Cream rises to the top

One of the most enjoyable aspects of this self-indulgent experiment is that from time to time, strangers show up in the comment section and post comments I’d wished I’d written.

The following comment was left by Vincent, in reference to my recent post on Jill Sobule:

Clifford,


Jill is an amazing songwriter. Luckily, I did get to contribute to her next CD. A good thing. I was able to hear what she has recorded so far. The CD won't be out until January, but she wanted help on picking what songs will be on the CD. Jill recorded 17 songs but only needs 10, pity they are all amazing. It is her best CD; a funny and heartbreaking trip through her last few years in Hollywood, away from her beloved Brooklyn.


Jill has been previewing some of the songs at her website www.jillsobule.com or www.jillsnextrecord.com.


Anyone who doesn’t know about Jill's work may want to check out my music blog, "Strange Light" for "10 Other Songs by Jill Sobule That You Must Hear";

The CD will be a great success. Sure, not as big as Katy Perry, but there just aren't THAT many smart people in the world like you, Clifford.

Thanks so much for the info, Vincent, and welcome!

P.S. That “smart” comment cracked me up. The truth usually does (:

That is cool. You never know who's reading.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
