Hello Internet! First of all, I'd like to sincerely thank "rap music" for your comments because ain't no one else doing it. Second of all, I'd like to prove that I still know how to type, because productivity has been at a recent low in ye olde write-game. Third, I guess I didn't try very hard to login to my original Photobucket account last time, as I got it on the 3rd guess this time. The "funkyd15" account is back, so most of the pictures are now active again on this blog! And likely elsewhere on the web(bie...weeeebie).
Eighteenth, you, my loyal 1.025 readers (the 1 assumes that rap music is still out there, pretty low if not), may be wondering about the future of this little spot on the grand internetzzzz as it nears its 6th birthday. Well, that's a good question. Obviously (???) writing on here is easier to do than writing up in the big leagues of donewaiting.com, so maybe I can use this again to "practice up" for the big stuff. That reminds me, I'm currently racked with doubt about whether I'm even going to write an Albums of the Year post for that site this year. I've been so disorganized this year (especially the 2nd half of the year) that it's hard to sort through things and order them arbitrarily, much less write some beautiful prose about said things. As usual, encouragement in the way of comments always helps. Feel free to tell me your favorite albums of the year, and maybe I'll steal them. HAHAHA!
Anyhoo, happy belated 30th to me, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

As alluded to here for the last 7 months, my dad and I drove to Mansfield on September 27th to see Koko Taylor, "The Queen of the Blues," live in concert. It was the day before her 80th birthday, but she still sang and danced up a storm for a lengthy set. I wish I had written up my full recollection of the show when I had it. Unfortunately, my dad called me this morning to tell me that news of Koko's death was on the front page of the Dispatch. I'm glad I got to see her live twice before she passed. Rest in peace, Queen Koko.
