communiqué #12: salutations

A special thanks to Any Major Dude With Half A Heart for mentioning SibLINGSHOT ON THE BLEACHERS alongside several other sites in his Music For Bloggers: Vol. 7 post last week. It was gratifying on diving back into the blogging pool after my short break to find this site singled out for approval.

While I'm at it, I would also like to belatedly thank Fusion 45 for his extremely kind words of support in his Random Notes Of Import much earlier in the month. MJ@F45 has recently embarked on a new career at WNEW while continuing to serve up great music more frequently than is seemly on his own site too. Respect. There are two reasons, really, for my neglecting to bring attention to this sooner. Firstly, Sibling Whispers was not yet up and running at the time of this development as a regular feature highlighting what is happening elsewhere. Secondly - and a good deal more frankly - while it's obviously quite flattering to receive the odd testimonial, I was a tad reluctant to draw attention to it lest everybody out there conclude my ego had maybe taken flight.

I walk a tightrope, motherf@ckers! Of my inescapable, and no doubt faintly ridiculous, angst.

Anyway; thanks, people. Your support is greatly valued.
