When I first moved to Baltimore about 7 years ago, I quickly realized that the primary “cool” publication to be associated with was the Baltimore City Paper. They put out a “Best Of Baltimore” Issue every year and to be named within it is a much coveted distinction (that some people have even been know to campaign for). Well of course I soon made it my goal to one day be named within it’s pages.
I wish I could say that I’ve achieved that goal, but alas, I have not…. although I’m getting close. This year Several things to which I am vaguely associated were named and I can’t help but feel a little bit of pride, even if it is a stretch to say that I had anything to do with them getting the award.
Baltimore Rock Opera Society (I was props master and trombone player in their production of “Murdercastle” which merited the award)
– Best Ambition
1814: The Rock Opera (I was the “Stage Manager, Mic Wrangler and Props Designer)
– Best Historic Reenactment
An Innocent Looking Bookstore (I was a guest, and also voiced one of their segment liners, not to mention the few times I contributed to their “Querstions” segment)
– Best Offensive Podcast
– Best Baltimore Podcast (Readers Poll)
I should also mention that “Digression Sessions,” another podcast I guested on, was nominated and made it to the top 3 of Best Baltimore Podcasts….
I’d still like expound here even more, but this post is getting closer to what I want it to be…
Check back in a few days to see if I’ve updated this post anymore.
