the waters around you have grown

There are going to be some changes around here.

I'm going to be spending a lot more time downtown, if not physically, then certainly intellectually. Downtown YYC, these days, is where my creative bread is being buttered. I'm embarking on some new blogging gigs, about which I am utterly chuffed, and I will be posting links here as those posts go live. I would love to have you come visit me on these new sites.

Here are my new hoods:

Music Matters, where I will be volunteer blogging for Cantos Music/National Music Centre. My first post is about the Famous Five. Sort of.

East Village Experience, where I will be covering events and getting swept up in the growing excitement of the newly reborn East Village.

GETDOWN.ca, where I am the newly minted music contributor for the Calgary Downtown Association.

But fear not, faithful readers, badtemperedzombie.com remains. I will continue to obsess and ruminate here (or simply let loose my brain farts) for as long as I am annoyed, entertained, mesmerized, puzzled, and
inspired by this great big crazy world. You can't get rid of this little zombie all that easily!

I'm so happy for you, Barb! You never know where these gigs might lead you! Good luck!

Congratulations! I'm with Wandering Coyote about you never know where things might lead. I think leaving the lab was the best thing to happen to you. Good luck with it all.

Thanks, WC. I know you speak from experience, too, with the great Telegraph gig you had.

Leaving the lab was crucial, Toccata. It's so much more satisfying to be working freelance. Thanks for the good wishes.

Wow, exciting, B!! Congratulations on all the new gigs!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's all really exciting for me, Susan! There are so many incredible things happening in our city, it really deserves the culture capital status.

Nice, Mr Anchovy, thanks! I do love Knopfler's signature guitar licks. And I need to get me one of those hats...

You are gifted with Vesuvious for an inkwell and a mighty pen to make use of it. Splendid fit.

Allison said...

It's wonderful all these opportunities are coming your way! It's always at once isn't?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

What a wonderfully evocative image, Leazwell! I am very flattered, but think perhaps you are the one with the Vesuvian inkwell.

Feast or famine continues to ring true, Al. I'll take the feast, thank you!
