We have a lot of new additions to the site this week, but first we want to give an upcoming birthday shout out to the illustrious Joseph Doyle! Yet another Taurus in the Frames camp, no wonder they’re such a tough bunch. Have a rad day Joe!
We have a really exciting add to the site for you this week that we were giddy about having show up in our inbox. The whole gig from 21 November 2006 in Amsterdam at Melkweg. It was filmed for and aired on the now defunct fabchannel.com. One word: TURBIT. It’s a really fantastic gig with an interesting set list and we’re thankful to Lino for sharing it with us! FYI videos are still being added, but we’ll Tweet at ya when it’s all done.

Quick follow up to my mention of the marathon last week- Despite lots of rain at the start leaving us all with soggy shoes and socks and making the last 10K quite difficult, I finished on my feet just a little slower than I set out to be. It was a challenging, humbling and uplifting experience and it only took until the next day for me to say I think I could do it again sometime (I’m lookin’ at you Dublin). The best part is we raised almost $2700 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, woo! Thanks to all who wished me luck.
Have a great weekend everyone….J+S
