Darin Bradley is all over this page, so I'm going to stop identifying him every time I have to mention him. If you don't know him by now, you haven't been paying attention (and judging by our traffic numbers, you haven't!).

And I'm going to start responding to the things he says over on Suvudu, where he has begun a new blog series about the Pox Eclipse in all its myriad forms.

This first post is just a hello, so we'll see what happens next. I'm not above a little recreational trolling ...

I had attended the first Denton-anchored event and was experiencing this bloated annual with every bit of awe and elation as, I expect, those who had put it together must have also felt.

Thursday night at NX35. Opening night. Denton is not a 9-to-5 kind of town, but even the indiest community feels the workday pinch when putting on a ruckus, even one as all-consuming as NX35.

NX35 Video Binge

Rob King, who has some experience with local music, made the trek to Denton, Texas for NX35, a music conferette and cultural explosion. I, however, got sick and missed most of it. Rob will tell you the full story of NX35 later this week.

What I did experience was two febrile nights of venue-hopping greatness, a video dump of which I'm providing here.

As committed as we at Farrago's F.M.I. are to the history of things that aren't, parallel realities, and the inexorable blending of fact and fiction, it appears as if the Texas State Board of Education is way ahead of us.
