St Paddy's Day - Leprechaun and new band

Image
BAR 773 Brooklyn. 
It was a great St Patrick's Day  and evening. I can say that I had fun with it.

Bar was great, band were great, place was packed with thank you generous punters, friends were supportive and it went very well. Little nervous at first while setting up but got into and we did two major sets.

Bar 773 had piles of corned beef, cabbage and spuds on the go all day and their own home grown in house Leprechaun - "Kenny" was the name he called himself.

I had my new band for first time stand up bass and drums.

Tunes Selection:
Mix of Irish/Celticy style covers and ballads for the day that was in it of course.
-Raglan Road/Fields of Athenry/Rocky Road to Dublin
-The Island - is a favorite of mine & Man of constant sorrow
Pop & Rock Sing along songs
-Mad World/Moondance
-Mumford: Little Lion Man
Some choice originals from my deep repertoire of course
- CUBE BUM & Unemployment Blues were played and I thought Wall Street bailout got a warm reception

Google knows EVERYTHING

Image
It began as a niggling feeling that something was n't right.

Everywhere I went it seemed someone was following me.... who could it be and why would they want to know EVERYTHING about me, am I so important? I saw the name GOOGLE everywhere etched on every store and signpost - brought to me by google ... "who is Google? how do they know who I am and why do they know so much about me?" ... I want my info back I cried vainly of course. Everything is GOOGLE now.
Then it started happening - from out of dark alleys and crevices came salesmen of all hues and stripes - opening a coat here - "how about a nice watch? I know Mr wants a nice watch ... 'ear sirr 'ow a bou' a noice piece o' gold for the lady ... how did they even know I had a lady and I was looking for a nice piece of jewelry?
... how about this guitar? it was the very guitar I searched for the other day.
On and on they shouted offer piling on offer til I was sick with surfeit. Do you mean to searc…

Giving up FACEBOOK

Image
I have been nursing a grudge against Facebook for a while now - I'm not sure of it's usefulness to me and felt in a way Facebook is a vampire organization - living off the scraps and life of my life to build a picture of me and all the other like-me's who occupy its so-so scrubbed up new world. This definitely crystallized after I wanted to join Spotify and they would 'nt let me play ball and sign up without a facebook account alignment. Hmm peculiar one that...they offered a separate independent login illusion but in fact it does not work.  Here is the transcript of the Spotify BS
from their customer service nonce.
"Hello John,

Thank you for contacting us. Since most of our users have already connected to Facebook, we chose to join Spotify and Facebook logins. This means then, that all new Spotify users will need to have an active Facebook account to join and use Spotify. Currently there is no way around this, but if there is ever a change we'll let you know …
