2014 Rhumbline Striper Tourney pics and results From Matt Ayer

Hey Joey,

The 2014 Rhumbline Striper Tournament was completed yesterday and attached are some photos of the winners and Fred handing out prizes. It was a slow day of fishing with many of the “heavy hitters” being shutout and not even weighing in a fish, but everyone always has a blast at the Rhumbline and the food and festivities weren’t suppressed at all by a little rain. Of course Fred (as always) had a great bunch of raffle prizes and kept the crowd entertained.

Here are your winners:

1st Place – Herb White – 30.66 pounds

2nd Place – Roger Brisson – 22.90 pounds

3rd Place – Domenic SanFilippo – 14.72 pounds

Hope everyone comes out again next year!

Thanks,
Matt

We Released The Rare Yellow Lobster We Had At The Dock This Morning After It Had Released Its Eggs While In Our Tank.

We Released The Rare Yellow Lobster We Had At The Dock This Morning After It Had Released Its Eggs While In Our Tank.

About a month ago we released the blue one and the quadruple clawed one for the very same reason.  A good lesson for the kids to learn about sustainability in the lobster industry.  Hated to see that rare lobster leave the dock but at least my girls got to witness it.

HARVEY MAPCASE

Dot Kill Dot

Out 18th of August 2014

Salem band devotes new album to promoting wildlife rehabilitation center Cape Ann Wildlife. Half of all album sales will go to benefit the Gloucester non-profit.

Album launch-party to double as fundraiser.

Neil Carlill has made a lot of albums with a lot of different people over his twenty-year career, but for the British singer/songwriter/bird fanatic (now a resident of Salem, Mass.), this one is special, as it fulfills a longtime fancy, and serves a beloved cause. Dot Kill Dot is the debut album from Harvey Mapcase, the outfit Carlill formed with drummer Doug Allen in 2011, with former Thee Hydrogen Terrors guitarist Matt White completing the three-piece on bass in 2012. This is Carlill’s first time fronting a fixed ensemble in many years, and, after a decade of joint projects, it marks a return to solo songwriting. This is also the first of his records to be brought out 100% independently, under his King Harvey label. Such unprecedented autonomy led Carlill to muse about how he could meaningfully link the project to his passion for avian creatures, combining his twin obsessions in a way that could benefit the latter, while perhaps making the former a more rewarding endeavor. Meanwhile, even as the album was shaping up to be his most inspired yet, Neil found himself weighed down by concerns about his friend and go-to bird expert, Jodi Swenson. A licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Swenson founded and operates Cape Ann Wildlife (CAW), a rescue, rehab, and release facility in Gloucester, Mass, caring for sick and injured wild birds and small animals. An ailing sparrow Neil found in the road first brought him to CAW in 2009, where he was deeply impressed by Swenson’s dedication. Then, over the years, there was the fledgling chickadee by the rubbish bins, the baby starling in the attic, and countless more instances wherein Swenson’s compassion and expertise were invaluable. “I have the highest admiration for what Jodi does,” Neil says. When financial difficulties threatened to close the non-profit, Neil knew he wanted to do whatever he could to help Jodi.

“It was already turning out to the ‘birdiest’ album I ever wrote,” says Carlill (Songs bear titles like “Bali Starlings,” “Screech Owls,” and “Ravens Pick Locks”—rumor has it, they can.) “So tying it to Cape Ann Wildlife just seemed obvious.” The album has other themes: “aging, the accumulation of time’s ravages, the race against the inevitable fading of the senses. . . . I suppose you could see the birds in the lyrics as wistful representations of youth, vitality, freedom . . . but mostly they just represent birds. Birds are elemental.” Musically, the album is stirringly melodic in the best tradition of Elliott Smith, later Beatles, Big Star (etc.), and as lithe and inventive as an offspring of Beefheart’sTrout Mask Replica and Electric Warrior by T. Rex, that grew up listening to The Fall. Carlill’s most intricate guitar work to date and Allen’s versatile, ingenious drumming form the musical core. Neil and Doug’s arrangements are stripped down to the naked essentials, with White bestowing sweet vocal harmonies. Production on the record, by Berlin-based producer Jayrope, was kept deliberately raw and unobtrusive, leaving room for the trio’s kaleidoscopic cadences and ever-transforming rhythms. Tracks like the flamenco-hued “Hysteria,” and the arresting “It’s a Ritual,” which snakes fluently through the abrupt yet graceful hairpin turns that epitomize Carlill’s song structures, highlight the band’s intelligent interpretation of alternative pop/art-rock.

