Nice blog here! Also your site loads up fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my site loaded up as fast as yours lol
My friends at Fishytunes.net are the best! Ana Ammann, Publisher of the awesome online Oregon Music News found them and I reached out. I love their site! They were kind enough to take time to re-do my site on WordPress in a rush situation, so it was live in time for the San Diego Film Festival. Please check out their site for excellent reviews, and tell your friends.
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
Thanks for writing and for the suggestion, Jed! And do come back.
I love encores!
Hey Pennie I love your blog and pretty much your life, you have no idea of the amount of times I wish I lived in those times when everything was just rock n’ roll love. I know I can’t expect to be someone else and that I should focus on myself and what I like but I just can’t help it when I read your story. I will definitely be back I really want to know more about you and your wonderful expirience, so please post soon 🙂
Love and Rock.
Hi, I’m watching Almost Famous for the 100th time and thought I’d send an email to you to say hi and tell you how inspiring you are. Its my favorite movie of all time. I’m 14 years old and I have an older brother and sister. They have a band together and I love being their groupie. I feel like I am a bit of a groupie or “band-aid”. My siblings and I are constantly going to concerts for bands that hardly anybody knows about. We’ll sometimes wait 4 hours to get front row at a show and then we wait a little after to meet them. Live music is so incredible. Better than anything that could be recorded and put online or a CD. It’s the excitement, the feeling of all being a part of something. Everyone is there for one reason: the music. It’s thrilling to meet new people who share the same taste in music as you because that usually leads to more things in common. The music isn’t as great as it was back in the 70’s or 90’s, those are my favorite times of music, not that I was their to hear it, but I do love finding new old bands to obsess over. The music on the radio these days isn’t real music to me. Some of it is catchy, sure, but now it’s all computers and electronics doing the work. I wish I lived in the 60s/70s. Those were the golden years. But I heard once that everyone thinks that the time they’re living is boring and that everybody has a preferred decade. How was it living in such an exciting time? Maybe it wasn’t as exciting to you but to me it sounds so rad. This all probably sounds pretty boring to you… I’m not even sure if you’re reading this because I bet you’re a busy person, but if you are what advice do you have for me? As a misfit high school girl? I love how you started something the Flying Garter Girls. It shows that there are real women who appreciate music and bands but still respecting themselves, and it also sounds like a ton of fun. The thing I find the most interesting about you is that you actually had a plan. The 3 years you gave yourself. I think that is just so brilliant! I’m a person who loves to know whats going to happen, to have a plan for my life. At the same time though I want to have fun, to be wild and loose! Just live in the moment and let fate run its course. So thank you for helping me understand that I can have both. I aspire to be like you. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me.
Hey Ellie, I know this was written to Pennie but you mentioned that you were hoping for some advice for a misfit high school girl. While I wasn’t a 70s groupie (I’m only 25 now), I am one of many modern day groupies, so I just wanted to let you know that you’re not alone and you’re not the only one who still feels the way Pennie and the other vintage groupies did about music. There are still plenty of us living this lifestyle! As for advice, I was also a misfit high school girl, and wow, it sucked! It was awful! What you need to keep in mind, though, is that high school ends. It ended for me, and it’ll end for you too. Someday you’ll be 21 so you’ll be able to go to all the shows you want, and you’ll meet new, interesting people who will become your friends. Some of these people will be musicians who become your lovers, maybe boyfriends. It will happen. The waiting is hard, but someday, it’ll happen.
Pennie !!! Your amazing. !
Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently
about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

it will be renowned, due to its quality contents.
Admiring the time and effort you put into your website and detailed information you offer.
It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date
rehashed material. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my
