It's on the ground, and working.
Bloof is on top of their game, and still visiting for a reading in April. Look like a change of venue though, mostly because they're so hot, we'll need everything we can find on tap to keep ourselves cool.
Writing on a clean desk is the way to be. I highly recommend.
Do you need a drummer in LA? He's over here. I got a call last night from him and my kid sis. Now she knows a whole bunch of silly things I did in high school.
Meanwhile, I switched up the Artists and Writers on the side bars here on the blog. I figured, most of you getting here are getting here by way of writing, and probably know a decent amount of the writers I'm linking to anyway. So, in the interest of helping you get to know people who work in different media (paint, beats, ink-in-skin, etc), those folks are now a little higher on the list. But I love them all equally.
I"ll see you Thursday at the Fixx:

Oh, and pop's pretty excited about an MG in a new movie. It looks kinda cool though. The car. Not necessarily the movie (but I haven't watched the trailer yet).
