The Hangover

Sincere thanks to NMX and staff for a great day and for the opportunity to present concerning song blogging and the unique community that participates here. I was part of a three-person panel presentation. It was a personal thrill even as our session was likely the first in history to quote Messianic Judaism, Bob the Builder, and Jay-Z for emphasis. I would say that it was eccentric but mostly just crazy.

For my wife’s sake, I invited the crowd to confirm my physical presence at the conference. I think she believes I’m just here for Celine Dione and the Osmonds. And while most husbands, alone in Las Vegas for three days, might be tempted to slip off for some of Donny’s fancy footwork or Celine’s ethereal tones, this Promisekeeper stood strong. But, trust me, not without some serious exercise of resolve. My Heart Will Go On in that Canadian drawl? Simply irresistible.

And, while the video certainly corroborates my whereabouts at the presentation, it’s between me and the seductive streets of Las Vegas as to whether I later resisted the wacky, red-headed siren call of Scott “Carrot Top” Thompson.

Stays in Vegas, baby.

What Happens in Vegas: NMX Conference

I’m super excited to announce that I’ve been invited to speak on a panel at the upcoming New Media Expo (NMX) in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 6-8, 2013, about song blogging. NMX is “the World’s Largest Conference & Trade Show for Bloggers, Podcasters, Web TV & Video Series Creators.” This of course means that it is also known for being the largest gathering of sexy people anywhere in the world.

Passes to the conference are still available and if you’re in the area you should come through. There’s a ton to do, I hear. We could make a blood pact and then wake up the next morning having lost our best friend who is scheduled to be married in a matter of hours. Or maybe we could rob a high security vault at the Bellagio, stare at her fountains, and then walk discreetly into the night. Or, even better, we could gamble away our life savings and be forced to offer, in satisfaction of the debt, my wife to an aging billionaire. Too many great choices! It’ll be a blast regardless. Hope to see you there!
