Some Random Thoughts While I Have a Minute

August 9, 2007

The comedy show was a big success and a hell of a lot of fun. I didn’t advertise much this time, but I’m planning more in the fall and I’ll get the word out earlier and farther.

I’m still in the midst of one of the busier summers I’ve had in a while, so the posts will  continue to be sporadic for a while longer.

I’m heading out to Beautiful Ohio next week. (OSU grads stand and sing here). I haven’t been there in years. My parents usually travel here to see us (well, to see the Grandkid. I just happen to be here) so it’s time to go the other way.

I’m having one of those stretches of time where everything seems to break. It’s running the gamut from a leaky faucet I can’t seem to fix to the transmission in our mini-van that costs way more to fix than I care to mention.

I recently had a lovely evening in the back yard of a neighbor drinking and talking with many of the bloggers on my blogroll and some other great folks from the area. Thanks for the hospitality, Greg. And Ross, great to finally meet you. I’m taking you up on that Rotary lunch soon.

My latest musical obsession is King Crimson. Especially the 80’s and 90’s lineup of Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Bill Bruford and Tony Levin. This is Prog Rock Magic, folks, with a paranoid edge that makes David Byrne look downright well adjusted.

More later, perhaps from the wilds of the Lake Erie shore.


Bring On The Funny!!!

I am producing (with some local and not local friends of mine) a comedy contest here in good ole North Adams:


Go to for information on being in or seeing the show.

New Pages

July 18, 2006

787px-ubuxerox.jpgI’ve added two new pages to the site. The More Music page has information and links about artists that I enjoy and may be a bit out of the mainstream or lost to time.

The Comedy and Improv page gives a quick history of the origins of American Improv and links to books and sites that expand on the subject.nichols-may.jpg

I’ll be adding to both pages as the mood strikes. Feel free to comment on them in the blog section.
