I got a “Contact Me” message last night and it wasn’t one of the 3 or 4 regular readers. Email is always good!

Turns out the guy was trying to track down the live version of “Cinnamon” by the Long Winters (OK, just John Roderick), as heard on KEXP last week, and my site helped him pinpoint where to look in the streaming archives. It’s always good to hear from people who share my good taste in music. Behold the power of Google, or something.

Then I noticed it was Jerry “Tycho” Holkins from over at Penny Arcade! Coolio! An honest-to-internets webcomic superstar! Probably too much to think that he’ll be a regular reader of my rants and posts, but, still.

So the weepy, previous association I had made with the Long Winters can now be replaced with a new, decidedly non-weepy association. Which means I still get to listen to them. Yay, me!

Tycho and his partner, Mike “Gabe” Krahulik also do good work under the Child’s Play banner. Feel free to donate to help out the kids.
