Saint Nick or Satanic?

January 5, 2011

I stumbled upon Jeff Milner’s Backward masking site and thought it a fun place to check out. New in HTML5!

I met some new friends the other day.

Note: This didn’t start to be a name dropping exercise. It just ended up that way so I could explain the convoluted path that my life has taken the last few days.

I met some new friends the other day. I went to W00tstock Boston with a video camera, and was invited to shoot some backstage footage as well as cover the event. 6 hours and 57 Gigs later, I’m coming out the other side of a fun time with some very gracious people, who I now know a little better. Hopefully they won’t file restraining orders the next time we meet.

I’ll post more on the backstage hi-jinx soon (I still have to do #NaNoWriMo as well) But here’s a taste of the last few days and two people I met that impressed me. They’re both twisty path stories about Marian Call and Marc Abrahams.

I hadn’t heard about Marian until a few months ago. (more…)

Quick - Everyone sing off key!

Caught the boys and their acapella show on Friday. Fun time.

Hadn’t seen George in 25 years, but did see Sam and Paul a few years ago at their Butties concert.  I’m hoping to shoot The Butties 2010 concert (27 years of continuous annual concerts!) in VT this July. More after the break. (more…)

You were in town and didn’t tell me? – A Letter to Dave Barry

Some people just never call...

Some people just never call...


You neglected to tell me you were in town last week with Steve Martin. Sad. I missed it.

Maybe you misplaced my e-mail. Even though you’ve never met me, I’m quite famous in my own mind.

Many people have it. In fact, I’ve heard some make a fortune sending it to Nigeria.

I guess I’ll have to remind you my blog is at as well.

I know, you’re busy with your pseudo retirement, but it’s nice to drop me a line once in a while. Just because I randomly connected with you after Googling ‘Talk like a Pirate Day’, when I was actually was looking for a pirate picture for the blog is no excuse for you to not communicate.

Just sayin’.

Best of luck with the new book.
