Welcome to my site – it is not complete – nor will it ever be.    It will remain in a constant state of flux – but in a good way!    So enjoy the site and enjoy the “empty spaces”.    Stop back often and one day the spaces may be filled – but they will never be complete!

(Note: if some of you are seeing a link for a quiz or survey above – or anywhere else on this site – it is the handiwork of some pathetic loser spammer and is in no way endorsed by me and should NOT be clicked on or patronized for any reason.  There are NO quizes or surveys on this site and NO links that do not pertain to the content of the text.  Thankfully it is not embedded and a good adware blocker should elimnate the problem.  Thanks!)



Just letting everyone know that the final Pox entry (sadly Richard Milne is shutting down the show) for the annual WXRT Local Anesthetic Holiday Spectacular will air tonight (Sunday) at 10 pm (or so) and will be rerun one week later (the 24th) at the same time – so you have your very last chance to enjoy the magic!  This year’s selection is entitled “Praznik Žalopojka” for you Latin types…) – so go figure. 




(it was a good one!)

Once again, you may have missed the 23nd Annual 93XRT Local Anesthetic “Holiday Spectacular” – an hour-long special comprised of seasonal salutations from Chicago area artists – and presented in a beautiful sonic package by WXRT (93.1 FM)!  But through the miracle of the internet, you can hear the entire 2014 program here (“Benzinska Pumpa” – about 12-15 minutes in) or 2013’s here (I believe I come in right around the nine and a half minute mark) or you can even listen to the 2012 edition here free of charge!  Enjoy!
