A modest contribution over at BoFN, just because Fannie’s doing the heavy lifting over there and I thought I might pitch in for her, for Dave, and for the rest of the crew.
What can I say? No excuse. It just is what it is.
I’m now a very rare and infrequent poster at BoFN (**cough cough** because someone changed the theme **cough cough** and it seems like you have to be like a computer programmer or something now to **cough cough** put the Officially Specified BoFN Caption[tm] under the photos **cough cough**) but I just put up a post. Check it out if you’re a jazz fan!
If you’re interested, another contribution over at BoFN.
Wherein I interrupt my blog hiatus to present my latest over at the Blog of Funny Names. Please check it out!
Otherwise I’m taking time out from all blogging, including the BoFN gig, with apologies to my talented and delightful colleagues there.
I may still be dropping a music post here occasionally if I can get a little mojo working. I wish all readers well!
Monday marked a milestone at the Blog of Funny Names: its 500th post. There were generous shout outs from the great monarch Dave to the whole crew there, including to yours truly. The following day, BoFN’s 501st post was considerably less of a milestone, but did have the distinction of being my own. Yes, it was me doing my usual monthly stint. This time it was on Tristram Shandy, a gentleman from the literary archives of yore who famously had a hard time getting to the point. And had a funny name. Please go over there if you have any inclination, and make what you will of these two Internet offerings.
Head over to BoFN to see my latest contribution if you like Zappa in general, early 70s Zappa, instrumental Zappa, or any combination thereof.
Now playing over at The Blog of Funny Names.
I’m playing it straight over at BoFN this time, to mark the upcoming centenary of the birth of Sun Ra. Check it out if you like seriously offbeat music!
