It may have seemed like I fell off the planet, but that's much harder than I thought it would be...
I've missed being engaged with the fun stuff around town, so I will start updating the calendar by 1/16. Actual posts could even be appearing before the end of the month.
Thanks to anyone that might read this,

(Some of my person HonkFest pix)
Okay, trying to get back into the groove with Saturday & Sunday cheapness on the calendar.
This is basically a repost, because -- as I say below -- Honk Festival is my favorite day of the year in Somerville.
SAT 10/11 and SUN 10/12
Honk! Festival & Parade
around Davis Sq, Somerville & Harvard Sq, Cambridge
Saturday -- 12:3pm to 9pmThe HonkFest convenes horn bands of different shapes and flavors for a weekend of music and populist spirit.
Sunday -- Noon to 6pm
For the 8 years in a row, Davis Square is filled with horn music and beautiful freaks, as if a bit of New Orleans is dropped in the middle of Somerville. I go whenever I can, because it's my favorite free event of the year.
About 30 bands from around the country -- including a group from NOLA, Austin, and even London -- set up at different spots around Davis.
Spend as much time as you can to walk around find your favorites. Bring your positivity and your party shoes.
On Sunday, you can parade along with the bands to Harvard Square for a couple hours. Then many of the bands will perform on a couple of the Ocktoberfest stages.

Hold on to your hats; there may be more to come soon...
If I were going to do one thing Friday night, I'd go to the free rock show at Radio. If I wanted to dance, there's the "Videodrome Discotheque Madonna Birthday Party" or Lovewhip's gig at the Midway Cafe.
