Message [re:July 26] You know you really really should tell people you are on that song. You only live once. What don’t you do it?
Me: It’s just a little surreal and even if I did what would it mean? The “cuteness” of it is the same if it’s alone in my head or if I tell a stranger. In fact it would probably be weirder if I tell a stranger.

Message: I’m curious what has led to your posting so frequently and candidly (and entertainingly)

Message [re: July 17] Are you into Sri Chinmoy? Did you study him? Why did you write about him?
Me: I was writing about musicians who were uncomfortable with the situation of how Sri Chinmoy played music before a large audience. I was more interested in their response and hostility. No I never studied Sri Chinmoy.

Message: [re: July 9th] I’ll never ask you about Blue Rodeo don’t worry.

Message: [July 8] Are there any simulation plug-ins you like?

Message: [re: July 1] How does this equate when you have spent 40 years researching and writing a libretto and an opera, pay all the performers (orchestra and singers and conductor with a contract they says that the purpose of the gig is to generate a CD) the going rate, pay the CD company its 16k and some of the performers STILL want a cut? I say, when I turn a profit AFTER the $40k I’ve invested (which doesn’t include ANYTHING for my years of work, btw) we’ll talk!!!!!
Me: It doesn’t equate with that.
