We Made It Through To Two
It is two years to the day since I opened my Blogger account with this little toe dip into the choppy wwwaters of the interweb. Two years! Sheesh! I'm not sure where that went exactly....except in a squall of fabulous shared music, camaraderie, brickbats, bon mots, quips, drinks, gibberish, gibes, brouhaha and the odd heartfelt moment, obviously.
As I've written here before, I do fear there is serious Disappearing Up Own Arse potential with these celebratory type posts, and to be honest with you, they're not really my thing - I'm much more of a not much happening of a Wednesday kinda guy - so if it's OK with you I'll just say a simple thank you at this point to you lovely regular commenters and inspiring fellow bloggers, silent stalkers and occasional visitors alike; you genuinely make this enterprise worthwhile - and in the inimitable words of the fat lady from the end of the Morecambe & Wise Show, "I love you all!"
What to play?
The brilliant, warm, passionate, funny and occasionally cracked persons who knock up the blogs listed on the right have helped me discover so many wonderful records in the last two years that it seems deeply unfair to single out just one - but I have, mostly because 1) it's the one I have played most 2) it's the one the whole house likes most 3) it's from Ally, who I think we all love very much and 4) it kind of fits.
