  1. East Village Opera Company is definitely awesome! I much enjoyed the video and finally found the link to the actual song.
    Going back to uni sounds like a good cure for boredom, I wish you luck.

  2. I, too, enjoyed following the EVOC link and listening to their music. Too bad you couldn’t play it on your podcast though. But thanks for the link.

    Enjoyed your essay this week, too.

  3. I’m sure you’ve had this before but roseknits 247 is phrased 24(hours in a day)- 7(days a week)or twenty four seven. It’s our way of saying round the clock.

  4. So glad you enjoyed the EVOC music, David! Make sure your readers also view the EVOK EPK video which is the first one listed on their website.. great overview of what they do, and you get a peek of them in concert.

    Their on stage show is awesome.
