Cameron tells it like it is.

Talking with Cameron, Natalie's 3-year-old nephew, during a set break
at Sam Hill's...

Cam: I'm tired. Are you tired?
Hoot: I am tired, but I can't go to bed.
Cam: Well, you should go to bed so I can go to bed. Just go to bed.

Best Thing Ever

My love affair with the South Carolina coast continues...

In Charleston they turn the only domesticly grown tea in America into
awesome sweet tea...

Then they take that sweet tea and turn it into Vodka... Take a moment
to just soak that in... Last night at our show some awesome local
Charlestonians bought us some shots... Tastes just like iced tea... By
the taste I figured 30, maybe 40 proof... Nope. 70.

If you're ever down in this area check this stuff out...

This is what makes America great...


Lazy Beeches

On Hilton Head Island they have hammocks outside the grocery store...
Why hasn't anyone else caught onto this?

My new favorite barfly

Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know
It's that damn hippo's fault.

Harold Thomas Smalls, ladies and gentleman.

So Harold Thomas Smalls came into the bar, with his guitar...and he came up and sang a song for us:

"God Bless America,
God Bless the USA,
God Bless America,
God Bless the USA,
God Bless America,
God Bless the USA,
God Bless America,
God Bless the USA...."

Smalls: I got a song for you, you can play this one:

(sings) Wise men say only (unintelligible mumbling),
But I can't help falling in love with you....

Hoot: Did you write that?
Smalls: I sure did, and you just tell people that. I'll make you more money that you could ever imagine!

God Bless YOU, Mr. Smalls. God Bless you. And America. And the USA.


The diva shuns the camera.

"Joe you're embarassing everybody..."-me

"I'm embarassing myself..."-Joe


F**kin' liars.

Scratched onto the air dryer in a gas station bathroom:

That's false advertising. Bastards.

In the Navy...

God I love this gig... Playing for the Navy rules. Especially on the 4th of July. Especially in San Diego... Especially when in 75 degrees in San Diego... Gigs don't get much cooler than this.

Thank You San Diego! Good Night!

Lunch... Navy Style...

Even lunch is more fun on a Navy base... They shuttled us over to their "galley" on awesome golf carts... They had an actual, physical, food pyramid as you walk in filled with fake food to give one last effort to keep everyone from just going in a eating 13 hotdogs... My favorite, however, was the "conserve your tax dollars, only take what you can eat" sign that hung in the cafeteria. That's awesome... Actually... I guess if we want to we can just look at this entire weekend as the greatest tax refund ever...

Yay for technology!

It's comforting to know that if we are forced to crash-land somewhere,
we can check and see what the weather's like there.

The best request ever.

Found this onstage at the Jack Daniels Saloon. I thought all you Eric
Creapton fans would enjoy it.
