    Hi all, once again, for the 14th time, NYC here in the house! I'm in Manhattan- and in many prior years it's been great to see some of the other NYC-area fawm folks at an in-person gathering, too. Who else here is from NYC, or nearby? 😀

  • @erikdidriksen  Jan 2019

    I'm in a New York state of mind.

  • @swampjaw  Jan 2019

  • @mikeskliar  Jan 2019

    great to see some of the New York State & NYC fawm people checkin' in! 😀

  • @chucknamaste Jan 2019

    I’m in Brooklyn!

  • @mikeskliar  Jan 2019

    hi again to all the new yorkers, near and not quite as near!

    Hopefully, (especially if folks get really interested in it) we can have an in -person gathering near the end of FAWM, perhaps? (always love those fawm gatherings that happen in feb, as opposed to after its over, but, as they say, its all good 😀 )

  • @chrishope Jan 2019

    in spirit

  • @pugetive  Jan 2019

    Have been lame about FAWM the last two years and might be lame about it this year, but I'm still around in BK! I got to attend the gathering three years ago and would love to attend another...

  • @kenficara  Jan 2019

    Hello all. I'll be back again this year.

  • @defaultdave  Feb 2019

    NYC! Helping produce a Vaudeville show early in February, so hoping to get freed up after.

    BTW if anyone needs a welcoming open mic to perform FAWM songs, would suggest Paddy Reily's on Wednesday nights, starts at 7:30, ends when the list does.

  • @dorit Feb 2019

    New Yorker here. Gonna be a busy February but will try to write a few.

  • @theseventwenty Feb 2019

  • @raygungirls Feb 2019

    Queens New Yorker here.... but living upstate, in the Hudson area for the past 5 years. I see quite a lot of Upstaters this year!

  • @sayda Feb 2019

  • @erelpi10 Feb 2019

    hello neighbors -- i'm in the nyc area

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2019

    I'm thinking maybe of hosting another NYC FAWM gathering- possibly sometime either Saturday Feb 23 or Sunday Feb 24th--- any thoughts as to if you could attend? (upper west side of manhattan) @erikdidriksen @erelpi10 @wr3n @raygungirls @sueawesome @kenficara @angelinapowersuit @manysounds @theseventwenty @dorit @defaultdave @pugetive @chucknamaste @quillwraith @swampjaw @sunnymae @matt42 (and anyone else i left out!)

  • @wr3n  Feb 2019

    Unfortunately that's crunch time for me- I'll be loading in to a theatre around then

  • @sunnymae  Feb 2019

    Post FAWM better 4 me. If I'm falling behind I'll be in crunch time to get some more material out there. I'm looking forward to Gathering whenever it happens though and thank you so much for offering to host as always Mike. 😮)

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2019

    @wr3n -thanks for responding, I understand and I'll keep you in the loop. Any time in Feb that does work better for you , btw? (feel free to pvt me/email, whatever, etc if that's easier) (and to everyone- it is alot fun if we can make some date in Feb work, as that way the stuff we write right there in person becomes part of the whole FAWM-universe... (somewhere there are some funny songs/videos out there of prior feb gatherings)

  • @wr3n  Feb 2019

    @mikeskliar Honestly it's more likely than not any schedule I get will be changed in the coming weeks, so don't worry about it for planning! I'll make it if I can, but that'll be mostly luck. 😝

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2019

    @wr3n ok thanks!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2019

    @sunnymae - that's the beauty of the gathering in feb- you'll end up leaving with perhaps a few more songs then you came with! no worries either way, and hopefully we'll get it together in feb or march or sometime!

  • @pixeltender Feb 2019

    astoria! recovering from the flu, already missed a big chunk of the month. trying to make up for lost time

  • @kenficara  Feb 2019

    @mikeskliar The only time I could do that weekend is Saturday afternoon or early evening.

  • @defaultdave  Feb 2019

    23rd my blues band is playing American Trash. Could do Saturday earlier, or Sunday.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 2019

    ok-- let's see if anyone else responds.. very very tentatively, perhaps saturday afternoon the 23rd? but lets see if anyone else jumps in..

  • @swampjaw  Feb 2019

    Saturday the 23rd is possible.

  • @pugetive  Feb 2019

    I haven't even started yet! But I'm taking a staycation the week leading up to the 23rd/24th so that weekend's fine by me.

  • @eargoggle  Feb 2019


  • @mikeskliar  Feb 16

    So--- thinking of hosting another NYC FAWM gathering- Saturday afternoon Feb 23 --- any thoughts as to if you could attend? (upper west side of manhattan) @erikdidriksen @erelpi10 @wr3n @raygungirls @sueawesome @kenficara @angelinapowersuit @manysounds @theseventwenty @dorit @defaultdave @pugetive @chucknamaste @quillwraith @swampjaw @sunnymae @matt42 @swampjaw (and anyone else i left out!) @eargoggle @pugetive @pixeltender

  • @kenficara  Feb 16

    I won't be here next weekend @mikeskliar.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 16

    (and anyone else i left out?!)

