Y'know, this may seem strange but, any of you who read this, I feel like we're pals. So please do go ahead and friend me on FB, if you'd like. Because sometimes it feels like it's all folks I don't know and, ideally, it can actually be a good way to get to know people. Yes? No? Maybe?
I am inspired to say so because once, back when I didn't really understand how Facebook worked, I went ahead and "friended" a couple of strangers just because they were the only other folks who'd listed "The Pastels" as a musical favorite, and I sorta thought that's what one was supposed to do. Anyway, this was a few years ago now, but the other night, at the estimable Clean show at the Bell House, one of these gents approached me on the strength of our musical FB friendship, and he was utterly nifty in reality, and now I have a new sorta-friend, and none of this would have been possible without the good works of messrs Zuckerberg and Moskovitz. And in short I have a new appreciation for its benign capabiities, connectivity-wise.
And besides, I'd like to know you!
