Ozomatli at The State Theatre

Seven short years ago, I used to drive by The State Theatre. After a four year “startup” learning experience with Textamerica.com, I got into the habit of snapping a camera phone picture when I’d drive by.

This kind of random camera phone activity had some “TA” users calling me a hipster in 2002. I didn’t even know what that was. The name callers, not knowing me well enough to know that skinny jeans and me could never be a thing, had fallen victim to the actual “thing” that happens online all the time

After the long and dismal learning experience (and failure) of “TA” and in my return to a Fortune 100 J.O.B., I pointed shawnblog.com here to Tumblr and have rarely looked back. In the early times on Tumblr, this site somehow got permanently featured on their main page for some time and I was one of those cool kids. Almost a hipster even!

So, this picture was one of those very random drive by shots. I guess it’s not bad. I recall so for a few seconds before posting it to everyone over at exTAmerica on Flickr which was, at the time, set to auto post here on Shawn Blog.

They sound amazing!

Can – Little Star of Bethlehem 

from Delay, 1968

Soda pop is best in the morning when you don’t have nothing to talk about.

Yet another reason I’m so proud to have been born in 1968.

If you’re listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you’re a bigger moron than they are.

The Clash Rocks!

The Clash rocks!

I am glad I now have a huge, instant collection on CD, but I really had to laugh when I opened this box. You see, the really nice folks that went through the trouble to ask the label to send a Johnny Cash box set (after I made a comment about him being one of my lifelong favorite artists) must have left a message for someone who told someone (probably in another message) who may have written a note or, more likely, left another message… and that person was probably thinking…

“why don’t we send him Johnny Cash like we’ve been sending everyone else?”

😉

Clash/Cash.

Very easy to mix up—especially with voice mail or in the handwriting of someone who should have been a doctor. So, I know what I’ll be listening to on my next long ride in the car.

Don’t get me wrong. I am ecstatic about my new music collection and I really do love The Clash, so it’s good times as usual. I was pretty fired up  about the imending delivery of a Johnny Cash box set today though.

I guess it’s iTunes for now!
