I traded up that Eb sousaphone for a proper BBb one. Just getting the right tone four notes down is worth it, plus now I have the theoretical potential to join a group (lacking the mojo to transpose in real time). I find that the mustache isn't a problem as long as I kind of tuck the edge of the mouthpiece under it.

I had a small shindig for my birthday.
Amber got me a lovely cake from Quebrada, which has Grey enraptured.
Pontification on the BBb Sousaphone. "See, this is my new sousaphone. Now a lot of people will confuse a tuba and a sousaphone. And... they're pretty much right."
Amber says she likes this photo of me, it's how she often sees me...
