I am still woefully behind with everything so I haven’t had time to surf the web for interesting stuff to share. There is some great news however, Ike Stubblefield is featured in a article in an upcoming issue of Keyboard Magazine and The Odd Trio’s Birth of the Minotaur debuted on th CMJ top jazz chart as the #1 newly added album. (I keep featuring them in my emails, y’all really need to go to see them, incredible musicians.They won’t be playing this month but will be back the last Thurs in August).
Does anyone out there have knowledge of Word Press web site software they would be willing to share with me? I have written and used hundreds of different types of software over the decades and have never come across any as obtuse, irrational and ill conceived as Word Press..I usually master any software in a matter of minutes or hours at most. I have spent days trying to figure it out and the only conclusion I can come to is it was created to keep web site designers in business.
On a lighter note and nothing to do with music, the crop of Olathe corn is now coming in to Krogers. In case you don’t know about Olathe corn it is the sweetest and takes the longest time to convert the sugar in it to starch. It is only available at Krogers as they have an exclusive on the entire crop, it comes from Colorado and with the bad weather out there it won’t be available long, don’t dawdle. In case you don’t know, the way to tell if corn is fresh is to pull open the husk and pop a kernel, if the juice is clear it is fresh and full of sugar If the juice is the milky it is older and most of the sugar has converted to starch.
Another thing, it is the time of year to make cuttings of azaleas, sasanquas and camellias.

This is another week where I need a clone to go to the shows I’ll miss. Wed. I’ll try to make the Farmer’s Market but will miss the last Kenosha Kid show to catch Kinky Waikiki. I haven’t been to any of their shows this month. Thurs I’ll finally get to catch MC Bluez them on to the HEAP. Fri I’ll be at the Dictatortots and will try to catch the end of the show @ GATH. Sat one of my all time favorite Athens band Cosmic Charlie is my Don’t Miss show after that I going to the debut of Pente Trio (I’m really bummed that I’ll miss the Granfallons, Seth Hendershot’s first band, also Kyshona and Carla Le Fever. I hope someone records some of those shows) . Sun I’ll do my best to make Jerry Fest in Atlanta w / Cosmic Charlie. Mon I’ll be at Carl Lindberg’s show. Tues I’ll finally get to go back to Ike’s show then to Reptar after that.
I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
Peace and Love,
