Axial tilt is the reason for the season
Listening to:Terry Reid
Weather:22, foot o'snow on the ground
Happy solstice! Happy indeed. The daylight starts getting longer today, thankfully. Though we had a foot snowstorm this weekend we've really had a pretty reasonable season so far. And hell, the drive-in will be open in 4 months. I can handle just about whatever wintry stuff earth wants to throw at me for just 3 or 4 months. There have certainly been years when it started snowing in October and didn't quit til April.

But dangit the snow did hang me up. I was all ready to go to Jim K's solstice shindig and hootenanny last night, but the roads held me back. I even baked a couple of venison pot pies and cleaned a pomegranate for the adventure. But the roads were ridiculously sketchy, some places fine some places just absurd. So I chose instead of pick up livi and come home and watch Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys with her. Sweet solstice celebration anyhoo. But shitloads of venison pot pie to eat, and liv's a veg so it's up to me.

Nonsequitor, I saw some groovy indie, local, and foreign films at the first annual Pare Lorentz Film Festival in Clarksburg the weekend before last. It was at the Waldomore mansion, right next to the public library in downtown. A local filmmaker, Bob Wilkonson, screened his recent work Adopt a Jesus and stayed for Q&A. I dug it. It was really fun, I can't wait til next year. My friend Brice Kennedy screened his feature-length film of clips from his public access comedy TV show that weekend, too. It was delightful, very funny, and a fun premiere to attend, complete with free beer and pizza.
