Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?


What a weekend. I ended up running sound most of the day Saturday. A bit crazy, but a lot of fun. All of the music was amazing. We had a great show with the best response from the audience we have ever had.

We played ...

Widows Garden
Narrow Way
The Witch In Your Story
Stream of Consciousness
Calvin’s Girl
Village By The Sea
Masters of Library Science

I ran front of house sound for Toyboat. I had asked gundo about it a couple months ago. Mostly I wanted to be busy when they were playing. It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be.

I ended up singing a lot this weekend, 3 whole songs. Saturday night I did Roman Wall Blues at the request of Jason. Later I did Banned From Argo (Toyboat style) since someone wanted a Star Trek song, and no one else could come up with one.

Lizzie and I were judges for the Tin Filker Contest. 5 songs, all of them very, very good. Before Lizzie and I hit the road Sue requested How Can I Miss You, a song I had not played in a couple of years. Looking back at set lists on LJ, maybe 2010. I stumbled through it and it was kinda fun. At the same time, it doesn't really interest me. Maybe I will go back to those songs someday, but not now.

We got home about 10. Curled up in bed around 11. The cats were upset, both because we were gone and because our landlord, who they do not like, was in to do some work.

We have a weekend off, then two local shows the weekend of the 18th, then off to OVFF the following weekend. Windycon a couple of weekends after that. Then we have a break till after the first of the year. It will be time to get a little relaxation.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.
