Friday, September 3rd, Cryan's

This is something I have been meaning to do for a while, but have never seemed to get around to.

Put a post about every show we play.

So, to start with we played at Cryan's in South Orange last night.

For those who don't know, this is one of our regular places that we play. We usually play there twice a month.

Was a pretty decent night, crowd wise, especially since we were up against 1) beautiful weather and 2) Labor Day weekend.

But--and if you've ever been to Cryan's you'll get this--there was actually two or three parking spaces in the parking lot, so it wasn't exactly a HUGE crowd.

But, that doesn't mean we didn't have a great time anyway.

A quick shout out to Vince, who was having his rehearsal dinner at Cryan's. We didn't have the honor of meeting Vince's betrothed, but we wish him all the best in getting married today!

Okay, Talk to you all next week! Promise!

Yesterday, we had band practice at Danny's house.

This may sound like no big deal to you, but it is when you consider we had all of ONE band practice in the last YEAR.

(Why? Because since we play every week, we are always up on our stuff.)

What's great about practices is that we ALWAYS walk away from them with at least 10 new songs.

And this time was no different.

We added, let's see...

"Calling All Angels" by Train, "Cherry Cherry" and "Crackling Rosie" by Niel Diamond, "Lonesome Day" by Bruce Springsteen, and "In A Little While" by Uncle Kracker, among others.

We also had a few that just didn't work... ("Sweet Caroline" which REALLY needs a keyboard... So please don't ask for it...)

In all, a good time, as we not only practiced, but played a few songs with Dan's four children as well, which was a lot of fun!

Oh, and I will also mention, Dan, GREAT pork roll sandwich!

Time Off!

Well folks, just a quick note for you all.

Overtime is on a well deserved and much needed break for the next two weekends.

We will return to the stage on March 12th at Cryan's in South Orange.

See you then!

Cancellation, a Thank You and a Prayer.

Tonight's Overtime gig at the Boavista Pub in Newark has been cancelled due to an illness in the family.

Hopefully, we'll book another date there sometime soon to make this up to you all.

Also, a BIG thanks go to Mark and especially T.J. Donohue from Giant Space Robots for helping oput last night!

T.J. filled in for Danny on drums last night and performed Yeoman's duty, playing all night long! His brother MArk hung out for a while and sang a couple of blistering versions of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" and the Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman".

Again, thanks to them both for helping out the band during a rough stretch.

Which brings me to this. Danny missed the two gigs this weekend because of a severe illness in his family. Please, if you are so inclined, send out a prayer or a good thought or some good mojo to him and his family in this dark hour for them.

Blair and Lee's thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Dan.

Much love & respect to you all.

Please get well.

Tonight On Drums...

Folks, due to an emergency in his family, Danny, our drummer, will not be able to play tonight's show at Cryan's.

However, filling in for him, from Giant Space Robots is Overtime's former drummer and out good friend T.J. Donohue!

Come on out and hear this old time Overtime reunion tonight!

All Things Potch

Started this as a conversation with one Rob Matsushita, over my jealousy that his last name is, like, EVERYWHERE in Japan.

So I did some looking into my own last name: Potcher.

The only place I've ever seen another Potcher is there was a kicker (KICKER!) on a Canadian football team named Potcher.

Not even fucking related to me.


SO I hit the internet.

Dictionary.com lists this: potcher

\Potch"er\, n. One who, or that which, potches.

Potcher engine (Paper Making), a machine in which washed rags are stirred in a bleaching solution.

Furthermore, "Potch" is listed as: potch

\Potch\, v. i. [Cf. Poach to stab.] To thrust; to push. [Obs.] ``I 'll potch at him some way.'' --Shak.

(See? I'm in mother effing SHAKESPEARE!!!!)

Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.

Also there was: potch

\Potch\, v. t. See Poach, to cook. [Obs.] --Wiseman.

Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.


On Google I found this.

You MUST see this shit.

Or THIS from Japan.

And little did you know it, but I am in a children's book!

And finally, there is Potch-Kun... A Lego creation. Potch-kun may be translated as "studs boy" which named after the Lego brick shaped hat he is wearing...


It's so sad...

I Forsee One HELL Of A Battle Of The Bands...

Some of you may or may not know that Stone Temple Pilots (STP) broke up in November.

The reason why is believed to be singer Scott Weiland's new side project, Velvet Revolver, a super group made up of Weiland, guitarist Slash (of Guns N' Roses fame), bassist Duff McKagan (Also of GNR) and drummer Matt Sorum (of The Cult and GNR for a time).

So this leaves the other three guys in STP out in the cold, al la Rage Against The Machine after Zach De La Rocha quite.

So what do they do? They call up Izzy Stradlin (formerly of GNR AS WELL) and singer Chris Robinson (formerly of the Black Crowes) and have put together their OWN super group.

Man, would I LOVE to see a double bill of these two acts, both of which will likely sell better than Guns N' Roses new album.



Me, I'm happy to have two news bands I'll almost DEFINITELY like coming out.

Potch out!

Peace in the Middle East

So here I have been thinking no one has been here for the last half year, as it shows that I have no comments on any of my posts.


Apparently, even though the thingy reads "Comments 0", there really ARE comments there anyways!

SO I just had a 6 month reading frenzy.

Sorry if I didn't respond to your comments.

Oh, and to that asshole from October 17th? Yer just a bitter frikkin BoSox fan, jerkboy.

I only watch the playoffs?

Dude, I LIVE for Yankee baseball. I am JONESING for Spring Training. I read all the hot stove stuff like a FIEND.

So, say it with me now... Nine-Teen-Eight-Teen!

Siddown and shuddup, junior.

(Hee Hee Hee!)

Oh, and BTW, your SS is gonna look AWFUL fetching playing 3B for the Yankees in 2005.

You heard it here FIRST.

Down For The Count

Well, had to go BACK to the doctor yesterday.

Still having trouble breathing.

Couldn't get from my ar to the doctor's office (maybe 200 feet...) without getting winded.

He says I have something similar to asthma, and Upper Respiratory Somethingorother...

So, I am to stay home form work today and tomorrow, and he told me to cancel tonight's New Year's Eve gig at Cryan's. He didn't even want me there to just play guitar.

"Bedrest!" He tells me.

That's all I've BEEN doing since Sunday.

God, I just want to get well...

To any and all fans of Overtime who might be reading this, sorry about tonight's show. Trust me, if there were any way I could do this, I would.

Have a happy, healthy and safe New Year, folks.
