No, I have no shame...Now go visit already! :)

To my wonderful readers:
I do hope you get the chance to hop on over to my new project, Nomad's Playlist. Today you can read the second installment of "This Week's Picks," find out how to submit your own guest review, and view a calendar of world music events happening in London.

Nomad's Playlist is my new baby, and I'm afraid it's not getting the attention it needs, so I am not ashamed to push it. :) I am not only looking for a fan base, but healthy critics. I want to know what you think, what could be better, what you like to see, what should be changed, etc.

Thanks and I hope to see you over on the new blog!

Nomad's Playlist- because I don't have enough to do

Because I have no life, I've started a new blog project. It's called Nomad's Playlist and I would love it if you could take a few moments to check it out.

It's a world music blog, where I and hopefully other writers review world music tracks, post upcoming concerts in the London area and post world music news.

Please check it out and tell me what you think. :)

Thank you "R." I cannot get that 20 minutes of my life back.

I got a wonderful comment on my last post this afternoon:

Hi,
I just wanted to say how much I loved your blog? Are you still writing the blog or have you finished?
Also, I love SJF! SJF is awesome. Are you going to write more about him?
R

Funnily enough, SJF has recently discovered my blog. Rather than be upset, the fact that he has an internet presence has only fueled his already gigantic ego, claiming that I should in fact write more about him.

So this afternoon, when I saw this comment, I naturally assumed it was him being funny. I called him up and said, "Funny blog comment. You're so ridiculously vain." He claimed to have no idea what I was talking about, or rather what I was talking about after mentioning the blog comment (he knows he's vain).  Assuming he was just playing dumb, I wasn't having any of it. Finally, I read the comment to him and he said "NO WAY! Let me see!"

It then took roughly ten minutes to explain what it means to type a website address into a URL bar. (I forgot how pathetically computer illiterate he is and realized he was not capable of leaving a comment)
"Who wrote that?"
"I don't know, 'R'?"
"There's got to be some way to find out! I want to meet this brilliant person!"

So, thank you "R" for your wonderful comment, but know that I then had to spend 20 minutes listening to SJF tell me what a legend he is, that there should really be more stories about him and my "fans were calling." Thank you.
