Jim’s Big Ego

Over a decade ago, I was nosing around on MP3.com and discovered a pretty cool pop band out of Boston, Massachusetts fronted by a bald guy. I listened to their music quite regularly for a while, and then just got distracted by other things in that way you’re prone to do on the Internet. And, at some point I realized I had forgotten the band’s name, so I had no way of ever tracking down that great music.

Well, last night I performed at a show and at one point, the singer of one of the bands on the bill said they were about to do a cover of a song by a group called “Jim’s Big Ego.” Like a flash, it hit me — that was the name of the band that I’d forgotten.

What did I do? Only the obvious thing. I got up and started screaming “You’re going to play a song by Jim’s Big Ego? Those guys are the shiznit, playa! You must have mad skillz if you’re going to play Jim’s Big Ego.” This went on for some time until I was kicked out of the club.

Anyway, I just went online and dug up their website. I plan on nosing around to see if I can track down some of their older tunes.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Jim’s Big Ego but I like that name.

    I bet watching you get thrown out of a club would be very entertaining. I know from my time in New York that getting thrown out of a club can be very entertaining in itself.

    I just checked Jim’s Big Ego web site. Funny, but a little “clever” for my tastes. But not “cute”, at least. And considering that they are from Boston, “not cute” is a genuine relief.

    Yeah, he seems a little weirdly egotistical on the website. Wish I could remember the specific songs I liked.

    That’s okay, I forgot about the whole thing.

    I’m going to call in sick to work tonight cause I’m just pissed in general. I sure hope that my Boss doesn’t read your blog.

    I’m taking a break from writing for a while and it’s weird because my brain won’t stop thinking about writing. I would go into deeper into it here but then I would be writing, wouldn’t I? I had a whole routine about my Boss reading your blog and busting me but I don’t want to get all wrapped up in it. Although I did a thirty page outline that’s pretty good.

    I believe your boss is one of the four people in America who does not actively read my blog.
