IM was in the stations to do a live performance today. I met her after the show and asked her if she knew about UU. She didn't :mad: She was apologetic - perhaps because I was wearing a UU t-shirt - and that she's afraid that she's not a very good ukulele ambassador. I said, "Hey, at least you're playing one." But she says "Hello" to everybody here.

Her uke is a tenor Renaissance. Looks like a cedar top and walnut sides and back. Aquila wound strings. It's a pretty thing!

She didn't want pictures taken because she woke up right before the noon show (it showed, too. She did an awful set!). But I did take a pic of my uke she signed and christened "Ingrid".

That's pretty cool. Make sure you do a search to learn how to protect that autograph.

I've heard scotch tape is the way to go.

Most of the musicians that come in on Fridays (for our sister station) I don't have a clue who they are. The most exciting for me in recent months were (your bud) Zee Avi and Michaelson. I was disappointed in Michaelson's performance.

My favorites though were the classical guys. I got to interview Pierre Boulez for 45 minutes once and interviewed choreographer Paul Taylor. I spent about an hour talking to Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach) a long time ago. He was so nice.

Peter Schickele?! Nice! I'd love to talk to that guy.

I should have sent you some GIGAPUS stickers for Ingrid. :)

Too right!

This has been a freaky day. Erin McKeown is in the building right now. I'm going to have to ambush her to get her to sign the uke. I love Erin soooo much! I just heard her say she plays ukulele!!

Wow, cool uke! And soooo cool you got her autograph on it! I thought about taking my uke last night for her to autograph (but glad I didn't): it turned out to be anything but an intimate kind of concert, with no autographing out where ordinary folks would be (thinking about the last two concerts I went to at the 20th Century--Jonathan Coulton who sorta just hung out and was very accessible; and Mary Fahl, where they had a table set up for her to sit and sign CDs and such).

Yeah, her show ran really late here in Cincinnati last night. It finished about 11:15pm. Then it's a two-hour drive down to Louisville from here. And that's if they were able to hop immediately into their bus and get straight to sleep when they got there, which doesn't sound probable.

She was very cool and sounded wonderful last night. I'm sorry she didn't sound good this morning. :( Honestly, the show was awesome last night!

But I digress.

I like Ingrid. And I wish I'd done something to protect the signature on my one uke... it's faded quite a bit :(

Slap some tape on that sucker.

Strange... I have never seen this type of beer in Germany. Does it say where (which city) it is brewed?

Ahh, I should have looked it up before asking stupid questions. So for everyone who wants to know:

"St. Pauli Girl beers are brewed and bottled by the St. Pauli Brauerei, which is located within the Beck's brewery in Bremen, Germany. [...] The beer is only produced for export and is not sold in Germany."

I probably don't know ALL types of beer sold in Germany, but I'm sure I would have noticed this one!
Does it taste like Becks, btw?

It's a similar style to Becks, but not as flavorful. I think it was crafted to compete with Heineken here in the states, and it's (St. Paulis) a better product, in my opinion.

I like the label but prefer Beck's Dark. ;)

That makes no sense to me :(
If its brewed there, why isn't it sold in Germany at all?!
Is it cheaper for overseas companies to have their breweries in Germany?

Cheaper to brew in US for US market. Kirin, Sapporo, and Asahi (Japanese) beers now made in US or Canada and not as good as the stuff made in the old country. I believe Foster's (Oz) beer is also made in North America. I'm sure there's a few more I've missed.

I saw a live performance of hers on PBS not so long ago that was pretty good. I also have to say that I do kind of like some of the songs on her "Be OK" disc as well. She's got a really lovely voice and the songs with the most minimal backgrounds seem to work best for me. Less is more for her.

As for beer. I fortunately live in Minnesota. They take beer seriously around this part of the Midwest and we've got plenty of local ones that are on par with anything you'll find anywhere in the world. It's getting colder so it's time to start quaffing some Surly Bender (http://www.surlybrewing.com/index.php) to keep warm.

hey alan! i used to work in a sign shop...i had james hill autograph my $24 'mahalo'—he didn't wince or anything!(...i had a gold marker that eventually rubs off, so being a sign guy at the time, i covered that signature with a piece of clear uv-protective vinyl laminate...worked like a charm! (and i'm sure more durable than scotch tape...)
i would highly recommend this stuff—just walk into a neighbourhood signshop and ask for a sample piece, most guys would be happy to oblige(or charge a very minimal amount of cash...)!
cheers!

Yes, I've got an old casette and D.A.T. somewhere (it's over 10 years old!). If I can find it, I'll PM you and send you a copy.
