 note - this post brought on because an acquaintance's husband died very suddenly from a motorcycle accident. add to that they are still dealing with recovery of cancer and have a small child.

mortality is really dumb. and it can be taken away from you at any time. we forget that. it is so easy to get bogged down in all the bullshit (tho often the bullshit does need to be dealt with - and while crass, the bullshit is especially bad if someone dies unexpectedly).

just know that I care about all of you and I am very appreciative that you are in this world.

Someone requested I post this, and while I did on face space, I am going to here as well

from the website

Exquisite Baroque masterworks by Charpentier, Buxtehude, and Zelenka alternate with newly-composed compositions by Artistic Director Allen H Simon to present not just the first noel, but the second, third, and more. Christmas music abounds to start your season right — hearing the traditional story told in ways old and new!

 you can get tickets over here but I have some that are a bit cheaper if you want to get to me direct. 

I have to say we are doing some really lovely pieces. 

oh and you get to see me in my oh so sexy choir dress (WHY do they have to always be so awful? WHY???)

NJ: Hoboken: Hoboken news I've been able to find: Donations being collected at Hoboken City Hall. Also, from the Hoboken Facebook page: "Food truck serving thousands of free meals at Church Square Park
and 3rd & Washington. The Elks will also serve food. ATMs are being set up at Bloomfield & Observer. Emergency Operations Center: 201-239-6644."

And for Newark, Lizzie Skurnick sent me this from Cory Booker's Twitter feed: "Please call 973 733 4311 RT @RepEated_DejaVu Where can Newarks go to volunteer?"

I wanted to send this before but it has been kind of stupid

but have CDs!!!!!!

*and there was much rejoicing*

 

you can buy it over from our Distributor COP International



If you are inclined to get them direct from me, I can get it signed by everyone too if you are inclined to want that sort of thing (tho I don't have too many to that with so let me know!)

also, we are on iTunes as well, and we will be on Amazon in a couple of months once the logistics, shenanigans and voodoo sacrifices have been made

but YAY

you can now go and purchase the new Razor Skyline album online!

Dark Water Oasis is available now

I just cannot believe some people sometimes

today is an election. and as this is my privilege, I went to the polls first thing which my iphone full of notes so I could be quick as possible.

granted, I was never so organized in the past. and I also never really researched candidates that well (after all, they are often all the same). I admit that I have just gone along with party lines for the most part

but as there are always various measures being voted on even if I hate everyone who is running, I DO want my vote counted on various measures, taxes, and things happening with my local community and my state.

I reminded folks on facespace and G+ to go vote and I had one person tell me they never voted ever (and yes they are a citizen) and another tell me that they 'don't like the choice they are presented with' and another person tell me that government only works for big business so why bother.

I think back to propsition 8 and perhaps if more folks actually voted, folks I love would have the same rights as me

Then I see things like this, where the Senate blocked equal pay for women who do the same job as men as it would burden the business owners and I think HOW CAN YOU NOT VOTE PEOPLE???? 

WE put those people in office. if you voted or didn't, you made a choice (and not voting is absolutely a choice) and that choice helped decide who represents us. perhaps if more folks went to the polls we would have better government that represents us. instead most folks care more about the latest reality TV show 

sad bun bun is sad with all the apathy
