As we mentioned, we’re very happy to be 2017 Parsec Awards finalists. We also mentioned how happy we were to be lumped in with the other really impressive shows in the category. So here is a conversion of my reviews of them from Twitter. Basically, you’re observing in real-time my realization of all our inadequacies in the face of their talents.
Thanks to a few different folks for nominating us some months ago and thanks to the Parsec people for putting us in a group with these other fine shows. We’ll let you know how it goes sometime in November 🙂
