Show biz. Artists are in show biz. We create our work. Then we show it. So..."Knock 'em naked" as Wayne Newton's Vegas crew would say as he stepped on stage.

I like showbiz. I've not done a count but looking over a volume of past work I see it coming up time after time. It's probably my subliminal way of being a performer...easier in my art work than in actually doing. (From 1st grade thru middle age, being simply asked to stand and give my name held terrors.)

Now, as I assume the banner of "ccot" or "codger", it doesn't matter if I stumble or not. If I blush (which I still do occasionally) I can joke about it.
