and what would you do if you saw this message pop up in your comment box or your myspace mail or email or wherever you receive words from strangers?...

not that you know me or anything, but I'd be untrue to myself if I did not ask you if you would burn a copy of the 21 songs on a CD and send them to me...

ok, so I am ridiculously hopeful (and perhaps impetuously presumptuous), but you know you don't have to and I'll accept a no without considering it rude, so I am hopeful you'll accept my request without considering me rude even if you decide it's too much trouble to do it...

see (or at least I hope you don't mind seeing a bit more), I am a new music addict and yours is the first site in a long time that actually played on my computer (it's old, my computer, and the usual myspace music player and most others don't play on my computer)... and I don't know most of the songs (or artists) in your mix and I like what I hear and you'd be doing a great service to mankind (or at least a great blessing for me) if you'd at least share a song list with artists with me because it's not too often I find a mix someone else made that I like...

hello, I'm ric (maybe I should introduce myself?), I'm not quite as naive or innocent as I may appear, but I am hopeful that this world still has friendly people in it who are willing to share positive energy and smile at strangers and spend a little time sharing music... I really do think that makes the world a better place and I want to believe this world is not as cynical and corrupt and suicidal as it usually seems...

and so, this is me, honest and open and often embarrassing to people who are uptight and trying to be normal... I hope you don't mind... and whatever you decide to do with my request here, I hope you are at least smiling and find much fun in your day, night, and life...

thanks :)


yeah, imagine no possessions... and imagine sharing all the world... and imagine caring enough to be aware and alive enough to want to actually do it... and imagine the excitement of believing in love and not just remembering, but actually being as we were at that breathless moment in our lives when we were our most open, most honest, most innocent, most eager to learn and grow and make new friends and share the wonders of music and everything (and laughter, dont forget laughter) with new friends who become, in that moment, like friends weve known forever...

I live in that strange and beautiful moment ever hoping someone else will join me for the fun and forever of trust... and while waiting for that elusive someone, I make these leaps of faith hoping others will too cuz, after all, we are still the same inside, just children looking for friends and fun and trust and love... even if most people forget or simply refuse to admit it (dumb grown-up games), a few of us can not only imagine, but be and do and share...

meanwhile, the 21 songs referred to can be found (and heard), at least for the moment, right here... the message, however, might not have gotten through to its intended recipient as myspace came up with its #1 page, the error page, three times as I tried to send the message three different times... of course I might have bugged the crap out of someone too if the messages did get through, but thats the trouble with sites that become too big for their britches...

still, I am firing more and more neurons over at myspace because music is sliding back into my life more and more from everywhere (including under my skin) with much assist from Precious who is finding herself music hungry all the time lately (yay, finally, somebody in my offline world is into music and into exploring new music to boot... of course she is into exploring only new music she or her friends find, but then, nobodys perfect)... and theres lots of music to explore over there (and someday I will have a computer that can actually play it so I can listen to it, but thats besides the point)... heck, Im even blogging there (yes, yet another I must add to the list)...

and then theres always the RealTime blog and the onion...

maybe I am as naive and innocent as I appear and I just use babbling irreverence and silliness and cynical sarcasm to disguise it so I am not completely written off as an idiot, not that I care much what anyone thinks of me cuz friends and my partner in life will love me for all I am when I am as honestly me as I can possibly be...

I wish someone would come find out already...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...

you know that box to the right on the dland entry page called recent public entries?... what do the asterisks mean?... and the bold?...
