And thank goodness for it.
I like doing shows, don’t get me wrong, but I’m just glad that 2016 is almost over. We can count it in days now, people. So let’s celebrate with my last market of the year. Somerville Local First is presenting their Holiday Marketplace on Sunday December 11th from 10am-4pm.

This weekend isn’t all about Turkey, Black Friday, and football. It’s also about Small Business Saturday & Sunday, sometimes called Plaid Saturday & Sunday. These days are the exact opposite of what Black Friday is all about. They’re about shopping at local stores, shopping handmade, and keeping your holiday spending in your local economy where it will do the most good.
As it so happens, I have two Small Business Weekend shows this weekend, and they’re going to be a wonderful antidote to Black Friday insanity, indigestion from eating too much, and Forced Family Fun Time.

In an unlikely combination that could probably only happen in Boston and, specifically, only in Somerville. Geoff and I combined an evening of tasty Tibetan cuisine with a Zombie Opera for our Valentine’s outing.

You know, there are some new operas that just don’t interest me that much. There’s something uninspired or over academic about some of the stuff that I’ve seen recently that has left me cold.
Then Teri* told me she was auditioning for a Zombie Opera. And I was intrigued.

As much as I try to pretend otherwise, it is November. And while this does mean that there is a lot of really good music happening this month, it also means that it’s time for Holiday Craft Show Season to really get underway. My schedule is packed with great shows. If you need gifts for people who are interesting, quirky, hard to shop for, or just want something one of a kind, look no further.
Seriously, click on that link below. It’s right down there.

It has been a long time since I wrote anything about ASOIAF/GoT. And there’s only a couple of weeks until Season 4 is out on DVD/Blu-Ray, and a couple of months until Season Five starts.
So Kelly and I recently watched the “Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life” special and they specifically talk a bit about Hardhome. I have been thinking about what might be going on there in Season Five. Sure, there will be lots of other stuff going on, but the North is the region that I think is my favorite, and so anything involving the North, including the Nights Watch and the Wildlings, is sure to get my attention.*
So here is what I think might happen with all things North.
