Don't worry, I'm fine - I just  wanted to give everyone a heads up and repost an email that [profile] jafosmite sent out. The Joe Trainor Trio have a bunch of upcoming gigs that I wanted to let everyone know about and I did want to ask a little favor: They're part of the Spark Summer Music Festival. Please (as a favor to me) visit the link below and vote for them. It does require registering, but that really is painless and you can vote daily once you've registered. As to the rest of the details? Well, I'll leave that to [profile] jafosmite :

Hello everyone… 

Just wanted to take a minute to tell you about some great things we've got coming up…and to ask for your help: 

    1. The Trio is part of Spark's annual Summer Music Series.  First, go here and vote for us: .  You'll see three TABS ('Welcome', 'Watch Videos & Vote' and 'Register').  Take a quick minute to register (it's very easy) then throw us a vote.  It would help us a lot.  On the video page they've got an mp3 of our song Drift and an "in-studio" performance of the song For The Rest Of You.
    1. Come see us play in the Spark Summer Music Series on Friday, August 8th at Mojo 13.  We're doing a 90 minute set which will include some new originals, some great covers and a few surprises.  Hope you can make it.
  1. The Trio is taking part in the first annual Unicity Festival in Middletown, Delaware.  The date is Saturday, August 2nd and is an all-day event with over 100 artists including an appearance by director John Waters, comedian Sandra Burnhard, and headlined by the 80s group The Fixx.  Details about our performance time and venue are still to come.  General admission tickets are $15 and details on additional tickets can me found at  (Of note: My brother Allen plays bass for Paul Lewis and my brother Shawn sings for the band Cubane and both are also on the bill, making it the first time all three brothers have taken part in the same show with three different bands.)
  1. Finally, The Joe Trainor Trio is honored to be headlining the 101st annual Arden Fair this year on Saturday, August 30th, which is a great outdoor event that's free to the general public.  Our performance time hasn't been nailed down yet, but will likely be in the late afternoon.  It's a family event so kids are welcome.  Come spend the day in Arden!!

OK…that about does it.  Please give us your vote and we hope to see you at any (or all) of the shows above. 

Take care and thanks.

Bo Burnham

Ok kids. Do yourselves a favor and go check out Bo Burnham's music videos on YouTube right now.

Fair warning - his lyrics are nsfw, but c'mon people - he's just busy being f'ing hysterical if you ask me.

Personal recommendations:
New Math
Rehab Center for Fictional Characters
My Whole Family

They're all good, but that seems a good quick sample.

Well, as they say in cheesey movies about movies - That's a wrap. It's in the can. We rocked that shizzle.

And we had one hell of a lot of fun doing it.

This coming Wednesday, you can see the movie we made on the big screen. In fact, I would LOVE to have as many of you as can make it. I'll consider bribing you.

You can't tell that audience participation helps to determine local winners can you?

Anywho - here's the information per [personal profile] boutell (who was our rockstar producer/director):

"It will really be screening on Wednesday at the International House, 3701 Chestnut Street, at 9:15pm! Yes, you should get there early to get a ticket ($10) for screening group D!"

I very much look forward to seeing any/all of you there!

(The following was shamelessly stolen from an email [ profile] boutell sent out.)


This year's Greater Delaware Avengers, aka improv goddess Bobbi,
accomplished playwright Lindsay, talented director Matt, location
mavens Mary and her sister Ann, remarkably skilled first-time director
Laura, a convincingly deranged Brett and possibly real-for-serious
videographer Lauren will be producing another official 48 Hour Film
Project movie this weekend!

Here are the details on the screening to follow very shortly thereafter:

"What?" a festival of short films made during a 48-hour period
beginning this Friday night and ending this coming Sunday.

"When?" Wednesday April 30th, 9:15pm.

"Where?" The International House, 3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA.

"How much?" a $10 ticket gets you twelve awesome short films on the
big screen. Of which ours will of course be the most awesome. In part
because you will all be bringing your aunts, all of whom will vote for
us! Yeah!

"Is there an afterparty?" Hellz yeah there is. The official 48HFP
afterparty will be at the Silk City Diner, with prizes awarded at
midnight. Those who are still mad about the demise of the old Silk
City may wear black armbands.

There are no advance ticket sales. Please arrive early to be sure of a
ticket and a seat!

"I want more!" If you love this stuff as much as I do, I suggest
arriving earlier so that you can see another screening group of short
films starting at 7pm. And if you love this stuff to a scary degree,
there are groups of films being screened on Tuesday the 29th as well
at 7pm and 9:15pm.

"Should I RSVP?" You don't have to, just show up! But RSVP emails
would be awesome and highly encouraging to all involved.


I welcome responses here and/or emails

Wow. What an awesome weekend.

For any of you who managed to not catch [personal profile] xtingu 's weekend summary post...

Friday September 7th, 2007:
I worked a little late. Ok - maybe not worked so much. A co-worker sold me a motherboard and cpu to update my sorely antiquated home PC. It took a little work, some prayers in long dead languages and a couple of virgin sacrifices, but we got it working. The power supply, in fact, wasn't the right pin out, but my handy pocket knife explained the situation to the cabling, and now it sees the error of its ways. Now I'm able to do things like play music AND browse the web at the same time. What a concept.

After that, I swung by my place, dropped the pc off, got packed up for the weekend and headed over to see [personal profile] xtingu for a nice relaxing evening of 'chill with my girlfriend' - which is not a euphemism - it's just really good.

