OHIO - 11/3/08















in ohiO for a Halloween Party (Big Boo 3!!...pix coming) and w/ Wunder Gurl & Risa & Felix who are campaigning for Obama.

lots of For Sale signs, equal number of McCain & Obama lawn signs.

NB:

- SS writes from NYC:

<"Hey Chris, don't know if this counts as a full-on "Christmas Wrapping" sighting, but WCBS-FM (which has gone completely crazy with Xmas songs this year and started playing them in mid-October or earlier) is running ads for its new Christmas comp CD, and the ads include a snatch of the song... >

...which brings up the subject of this year's WRAPPIE AWARD. every year, i give $100 to the Hoboken Public Library's Children's Department in the name of the FIRST PERSON to contact me and say that they've heard THE WAITRESSES' "Christmas Wrapping" song on the radio/in a mall shoe store/etc..

THE CONTEST STARTS AT NOON E.S.T. ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28th.

GOOD LUCK!


...now, for some CATCHING UP:

- Jimmy Carl Black RIP

- quip from Wait Wait Don't Tell Me this last weekend - they ran the audio clip of McCain saying "Joe The Plumber is here! Where's Joe?...is Joe here?", then a panelist said that what McCain had forgotten was that Joe said he'd be there "between 9 and 3"!

- THE WIND w/ pal Lane Steinberg playing at IPO at Kenny's Castaways in NYC at 10pm. magnificent band from the '80's.

- hearing pal Brian Dewan on Weekend Edition sing old political songs.















- pal & fellow Tin Huey-ite Mark Price is gravely ill. fuckfuckfuckfuckfuck...

- BIG BEAT! drum fest in the Adelbert Gym in Clevo yesterday. attempt at breaking the Guinness Book record for the most drummers playing kits at one time. wow...loud as hell.

- Tom Lough RIP

Tom was my sociology prof at Kent State. huge influence, huge talent (pro stride pianist), huge no-shit-taker from the powers-that-be.

- video-ing a cover of Bette Davis & The Balconettes' "Surf! Surf! Kill! Kill!" at Big Boo 3 (me on drums) w/ Felix directing.



















- Bob Kidney presenting me w/ a CDR of pix when i was in his band = 15-60-75. thanks so much, BK!
