Has it been two years ALREADY??!!! Must be time for me to post a new blog. I’ll keep it brief, on account of I have about sixteen other things I should be writing right now. The problem is – those other things are really hard. The people who will be reading those other things have certain expectations in regard to “quality” and “pertinence” and “sensibility” and “this-doesn’t-make-any-goddam-sensisbility”. So you can appreciate where doing one of these blogs is a more attractive proposition.
The other factor to consider is that I only have a few minutes until I have to start getting ready to do a standup show here in Moncton, NB. (All tour dates posted here under “Tour Schedule”). So I can’t delve into the depths those other things require right now. And remember, that is only one of the many potential excuses I have at my disposal.
If I have a point here, and I don’t, it’s to say that I am now in charge of updating this website myself. For years I employed my loyal, faithful, man-servant Gilrod in this capacity. He was able to put anything I sent his way up on to this internet machine, as I had no such skills or abilities. The problem is that Gilrod has vacated his position of showbusiness underling in favour of going to law school to become a lawyer. Well la-dee-doodley-ding, Gilrod. Bully for you!!! But all that means is, in a couple or three years you’re going to be putting on a stuffy, itchy suit and tie every morning. The law offices of Whoever, Blahbitty & Whatsits isn’t going to let you breeze into work in your flannel sweats and mesh T-shirt like I used to do. (I used to demand it, as I recall). At any rate, I have received much tutoring and guidance in respect to the technical points of updating this site, and I now seem to be able to do just that. So I’ll try to do it soon and often. Or at least until the novelty wears off.
CHECK BACK SOON!!!
**NOTE: It’ll still always say ‘Posted by Gilrod’ because no one taught me how to change that. A constant and sad reminder of simpler times. Chin up web world. Chin up.
