Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

I’m gonna give this another go.  Follow along with me, won’t you?

First, I begged people to sign the petition to get my all-time favorite band YES into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (hint: go do it if you haven’t yet.)

Then, I announced to the world how lucky I was that I was going to get to see my favorite band *and* get to meet them.

Shortly after that, I lamented about the tour being canceled the day before my chance to meet them and losing out on the opportunity.

[time passes]

Well, it’s ON AGAIN!   WWWOOOOOOO-oo-HOOOOO!

I’m so pumped again!  On July 15th, YES and openers ASIA will be rocking the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, TX, only about 3hrs north of Austin.

Possibly the best part of this whole thing is that they completely branded and renamed the series in my honor:

Isn’t that sweet?  They named it the “Hall Series.”  *sniff*

And how cool is it to have Asia be the opening act?  Steve Howe will actually be doing double-duty and playing both with YES and ASIA, along with “original Asia members, including ex-YES and Buggles keyboardist Geoff Downes, ELP’s Carl Palmer on drums and former King Crimson and UK bassist/guitarist/vocalist John Wetton” (quoted from press release.)

Hmm.  Maybe I should try and host a blogger meet up the day before or after the show in the DFW area.  I *just* might be popular enough to get about 1/3rd of a person to show up.  Interesting.  I’d make sure I didn’t take appointments for it.  I’d call it WHALL-CON (get it? walk-on? no appointments?  I crack this house UP)

This is gonna be so. totally. whallsome!

And lo, the people did comment thus:

      Janelle – I do have some blog brand / marketing ideas that I just need to spend some time on. This one just makes it easier when I do find time to do it.

      • Janelle says:

        If you ever do get “Whallsome” on a shirt, I’m totally buying it! I mean, you can’t say it without laughing. It’s just a fun word to say. “Whallsome”. I love it!

    I thought the $225 price tag seemed excessive… until I saw that you get a YES canvas tote with the package. How cool is THAT?!?

    • whall says:

      Dave2 – yes, awesomeness has a high price. But I figure I’ll probably get $300-$350 for the bag on ebay, and I’ll just swipe a couple while I’m there.

    Instead of Asia, the opening band should have been Whall & Oates.

    Because the name “whallsome” has garnered so much attention I decided to make it a trademarked political sign.

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.
