Storytelling Night in New Delhi

Hello all in Nether Neighborhoods of Nonsensabad! I write to you from the bosom of Gurgaon, where I have been ensconced for nigh two plus weeks. I've been checking the nonsense gauges and baubles here, twiddling and tweaking the twoddlemeters...strictly procedural, you understand. I can safely report that the underground reserves of nonsense are still burbling blatantly, and that there will indeed be a gusher coming soon to a well near you. As long as you live near New Delhi. That is to say, I will be participating in the Scholastic India Storytelling Night this coming Friday, to read from "The Moustache Maharishi" and other nonsensical nodes. If anyone is around, please do stop by! Info below!

The next step... Slaprica! or.. Africow! or...

It has been a long time, my nefarious nodes, since our last communication. Since then we have been undertaking something of a nonsense hibernation, with drifts of neologisms piling up outside our cave. Still, all is well, and we are about to emerge! The grandest news is that I have been awarded the Newbury Comics Faculty Fellowship, a Berklee/Newbury Comics joint venture of mysterious proportions, that will enable me to pursue the nonsense beast, as in the days of fjord, with full vim and wigor in Africa. Many thanks to Berklee for this honor... and now it is for me to make my plans... which should include South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, and perhaps other countries. I will go where the winds of whipple take me, and where I can find kindred nonsense spirits. Are you one of them?

I reach out with my noodly appendage to all out there... asking if you have the ability or the desire or the artichokes to help with the search for nonsense in Africa. Please get in touch, if so!

Meanwhile, I'm off to India for a little nonsense reconnaissance... to make sure The Tenth Rasa: An Anthology of Indian Nonsense is still a towering force of flan. Any nonsense doings shall appear here in three part harmony in dude time.

Until then,
I shall remain,
your nonsense niambic neepameter,