Carlill first earned esteem in the 1990s as leader of the U.K. band Delicatessen (Big Life/Starfish Records), whose esoteric, sultry, subterranean sound, as compelling as it was anomalous in that Britpop epoch, moved the Melody Maker to praise the Leicester foursome as “the salvation of pop music.” (Earlier this year, Taylor Parks, writing in thequietus.com, singled-out Delicatessen’s 1994 song “C.F. Kane” as a beacon of quality in the long dark night that was British pop in the 90’s. Seehttp://thequietus.com/articles/15092-blur-parklife-anniversary-review.) Later, Carlill swerved into top-40 territory with the London-based pop “supergroup” Lodger (Island Records) before relocating to America and teaming up with guitarist Warren Cuccurullo to form Chicanery for one eponymous album, which appeared in 2010. Other projects include the avant-garde, trans-Atlantic techno outfit Vedette (Stilll records) and atmospheric, post-punk oddity Me Me the Moth (Titicacaman records). In 2011, Carlill contributed to the Three on a Match project, a musical homage to the films of Bette Davis, along with his favorite fellow musician, the amazingly gifted King Toad(a.k.a. Jamal River, of Iowa City). Their plans for further collaboration came to a tragic end when River took his own life at age 35, in July 2013. It is impossible to overstate the influence King Toad’s work has had on Carlill’s own, and Dot Kill Dot is dedicated to River’s memory.

Though the album will be for sale in digital format from iTunes and Bandcamp, Neil hopes people will plump for the beautifully packaged CD, with its cover painting and stunning bird photographs created explicitly for the project by Portland, OR artists Junko Susuki and Shawn Martin, respectively. As for the title, Neil explains, “Dot Kill Dotis, in one sense, a reference to our modern culture of hostility, particularly the way the remote, anonymous nature of internet communication brings out the brutality in people.” But it’s also a bird thing: “I was on a pre-dawn drive and I could hear this birdcall, loud and clear like a whippoorwill’s, but it sounded like ‘dut-keeeel-dut /dut-keeeel-dut.’ This was after I had written the title track for the album. I thought, perfect.”

HARVEY MAPCASE (with Reindeer, Olneyville Sound System and This Day in History), play at the Church of Boston on August 28 to launch the new album, Dot Kill Dot, and raise funds for CAW. For more information, visit CAWinc.org and harveymapcase.com.

Tina Fey Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

July 24, 2014

Confidence is 10% hard work and 90% delusion.

Elizabeth Stamatina “Tina” Fey, (1970-    )

image

A Pennsylvania native, Tina Fey was interested in comedy from an early age and got her foot in the door with The Second City improv group, moving to Saturday Night Live as a writer in 1992. She later became an on-screen performer and ultimately head writer for the series. She is probably best known for her spot-on impersonation of vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, and her long tenure as co-anchor of the Weekend Update segment, first with Jimmy Fallon and later with Amy Poehler. She left SNL in 2006 to develop the sitcom 30 Rock and has appeared in more than a dozen movies. She is one of the most highly paid actresses working today and is often listed as one of the most influential women in show business. Fey is a multiple winner of the Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards. In 2010 she was honored with the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the youngest recipient to date.

Chief Len Campanello Joins Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association in Support of House Version of Gun Bill

Police Chief Leonard Campanello, with the steadfast support of Gloucester Mayor Carolyn Kirk, joins the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association in support of the House of Representatives version of the pending gun legislation.

