March 12, 2006I met Mavi at Kennywood Park in 1999. She was a friend of a friend. The irony is that it was Mavi's company's annual picnic, so my original motivation was a free day at Kennywood including food. She asked me, "Do you always dress like that?" I LOVE that question! (smile)
Then that same year, I crashed her New Years Eve party at 3 AM.
This will be year 6 for Mavi and me. Through the thick and the thin, we remain friends.
Mavi is determined to do things for herself and work hard to make those things happen. I respect that.
Thank you, Mavi.
I play violin for an experimental/electronic/ambient group known as Nyarlathotep, The Crawling Chaos--that's a reference to the works of HP Lovecraft and the Cthulu mythos. I've also sat in with local artists such as Patricia Wake, Ishtar, Bonfire Night, and the Wild Geese. A bit of history and some highlights from my music career:
* July 2007 - (with Nyarlathotep) opened for Attrition at The Rex Theatre
* Aug. 2007 - (with Nyarlathotep) featured in an "Electronic music showcase" at the Sphinx lounge
* Aug. 2007 - (with Nyarlathotep) opened for Android Lust at Cyber Wars
* Sept. 2007 - (with Nyarlathotep) opened for Thomas Christ at the BBT
* Nov. 2007 - (with Patricia Wake) opened for The Last Dance
*Mar. 2008 - (with Patricia Wake) opened for Baby Dee
I've studied tribal fusion bellydance for about seven years. My primary influences have been members of Zafira Dance Co., and I've also taken classes and workshops from Jill Parker, Heather Stantz, Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, and Fat Chance Belly Dance, to name a few. I also make costumes, and I teach classes in the Pittsburgh area. I'm always looking to meet new people and try new things.

Went to Maria's Intermediate dance class at her new Boheme studio in Bellvue last night and got my butt kicked thoroughly. I was long overdue for a butt-kickin' the likes of which can only be had by going to Maria's class. She changed up her warmup routine a bit, but the drills were similar to those we worked on the last time I went to her class in Squill. Lots of technique and layering. I didn't realize how desperately I missed going to bellydance class until last night. It might have been a... read moreFri, September 12, 2008 - 11:17 AM permalink - 0 comments

Belated congrats to Melissa who received an AoA from Aethelmearc at Pennsic this year. I didn't get a chance to mention it because I was dealing with all the PITA stuff, and work, and more work.... but anyhoo, she earned it many times over. She now ranks as my #1 favorite noble. Come to think of it, I have a lot of friends with pointy hats, mostly Barons/Baronesses of either the land or court variety, not to mention all the folks I know who hold offices, like herald or seneschal, and those wi... read moreMon, August 25, 2008 - 9:21 AM permalink - 3 comments
