As a Greeting for this Holiday season, I decided to dust off an old Pogo variation of one of my favorite Christmas Carols... Deck the Halls. I accompanied myself using my Guitar Hero Controller as a simple MIDI instrument (of course). Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Holiday season!
Again, for those who don't know, I'm singing the "Deck us all with Boston Charlie" version of the song written by the late Walt Kelly for his Pogo comic strip. I was a huge fan of the comic as a kid (as were other members of my family), and I distinctly remember hearing that version sung as a child... so it's a very Christmas thing for me.
Yes, I'm a Wiccan who celebrates Christmas... but if you've ever met my family, you won't think it's weird. None of us really subscribe to the popular religion that spawned this now effectively secular Holiday. All the stuff we actually do comes from old solstice celebrations anyways.
I know updates have been sparser on the site than ever, and I wish I could say that was going to change -- but for the next few weeks it won't. I'm working long hours, and with the Holidays thrown in, there just isn't a lot of spare time at the moment. So, consider this my official notice that the site updates will be quiet probably until January. Hopefully things will return to their normal pace after that point.
Crysta and I will be in Milwaukee for a few days around Christmas -- obviously for the Holiday itself, but then also for Friday and Saturday as well (we go back to Eau Claire on Sunday). If you want to hang out, give me a call. I don't have a huge amount of time, but I'd love to actually socialize while I'm there.
For New Years Crysta and I will be back in Eau Claire and we haven't made any plans yet. The idea of having a movie night has been thrown around, but nothing definite has been considered.
