Oh boy o boy! DL’ing right now! Yay again!

So good. I think this is such an epic and wonderful episode. Looking forward to braaaaaains braaaaaaains

Love it!

Vic’s song (the last) is actually “Flowers (Eurydice’s Song)” and it’s brilliant– great choice; the album is “Hadestown,” and it’s very cool and worthy.

Yes, A great & epic episode. Superb tunes, made all the more interesting by all the engaging intros. And a solo from Isabella, getting closer to out & under from Dad’s ‘rubbish’ decrees every day! 🙂 Lots of fun, thanks all, awesomeness all around.

Jeremy – thanks for letting me know that. I’ve made the change in the listing and posterity sends you gratitude!

So … who got the reference in my ‘the year we made contrast’ thing?


I did! It took me a little bit to remember where i knew the reference from, but i got it.

i didn’t catch that, but i did get james’s reference to me! that is certainly the case for me and my inbox, although, ironically, i named my blog what i did because at the time i was convinced my emails were getting lost in someone else’s inbox!

hey tim, as long as we’re noting corrections, in the blog listing on the side, you have nat’s blog as another “aged” hipster, when it’s actually another “aging” hipster. a small–but critical–distinction!

LOL, marcy. I had not even noticed that. I feel rather “aged”today, as I took my son’s dog for a run in the park, my knee is already swelling. ARGH.

And I have been a lazy, lazy blogger all summer.

I obviously got it from the URL! I’ve changed it now. 🙂

… and whilst we all are so hypercorrect: “Sexyloser” is meant to be all one word, not two. Then again who gives a damn as I don’t find the time to work on the site anyway ….

i recently got an email from someone who addressed it to “lost in your box,” which i thought was pretty funny.

Late on this, but congratulations on a great job all (and to Chris for taking over the knobs). I miss the CP, and this was a great excuse to drop back in.
