words, words, words…

Posted by eric on November 6, 2007

(have you heard // A bird in hand is much better than, // Any number free to wander… ok, I’ll stop quoting DMB lyrics…)
As I was trying to figure out what to write about tonight, I was checking out some posts with the NaBloPoMo randomizer. I came across a post on in which the blogger is also talking about NaNoWriMo. Wow. Posting on a blog every day, and finishing a novel, all in the month of November. That’s a lot of words. I don’t think I could do it. That got me thinking about how much I write every day, in the course of putting together my newscast. I’ve never really calculated it, although it would be interesting to figure that out. Maybe I will one day… hmm.

new coverart!

Posted by eric on April 8, 2007

A while back, I started making cover art for the December 5, 1997 DMB show at the Orange Bowl. Since it was at the Orange Bowl, I was looking forward to making the cover art and including some stadium photos. But Paint Shop Pro kept giving me memory errors. Today, I went back and essentially started from scratch, and it worked. It’s now up on the cover art page.

so it’s been a while…

Posted by eric on December 24, 2006

So after 30 days of continuous posting… I wait three weeks before posting again. Oh well.
Not a whole lot to say at the moment. I’ve been grabbing a lot of “new-old” DMB recordings — maybe I’ll make cover art for some. Or maybe not. There’s one show from December 1997 (at the Orange Bowl) that I was making cover art for, but Paint Shop Pro kept crashing. Maybe I’ll revisit that soon…

Last night, I was listening to a tape of DMB’s show from 11-17-94. I don’t remember where it was. Maybe Colorado. Either that, or Virginia. Either way, the combination of a great setlist and great sound quality (soundboard!!) made for a great tape. I think there was a Seek Up opener — good stuff. I grabbed it off — I don’t remember if it was one of the new-old shows, or if it was just a random upload. Regardless, it’s a great tape, and worth a download 🙂

DMB recently released a “greatest hits” compilation, The Best of What’s Around. An assortment of studio and live tracks. You could buy it through the Warehouse pre-order store, which would get you the “encore” CD, with even more live tracks. I managed to miss the pre-order deadline, partially because I kept putting it off.
Sunday, I saw that Best Buy would have the CD (minus the encore CD, of course) for 11.99. I decided I’d buy it there, and just deal with the fact that I missed the extra tracks. So I did. And it sounds pretty good.
Today I see an email from DMB saying that they are making the encore CD available for a limited time at a premium price… $10 in addition to the price of the CD, if you order through them. One, I already have the CD at this point. Two, paying $10 for something that was free last week doesn’t make much sense. Oh well.
(side note: one-third of the way there.)

ticket stubs found

Posted by eric on December 20, 2005

I was cleaning my room last night, when I found some ticket stubs. Several of them. All of the stubs, in fact, from my first 5 DMB concerts. I knew I had them somewhere, I just didn’t know where. But now I do. I’ve scanned them and added them to the Live Music page.

actual content!

Posted by eric on September 28, 2005

Since is down tonight, I found myself with some spare time (ha). I decided to update some actual content on my site. I made some minor changes to the About Me page. I also made some major updates to the Live Music page. I put up all of my 2005 DMB concerts, some other 2005 concerts, and even a Dickey Betts show from 2004. One of these days, I need to find a better way to organize that page. (Maybe in the next version of this site, that’s now in the works…).
I also need to stop updating at 4 AM.

travelin’ man…

Posted by eric on July 31, 2005

So I went too long without posting again. Oops. Three more galleries in the photo gallery — one from my trip up to SPAC to see DMB, and two from my road trip around Florida earlier this month for, well, you probably know what for.

new art…

Posted by eric on May 2, 2005

Yes, I’m still here. I’ve just forgotten to update the blog in a while. Anyway, I’m going to try to make DMB cover art a little more frequently now. I just created covers for the December 31, 1992 concert. They’re in the Cover Art section, with the others.

minor updates.

Posted by eric on February 27, 2005

I happened to glance at my “about” page, when I noticed I needed to fix my age. I fixed that. Then noticed I needed to fix my DMB “tour stats.” Fixed that. Then I noticed a few lines in my chunk about UM football, that had become out of date. Fixed those. I think that’s all for now.
