Helsinki pre-show

Greetings once more from Helsinki… I’m pleased to announce that the roadcrew and most of the band have safely arrived in Finland. They chowed down on some lunch and I imagine are catching a few precious winks at the moment. I barely finished typing that sentence before our very own Mr. French sauntered into the […]

On the ground in Helsinki

Ah my babies, I’ve landed in Helsinki, and the striking beauty and tranquility of this city has made my travel woes a distant memory. From the moment one arrives in the Helsinki Airport, he or she realizes that this is a unique city like no other. The airport is open, airy, full of natural sunlight–and […]

Armadillo is on the Road!

Greetings my babies and welcome to my first live entry to the official blog from JFK Airport. The day began with my 7:00 AM drive to Baltimore-Washington International Airport–a trek I’ve made so many times now I no longer feel the tremendous anxiety when I hit the road. The morning did have a slight hiccup–the […]

And now for Pinkburst Project Part II….The Auction itself, Boston MA, May 1, 2011. I learned of the Pinkburst Project (and brought it to you first!) in a hotel bar in Buenos Aires–oh gawd, that sounds so internationally sophisticated–for those who don’t know me at all, just know that flying to South America alone for […]

Via Funchal, Sao Paulo Brazil 11/27/10

Hola, Bom Gia and Buenos Dias I am finally back on U.S. soil, and it’s time… once again…. my S.M.F. brothers and sisters, for the literary masturbation chock full of useless information for my enjoyment and yours….that exercise in excessiveness you have come to know as “The Armadillo Road Report.” There were so many amazing […]

El Teatro Flores, Buenos Aires Argentina 11/28/10

Buenos Noches my sick babies— I can barely keep my eyes open but a promise is a promise—the Buenos Aires installment of the Armadillo Road Report.
