1) I, Adrian, will hereby be writing all the blog's posts. No more writing staff.
2) We canceled our holiday party and have pulled our "pizza fridays" program.
3) I will reimburse the company's coffers for personal trips I've taken.
Now, let's get down to business. I'd like to take opportunity of this blog to share some thoughts and feelings on contemporary performance here in NYC. You know, there's so much mediocrity out there that it's a downright shame to not shout out the awesome. In this case, the awesome is a one-man band called Joyengin. The lone member is Walker Adams. He plays drums, keyboard, and sings at the same time. The professed goal of the band is to spread joy to the world and based on what I saw a couple of weeks ago, it's impossible to deny that he does that very effectively. There are a few videos of his stuff on Youtube, including one with excerpts from the gig I attended, but they don't do justice to the experience. Here's one that comes closest to the mark.
