the closest thing we have in boston to anything like that, as far as i know, is the sugar bowl, which you pay i think 10 bucks for and it's all you can eat ice cream from a ton of places, from ben and jerrry's and hagen daaz to local places.
yeah, i've never gone for one reason or another. it's part of this huge thing the city does the month of may. last weekend, they had a music festival. i couldn't go cuz i had to work it rained anyway. and on memorial day weekend they have a symphony play. also, throughout the whole month, the "salute" one country (this year it's turkey) with exhibits, cooking, etc.

oh i love atlanta it's in my top five cities i'd love to live in as far as the u.s.

ooh we have something like that too, sometime in the summer, but it's probably nowhere as huge as boston's.

that's what i'm doing. i'm putting genres in that people are gonna be like when they see them. at least i hope. they'd expect them of others, but not of me.

i think i might add one more song, though.

Just listened to The Walking Of Pertelotte by The Appleseed Cast. This is something the forum might really take a liking too. I know Axver will enjoy that track.

so that's like, 1 a year, and now 2 in 6 months?

I hope people don't get sick of it before di 6. I don't know that I'd be any good at it, but I am making a list...

I've had ideas floating about, but I haven't done anything yet.

We tend to have two a year or so - there was a big gap between I and II, and then we did some mini-tournaments in between that spread it out some more. Ax, Screwtape, and I did a Prog Island version that was really fun.

In fact, I'd like to do another mini one at some point, based on another genre, like electronica or something.
