Without a doubt, the funniest thing I have seen in a while whilst perusing the Erie listings regarding a gathering at Erie's Hookah Cafe:

Both days are bad for me. The 1st is my kids first marching band gig and Sept. 9 is Erie Pagan Pride Day.

Clarion artist Mark Franchino's work is highlighted in the Brew House gallery.

Following the wild success of the Ilya Kaminsky reading, a reader sent in a link to another, although regional, deaf poet, Stephen Michael Verigood.

Jerome Wincek has released a limited edition of his new album, Astral Road. Support a local artist for $10 and get some fine music at the same time. Now, can we talk into a Franklin show.

For the third year in a row, the Pittsburgh Jewish-Israeli Film Festival is offering free screenings for school groups. Teachers can choose from four films, being shown as weekday matinees from March 5-23 at the SouthSide Works Cinema.

On Saturday, February 17th, Erie's Brewerie at Union Station is sponsoring a tour and sampling of 5 area micro breweries: The Erie Brewing Company, Sprague Farm and Brew Works in Venango, PA, North Country Brewing in Slippery Rock, PA and a sneak peak at Voodoo Brewing Company that will be opening soon in Meadville PA.

The New York Times profiles the resurgence of soul music.

The Orlando Sentinel examines why everyone loves the banjo.

Venango County Ghost Stories is pretty much self-explanatory, but it's a real active and I must, fom the dates recollected in the entries, have known the author, but I'll be darned if I can figure out who she is. Regardless, a fun read.

Okay, that's about the fifth time that's happened-- I don't see your new post until a day or two after its post-date. And I now how to clean my cache and all that good computery stuff.

I can't quite figure out who the writer is, either, though I should also know. If you look at her other blog-- http::// -- you can get more clues. I've decided it's rude somehow to try to id her, but it's hard not to be curious...

It's actually my fault - I started writing it last night, then saved it and published it this morning.
I do know the writer's name, but I can't place her - maybe Venango's a bigger place than I thought...
