I've been enormously grateful to the Sacto Press for having provided the platform that's allowed me to follow your journalistic adventures so easily and regularly, all the way from South Africa. l You should mentally turn this comment from a thumbs up (for humor and quality) to a thumbs down (for lack of future easy access in future to your literary production), unless you promise to find a new means of keeping the many who love you and your work regularly informed, enlightened, and amused. You gonna do that?
Suggestion, at least a temporary measure: if the SP has the sense and good judgement it seems to have on its editorial staff, they'll get you to send in a daily photo journal entry of your trip to Nashville,, assuming you plan to drive. Yeah ... I know ... it won't be *from* or necessarily *about* Sacto, but one way or another, it'll be about your initial efforts to heal your heart, so grievously wounded by the *loss* of that fair city. (Wouldn't that count as sufficiently Sacto-centric to warrant inclusion in the Press??
P.S. Lemme know when that editing slot opens up! :-))
Great! Especially enjoy and commend you for your running monologue with ATD ;-)
I'm extatic about yer review. Wish I'd been there. (When do I get to be your editor?? :-)
"... ownage of all things Anaheim..."
Love it, Lindol! :-)) Also yer close. LOL ... and thanks.
Love it! "I will eat my hat and yours, too." Making you and your reader one. Great stuff.
I make Ron's words my own, 'cept for wont be able to get there for opening. Thanks, Lindol.
Would love to hear this guy.
"doth" = 3rd pers singular (archaic) of "do', but not the imperative.
"doth — 'doth' ?? Surely thou meaneth 'do" :-) — not quote thine self, lest ye wish to appear a pretentious ass." Other than that small gaffe ... a great line.
Lovely, Lindol ... esp the parag lending with "... at which point i passed out."
My own favorite was "... the second set. Where the training wheels came off. Allow me to echo Julia's "Brilliant!" (Did P.M.S. actually say, "People keep requesting all the popular songs. " ??)
In answer to your question, Marika: this 69 year old would if (a) his son Lindol were to recommend a given show there, and (b) if he were able. Unfortunately, the trip from Johannesburg to Sacto is something like 10,500 miles—a tad far to go to attend anything much less than a Beatles concert. Do keep in mind that as Lindol's comment above suggests by extension, you too, with any luck, will be 50 years old one of these years. Do you plan on becoming creepy before then?
Great stuff, Lindol. Really! :-))
Once again, you put us there ... brought us along with you.
And, "I didn't get the least bit emotional or weepy. As far as you know."
Where do you come up with these zingers? Love 'em!
I hope your son turns out to make you laugh as much as does my son, Lindol.
Gee, I'm glad you took the trouble to clarify that. I was really confused there for a minute ... :-)
Wassa "Merch table"??? Can't make out the photo.
I've been trying for a long time to suss out just what it is that seems to me to set your reviews apart from so many others. It could be, of course, that we're related ... but I don't think that's it, actually. It's the fact, I think, that your work never quite sticks exclusively to the topic at hand but roves, rather, with an artist's eye: I can see and feel the people you're sharing whatever it is with ... and the colors and sounds and tastes ... and it feels remarkably like being there ... or listening to it ... or eating it ... or whatever. Plus you make me laugh a lot. Thanks, Lindol.
The only perfect food, perhaps ... but certainly not the most ... :-)
Who'da thunk it? ... More great work, Lindol. You've a take all your own, Lindol, and it makes for a wonderful read.
