Hey hey, what's today? (Nothing. Just rubbing in that it doesn't matter now that I no longer work 9-5)




Eric on drums with The Shannon Penn Band at Grape Street Pub last night.

Man, what an amazing show. Great songs, great musicianship -- I'm afraid I'm going to have to insist you all join me on February 24 when the band plays World Cafe Live, okay?

Okay.

Here's the link for tickets.

I'm still in heavy writing mode, but my friend Leslie Van Newkirk just turned me on to this site, Most Annoying Things of 2005, which is absolutely hilarious. And sadly, quite true.

And not to be obnoxious, but I have to bring up this up yet again. I can't believe no one has written to me about the extra Neil Gaiman ticket for this coming Monday's event in NYC. Do I have to throw in dinner at Felidia or something? (Love, love, love that restaurant. If you haven't been there, oh my God, you do not know what you are missing.)

Err...and also once more, hey, I'm doing pretty well in that Phaze favorite author poll, so if you haven't voted, here's the link one final time. Hey, I may not win but at least it looks like I'm not going to finish in last place for a change.

Oh, in case anyone is wondering, I am loving writing my novel in longhand with my fountain pen and I have a new Moleskine journal...man, how come no one told me about those when I was on my journal search? Ah. Between the pen and the Moleskine, I just feel so warm and fuzzy and...writerly.

Okey doke, I'm back to work. I'm finally up to the part in my novel I've been dying to write for, oh, twenty odd years...the week "my character" spends in New York at the Plaza Hotel holed up in bed with a famous British rock guitarist. I mean, not that it's true or anything...(insert smiley face/emoticon here)

Later...

Hey there!

Did I tell you that I'm writing a piece called "The Porpentine" based on Neil Gaiman's "A Game of You?"

Now I did! ^^

ERIC SLICK ROCKS!

Chris Opperman! No you did not tell me but holy cow, this world just keeps getting smaller, weirder, etc. etc. just like a Gaiman or Opperman project! It figures you're a Gaiman fan, too. Hey, did Eric Slick, who I know rocks, tell you he's playing at NAMM on the John Lennon bus and doing a gig either for or with Brian May of Queen fame? And...playing two songs with Mike Keneally? So hopefully you have Eric's cell phone number and I'll get him to email you with his hotel info. He'll be in LA doing a show at the Knitting Factory and then on to Anaheim for NAMM January 18-22.

I cannot wait for a Chris O/Andre C/Eric Slick tour this spring!
