Snippets of music are varied and excellent-- and are pulled directly from Amazon. All of the data is... so expect limited albums on the sidebar for older groups, with odd dates associated (which tend to reflect issue date of CD release). Still, a fabulous resource. I so so so so so so so so SO VERY wish they could use the same visualization engine as the Visual Thesaurus. Delving into Six Degrees of Music would be a wonderfulous thing :)
Would you buy this car? (Thanks, mactavish!)
Thanks for all the feedback on the book excerpt :) I haven't responded to much, but I appreciate it more than you can know. I've gotten most of chapters 0-3 organized and partially fleshed-out already. It's going to be a much longer work than I'd originally thought. I'll post more as it develops. I can't wait to start the illustrations :) I may begin work on those while visiting the UK.
I never posted about horseofshadows's apple pie. Dammit! It was really good :)
Oh, and I never did say thank you for all the wonderful holiday cards. I really did enjoy them... I went through them again today before taking them down. I'll try to post a photo soon. Although I grasp it on an intellectual level, I am still always made giddy by evidence that you folks really exist :)
Still sick from the Florida plague. Still not happy about it, but coping as best I can. I've never been sick for more than a couple days in a row. Suprisingly, I'm getting a lot done at work despite the black death... quite a bit at home, too.
