  1. Hi Daniel. I value your opinion so I’ll ask this. How many cds of a group does a person need to have to be a serious fan. Also do you think multiple copies of the same cd is necessary?

    • There are two levels of seriousness:

      (1) a copy of all CDs in print, and

      (2) a copy of all CDs/LPs/tapes/8-tracks in and out of print

      • Good criteria!

      • Thanks! 🙂

  2. Once again Scott F.has struck gold in the choice of Matt Fouch.

  3. Sorry I didn’t get to meet you at NQC. I wanted to. I did get to meet Diane Wilkinson on Wednesday. Very sweet lady.

    • Sorry – not knowing what you looked like, I didn’t know to look for you.

  4. Well I left on thursday. I can text you some pictures of me with some various singers.

    • I don’t use a cell phone. 🙂

      • I figured you’d find amusement at the apparent oxymoron of “texting a picture”. 🙂

  5. Since this is open thread, I will ask if you have seen the movie “Bernie”, particularly the scene where he sings along with the Florida Boys? Jack Black actually does a pretty good job with the song and there were several other songs in the movie that we can all sing along with.

    • I haven’t, but I’m sure others who read have. I just can’t bring myself to sit still for two hours! Before that time is up, I’ll surely have thought of something else, writing or otherwise, that I could be doing!
