Last night, about 75 FOTMs collected on the patio of Great Lakes Brewery on a warm and clear August night for TMLX8. We actually filled the patio fairly quickly and many were relegated to the lawn and sides. It wasn't just TMLX8, but it was also the recording of our

We held a lowkey #TMLX7 at Marie Curtis Park last night and it was awesome seeing everybody. We enjoyed good conversation and sneaky beverages, checking in with one another and spreading peace and love. Here are some pics. I can't wait for #TMLX8 on August 27. That's the Pandemic Friday
Thanks to all who came out to #TMLX6 tonight at Marie Curtis Park. Stu Stone set the over/under at 19.5 and we were over! I didn't want 2020 to go by without a TMLX, so this really hit the spot. I can't wait for TMLX7 in 2021 when
When the pandemic was declared, plans for a big TMLX6 dissipated into the abyss. Here I was trying to disrupt things and COVID-19 said "hold my beer". I'll be damned if I'm going to let the summer of 2020 end without hosting TMLX6. I'm always telling my kids "safety first"

Holy crap, it's September 17! I won't ask where the time went, because I know exactly where it went, but time does seem to be flying these days. TMLX4 is Thursday, so I recorded a quick 3:35 promo for Patrons. Patrons, if you don't know, are the kind souls

Last night #TMLX2 went off without a hitch! Well, there was one wrinkle when Splash'N Boots got held up in Newfoundland where they're recording at Alan Doyle's house, but everything else worked out perfectly, including the weather. The Royal Pains were awesome once more. Seriously, you should hire this band.
