FRFF & the Budgiedome
excellent. dissed again.
sorry. i'm being horribly self-centered today.
i don't mind. mainly because i don't get it. :)
if i did it, *un-diss*
you didn't. it's just funny that out of all the performers who played at the dome, and i'm sure lori and steve mentioned most of us, the ones the article mentioned were 2/3 of the budgiedome pros song swap and...jim infantino. i'm guessing there's nothing intentional about this, that those are just the three artists that the reporter decided to mention, but as the unnamed 1/3 of the song swap, i'm a bit (tho unjustly and illogically) woeful about it. :P
seriously. it's a really nice article, and wtg steve, lori, gordon, stacey, and bill for being recognized for the hard work you put into making the dome such a great place to be.
and you know what? wtg misch for your awesome emcee skillz and yummy food, trace for being the mistress of the budgiedome, lawrence for banjofication, neal for always being willing to help everyone out...and wtg teresa storch, russell wolff, lis harvey, phil henry, cadence carroll, alastair moock, eric schwartz, and even adam brodsky for sharing your music with us. even tho none of you are probably as oversensitive to being left out as i am, because all of you are much saner and better adjusted people than i am.
(oh, and when you consider eric and adam better adjusted than yourself, that's when you know it's a good idea you're in therapy. :P )
and while we're thanking everyone who helps us pull this project off, big thanks go to John Ryan for graciously allowing us to borrow his amp equipment even though he wasn't in attendance. Groovelily really appreciated it. :)
Dude, it's nothing personal and the deleted post is not cool (h'ray for email notification). It was not done intentionally. He just mentioned examples of names - randomly picked, like 2 from each night.

Attempts at public embarrassment by mentioning deleted posts aren't cool either.
and that is why i love leah.
hello, maybe i deleted the post because i thought better of it. i honestly think that's much "cooler" than starting a flame war, which is what i realized it might lead to. but hey, if you want to start one anyway, be my guest. just don't expect me to participate.
Sorry, I'm not trying to start anything, it's just that I received it in email first, and either way it had an effect on me & him. Whatever. This discussion will get stupid and overanimated quickly if I continue. As I said before, he meant no offense. *shrug*

However, what you did was very juvenile. Your actions have effects on other people, too, you know.
Frankly, and I think I'm speaking for many people here, I care more about the effects on Carey than on your journalist friend.
okay, Carey already said "enough" and now I'm adding my "enough". Making this into a divided-camp issue isn't cool either. So let's all cool down a little. :)
Thanks to John for writing a comprehensive article under fairly arduous circumstances (ie, interviewing extremely sleep-deprived people while he was probably sleep-deprived himself). There will be mistakes and omissions, in almost any press item -- if not the writer's, then the editorial department's choice of words and emphasis. I'm just glad to see positive coverage for FRFF, and the late-night music camps, in the local press.
thanks for posting this, caroline.
*is amused by the notion of owning a trailer to transport b'dome*
we -wish-. :D
you're welcome. i thought it was pretty cool, i woke up and went "ooh, awesome" when i read it.

The one time I got to read an newspaper article that I was interviewed for my quote and my friend's were misattributed to each other. Reporters write their notes fast and not that carefully on this kind of thing.
He mentioned the rocket launchers but not the cruise missiles. Of course we would only use them if another camp was proven to possess BMDs [blenders of mass destruction] and all other options have been exhausted.

It kinda hurts my head, this article. But that is awsome, Go Stacey and Bill!
The Ticket section (it's like a little insert for arts and entertainment) of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
I doubt it's the Philly Inquirer...I think if it's where you live, it'd be maybe the Times Chronicle? Or some Montgomery Newspapers publication.
Lemme go check.....yeah, Chronicle. We only get the Inquirer and the Chronicle, so that's probably it.
*whew* And here I thought I was going blind, looking and looking through the Inky and not finding it.
Thanks for the correction.

because, like, -some- mention/press is better than none at all, yes?
