My husband has a student who he has jokingly diagnosed with "O.P.G Syndrome"--it stands for Other People's Guitars. In any gathering of guitarists he must go around and play everyone else's instrument, especially if it's one he hasn't seen before. So I'm calling today's piece "O.P.P." in his honor, that is, "Other People's Posts".
- HowChow is back, and we don't know for how long, so throw caution to the winds and dive in. I feel like I'm binge-reading an entire season, and it's delicious.
- Lisa Marini Schlossnagle and her family continue to keep us posted on their year-long voyage 'round the world. Most recent posts are here, on Bangkok and Singapore.
- Bill Woodcock of The 53 has done a rather thorough commentary on County Executive Alan Kittleman's first year in office. Definitely worth the read. I'll be touching on this tomorrow.
Here's one of my own from last year that Facebook threw at me yesterday. I read it with a kind of horrror: what on earth possessed me to write this thing? Campy, over-the-top, it reads like a rough sketch for a middle school revue. With music it might make a truly awful Christmas special. Maybe we could call it "Santastic!" I hope you enjoy it, and if you don't, well...it's short.
