Holy Cow! We put on a show, and it was nothing less than sensational. We’re going to tell you all about it and post photos and such, but before we do, we need to extend sincere thanks to some fantastic people and sponsors who helped us bring Listen To Your Mother North Jersey to us.

These first-year sponsors are of particular note because they had no idea how what a triumph our inaugural event would be. They wanted to help us achieve our mission to give motherhood a microphone, and they absolutely did just that. We are grateful for their support. If you happen to be in the market for any of their services or products, we hope you’ll let them know that you appreciated their participation in Listen To Your Mother North Jersey 2014.

Meet the Cast: Roger Ian Rosen

May 7, 2014

ROGER IAN ROSEN writes so that his husband might ever get to experience silence.  His circuitous career has made him, at various times, a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king.  He finds himself constantly slack-jawed that young people have no idea who Billie Holiday is and react to the mention of her name with a dismissive, “Who’s he?  That’s before my time,” as if she were topping the charts during his childhood.  He is perplexed by a generation that holds the entirety of human knowledge literally in the palm of their hand yet seems to lack the curiosity to reach beyond their own drunken selfie.  He is horrified that he can now convincingly shake his head at “young people.” Roger is working towards becoming the first American in a generation to land a book deal without having first appeared on a reality show.  Although truth be told, he’s not all […]