As an active member of the Chiefs Association, Chief Campanello is following this important bill closely. He is disappointed to learn that the Senate Bill, S#2284 lacks a critical public safety provision found in the House Bill, H#4278. That provision gives police chiefs discretion in issuing rifle and shotgun licenses. Currently, Massachusetts law allows police chiefs absolute discretion in issuing handgun licenses, but no discretion in issuing rifle and shotgun licenses. The House bill would close that dangerous loop hole.

When polled in June by the Princeton Research Associates, the majority of Massachusetts voters were also in favor of police chiefs having discretion in licensing for rifles and shotguns. 

Statement of Chief Campanello:

“The House bill is far superior to the senate version of the bill because it recognizes the importance of police chief discretion in issuing rifle and shotgun licenses. Police chiefs are generally in the best position to know who in their community is a threat to themselves, their partners, families and public safety.

“As the law stands, I may know that my officers have been called to a house 15 times to respond to a dangerously mentally ill person or domestic dispute where no charges were filed, but still have to give this person a rifle or shotgun when they apply for one. It does not make sense. This is why I support police chief discretion, it’s just commonsense in order to keep our community safe.

“Gloucester is fortunate to have a senator on the conference committee for the two guns bills, I just hope our Senator Bruce Tarr will take this opportunity to protect his community rather than cater to National groups like the NRA.

“Mayor Kirk and I stand together in supporting the House version of this bill, and we urge others to do the same.”

Hi Joey,

Ken Riehl suggested I contact you regarding our upcoming bike ride to benefit Neurofibromatosis Northeast.  Coast to the Cure NF takes place on Saturday, September 6th.  The event features both an On Road and Mountain Bike Challenge.  The On Road course consists of three routes (24, 66 and 100) and begins and ends at Stage Fort Park.  Participants from both rides gather at Stage Fort Park for a post ride barbeque.  I’ve attached a press release on the event specifics.  This is the second year the event has emanated from Gloucester.  Up until now our riders consist of NF friends and families.  Ideally we would like to attract more of a Gloucester following.  I was hoping you provide assistance with spreading the word.

I’m grateful for any support you can provide.

Thanks so much,

Sonja

The 4th Annual Coast to the Cure, a bike ride featuring both On-Road and Mountain Bike Courses to benefit Neurofibromatosis Northeast, will take place on Saturday, September 6.  The Road Course begins and ends at Stage Fort Park in Gloucester and offers three routes of varying lengths:  24, 64 and 100 miles.  The route winds through the picturesque North Shore, home to beautiful ocean views and quaint small towns. The Mountain Bike Ride takes place at the Beverly Commons/Greenwood Forest in Beverly Farms (adjacent to Glen Urquhart School) with a course designed to meet requirements of all levels.  Advanced riders will find high speed descent and technical climbs, while intermediate and beginner bikers will have alternative lines through a wooded 6 mile loop.  At the rides conclusion, all participants enjoy a celebratory cookout at Stage Fort Park. 

Neurofibromatosis (NF) is a genetic disorder of the nervous system that causes tumors to grow on the nerves anywhere in or on the body at any time and affects three times as many people than muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis combined.  Proceeds from Coast to the Cure will go towards neurofibromatosis research. 

Please call the Neurofibromatosis Northeast Office for more information (781) 272-9936 or visit the Neurofibromatosis Northeast website http://www.nfincne.org.

Hi Joey!  Please help us spread the word about this Cruise. 

The Suicide rate among veterans and active duty is double and even triple the rates of civilians at a rate of almost 1 per hour, every day!  

22+ Veterans and 1 Active duty Soldier takes their own life each day. 

In 2012 more soldiers died by their own hand, than in combat.  Suicide was the #1 cause of death within our military that year.

It takes all of us to prevent suicide!  So please, step up and act.  Reach out to a friend, family member, veteran in need.
