October 22: This whole biannual Web site update is getting a little stale, don't you think? I'm not really doing my job here. The new album, Bad Apple, is going pretty well - got some bass parts to clean up, and then it's vocals time, baby. And the Somerville Songwriter Sessions has started up again, with a vengeance, which means that I will be gracing their stage sometime in the next few weeks. Pandemic? We don't need no stinkin' pandemic.
