I've been neglecting this blog, but only because I've found myself busy with other good things. I have managed to post something-or-other on my tumblr every several days, keeping my toe in the door of the Internet. Y'know. In case it closes. And Facebook. I'm "Moribund Facekvetch" there. Shh. It's secret.
Here are some recent/upcoming events/performances that I'm involved in. (There are actually other people involved in these things. I'll add their names as I get organized. I appreciate performing with them/their organizational efforts.)
