Welcome to February's installment of "The Monthly Visitor". To be added to this mailing list, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: What's the difference between DD & TMV?
A: Great Q! TMV is shorter, accepts (selective) advertising on a sliding scale, and features guest editors.
QUICK NOTE: To receive The Monthly Visitor easily and painlessly, please mark email@example.com as NOT SPAM. Please do that anyway. Yahoo doesn't understand this is merely satirical sass and not an oil scam outfit or penis enlargement company.

Other benefits include show discounts, a membership card and more. To join free, email firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: SONG OF THE MONTH".
Feb's SONG OF THE MONTH hasn't come out yet. Instead, please accept Jan's SONG OF THE MONTH, late. It's a partially illustrated video because no one wants to waste their art degree forever. And that no one is me.
Jan's song is called "Touched By An Alien" and is about those probed peeps out there and this lady's perspective on it. Watch the video HERE (or you can scroll down to the next post and see it there) and don't forget to comment, rate the video and share with your friends, if they're your real friends, that is -- especially any Star Trek fans or space exploration lovers or NASA employed friends or people who believe they've had an encounter. All word donations graciously accepted, so please comment!
PS -- This video is NSFW because I drop the F bomb in it a few times and talk about butts. But it's not about vaginas, unless you consider butts to be vaginas.
Lookin' for fun, sailor? Just check out the right hand side of this blog and scroll down to see all dirty folk rock related upcoming events. For example, this Friday, I'll be at Carolyn Castiglia's free SPLURGE show at Happy Ending (corner of Broome & Forsythe) @ 8 PM. Also coming up are Monday's Tell Your Friends, Love, Sex, Kyle & Cleo & more. And if you haven't already, don't forget to subscribe to this blog to get notified when new entries are posted.

Congrats to all my friends who were nominated for ECNY (Emerging Comedians NY) Awards. I won the ECNY musical comedy award in 2005 or some shit, and it was an honor, a nod from NYC, and a lot of fun. So, support the ECNY Awards.
That's it for now, see ya soon my little avocados, and thanks for all your support and approval, presents, CDs, encouragement, love, handmade stuff and adoration. It gets me through the day.
