Media Consumption in High Gear

Posted by

Between the snow, and the health issues, and just winter doldrums from hades, I have been doing a whole lot of consuming of media of late.

Report from Ice Station Kilo

Posted by

I couldn’t remember the NATO phonetic alphabet for ‘K’ and had to look it up. Sad. For the past several hours, in fact most of the day, I have kept myself sequestered in the upstairs office, with the curtains closed, distracting myself from what’s going down out there. I had a bit of a moment […]

Last weekend exceeded expectations; on Friday I met up with my potenetial (actual?) new bandmates from rock camp. I picked three up at the metro; for future reference, 3 folks + guitar + cello + driver is totally doable in the hatchback. The fourth joined us directly and we all played musical instruments… wait… I […]
