Man Oh Man Man

Psst: There's a great show tonight. I didn't want you to forget that always-fun Man Man plays Daniel Street in Milford.

It's a Manic Productions gig, and local act MT Bearington from Safety Meeting Records is opening. To me, that's a pretty killer gig.

First, let's talk about Man Man. Lord knows I wasn't as fond of 2008's "Rabbit Habits" as I was the Philadelphia band's first two discs, but, still, it's a pretty good record. Live, you never know what you're going to get with the experimental act. I've seen them in these parts three times, and the performance has varied from OK to spectacular. Let's hope tonight leans toward the latter.

What else? Well, MT Bearington is the moniker Matt Thomas uses for his solo stuff, and let me say that I'm a huge fan of Matt. His music is, sort of, a kind of psychedelic folk, and I'm looking forward to his set just as much as Man Man. And those are big words, my friend.

Here are a couple videos to get you as excited as I am:

PRF - Are we doomed never to see another weekend preview video again? I know the Register is trimming costs, but I'd be happy to send along my digital cam if that'll get us another cinematic masterpiece!

Saw Harry Potter last night.
Is it wrong of me to think impure things about Hermoine?

Ah, Weekend Previews. Well, our online department is going through many changes, which really means they're adding people and figuring out to do. So we decided to kill the videos for the summer, giving me more time to do nothing and them more time to figure out exactly what they want to be. I assume they'll be back after I return from my normal long August vacation. Although, when I cover the Pilot Pen this week, there will be many videos from there. I'm actually kind of excited for that. We'll see.

Nothing wrong with impure thoughts Hermoine. Nothing.

Glad to hear that the video spectaculars may be back soon.
