The joyful day!

On my way

This may prove to be a stupid thing to do. I-35 is still open but is snow covered part of the way. I'm taking it very very slow.

If anyone wants to give me a call, I will have my headset on. Do not text me, I probably won't be able to read texts on the road today.

The folks in MN who have my number ... DJ Particle and Luke definitely ... I think Shoebox has it as well.

Wish me luck, I'm hoping on doing it in less than 6 hours, it's normally 3
The joyful day!

The road to Ipanema...

Or possibly Minneapolis... it's hard to tell with the roads out there.

Master Eric, after traveling for 90 minutes has managed a whopping 35 miles on his journey to Mars... con... yea, ya'lll try to be witty after 4 hours of sleep. Um... sorry guess you probably trying just that after the first night of the con.

He does believe the roads will get better the farther north of Ames he gets... yes, we all know he can be a bit delusional.

More updates from the road as he calls in.

The joyful day!

So ... hi

I got here, with moments to spare. I grabbed my guitar and ran (well, as much as I run) to the mainstage and basically went right on. I need to do things like that more often apparantly ...It was a great show, helped on by the ever so wonderful Marscon audience.

And ...

It featured the first totally successful performance of Pine City Motel Blues ... which I opened with even.

Pine City Motel Blues
Konami Code - Featuring the ever so lovely Shoebox from Worm Quartet on vocals
Trophy Wife
Low Self Esteem
Bang My Bald Spot
How Can I Miss You?
Nice Guys

Shoebox and I tossed the idea back and forth thursday night, I tossed together a few chords, and it happened ... another addition to my odd collection of cover songs.

The rest of the day is a bit of a blur.

Possible Oscar were great ... Worm Quartet did at least one song I didnt know, and several I had never seen him do live ... Ookla were great as always. I missed much of Luke's set, but it's not like we won't do shows together soon (Demicon's coming soon)

Who am I missing? I know I'm missing someone ... geeze ... I need food

Hi ... I'm here in MN ... time to eat, crash out, and head back to the Dementia Radio room party
