HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — Name That Band

The Otis has posted his newest soon-to-be-a-hit single “Beer Run” on his myspace page. Check it out. And then come back here and suggest a new name for the band comprised of two out of three original members of Coeur d’Alene’s pop-punk original, Yer-A-Nation. If your band name is selected, The Otis is offering a role in the upcoming music video and a free copy of the finished CD — Mommy Dearest/BrodH20 here.

And now a word from The Blogger Formerly Known As CodaDave (who soon’ll be online again): “I jammed with people until 1am this morning, and we played all the songs we could think of. I stepped down from the stage for a while to get something to drink; someone else got up and played my guitar, and another guitar player, and a drummer joined him. They began a long jazz-fusion type of jam. So what did I do? I picked up the Bass, and began playing that, and I’m not a bass player! But it was fun, gave me a chance to be creative in another way. I’m meeting some really nice people down here.”

*Bill McCrory/Whitecaps takes the SR to task for ignoring alleged Open Meeting law violations by the City Council and Lake City Development Corp. in naming Her Sandiness as its government “citizen of the year” here.

*Katrina/Notes on a Napkin confesses that she — unlike any of the rest of us — has always suffered from Foot-In-Mouth Disease here.

*Cis/From A Simple Mind isn’t worried about the preview she got of Retirement Husband (when he was off four days in a row for the holidays) because she has a years-worth of honey-dos waiting for him here.

*”I started to do some New Year cleaning and housekeeping yesterday. Part of that job is to “clean out the crap,” or go through a much of my stuff as possible and throw out the stuff I no longer need. This is not as easy as it sounds” — Dan Gookin/Wambooli Lunch here.

*Stebbijo has completed 5 days of the Beyonce fast, and only cheated once as she ates some cashews and a mouthful of pizza here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour, a UI Vandal through and through, reports that she got vandalized for posting a comment applauding Boise State’s wunnerful Fiesta Bowl win here.

Meanwhile, “Sweet Herb” recalls the opening of Highway 54 access to Bayview here, Raymond Pert revels in the beauty of Eastern Washington here, Family Phil reviews 2006 here, Amyrebba’s provides her 2007 resolutions here, Trish is doing 150 ab-busters per day here, JeanC’s about to take the Xmas tree down here, and Dr. Jim has flu on his mind here.
