In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

New Blowhard

A brief timeout to introduce a new addition to the cast here at 2Blowhards.

Vanessa del Blowhard is an old friend, as well as a fellow media-artsworld semi-pro. She's based in Chicago and ...

Well, to be honest, she's content to leave the personal details at that. But I can say that she's talented, smart and funny, and that she never fails to find her own wry take on things. I'm pleased I was able to persuade her to climb on blogboard for the next month, as well as relieved to be able to go back to the old "Dear Someone .... Best, Somone Else," epistolary format that Friedrich and I made use of.

(Lord, I do hate being a solo artist.)

I'm looking forward to co-blogging with Vanessa, and I know y'all will enjoy getting to know her.

Welcome, Vanessa. Perhaps Michael will now be happy once more.

Hurray for this. I do much of my blog-reading using an RSS reader (lets me see who's updated and who hasn't) and it's been very odd this past little while to click on the new headers for 2 Blowhards and find the post doesn't begin with the words "Dear Michael" or "Dear Friedrich". It hasn't been the same somehow.

What if Friedrich decides to return, though? 3 Blowhards?

Oh, so now you we have Our Very Own "Our Girl In Chicago"...
