Katrina Stories: The Good

I found this post. You know, I hope it's true.Now that the National Guard is on the scene, perhaps things will get better.Perhaps.



New Orleans, Katrina, and the ability to communicate

2005-09-01T22:52:44.850-07:00

I had a couple of minutes to look around online during lunch to take a look at different articles and sites on the aftermath of the hurricane.One blog, Katrina Aftermath had some jarring information on the lack of infrastructure funding for levee maintenance. It also had some interesting notes about the real life benefit of text messaging. Text messaging has been the saving technology for us

2005-08-31T21:52:36.786-07:00

Here it is...The HillI forget how much I like this tune. I liked it the first time I heard it and I'm surprised I haven't loaded it up here yet. Bret's playing with Shaye, Dirk, and Steve. It's about Eagle Creek, Alaska, where they all met and from where they fled. I wonder if there are still outstanding warrants.Download, listen, podcast, thanks.



Ray LaMontagne, Griffin House, Mary Gauthier, Ben Weaver, Joseph Arthur, and Bret Phillips

2005-08-30T20:18:38.280-07:00

Bill Flanagan is senior vice president of VH1 and a contributor to my favorite, non-football Sunday morning program, Sunday Morning on CBS. This past Sunday he opened my ears and wallet to some fantastic singer-songwriters, Ray LaMontagne, Griffin House, Mary Gauthier, Ben Weaver, and Joseph Arthur.In my experience, Mr. Flanagan has consistently presented new music, and new ways of describing



Bret Phillips Podsafe Music: Summer Son free MP3 download

2005-08-25T19:28:31.676-07:00

I didn't want this song to get lost in the shuffle. Bret sent this along yesterday. I 've listened to it several times now. He wrote: "This is the saddest song I've ever written," which would lead you to believe it's some sappy piece of crap White Lion power ballad. Not so. It's insightful, relevant, and timely. Sad? Perhaps. Thought provoking for sure.Summer HeatDownload, listen, podcast,

2005-08-24T20:26:40.620-07:00

I got a flurry of email, new songs, and calls from Bret today. He's been busy recording a number of new bands at his Wax Poetic Recording Studios on Bainbridge island. Unforunately I was in strategy meetings and slinging scripts all day...Seems he got hold of a trumpeter to give his new demo song, Pollen Sneezes, a '70s vibe to it - at least I think it has a Herb Alpert vibe. Bret was raving

Jeanne Tripplehorn and Brad Pitt have nothing to do with Bret Phillips Podsafe Music, but...

I've got a new little goodie for you. Bret's been recording several different bands at his Wax Poetic Recording Studio, but he's still made time to slap some compression on a drum mike and pop out another sweet ditty.Check it out.Campground Crusading ClanAnd while I'm at it, I stopped by Jasmine Ash's site to download some of her clips. Bret's playing a show with her and the Bella Fays on Friday,



Creepy...plus a little comment spam

2005-08-13T20:49:33.550-07:00

I was wandering around Blogger following the stream of "Next Blog>>" directionlessness and came across a strange, abandoned blog. The post is creepy. The comment spam is four days long and, in juxtaposition, bitterly comedic. I don't know how else to describe this, just go take a look.Here.Feel free to report back on your thoughts.



Permanent...er, I mean president vacation

2005-08-13T14:09:30.326-07:00

Everyone deserves vacations.From the New York Times:Dubya will "by the end of this summer will have spent more time away from the White House than any other president in history."The same could be said about my time in high school.

PSA: KMRE 102.3FM Bellingham radio station

2005-08-13T13:56:38.896-07:00

Hey Kids, do you have a band, a flair for the acoustic, a demo, and a compulsion to hear it on air. Well, head on down to the new KMRE 102.3 FM broadcasting in full stereo power out of the American Museum of Radio and Electricity in beautiful downtown Bellingham and drop off your CDs! So that's what they do in there. I always thought it was some sort of Stephen King Dark Tower fan club.I saw an



Podcast Love: Op de Cast Gejaagd

Thanks to Bryan for dropping Bret Phillips's Chasing (The Intro) into his podcast.Check out the Dutch podcast, Op de Cast Gejaagd -which is a Dutch expression for "hunted on the Cast" - but I'm not yet worldly enough to know what that means. My apologies. I look forward to learning more.Time for bed.Dios mio, que una dia.I don't know what that means either.

Well now, Bret left me a message sometime over the course of this week (workblur) that he's got another fab-u-lous show in Portland, Orgeon. I think I might hitch up the horses and make the 5 hour drive to see him. Heck, the new baby ain't due till September, anyways...Git on down to the show!Friday, August 26McMenamins White Eagle Saloonwith Bella Fays and Jasmine AshBret would like to give you

Guns don't kill people. Bullets don't kill people. So, it's a good thing I have a small penis and a big ass gun

2005-07-31T17:51:14.320-07:00

Unfortunately, I needed to pick up a piece of research off the gawd-dong Internet, when I saw this old article staring at me from my Personalized Google Home Page. It says the Senate has passed pro-gun legislation limiting the liability of the gun manufacturers to be held liable for, well anything, if their products (GUNS and BULLETS) during a crime.There is a fantastic book, Balance of Power, by

Trendmapper: podsafe, podsafe music, podsafe music network

2005-07-28T11:39:35.770-07:00

I figured it was time to fiind out how quickly the podsafe music movement was growing. I'm also a big proponent of the Podsafe Music Network. So I added the three different variables/terms to the Trendmapper main list. Stay tuned...



Major record label Sony BMG admits to bribing for sucky-band airplay

2005-07-25T19:59:16.636-07:00

The Guardian has a story today about the admitted, underhanded tactics (read: pay for play) Sony BMG had delivered to different radio stations to play their artists. While this accusation comes as no surprise (actually, I think the very 1987 phrase would be "no, duh"), it does validate my opinion of the loathsome puppy-haters who run the major labels and prove my long-held conviction all the more

Podcast Love: The Roadhouse visit and the Podcastspherezoneplex

2005-07-23T11:43:11.403-07:00

At Bret Sounds, I am always appreciative of the time podcasters take to stop by. I assume the majority of folk have jobs (fingers crossed) and social lives, so taking time to produce a podcast is quite a commitment. What's more, I'm really jazzed when I feel like I might have actually contributed a little something to the bigger scheme of things. For instance, Tony was kind enough to quote a



Congratulations to Bret Phillips and his Wax Poetic Studio

2005-07-23T09:48:57.373-07:00

CNN/Money Best Places to Live 2005 ranked Bainbridge Island SECOND out of 100 top places in America. As a Bainbridge Island, Washington musician, resident, and business owner, Bret Phillips, his two St. Bernards and his Wax Poetic Studios probably had nothing to do with it. But then again, when every resident counts, Bret and his kin might have made the difference over lame ass Naperville,
