Well, it’s February again, and that means fundraising time for the Speechwriters. The good news? You, the listeners, are for once exempt from our mad quest for cash. Winter is the closest thing our industry has to an “off season,” and February is traditionally the month where we dust off our fancy clothes and try to tease as much meat as we can from the impeccably manicured hand of The Man.
What this means in real terms is that I am currently sitting at a computer, behind enemy lines and bored out of my mind, and I’m going to try my damnedest not to let this get in the way of my real job, which is entertaining and educating the fans of this band while receiving payment from an unspecified third source.
So stay tuned – I’m going to try to get back in the habit of updating this thing every couple of days.
