You can comment here or <a href="">there</a>.</strong></p><p>Hey, yeah I know it&#8217;s bean a while! Lots of things going on and sometimes out and out laziness, but your Salad is ON THE JOB!</p> <p>I continue to SHOUTcast it from the rooftops every Tuesday night on Dementia Radio with &#8220;Power Salad&#8217;s Cream Cheese Library&#8221;, 2 hours of nuggets from my collection each week&#8230;also I&#8217;ve been working on the railr&#8212;-er, my recording booth and I do believe all the kinks are worked out (not to mention some yardbirds and dave clark fives.)</p> <p>I-CON was a lot of fun back in April, having dinner with ShoEboX of Worm Quartet while a lounge band pumped out the cheezy hits, late night snackies and weirdness with Devo Spice and his dad, trotting out the dementia for new friends, and a whole mess of seeing family and old friends. Mrs Salad and the crouton joined me at the end of the weekend and we spent the remainder of the week &#8220;doing&#8221; Lawn Guyland as well as a glorious day in Manhattan, during which we took in a Disney show on Broadway and had pizza at the *first* pizzeria in the US, Lombardi&#8217;s in Little Italy. Yo.</p> <p>So now my sights are set on Iron City, as I will be performing at the Mensa Annual Gathering in Pittsburgh on July 4th at 730pm. Wanna thank W Randy Hoffman for hipping me to the opportunity, because it means not only will I be once again performing alongside my demented buds Rob Balder and ShoEboX (Worm Quartet), but I will be ending my show just in time to catch the weekend&#8217;s keynote presentation by the one and only Dr. Demento!! I haven&#8217;t seen the good Doctor in person since 2000 at ALCON 2000 in Chicago, so this should prove to be a great weekend. Then later in July I will be back in the Pittsburgh area for CONfluence, with many other performers including the geek-rock of Toyboat, with Eric Coleman, who inspired me to go ahead and buy a Roland Handsonic drumpad - teehee&#8230;.</p> <p>The next Power Salad FuMP is scheduled for the end of July, so I will be frantically writing and recording in the meantime - what&#8217;ll it be? Who knows&#8230;.there are a couple of idears on the drawring bawd, but now that my equipment scenario appears to be settled, recording should be easier and sound better. Stay tuned!!</p> <p>So then to recap: I-CON win, Mensa Yikes!, CONfluence soon, DementiaRadio Ridiculous, and Salad BUY!!!!!!</p> <p>Thanks for reading and catch you all soon!</p> Mon, 15 Jun 2009 01:00:00 -0500 Power Salad at I-CON this weekend! <p style="border: 1px solid black; padding: 3px;"><strong>Originally published at <a href="">Power Salad</a>.
