  1. Yes!!! I keep thinking this blog is dead, and then it creeps up to the top of the Martorialist blogroll right when I least expect it. (At the end of the year!) Thanks for not deleting your blog, like so many other authors of infrequently updated blogs. Also, I hope you're thinking about coming out with a short story collection, record review compendium or some purchase-able collection of your writing. Because you've got the gift. (The gift of writing well.)

    1. Damn, thanks a lot for reading man. Really appreciate it.

  2. The Agallah hyperlink doesn't lead to an Agallah song.

    Is this the HL Rick Roll?

    1. Haha! Here's the link here:

      Thanks for catching that.

  3. I wanted to ride for Ag's Point Break but it bothers me that he says 'on fleek' on there. Agallah songs should not feature trendy viral slang.

  4. That Mach track got snatched down real quick.
