Pernice Bros email mentions & New Scuds Tour!'s post about the Scud Mountain Boys reunion gets a mention in the Pernice Brothers email list.

Wanna hope that Joyce took the "According to a typically-snarky-and-long-winded-email-filled-with-inside-jokes-I'm-outside-of, from the Pernice Brothers email list" comment as it was intended, a friendly ribbing from a fan who, himself is prone to snarky-and-long-winded-emails-filled-with-inside-jokes-everyone-else-is-outside-of.

But, alas, the internet hath no tone, and if you aren't familiar with the label, or it's proprietor, perhaps you don't understand his sense of humor, and I think she took offense.

was all meant in good, self-deprecating fun, as I take many of the Pernice Bros emails to be (which I've read every word of since W's first term in office).

Love you (and your emails) Ms. Linehan!

Nick Zwart (Desolation Wilderness/Electric Sunset) Launches Kickstarter for Short Film

(Photo by Sarah Cass)
One of my favorite dudes who ever lived in Olympia, but now doesn't live in Olympia, is former Desolation Wilderness and Electric Sunset (K Records) frontman, Nick Zwart. Nick put full-time music on the backburner and moved to L.A. a while back to pursue his film career. He now lives in one of the coolest houses I've ever had the pleasure to be in, on the steepest street I've ever had the displeasure to drive on.

He recently launched a Kickstarter to fund his first major short film, King Leaves the Kingdom. It seems pretty strange, (and ambitious for $11K), and I'm excited to see what comes out of it. Your patronage and generosity could be rewarded with film stardom as an extra in the "pool party" scene, or a producer credit. You will no longer be a liar when you are trying to impress people at the bar! "No, really, I AM a producer! I swear! Check IMDB!"
