Such a pretty name - were you named for the Fleetwood Mac song?

I am loving this - getting a chance to share a thread that's a break-in-the-action from all the battles we're forced to fight in the political realm. THIS, on the other hand, is just pure enjoyment for me! Like taking a small vacation! I just appreciate everybody so much for all this great help! Grammys for ALL of you! At least from my heart, that is!


I'm so glad you like it, City Lights!

I realize there's quite a spread here on DU of people who prefer other music, people who like rock, people like classic rock, so ACIDIC's music is not gonna be to every last individual's taste here. I happen to like it. But I'm biased as all hell! Even so, I think I'd still like it even if I had no relation to or involvement with the band.

BTW - if you'd like to preview the album, go here:


This is iTunes. you can sample all the songs if you just hover over each one with your cursor, and then click. It won't play the whole thing but you'll get a good idea of what each song sounds like.

I'd recommend Track 11, "Miles from Home," because I think it's the prettiest song on the album. It's a ballad, definitely a "chick song," and I'd guess ANYBODY of any stripe and any music preference would find it acceptable - from preschoolers at nap time to Great Grandma and Great Grandpa.

Yeah, I know what you mean. All of a sudden, Goldie's black muzzle is now salt 'n' pepper.

We don't know how old she is. Neither did the animal shelter people. They figured because her teeth were good she had to be on the young side. So that might make her nine or ten now. Crazy old girl. Still capable of playing like a puppy!

You ROCK, Terra Alta!

Okay, so here's my problem. And as problems go, this is a seriously fantastic "problem" to have.

Let's just say this is yet another reason why I love DU.

There are so many posts here that I don't like the idea of just saying "Thank You" or some other brief little comments. I find myself wanting to put more into it. To honor every response with a personal message. This is all so anonymous, this board and other such online communities. We all inter-relate via computer keyboards, not face-to-face or even at some meeting or organized get-together (which I'd love to see happen, especially here in SoCal. So I find myself wanting to reach out just a wee bit more, and make it a little more personal. Cuz just a simple thank-you or one line that starts sounding kinda trite after awhile because I momentarily can't think of a different way to put it - simply doesn't do justice to how important this is to me. I can't tell you how much I've learned and about which I've been educated since I first found this place. I want to give back. I want to say thank you. I want to let you know how much I appreciate this. Whether it was discovering that there were other people who felt the same way I did about bush/cheney stealing the election from Al Gore, or how many people kept me company after my mom died, or how many people were so enthusiastic and eager to contribute to the discussion when I posted about finding my biological siblings. I just appreciate this - AND you - so much. And the fact that you're coming out like this for my kid - blows my mind.

Indeed? Your kid has a band?

What's the band's name? What kind of music do they play?

When I hear this, I immediately go to - Hmmmmmm... where are they located? Do they have a fan base? What kind of band are they? Do they tour? Hmmmmm...

We're always on the lookout for friend-bands. Where they're established versus where we're established and how could we help each other and all that...

Anyway - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Another band passed us but now I see we're creeping back up and gaining on them a little bit.

THANKS SO MUCH, Blue_In_AK! I wanna hear more about your kid's band.

That's true about Seymour Hersh. The last big "expose" he turned out, as I vaguely recall,

went over like the proverbial lead balloon.

That will certainly be the "tell," won't it! If all it did was portray this President in a bad light

then they WOULD be all over it. Precisely and absolutely.

That's the nice thing about things like this. When he can, Steve can browse through all these posts

and what he reads can maybe bring back some warm thoughts or smile-worthy memories. The affection people here have for him - to read those comments and know they're about you - that's gotta make anybody feel better.

Birdies! "In Other News..." we've noticed a few of the little ones back hanging around, too.

Seems pretty clear they're the babies who just recently moved out of the nest because they're visibly smaller than the other birds including the adult Black Phoebes, and they don't have long tail feathers yet. But they sure know how to get to the little pile of birdseed! They must have been watching the grownups do it from their vantage point in the nest.

When I realized there were four, I named them Michael, Matt, Josh, and Max (again).

They're holding their own!

They leave today (Monday the 11th) to go back up north to finish the brief tour with the bands Royal Bliss and Wayland. This past weekend was kinda ridiculous. TWO bands sidelined for mechanical trouble in their tour vans - including us. Wayland lost the whole weekend. So did ACIDIC. For want of a missing hose!

We had a couple of frustrated promoters lamenting how this whole season in that area has been almost cursed! Another cool band, Eve to Adam, wound up having to cancel their whole tour through there. Just one of those things! Just fluke after fluke after fluke. And these are some good promoters. They don't mess up. DAYUM - I suspect the boys might be trying to cook up some surprise for the fans in one of those communities that saw so many of the shows scheduled to come through town get canceled. There are some smaller cities that are not exactly "go-to" places for the bigger bands and bigger concerts and festivals. But THOSE are the EXACT places where there are so many rock fans just almost starving for some great entertainment to visit. Kinda doesn't seem fair. They deserve the Rolling Stones and the Supremes and Elvis and James Brown and Beyonce! They're some of the best crowds in the world! They really appreciate it when somebody comes through town and puts on a great show.

ACIDIC does enjoy going to those places - as often as possible. We are not the Rolling Stones and Supremes and Elvis and James Brown and Beyonce. But our boys do go all out onstage! Even off stage. When they play "Come Together," Michael grabs his wireless mic and leaves the stage and prances around in the audience and vamps with people. Usually, during the chorus, he'll point the mic at some fan and have the fan sing it. It's really great! Lots of interaction.
