Weirdsville Listening Party, Tuesday Oct 29 at 7pm: 'At Home with Denny'!

At 7:00pm, on Tuesday, October 29th: it's the long awaited "At Home with Denny" Weirdsville Records Listening Party! You may remember seeing this fabulous and rare record on Davey's YouTube commercial for the record shop (which is found inside Used-on-New Books & More at 36 New Street in Downtown Mount Clemens) and also on the episode of Under The Radar Michigan which featured Weirdsville Records, earlier this year... and if you don't, that's no problem! You can check out the hilarious YouTube spot here and Episode #314 of UTR Michigan here (Mount Clemens comes in at the 14:00min mark)! 
Also, even better than just listening to this finely-produced record... Dennis Gapczynski, local musician who recorded this gem on vinyl (many years ago when he lived in Macomb County) will be coming down from his Alpena home to jam with Davey at this party! 
Davey Taylor tells us why it's cool...

Halloween is Coming to Downtown Mount Clemens!

My Haunts in Downtown Mount Clemens... in 15 Seconds!

That's right.
I am going to start at the corner of Walnut & New Streets, head west, turn south down the Cherry Street mall, then east on Macomb Place, until I turn to go north up Walnut, and end up right back where I started... and I will name my favorite places along the perimeter of that block as I go.
In just fifteen seconds.
Ready? Set...
Here I go!

To My Friends & Loved Ones Who May Be Struggling...

Remember that nothing you do is unimportant. 

You may have periods of anger, doubt, fear, or weariness. Life may sometimes seem overwheming. That is part of what makes us human.

I know, in my own case, that sometimes the things that I may find overwhelming would be as gifts and treasures to those who have less than I.

If you find yourself in a period of darkness, remember that the seeds of great trees and beautiful flowers sprout in the blackness of the loving Earth, and struggle through toward the light of the Sun.

Remember who you are and why you do what you do. Think of all the lives and hearts you have touched in your generosity.

Do not despair when those sick with wickedness or selfishness appear to prevail. Their seeming rewards are not real. To be discouraged in the face of such things is the first step to becoming like those who have given in to illnesses of the spirit. Be yourself.

All these things are those things of which I must remind myself. I offer them freely to whomever may find them of use.