Saturday September 8th, 2007:
We headed up to my folks' place to celebrate my brother and my birthdays. Our middle brother and his lovely wife came down to join in the festivities. Brunch at Pickles (more on that later) and then we lost Josh, Ben, and Trina to other plans. My folks, [personal profile] xtingu , and myself headed back to the house to drop off crap and consolidate vehicles, then it was off to the Allentown Art Museum to see the Looney Tunes Exhibit.

After a delightful time at the museum (which included sitting and watching cartoons with my Mom and Pop in the 'kids section' and getting bemused looks from security guards) we headed to lunch and to do a little shopping. I needed to update a couple things in my wardrobe pretty badly and I annoyed Llij and my Mom with my efficiency in that department. To illustrate:

Step 1: Walk into the shoe store.
Step 2: Grab the first pair of shoes that I like after a quick glance.
Step 3: Try on one other size in the same 'model' shoe.
Step 4: Pay for shoes.
Step 5: There is no Step 5. Nor is there any spoon.

I did much the same thing with some other clothes, a new tie, and so forth. Since I was going to a wedding reception with [personal profile] xtingu and I both seem to really just enjoy the hell out of  'farting around' with my folks, and this was some good time with them that we don't get nearly often enough. My brothers and their significant others were sorely missed, but Ben and Trina were at a good friend's wedding and Josh doesn't get to see enough of Angie these days, so he was visiting her, so I guess we can forgive them.

Later, [personal profile] xtingu and I caught up with [profile] kar0na at The Starlite Diner (which - as a side note - is INcorrectly located on Google Maps) for some munchies. We called it a fairly early night because my Rock Star Girlfriend had a date with a recording studio on Sunday. I won't point out that I'm getting to be an old man and really like to get to sleep at a decent hour myself or anything.

Sunday September 9th, 2007:
We got up and spent a little time just nibbling muffins, drinking freshly brewed coffee, and chillin with the fam. Again - good times. The folks even brought out the photo album of my < one year old baby butt. [Insert 'Awwws' here.]

After Llij took off for her studio time, I got ready for the reception with [profile] kar0na and then headed out. We got some good hang time with good peeps at the party (which was at the Sheraton Jetport). First a couple drinks at the bar with munchies - then to the banquet hall where people with much more nimble feet than my own danced after we ate a delightful meal. And had a couple more drinks. (Don't worry kids - Yours Truly was exceedingly well behaved since I knew that I had a lot of driving ahead of me.) [profile] kar0na looked lovely, I got to meet some new folks as well as see old familiar faces, and I even got to snap a couple pics/vids. All in all? I had a pretty damn fine time.

Headed down to Delaware and more or less collapsed - only to get up entirely too soon for work since I'm 'the early guy' this week.

Ugh. Can't we go back to the weekend?

So you've probably all forgotten the little experiment that I started back in February.

Well I didn't. It was driving me nuts that I never did finish the portraits that I had promised. I had plenty of steam to do an hour on [ profile] lafemmekatia's image.

I slowed down a bit and lost a bit of drive while working on [ profile] theseitz's image of Rodney Dangerfield. I sucked it up and worked on him for a little over 1/2 hour. Poor Rodney. You've looked better buddy.

I have just finished (at long last) the image I promised for [ profile] anisette_toast. I actually found this one coming together fairly quickly. There was a lot going on here tonight, and while I would think that should be an 'excuse' for why the image didn't turn out the way I wanted, it actually seemed to be the reverse. In just 1/2 hour (ok - maybe a touch more) I felt comfortable calling it a night.

To those of you who know him in RL and/or those peeps on my flist who like really good (and funky) poetry - my buddy Don from the Lehigh Valley has started a new LJ account - [ profile] petrarch5. (He no longer has access to his old one - [ profile] avalonsleeper.)

The "golden hour" with live music on the Riverfront along with good friends, good food, and good drink. Not a bad Sunday night.

I was thinking about doing some t-shirt designs. Mostly, I'm probably going to stick with my forte - tribal designs and the like. However, I have some pretty damn clever friends, so I thought that I would put the word out:

If any of you have an idea for a funny (or serious for that matter) shirt - let me know. If I like the idea, and I put it on a shirt, I'll (at least) buy one of the shirts for you, and you can brag to all of your friends that you came up with the idea!

Now you can get Google Calendar on your mobile phone! For those of you who might have been holding out and using other calendar services, I say unto thee: SWITCH NOW!

Yeah... some of you are going to love me for this. (Assuming of course, that you haven't seen them yet.
mrlich: Photo with great thanks to Joe del Tufo - (Default)
Sorry gang - I completely forgot to send this out sooner.

Tonight I will be at the following:

See Kat's huge new art center (one city block long and four floors high) called," The Fortress for the Arts." This is where Halcyon Fine Art Gallery will be located and at the grand opening party we plan to exhibit; photography, paintings, independent films, and jewelry of local area artists. Besides having this art exhibit, the members of Kat's meetup group called," The Singers, Songwriters, & Musicians Network," will entertain us with their live singing and music. Meet and network with hundreds of fashion designers, photographers, artists, painters, models, actors, and independent filmmakers that are also from Kat's other meetup groups. This event will help promote everybody that helps us out and is associated with the art industry.

If you're able to make it - by all means let me know so that we can hang!
