Yes, I felt it was due. Sometimes, (and this may just be me being all girly-like) I just need to update the look of this thing to help in writing- inspiration.
The new banner photo (yes, it’s me) is part of the Austin Swing Syndicate’s “Sweethearts of the Syndicate” pin-up calendar. It is a fundraising effort to get the Austin Swing Syndicate a new sound system for the Fed so our weekly dances can be extra awesome sound-wise. Right now, most of our DJ’d music sounds a little fuzzy in the mid-range. And the ballroom’s acoustics certainly don’t help. So it would be great to have a new system to help make up for that.
Laura Glaess (Ms. December) did the awesome photoshopping of the original shots.
If you’re coming to Austin for Lone Star Championships and want to pick one up, I do believe they’ll be available for sale 🙂
Did I mention the calendar is also filled with lots of useful Lindy Hop information for the year? I mean things like local, regional, national and international events, birthdays and other dates of historical record. This thing is sweet.
