So, what happens when you bus 10,000 NYers to DC for a rally? They all try to take the Metro at once. NOT good!

Pics 1-4 more crowd shots!

Pic #5) News of the rally 24 hours later--what's NPR on about with that headline? Sounds like bias to me. :\

"Sanity/Fear Rally a protest of the absurd"

Shouldn't that be "protest *against* the absurd"?

Welcome to October in NYC! The high today will be 74F while the temp tomorrow will drop like a rock to the high 50s. Yeah, we can't figure it out either :\

Mother Nature: reminding us to check the weather reports daily or freeze our butts off on the way to the subway.

Upcoming performances of Sierra Rein

Kevin McMullen's "Twist Of Fate"

My next performances will be singing for Kevin McMullen's show "Twist Of Fate," an explosion of music inspired by Fortune, Fate, Love, Life, Death, The Afterlife and Reincarnation - all presented through storytelling and gorgeous music ranging from Broadway and Swing to contemporary and alternative Rock classics - songs from the likes of Louis Armstrong, kd lang, Styx, Peggy Lee and Olivia Newton-John. Multiple award-winners Miles Phillips (Director) and Mark Janas (Music Director) oversee an ambitious whirlwind of a show that unveils McMullan at the center of a six piece Gypsy Jazz Band and a dazzling assortment of Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves!

Hmmm...I wonder which of those last three categories I'm in?

"Twist of Fate" will perform at the Laurie Beechman Theater October 23rd (4 pm), 28th (9:30pm), November 20th (4pm), 29th (7pm), and December 4th (4pm). $20 Cover + $15 Food/Bevarage Minimum. Reservations: 212-695-6909. See the Facebook Event here for more information.

I'll be singing as the youngest sister in a showcase reading of the new musical "The Good Girl" - Music & Lyrics by Mary Liz McNamara, book by award-winning playwright Arden Kass and Mary Liz McNamara. Presented by Musical Mondays Theatre Lab, this reading will take place on Thursday, October 28 · 6:30pm - 8:00pm at the Snapple Theater Center, Jerry Orbach Theatre. Admission: $15. MMTL Subscription series of 4 shows for 2010-11: $40. (Payment by cash or check only at box office the day of show) For reservations, call 212-989-6706 or email reservations@musicalmondays.org.

Wow--I never wanted to be a Soul Reaper when I was a kid dressing up for Halloween.

Considering how parents groups get hyper about so many things kids are exposed to these days I'm a little surprised that I found this costume at Target. It caught my attention because, at first, I didn't see that first "e" in "reaper". Still, the costume seems a lot darker than a vampire or a werewolf.

To be fair, though, I have heard that children do sap their parents' souls right out of them.

Progress, but still not done with this fricken papercraft Lego minifig!!

One fricken arm left on this absurdly complicated papercraft model!

It's so frustrating--this thing can only be built by the likes of Edward Tweezerhands! ARG!!!!

FLICK!

Ahhh, that felt good...

The George Washington Bridge was wearing purple tonight. Not sure why.

Thanks to winter not quite being here yet, there were too many trees blocking the view, so I tried to get a closer shot, but the iPhone 3G's "zoom" kinda sucks in low light. :\

Still, you get the idea.

Got the Lego minifig papercraft arm done--damn complicated! Used almost as much Scotch Tape as paper!

Everything up top goes into the arm. Except that long piece with the serated bits. That's the neck, I think.

And now, a thunderstorm rolls into the city. WTF Mother Nature? Are you on the crack?

Building a papercraft Lego man progress shot

Building this while listening to raw audio I am cutting for the 666cast crom website666.com.

This is hard without instructions... not sure where all this goes.

Me about to enjoy a Salty Pimp from @biggayicecream !!

At @BigGayIceCream Truck and look! There's no line! AWESOME!

I think I burned the microwave popcorn. What do you think?

We either need a new brand or a new microwave. Probably the latter since my mom got it for me a year before I went to college... in 1989. O_O
