The first verse went something like:
"Tell me I'm your favorite thing
You can tell me anything
I wouldn't mind
Dream about you every night
Something tells me that's not right
I wouldn't mind, I wouldn't mind
Not at all..."
One of my favourite things about this here blogging thing is waking up to posts and comments not just from fellow Canucks (you know who you are), but from all over the world.
Greg checks in from China as he travels back and forth from Indiana to Beijing putting together a shoot for Discovery Channel; Good Dog, Riddley, and English Dave take a break from their work on a variety of TV/DVD projects in the U.K. to poke their heads in, sometimes joined by Lee and Pynchon (I know there are more of you but these boys leave comments and therefore identify themselves); Crashdummie/Ruby and Hart have nothing to do with this silly entertainment business but still make regular stops from Sweden.
Meanwhile Scott and Emily and Diva and Cunningham and Portnoy and Martell are swimming with sharks in Los Angeles but always make time for Uninflected Images; LoveStrong and Agnax and Savage Art peek in from east coast of the U.S. (not sure where exactly since Sitemeter and Statcounter give each two different locations)...Unk and Mystery Man could be anywhere and everywhere, sometimes I think they actually are....and whenever I am so fortunate to get a shout out link from one of the 'real bloggers' (you know who you are) - the visits and comments can come from darn near anywhere...in the world.
I find that fascinating.
This exposure to different lifestyles, viewpoints, attitudes, perspectives, and opinions outside of one's own small life experience...it's not only fascinating, it's entertaining and enlightening. I also find it remarkable that a little experiment in self-motivation that began just 6 months ago has resulted in over 2100 profile views and nearly 10,000 visits. Amazing actually.
That said, I wanted to take this opportunity to put out the question of whether there are some topics or areas of interest that readers might want to hear more about...otherwise I'll just stay the course.
So a tip of the hat but no wag of the finger - thanks for giving me the impetus to share everything from tales from the tv trenches to music I enjoy, like Bob Mould and Sugar, and everything inbetween. It's been a fun hobby to date.

p.s. a special shout out to Oklahoma's MovieQuill and the U.K.'s lovely Optimistic Reader (though she don't show up on Technorati, same as a lot of UK links...odd) who were two of the first to link me up...
