AccNoir 02-02-2011, Virtuous Improvisation - Rowan plunders the CFRO music library

Bruce's family were all out with the flu. Rowan said we didn't want to have "Accordion Noauurghheh!" to which Bruce agreed. We're doing much better now. Feel free to check out his (Bruce's) new blog to check up on him, or if you're reading this there, hi!)

And for the cover image? Rowan riding the Sky-Train! (If you've never been to Vancouver, we also have a "Sea-Bus.") I think I used this image before, but it's so nice. Memorializes Rowan's beard before he shaved it for charity too.
