An In-Snide Look #22

I still lament the fact that no weather person or computer algorithm can seem to crack the mystery of Indiana weather.  Snowpocalypses become light dustings, record heat warnings barely crack the 90 degree mark, and what they said was going to be a flood of biblical proportions turned into just a real dreary, rainy day.  (*sigh*) Not that I'm wishing for severe weather or anything, I just feel kind of band for the yapping craniums hunched over radar dishes to no avail.  To my surprise, there are still people in this state who follow the Farmer's Almanac and swear by its accuracy as being superior to that of the “Certified Meteorologist.”  Come to think of it, I have no idea what it takes to be a “Certified Meteorologist.”  I know that it only takes $20 to become a “Licensed Psychic” and $30 to become an “Ordained Unitarian Minister,” but I always assumed “Certified Meteorologist” was the one member of the imaginary journalistic profession that probably had some inkling of whatever it is they are rambling on about.  Please don't shatter this thin thread of hope left in me and tell me that these people at least had to pass a couple of tests about cumulus vs stratus vs cirrus clouds or something.

Farewell Audition dropped by Studio B today to record their segment for Sound Check with Irish.  Yes, I promise we will get to Episode 2, 3, and 4 eventually, probably just in time for ol' Irish to go on hiatus sometime in mid-January.  At least, I certainly hope so, because we've recorded a whole lot of awesomeness so far between Audiodacity, Jeff Byrd, Pedigo/Burch, and the aforementioned Farewell Audition boys.  Major problem seems to be the sheer amount of time needed to train him put a 4-hour show together on his own, although the goal is to eventually just have him do it live, which as we've seen leads to whole new forms of chaos.

Currently getting ready to head out to Northbound Music Showcase, this month featuring Thomas Wayne Pruitt, Swig (in possibly their final performance),  and No Pit Cherries (whom I haven't seen in a few months).  I'm starting to think that maybe the idea of “Showcases” and “Concert Series” was a bad idea, at least, and I say this being one of the offending parties, I'm certainly getting sick of seeing them.  Seems now everybody is doing a “showcase,” which sort of dilutes the effect and created this sort of artificial inflation where the value of just going to see a “plain ol' show” is now worth a lot less than it was originally. Worse, all of these Showcases are really just “plain ol' shows” with a logo when it comes down to it anyway.  See, the problem here was, when I did PodConcert 1, I had this vision of actually upping the ante for shows, providing bags of chotskies, discount passes to the next show in the “series,” exclusive access to photos and downloads of the show, etc.  Never did get around to that and basically put on a just a “plain show” with a souvenir program, which now everybody is doing, sans souvenir program.  Probably should get back to that original concept, eh?

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
