Today we are tracking demos for Those Mockingbirds, but I was still able to make my calls. As luck would have it, TWO band members were up on the call list. THE CALLS 1. Elizabeth Czyzewski Left Voicemail 2. Tory Daines The Last Time We Spoke: I play in a band called Those Mockingbirds with Tory, and live with her. I see her far more than any two people probably should. When I Called Today: A:...

Anyway,...
3/27/2012 - Day 28
I’m typing up todays calls from a laundromat in Little Falls, NJ. I felt like I needed to come to a place with no internet to distract me from really focusing on what each of these unique calls were about because each one was a totally different dynamic from each other. That, and my clothes were absolutely filthy. THE CALLS 1. Nina Saporta The Last Time We Spoke: Nina and I used to...
3/24 - 3/26/2012 - Days 25, 26 & 27
I am fighting INTENSE tooth pain as I type this. I have nothing witty to say for the description. <3 u guys. Todays calls are all gems in their own way. THE CALLS 1. Amanda Cobell The Last Time We Spoke: Over a year ago, outside of Maxwell’s in Hoboken, Amanda passed me while I was smoking a cigarette outside and stopped to talk for a few minutes and introduce me to her...

That little girl sums up exactly how I feel right now… and on a Friday no less! Ugh. THE CALLS 1. James Cho Left Voicemail 2. Zac Clark The Last Time We Spoke: Other than interacting on the Tiny Giant forum, I last spoke to Zac in February, at a Tiny Giant showcase featuring Those Mockingbirds, Brick + Mortar, The Everymen and the Nico Blues.

3/22/2012 - Day 23
I must tell you that I am completely shocked that I was able to pull myself away from Angry Birds Space for enough time to make these calls and write the blog. Back to space I go! Enjoy… THE CALLS 1. RJ Challice The Last Time We Spoke: At my Mom’s birthday party in February. When I Called Today: RJ answered the phone “Hello Reginald” to which I replied? “What?!...
3/21/2012 - Day 22
Got back into the swing of writing. I think today has a really great variety of topics and people in it. Have at it. THE CALLS 1. Joelle Caputa The Last Time We Spoke: Joelle and I have been partners in crime for about 7 or 8 years now. We met when her magazine Planet Verge, started covering my band at the time, Perfuma.

SXSW EDITION! 3/14-3/19/2012 - Days 15-20
I am home from SXSW, and after a week of absolutely no internet connection, I can finally make a post again. I did make at least 2 calls a day, as per my own rules with this blog, but as luck would have it (referring to my having to transcribe them later) many were voicemails and todays post isn’t as overwhelmingly large as I feared it would be. Saturday, we left Austin, Texas at 8pm, and...
3/13/2012 - Day 14
I’m leaving for SXSW tonite, and will be making my calls as I go, however, my posting will rely on internet connectivity. So there is a chance that I will be making posts that cover numerous days at a time. Who knows? It’s a wild world we live in… THE CALLS 1. Amanda H. The Last Time We Spoke: I don’t really remember, but its been months. We’ve always been...
3/9/2012 - Day 10
Welcome to the last day of the first week of March. I finished calling the Bird clan today and got a cool offer for Those Mockingbirds that wouldnt have happened without this blog. Enjoy your weekend, and see ya Monday! WIthout further adieu… THE CALLS 1. Rusty Bird The Last Time We Spoke: The nite of the NFC Championship game this past football season. I was picking up my Dad from...

Quick note about the picture above before starting today… Those Mockingbirds made the front page of the national site for The Deli today! (also NYC, but national is linked above, click the pic, same article for both). Really exciting. Woo! I received alot of messages about my post yesterday with my parents. If you havent seen it, check it out HERE. Many people told me that my writing...
3/7/2012 - Day 8
For two reasons, I only made two calls today. First is that I’ve been feeling that its difficult to really pull together a great write up of some of these calls if I’m rushing to get too many done in a day, so I dont think i’ll be doing many more entries that have tons of calls. Secondly, today I reached “Bird” in my phone book, and my parents are the first two...

Kicking today’s post off with an awkward situation that I didnt forsee. Go me. Dont have a whole ton to say, so I will let the entries speak for themselves. THE CALLS 1. Rob Bass The Last Time We Spoke: Rob auditioned for Those Mockingbirds a little over a year ago. He wasn’t right for the spot, and we haven’t spoken since. When I Called Today: This was the most awkward phone...
3/3, 3/4 & 3/5, 2012 - Days 4, 5 & 6
Monday MEGA-POST! So, I made calls this weekend but didn’t post the blog because I feel like most blogs don’t post on the weekends. Am I right about that? I’m thinking this is how I’ll be doing it from now on, though having serious OCD, I can’t decide if I’m breaking my own rules or not. If I am, someone call me out on it and I’ll do right by you! I will...
March 1, 2012 - Day 2
Before getting started on today’s calls, I want to bring attention to the image above. If you recall from yesterdays entry, I called Mustafah but his number was disconnected and I had noted that he may have moved to Germany. Today, I signed into Facebook to see he that a friend had told him about the blog and that I tried reaching him. Pretty freakin wild huh? anyway… THE...
