Thread Lake gets a mention on the Johnny Panther Quests blog.

It maybe homesickness that led Jacquelyn’s Space to post about Semi-Pro and Flint:

Sad – But Spring isn’t here until you can smell the worms.
Meanwhile Gary Graff is reporting there’s a Michigan flavor at the annual South By Southwest Music + Media Conference out in Austin, Texas. He includes Chidos in that Michigan lineup at SXSW.
