Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Adam and I will perform at tonight's Bear's Lair open mic, barring disasters. He'll sing and play the guitar, I'll do stand-up. The Original Odd Couple.

This is less a "come see us!" invite than sort of an obligatory record of my upcoming performance in a public space. My point is, please feel under no obligation to come on down, but do indeed come on down if it strikes your fancy.

Josh, the cook, who took my signup over the phone, told me that the usual mix at these open mics is "80% acoustic-guitar singer-songwriters, and the remaining twenty percent is people trying to do bad hip-hop."

As long as I'm doing funny quotes: I used up the end of a roll of film this morning by taking pictures in my apartment. Paulina didn't object, but Benoit cried out in mock-despair, "We're nothing to you! We're just -- the end of the film!"
