur, Georgia here at Sweet Melissa’s restaurant…
Nothing like a little free advertising.
Tonight, Tonight, Whoa-Ho
Theater season starts tonight! But first, I’ll be getting my brisket and beer on at the Euclid Avenue Yacht Club.
I’ll Never Understand Survivor
Here’s your spoiler warning…
WTF? Why would you vote out someone like
Troy Joel so early in the competition — especially if you think that you might have a challenge during which he can go mano-a-mano with James?
I’m also completely done with Cerie! All of the reasons why I disliked her the first season she played poured into my mind last night as I watched the episode. How she is/was able to convince people to change their votes to suit her astonishes me. Is she like a high school guidance counselor in real-life? That’s the only profession that I’ve encountered that hands out as much bad advice.
Next week we get to see Penner’s leg get amputated! Seriously, there are many reasons I didn’t go into medicine so I didn’t really appreciate CBS giving us the up close and personal documentary of Penner getting stitches. I don’t care that it was shot by infrared cameras, I didn’t like it. We also get to see one of the “Fans” get duped by Ozzie’s false idol. My theory is that since Ozzie was stupid enough to tell people that he found the real Immunity Idol this information will get leaked to the kid that found it. Hopefully (for me) we’ll also get to see Cerie get the boot.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
