What's new in the J.C.

I was pleased to hear the sweet strains of Mr. Jonathan Coulton emanating from the Victrola this morning, on the NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday program. They included in their report a snippet of audio from his October appearance with Mr. John Hodgman at the Warehouse Theater. It made for some pleasant respite from all the liberal twaddle. And don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about. Give a listen here.

He is playing a set Sunday 12/17 at Jammin Java way out in godforsaken Vienna, miles from the nearest metro. Advance tickets are $12. Slightly more if you are not willing to commit in advance.
