Losing My Identity Rocks!

Over the past few days I've been intentionally slipping on maintaining my anonymity. It all started with my Movember fundraising efforts. Then I signed up for the evil facebook using my real name to promote that event to my friends. So, after about a year of actively hiding my name from everybody, it is now pretty findable for anyone who cares to know it. Since I really like my little squinty-eyed alter-ego, I have every intention of continuing to publish this blog as RANTWICK and to keep pictures of my ugly mug off the Internet as much as possible.

One nice thing about loosening up a bit is that I can now engage in shameless self promotion of new kinds! I play and sing in an Acoustic Guitar Duo called Dog's Breakfast here in London Ontario:


I am the dog on the left. We're playing at the London Music Club on Friday (the 13th!) night. The half-dozen or so gigs we've had so far have been a blast, so if you want to come have a beer (or ten) and a listen, click here for more details. It would be super fun to meet one of my local readers in person, unless of course you feel compelled to inform me that the music sucks. In that case please just slip on out of there and leave me alone in my musical fantasy world.

Yer Pal,

R A N T W I C K

Congrats for coming out of the closet. Well sort of.

Rantwick said...

Keri - Yeah, I keep saying that about Fla. and Texas... perhaps some day! Thanks very very much for your Monation!

360 - Well thank you. It is kind of liberating.

You will always be "dear Rantwick" to me.

Marrock said...

Your anonymity is safe with me, I don't care who you are. ;)

The less I know the less I have to lie about in court.

Who's Rantwick? Sounds a lot like "Where's Waldo" to me. "Dear Rantwick" sounds like an advice column. Maybe it ought to be just plain "Rantwick." There IS only one, after all.

I love the photo. Reminds me of home. We have a mangy hound that gets on top of the table too. Keep on singin' (or howlin').

Doohickie said...

I'm with Marrock.... I don't really care who you are. In fact, I would feel much more comfortable with the whole situation if the Dog's Breakfast picture looked more like this.

Rollz said...

Can I get my money back? I liked rantwick better than you.

I wish I could come to see you play I can't tonight but keep us posted for future dates as I want to go.

Rantwick said...

ChipSeal - that's cool with me.

Marrock - you're my kind of dude.

Steve - Plain Rantwick works fine, I agree.

Big Oak - It starts with singing, with howling by the end.

Doohickie - I strongly considered doing that myself. Nice!

Rollz - I'll refund every penny, and continue to publicize gigs as requested, thanks for wanting to come out!

How about, "Yo! 'Twick!"

Rantwick said...

Cafiend - um, no.

cafiend said...

No offense. I fracture syllabication, such as with the actor, Huge Ackman.

Rantwick said...

You couldn't give offense around here if you tried. Keep up the fracturification.
