The awesomeness is off the hook.

The Seth Parade Float

Seth Wineking

Seth — yes, THAT Seth — has designed a parade float of the Wine King for the Niagara Arts Centre. Can we somehow get this into the Tournament of Roses parade? The petition begins NOW.

Blog Fail

Due to circumstances beyond our control, NJ Transit and allergies, we won’t be able to do the SPX Debuts like we usually do. Deepest apologies to everyone who sent us stuff, and we’ll try to make up for it somehow.

We will, however, be at SPX this weekend, moderating the Jeffrey Brown panel at some point, and generally enjoying the camaraderie and ambiance that only Bethesda can offer. See you there!
