Thomas P.M. Barnett

I always felt the audience sorta tolerated the serious musical parts while I was doing my comedy.
I started blogging a decade ago because I like blogging. Writing's a kind of lonely thing to do, and I liked the idea of demystifying the process because I loved it as a kid and teenager and as somebody who wanted desperately to write.
