Reeddeer: Reedux

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Some of you may remember that an odd quirk of the Laurier Double Reed studios is that we do things together, weird things, fun things. Things like tea and traybogganing and making reindeer (and other things) out of castoff reeds. This year, reeddeer inventor and yearly event organizer (and Most Fabulous Bassoonist) Nathan Van Strien created an entire reeddeer nativity.

Happy Holidays, y’all! One of my new year’s resolutions is to update more.

And Megan made Santa, a sleigh, and four tiny reeddeer.

Hey guys! So I decided to do this thing where I make SUPER FAST comics out of Tweets that pop up when one searches “oboe” on Twitter. Wooooo. They are mostly going to be lame. But there is the possibility of hilarity? In any case, it means I’ll be updating regularly over the holidays, so that is a good thing.

Separation of oboe and state? NEVER.
