January 9, 2008

One of the reasons why I’m glad I have this blog is because I find out things I wouldn’t if I didn’t have this blog.

Just looked at my messages and I got one from, of all people, Nelson Slater–whose album Wild Angel I once discussed in a long-ago Lou Reed interview here. Don’t think Nelson liked its cover, but I’m happy to show it whenever I can. Nelson is making music today and you can find out more by checking out his MySpace page here. Please do.

Secondly, I got this message:

Dear Dave DiMartino

Your fond reference to Fête Foraine by the Apartments came to me through Google. And so did this, which seems to be destiny.

I think she read this.

Anyway, thank you Sophie, wherever you are. You made my week.
