the morning after…

07 Nov

Although he didn’t win down in Texas (though it was close; if actual human Ted Cruz is capable of sweating, I’m sure he did last night), Beto O’Rourke is “So Fucking Proud Of You Guys”; and, honestly, so am I (and I don’t have to worry about sending control rooms scrambling for the beep button […]

VOTE

06 Nov

Today’s election day in these United States; midterms are *always* a big deal, despite usually crappy turnout, but that’s not gonna happen this year, right? Because this election’s a BIG DEAL; like the Washington Post said this week, “This midterm election is like no other in a generation”: Tuesday’s midterm election is about many things. […]

perspective

29 Oct

posted this piece to social media earlier, but felt worth sharing here as well. This morning on my way in to work, we had a back-up of ten or twelve cars at the post entrance. Why? A family of deer decided that the road in front of the gate was their space for a while. […]

didn’t go as planned, but still wrapped up nicely in the end

29 Oct

On Friday, I posted a bit about weekend plans. Those didn’t go as expected. Friday evening was indeed kinda chill; I made some excellent refried beans in my instant pot. We ate them. It was good. Saturday, however, went a bit pear shaped; We tried to make the best of it, but nothing went as […]

Friday night, while returning home late from Amherst, where we saw an absolutely AMAZING performance by my kid and […]

all the bands

24 Sep

As I posted on social media last evening: So, that’s Ravencon 13.5 in the books. Having performed with Dimensional Riffs, Metricula and her Friends with Benefits (including the Misbehavin’ Maidens and Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit), sitting in with Dirty Metal Lefty (who’s awesome – check her out!), and even myself just a little bit, I guess […]

so a bunny walks into a taproom…

25 Aug

I somehow organized a minor “blow-off-steam” happy hour three weeks into a four week class last night by telling a few folks that I’d be at Independent Brewing Company’s taproom Friday afternoon to have a drink or two and dinner from whatever food truck was holding court. I ended up chatting with a couple of […]

…so of course I get sick

15 Aug

It’s relatively bog-standard Wednesday evening; a week-and-a-half into my class, and the teams is starting to figure out the basic pattern and rules of engagement, getting along well, doing good work, and developing, at least in our case, weird conspiracy theories about how our grades are determined, and wondering about the oddly ever-present recurring value […]
