Can't really add much, it was a fantastic weekend. The "gentleman" behind the table with Jeanne was JFC or Johnny from Fish Camp. A great guy! I'm stunned at how the parties have become big time events versus a "pre show load up" Next we'll be having papparazzi trailing Scotty around the venue.

Any input on how much money was raised for ACS or Billy?

I am digging mt little shot glass and tee shirt collection I'm amassing from the various years festivities.

Each year I swear I'm going to party less so I can rememeber everyone I met. I failed miserably again.

What the hell are we going to do in March next year?!? We need a temporary venue to fill in the gap or it's going to be a long drought until the 2008 summer tour!

Yeah, I'm learning today that there were a good many of people at both parties I didn't have the opportunity to meet. One of the only minor regrets of the weekend. That's one of the reasons I wore the "avatar" shirt the first night . . . I wanted to broadcast my identity and hopefully provoke some meetings . . . kind of like drawing flies to honey . . . or drawing flies to ****, depending on what you think of my personality.


I saw the shirt Droog and apologize for not stopping. Things were crazy and hectic and got lost in conversations.

Greetings folks. Back in Cincy.

I simply had a great time. The Beacon Jam For The Cure party was a blast.

“Who the hell is this strange man, and why the hell is he sleeping on my couch?

This was my first hang at the Beacon party and I have to thank Linniexx for kicking me in the backside and getting me there. I don’t know what took me so long, but, what’a ya’ gonna do?

You never really know if you’re friends with someone until you meet them face to face. After bugging me to come to the Beacon and NYC for a long time, and to goof off and have some fun, I finally get off the plane in Philly and Linnie greets me with a beer and a soft pretzel. Ok then, friends it is!! Thanks to Linnie for being a good host, a great friend, and an excellent tour guide…

After a fun tour of Philly, cheese steaks at Jim’s, and a walk on South Street for beers and exploring, and then on to the Italian Market area for other foods and shops, we regroup and decide to head north on Thursday night. Big Dave, Brent, Bluedad, Sky, Haisija, Tommy Booth and other folks are hanging at a bar in Easton, Pennsylvania. Haisija I have hung with before, but I had yet to meet everyone else. The bar is an hour and a half away…but so what, they’re there, let’s roll and party. It was an electric open stage night at the bar and BlueDad breaks the ice with a jam with the house band. Then Brent and Haisija grab up a guitar or two and rip into a couple, and both Tommy and Big Dave whooped ass on the bass, with Tommy playing with the most subtle drummer I’ve heard in days on the first one (cough, cough). Lord knows that Brent has enough to deal with, but he poured his heart out on the guitar anyway. It’s good to see that so many cats from this board can play. I did put my name on the list, but the bartender shut it all down before I could grab an axe and make a dent. He must have gotten word about my pickin’ Ouch! I probably would have cleared the place out anyway, so I actually would have done Mr. Bartender a favor.

There was a funny moment, however. As I poured another one from the five-dollar pitcher of beer, back behind me were a group of musicians who had come in after everyone else and were waiting in line to take a turn onstage. Brent and Jon are onstage gettin’ it, and the guy sitting behind me asks another musician next to him, with the intent of trying to find out how long the jam list is, ‘Who are these guys?” “A bunch of Allman Brothers fans, apparently. They’ve been playing Allman songs the whole time,” the other guy answered. Then the first guy answers back, “Allman Brothers songs? Sh*t, that’ll take all night.” Then, of course, I believe Brent takes off on YDLM.

After a day of exploring the Jersey coast on Friday, looking for some Cape May diamonds, eating a great burger, soaking up the sun, and taking in the sounds and the smells and the sights of the ocean that I haven’t experienced in about five years, it was time to take the train to NYC on Saturday morning. I think the NYC cab drivers honk their car horns in their sleep. It is so automatic that they get to the point where they honk the horn just to let the driver next to them know that his beard is itching, let’s do lunch tomorrow at 2pm, and I’ll trade you what’s left of my international calling card for a pack of cigarettes. I figured out that three short honks and two long ones equal, “Is that a fifty cent piece sticking out of that pigeon’s ass over there by the abandoned shoe?”

Soon I reach the Beacon lobby and see Big Dave and Haisija, and then start the day-long process of meeting everyone I can, while I can. Wharfy, Buppalo, HotlantaTim, Rusty, Donna, Jason, and the rest of us that walked to Central Park – very cool. We were a bunch that were full of multi-layered conversation as we walked, with various topics and greetings flowing everywhere simultaneously, and it was great. Plus, it was cool to see the rock there in Central Park where George Washington gave the Gettysburg Address. BlueDad also pointed out to me where they filmed the chariot scene from Ben Hur over by the fountain, so that was cool as well. What’a ya’ gonna do?

