Solstice: The Prequel
Thursday, June 22 at 3:16 p.m.
Yesterday was the summer solstice, and it turned out to be a pretty interesting day/evening. More on that in a bit.

But at this moment, I would like to make an announcement: due to popular demand, I will be getting a haircut today.

That, I am sure, will come as good news to the many of you who - it seems - have made a career out of reminding me of the most opportune moments for doing so.

I'm grateful. Really.

Oh, and listen to this while you're waiting:

Monsieur Astor
Arnaud Methivier, AKA Nanno
From the album L'Autre Cote du Vent (The Other Side of the Wind)

What's the primary instrument? Shouldn't be too hard to guess...
