Re: “Seizure Man specializes in cassettes

Katrina, we're very aware of what an epileptic seizure is. The word itself can also be applied to other things, such as the seizure of items. Regardless, it commemorates when we witnessed a man (whose name we never got) experiencing a seizure in front of our house. He fell backwards and hit his head very hard on the pavement, which led to blood pouring out of his ears. It was a very intense experience that occurred whilst we were taking a break from playing music. I assure you, we didn't point and laugh when it happened. We were the first to call paramedics to the scene, helping to save his life. The name is not intended to make people laugh or exploit anyone who may experience seizures. It's also not a direct reference to the Cyanide and Happiness comic.

Hopefully this answers your questions.

Re: “Seizure Man specializes in cassettes

Did you ask why they chose the name "Seizure Man" for the label? I'd really like to know.

What are they trying to insinuate with this as the name of a music label? Do either Jacob or Molly understand what a seizure really is?

As a proud Pittsburgher, who has epilepsy, I hope this name isn't meant to be cynical or judgmental...

Re: “Saying goodbye to the Boss Man of Pittsburgh rock radio

Porkified. Yes, Porkified. What does it mean? It goes beyond being a “cool one,” and spending decades listening to and following the Pied Piper of Pittsburgh. It’s about knowing, understanding, and admiring the man. The man, who decade after decade, genuinely and consistently displayed his kind and caring way, whether it was to help struggling artists who were turned away by the “mainstream” or having a life-long positive impact on tens of thousands of teenagers. Porkified is forever. We love you, Porky Chedwick. May God bless you and keep you.

Re: “Longtime local music blogger Hugh Twyman presents new concert series at Eide's

This man is an asset to Pittsburgh, he goes to nearly every concert, captures it, is a heck of an illustrator. My girlfriend and I make a game out of Hugh-spottings, yelling "I SEE HUGH!"

Great guy... and this music series is an apt way of celebrating TEN YEARS of service to the local music scene.

Interesting fact: he has an endless collection of hand-written lyrics by a plethura of bands.

Re: “The Mixus Brothers make pretty music, even if they're not family

This is a talented duo. Proud owner of the debut and having heard To The Far Blue Mountains can safely say they've outdone themselves. This is an album that should be a mainstay on WYEP. Really great stuff worthy of bigger things.

Re: “James A. Richards' new book teaches bands how to self-promote

This article brings up some great points when it comes to musicians looking to get their music heard. In the past, and still today it's record labels that do the marketing. However, when it comes to unsigned Artists they are left with that job.. unless they find the right people to help them. Musicians often need to do much more than just write good music, record, and perform live.
