 Maybe I'm an optimist , but I was thinking at least one person would say something ,or maybe say " hey I voted for you".

If anyone voted , thanks.  I know Tim voted & I think maybe plj ,too. Thanks to you guys. It's fast & easy to do.

Any & all help greatly appreciated.  ;)

I still don't know if my votes are registering.  I got the email through today.  But when I clicked the link, I didn't get the confirmation page - just a page with the background image on...

Orb,

Just saw this, and voted for you.  I'll try to remember to do it daily.
If you do get to go, be very careful.  It's a crap neighborhood.

Thanks, Vkat !   I suppose they will have the riff raff fenced out. So I guess be careful parking & all leading in. ( As a paying customer probably)    :( 
Tim is a dispatcher up there , so maybe he can give me some advice in street smarts or whatever.Or maybe we'll go to the festival together.

I'm falling behind, but vote anyway.Much appreciated.

 ;)

Thanks , Keith.  I'm way behind.....everything is a learning lesson. Verification of my lack of fan base, but I'm slowly building it. I'm getting some other RNation users as fans. I'm up to 67 fans on there ( wupp ) . Unfortunately, almost none nearby.It still helps,though.

On an unrelated note......I met a new techno artist from St. Louis on Facebook. She has a couple shows coming up in some of the only venues available for an act like 'orb'. So we are going to hook up for some shows. She said she would put a show together for us in September or October. I'll have video tape rolling  for sure. Get out of the basement studio for a change.
Got to get in shape.Or slow down. Last night I was wailing on my acoustic drums & after about 10 minutes I was huffing & puffing - a lot more physical than my DK rig.
It reminds me - some friends have a cover band - old geezers like me - but they only play once a month. They asked me to join , but I would have to rehearse on my own at least 3 days a week to stay in shape & it's just not worth it.  Yeah ,show up every month & knock out some Keith Moon & Bonham - NOT. Another group of friends has a WHO tribute band. When they held auditions - ONE GUY showed up. I'm thinking most drummers didn't have the ,er, guts to even answer that request. He's a geezer like me , just puts his head down & wails away.
They did a gig & played Quadraphenia - whole album in order.
 
I wonder what's going on with AM's contest ?

Thanks Scotty .   ;D  You've restored my optimism. I see my votes as half the amount needed to win....NOT half the amount needed to lose.   :D

Don't forget to become a fan on Reverbnation, if you please. I won't spam you with junk mail. I'm #4 on my little local chart. I'd love to chant  : " I'M # 1...I'M # 1 !  At least for a day or two.   >>>> mini secret - I have a new sequencer song - "Fixin ta Blow"  & it has a mystery vocalist. First song I've uploaded with singing.<<<<

Here is the link. First song on the list.

Should I delete this thread ? The contest is long over. I didn't get real far...but...

Thanks for the votes guys !  This show is next weekend, but I'm leaning away from heading to Chi town.

No biggie. & thanks,too. 
I'm just wondering if this thread needs to be viewed anymore ?  It's expired & kind of a waste of time & space.

Nah, leave it up. Important historical reference. On the other hand, I'm getting a fair amount of follow-up emails from North Coast Music Festival though, so I certainly won't need reminding to vote for you next time!

OK ,Scotty. That makes sense.

I guess maybe you should put NCMF in your spam or block them. The concert is this weekend.Who needs it,until next year, if it is successful - this was the first try with this festival. It seems to be selling good. I'll leave mine in & watch them brag of the success - I think it's gonna fly.

Thanks for chiming in Scotty.   ;)
