    It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year – Time For The Annual New Bedford Whaling Museum Moby-Dick-A-Thon

    This year’s 15th Anniversary Moby-Dick-A-Thon at the New Bedford Whaling Museum promises to be bigger, geek-ier, international-ier, and internet-ier than ever.

    With a buffet dinner, free public lectures, trivia contests, special exhibits, live internet (or “web”) streaming, international participants, and it’s very own twitter hash tag (#mdm15) – I expect that this will easily be the premiere mid-Winter literary event of down town New Bedford for all of 2011.

    In fact, we’re so excited at WAWD, that we’ve decided to relaunch the site (which appears to have fallen into a state of disrepair due to months of neglect; not unlike an antique tube amplifier or Italian motorcycle. It’s not that we don’t want your comments, it’s just that our internet machine apparently no longer accepts them).

    Over the course of what’s left of the week leading up to the event, we might update the site again, or re-publish some classic articles from the vault.

    And if you’re planning a trip, keep in mind that our Travelog (An Afternoon In Downtown New Bedford, Mass. – “Where Parking Is Free On The Weekends”) is a invaluable today as it was when it was published nearly two years ago. BUT: with one major exception – downtown NB has a shiny new hotel! And we’ve secured adjoining Harbor View Suites at the Fairfield Inn & Suites.

    That’s right…After party! (Keep an eye on Twitter)

    We’ll be reading at 9 and 910 PM this year, which, according to this web sheet, should put us around chapter 43. This looks like payback for getting to read “The Whiteness of the Whale” last year.

    Be forewarned now: In a couple more glasses of wine, I might try to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress, and it’s very possible that WAWD will go the way of the Pequod.
