Cool!
We'll play. At least we will if I get a flask of rum, a flashlight and a map. Oh, and maybe a little holy water too.
Shelle, will you play it with me?
I will if Brettttt will.
Right now it's a two player game!!!! But seems like a spectator sport, especially if everyone is qualified to make literary, horror, or Parisian references.

Links aren't working for me, and that makes me sad.
 
 
 

We're playing in Wallingford (3 minutes from Media) at 8:00 next Saturday night. 


Last show sold out, so tickets in advance are recommended.

Crap. Play in Wallingford again on a night we don't already have a family birthday party scheduled. I know, the world does not revolve around me. If it did I would probably get dizzy watching it anyway. Break a leg!
Another time, Highlander... #kilt

Taught my first aquatics class at the Rocky Run YMCA.  8:00 Wed nights, if you are interested in attending.  It's action-movie themed, so we'll be preparing to act in jungle adventure, Rocky XII, James Bond, Splash 2, musicals, and the obligitory kiddie roles.


"OK, everybody grab the enemy frogman by the head & kick around in a circle to break the neck"


That's frogman with a speargun, of course.

Funeral? Oh no!
I am sorry to hear about your funeral, but CONGRATULATIONS on your show, and go get 'em, tiger!
Funeral duties? Who died?
Jen's cousin died recently, and we are attending the memorial.

I'm sorry to hear that. Please give her my condolences.
 
 

I've been a huge fan since I discovered his work in 1988. What has impressed me so much, recently, is the way little bits from his earlier work (phrases, ideas, images) keep popping up. As if the first time I saw them he was just planting them, and now they're mature. And as much as his work changes every decade or so, it still seems like a sharper and sharper iteration of his first stuff.


I'm imagining a writer who keeps going back in time, killing himself, and releasing better and better versions of his first novel.


Anyone is welcome to use that idea, if they want to make fiction based on it. No one is allowed to actually do it, please.

I just ordered his newest book. Can't wait to get it (on paper, cyberpunk dreams notwithstanding).
