So with the coming of Spring, this issue was going to focus on outdoor shows and such. But as usual, things got busy and I procrastinated. Then I got my first major haircut in something like 7 years! So now I’m stuck on what the subtitle and theme of this issue should be. My old favorite would be some paraphrased version of my favorite Spring saying “Spring is in the air... so are lust, dust and pollen. I think I’m allergic to all three.” Or I could go with some haircut theme: Haircut 1, Shaved, Baldy, Curly. I think I’ll go with the older idea. Hmm, what if I told ya those Spring allergies are responsible fer the hair loss???

On a slightly (only slightly) more serious note: Cringe will be offering WWW page space and design to bands, organizations and other non-corporate or non-business type local music related entities. If ya happen ta be a corporate or business entity, I may still be able to help out, but the procedures, payments and such will most likely differ. Fer now, if yer interested in web space at the Home of Cringe, contact me. I’m willing to take recordings, band paraphernalia, cheap tix and/or money as payment for these services. I also reserve the right to pick and choose from those interested. Even I have my time limitations and priorities (sleep, food, fun, work, etc.).

The next issue of Cringe may or may not be in July. I’m contemplating skipping the next issue since things tend to die down a bit around here in the Summer. If there is a Summer issue, it will once again focus on updating the local recording label catalogs and maybe recording studios. Any input? In either case, the Web site is continually updated, added to and expanded. News, reviews, info and the like are generally added to the Website a couple times a month. So, yes, it does make sense to send in such items as they come to you.

Have fun, Joel Treadway

Event ... ually
I am writing to request a copy of the newest edition of Cringe. I think your web site will eventually be an important tool in aiding the exposure of the great Columbus music scene to other parts of the nation and the rest of the world. Thank you.

Cringe In-Pressed?
Thanks fer the review of Bigfoot. Glad that you liked them so much. Who knows maybe your review will end up in a press kit somewhere and you could feel good about it.

I’ve been meaning to ask you about the people that you said wanted Earwig to come and play in Minneapolis (right?). Well we might be headed up that way for a few shows in May , so I could use the contact info.

Thanks and hello.
- Lizard of Lizard Family Music/Earwig ([email protected] or http://www.lfm.com/)

Hey Joel... Thanks for Cringe. You do a heeeeelll of a job!

How Happy
Hey Man...what’s up ... I sing for the band (Triggahappy) and it seems that I forget to submit our entry into Cringe all the time. If this is the way to submit it, that'd be nice, but if not just tell me...

I finally [found] your web site, it's pretty nifty! ... thanks for the help.
- John of Triggerhappy ([email protected] / http://www.infinet.com/~ggeoffre/triggahappy.html

Joel’s comments: I take submissions anyway ya can get ‘em to me. Of course emailing them to me at [email protected] is the easiest (semi-automated) way for me. But my general email address ( [email protected]) and any version thereof will get to me too. Submissions can be mailed, dropped at my door or phoned in (maybe even faxing soon). Remember, Cringe accepts submission and updates to the Web site continuously. The deadlines are just fer the next compiled/hardcopy issue.

Happy Hour
Great thing your doing. A real plus to all music lovers. However, speaking only for myself I enjoy getting a litte fired up before the show, if ya know what I mean? Do you think you could include happy-hour places around campus areas? I think that addition to your postings of weekly events would truly round things out.

Thanks for your time, and keep up the great work! If there is anything I could assist in with the happy hour thing let me know. - Kevin J. ([email protected])

Joel’s Comments: I told Kevin if he and his drinkin’ buddies compile the happy hours, I’ll include it on the website. I ain’t doin’ it myself ‘cause, aside from not being a big drinker to begin with, I hate beer. Besides, I like to focus on more musical aspects. If anyone else has info like this they’d like contribute, add or request, let me know.

Can We Play?
Hi Joel. Can you please add Tera to your mailing list? We want to play trivia. Thanks. - Michelle ([email protected])

Cut Short
I was trying to access the Bands section of the 6.1 edition of Cringe, but there is some sort of error in the source code. The reviews and band descriptions only go down to Gaunt (which is incomplete also).

I was trying to access this Bands page because I was trying to print out the review of the new Mike Rep and The Quotas album that was in this section. Thanks.
- Bill ([email protected] or http://er4www.eng.ohio-state.edu/~hartw)

Joel’s comments: Bill helped me discover a problem that anyone else out ther using Fetch 3.0 on a Mac may want to be aware of: it seems Fetch 3.0 has an upload file size limit of 32k - anything beyond the 32k point is snipped. 32k is a magic Mac text file size limit, so this is probably a Mac system limitation that this version of Fetch doesn’t bypass properly. Some older versions of Fetch don’t seem to have this problem , so try reverting. If you notice problems like this, let me know - I got to the above error report within a few hours of Bill’s sending it. The fix only took a few minutes beyond that. I ain’t slackin’ all the time.
