Pyramid for the second and third time

I presented a building of a pyramid on Friday for the second time. I added some new lines into it and, overall, it went better than the first time because there was more space. I got a lot of valuable feedback and I feel that the third time is going to be a charm.

Come see my act, which is a part of Field Trips, Friday, May 16th at 19:30 at Hamlin Park (3035 N. Hoyne) in Chicago.

Feel free to bring a camera and take photographs during the show.

Who is the weakest link?


I came across this song via Copy, Right. I remember the first time I heard that song. My sister was driving us to a swimming pool and we listened to the original version by Joan Armatrading on tape. My sister just got her drivers license and we got a little lost on our way. I remember my sister translating the lyrics to me and talking passionately about the song. Most of the nuance was probably lost on me at the time.

Today, after hearing the song for the first time after many, many years, I get the subtlety. I would have probably ignored the lyrics if it was not for the memory of that car ride.

This cover version is by Kris McKay, whom I have never heard of before, and I think I like it better than the original.
