UPDATES TO THIS BLOG, etc, etc, etc...

okay, first of all, I’ve been voraciously reading the language log for days, nay, even months now, and if you’re the kind of language/etymology geek that I tend to be, you’ll be SOO happy to have this link. Don’t click on it unless you’re prepared to spend at least an afternoon there.

SECONDLY I’ve got another scooter link! One that links back to me, even! just gotta scoot is a website dedicated to the scooter-obsessed, those who’d rather be out riding than doing most anything else. And it’s ESPECiALLY good on days like today (at least in austin) where it’s dreary and rainy out, too wet and thunderstormy and flash-flood-warning-in-travis-county-y to even consider riding (unless you’ve got an amphiscoot). You can click on the link above and be transported to a world of nothing but scooters, scooter links, scooter talk, all the time! And now they’re in the scootin’ sidebar.

just gotta scoot has even got a link to ME! I’ve just gotta get ‘round to sending in my scooter story for ‘em. (But they did come up with the best julie scootin’ logo EVER!)

aw yeah.

crooning at the austin mopeds/urban pollution SXSW day party:

(look! a moped!)

then we rushed over to play the eastside scootenanny @ red's scoot inn, where, for some reason, they turned out the lights while the musicians played, only to turn them back on during the sets. hmmm.

and, as promised, our drummer matt, in all his glory:

resources for SXSW 2006...

aside from the official SXSW schedule of showcases, that is, here's where to find the day shows!!

you gotta go looksee at the only two resources you could possibly need for daytime SXSW enjoyment: showlist austin and lil' deb's monkey ranch. they'll update you on everything you need to know, including what's free, what's not, where things are, who's playing where, etc....

of course, pay special attention to the fact that the casting couch will be playing at three day shows...

FRIDAY 3/17:
i eat records and austinist party:
1PM @ spiderhouse (2908 Fruth St.) (even though showlist austin has us at 3, we're really playing at 1!!!)

progress coffee, austin mopeds, and urban pollution party:
12:30PM @ progress coffee (500 San Marcos St., two blocks East of IH35 on 5th St.)


management music and team clermont party:
2:45PM @ Red's Scoot Inn (1308 E.4th St.)

come have an afternoon beer with the casting couch!
