Shaky Knees, IP Casino, and Welcome to Rockville Incubus road trip!

Roommate and I mapped and planned it all out to see Incubus all weekend May 3-5. Shaky Knees festival in ATL Friday night, Casino show Saturday in Biloxi, and finish out Sunday in Jacksonville, FL and I couldn’t be more excited! Saw them at BSMF last year and I swear I had a spiritual experience. Anybody else hitting any of these shows up?

Education

Mississippi's Constitution, which was drafted after a convention in 1868 by a biracial committee, provided free public education for all people between the ages of 5 and 21 years. The state had little tax money to fund the school system, however, due to a heavily agricultural economy. Many black communities matched money raised by Julius Rosenwald to build schools and develop the educational systems in their communities.
Public schools were heavily segregated until the late 1960's (despite the 1954 Brown v Board of Education ruling which declared "separate but equal" schools to be unconstitutional). While a small minority of white students were withdrawn from public schooling following integration, 91% of the state's students remain publicly educated.
Mississippi has the ignoble distinction of ranking last or near-last in many measures of educational achievement, including in spending per student (45th), math scores (50th), science scores (50th) and in ACT scores (50th); it ranks well-above average in SAT scores. However, only 3% of students take the SAT.

Sports in Mississippi

With no professional franchises in the state, Mississippi's sports scene is dominated by college and minor-league athletics. Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Mississippi State all have successful NCAA programs and have significant following throughout the state.
Several developmental baseball franchises, soccer and hockey teams call Mississippi home, including franchises for the Atlanta Braves and the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fun Facts*

  1. Washington Nationals relief pitcher Jonathan Papelbon pitched for Mississippi State University. This is widely regarded as the worst thing to come from Mississippi in the last 25 years.
  2. The Teddy bear can trace its origins to a hunting trip Teddy Roosevelt took to Mississippi in 1902, when he refused to shoot a bear that had been captured and tied to a tree.
  3. The international Checkers Hall of Fame is in Petal, Mississippi. If you are standing next to another patron at an exhibit, you may only move by attempting to jump over that person.
  4. The world's first lung and heart transplants were performed in Mississippi in 1963 and 1964, respectively.
  5. Free slaves from many states, including Mississippi, would go on to found the nation of Liberia, which became an independent nation in 1862.
  6. Jackson (along with Moscow, Helsinki and Varna) is one of only four cities of the world sanctioned by The International Theater-Dance Committee to host the International Ballet Competition.
  7. Coca Cola was first bottled in 1894 in Vicksburg (it was previously only available as a fountain drink). Barq's Root Beer was invented in the state four years later in 1898.
* Facts may not actually be entirely factual.

Review of Maynard's Music in Ocean Springs, Mississippi (near Biloxi)

Caveat: I am reposting this review I made nearly 5 months ago. I originally posted it around 2:30 in the morning, so not that many people got to see it. I am reposting in the hope that anyone making a trip to the casinos can see what there is around town.
Just got back from Biloxi, here's my impressions of Maynard's Music in nearby Ocean Springs
I figured while I was down in Biloxi I might as well try to find a record store, seeing as how I have none in my hometown. I wasn't holding out too much hope, but after posting threads here and in /biloxi I was tipped off about Maynard's Music. While not in the city of Biloxi, it was only a 10 minute drive from where I was staying at the Beau Rivage, and I figured a trip there one day would make a nice respite from the gambling, drinking, and rodeoing.
Size-wise, it is about the same as Wax n' Facts in Atlanta, but a lot more spacious (read: not as stocked). The man that owned it was busy adding new records to his inventory, and seemed helpful enough. I generally don't ask too many questions however, and seeing as how he looked busy I left him to his work. Everything was clearly labeled, piles of records weren't scattered haphazardly, and signs explained most of the basic questions you needed to know. I give the organization of the store an enthusiastic thumbs up. Some of the decorations did have that school-style bulletin board charm to them. In addition, when he noticed that I was pulling records out to inspect them, he stopped and told me where the listening station was. As he pointed it out, he also let me know that anything that was open already in the store could be listened to first. This includes CDs, tapes, vinyl, etc. Selection-wise, there was not a ton to dig through, but plenty enough to satisfy. More than I had expected to see originally to be honest. Most of the rock-pop section was filled with dad rock, 80's rock, and the like. Nothing that I haven't seen before digging through thrift stores and antique malls, but without all the Barry "The Man" Manilow and Rod "The Bod" Stewart getting in the way. Sadly, the soul/funk section was only one row, and there wasn't too much to get excited about in it. The rap section was about 8 records sitting in front of the soul. The Beatles section is unmistakable, as they have all been pulled out and sit in the prime-time spot of the store right when you walk in. There is no new additions sections which was a bummer, but he did tell me right as he was about to put some fresh soul albums out, and I did spy some Curtis Mayfield in there. No new records section, strictly used.
Price-wise, it was a bit more expensive than I might have liked, but then again this man has the only record store that I could find in the area. Prices are firm. Adding to that, it looked like what he was doing was reading the Goldmine record guide, and marking a lot of things as the VG+ price, regardless of condition. Pretty crappy at some points. Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, etc, prepare to pay at least $20, no matter what. I pulled a Zep II album out that was marked $20, and immediately noticed that it looked pretty scratched, the record has lost it's luster, it had a generic inner sleeve, and the outer sleeve had a few defects on it. A beat up copy of Sgt. Pepper's with split and cracked seams all around the cover was $20 as well. In addition, there is no such thing as cleaning the vinyl before putting them out, replacing torn/yellowing inner sleeves, and a few records I pulled were just sitting Goodwill style inside the jacket without an inner sleeve at all. The upside of this however, is that if you do find a record that is better than VG+, then you might be getting a deal on it. Like I said however, you will be paying VG+ prices for an album that could range from VG- to NM. There were a fair bit of items that were more reasonably priced, but I failed to notice any criteria that distinguished his $4 albums from his $17 ones. All country albums and 12" singles are $1, but I'm generally not too interested in those. For those who like CD's, all were $5 regardless.
Here's a list of what I bought while I was there:
I ended up spending right under $30 when you include tax.
Pictures I took for everyone while I was there:
Pros:
Cons:
Conclusions: If you are already going to be in the Biloxi/Ocean Springs area, it is worth a stop. Be prepared to thoroughly inspect the condition of your records. Staff was friendly, and helpful when asked about anything. Don't expect to find any killer deals, but it was a very nice break from everything else that I was down for. I couldn't recommend making a trip from more than 45 minutes or so away specifically to go to Maynard's, but if you are already going to be in the area there's no reason not to.
