here's one for all you #Seattle #oyster fans. and you get good tunes too!
 
This event will be the last Oyster Happy Hour until October, it is slated to be the single most attended event of its kind, with reservations topping all previous OHHs. One week ago I heard there were somewhere between 600 to 800 who had already made it known that they will arrive ready to get happy on some fresh oysters. There may be far more than that by the time Tuesday rolls around. At a dozen oyster per reservation, that's a lot o' oysters! Get your oysters on! Get'em while they're fresh and save a dozen for me!

the flyer was probably made by +Reggie Miles​ as music is only one of his talents.

relaunching the newsletter
might even get it right this time.

a good thing to subscribe to if you're interested in busking, ukulele, or music in general. a great thing to subscribe to if you're local-ish (Puget Sound area) and might want to catch a show sometime.

the link will show you what the latest one looks like.

getting a grip on the tablet
I seem to have figured out the WordPress Android app and the Mailchimp Editor app as well. at least to the point of usefulness, even if I haven't discovered all the tricks.

you may be sitting there having a deuce of a time giving even half a fuck about this news, but I'm seriously interested in both streamlining the "keeping up with the social network" stuff (cuz I got music to do) and in making sure I can do at least the majority of said stuff from my tablet (cuz I want to be able to do these things while I'm on the road or waiting for my turn at the market or whatever).

I still have a couple tech issues to clear up before I'm completely happy, but now I have hope. and many things are easier now than before.

I'll take incremental progress. that's how I'm learning to play the ukulele.

I need to feel the keys.  I just switched back to a mechanical keyboard because of that.  I'v played one of the projector keyboards and hated it.  It may be perfect for others though.

upgrading my fan page
according to the great google in the sky, I have 1800+ folks who've added me to their circles. I'm positive that many of you did so because of the ukulele (or just general music) connection. so I must be grievously disappointing a great number of you, especially lately as I've tried to post most of my muso stuff on my page rather than my profile. so the solution is?...

go follow my fan page:

www.google.com/+HowlinHobbitFans

a simple clicky on the follow button will do it. not only will you get all the ukulele and music biz news and rumors, you'll be eligible for special, just for followers stuff.

I've been working on upgrading it lately. the most recent update is a cover photo taken by that excellent Seattle photographer, +John Cornicello​. go on and scope it out!

never could get the hang of Februarys
I'm so glad today is the last day of February. it has been a bane of mine for decades now.

it's not like nothing good ever happens in February nor nothing bad ever happens in the rest of the year. nor is it that this particular February hasn't been fairly mild.

it's just the perfect storm between lousy weather which leads to lousy busking which, of course, leads to lousy money. toss in how you have less days to earn the money you need for your monthly bills (ever notice how your monthly bills seem to be the same amount whether there's 28 or 31 days in said month?) and it just seems to pile up.

surviving February is often one of my major yearly victories.

our two big galoots
sharing a patch of early spring sunshine. one of their sweet moments.

they're almost always either arguing with each other about who's king kitty or snuggling so sweetly you need insulin. it's an interesting life.

two urban fantasy books
one with a soundtrack CD. really! and you can win them.

I've read the first and enjoyed it thoroughly. the second is on my 'must read' list. check it out.
 
That website ("Dark Side of the Glass") which is giving away copies of Faerie Blood and Bone Walker (books, softcover editions) and the soundtrack album (CD edition) is wrapping up the entry phase this week, and the odds right now of any entry winning are really pretty good.

So if you have any interest in winning, go enter. If not, share this, so others can. Here's the URL:

Introduction
I've been a lot of things over the years, from dishwasher to private detective, but busking is my longest-lasting endeavor. I've done acts featuring magic tricks, juggling, balloon animals, guitar, harmonica, kazoo and ukulele.

For the last ten years I've been concentrating on being the Ukulele Ace.

You can often find me at the world famous Pike Place Market in Seattle but I play at all sorts of places.
Bragging rights
I survived the Great Comedy Scare of the 80's.
