But had we ever really left?

The tumblr site *When in Musicology* had a really nice tribute in January, 2013

So, after some positioning and logistics:

I’m delighted to announce that Phil and I are getting the band back together, so to speak.  In the meantime, he has been tenured at Indiana University and published a book; I’ve kept on keepin’ on and become the father of a Phi Beta Kappa, in addition to still being the husband of one.  Somehow this reminds me of the comment of Mike Krukow, former pitcher for the San Francisco Dodgers: “I’m really slow.  I ran a race with my wife when she was seven months pregnant and came in third.”

A lot of people missed us, and we think our blogospheric presence was a good thing in general, so we’re back at it.  I will try not to be a five-trick pony.  Glad to be back.
