As I sit here, snuggled up in my polar fleece blanket against the growing chill, I am reminded that the end of comfortable gallery cruising season is almost here. For those intrepid crawlers like Jeriah and myself, this doesn’t mean the end of going out, no no, to us it just means thicker socks and heavier coats. But for many, the onset of cold fall and impending winter slows their gallery crawl motivation. SO my dear friends out there in TV land, get your ass out there before it starts to snow, ‘cus there is still lots of good shit going on!
