We were sworn to actual secrecy and threatened with being beaten by oranges should we disclose details, but I figure a little blog post and a simple blurred photo of a stage with limited information should be safe.

I am looking forward to the album, then everyone can enjoy this show.

The Last Unicorn

I had never actually read The Last Unicorn or watched the film prior to last week and that is actually a bit weird given my tastes.

Peter S. Beagle himself was touring the film and signing books so we took the opportunity to attend and see the film on the big screen.  I purchased a copy of Tamsin and got it signed. 

This was a wonderful event.

Old Advice

I advise boys three things.

1) Learn to cook.

2) Learn to dance.

3) Own a suit.

And so, a new suit.

The Art of Asking Book Tour


I scored a goal on MP in high school, my only varsity goal.

I dated a girl from MP in high school.

My friend had a son attend there.

I have actually worked there several days as a sub years ago.

And although I have no real other connection, it just made things that much more real.

Cats At Parties

Mushkin made her internet debut at about four seconds into the video. 

Oliver chose not to participate.

Click below to link to the video on the tube of you.

Woke up to a Dexter like crime scene

It was Halloween morning. There was blood in the hallway. There was a lot of blood in the hallway. 

There were boxes in the hallway with enough blood on them to completely cover one of them.  There was blood on the walls where claws had scraped.  There was a trail of blood.  There were drops of blood on shoes and books and items.

The black cat was down the hall, calmly grooming.

The tiny little grey cat was missing.

The blood led into the kitchen.

For several seconds I was afraid of what I might find.

Toenail break.  Cut ear from scratching.  A blood soaked paw and head.  A first bath.  One angry little cat. One offended cat.

With the resounding Dos a Cero victory Seattle took its first Supporters Shield.

Drew Carey called me a Hippy.

They finally fixed the D2 era banners to reflect all four championships.

Finding October

Preliminary poster

Getting my costume ready
I had the opportunity to work on a film as an actor lately in late October.  The film is titled Finding October and should be out early-ish next year.  My part consisted of a day filming in Eastern Washington.  I am holding off posting any of the handful of during production photos I took or commenting further until the filmmakers do.
