Because we all need this the night before Election Day. Calm. Chill. Take it easy. I got you.

Who gets 10%: I’m doubling down on Zinnia’s college fund and doing this again, because it’s family, so the following is a rerun. This way I can write 2 checks:
My best friend lost his daughter, Liz.
I was her Uncle Vance.
I’ll give money to a college fund for her 6 year-old daughter Zinnia Jane’s future. I know, not local non-profit giving, not this time. This is family.

$$$: or or
a check to VanceFunder P.O. Box 17, Arlington, MA 02476 for this web-groovery.
Pay or not. It’s up to you. Let’s just stay connected.

This week’s pajamas: We’ll see.

I coach voice, songwriting, performance. Contact me. I have some open spots

One Thousand Nine Hundred and Sixty-Eight Winters

Got up this morning
Feeling good & black
Thinking black thoughts
Did black things
Played all my black records
And minded my own black business
Put on my best black clothes
Walked out my black door
And, Lord have mercy: white snow!

Jaci Earley


Like all of us, Lizzy had her doubts,
but I know that she also had tremendous strength.
Holding onto these memories of her.
Passing them along to Z.

Tom Hallman (father of recently deceased daughter Lizzy, grandfather of Zinnia)


Who for is your own damn business.
But consider voting for the one that makes it safe for me
to drive home from this show after 11PM.

We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me?
We gon' be alright