  • @sueawesome  Feb 16

    I definitely can’t do February, not sure about March at the moment

    my email is linked in my bio so stick me on a list (since fawm is ghost town after March 5th) if there’s ever anything in late spring or summer, I most likely could/would/will/have to. let me know of any and all bc you never know


  • @pugetive  Feb 17

    @mikeskliar I wasn't able to give proper attention to FAWM this year, alas, so my planned "FAWMcation" this week has morphed into an out-of-town trip. Sorry, I can't make it but NEXT YEAR DAMNIT!

  • @wr3n  Feb 17

    @mikeskliar I'll find out yet- I have a event in chinatown from 1pm to about 4, but I might be able to get away earlier

  • @corinnecurcio Feb 17

    Hi Mike - I keep saying I'll get there again some time. Saturday would be better - I gotta watch my girl Gaga at the Oscars on Sunday!

  • @quillwraith  Feb 17

    Saturday afternoon Feb 23, would be just about perfect (I get out of work near there at 2:30, whereas any other day it's a long way from where I am). I'd definitely attend.

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 18

    thanks everyone -- I'll keep you posted!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 20

    Trying to get a headcount and see who is in —-//a whole bunch of people I haven’t heard one way or the other – hello out there ?

  • @raygungirls Feb 20

    Sorry, but due to health, and job and kids, I can't make the two hour drive into Manhattan. Would love to meet y'all in person some day though!

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 21

    Will be making a decision re:Saturday tonight (thurs night) - seems like not a great date for alot of folks, (everyone's busy all the time, occupational hazard of living here, i guess! no worries!) .. but if anyone didn't weigh in on being able to come or not and wants to, it'd be helpful....

  • @mikeskliar  Feb 22

    and..we'll have to do it another time. For one thing, just too many people who can't make it this Saturday.. (and it wasn't a great day for me, to be honest). So... let's try to get together sometime in March or April...

  • @gummunq Mar 2

    Hihi from Brooklyn! Hope to come to a FAWM over party (@mikeskliar). I could also possibly host a tiny gathering in my apt in Crown Heights!

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 2

    OK, second try at a possible date for a NYC FAWM after-party- Saturday (either afternoon and/or evening) March 9th --- any thoughts as to if you could attend? (upper west side of manhattan) @erikdidriksen @erelpi10 @wr3n @raygungirls @sueawesome @kenficara @angelinapowersuit @manysounds @theseventwenty @dorit @defaultdave @pugetive @chucknamaste @quillwraith @swampjaw @sunnymae @matt42 @swampjaw (and anyone else i left out!) @eargoggle @pugetive @pixeltender @gummunq

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 2

    and ps (those folks I inadvertently left out of the message above) -OK, second try at a possible date for a NYC FAWM after-party- Saturday (either afternoon and/or evening) March 9th --- any thoughts as to if you could attend? (upper west side of manhattan) @sunnymae @corinnecurcio

  • @gummunq Mar 3

    I’d be in!

  • @sunnymae  Mar 3

    I think that would work for me!

  • @sueawesome  Mar 3

    @mikeskliar i was sick most of feb, still not 100, I have to play catch-up all March with life stuff. I won’t be able to come 😞
    keep me on a list for future stuff though!
    I hope it’s a blast

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 6

    UPDATE on the NYC gathering- this weekend (march 9-10) also problematic for several (and turns out not a great weekend for me)...
    Let's think about sometime during one of the following weekends (maybe a sat late afternoon into sat evening?)
    March 23rd, 30th, or April 6th.. if possible, let me know which works or doesn't work of those three weekends, etc. thanks! @erikdidriksen @erelpi10 @wr3n @raygungirls @sueawesome @kenficara @angelinapowersuit @manysounds @theseventwenty @dorit @defaultdave @pugetive @chucknamaste @quillwraith @swampjaw @sunnymae @matt42 @swampjaw (and anyone else i left out!) @eargoggle @pugetive @pixeltender @gummunq @sunnymae @corinnecurcio
    we’ll get this together sooner or later!


  • @the3queens  Mar 6

    NYers - You're not too far from Delaware. Consider our weekend East Coast FAWMstock getaway last weekend in July.

  • @quillwraith  Mar 8

    March 23rd would be difficult but I think I can make it. March 30th or April 6th should be fine.

  • @sunnymae  Mar 9

    April 6 😀

  • @mikeskliar  Mar 10

    April 6th actually works best for me as well!

  • @gummunq Mar 18

    I think I can do apr 6 too!

  • @mikeskliar  Apr 5

    not sure who is still here, but just to let everyone know, looks like this coming april 6th I'll be busy.... maybe in later spring or summer, perhaps? (and yeah, its possible i might be able to do that FAWMstock thing at the end of July down in...wherever it is...

  • @sunnymae  Apr 5

    Thanks Mike. We'll make it happen. Yes FAWMSTOCK sounds like a lot of fun doesn't it?

  • @chrishope Apr 5

    fawmstock... if i can come from
