You never know who’s reading Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone?

It’s nice to know that people are reading Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone? This blog is a labor of love and a tool for sharing at least a little of that love with the world. I can see the page hits on my counter, but rarely know if those hits wind up connecting with readers. Most days I can only hope.

But this morning, I got proof that people are paying attention. When I logged on to my email, I saw a note that Stew posted on the negroproblem mesage board, for fans of Stew, Heidi Rodewald, The Negro Problem and Passing Strange. Because he was out of the country, Stew couldn’t make it to Wednesday’s premiere performance of “Carlton,” their commission for the marching band Asphalt Orchestra at Lincoln Center Out of Doors. WYMMWIG? posted a clip of that performance as part of Lincoln Center Out of Doors, and it looks like that rough clip gave Stew his first look at the premiere.
