Oh, it is.  At least a significant segment of that community is 
pretty intensely obsessed with the minutiae and geekery of it all. 
But there are also tons of people out there who just want to enjoy

of same.

I have benefited greatly from the presence of my work on archive.org,

links to all of my performances that are available online.
