You’re probably wondering why I was scrambling for a plane ticket to Boston. You’re probably wondering what this top-secret gig of excellence is. Allow me to explain.
On Wednesday I was contacted by the Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard University for a really super opportunity to perform at a unique event. The organizers were cautious to commit to any details immediately because they’ve been planning this event very carefully for months, and my potential inclusion was something very last-minute and had to get the OK from all the different organizing bodies involved. As such, I had to be sort of vague about it in the event that I was excluded.
I got another email from the HCH this morning, and now I can tell you what I’ve been waiting to tell you since Wednesday:
Stephen Fry is being honored by the Harvard Secular Society this Tuesday, and I’m completely ecstatic out of my skull to report that I have been invited to perform my song to him in the course of the event.

The event is sold out, unfortunately. However, I’m told that some of it will be filmed and posted online, so I will make a big ruckus when that happens.
I posted the song to my YouTube channel about a week ago, and now these wheels are in motion. The internet is a strange and wonderful place.
GUYS I’M FLYING TO HARVARD
GUYS I GET TO SING MY SONG TO STEPHEN FRY
