Happy Hour: This Is The Air We Breathe

  • So Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, and Wilson counties now have something else in common: None of us can measure up to the new EPA air quality standards. Bring on another Endless Summer Of Smog And Air Quality Alerts. [Tennessean]
  • Apparently the marathon people were doling out sports drinks that made everyone puke. [Pith In The Wind]
  • One of the guys the Titans picked up over the weekend is the son of an ESPN sports announcer that some of you may recognize, Chris Mortensen. We do not recognize him because we rot our brains with VH1 instead. [Tennessean]
  • Surprisingly, we’ve made it through yet another day without any of that nasty Swine Flu getting into our state. [WTVF]
  • If you’re not at Dining Out for Life right now, you really should be. [Dining Out For Life]

  • Much obliged for the mention, ya’ll. I’m humbled that they’d have me on their label, and I hope folks enjoy the record as much as I’ve enjoyed making it. This all started out as a lark and kind of snowballed, I never expected a record deal out it. SL’s the bleeding edge of a new-era of tech coming that will no doubt add a whole new dimension to how performing artists reach their fans and listeners around the world. Though SL is five years old, its in its infancy tech-wise, akin to where CompuServe was when the Mozilla browser came on the scene and change forever the world of online services. I’m kind of ramblin’, sorry, but I’m thrilled to get signed, and appreciate the kind words above. 🙂

    well actually he became the second person to get rl record contract. Bara Jonson in Second Life, from Sweden, Scanidnavia, signed a record deal with New York based Hondo Mesa Records already in June 2008. Bara is crossing the Atlantic in september to start recording the CD.
