And so it begins!

World Wide Web rejoice!

I've decided to try my hand (well, hands, both needed for typing) at a blog. Hopefully the growing pains will be short-lived and the ramblings will be amusing. 

The title of the blog refers to the greatest bear/snake/lizard/weasel/fish band ever to rock a Christmas talent competition--the Riverbottom Nightmare Band. A staple growing up, Jim Henson's fall classic Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas holds up amazingly well after all of these years. The music is top notch--and, with my recent dabblings into Garageband, I've recorded an a cappella version of said talent show song, which I'll post a link to here when I am satisfied with it. Ah, the things you have time for when you are part of California's now 10.1% unemployment rate!


  1. I KNEW there was a reason I always liked you.... I love Emmett Otter and all it stands for.

  2. Directed here by RiffTrax... will stay because you mentioned Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas.
