After dark




I know it's not after dark yet, but I'll be out tonight viewing senior class projects from my daughter's high school.

She made this drum!

That. Is. C00L!

Enjoy your evening! (Is it made with a gourd?)

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

That is gorgeous

...and so is she! Have fun!

wow.

Beautiful work!!

Ok, final hand count ... who's going to be at JJ tomorrow night? I'll be working for my cheap seat (volunteering) so shout and wave if you see me!! Run over and give me a hug if you can!! I know it makes me sound as uncool as I actually am, but I'm as excited about tomorrow as a little kid on Christmas Eve. :)

I'll be there

I'm going to be in the more expensive seats. Not because I can afford it, but because a friend of mine bought tickets and can't go. She gave me a ticket because she really wants a big Obama supporter in her seat.

You're not THAT big

:D

Glad to see you on Sunday. I wish I'd been able to chat, but was fussing with the danged live feed that wouldn't work. Oh well! Videos up later today.

Obama stuff after the dinner

Anything going on for Obama supporters after the dinner?

Democratic supporters after the dinner

I don't know about specific campaigns, but the Young Democrats are hosting a "do" at the Clarion immediately following the dinner.

The Clarion, as some of you know, is the big old hotel on Hillsborough street (not far from Democratic Party Headquarters) that looks like a tube. It's rounded instead of four-sided but I don't remember whether the penthouse used to actually move.

The Clarion

Thanks for the info, I know exactly where it is, it has been around a while. I stayed there as a kid when we did our family vacation to Raleigh 30 years ago. Me and my brother got in trouble for dropping ice on people off the balcony.

Then you must return

And by the way, check out Huffington Post today. It carries a clip of Obama on Letterman, reading top ten unique facts about Obama. It's quite good.

I'd link it but I suck at linking.

I'll be there

I will be one of the tallest guys there so I shouldn't be hard to spot. Blue pinstripe suit, brown hair

I'll be there - with my contingent of family

In the cheap seats. I will look for you, because I didn't get enough conversation the on Sunday - and I'm so excited I've taken all day off of work. (actually, I'm going to be making phone calls in the precinct.)

OH - and that is an amazing drum!

Great Job, daughter of James and Jane. That's the reason our offspring didn't come on Sunday - he was finishing the bass he was rebuilding.

Gadzooks !

For those who haven't clicked onto the picture of the drum to enlarge it -- DO IT. It's absolutely beautiful.

Drumalicious

That drum is fab dude! And I bet she had gobs of fun making it. When YOU gonna make a drum?

Denny

Who here drums?

One of my favorite things to do. I'm betting pagandenman has some experience at it. Do we have enough drummers for a Bluenc Drum Circle and Bonfire?

Why didn't ya say so eons ago!!!!

There's nothing like a man on a drum!!! You should have glossy flyers out with you doing a Buddy Rich rendering -- sweat flying and sticks that show up as mere blurs of motion.

(This might not work on bongos)

Serious drumming

I was up in Asheville last Friday evening and if you want to hear some serious drumming check out the little park on Wall St.

I could hear them from blocks away

Just gotta ask...

That's a great looking drum. What's goin' on? From some of the comments, it sounds like a beltane celebration...
