Trey’s critically acclaimed solo show, A Lesson in Proper Bow-Fluffing Technique (Storey Productions/Moving Arts) earned a 2005 Ovation nomination for Best Solo Performance. Set at the height of the holiday season, the piece is a multi-character comedy based on Trey's real-life day job in a department store. Critics have described the show as "a razor sharp portrait...as well written as it is performed" (Los Angeles Times) and "surprisingly poignant" (LA Weekly). Trey is currently preparing for holiday performances and touring in Southern California and beyond. For booking information and to learn more about the show go here.

Human Sexual Response played a 30-year reunion concert at House of Blues in Boston on November 10 and I WAS THERE! What do you mean you've never heard of Human Sexual Response???? This amazing Boston-based post-punk septet (septet as in seven members, four of them vocalists!!!) produced two amazing albums before their break-up. Their most popular songs were Jackie Onassis and Land of the Glass Pinecones. Here's another one of my favorites, Andy Fell. I never got to see them play live in their heyday, so this was a very special concert indeed. If you truly love a band...stay in love! You'll be rewarded (though it may take 30 years).
One of the many pleasures of San Franciso's Pier 39, which I visited with my family in 2008, is the small population of sea lions that hang around, barking, fighting, snoozing, cavorting, generally stinking up the place to the delight of ogling tourists.
Meanwhile, at LegoLand in Southern California....
the Lego version of the same scene, sea lions and all. Those are coins you see at the bottom of the "bay." I must admit, I prefer the Lego version of Pier 39...it's much cleaner and less crowded with tourists. And I'd finally get a table at that little cafe with the blue awning! (Though the coffee would probably taste like plastic.)
treynichols.net has been a cyberbun in the oven for well over a year now and I spent most of that time fretting and tinkering ad nauseum, adding pages, deleting pages, rearranging text, and generally doing what people of a certain age refer to as "farting around." though no actual farts were emitted. (well maybe a couple.) the site still has a ways to go and will be updated with more stuff as it becomes available. i aim to keep it fresh and fun, with occasional surprises along the way. your feedback is always welcome!
