    Marshall- I have, and enjoy using, the Phanatic app

    great for random show/set info

  2. Marshall Says:

    @ chef- one feature I love is how it includes shows that “never happened” giving the reason (canceled, mistaken date, etc.)

  3. chefbradford Says:

    Yeah, it’s got some nice features. YouTube links, etc.

  4. Lycanthropist Says:

    you guys and your iphones

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    dvd things….

  6. Lycanthropist Says:

    who dat guys?

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Saints giving a beat down. Not surprised really. Sticking w/ Chargers/ Saints superbowl.

  8. chefbradford Says:

    It’d be nice to see the local boys do it big this year

  9. Marshall Says:

    Returning to the Haiti discussion and donations, more than $9 million has been donated by cell phone text messaging in the last few days.


    When I made my initial $5 donation by text to Yele, it felt so insignificant. But, the news reports show that a little bit can and does, in fact, add up to a heck of a lot.

    I was unaware of The Mobile Giving Foundation, but their idea is a good one.

  10. voopa Says:

    Yeah on Wednesday afternoon, the text donation total was reported to be $1.2M, by Friday morning it was 6…great stuff.

  11. Mr. Palmer Says:

    @Marshall- I was thinking about seeing Zappa plays Zappa tonight. After all the Haiti talk today, i decided to spend the night at home with my family and take the $$ i would have spent on gas, parking, tickets, and beer and donate it to the link you threw up earlier. Thanks

  12. Marshall Says:

    @ Palmer – FTW!

  13. BrandonKayda Says:

    Don’t sleep on the Cincy Tweezer

    I passed it off thinking it was a guitar led version like MSG, boy was I ever wrong

    Runner up to Miami Tweezer IMO

    Sorry to spoil the conversation, carry on

    re: Haiti, all NGOs aren’t equal of course, if you need help navigating who to give to I posted this yesterday:

    for those of you looking for organizations to donate to re: Haiti, these recommendations just came through my inbox via Mark Shuller, an anthropologist who has worked in Haiti for years and has studied NGOs there.
    The first urgent priority is medical aid. Partners in Health
    http://www.pih.org co-founded by anthropologist Paul Farmer has a working infrastructure that
    notably is not headquartered in Port-au-Prince that is still largely functioning. And their long-term
    effort involves training Haitian medical professionals and working with the community. Other
    noteworthy NGOs include Fonkoze http://www.fonkoze.org, a microcredit agency that is very good
    at getting desperately needed cash to Haiti’s remotest and poorest. Fonkoze is a model of efficiency
    and accountability, and they have over 40 branches across Haiti. Lambi Fund
    http://www.lambifund.org stands out among the NGO community (their director and founders would
    chafe at the title of NGO) as having a well-thought out, grassroots structure. Their very small staff
    and bottom-up approach allows them to build capacity and get more of their funds to the ground, a
    model for others to follow.
    Women for Haitian Refugees (google them, or see an action alert posted on http://www.potomitan.net
    with a list) has an excellent, demonstrated, organized, ability to get aid to the grassroots.
    he mentions several others that he can’t vouch for personally but that come recommended by people he trusts, including Yele.

  15. KWL Says:

    nice work Mr P!

  16. Lycanthropist Says:


    keep me posted buddy!


    yeah that tweezer is awesome!

  17. butter Says:

    i do have to say the Haitians i spoke with were very

    concerned for their families that are in Haiti

    but had a slight gleam in their eye that they had made the

    decision to bail Haiti at whatever point they did so

  18. kenny powers Says:

    @ KWL, great info, thanks. Paul Farmer does some great work. He spoke at my commencement a few years back.

  19. Lycanthropist Says:

  22. Marshall Says:


  23. KWL Says:

    ^that’s how I found it

  24. KWL Says:

    @Robear, I’m doing a little traveling right now, out on the front range of CO, & it was 60s today in CO Springs… saw people playing golf. So… yeah, no snow. This is a depressing town & I can’t wait to get out of it (too many strip malls and conservatives), but I did find some heads at Trinity Brewing Co–very cool place!

  25. Lycanthropist Says:

    thanks guys!
