Liebster Award

Congrats’ and THANKS to ‘Every Record Tells a Story’ for The Liebster Award! Be sure to give his blog a read…

Every record tells a story

As part of this blogging lark, one of the occupational hazards is that other bloggers will read your stuff (hopefully) and lavish praise (always nice) and bestow awards upon you (like the Oscars – oh they’re meaningless really – until you get one).

So I was very pleased to receive an award (my third! Woohoo!) from the most excellent and very talented sketch artist blogger Chuck Cottrell at Sketches From Memory. His blog is a regular source of wit and he’s prolifically funny and prolifically prolific, if that’s something anyone can be. You can check out his blog at Sketches From Memory here.

The award given is The Liebster Award. No, me neither.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 inductees

I recently (around 12/7/11) saw a news article on-line about the up-coming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2012.

I was very excited to see that ‘hipsters’ the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Donovan (as well as Guns N’ Roses and others) have been inducted!

I also read that the induction concert has been moved back to Cleveland, Ohio instead of New York City where it has taken place for a few years.

Well….I’m originally from Columbus, Ohio and thought that this would be the ultimate concert to see on a visit ‘home’.

I just took a look at website to verify the date, and saw that the concert has already SOLD OUT on Dec 17th!

The concert is taking place on April 14th 2012 at Cleveland’s historic Public Hall.

If anyone goes, and would like to report back to with all the details…that would be great!
