Today, my husband's band played at church and I got some very good videos. One is of his band singing Stand By Me. I thought it would be cool to share their version with you.
Unfortunately, I was unable to upload it either to YouTube or to my blog. And so I will have to content myself with a still photo of the band. Small, very small, consolation.
On another note, I read a short short story of mine at an open mic at Quail Ridge Books today. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't quite what I think I was expecting! Mostly poets. There were a few underhanded compliments such as, "I wish I hadn't had to follow Jack!" and beyond that mostly polite applause. I felt as though each person came to hear themselves read, not listen to others. I don't think I'll participate in an open mic again.
