How did you experience that crazy storm last night? W42nd Street looked like Kansas — as this amazing Wizard of Oz video from J-Line shows.
We found a new apartment, so it’s time to get my life (and clutter) sorted. First up, dealing with that storage unit!
As if to prompt me a little more, Sandra sent me a link from her morning news trawl about the history of the Radio Flyer. Sadly, our three little red wagons are all banged up after 6 years of W42ST delivery duties and in need of some love and repair. Does anyone know a good home for them?
Our friends at the Empire Men’s Chorus have been surviving the pandemic with socially distanced singing. This week they are sharing a new work. Coming About tells the beautiful true story of two men whose love for one another literally saved their lives at sea. There’s a little something for everyone, from Peter Gabriel to William Finn, rock to traditional choral to spiritual. Aaron Hock told us: “I promise it will spark hope and those good goosebumps you get when you hear excellent music. Oo!” You can find their Patreon (and a sample of the audio visual production) here.
