Now Tooting on Mastodon

Like so many recently, I’m hedging my bets on Twitter, and have set up shop on Mastodon.  Follow me and I will very likely follow you back!

I joined the first server I could find, but would ideally like to join a local community.  Drop me a line (on Mastodon or Twitter!) if you know of any Astoria-based servers.

Performances of the 39th season of Astor Street Opry‘s Shanghaied in Astoria are running through August 20, 2023.

Shanghaied in Astoria is a vaudeville-esque musical melodrama set in mid-summer 1904, around the time of the annual Scandinavian Midsummer Festival.  Eric Olson, our Norwegian hero, sets out to rescue his sweetheart Miss Virginia Sweet, who is a ward of the villainous Max Krooke.
