Spring! Tra-la Tra-la

First day of my Spring Break. Have thus far spent most of the day relaxing.

I haven't posted for awhile because I have been busy/lazy.

Open Mike this Sunday. The Canaries haven't rehearsed, so I don't think we're going to be the Canaries this Sunday. I have been practicing a couple of chord progressions for songs I might play. My choices are a slow, brooding love ballad from the 60's that has had a bit of a revival lately, a Dylan song that I should know by now, or a song that I have been threatening to perform but have yet to perform. Maybe this weekend would be a good time to perfect the lot of them.

This month, they're starting the Open Mike a whole hour earlier so it won't run as late as it has in the past. I'm interested to see how that goes, what with people's learned habits and all. I plan (I said PLAN) on getting there early. But I don't know if I can ever get there as early a some of the people who show up an hour, sometimes an hour-and-a-half, sometimes two hours early. I like doing it, but it's just not THAT important to me.

When I logged in today, I noticed that I started to write a post about some of the music I have discovered on MySpace, which I feel in my heart is made up primarily of teenagers and losers, but has actually been a functional tool for me in connecting with some uke community people.

Anyway, I will post about some of the uke stuff I found there.

Big public online communities like MySpace, Deviantart, and yes, even blogger seem to follow Sturgeon's law ("...90 percent of everything is crap), but there is such a large volume of material and people accessible, that you really can mine them for gems if you care to take the time...

Does it follow that 90% of all crap is crap?
