    I wish you had more songs up. Ha. I was enjoying the adventure. I noticed you had two songs that mention redirecting one's journey, and several driving references. i enjoyed listening. I have no idea what kind of song we could work on together, but if you're ever in the market to branch into something I could work on, I'd be honored.

    So - seems I suddenly have half a song I would dearly love to send your way. Dunno if A) you've got the time & interest and B) what the protocol for passing around audio files that are still under construction. If you've got any thoughts about that, let me know. I'd tweet, but that's not a loop in which I presently find myself.

    Tell me about it. When I was their age I had to learn how to dj on the street.

    Thanks for dropping by the Snow Song, Phil. Listening to Get Ready as I write this, so of course I am following you closely this year as always and hoping for the annual Phil/Nancy song.

    Adding you to my list of songwriting heroes. It's a very short list.

    Hi, I put something in the Dropbox folder - hoping you still can access it and can read the note. very rough quality but had to be quick and none too loud

  • @drewb92 7 weeks

    The songs are in there somewhere. Hoping I don’t have to remove them surgically but time will tell.

  • @joshbelville  7 weeks

    Ooh, I just realized I could fix that (the giant head in Soundcloud thing). Too bad, I know you'll miss my pretty face.

    Re: the twitter co-write, I'm not currently a twitter tweeter, but "which is a kind of famous" is a good piece of lyric right there I think you just co-wrote with yourself. If you use it. You'd get to be internet famous!