The party was a blast;
Susea – awesome. A pleasure. Great to meet you.
Eileen, it was a blast to hang with a true blue borough babe.
Randy Poe, Willie Howard, Joe Bell, and Marley, it was good to talk to some fellow brothers of the pen. Very cool.
TerriB, thanks for the leftover jello shots, good to meet you. See, I don’t bite!!
Lamdog, we’ll jam on it one of these days. Good to meet you,
Lefty, it was a pleasure and really did enjoy the awesome show at BB’s. I had big fun.
Wharfy, good to finally meet you, brother.
Ayla, my fellow Queen City friend, I have to go all the way to NYC to wake you up?? Always good to see you,
Haisija, always a pleasure. Your words in the park blew me away, and cool on the Japan connection with the kid and the camera.
JohnnyFishcamp and Jeanne– surf’s up, poles in the water, thanks for the conversation,
Topdroog, keep the humor coming. Had fun.
No1ToRun – a pleasure,
Slammer, thanks for the hospitality on the 15th floor, and the conversation,
Nypeachhead, good times. Go Bengals.
Snowflake, very nice to meet you in NYC,
Jacquie, good to meet you as well,
Karen – awesome, cool, thanks so much!!
Sari- thanks for hanging at BB’s, awesome.
NYC – Barb, cool on you as well,
Sang and Bob1954- a pleasure,
Harvey, a fine bloke you are, great talking to you. A pint of Watneys down the road.
Sheep, good to meet you,
Sky, a pleasure.
Hooch, absolooch!
Peachnutt – great to meet you, man. Prayers.
Lizzie, thanks for being sweet,
Alec, good to meet you, and I’ll pass on a howdy to Dallas Moore,
Big Dave, I’ll match your Hayseed with one Ice Fishing Ridge Runner,

Who am I forgetting??? Folks, if we had a conversation, remind me, as I know I am going to miss somebody. And, I am sure that I somehow missed a few people, so hopefully next time.

Then, as the night continued, it was onto the express from 72nd street down to Times Square and BB King’s. The Square was buzzing, and Lefty was jamming. It was great to meet and talk with Devon. He grew up in St. Louis, so we had that Midwestern thing going and had mutual friends in the biz. Good guy. The crowd was into Lefty’s music, and that was fun. As the night went on it was back on the train at 2am. That can be interesting that time of night, and it was, with conversations with a near-genius computer guy across the aisle who just got back from his company sending him to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates, which led to a young man in the booth ahead of us who was in the service over in the UAE for a while who joined the conversation, and it went on from there to a conversation with a young lady with the biggest blue eyes I’ve ever seen in the booth on the other side about her Comparative Literature major at Princeton University, and her sharing the story of the students sitting out on the grounds the other day and watching a squirrel do his thing as a hawk swooped down out of the blue and applied blatant carnage to the squirrel in front of everyone, making it his immediate meal. She laughed at the response of the ‘nature lovers’ around her that day, because all the students verbally gasped in unison, yelling out, “Oh my God,” as if the president had just got shot or something. Good times.

Anyway, all good, stories shared, libations consumed, interesting conversation, fun, flight back home was an hour and a half late, home at 1am last night, Beacon weekend over.

Thanks to everyone!!

Derek

Ok, here we go.....we are walking towards Central Park, looking for the John Lennon circle tribute in the park and the Dakota where he lived and ultimately died. Linnie stops us in front of the black iron fence at the Dakota where Lennon met his fate. Heartfelt conversations ensue about Brother John, and how stupid his fate was, taking a picture or two, and we are all looking at the walkway for a minute and taking in this piece of history.

One problem, it was the wrong gate, the wrong street, the wrong building, the wrong everything. The Dakota was one block over. And yet Jason, who is from flippin' Rhode Island and knows his way around NYC, knew that it wasn't the Dakota yet said nothing until a few steps later. Crazy, but polite. But, what'a ya' gonna do, eh? Humerous, to say the least.

All of a sudden we weren't just 'tourists,' we were 'touratistas.' And so, after paying our true respects at Lennon's tribute circle in the park, we kept walking and between Bluedad and I and others, it was ON! We weren't going to let that one go, so we had fun with it. Everywhere we went in Central Park- "Now, over here everyone, is the rock where George Washington gave the Gettysburg Address." "Over here, ok.....everybody look and get your cameras ready, this is where Thomas Jefferson wrote Huckleberry Finn."

Couldn't resist. But, Linnie is the one who got us out and walking of a Saturday morning, as we filled Central Park up with good conversation, and some blood flowing through some hungover brains. Good time.

DH

I'm so sorry that the my train was so darn late on Friday and I missed all but the last few minutes of the Sweeties' Party. I had an absolute ball on Saturday, though!

Scotty, major, major thanks to you (and Big Rich) for all that you did for Saturday's Jam for the Cure.

It is always great to see my "old" HTW friends and to meet so many new ones--yet it appears I still missed out on quite a few after reading this thread.

Well, thanks again for so much fun!

She's much cuter in person. We bowed to each other and walked on by. I had to go to the bathroom .

It was great to meet you Droogie. I noticed the shirt before I saw your name tag and figured it had to be you. It was so nice to meet so many great people that I only knew from the forum here. I won't even try to list names because I know I'ld leave some out. I think we got some great pictures at the parties...I'll post them in the media gallery later.

Special thanks again to Scotty for the room hook up. I have come to the conclusion the only way to DO the Beacon right is to BE AT the Beacon Hotel. I won't order Beacon show tickets again without booking a room simultaneously.
