friday random elevenish – “progress? maybe!” edition

07 Jun

The week, thankfully, is winding down. It’s been a reasonably busy one, except when it hasn’t been. Feast for famine for activity. Work either has me on the phone all day, putting out fires, or it’s sitting around waiting for something, anything, to happen. I have, at this point, managed to knock out seventy bike/hike […]

disconnected

03 Jun

Spent pretty much all of Monday waiting around for the office network to come to some sort of decision regarding whether or not it was going to function, and allow users to accomplish anything at all beyond watching spinning “wait” icons for pretty much every tool we use. The modern office, as you might imagine, […]

friday random elevenish – “one-two punch” edition

31 May

I’m still kind of coming off of the generally pretty great rock star/Guest of Honor experience at Balticon 53 last weekend, where The Humdingers played some great shows, I had some pretty decent meals, got sorta drunk with Nebula and Campbell award winning author and scientist Greg Benford, and got to hang with some friends […]

social justice bard

30 May

So, along with the other stuff I’m doing these days, I finally got myself a proper bio on the Social Justice Bards web site, since I’ve been part of that crew for a while now (even if I don’t stream…yet). I’m in good company, what with Metricula, David Tyberg, Cacophonie, Rhiannon’s Lark, Wanda Hayward, and […]

greetings atomacon

28 May

Well, after a little bit of back-and-forth, I can announce that I’ve been invited to be “Filk Special Guest” at Atomacon in North Charleston, South Carolina for 2019. This’ll be happening November 22 through 24 at the Hilton Garden Inn. I’m just as surprised as you. Oh well, I guess, after half a decade backing […]

friday random elevenish – “on the road” edition

24 May

By the time you’re reading this, it’s quite likely I’ll be somewhere on the American Interstate Highway System in the general mid-Atlantic region (not that I’m not on stretches of that every day or anything), traveling to Baltimore to play shows and geek out with The Blibbering Humdingers, who are Guests of Honor at Balticon, […]

friday random elevenish – “off my game” edition

17 May

Friday. About time. I was kind of off my schedule this week, between weather, appointments, rehearsals, hauling ass out to Amherst, etc. As I type this, I’d only gotten out on the trail once, and that was just a brisk three mile hike. Oh well; there’s always Friday afternoon. We shall see. I did have […]

pika, stress, etc

13 May

First, the good: We had a wonderful time with Detective Pikachu, which was actually quite a lot of fun; in great part due to Ryan Reynolds’ performance as the title character. The story was cute, though the resolution wasn’t exactly not obvious from the get-go. Still quite enjoyable, however, and gorgeous to look at. The […]

monday’s weekend recap

06 May

Happy Monday. It’s humid today, but not too hot, so I’ll take it. I walked three miles along the river after work, which felt good, except for the mosquitos. I’ve got the bike racked for tomorrow and the rest of the week. Gotta get back into the swing after being down last week. Also, I […]

afk, or something

31 Mar

The six of you who look at this space regularly probably missed out on the usual random playlist on Friday, or much of anything lately. Occasionally I step away, sometimes on purpose, sometimes because the office got busy, and decided to block some php code that lets me update things around here from within that […]
