As you sponsors have already heard, we will begin recording in July. At this point, looks like we’ll start a little further down the page, the week of the 21st. We’ll be working at Joe V. McMahan’s recently rebuilt Wow & Flutter; more details to be disclosed soon.
Yes, the sponsorship campaign is still going. Quite honestly, the project can put any and all dollars to good use, so if you haven’t joined us yet, take a look:
I’ve been catching up on HBO’s TrueBlood over the last several days, since Amazon recently included the first 3 seasons for gratis as part of their Prime program. (Alas, we are TV minimalists here at the estate.) I’ve been a fan, if for no other reason than its being set in the exact part of that Land of Strange(Louisiana) where I grew up. I’m almost done with Season 2 and I can safely say that I am weary of orgy scenes at this point, though I am reminded of a party or two I survived a few years back.
With warmer weather comes the return of the athletic amateurs; yes, I’ve started running again. Yes, I’m the idiot out there holding his phone(life) in his hand, cuz he hasn’t bought one of those armband things, and it’s too heavy to stow in a pocket. Who looks like he’s running away from something slightly faster than he is heading towards something else ahead. Ha. Just losing a little of the winter insulation, and otherwise keep things in motion, physical and otherwise. So far, so good.
Happy Summer–hope to see you up the road.
