JoCo Cruise Crazy!
Jonathan Coulton, Paul & Storm, Wil Wheaton, John Hodgman, and a whole bunch of geek musicians, gamers, and professional Quitters (people like me who’ve quit their day jobs to chase their dream jobs full-time) – all dubbed Sea Monkeys – will be cruising the Caribbean for a week starting tomorrow. And I’m going with them!
I’m not normally the kind of person to go on a cruise, particularly somewhere hot, but this one’s different. It’s a geek music cruise! How could I resist it? There will be all sorts of opportunities to see great shows, meet kindred spirits, annoy the Snorks (non-geek cruisers) with excessive joy for the unorthodox, and I’ll sing whenever they’ll let me near a mic.
One of the events is a Fez & Mustache Formal night, and many people spice up their fezes with personal touches. So I did this.
Miyakazi is one of my favourite writer/directors, and I’m in love with soot sprites. I even found a soot sprite dress to go with it!
So I’ll be gone for a week, madly writing songs for FAWM whenever I can, and catching up when I get back. In the meantime, here’s a geeky music project Devin Melanson and I are working on, called Episode:Audio. Star Wars vignettes from strange and unusual perspectives. How cool is that?
Happy FAWMing, fellow writers! And for the rest of you, happy listening!
