Also, here's an email Darren sent out to friends and advisors.
All available on the Events page at Florida Creatives, there are some new additions to the page there.
First of all is this swanky promotional banner: I'm a fan. Also, notice the other new banner in the sidebar.

I really expected more from this show. I wanted to be on one extreme or the other:
1) Completely abusing the audience, like the story Marc tells about how Gene and Dean won't start the show until someone orders them a pizza.
2) Completely entertaining at every moment, like a Flaming Lips show. There was no stage banter, the guys were very dry on stage - the drummer and keyboardist had more personality than the Ween Brothers.
Alex Rudloff asks, Why Does Orlando Radio Suck?
I guess I just don't understand the business behind local radio. I'm sure margins are tight and everything is pre-planned and digital now. It just sucks, that's all.
Thank god for my iPod and my tape deck connector.... New school meets the old.

Yes, it's the first month of the new year, but the holiday hangovers are a long-gone memory. It's just the right time to head downtown for a drink!
Come meet some new people, catch up with old friends and get a clue about what's going on in the coming year.
Last night, I talked to (more like was interviewed by) Stephen McKenney Steck, the President Emeritus of the local PBS and NPR affiliates here in town. He was very interested in what I've done and what I'm doing, and he asked me several times to send him links to everything I talked about. While composing the email, I noticed a pattern. I would talk about the project and then I felt compelled to say "but this is what it's really supposed to accomplish". This gets me thinking...
