I have been called, by my friends, a "warrior bard", which is code for
having a whole bunch of good friends who are willing to look past the
mis-fingered guitar chords, occasional verbal stumbles, mind-blocks,

If anyone is interested in the details of this opportunity, give me a
yell here. I realize that this deals with the mundane wourld, but I
thought you might like to hear of an opportunity to spread our kind of
muse amongst the common folk, and perhaps even a wee bit of
