Getting his kicks by playing licks What’s wrong with this teen-ager, anyway? After all, while other boys are hanging out with friends, camping, fishing, or playing video games to pass the summer, one Beaver Dam boy is practicing, practicing and practicing. Sometimes he practices u| to six hours a day. But there is a good reason for his dedication to music. Elwood Lee, 16, will compete in the Hodag Country Music Pick-Off this weekend thanks to winning the Southeastern Regional Hodag Country Music Pick-off last spring. The Hodag festival is a popular country-oriented festival held annually in Rhinelander. Lee sings and plays guitar, fiddle and mandolin with his band, which also includes guitarist-singer Steve Doiel and keyboardist Duane Millard, both of Janesville; bassist-harmonica player Steve Baker, of Sun Prairie; and drummer John Yonkee, of Poynette Lee started playing guitar and harmonica when he was 7. He learned guitar from his grandfather, Elwood Ijee Sr., who started performing with his band — The Pine Tree Ramblers — in Maine. He learned harmonica from his late grandmother, Elaine. He learned to play the violin in school. Got a milk mustache? Have you always dreamed of seeing your face in magazines on billboards alongside models, actors and athletes who sport milk mustaches?

The Secret Society of Happy People (Ha! Guess they’re not so secret now!) has declared Aug. 8 as National Admit You’re Happy Day. The society also is releasing its list of the IOO Happiest Events, Inventions, and Social Changes of the Century. But we can’t believe some of the things they consider “happiness” inducing: paved roads, indoor malls, pagers and acrylic nails. Who chose those — the mall singer formerly known as Tiffany? Others make more sense to us: White-Out, Dilbert, remote controls, pizza delivery and Girl Scout cookies. People can vote on the top IO at the society’s World Wide Web site, The Secret Society of Happy People was formed to encourage the acceptance of the expression of happiness. One of their actions included challenging Ann Landers for discouraging people from writing happy holiday newsletters to enclose with their holiday cards. Everyone has to have a campaign, we guess. Really cool stuff, from Ticketmaster OPENING ACT by NATASHA KASSULKE Koko Taylor is a recent addition to the ever-improving lineup at the Madison Blues Festival. mall mall Girl Scout cookies: Now that’s true happiness. Be afraid. Ticketmaster has released its official collector’s handbook — the 1999 Guide to Summer Tbur Merchandise. No, you won’t find a program from the Dylan and Simon tour. No, there are no Ibm Petty guitar picks. You won’t even find a pair of Lauryn Hill cat glasses. What this catalog does contain is a Summer Pen Pal Set diary and pen collection so that you can record every ’N Sync moment and capture your dreams about marrying Justin. (Woo-hoo!) And, it’s a steal at $19.95. How about a Backstreet Boys tin tote, complete with glitter makeup, nail polish and lipstick for $21.95? Sorry, there is no room for food in this lunch box. Theres also a lot of Britney Spears stuff, as if you hadn’t guessed. Our favorite, though, is the Austin Powers 1960s bachelor pad British Hag blow-up chair. Now you have a place to set your bum down and behave. The chair is swinging and costs just $39.95.
