So because i'm an idiot i haven't been able to get into my journal to post anything for a couple weeks. it's a long story. you don't want to hear it. As a result, National Poetry Slam has come and gone and i would have loved to have given you a blow by blow on it; but now it feels like stale news, so i'll leave that alone.

Meanwhile, wish Ray Medina a happy birthday if you see him. He threw us an amazing birthday party on Saturday night; complete with the underwater theme and everything. On Sunday, i went to the CD release party of Heather Blakeslee's new CD Treon's Cut Rate. For thos of you who don't know, Heather is a former employee of Poets and Writers and a friend of the LouderARTS Series since the beginning. She played in our first ever open-mic and in at least one of our anniversary shows after that. She has also featured her singer/songwriter skills for us. This is her second album and it's a good one. Her guitar skills are really really improved from the first one and finally approaching her remarkable songwriting ability. Last night was the first time she'd been on stage in about a year and a half so she was a bit tentative at first, but the work was strong and i was glad to have gone and hung out and drank beer with them afterwards (like i needed anything like an intoxicant after having been at ray's party the night before).

So i'm sorry. I'm back. I will continue to post. i will not fail you.

I'm writing a lot of stuff for the work i do with VisionIntoArt and i'm reading some interesting stuff that i'll have to tell you all about within the next few days.

one love
