So, still reeling a bit from the move and all the new stuff that’s happening elsewhere, but I did get the time to drop in for the MoCCA Arts Festival at the Armory last Saturday.

Plus, it’s just great to be back in the city. Last time I arrived here, I wrote a short piece on my then platform, the editorial section of Rackham (Danish alert!).

There are still a few kinks to be worked out in terms of fully settling here, and work places different demands on my time than I’ve been used to, but I nevertheless hope to maintain a steady presence here at the Bunker as well as around my other internet haunts (+ newly at Twitter @Metabunker) for the foreseeable future.

Don’t touch that dial.
