My Aggregate Lives

This is a tupan.

My name is Larry Levine. I live on a shellfish processing facility in far NW California.  Despite a long involvement with the Interwebs, this is my first stand alone personal website.

This is a platonic visit, o.k.?


  • March 26, 2022 - Music playing has been opening up. This is the week that faces have become the norm. Need more places to stay in the Bay Area.  Back to Balkan Fiesta soon.
  • Sept. 8, 2021 - Momentous near-facsimile migration from Classic Google Sites to WordPress.  And yes, 2021 has been another dud year for festivals and sales.
  • Also in 2020 - Job market opens up. Can't go dancing or jam, but the economy provides daily human contact, right?
  • July 2020 - COVID in full-tilt. Summer festival season is a bust.  But we are stocking-up on power tools and acting as social as possible.
  • June 2019 - TUPANSTIX.COM visited west coast "Balkan Camp".  Direct sales are always my favorite.
  • Late May 2019 - On the crew for Antika Fest, then drove all the way down to San Diego to crew for Balkan Fiesta. Introduced the flamenco folks to the Greek version of "Nais Balamo".


June 10, 2019 intermission whimsy at Revolution Café, SF.  Used to be THE place on Sunday nights to share Balkan music fun with people from all over.  Generally packed and intense. But nooo, we can't do that now.
