Azkath also made some recommendations as well, so interested parties may wish to check out 2012 releases from Devo Spice, Saltillo, Ashes You Leave, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Inviolate, and One-Eyed Doll.
So, with all that considered, there wasn't a lot of time for discussions, although we did take a moment to marvel over the fact that Facebook seems to be chock full of Brony sites. And no, I'm not associated with any of them...
Joe was shocked to discover that there is actually now a Facebook emoticon to represent...well...Poop...
Yep, you read that correctly. Just type :poop: into a comment box, and there will be a  little brown pile of turd showing for your troubles.
 Remember, that's   :poop:   
I've already had a little fun using this to comment on Justin Bieber posts, not to mention Metallica/Lou Reed posts regarding the LuLu album. Think of the possibilities!
Let's see...no Jeffie this week. Turns out that, according to Azkath, he's suffering from Post-Randy Disorder. Really, I can't imagine what I could have done that traumatized him so bad. I mean, how many times have we all dealt with similar treatment from him, and none of us are substantially out of whack.
Okay, none of us are precisely sane, either, but we all came that way before being exposed to Jeffie.
At least, I'm pretty sure we did...
So, not sure what's up for our next show, but I've got a birthday coming up, and it looks like we may have an Old-School Night to look forward to very soon. 2013 is off to a pretty solid start, I'd say!
