Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?


So ... I'm heading to Kansas City today for my first time at a KC con. I think I am doing some panels, I don't know if I am getting a space to play or not.

CONvergence asked me for a short blurb, so I sent some stuff for them to choose from ...

Eric is a wise-acre (since I would assume that we can't use the word ass in the program) songwriter/singer from Iowa ... well ... he lives in Iowa but he's not really FROM there. He's fat, furry (but not A furry) and somewhere in his 40s. CONvergence is con #7 for him this year on his Slow Motion Midwestern Fanboy Tour (5 states in 6 months). He's been compared (much to his amazement and disbelief) to Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright (by the same person even, but not at the same time). He stays up too late playing music at cons, he has a story about every song, he is still a little amazed that fannish folk like his music, since it has little to do with fandom (even though a lot of the songs are about fannish folk). He has NOT been told that he is out of tune by Nate Bucklin, HAS been heckled by Lojo Russo and shamelessly forced Chaz Somdahl to play Gloria so he could perform his one and only filk song last year at Duckon. He has been played by Dr Demento (once), and even performed in his Festival Of Dementia (once). CONvergence will be his 2nd Minneapolis area con, but not his last unless they catch him at the border next time.

You can also get my wildy inaccurate bio at my website below. Feel free to steal wildly from it.
