Letters (to the OTS Penthouse Suite)
It was a slow week for mail, though thankfully a busy week (or two hour period) for fotographs. First Friday and the Final Four combined synergisticaly and alliteratively. I'm still not sure what happened with Kid Rock.
But first, to the letters...
From Austin reader Michael came this announcement with the title "My Imaginary Band"...
You may or may not be aware, and you may not care all that much, but I am very proud to announce that the new Monroe Mustang record, Monroe Mustang, the Imaginary Band, Regretfully Declines, was released this week on JagJaguwar
A free mp3 download of the opening track – "The Other Side" – is available here.
This is the first album by Monroe Mustang this century. Keeping with the times, this "record" is a digital release – you can purchase it here on the iTunes music store, or at Amazon
Believe it or not, we will play some shows this summer in Austin, Texas, and we have some more surprises up our collective sleeves.
We are committed to continuing forward at the glacial pace you've never heard of, come to conveniently forget about and/or not expect.
Be our friend and please help us spread the word.
Thank you for your attention. Pardon the intrusion. And don't forget to say hello if we haven't emailed in a while.
OTS Insider "Tops" emailed with this update about the Main Plaza opening...
"Sorry to see I missed out on the Highlife Ride last week, but I'm a little drained from overtiming. Main Plaza opens this weekend (Sunday evening) so after than things normalize a bit. You should come on out for that.... I'll send out an email soon enough."
For information about the Sunday night Main Plaza re-opening party check out this.
Normally, it's all about the letters coming in. On occasion, however, a letter must be sent out. This would be the first time. One can imagine it must have been important.
Yes, we're talking about a letter to the Mayor. It involves the recent prediction for cannibalism and related topics.
Meet the New OTS Correspondent: LA Chris
This is quite a score for On the Street. With "offices" in La Paz, San Luis Obispo, Denver, and now Los Angeles, the OTS news desk has expanded considerably.
LA Chris is gracious to share his inside knowledge of the Hollywood film scene. Here, he helps OTS clarify some issues from a few weeks back regarding Leprechaun 5: "Lep in the Hood". (To recall, the Leprechaun series was created by another Mark Jones, aka doppelganger #2 of OTS historians.)
