The Phactor has been really, really busy, and he hopes his editor notices the low frequency of blogging and understands that all that energy is being directed at finishing his book. In terms of solving the problems that stand between me and the completion of this tome, the Phactor feels like he has been playing a game of whack a mole. Progress is being made, but it seems so slow.
So, here's something to tide you over, something classic, something wonderful, and if you don't know it by now, the Phactor is a huge fan of Sidney Bechet. If you don't know who this is, then you knowledge of American music is sadly deficient, but this will help: le petit fleur. So get yourself a nice old fashioned cocktail, preferably using orange bitters, and enjoy.
