Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers! Students are moving into the dorms at the University of Pittsburgh and we continue to have lovely weather here in The ‘Burgh. Today there will be a mix of clouds and sunshine with a high around 85, perfect weather for a stroll into Oakland to Schenley Plaza to see what’s going on around the Pitt campus. Every time I’m around campus, I still feel the good vibrations of my own years at Pitt as an undergrad (1999-2003) and as a grad student and a teaching assistant (2003-2006).
I think the word I’m looking for is nostalgia. But I digress…
Yes, September will be here next week. And I’ll be back on my regular beat in Bloomfield (Little Italy). What are the coming attractions for September 2016? My little girlie magazine is pretty stable now. All of the pieces are pretty much in place. What you see is what you get. So, the September 2016 edition of The Gazette will look like the most recent past editions of The Gazette. September’s edition will have blog posts about blogging, karaoke at Sonny’s Tavern the first Sunday night of next month, articles and commentaries and interviews and sexy stories rotated from the archives to the front page, Naked News videos about movies and television and topless models from Egotastic All Stars. It seems like a winning game plan to me. Of course, I’ll try to spice things up a little with blog posts on things that catch my interest and which I hope will interest you, too. And I’ll publish the new erotic flash fiction story The First Love by Nicci Haydon. I’ve published several of Nicci’s stories. She’s a talented writer. You don’t want to miss her newest erotic flash fiction.
That’s it. In eight days it’s back to Little Italy, hanging out at Armand’s and Sonny’s Tavern while looking for inspiration in a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Hail to Pitt!
