Getting the Gig

Posted By Mitefind on April 2, 2008 @ 4:15 pm

My boyfriend is in a band, and though I think they are very good, not too many people know who they really are.  They decided this year that they would change that and were thinking of ways to get their name and their music out there.

They decided to hire a manager, at least until their money ran out.  They figured if they had a good enough manager that they would get better gigs, which in turn meant that more people would hear them and more people would eventually know who they are.

It ended up being a very good decision as the manager they hired worked very hard for them and they got to play in places that they had only dreamed of playing in before.  We are really impressed with how many call backs that they’ve had and I predict that they will have a hit album out within the next year.

Birthday Present for my Mother

Posted By Admin on March 8, 2008 @ 9:02 pm

It is getting close to my mother’s birthday and I dare not forget to buy her a gift.  You see, I made that mistake once and she has never let me forget it – even though it was many years ago.

Since that incident, I have tried to plan ahead a bit and have a game plan in place.  That way, I don’t end up getting her something stupid for her birthday, but rather something thoughtful.

So, during the year, I make a point of paying attention to what she talks about – usually in her conversations, she lets slip what she wants for her birthday.  This year, I think the message is pretty clear: Paul McCartney Tickets.

I don’t know if she has a crush on him, or just loves his music, but each time I go to visit her lately, she is listening to his music, or talking about him.  It turns out that he is coming to town after her birthday, so it will be perfect.

I wonder who she will think is the best son after she opens her gift?  I guess I will have to see.
