- You've heard me talk about the magic of Dance of Shiva. Maybe you're a little curious? Well, Briana and Eileen host a Shiva Nata Dance Party this January at the Hopscotch Distillery and you're invited. See if it's for you.
- I had the good luck to stumble onto a Pauline Oliveros sound performance a few years ago and was, not surprisingly, blown away. So when Nathan Madsen send me a tweet about her new program, I was intrigued.

- Related: according to Fabeku, you can be strategic about social media and yet not be a dick. Go figure.
