Was planning on skipping you, to be honest. It's all about the Heston meetup.

That's both fair and sensible.

That'll be my plan whenever the hell I get there next.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Skipping James, as anyone who has met me will confirm, is a super-good idea.

I will cook for you all.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I keep hoping that B will get a conference opportunity in NC so that I have zero excuse not to share manhugs with Gene.
Walrus birth doesn't make good breakfast conversation!

Yes, awkward hugs all round!

Gene and I are chatting on fb. I just realized my parents are moving to an adjacent town to ole, Eummie. I predict Zorn listening parties in the future!

I skipped James once, but it was only because my travel companion didn't want to go to Croydon.

Also, pauses in conversation are normal. I don't know why people get awkward about them.

Usually just ends up with CTC sing alongs and playing swords.

This happened! Cory is a delightful human being and a good sport to hang out with the Vans Hagar and one of my oldest friends.

Excellent use of the plural. I agree, all the B's and Marcy were a lot of fun, even though Ari was asleep most of the time (I was hoping to get in some more Pottertalk)!
