Attention bands, cranksters and Darth Vader
All this talk of crank reminds me of a joke. “What has 42 legs, 9 fetuses and 12 dogs?” The answer: “the kids in the park.”
I feel remorse that I only saw about 100 bands in 2002, a new low for me. But I can already tell this year is going to rock. In April the American Lung Association is hosting a “Smoke-Out” Battle of the Bands. In order to be applicable you need to send me your CD, photo and bio. Also, a new all-ages music venue that focuses on local bands is gearing up. And the 11th year of Concerts in the Park is looking for bands as well. I am looking for responsible people to help with all of these events, so if you have an interest in music, the local scene or just being apart of the Chico community, drop me a line or call me at the Senator.
And at an awards ceremony honoring the great star of film James Earl Jones and his contribution to keeping the fight of Dr. Martin Luther King vital, a plaque was given that read, “Thank you James Earl Ray for keeping the dream alive.” Ray is the man charged with the death of MLK. People are claiming that it was a copy error that caused the confusion, but what keys do you hit to spell "Jones" with an "R," an "A" and a "Y"? What can you expect when the event takes place in Florida, home of dangling chads, Raelian press conferences and Mickey Mouse?
