I received a fun piece of fan mail this morning, and I share it with you, unedited.
While your music is passable and occasionally interesting/clever, your blog is very embarrassing. While I know that, by definition, blogs are truly childish, “bloggers” should at least be able to write well and not talk to readers they do not know as though they are close friends. You do neither. You should try to understand that most people do not know you and probably do not wish to, and your fan base is not as large as you think. I happened upon your site after hearing a piece of yours recently and was somewhat intrigued by it. After seeing your site, I am just embarrassed for you. If you think people are interested in what hotel you are staying at or how you like your martinis, you are very mistaken. Your writing makes you sound like a much more immature person than I hope you are.
Sorry to be so critical, but you should realize the impression you make on people (or at least one person) you do not know. And don’t belive your friends if they tell you how great your blog is. They are either wrong or trying to humor you.
Amen, Dan. Amen. I will totally drink to that.
