random set of thoughtrons

Tonight was cool. I got a couple of attacks of paranoid insecurity, and I ran out of steam before the end of the concert, but... it was really cool to dance to music again. Johnny D’s is the place.

Hm, email response from a voice from the past... Will have to start conversing tomorrow. Conversation is hard, let’s go shopping.

I think I need to figure out when I stopped being able to discern conversation in loud environments, and what changed then. I bet it was around when I started being indiscriminately destructive to my eardrums, standing in places like “in front of the amps at Middle East”.

Why do I get the feeling I’m forgetting a concert thingie coming up soon that I should be aware of? If anyone knows of one, lemme know...

I really do love telling the story of my dashboard whenever anyone comments on the funky colors. I’ve gotten to tell it to maybe six different sets of passengers in my car now. :)

One of these days I should put together a website that basically has the nightly schedules of Passim, Johnny D’s, The Middle East, The Wonder Bar, The Kendall Cafe, and TT The Bear’s (and other places I’m forgetting) in a nice easy-to-read central repository... I wonder if there would be a way for that service to make money. Or not cost me extra for bandwidth usage, at least.

How much longer can I keep babbling into LJ, and put off going to sleep? Why do I seem to want to? Eh. I’m done here... Good night.

I hope to be seeing rasputina on Monday, but I don't think that's the concert you're forgetting.

Great idea about the club schedules! I'd add the Burren too, if it were up to me, but I'm weird. I was just thinking that I haven't yet found the equivalents of places like the Middle East in Berkeley, and I miss them.

Yes, I hadn't forgotten that one, and even considered mentioning it, to save you the trouble of saying that here... except then I figured "Ah, one more place to plug it couldn't hurt, could it?" :)

Schedules...
One of these days I should put together a website that basically has the nightly schedules of Passim, Johnny D’s, The Middle East, The Wonder Bar, The Kendall Cafe, and TT The Bear’s (and other places I’m forgetting) in a nice easy-to-read central repository... I wonder if there would be a way for that service to make money. Or not cost me extra for bandwidth usage, at least.

This is an excellent idea for a service, and I think you could make money on it as well. I would talk to some of the venue owners and see what they think of the concept, if they would be interested in advertising their events there, how much they would chip in for the service, or if they know of other venues that might want to advertise.

It may be easier to garner interest if you divided the clubs geographically. For instance, have a Central Square page. That way, if someone wants to see what's happening in the neighborhood social scene on a given night, they might be able to notice more events of interest than they had originally planned. This might also get local restaurants and other businesses interested as well.

There are plenty of guide sites out there, but most of them are poor and have only the most general information. Having a good site with specific well-updated information would be great, but it will probably be a lot of work as well.
