become synonymous with accordion use in Vancouver (read all 6 entries…)
It certainly is everyday now

The 2000 MySpace friends of the radio show blossomed to 5000, then we started collecting them on Facebook. The monthly circle moved to Spartacus, and got a website. My band was invited to play at the 20th annual installment of a prestigious accordion festival in California, and I singlehandedly pulled off programming 8 days of squeeze here in town for our 3rd annual Accordion Noir fest. Last month we celebrated the 4th anniversary of the weekly radio show ’s establishment, and every episode is (eventually) downloaded as a podcast thousands of times.

We have just organized as a society, and I have just organized as an accordion teacher. I don’t know if the instrument is experiencing a renaissance, but I certainly am experiencing a burst of its revival around myself!

UnwashedMass

This dovetails well with my “go on tour” goal pretty well. During my 2002 cross-country trip I picked out the largest, most inpenetrable books in my shelf that I would never read otherwise, because Canada is a large country and small books would barely be a drop in the bucket that is the vastness of the prairies. That got me through Gravity’s Rainbow and Moby Dick.

Fortunately I’m blessed with a constitution allowing me to read while in a moving vehicle, so I hope to take my upcoming two-month spell on the highway as an opportunity to finish off Don Quixote and maybe some Dostoevsky. What’s this? A collected anthology of Mark Twain’s writings? Okay, I’ll stow it next to Augustine’s City of God. Big books for big trips.
