Free show tonight!

Dear fellow travelers,

The marvelous Joey No Knows and I will be putting on a show tonight at the Partisan!

Oh yes.

Oh yes.

The show is 21+, free, and there will be drink specials all night. It will also be recorded, so if you’re abducted by dastardly leprechauns and can’t make it out tonight, you’ll be able to stream the show online in about a week.

 

Hope to see you there!

 

Ukulele sonnet

I wrote this a while back, but just rediscovered it. Enjoy!

If I knew how to play my own guitar
I sometimes think that then I’d have arrived
I’d play Stones, Ramones, and Sabbath… be a star!
Be metal-er than anyone alive
These fond delusions last about as long
Well, to be honest, long as it usually takes
To butcher,mutilate one of my songs
I clutch the too-big frets until it aches
Pitifully I flail and quickly tire
Return the beast to dusty hibernation
Were I Jimi I’d just set the thing on fire
I lack such pure demonic inspiration
But I’m no Hendrix, nor was meant to be…
My ukulele’s good enough for me!

Let me stand next to your FIRE

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.-T.S. Eliot
