Guitars and Concerts. Blessings and Breaks. More on what that means when you Click Here:

The first 3....

So what are these Blessings, you ask? I was just offered a wonderful writing position with the KICKASS site, Autostraddle. Wow. Wowwee wowwow. Now, if you’re from the old school, you remember that Autostraddle was one of the first sites to show love and appreciation to me… just at a time where I really needed it. Well ever since then, we’ve been following each others awesomes and plotting out the right time to form like Voltron to give you some of the best fucking music you’ll ever be exposed to. Crystal and the amazing editors at AS have decided that now is that time. *humbled.*

Guitars and Concerts? Well tonight was an amazing night. A fairly normal night for what I do, but still amazing nonetheless. You can’t complain after an evening of wonderful music provided by Zoe Keating and her SuperCello, Kaki King and her 9011 guitars… sitting backstage in the house Jon Brion built. Real Instrument Playing Appreciation Night. Its going down. Not to mention my bestie Matt Melvin making the drive from San Diego to hang out for a while. I was surrounded by win this evening. It was a great feeling. Windy is all over the video, as usual.

Anyways, with that being said… here’s where the Breaks part comes in. When the boss is in town, its time to get to work. There will be traveling involved, so I won’t be on my computer (like THAT) for a minute.  Also; with the new writing gig

...and the other 4. 7 is the magic number.

at Autostraddle… along with kickin it over at the World Famous Potholes… I’m going to have some writing pieces Ima need to focus on. I have to sound like I’m creditable and like I know wtf I’m talking about… so we’ll have to gear all my good vocabulary and vernacular that way for a minute. But I’ll still be here, randomly writing my ass off about whatever, and then not editing the shit, making me look like a total dork.

On top of all that… Its time to start getting serious about finishing the archival for the site and new layout. You guys know ive been wanting to update my baby for a while, but the health of my friend who is doing this site take priority (hey Chris… I love you. Get Better). The less I post, the faster it can get done… so we’ll see how that goes.

I wont be going anywhere. I’ll be around to update you and hopefully post up the new Dee-1 Interview I just finished.  Until then, just go through the archives, because im sure you havent read everything I’ve posted. You do that, and I’ll see you guys in a few days.

Love,
Me.

p.s.
I LOVE ANITA BAKER OH MY GOD.
That is all.

ACOUSTICAL NOMS

So Kaki King officially started her tour off  yesterday evening in New York at MOMA’s Guitar Innovators Event to a great turnout. But before she rocked the socks off of MOMA guests, Kaki made a quick stop by WNYC (NPR Music for us westcoasters) for a nice acoustic show and interview that gives you insight to the tour, and what she has been up to lately. You can go ahead and CLICK HERE to download the Edmann-provided link. It’s the entire show tagged and listed correctly for your listening and organizing pleasure. And its pretty awesome.

Meanwhile, in nerdtastic stat-counting land, it came to my attention that Kaki has just passed the 5 Million Plays mark on last.fm. Pretty big deal, considering when I first got there, she had all of 25,000 plays. Its come a really long way.

Anyways, check the updated tour dates here, and have fun.
