My friend Amanda--who some of you may know from her years as the DCist Music Editor--started a new music blog this week called Pinna Storm. I kicked off a series of posts at her site called Picture Book, where folks will post a photo of a band and write a little bit about that particular musical moment. For the inaugural post, I wrote up a little something about Fugazi, Fort Reno and post-graduation malaise. Keep checking back, since I will most likely be contributing to that series in the future, and chip in if you think you have something worth sharing.

Eric had a pie party this weekend, wherein everyone attending was supposed to bring a pie. We didn't quite get to that level of participation, but 8 pies proved to be more than plenty. Too much pie, in fact, since I still have a bit of my lemon meringue pie to finish off this evening.
