I’m a fan Fridays!

I’ve decided that on Fridays from now on, I’m going to post something from YouTube, or some other site, that I’m a fan of; something I think is awesome.  Most likely, it will have something to do with the performing arts, but don’t hold me to that.  Who knows what I might be moved by?  […]
