It's all there on the link. Took me an hour or so to bang that out via Windows Live Writer (uploads directly to a blog), would have taken me three or more if I did it on ST. That and I wouldn't have control over my own content.

Love that first video! Isn't that Cab Calloway?? That's musicianship you don't see these days. And how about those dancers on the stairs - ouch.

And since when is the internet reliable at Curry??

TFPU!

Edit: Sure as hell IS Cab Calloway! Fabulous!

Jon is known for his incredible way with words....the quasi-urban vernacular always makes me LOL.

Pete, the internet was more reliable than my Verizon 4G in Camp 4...but reliable is relative.

Rad old pic! Plan is to hop on a plane to Portland tomorrow morning and see where the weekend and weather takes us. And stoke.


Thanks, Justin. Wish we had done more, but so often we focus on what we didn't do rather than what we did. Certainly a foible of mine.

Nice! I love the description of leading the first pitch of Serenity. I have no photos of my leading that pitch in modern conditions (i.e. free and clean, (I wouldn't let my second take a picture because I was too scared), so I particularly appreciated the picture of the starting runout. Thanks much.

Ezra - Thanks! It's all healed up, just being super careful to stay on top of keeping it clean/put some Lotrimin on when things get a bit funky.

Also, BUMP!
