We’ve sung the praises of folks that we’ve met at Balticon here before and this Friday will be no different. I had the pleasure of meeting @JohnAnealio last year at the live I Should Be Writing where he sang “George RR Martin is Not Your Bitch” and I instantly fell in like. His singing and playing were solid, not always true of folks in his line of music, but more important his lyrics were hilarious.

Once I got home I sought out his blog where you can find many, many equally geeky songs (if not geekier) and it was no fluke. I laughed and sang along and knew that I found a great new singer to follow.

His Twitter stream is virtually self promotion free (almost to a fault), but that is often to an artist’s ultimate benefit. Instead, he talks about music, geeky stuff, and promotes the efforts of his fellow musicians and writers. Since he doesn’t do the heavy lifting for himself, allow me. If you like his music, you can purchase it at his bandcamp site. I know I’m going to, so that I can have some nifty music to listen to on my way to Maryland.

Well that’s our #FF for the week. Look for more content in the coming week. Doc and I have locked and loaded some stuff in advance so we can party with our fellow time travelers. We hope to see some of you in Hunt Valley next week!
