So Maybe I'll Stop Calling The Advocate A Shitrag For The Next Week Or So

click for enlarged view

Just to show how easily manipulated I am (that's a joke, son), I'm gonna mention how the New Haven Advocate used one of my photos again a few issues back, and this time they even contacted me beforehand and gave me credit for it (you can read the whole thing here, at least while the link is still good). Okay, I know it's not really all that interesting, plus it's not as if I rank with the print media alongside the likes of The Needle Drop-- really, who does?-- but as long as my scanner is the only thing that's still working around here, I might as well get some use out of it. Plus it's about Kevin from Brava Spectre, who, as I've witnessed firsthand, is not a very careful skateboarder.

Here's another one where I'm not sure how it slipped by, either: an item in the Hartford Advocate from a week ago-- directly above a mis-spelled listing for Tony Harrington, who used to sing the national anthem at Wolf Pack games, no less-- for a basement show at The Whitney House (what, no ink for Misathropic Noise?). Kinda weird, I thought, especially since basement shows sorta operate outside the boundaries of the local authorities, if you catch my drift.

Anyway, Brava Spectre has a new full-length recorded, and they were even giving away free sampler CDs of the album at their show last weekend (which I didn't go to). Here's something from their earlier EP-- January '09, maybe? I could be wrong-- which I haven't posted anything from yet, so please click away.

Yeah, I can't imagine who would've sent that in to the paper... surprised the hell out of me when I saw it.
